Although John was away during our stay, his dad was there for us and made our stay so enjoyable! We were a group of five and we had two rooms for a two night stay. We definitely felt at home and all agreed that this leg was a trip highlight. The accommodations were clean and nice and the breakfast (fresh eggs and bread!) was such a special touch! Would definitely return and recommend Dunloe View Hostel to others!
John is so friendly! His hostel is very clean and cozy. The bread in the morning was great. The hostel is in the perfect location to see Killarney and especially the gap of dunloe. We would definitely stay here again if ever in Ireland.
John was very spontaneous when we came later and also was he very helpful. He gave us some good advices for trips around the area. The place is very clean and gives a feeling of home. We enjoyed the stay at Johns a lot. We recommend it perfectly for a stay in this area.
john is probably the happiest person you've ever met. there's seriously a smile on his face everytime you see him. you can guess at his traveling experience because his hostel is just optimized at every corner. i think i've never seen a hostel as clean as his.
John nous a accueilli les bras ouverts, de bon conseil quant à notre séjour. Le B&B est bien situé et idéalement placé pour visiter les environs de Killarney et les péninsules du sud ouest.
We really enjoyed our stay in this hostel, it was like being at home as long as you are sharing the house with respectful people. John and his father are very nice persons, their garden and animals delighted my children and John was always there when we needed him.
The twin room was perfect, quiet and comfortable. John and his father are very welcoming and their hostel is well located, near from the touristic sites of the Kerry. We spent good times in this county for our road trip in Ireland. Breakfasts with the other guests was pleasant and user friendly.
