    Gorgeous hostel. Felt right at home for my week stay. Bedrooms were warm with a fire lit sitting room and television. Shower and toilets upstairs, very clean. Kitchen had all needed utensils, microwave, kettle and toaster. Wifi was very good. The location of the hostel is just off the marina with a fabulous view and only a 3 minute walk to supervalu and very central to the rest of Dingle town. Pricing was very reasonable for what I had received. 100% will visit again. Thank you so much.

    Such a lovely stay - quiet at this time of year but Helen was lovely and was very diligent to make sure I was safe after my excursion up Mount Brandon!

    Lovely affordable place with great conversation and advice on local attractions. Only one other couple staying there the night we got there, otherwise had the place to ourselves. We were able to comfortably make both dinner and breakfast there. This isn't like a hostel in the city with a huge shared kitchen and common area and tons of people. We stayed in both kinds on our trip and enjoyed both. They're just different experiences so people should adjust their expectation for where they are:)

    I have stayed in every Hostel in Dingle:; Rainbow (a bit far out of town), Grapevine, Hideout (doesn't do family rooms anymore) and a dingy place by the roundabout. Lovetts is a place I will be returning to and I am not sure what made it fall under my radar for so long.

    We stayed in Lovett's during our hike and it was perfect for what we needed. The manager was a bit abrupt at first but we ended up having a nice chat later. Only thing a bit problematic during the pandemic is that the kitchen is too small for more than one party at the same time but it's not like anyone would have been able to see that coming.

    The place is ok. The host is ok. Even though I had a bad experience with our roommates. 2 guys got drunk and did a messy in our room in the overnight. Also there was one couple cooking at 11 pm our room was just beside the kitchen I could hear their laughing when they hit the pot... The place is OK but the experience was bad. There is no rules. Which is a pity especially in a Pandemic.

    The location in town is excellent, everything else was just very basic or below standard. typical low-standard-building, wasn't exactly sparkling clean either :S Didn't feel as comfortable as I usally do in hostels, the family running the place was very friendly though. Overall I find the price quite high for what you get
