You Heard It Through The Grapevine

Dont’t take our word for it – here’s what our visitors have to say:

I spent two nights in the Grapevine Hostel and had a great time! Everything was perfectly clean, the kitchen sufficiently equipped and the living room area comfortable and cozy to hang out. I got in touch with travelers and the staff very easily – thanks to them, my stay in Dingle became even better.


Great budget choice in a very expensive place like Dingle. Good wifi, clean facilities and a helpful staff. Definitely would recommend for fellow solo backpackers making their way through Dingle!

I loved my stay at grapevine hostel! The staff are super friendly and helpful. It’s a very small and cute place which made me feel very secure and gave me an “at home” feel. Would highly recommend staying here.


Out of all the hostels I stayed in while in Ireland, Grapevine was by far my favorite. Not only were the staff incredibly warm and friendly, but the space was very homey. I want to come back to Ireland only to visit Dingle partly because of the experience we had at Grapevine.
