We had a tough wet, windy muddy walk on the Dingle. We made it here tired and exhausted. We were welcomed, shown to our tiny cozy room. Lelia served us hot tea and biscuits and all was well. The dinner was unexpectedly delicious, first class and filling. We were refreshed happy the next day she packs us a lunch and...

We stayed here as part of our Dingle Way walk. We were made very welcome and offered a drink. Our room and ensuite were small but to be honest it wasn't an issue. We had a beautiful 3 course home cooked meal and a lovely bottle of wine! The dining room was lovely, a light conservatory with vines growing complete...

We stayed here one night as part of our hiking the Dingle Way. The room we had was small and simple with a tiny bathroom but comfortable. We had a homemade dinner which was excellent and the same was true for breakfast the following morning. The owner of the inn was attentive to any needs we had and spent a...

We stayed here on our Dingle hike. We were in the extremely cozy attic room which we loved. It was raining out so it was really wonderful to be served a terrific dinner in their grape trellised 'sun' room while listening to the rain on the roof. I've forgotten our hostess's name but she was wonderful. After the great breakfast...

Perceptions could differ on the rooms. Very clean throughout, some could seem cramped if you are traveling the area by car. For those walking the Dingle Way, you'll find the rooms quite cozy after a long-ish trek in the outdoors. Lelia put together a meal that would earn her at least one Michelin star in a different venue. A very...

My sister and I stayed at Glen Dearg on our holiday walking the Dingle Way. We had a lovely upstairs attic bedroom. It was by far the largest room we stayed in during our trip. Unlike all of the other places we stayed, owners Tom and Kristin also serve dinner in addition to the traditional breakfast. Tom did all of...

Perfect location and such potential! Our room was small with steeply slanted ceilings. The bathroom was small and very cramped. They advertised wifi but when we arrived they told us they decided to get rid of it because it rarely worked. Hard to believe since the innkeeper lived very close by and had it to run the business. Another odd...

Three dogs and lots of healthy cats greeted us outside, and Kristen and Tom made us comfortable and welcome inside this charming older home. We were hiking along the Dingle Way, and really enjoyed our overnight stay. Tom cooked an excellent dinner which we enjoyed, warm and snug -and smug- in the conservatory while it dumped rain on the glass....
