Very laid back. About a 5-10 minute walk out of a small town but would be hard to navigate to or from without a vehicle, although we did meet a traveller who was busing. Brian was charming. Also best sleep I've had in a hostel yet!


Very big space a lot could be down and keep lawns cut first impression is everything

Simple hostel but nice and clean, really good value ! Breakfast was even included with a range of cereals, bread and jams. Tea and coffee available all day. Brian was really nice and helpful. Well located, about 20mins drive from Dingle, you need a car though. Would definitely recommend that hostel. The only thing was about security in the hostel, the front door was always open.

Nice facilities however without a car, it's about a 30 minute walk into town, which is also very small and limited as far as pubs, shops and groceries. Still a nice facility though and rooms are lovely


Very quiet nice hostel in rural area 1min drive to shops and pubs in Annasouil village 5min to Inch beach,just few steps outsite door large green area with stonishing view to mountain,quiet nights not like in this hostels lacated in Dingle city centre where people singing on the streets just outsite the window till 5am,central heating .Bryan owner very friendly,large kitchen area,I would recommend for all ages and familly trips long stay ar short.


1st off, this hostel is NOT in Dingle . It's about 15-20 mins drive away. It is, however, nice because it's in a secluded, quiet, peaceful area. It had nice , comfortable , spacious facilities . It was a good value for my money .


a good hostel for a trip at the dingle peninsula. the rooms we had were fine, though one room was really warm and the other quite cold because the heating wasn't functioning. though half of the group liked it better to have a cool room during the night, there wasn't really a problem. the kitchen is spacious and the free breakfast was a good day start! the staff was really friendly.


Brian was very friéndly and nice. Before arriving we had spoken over the phone in which he told me that this hostel is not located in dingle but the bus can leave you right infront of the hostel. My best advice would be is to make sure you have a car to move around that área.


Had a nice stay in Dingle Gate Hostel. It was a great base to explore around the peninsula, and the famous South Pole Inn is nearby as well. The owner Brian was very friendly but the best thing about the hostel was to be woken up by a cock-a-doodle-doo from under our window! We got surrounded by chickens and a baby chick when leaving, it really made my morning.


Beautiful room with very nice furniture, clean, everything as it should be


Proprietor was very polite, good about things being as they should be, and friendly. Some hostels are tight with the heat; this one encouraged turning on radiator to stay warm. Bed was most comfortable I've had in a hostel (twin room). Rural setting has wonderful views, and a walk to town is easy enough unless you have luggage beyond a backpack.


We love the cordiality of the hostel. We are very grateful for Mr. Brian for your attention. Luciane


It's all good


It is a hostel neglected and very ugly


Dingle Gate was one of our favourite hostels in Ireland. The location is only convenient if you have a car but is amazing if you are looking for a quiet night away from large towns. The hotel is extremely clean and Brian was very accommodating.


This is a really chill place, a bit out of Dingle, thus it would be more convenient if you have your own transport. All in all, a neat place to stay.


Best hostel I've been to in Ireland, Brian seemed run off his feet but was lovely and accomodating to everybody!


Very relaxed fun place to stay!

Very easy going place. Brian is a great fellah, he passed me on some terrific recommendations for attractions around the area. The hostel is close by a village that I can recommend is good to visit for a night out if you don't feel like going all the way to Dingle.


We had a great stay
