Staying at the Mount Brandon Hostel was the highlight of our trip to Ireland. It is in a tiny village called Cloghane (pronounced "Clo-hon" with accent on the 2nd syllable). Cloghane sits at the foot of Mt Brandon, nestled along the water. You could not ask for a more beautiful, idyllic location. The dining area looks out onto a gorgeous... More

This is not hosteling as it used to be. This is a different level. Firstly the location is amazing. The view from the dining room is priceless. The rooms are all ensuite and very clean. The owner, Mary I think, was so nice. Will be back.

Very friendly staff, and the whole place felt clean and comfortable. We had an en suite room which had a clean bathroom and a powerful shower. Free WiFi throughout and there is even breakfast included. I'll visit again next time I'm in the Dingle.

Myself and a few friends stayed in the Mount Brandon Hostel for 2 nights in October of this year. Arriving late due to traffic, we were very happy that the manager didn't charge us for a late fee, and seemed very reasonable given the hour we arrived. The hostel itself is a very new and modern building with beautiful decor... More

Excellent hostel and perfect base for walkers- very clean, great kitchen facilities, substantial breakfast on offer but you can also cook your own food, lovely dining and sitting areas, outdoor patio/seating area with stupendous views across the bay, within walking distance of 2 pubs (which both had music the weekend we were there). The owners are super friendly and helpful.... More

We spent 2 nights at Mt. Brandon Hostel and had a fantastic stay. We are a family of four and reserved our own room, with an ensuite bathroom. The beds were comfortable and the room spacious (rare for hostels!) The kitchen was modern and well stocked, with everything you need to cook meals. We picked up groceries in a nearby... More
