Property Description

Rainbow Hostel is situated less than 1 mile west of Dingle town centre. The hostel is a large family run farmhouse. It is an ideal starting point for nature lovers, hillwalkers and is located at the beginning of the stunning slea head drive.

Nestled in the rugged Irish countryside in Co. Kerry on the west coast of Ireland, the Rainbow Hostel is a relaxing oasis where you can enjoy cooking in our huge wooden kitchen.

The Rainbow hostel offers camping and both private and dormitory style accommodation. It is an ideal starting point for nature lovers, hill walking and the Slea Head drive, yet near enough to the music and action of Dingle Town.

Please no hen or stag parties, individual bookings that are actually a group booking will not be accepted. Please note we are not a party hostel. Quiet time is observed after 11pm to ensure all guests receive a good nights rest. View House Rules

    Lovely place. Great farmhouse, spacious, nice people and staff. My only negative feedback is that it's a 20-minute walk from Dingle on dark country roads.

    Had a really nice stay at Rainbow Hostel. It was a bit far out of town but they state this online so wasn't a surprise and taxis were cheap. The staff were really accommodating, had no problem with a guest being in the common room with me and got me a towel to use as I forgot mine. The hostel has a really chill vibe and a really nice big homely kitchen and reception area. The receptionist who was on when I arrived both nights was so nice and helpful, I think her name was Caroline.

    The hostel is a couple km from the town center but very walkable. It has a good staff, a comfy feel and very clean. The downsides were that there was no comfortable seating in the evening (just the kitchen tables) and the showers were not hot with those silly push button controls.

    Not a good experience. Really loud, people screaming and carrying on in the middle of the night, did not feel very comfortable or safe. Facilities were lousy and had no hot water. Staff was nice though, and it was a short walk to town. I guess you get what you pay for.
