We stayed there for a night and it was a nice experience. We shared the hostel with a couple of families and it was really easy. Nice breakfast, confortable rooms and great games room. The situation is great, close to Dingle, close to Annascaul lake and Inch beach.

Accommodation clean and great facilities. Fantastic games shed out the back that we got great use from. Perfect location if you have a car. Hostel owner friendly and helpful. Offered us a lift when we needed to get to inch. Very reasonably priced. Would definitely stay here again!

Stayed at Dingle Gate hostel with my two kids for two nights earlier this month. Brian very helpful, attentive and friendly. Good location to Annascaul and near Dingle. Kids loved feeding the food scraps to the hens and seeing the goats, this was their first Irish hostel experience. Great kitchen facilities and nice hot showers. My son left his new... More

This is not the best of places to live in Dingle, it's messy and not very well maintained. Further, the rooms are alright, the bed was not too great though. For €30, if I had more time, I would have found a better place. The wifi did not work in the rooms. Now that all the bad is out of... More

Dingle Gate was one of our favourite hostels during a road trip around Ireland. The location is only convenient if you have a car but is amazing if you are looking for a quiet night away from large towns. The hotel is extremely clean and Brian was very accommodating. I would definitely stay here again!

Oh my where do I even begin? 1. The location is INCREDIBLE - yes you have to walk a little ways from the town Dingle to the hostel but it is a pleasant and quick stroll! I'm sorry but you can't visit the beautiful "walking county" of Kerry and not walk. Say hello to the adorable sheep along the road... More

Spend a night camping in the gardens and was really amazed at what good value it was. Had full use of the Hostel for cooking and showers for 8 euro a night! Possibly the cheapest I've stayed anywhere in Ireland. Facilities are basic but clean and it's about a 25 min walk to the South Pole which is definitely worth... More
