We stayed only one night, but waking up to the view was amazing. Room was spacious and clean, bed was comfortable and breakfast was wonderful. Location is a bit out of the way from Dingle so be prepared to drive.

I only spent one night here, as I was leaving the next day for my trip back home, but what a wonderful place! Not just the location or the spaciousness and cleanliness of the B&B itself, but the delicious (and plentiful) food and the welcoming hospitality of the hosts, Phil and Michael Brosnan. The next day, Michael drove me to...

I hiked the Dingle Way with my husband and we thought this was the nicest B&B on our adventure. The room was nice/clean and the bathroom was large. I also enjoyed the sitting room adjoined to the dining room. It was very comfortable and had a view of Smerwick Harbour. This B&B is also very close to pubs/shopping if you...

The best room we had in our whole visit to Ireland. So very comfortable, squeaky clean and relaxing; our window overlooked a field of sheep! The owners were so gracious and helpful. We had car troubles and she called to get us assistance and calmed us with a big pot of hot tea and homemade trifle! That hit the spot....

This was our second time here. We stayed here in August 2011 and fell in love with it and the town, so much so that we brought our Daughter and Son-in-Law. We, two couples (Mom & Dad with Daughter and Son-in-Law) stayed for two days in two rooms. All of us wished we could have stayed much longer. This is...

Absurdly perfect, and the standard by which other guesthouses will be judged for the rest of forever! Large, comfortable, pristine room, excellent bathroom and shower, spellbinding view, heavenly breakfast... Just impossible to find a single, trivial fault. Fluffy champagne carpet glowing with cleanliness (for example) and shop open all hours next door for whatever you need. Quiet, beautiful, located a...

Hostess was wonderful. We knew we would be after check-in getting to Imeall but wound up being even later. The hostess was wonderful. Very welcoming. She let us in and turned around and went back to Dingle to explore the night life. The Small Bridge pub is open late and the people friendly. Breakfast was good and the views very...

My wife and I walked from “inn to inn” along the Dingle Way for five days. The B&Bs we stayed in were chosen for us by HillWalk Tours, who provided an excellent package. All of the B&Bs were quite good, and we assume that that is partly because HillWalk has a great deal of experience in this area and chose...
