This is not the best of places to live in Dingle, it's messy and not very well maintained. Further, the rooms are alright, the bed was not too great though. For €30, if I had more time, I would have found a better place. The wifi did not work in the rooms. Now that all the bad is out of... More

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

Very relaxed and friendly. Woodburning stove in lounge area. Good selection dvds. Brian the manager sleepy but very helpful. Take ur own table tennis balls and bats. Quite a way from village but ok with a car. Rooms basic and clean. Shower hot. Has goats and chickens around.

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
