The Grapevine Hostel
Ranked #4 of 23 Specialty Lodging in Dingle
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed August 16, 2012

I loved this hostel from the minute we arrived. The welcoming we got was lovely and the staff are dead sound. We were in Dingle for three nights and two of those nights we spent in the grapevine. It was an great place and the atmosphere made it even better. We hope to go back again next year to stay for longer. The location was also great and great value.

Excellent hostel right in the heart of dingle with a lovely selection of rooms, great cpoking facilities and extremely friendly and helpful staff. Stayed two nights and could have happily stayed longer - quiet and comfortable despite being so close to main street. Double room ensuite at the top of the house with wooden shutters on the windows provided a fantastic nights sleep - better than the 4* hotel we moved onto elsewhere in Kerry!

A group of us stayed hear for the weekend, its in a great location, right in the middle of town! The hostel has a great atmosphere, the fire is always lighting in the living room which is great when your green from the booze!!! Our "babysitter" as we called her (Elaine) couldn't have been nicer! I recommend this place to everyone!!!

My daughter and I stayed in the Grapevine for three nights during the 'Festival of Lights' and 'Other Voices' November 2011. The hostel was very welcoming, warm, homey, clean, bright and comfortable. The kitchen was well kitted out with everything you could wish for - very large stove oven, electric oven, microwave, and all the usual cutlery and crocery. The dining area was clean, spacious yet homey. My daughter and I took a double room with ensuite @ €24 per person per night (the most expensive rate in the hostel and worth every cent). There were also dorm rooms which were very clean and neat looking. There is a walled courtyard out the back with a table and chairs and I saw a barbeque too. (being November it was not the time to try it out!) The owner, Siobhan, and her assistant Johnny are very friendly, efficient, helpful, cheerful, fun, kind and knowledgeable. And the best thing - The Grapevine is only ten steps from the main street and all the wonderful pubs where you will find wonderful music sessions! The people of Dingle are also friendly - there is a lovely atmosphere in the town. There are lots of modern and traditional art shops and venues, which Siobhan or Johnny can direct you to. Horse riding can be arranged by Siobhan too. We only had four days there but we didn't want to leave. We will be back every chance we get. If you aren't sure of where to visit in Ireland, Dingle and the Grapevine should be on your list. So many people have visited only to return home, pack up and move there! Now you couldn't get a higher recommendation than that! And yet the native Dingle people, like Siobhan and Johnny, have kept the true Irish character of Dingle very much alive.

Room Tip: There is the option of a few double rooms if you like privacy.
