    The Grapevine Hostel was by far the best hostel we stayed at during our time in Ireland. We stayed at 2 other hostels, and two air bnbs, and the Grapevine was our favorite. Julius is the man, helped us get everything figured out and recommended some things to do. The place was clean and cozy, we wished booked it for another night. I highly recommend this hostel.

    Grapevine is in a great location right in the city center. Free street parking for cars on main road. Hostel was nice and quiet, as it's the off season, but the volunteer working there - Lothaire - was great - very friendly, welcoming, and accommodating. Very homy hostel, great for long-term travelers looking for a cozy space with a well-equipped kitchen and a bit of a break from the hustle and bustle of larger hostels.

    Great casual atmosphere, very close to pubs and shops, and the staff is very friendly. A great hostel to meet new people to explore the city with, although the rooms are quite spartan and the walls are very thin. Had no trouble sleeping while I was there, but I imagine it can get noisy very quickly. Perfect for outgoing, social travelers.

    Julius and staff at The Grapevine were as inviting as the hostel itself is. Definitely my favorite hostel in Ireland.

    Julius was very welcoming & helpful. Would def stay there again. Good luck with the hostel. Everything has been lovingly attended to and the breakfast, presided over by Luisa was perfect for our needs. The bed was super comfy too. Loved the pillows.

    Was only there 1 night during the week but staff was very kind. Probably nothing happens in Dingle but the security was pretty lax, no locks on bedroom doors or for your stuff. Otherwise, great location and comfy bed.
