We stayed for three days in early April in this marvellous hostel.Location is outstanding with views to die for from the dining room, patio and our bedroom.Clean bedroom and bedding with comfortable bed and good ensuite. Great breakfast and easy access to all the Dingle peninsula has to offer. We climbed Mount Brandon on a cloudless day and were rewarded...

This place was amazing value; the cleanest, freshest most accommodating hostel I've ever stayed in - and with amenity to feel just like home. It made us loath the expense of some of the 'peeling at the edges' B+Bs we stayed in. We received such a warm welcome, and help with drying our hiking boots on arrival. Despite catering to...

Staying at the Mount Brandon Hostel was the highlight of our trip to Ireland. It is in a tiny village called Cloghane (pronounced "Clo-hon" with accent on the 2nd syllable). Cloghane sits at the foot of Mt Brandon, nestled along the water. You could not ask for a more beautiful, idyllic location. The dining area looks out onto a gorgeous...

This is not hosteling as it used to be. This is a different level. Firstly the location is amazing. The view from the dining room is priceless. The rooms are all ensuite and very clean. The owner, Mary I think, was so nice. Will be back.

Very friendly staff, and the whole place felt clean and comfortable. We had an en suite room which had a clean bathroom and a powerful shower. Free WiFi throughout and there is even breakfast included. I'll visit again next time I'm in the Dingle.

Myself and a few friends stayed in the Mount Brandon Hostel for 2 nights in October of this year. Arriving late due to traffic, we were very happy that the manager didn't charge us for a late fee, and seemed very reasonable given the hour we arrived. The hostel itself is a very new and modern building with beautiful decor...
