Dingle accommodation: A guide to the best guesthouses, Airbnbs and hotels in Dingle
Dingle has to be one of the most idyllic towns in all of Ireland. Perched on the County Kerry coast, this place has been attracting domestic and international tourists for many a year.
Dingle is a great little base for exploring (there are heaps of great things to do on the Dingle Peninsula) and the town is packed with great pubs and restaurants.
In the guide below, we will take a close look at 11 gorgeous places to stay in Dingle, from luxury spa hotels to downtown apartments that will make you feel right at home.
1. The Dingle Skellig
Since 1969, this staple of Dingle’s luxury hotel scene has been providing a VIP experience for its guests.
The Dingle Skellig is a four-star luxury resort in County Kerry that offers some of the finest views of any hotel in Ireland.
The rooms at the Dingle Skellig are comfy and cosy, whilst the spa area includes a sauna, steam and heated indoor pool (along with an outdoor hot tub).
There’s a classy bar and restaurant here serving the best of local produce in refined surroundings (we’d recommend the steak – it’s excellent!).
You’ll regularly see the Dingle Skellig top the list as the best of the many Dingle hotels, and for good reason. This place isn’t cheap, but you get what you pay for!

Although Georgian in its style and deeply historic, this town centre apartment is somewhere light and airy too.
With stunning features like Georgian windows and an antique French chandelier, this amazing apartment in Dingle is surely one of the most classy places to stay in town.

The upstairs bedroom has a huge bed and stunning views of the nearby harbour whilst the open plan living room and kitchen are both fully stocked to help make guests feel right at home.
We particularly love the spiral staircase, which provides guests with a slice of downtown Manhattan on the coast of County Kerry!
