My husband and i stayed here two nights on our honeymoon. We were supposed to stay at a B&B a few doors down but the owner had lost our booking. Luckily for us she called Joe and Julie to see if they had a room with a view for us and they did! Julie is a wonderful host she took...

We greatly enjoyed our 2 night stay in Dingle thanks to Julie and Joe - they are passionate about Dingle and making First Cottage comfortable and inviting. They can give you the best insight on Dingle and the surrounding Kerry area. The house is just gorgeous and right on the bay, a quick walk to everywhere you need to be...

I spent three nights here with my fiancee over the New Year and I cannot express enough thanks to Julie and Joe, what gracious hosts who made us both feel so welcome, the kids were great and they even cooked up some special seaweed and honey remedy for my cold! The room was lovely, bright and clean, immaculate in fact....

I almost don't want to give a good review so I won't have trouble booking it next time. But Julie and joe were just the best. We visited in october of 2010. Beautiful location, right on the water, very clean and homey. It was our first stop on our honeymoon in Ireland and I wouldn't have had it any other...

We had the opportunity to spend two nights with Joe and Julie. The accommodations were lovely and was located close to many of the pubs and restaurants. We were made to feel welcomed. We had a great view of the bay from our room.

Julie and Joe are just amazing and kind hosts. It is a lovely place and I had a view from the sea from my room. They gave advice on where to eat and what to see. Close to the center too. The room was clean and warm and the bed comfortable. It was not cheap as they did not have...

Just one night in Dingle is not enough - but touring the West Coast of Ireland keeps you on the move. It was tempting to stay in Dingle more than our planned one day/night, because of two main reasons : 1) We saw Fungi the dolphin ! A well spent 16 Euros for over an hour hunting, spotting & excitement....

Dingles first is located a very short walk to town center right on the water front. Our accommodations were clean, spacious ,comfortable  with beautiful views to the bay. Joe & Juli and family are the ultimate of warm, friendly and gracious hosts, we felt more like friends visiting rather than traveling guests imposing. This is why we chose to stay...

Julie and Joe were great hosts. We had a lovely room with a view of the marina. Julie knows a lot about the area and Ireland in general. She gave us some great tips that brought us to some of the most beautiful places we had ever seen. Dingle is a really neat town and the Dingle Peninsula simply cannot...

Julie and Joe are lovely and made this stay very special. Breakfast was very generous and we enjoyed our stay. Two small notes, the shower was bizarre as it seemed to oscillate between piping hot and ice cold and also the bedroom was basic but great value for money and would definitely recommend it for a stay.
