Stayed three times in this hostel, would never go elsewhere in Dingle. The Grapevine not only has the most welcoming staff and a charming and cosy interior, this place has a soul. One of my best experiences traveling around Ireland !

A group of seven of us spent a night in the hostel recently and couldn't fault the experience. The dorm was surprisingly spacious, with 8 large single beds and an ensuite. Both the kitchen and the outside patio area were particularly lovely, going beyond what any of us had expected and the staff were extremely welcoming, friendly and helpful. For...

If your going to stay at a hostel in Dingle, there's no doubt the grapevine is your best bet. Affordable, excellent location, and a helpful and friendly staff. The bathrooms aren't the most advanced in the world but they function properly and give you plenty of space. They also don't have a "continental breakfast" laid out for you every morning,...

We stayed here for a weekend in June, and will definitely be returning here again! The rooms were clean and great value for money. The staff were lovely and really made us feel welcome. The hostel is in an excellent location right in the centre of Dingle. Would definitely recommend this hostel if you want to stay in Dingle.

VERY wonderful place! We will stay here again and again when we return! The rooms were clean and quiet. The location is right in the center of Dingle so you can walk to any pub, shop, etc. all under 2 minutes but still far enough away from where the buses drop so you aren't surrounded by the day trip tourists...

Our stay in the grapevine hostel was awesome. We (two German girls in their mid 20th) travelled the irish cost with a campervan and wanted to have a longer, more comfy stay in a "real" bed. The rooms are so very cosy, that you think you would sleep at home. The kitchen is fully equipped and everyone, not only the...

This hostel is well located in the beautiful town of Dingle. The staff is very welcoming and helpful. The beds are comfortable and clean. The bathroom is basic. The kitchen and living room are small but nice. Overall, very charming and I liked it a lot.

I must couch my review in that this was my first hostel stay in many years. I spent 2 nights in their private double room en-suite. Unfortunately, the mattress was on it's last gasp and made for an uncomfortable and not restful night's sleep. The bathroom was adequate and clean. The water hot. The place is a converted 100+ year...

Being an annual visitor to Dingle I stumbled upon this little gem about three years ago and have stayed here every time since. The owners are lovely, the common areas are comfortable & cosy and the hostel itself is only a stones throw from the Main St. meaning it is extremely convenient but also doesn't have to deal with any...
