Camped here for a few nights last year with friends and really enjoyed it so we all decided to go again! Rang to book but was told if only camping no need to book, just arrive on the day, no problem! We arrived after 3 hour drive, walked inside and was told no way could we stay, we hadn't booked... More

Stayed here for 3 nights with my partner and small dog camping. Very friendly staff that create a great atmosphere making it a very comfortable stay. So close to everything but far enough that it's still quiet and tranquil. Facilities were top notch, showers clean and hot. If your looking for cheap accommodation in dingle this is the place.

Camped in the garden twice over the summer. Accommodation in Dingle is a fairly pricey affair but Rainbow offers the chance to camp for less than €10 in a nice big garden with access to a kitchen and decent shower and toilet facilities. It's a nice 15 minute walk into town along a country road and the pitches are scattered... More

We had booked a campsite at Camp, which turned out to be slightly misrepresented by its advertising (!)....so we bailed on that one and drove over the Connor Pass (worth a drive) to Dingle. Found Rainbow Hostel. Decent price, nice pitch, good facilities. Shower and toilets are unisex. Huge kitchen shared with those in the hostel part - well equipped... More

There is an immediate air of warmth and relaxation about this place from the moment you arrive. I shared a room with 4 friends- it was clean and warm. The hostel is located about 5 mins drive from town, so it was ideal for us. Ended the night here playing a few tunes with other guests- it was brilliant. The... More

This hostel isn't quite in town, but it is possible to walk to town if you want (maybe 15-20 minutes). We had a car and had a difficult time parking since their lot was full, which isn't great but I guess they can't just get more parking. The staff was nice but is a smaller operation and the employee on... More

Very nice friendly time spent here. I would surely go back. I enjoyed the walk to an from the town. Reasonably priced. Very comfortable. Kitchen well stocked with everything needed to cook your food. Free milk and tea bags. What people didn't use they left in the fridge and wrote FREE on it. If you want reasonable clean accomodation ..... More

We took a group of high school students hiking on the Dingle peninsula. Luckily, we spent two nights at this hostel and found it to be absolutely wonderful. It is just off the beaten track, making it quiet and peaceful in the surrounding countryside, but yet close enough to enjoy the town of Dingle. The rooms were comfortable with an... More

I'll start off by saying what could be improved, a stronger wi-fi connection/more bandwidth (Internet is basically worthless in the kitchen/common area), and adding breakfast in the morning would be a simple & easy, but lovely addition for a hostel about a 15 min walk from town. Otherwise, the Rainbow provides a comfortable and homey atmosphere, one that is easy... More

We camped here in the back garden and enjoyed our stay. The owners are friendly and the showers/toilets were spotless. We stayed for 2 nights midweek and it was nice and quiet. We didnt use the kitchen but it seemed well equipped
