“Wonderful stay, friendly reception, the coziest linens in Ireland”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 5, 2011

Absolutely wonderful stay. Chuck was our warden and he was warm and friendly. Our room was clean, with mismatched linens making it feel homey. The sheets had the amazing wonderful softness that comes from being washed so many times. It felt like we stayed in Grandma's guest room! Chuck filled us in on GREAT tips for dinner, and gave us ideas on where to hit for the most entertaining music. We loved our stay and will be sure to return when we are back in Dingle!

Hideout Hostel in Dingle was in a very central location. It was clean and safe. The staff was very helpful and friendly.

This was the best hostel we stayed at while in Ireland. It was within walking distance to a lot of pubs and in a safe area. The guy working for the proprieter knew where to go for different kinds of music, and told us that they sometimes turn people away who look like they are up to no-good, so it just reinforced the safety of the hostel all the more.

More like a B&B than a hostel. Very cute homely lounge area, and nice homestyle kitchen. The owner and his mum were very friendly and accomodating. My partner and I were deciding between a double or 4 share room, but were told that if we booked a 4 share we'd have the room to ourselves anyway. It was definately a welcome change from the usual loud, cold and dirty hostels. My only complaint was that the hot water ran out at the end of the night!

The Hideout offers comfortable accommodation & friendy service at a good price. Only problem was with hot water for shower on my last morning. Dingle is a small town and the Hideout is pretty much central to everything. My room, as well as the common areas, were clean. There is free tea & coffee available. Free cereal & toast for breakfast. Micheal & Chuck are friendly hosts more than willing to offer suggestions on pubs, restaurants, tours, etc. I stayed two nights and will stay again if I make it back to Dingle.

Spent two nights at The Hideout last week and I'd recommend it to anyone traveling to the Dingle area. Chuck was incredibly knowledgeable about the area (as well as other areas around Ireland), and gave us some really great tips about exploring the area. He was very friendly and made you feel like you were right at home. Beds are comfortable and getting free breakfast in the morning was a treat (since no where else we stayed offered it). We will absolutely be staying here again!
