Excellent place to stay in Dingle. Looking forward to going back next summer. Would recommend a stay here. Good location. Relaxed atmosphere. The campsite is a good option too - looked nice and chilled.

This was a great time of year to visit as it was nice and quiet. We had a lot of room to ourselves and had full use of the kitchen to make our breakfast and lunch. Comfortable beds. Very friendly and helpful staff. A very homey hostel. Plenty of toilets and showers.. we really enjoyed our stay 👍🏼

We spent a night here on our 10 days of camp-travelling.The place is very pleasant, and the caretaker is a brilliant man. Everything is clean and tidy. Free use of a well-equipped kitchen and bathrooms. Reasonable prices. Highly can recommend!

Stayed here for 4 nights in August, absolutely loved it. Great campsite facilities and lovely staff. Kitchen was well stocked with pots, pans, two fridges, freezers. There's wifi in the house as well. Easy 10/15 min walk to Dingle town centre; bring a flashlight at night-time.

The staff was really down-to-earth and friendly. The shuttle from the town to the hostel is a great help and they actually agreed on bringing our luggage into town when we left as well so that we wouldn't have to carry it around the whole afternoon. Kitchen and showers are totally fine and our room was really good, too (family...

I've stayed in several hostels around Ireland and although this isn't the worst I've stayed in, this certainly isn't the best. I'm glad we didn't have a room right next to the kitchen because it would have been way to loud to sleep. The communal bathrooms were right across the hall and the showers were down the hall. One of...

Great camping/ hostel with excellent facilities in walking distance from Dingle town. Took us 10min to stroll. Shared kitchen area, shared shower/toilet block which does the trick. Camping out front or at rear. Nice hosts and no strict rules. Great for sightseeing or hiking holidays for all ages.

I have stayed here before through the years as a girl guide & had great experiences but unfortunately the same cannot be said for my most recent visit. I had arranged with a member of the Rainbow staff back in June to come from cork and camp with friends on Saturday July 23rd & they said no problem, no need...

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
