Wonderful guy runs this hostel. Very accomodating, friendly, and an amazing sense of humour. Thank him greatly for an amazing stay.


An average hostel.


The guy running this place is the nicest guy you'll ever meet. He really tries to make your stay a good one. The place itself is perfect for a good night rest. It's close to a few Dingle landmarks and the price is just right for what you get.


Brian (the owner) has a heart of gold and is a great guy. He put on a fire for us in the evening, the beds were cozy and the whole place was very comforting. Kitchen was well stocked. Fyi this hostel isn't anywhere close to Dingle town but if you want peace and quiet, it's the best.


Hostel was easy to find, in nice location. Brian was a great host and we had a nice chat while watching the World Cup.


Great location near Dingle. Room was clean and tidy and our host was very friendly.


Staff was relaxed and not this uptight kind of people, loved it! Especially if you have a car it is convenient... Easy access to Dingle and have a good old farm(ish) hostel experience.


Thank you Brian!!! You sure know how to welcome guests. I had a wonderful stay at the Dingle Gate Hostel.

Hey there Maria. Thanks for the good review. I am glad you had a good time here with us. It was a pleasure to meet ya!


The Manager (Brian?) is very nice and friendly. If you're lucky you get fresh eggs from the hens on the premises. Good Basis to explore the Dingle Peninsula. We liked very much that our room was heated even though it was June !


very nice place but lots of spider webs! The minute I walked into the front door my face got stuck in a spider web and I almost ate the spider! Otherwise it was very clean.

Hey there, Not sure where you seen all the spider webs. I do clean the rooms everyday myself and make sure I get any spider webs on my travels. Sorry about the spider web you walked into, but they are quick builders :).


Very comfy beds. Brian is a great guy who made us feel genuinely welcomed. Everything was great, and we loved the goats and chickens!

Brian is an awesome guy who will go far out of his way to make sure you have the best stay possible. Highly reccomended if you need to enjoy the countryside for a few days


The hostel is basic but has all the facilities you need and is good value for money. The beds were comfortable, the shower was hot and clean. The breakfast was adequate. The kitchen could be better stocked.
