Dingle Peninsula Hostel
This is the only hostel on the beautiful Dingle Peninsula to come complete with a traditional Irish pub. After a day touring the stunning landscapes of Kerry, return to the pub for a finely drawn pint of Guinness and get the warmth into you thanks to our inviting peat fire.
The pub is as popular with locals as much as backpackers, making it an ideal place to meet new people on your travels. If you visit during the weekend you’ll find the bar bustles with customers from the local community, hikers, and sightseers all looking to relax and enjoy a good pint.
Our hostel is calm and quaint, and have proven to be a popular destination for hikers and hill walkers.
With a unique setting on the Dingle Peninsula (an area of spectacular natural beauty), its very own classic Irish pub, and all the modern conveniences you might expect, our hostel is ideally suited to hill walkers seeking to explore the Kerry region or backpackers seeing this unspoiled landscape by other means.
Located in the small Irish village of Anascaul, you’ll be pleased to find that this is a place not yet overrun by too many tourists. Located just a 20 minute drive from the town of Dingle on the N86, our hostel is perfectly suited for those seeking to explore this stunning region.
Anascaul is located in a ‘Gaeltacht’ or Irish speaking region of the Dingle Peninsula in County Kerry and is within minutes of some of Ireland’s most dramatic mountain hikes, glistening lakes, arcane oak forests, and gloriously sandy beaches which are ideal for surfing.
The current hostel opened in 2005, with then Irish tourism minister John O’Donoghue cutting the ribbon, but before that we were a family owned B&B known as Brackluin House for years and years.
We offer eight clean and comfortable bedrooms, each of which has an en-suite bathroom. Our spacious hostel also includes a guest kitchen and medium sized dining area. There’s also a fine common area where you can mingle with fellow guests or perhaps read a book while soaking in the warmth of our roaring turf burning fire. Breakfast is also included for the duration of your stay.
The ‘Randy Leprechaun’ is the name of our onsite traditional Irish pub which threatens to overflow on weekends such is the popularity of our live music sessions with locals and guests alike. During the week, the pub is quieter and serves up a great pint of whatever you’re having. The fascinating mix of visitors from around the world and interesting locals ensures you’ll want to spend quite some time here indeed.
Check-in time for the hostel is between 16:00 and 20:00.
The hostel closes from 14:00 to 16:00.
