Myself and my boyfriend booked hillgrove last minute. We weren't expecting very much from it after reading other reviews but we were pleasantly surprised. The room was clean and fresh. Same goes for the bathroom. The decor could do with being updated but it was fine. The bed was actually very comfortable which we were surprised about. The pillows had... More

This place is ideally located just outside the main town but only 5 minutes walk away. The rooms are basic but clean and tidy. The nightclub wasn't on the night we stayed which was probably good for noise reasons. Great value for money!

We booked a triple online. We got a call from the front desk stating that they no longer had the triple left. They offered us the dormitory room. Which I understood at the time was 6 beds with an en suite bathroom, but we would be the only ones in there and they were throwing in breakfast as well since... More

Stayed here for one night while passing through Dingle, the room was lovely and great value for what we paid, reception staff were very friendly and very helpful they printed my boarding passes for me, there is a nightclub next door so might be noisy when that's opened. Great location too for all of Dingles great pubs..

We stayed in the shared bedroom, which was large and clean. It had enough showers and bathrooms for the whole room. It was an older building. Breakfast wasn't included. There was a nightclub next door that wasn't open when we were there, but I could see this making it a bit loud.

Amanda E, Thank you for your comments. We're happy to see that you were satisfied. As you mentioned, breakfast wasn't included. This is now a feature common to all establishments, as most visitors prefer the option of excluding the cost of breakfast from their bills. Have a safe onward journey. Kieran, Owner. More

Fifteen of us stayed for my sister's Hen and they couldn't have been more accommodating especially with last minute drop outs and add ons. Our rooms were all situated together and were very clean, one of the girls had an issue with her mattress but it was changed for her when she asked. We went to the niteclub on the... More

This place was so wonderful. Staff was pleasant, helpful, kind and just a delight to deal with. The hotel is just a couple minute walk from the main strip of pubs, so it's SUPER easy to walk to them but far enough away from the noise you can get a great night's sleep!!! It's also right by the mart, super... More

The bouncers here were really nice. They are very steep in price at tenner entry but the inside is nice and of course the Dingle natives are great! Staff inside were also very friendly I must say. Really good spot.

I think I have found a new low in hotels. I booked 2 rooms for a Friday night stay with friends on holidays from the US. On arrival the hotel looked fine, inside a little older than expected and bedrooms very tired. Sean on the desk recommend a place to eat down town and a pub or two for us... More

We make it very clear to all prospective guests that there is a nightclub adjacent to the hotel, which is open on Saturday nights. This is not something we try to hide.
