Welcome to our hostel

This Dingle Youth Hostel is located in the Gaeltacht area and is the most westerly Youth Hostel in Europe. Set in rural County Kerry, the hostel is surrounded by mountains, such as Brandon Mountain, just 17km away. The coastline is only a five minute drive away and features rugged cliffs, including The Slea Head Cliffs.

The Dun Chaoin features a comfortable common room and offers a variety of room types. In the mornings, the hostel serves light continental breakfast. The hostel also offers a self-catering kitchen and a dining room, overlooking the Blasket Islands. Packed lunches are available for groups, with prior request.

Ideal for whale and dolphin watching, the area is also home to a huge population of seals. The small town of Dingle offers a seal sanctuary, just 15 minutes’ drive away. Further outdoor pursuits include golfing, hill walking, and cycling.

This Hostel maybe lacks modern facilities and need better maintenance, but it's a very especial place where you feel like at home. Lovely people and lovely nature. And that's really what we think it's important. We love this place.

Beautiful location. Very nice staff. Best place to discover the Dingle peninsula, especially by bike. Only far away from the most nearby supermarket (in Dingle).

Getting to us

Getting to us

Airport
Kerry Airport. approx 1.5 hour drive from hostel
Bus
Bus service from airport. Limited bus service from Tralee to Dingle and then from Dingle to Dun Chaoin. 
Car
From Tralee follow the signs to Dingle (N86). Follow the road from Dingle to Dun Chaoin by Slea Head or Ballyferriter. The hostel is located 5miles/8km from Ballyferriter. From Dingle to Dun Chaoin via Slea Head will take you approx 45 minutes drive (this is the most scenic drive but also the most dangerous with very narrow roads). From Dingle via Ballyferriter will take you approx 30 minutes drive which will bring you along much wider and safer roads. If driving at night time and you are not familiar with the area we would suggest you take the Ballyferriter route. The hostel is located at the very top of the main road just before you turn off for Dun Chaoin. Free car parking for guests at Dunquin Hostel
Rail
Tralee (64km) - approx 1 Hour Drive
