Dún Chaoin Hostel is part of the An Óige chain of hostels and is located on the Dingle Way on the periphery of Dunquin. The Blascaod Centre is a five minute walk from the hostel and Kruger's Pub and An Portán Restaurant are also a short distance away to the south-east.
Guests should note that the hostel is closed between the hours of 10am and 5pm. It's also important to realise that there is no shop in Dunquin, anyone wishing to cook their own dinner in the hostel should purchase their food in either Ventry or Dingle before arriving. Those wishing to eat out in Dunquin are advised to pre-book their meal in advance.
A second night in Dunquin is recommended for those who are hoping to get out to the Blasket Islands. If the ferry can't make the journey due to rough seas, there are some other fine loop walks in the area. When continuing on the Dingle Way, walkers can arrange through the hostel for their luggage to be transported to their next accommodation.
