This hostel isn't quite in town, but it is possible to walk to town if you want (maybe 15-20 minutes). We had a car and had a difficult time parking since their lot was full, which isn't great but I guess they can't just get more parking. The staff was nice but is a smaller operation and the employee on...

Very nice friendly time spent here. I would surely go back. I enjoyed the walk to an from the town. Reasonably priced. Very comfortable. Kitchen well stocked with everything needed to cook your food. Free milk and tea bags. What people didn't use they left in the fridge and wrote FREE on it. If you want reasonable clean accomodation .....

We took a group of high school students hiking on the Dingle peninsula. Luckily, we spent two nights at this hostel and found it to be absolutely wonderful. It is just off the beaten track, making it quiet and peaceful in the surrounding countryside, but yet close enough to enjoy the town of Dingle. The rooms were comfortable with an...

I'll start off by saying what could be improved, a stronger wi-fi connection/more bandwidth (Internet is basically worthless in the kitchen/common area), and adding breakfast in the morning would be a simple & easy, but lovely addition for a hostel about a 15 min walk from town. Otherwise, the Rainbow provides a comfortable and homey atmosphere, one that is easy...

We camped here in the back garden and enjoyed our stay. The owners are friendly and the showers/toilets were spotless. We stayed for 2 nights midweek and it was nice and quiet. We didnt use the kitchen but it seemed well equipped

I stayed for two nights in the female only dorm. There are no locks on the dorm doors and the hostel has a very casual feel. The room was rather cramped and there is only a dim light in the ceiling. I had a top bunk otherwise there would've been no chance of reading before sleep.The showers and toilets are...

This hostel has a really down to earth, comfortable vibe. The man who runs the hostel is very nice and helpful - his wife was also very friendly and gave my friend and I advice about local events. There are two kitchens and plenty of bathrooms to guarantee no wait. The walk to main street is 10-15 minutes, so this...

Realistically its about a 20 Minute walk into the town from the hostel and at the time we stayed the shuttle bus was out of action!! Comfortable stay with good facilities and great on a bargain budget.

I stayed in the 6 bed dorm as a solo female and I had a great time. The staff are very friendly and helpful, the facilities are good, and the location in very pretty. It's only a short walk (maybe 15 min) into town so you can still visit the pubs at night. Great experience, I would definitely recommend it...
