We have been welcomed by Declan, who showed us the place that happened to be extremely accomodating, clean and warm. The breakfast was average, but our host made sure we were all content. Declan then gave us a few tips as for where to go eat and drink, and also where to ask regarding the boat cruises. As we told...

This is a great hostel to stay for a quick night or an extended stay. The staff is over-the-top friendly and the location can't be beat. The room had a bathroom and they provide a nice little continental breakfast in the morning.

We stayed here for 2 nights in a private room and were quite pleased. The staff was very friendly and very helpful (they even called our tour guide to confirm our booking). The location is excellent (close to all the pubs, grocery store, bus stop) and they have an excellent fireplace in the common room where everyone could relax and...

I came back here just to feel the homey-ness of the place. It's cosy and quiet and has a great vibe, interesting books to read, a kitchen that just begs you to cook in and staff who are happy and nice and who know what they are talking about. The free tea and coffee all day is a really nice...

We, as a couple, stayed here for two nights in a double room. The room was really nice and had a rather big private bathroom. Everithing was perfectly clean and cozy! We slept very well, as the bed was perfectly comfortable and the hostle was totally silent at night. Breakfast did even offer orange juice and joghurt besides toast and...

This hostel was a great base to rest and explore Dingle town on our stopover while walking the Dingle Way. The room for two was clean and comfortable and was good value. The staff were helpful and there to answer any query . There is a clothes wash and dry service for a reasonable charge. Wifi was strongest downstairs. My...

My stay and this hostel was not poor, nor was it great. It provided a roof over my head and a warm, dry place to sleep. The staff members were friendly enough. The room seemed a bit dingy. The bathroom was of moderate cleanliness. If I travel to Dingle again, I will splurge for more cozy accommodation.

Feels like this place is living off its Lonely Planet entry, which gives it rave reviews, which I felt it really didn't live up to. The room was fine, just very dated and not especially clean. By comparison to the other hostels I stayed in on my two week trip, it was really poor value and didn't feel particularly warm...

Wifi didn't work, the lady working sat outside complaining about her job and how she was to take off on leave without telling the owner, while we sat inside waiting for assistance at reception. Our beds had springs sticking in our backs every which way and we woke up sore and my friend even had a bruise on her rib...
