I've stayed in several hostels around Ireland and although this isn't the worst I've stayed in, this certainly isn't the best. I'm glad we didn't have a room right next to the kitchen because it would have been way to loud to sleep. The communal bathrooms were right across the hall and the showers were down the hall.

Great camping/ hostel with excellent facilities in walking distance from Dingle town. Took us 10min to stroll. Shared kitchen area, shared shower/toilet block which does the trick. Camping out front or at rear. Nice hosts and no strict rules. Great for sightseeing or hiking holidays for all ages.

I have stayed here before through the years as a girl guide & had great experiences but unfortunately the same cannot be said for my most recent visit. I had arranged with a member of the Rainbow staff back in June to come from cork and camp with friends on Saturday July 23rd & they said no problem, no need... More

Shower, toilets (all clean) and a big kitchen for a cheap price. Quite places for tents. A little bit far of the town but if you call they will pick up you by car. Nice welcome. A good place for travelers

Excellent location 1.3k walk into Dingle town centre ( first 300m no footpath or street lightening so bring a torch). Well equipped campers kitchen everything you could possibly need. Clean facilities and showers had hot water. Staff friendly and dropped us into town when it was raining using the courtesy car. Great value would definitely stay again

This was a cool place to spend our last night in Corca Dhuibhne hiking and camping. Although I generally love the idea of wild camping, it is nice to have access to the facilities such as showers and kitchens that formal campsites offer. The Rainbow Hostel comprises a large building with dorms and private rooms, but also space for tents... More

Rainbow Hostel is in a super cute location, it's nice to be surrounded by greenery!! Don't let the distance from town put you off, because there's always a handy shuttle going in and out, several times a day. Showers/toilets were great, beds were comfy, and the kitchen was big and well stocked. Would recommend!
