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!

I arrived here as I couldn't find another campsite near Dingle that was a) open in March and b) could take a small van. I ended up staying for 5 nights and loved it. Great location just outside town (about a 20 minute walk, 10 to the distillery...) with clean facilities and free Wi-Fi. the manager and his son were... More

I have spent time in various hostels but this one was different. It was very clean, had comfortable beds, good bathrooms, a well equipped kitchen and was located in a beautiful location but without the people, this hostel would have not been so special. From the moment we were picked up by the hostel shuttle, given a quick tour of... More

We had a fantastic time at the Rainbow Hostel, One guy told us he arrived for a couple of days 5wks prior and just stayed on. we toured from Kilmare for 8 days on the Wild Atlantic Way and must state that Dingle was the highlight for us, you would think you were abroad in a quiet Spanish seaside town....
