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

Rainbow hostel was the perfect place to stay in the begin of september. My room was clean with a comfortable bed.The place is crowded with all kinds of people from around the globe: you can hear different stories every day. Families as well as single travelers. There's a spacious and well equiped kitchen indeed. Near Dingle town if you're searching... 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

This is my second time staying at the rainbow hostel. I enjoyed the first stay that i then recommended 7 other groups to stay at the same time. However this stay was regrettably let down by the staff. The night porter was rude and was moaning about my sister arriving late at night. He was put out about her arriving... More

We stayed at the Rainbow hostel for 2 nights, one in the 12 beds dorm and the other in the 6 beds dorm. The hostel is very well located, a few minutes walk or drive from Dingle. The staff is very helpful and professional and the bathroom and kitchen are very clean. You can also camp there (in the garden),... More

Loved the idea. A hostel with loads of grassy areas to camp on. Full use of kitchen inc fridge. Communial toilets, spotless but a little awkward if ur having a shower and someone is using the loo. The price was €9 a night which is super great as there is a free shuttle bus to drop you in town. Its... More

I was a member of a pilgrimage group with 10 teens and 4 adults that spent 2 nights here at end of June. We had 7 teenage boys and two male adult leaders in one room and 3 girls and 2 adult female leaders in another and both rooms were fine. Plenty of bathrooms/showers, a nice communal kitchen, and beautiful... More

I camped in the hostel's grounds for four days in July. This was a pleasant and relaxing experience, which reflected the general atmosphere of Dingle and the area. For €9 per person per night you can pick a pitch in the hostel's grounds, which consists of the back and front lawns. It really felt like camping in someone's garden (in... More
