Lovely quiet home from home tucked away in the Dingle Peninsular. Really friendly people and excellent host Brian. Very near Inch beach, Dingle and easy hikes. Breakfast is included and the rooms are very very clean. Cant beat for the price.

Brain was such a friendly and relaxed host - just what we needed after a long drive in the car! The hostel itself was quirky and everything you'd expect from a hostel. I loved the animals and the fresh eggs from the hens in the morning. The room was great - twin with our own bathroom and lovely view of...

VERY NICE WELCOME BY A VERY NICE OWNER. Brian has a very nice hostel and is constantly around if anything is needed. Games room on site is fabulous, with the one draw back that it is right next to where people camp so after 9.30/10.00 noise limits are very controlled. For most that would be fine, and you will have...

We stayed there for a night and it was a nice experience. We shared the hostel with a couple of families and it was really easy. Nice breakfast, confortable rooms and great games room. The situation is great, close to Dingle, close to Annascaul lake and Inch beach.

Accommodation clean and great facilities. Fantastic games shed out the back that we got great use from. Perfect location if you have a car. Hostel owner friendly and helpful. Offered us a lift when we needed to get to inch. Very reasonably priced. Would definitely stay here again!

Stayed at Dingle Gate hostel with my two kids for two nights earlier this month. Brian very helpful, attentive and friendly. Good location to Annascaul and near Dingle. Kids loved feeding the food scraps to the hens and seeing the goats, this was their first Irish hostel experience. Great kitchen facilities and nice hot showers. My son left his new...

This is not the best of places to live in Dingle, it's messy and not very well maintained. Further, the rooms are alright, the bed was not too great though. For €30, if I had more time, I would have found a better place. The wifi did not work in the rooms. Now that all the bad is out of...

Dingle Gate was one of our favourite hostels during a road trip around Ireland. The location is only convenient if you have a car but is amazing if you are looking for a quiet night away from large towns. The hotel is extremely clean and Brian was very accommodating. I would definitely stay here again!

Oh my where do I even begin? 1. The location is INCREDIBLE - yes you have to walk a little ways from the town Dingle to the hostel but it is a pleasant and quick stroll! I'm sorry but you can't visit the beautiful "walking county" of Kerry and not walk. Say hello to the adorable sheep along the road...
