My friend and I stayed in Dingle at the Hideout for four days during the Food Festival and I could not have had a more positive experience. My friend already knew the staff from a previous trip but I really enjoyed getting to know them as well (especially Margaret, she rocks!) They were extremely helpful and suggested great places for...

Michael was a lovely host. But the room was very small and dated. Bunk beds uncomfortable. The shower hose didn't fit in the rail so u had to hold it. A part from that it is in a great location and good price just needs a bit of updating

I use this hostel only as a place to sleep as I was touring around the west of Ireland. I was very surprised about the general vibe of Dingle. It is a great little town and this is a good little hostel. The hostel is basic but does the job. Just bear in mind Dingle is a party town so... More

I guess there is something about Dingle but as soon as I stepped in the Hideout Hostel, I felt like I was home. There's a B&B feel to the place ( well my room was a two bed room that I shared with someone I didnt know. We had a bathroom to ourselves which was better than I had in... More

My 18 year old son and I stayed here in late July, 2014. The place is great for a young crowd and he made friends all around him immediately. The atmosphere is lively, active, busy, with a great central kitchen that was buzzing at all hours. The only drawback is that our room was not very clean.... spiderwebs with dead... More

This has been my first true hostel experience, and I can only praise this team highly! Not one negative circumstance comes to mind. The staff has been beyond helpful in finding our group activities around Dingle and beyond, they have made absolutely sure we are 100% comfortable and have everything we need, and the hostel itself very lovely and clean....

I have been staying in the Hideout Hostel for about 2 and a half weeks now, and have a week left. It has been one of the most pleasant experiences I have ever had! All of the staff are so accommodating and nice. If (when) I come back to Dingle, I will absolutely be staying here again. After a strange... More

This hostel is close to town but very quiet. The staff are fabulous - especially Patrick. All the staff were welcoming and very helpful. The dorm rooms were a bit cramped but I had the fortune to be put in a double room by myself for a night due to bookings. That was heaven. The breakfast is simple and adequate.... More

I've stayed there a little bit by chance because the other hostel was full. I don't regret it and I even came back for 3 more days. First, the hostel is ideally situated in Dingle, a lovely city with a lot of things to do, good restaurants and pubs. Then, the staff is really kind and helpful, they gave me... More

We have visited Dingle several times before, and knew that it would be on our itinerary for our cycling and hiking group of 11 people. The staff was very helpful and they allowed us a safe place to store our bikes. The kitchen is nice, and we prepared a sit-down dinner for our whole group which was fun! The location... More
