We finished off a 3 night hotel break in Sneem with 1 night at the Phoenix. We (2 Adults and a ten year old) stayed in one of the Romany Caravans and really enjoyed it. The hosts were very welcoming and the breakfast the next morning was exceptional, we were sick of fry ups after the hotel. It's not luxurious,...

booked three nights in a gypsy caravan which was fun and different but after one night decided to switch into the B&B. The Phoenix is a homey place, good for families and like staying with a relative. Organization is lacking and they have a lot of transient workers, which is fine, but they are inexperienced. If you want to be...

I'm very late writing up this review as we stayed last September but I have to say we had a fantastic time. Yes the caravans are small but it's not for luxury 4 poster beds we went were for it was for the experience.... and it was fantastic. We played in the apple Orchard in the afternoon with my 2...

Portions were so small it would have been a joke if it wasnt for the price. First we had some of the course served, then wait for 20 mins, then the other half of the same course arrived. Vegan/Veggie is a joke, its basically a fish place for anything of substance. If, like us, you visit dingle and think WAY...

We stayed here in the gypsy wagons for a night. As there were 5 of us, we booked two wagons. We really enjoyed our stay here and will definitely be back. It is really relaxed and obviously full of love from the owners. The kids really loved their stay in the wagons and they were really cosy. They squealed with...

Stayed at this place as a last resort, wish I hadn't. The food was inedible, after a very questionable nights sleep the owner rolled out of bed in the same clothes as yesterday and asked me if i wanted anything for breakfast... no thanks! This place is alright if you are used to doss-houses and hostels, not for me though....

on arrival at the b&b we were greeted by a confused young man who didn't seem to know about our booking, it got sorted in the end and we were shown upstairs. There was an overpowering musty smell & dampness entering the upstairs and room, the room itself appeared to be fine but on a closer look the bedding wasn't...

stiniSwitzerland, Owner at The Phoenix B&B, responded to this review

As you were on a groupon voucher we need to verify the special offer on arrival and i remember we upgraded you to a larger ensuite room at no extra charge, this took a little longer than our usual check in, and i am sorry the experience was confusing for you. Of course our rooms are cleaned thoroughly and bedding...

The food here is outstanding, and the presentation of it is exceptional, both the substantial breakfast and the evening meal. Lorna and her team go the extra mile - they took us in although they weren't planning on opening for the season until mid-March, and they let us choose meal times. My partner wasn't well and Lorna brought up cups...
