Slightly better than average on a budget

Another budget joint in the middle of town, Dockhoun Guesthouse presents clean rooms with a bed and bedside table, thick blanket, clean tiled floor, hot-water bathroom and overall a feel that's slightly better than most other joints in town.
The owners are very responsive. This is another popular place which fills up in high season so you might have to book ahead. Free WiFi is available and it's just a three-minute walk from the dock. It's good value and is far better and cheaper than Donevilasack Guesthouse's
rooms with private bathroom. Their restaurant at the back also has a pretty river view. Heading up the road, look for the small neon green building on the right hand side.
