About Dun Chaoin Hostel (Hostelling International)

A panoramic view of coastal and mountainous scenery awaits you overlooking the Blasket Islands and the Atlantic Ocean. Dun Chaoin and the Dingle Peninsula is the ideal base for walkers (Dingle Way, Mount Brandon, Mount Eagle), cyclists, bird-watchers, artists, golfers and dreamers!

The parish of Dún Chaoin is at the most westerly tip of the Dingle Peninsula in the County of Kerry in the south-west of Ireland. It comprises eleven town lands on the mainland and the Blasket Islands three miles offshore and it is often referred to as
"the next parish to America"

The people of Dún Chaoin speak Irish today and they are proud of the links which they have maintained with their native culture and with the descendants of many emigrants who left for a new life in America, England and other countries.

A ferry operates from the local pier to the Blasket Islands during the summer. Sandy beaches are within a few kilometres and An Daingean (Dingle Town) is 16 kilometres to the east. There is a daily bus service to An Daingean and a less frequent service to Dún Chaoin. The Dingle Way Walking Route passes through Dún Chaoin on its perambulation of Slea Head.

Beidh fíorchaoin fáilte go mórmór roimis Gaeilgeóirí agus déanfaimíd ár ndícheall a chinntiú gurb í Gaoluinn binn blasta Chorca Dhuibhne a bheidh le chloisint agat an fhaid 's atán tú inár measc.
