We came across this sweet place during our Ireland journeys. Though the hotel.com booking came in late, the Hostess didn't know we were coming And she had her whole family in town, she made us feel so welcome! I came in with quite a headache and she was so kind. Our room was actually a sweet two-story cabin just to... More

This was the loveliest B&B we stayed at in Ireland. Spacious room, beautiful decor to the entire place, an excellent breakfast, and a lovely and beautiful host. She directed us to a great little pub. We will be back.

In August of 1997 I stayed at this lovely B&B on the north shores of the Dingle Penn. I was horseback riding with a group, under the leadership of our Ride Master, William O'Connor. It was elegant and friendly then. I always remembered going nuts over the brown bread, and having had an all around terrific experience. I rediscovered this... More

Had an amazing time in Annette's holiday rental across from the Guesthouse. The cottage is beautiful and so homely. We were there for a week and would have stayed for four more if we could. Annette is a fabulous host and anything we needed she provided. Would recommend this place highly.

Few places in my experience exceed their five-star rating; this is one of them! A luxurious room sumptuously appointed and with a view to due for from the feature window. Breakfast was a treat in itself, and the staff are friendly and knowledgeable. It's expensive, but you certainly get what you pay for!
