Great place to stay! Super cute hostel with comfy beds, large rooms, good breakfast, and clean! John was super nice and gave us advice on where to go and was very welcoming upon arrival. It's in a great location near both Killarney and the Gap of Dunloe. I would definitely recommend staying here!
Lovely, comfortable room in a perfect location! Hosts were very welcoming and friendly, with a wealth of local knowledge. Best bread and eggs I've tasted in Ireland!
We stayed with John for one night. We got a very warm welcome and our room was nice and comfortable and the bathroom was very clean. John was very friendly and was extremely helpful giving advice about where to go for dinner and traditional music. It certainly made our evening a great experience. John's place is situated in a quiet neighborhood. We enjoyed having breakfast with the other guests.
We only stayed at the hostel for one night. John is welcoming and has a warm and lovely place. Bedroom was comfy and everything was clean. Thank you again John !
Dunloe View Hostel ist ein sehr schönes Hostel für alle Altersstufen.
John hat uns sehr nett begrüßt und war, wie auch sein Vater, immer hilfsbereit. Zum Frühstück gab es selbst gebackenes Brot und frische Eier von den eigenen Hühnern. Am Abend hatten wir einige nette Gespräche mit den anderen Gästen. Das Hostel ist ein perfekter Ausgangspunkt für den Ring of Kerry und die Dingle Runde.
Wir haben uns dort sehr wohl gefühlt und kommen gerne wieder.
Nous avons été très agréablement surpris de la propreté de notre chambre et de sa salle de bain privée. Le petit déjeuner en self service permet de se restaurer copieusement. John a été au petit soin avec nous, il nous a permis de planifier la journée qui suit dans les meilleurs conditions. Il aime recevoir et rencontrer, et cela se ressent. Le rapport qualité prix est donc imbattable, allez y les yeux fermés.
John's hostel was a wonderful place to stay, especially for seeing Killarney, the Ring of Kerry, and the Dunloe gap area. The room was nice and comfortable, breakfast was great, and meeting the other people staying at the hostel was a lot of fun. The living room with a fireplace was very cozy, especially on some of the chilly Irish evenings. John was an excellent host, very knowledgeable about the area, and extremely willing to help with trip recommendations or planning. He was also available anytime that we needed anything during our stay.
