The Grapevine Hostel

Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed September 21, 2012

Home to the Irish very friendly, you feel at home immediately. No headlock, festive atmosphere. Simple contact and very warm. Just the best hostel and the best memories of my entire trip on the west coast. Attention you will just want it to stay or come back soon. A compelling place and an address to remember. Very good value for money and very good location in the city. Whatever you want to do the team will help you find what you are looking for.

In a touristy town where things can get easily get a little pricey, the Grapevine Hostel is a safe bet for travellers on a budget. Its location is excellent in a quirky little alley which features a nice cafe, a great restaurant (an canteen) and even a cinema. We stayed in a double room on the top floor. Décent double room for a hostel, minimum furniture. Only snag was the window: we thought we had left it open when we were in bed given that we heard everything outside so clearly, but the guitar playing was nice and didnt last very long. They have free toasts and jam in thé morning, always nice. Staffwise the girl who was there in thé afternoon was great and very pro, the guys who took over at night were very friendly indeed but seemed more on holiday than at work to be honest. Still a nice spot to recommend if you are walking the Dingle Way..

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!
