Liked: Rooms were big and clean. Plenty of cutlery and plates. Plenty of parking.

Disliked: Shower room needed a little work: old shower head and cold tap at sink not working well. If you are checking in, note that it is not possible between 1pm and 4pm.

Liked: Endroit propre, très chaleureux, surtout le pub du paddy's, très sympa. Je le recommande pour les gens qui cherchent plus la tranquillité. (j'y suis allée fin octobre en voiture, j'imagine qu'en été le pub doit être bien animé) à 20 min de Dingle.

Liked: cheapest hostel of whole trip, free breakfast, check in all hours, although outside of Dingle (15min) it's super close to a hidden gem...a lake with two mountains and hiking trails which we thought made it SO worth it because it felt so Ireland... ask a local about this lake nearby!

Disliked: bathroom wasn't the nicest

09 July 2012 Martin would recommend this property

Liked: It was convenient for the Dingle area, which suited us as this is where we needed to be for the weekend. We are a family with six children and although one did not travel with us it was a pleasant surprise for us to find we could all stay in the same bedroom ( 8 beds ) and for only € 77.00. Usually we would require 2/3 rooms

Disliked: Nothing really, slightly outdated in parts but if it were any neater it would then be a hotel and not available at these great prices !!

Liked: When we stayed we were the only ones there! Very clean rooms, friendly staff. Location a bit "out there" (it's in Anascaul, not Dingle) and no internet, but a nice stay nonetheless. Great if you want a break from the city hostel experience.

Maria Dikken

07 August 2009

Liked: Please be sure to book 2 nights on the internet if you want a free night, because otherwise they are probably full the second night and you have to move so you will not get your second night free. A lot of people had to leave and didn't get their consecutively second night free. No staff available after 8 p.m. is not really hospitable.
