the location is very good and the rooms are clean enough, BUT the owner of the place needs to have a good hard look at her self, talk about a cranky old bag, she shouldn't be in hospitality, and the power sockets didn't work...

My brother and I decided to go to dingle for a night of craic and a few beers and I booked a room in this hostel as it was cheap and close to the town centre. When we arrived we were checked into a room by what I can only describe as the most cranky and unmannerly person I have... More

Myself and my friend stayed here for a midweek work-related excursion to Dingle. The experience we had of Lovett's hostel from the very start was nothing but positive. We had certain requirements - i.e. the need for good WIFI connection, location, security - and our expectations regarding all of these were surpassed. Firstly, the location itself is excellent - in... More

One of the best places I've ever stayed! It's more like a B&B setting but with the price of a hostel. Clean, plenty of room, and comfortable. The family that owns the hostel are lovely - very friendly and warm :). And very accommodating! The location is great as well. If you come to dingle, there's no better place to... More

Rooms are a bit small but the hostel was quite empty (end of july) so we had enough room for us. The owner is bit rude; she came into our room once without knocking at the door. Shower has warm water and the toilet is good as well. The hostel is clean; there's also a small kitchen and a sitting... More

When we first arrived there was a bit of confusion with the booking (I had inquired about adding a night to our stay and the owner had muddled it up with another cancellation). Only one bed was available and we needed two; and since it was festival weekend nothing else in town was available. The owner offered for me to... More

I stayed at the Lovett's for 2 nights. It was nice and very clean, also the staff was helpful and friendly. Still I have two complaints: - Signs at the doors the visitors are not supposed to enter would have been very useful, because more often than not I was quite unsure about it. - It's stated that the hostel...

We were greeted by the daughter of the hostel owner and struck by her maturity and professionalism as she checked us in and showed us to our room. When we met the hostel owner she made us feel secure, comfortable, and welcome. Lovetts Hostel feels more like a guesthouse and is a nice reprieve from rowdy youth hostels. The rooms... More
