Great place, very welcoming
Stayed in the grapevine for 3 nights in october. Great place to explore the peninsula, drink a beer, watch sports and surf in the bay on the other side of the pass. Very friendly people and good facilities. Recommend!
Clean, comfy, friendly
An easy walk from the bus station, even on a rainy night, and a stone's throw from the Dingle main street and hotspot pub An Droichead Beag. They were flexible about check-in time, had a cute sitting room where I was invited to hang out several times, and the beds had really warm comforters and the sturdiest, quietest bunk-bed ladders I have ever climbed at 3am.
A Far Away Home
I came just off the bus, not intending to stay past a couple of days. It was winter and the whole town was quiet but for the evening music from the pub just around the turn of a couple of corners. I stayed more than two weeks, content to sit by the fire at night and near the big picture window by day, watching as town folk and travel folk passed, listening to stories spun by the owner. It was a wonderful place from which to strike out and explore the area. Coming back each evening, just as night set in and the sitting room began to fill with the warm light of a new fire, felt like a far away home that had been waiting for me all along. It has been a year and I feel a pull to return. I hope my path takes me back soon.
This hostel has an excellent location, right by all the pubs and about a five-minute walk to the harbor. The rooms are ok, I stayed in a four-person bedroom (female) with an en-suite bathroom. That was nice, the shower did get hottish but the pressure sucked. The lady who runs it, while not overly friendly, was nice enough. If I come back to Dingle (which I hope I will) I would stay here again. Take the Scuird Archeological tour with Michael Collin. He's hot!
Friendly, Laidback Vibe
The Grapevine is a great place to stay and is close to everything in Dingle. It is quiet, and there are always people hanging out in the common areas. Both the dining room and the fireplace room are very cozy. If you have anything valuable (which you should not travel with anyhow) you may not want to stay here as there are no locks on the room doors. We did not have any problems with this though.
I absolutely loved staying at the Grapevine. The live-in wardens were very friendly and welcoming, always happy to see me whether on my way out to a pub or just waking up. The rooms were bright and clean, and the common rooms were set up well for meeting new friends. The cosy feeling of the place was much closer to a B&B than a hostel and I would love to stay again at the Grapevine.
I made my reservation to stay here about three weeks in advance, as I heard it was very popular during the summer. The guy I talked to seemed nice enough and assured me everything was in order. So you can imagine my surprise when I showed up and was told that they were completely full.
Me: "I made my reservation several weeks ago and was told everything was ok."
Very rude hostel worker: "Well, we're filled up, and there's no record of your reservation. I guess we forgot to write it down. Sorry."
Keep in mind this was on a Saturday afternoon in August. Not exactly the ideal time to try to find a new place to stay. Based on the other reviews, this sounds like a nice place, but I would definitely confirm and then re-confirm my reservation in the days leading up to my arrival to avoid this type of scenario.
It was kind of an unfriendly place when I went, with a GREAT LOCATION!!! But the people were very exclusive. They barely acknowledged you being there, and no one hung out in any of the common rooms. The roof in the fireplace room leaked when someone in the room upstairs took a shower. Lots of mold, but great location.
