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

This is such a great hostel - a brilliant, upbeat, smiley owner who supplies the place with its own free-range eggs from right outside; very good facilities, including a fantastic shower and quiet (!) rooms that are buffered from corridor noise by an extra internal door; a very well-equipped kitchen; a cosy, super-comfy sitting room with wood-burning stove; and of...

Nice hostel, clean and comfortable. Breakfast (cereals, toast, tea/coffee inc. in price). The owner is friendly and helpful. Good location to visit the peninsula. About 15 min. from Dingle town, 5 min. to Inch, 15 min. to Brandon Bay. Good location for surfers: 5 min. to the breaks at Inch and 15 min. to those in Brandon Bay. Also good... More

A nice, big and comfortable hostel on the Dingle peninsula just outside of Anascoul. Brian the owner was very friendly and made us feel welcome despite late notice and being the only ones there (having to heat the building for us etc). The kitchen is big and well stocked, the common room comfy with a wood burner and big TV... More
