    My partner and I loved the grapevine. It’s right in the middle of town and feels like a beautiful home, especially with the warm, friendly staff. They Kept everything clean and in order while making everyone feel welcome. You won’t regret staying here (if you get the chance - they are constantly fully booked so be sure to plan ahead).

    A fabulous location. Friendly and helpful staff. Terrific kitchen set up. Fun sitting area near the reception desk. A wee bit noisy outside the window. It may be nicer to have all female dorm available, but we did not experience any difficulties with our room mates.

    The Grapevine was the perfect hostel for stay in while in Dingle. The location is perfect, the staff were beyond helpful and kind, the location within the town, were great. Only does side would just be not having a place to lock up your belongings, however that being said, I wasn’t nervous about leaving anything in the room and being out. I would recommend staying here anytime!

    Cozy and familiar hostel with very nice staff, kitchen and dining area. I wish that there would have been some kind of keys (the rooms were just open) or at least lockers to put away your stuff (nothing was stolen, but I think it would have made me feel safer). Otherwise really nice stay :)
