Our rooms were all situated together and were very clean, one of the girls had an issue with her mattress but it was changed for her when she asked. We went to the niteclub on the... More

This place was so wonderful. Staff was pleasant, helpful, kind and just a delight to deal with. The hotel is just a couple minute walk from the main strip of pubs, so it's SUPER easy to walk to them but far enough away from the noise you can get a great night's sleep!!! It's also right by the mart, super... More

The bouncers here were really nice. They are very steep in price at tenner entry but the inside is nice and of course the Dingle natives are great! Staff inside were also very friendly I must say. Really good spot.

Stayed 2 nights with a group of friends. The hillgrove was just perfect. Clean rooms, good showers and tasty breakfast. It was the staff who made it though. They couldn't have done enough for us. Very close to the town itself.
