Great hostel with a fantastic vibe. Just outside of Dingle so away from the madness ,, takes about 10 minutes to walk from the Harbour. Rooms were great (not ensuite) ,, all the necessary bits for cooking n cleaning etc Great spot for camping too ... looks like really soft lawn :) ... I will be back

This hostel has a really down to earth, comfortable vibe. The man who runs the hostel is very nice and helpful - his wife was also very friendly and gave my friend and I advice about local events. There are two kitchens and plenty of bathrooms to guarantee no wait. The walk to main street is 10-15 minutes, so this... More

Realistically its about a 20 Minute walk into the town from the hostel and at the time we stayed the shuttle bus was out of action!! Comfortable stay with good facilities and great on a bargain budget.

I stayed in the 6 bed dorm as a solo female and I had a great time. The staff are very friendly and helpful, the facilities are good, and the location in very pretty. It's only a short walk (maybe 15 min) into town so you can still visit the pubs at night. Great experience, I would definitely recommend it... More

The place its self is more than enjoyable, very quiet and beautiful ! We only stayed a... More

I don't normally write reviews but I was very impressed with this hostel and thought it rude not to - this is a charming quaint hostel with a real homey feel to it. The rooms were spotless and as we were leaving I saw our beds being changed straight away and the room cleaned. The atmosphere in the hostel was... More

Gorgeous & Homey! We loved staying here, the staff was friendly and welcoming. It was recommended by locals that we met & we couldn't have been happier!! We were lucky enough to get an upstairs suit all to ourselves with a great view!! Also there was a balcony available as well as a FANTASTIC pub right down the street with... More

As we were camping we had to use the outside toilet and shower facilities which we found to be quite clean with toilet paper provided! ! The campsite is only a 15min strole to... More

Well, the atmosphere in the Rainbow Hostel is brilliant. But that doesn't mean anything bad. The house and the rooms is clean and well-equipped. The service the hostel is pretty good. We were hiking the Dingle-Way and arrived pretty tired at the hostel. There are no shops nearby, but the receptionist offered to drive is into town a picked us... More
