Very cosy and tidy place. Place to relax and have a good night sleep to enjoy beautiful DIngle. If you're looking for a place to stay where you are allowed to drink and party, you should go to someplace else.
A nice quite and cozy family-owned hostel. The family is very kind and will gladly speak some Irish with you! :)
The room, bathroom and surrounding areas were clean and the beds were very comfortable. We did enjoy our stay in Dingle, however we felt as though the Lovett family was frustrated/cold toward guests. We felt like we were not welcome at the hostel and that we were only in their way.

I normally don't complain about bed comfort however the beds here smelt like mould, and were very very uncomfortable.
good location, and that's it! the staff wasn't helpful at all, when i ask for city map and few info, the girl answered me "there's maybe some maps left in the kitchen or go to information center" without smiling. and when i check in the kitchen, for sure, no any left. the living and the kitchen is way too small.there's no reception which make things more difficult, when i have question or need anything, i need to knock their door and their reaction makes me feel bad, feels like i am bother them
The owner is really kind. She give us a lot of advice for our trip. The hostel is near the dingle arbor in the center. / La propietaria è veramente gentile. Tutto è pulito e centrale. Veramente consigliato.
Nice stay! Close to the bus station and to grocery stores...if you walk a bit there is even a lidl. Hostel has everything thats needed exept for breakfast.
We felt uncomfortable in the house, as there were no other hostel guests at the time and the house seems to be shared by the family owning it. Rooms were clean, facilities good, and although the staff were friendly the lack of atmosphere bothered us.
Very nice place to stay, cozy and smaller, quiet and not noisy at all. Owners live on-site. In a small neighborhood outside of city center. Other hostels in town were much noisier and louder. Kitchen and showers and beds very good. Recommended!

Loved every minute of it. Great central location and staff couldn't have been nicer.
This hostel was exactly what we were looking for, and the price for 2 people in a double private room was great. We ended up staying an extra night since we wanted more time to wander around Dingle, and the location along the harbor on a quiet street but just a 2 minute walk from the center of town was perfect. The owner was great as well, she was very helpful in recommending places for food/music/sites.
It's a great family run hostel. The owner is really nice and she helps you with everything(and it even doesn't have to be connected to your stay there) And it's not just her, the whole family is willing to help. The house is cleaned every day, noone can or does enter your room without your permission. We had a great time there.
This hostel is in a quiet street near the harbour. We had a double room which was quite large and comfortable although the decor is quite dated. There is a small communal sitting room with a TV and a computer for guests which is extremely slow. The kitchen is small and might be difficult to use if the hostel was crowded.
