Showers barely heat up, even after waiting a few minutes. Room heating barely worked, luckily the other beds in the room weren't in use so we could take spare blankets. My girlfriend didn't like the spider friends we shared the room with either. No lockers available.

Hey there Chris. I am sorry you did not enjoy your stay with us. It was New Year's Eve when you arrived and there was a full house with everyone taking showers at the same time getting ready to go out. The hostel was a bit cold alright but we had been closed for 2 months before that night, I am really sorry about this. Well, I hope you enjoyed the rest of your travels. All the best Brian


We came late in the season and Brian made our stay great! Will go there again!


We stayed two nights at Dingle Gate Hostel and we loved it. Brian is very friendly and relaxed. Great man :) In the evening there was a fire in the sitting room and it was a very cosy and friendly atmosphere. Would always come back! Loved the baby chicken ;)


we enjoyed our stay. great room -we had private room- was Big, bright, lots of storing space, view from window to lovely garden which populate by goat, hens and baby chick. Brian was fantastic. working morning till night to make our stay good. he had a goof hiking Info and kept us warm with fireplace. the hostel was Big and lots of space. we liked it's location, 1 km from anascaul town. also we stayed off season so the place was not full, suited us good. would love to come back.
