Couldn't give this place six stars, so five will have to do. Everything here is class, from the accommodations, to the proprietor and her staff (who have no reservations about showing you a good time around town), to it's location - which couldn't be better. I've stayed in many hostels over my journey through Ireland and Europe at large, and... More

Loved my stay in this hostel. It has a great atmosphere which is down to the management. They are very friendly and make you feel at home straight away. The rates are reasonable and the rooms are nice.I would love to have stayed here longer. Great little place.

As a person who is not fond of hostels I was pleasantly surprised how lovely the Grapevine is. Myself and two friends stayed for 3 nights in a private room with our own bathroom. Siobhan welcomed us and was friendly and helpful through out our stay. Even though the hostel seemed quite full it was so quiet, a respectful group... More

The Grapevine Hostel was a peaceful place to stay and only a 5 minute walk from where the bus drops you off. It had working WiFi and a great, cozy atmosphere. You can do your own thing and won't be bothered by anyone, but people are friendly too. It's also right next to a bike rental place, which I found... More

I'm just back from what has to be the best hostel in Dingle. I travelled alone but after 5 mins in the Grapevine I wasn't alone for long. Siobhan the owner made me feel very at home and Jonny the manager was just fantastic, he made sure I had a nice warm fire lighting one of the nights when I... More

If you are looking for a hostel you obviously have a specific style of travel in mind, this hostel was really close to many pubs with wonderful music, the manager of the hostel, Johnny, was always available for giving directions it great pubs with the kind of music you would want to be hearing. The showers and beds were both... More

I felt safe and the bedrooms and common rooms were nice. The staff can direct you to the best places to go for an authentic experience of Dingle and a really... More

The hostel's prime location makes it ideal for exploring Dingle. Drinking is not prohibited on the premises. In fact, drink was everywhere. Fridges packed with guests' cans. Shelves in the kitchen proudly exhibiting empty vodka bottles. Definitely not a family or child friendly hostel. This makes sleeping in the hostel really difficult. Music, guitar-playing, singing and people walking the stairs... More

I was here back in July and have been meaning to write a review for some time. On a long journey through Europe this was easily one of my favorite places to stay. The host and staff were friendly, helpful and fun! The beds were comfortable and the atmosphere is cozy and encourages good times among travelers. I don't know... More

Right in the middle of town, clean and cheerful inside. Guy in charge, Johnny, was very helpful, all refreshments, teas coffee and toast were complimentary which was nice. Would definitely stay again. Very reasonable price. Shower in the room wasnt great and check out is a bit early was the only drawback.
