Dingle Gate was one of our favourite hostels during a road trip around Ireland. The location is only convenient if you have a car but is amazing if you are looking for a quiet night away from large towns. The hotel is extremely clean and Brian was very accommodating. I would definitely stay here again!

Oh my where do I even begin? 1. The location is INCREDIBLE - yes you have to walk a little ways from the town Dingle to the hostel but it is a pleasant and quick stroll! I'm sorry but you can't visit the beautiful "walking county" of Kerry and not walk. Say hello to the adorable sheep along the road... More

Lovely place to stay on the edge of town. Owner was laid back and relaxed. Hostel had everything you could need. Lovely views of the area. Nice big rooms with a massive bed. Had lots of fun staying here. Yhanks Dinglegate

Spend a night camping in the gardens and was really amazed at what good value it was. Had full use of the Hostel for cooking and showers for 8 euro a night! Possibly the cheapest I've stayed anywhere in Ireland. Facilities are basic but clean and it's about a 25 min walk to the South Pole which is definitely worth... More

I stayed here with my wife and 3 children the weekend just gone. Perfect for us. Nice big kitchen with lots of gas stoves, cutlery and all the other necessities in the kitchen. The showers were great. Despite a sign saying they took a few minutes to heat up, ours were hot in 30 seconds or less. Beds were really... More

Overall, a truly great hostel experience. The only real downside is that it's isolated, a 30 min. walk outside the tiny village of Annascaul. If you know that ahead of time, though, it's really not a problem. The owner was warm, welcoming, and generous. One of the best things about hosteling in Ireland for me is the openness of the...

I stayed here in April 2014 with friends. The hostel is NOT in Dingle, despite it's name, but just outside Annascaul, a village about 20 minutes drive from Dingle. Our room was comfortable and most importantly the shower was hot and clean, unlike some hostels. The kitchen is clean and reasonably well equipped. There is a small cosy lounge with... More
