“Top of the Street, Middle of the Road”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 October 2013

We arrived in Dingle without reservations and chose Barr Na Sraide after not getting any responses from the first few inns we inquired at. We can't say we were disappointed, but neither were we particularly impressed.

The inn itself was clean and well-maintained. Check in was efficient, but not overly friendly or welcoming. Our room was #25 (ground floor near the back). There was no street noise, but we could hear other guests coming and going. The accommodations were like the inn itself - clean and comfortable enough but lacking a certain charm and atmosphere.

Breakfast was quite nice. We both had the full Irish and it was nothing more nor less than we expected. The pub is a quiet place for a drink, but again lacked some of the vivacity of others in the area.

The off-street parking was definitely a plus and greatly appreciated. We might have preferred a location nearer the harbor, but it wasn't in a bad spot. The cost was on a par with other inns we stayed at in Kerry.

All in all, we had no problems whatsoever at Barr Na Sraide, but there wasn't any 'wow' factor either.

The staff was kind to us at the inn, and our room was adequate. The walls were a bit thin, and hallway noise was noticeable. The bed was average, and the shower was weak. Even so, we had a good stay at Barr Na Sraide; the location was great, within close walking distance of many desirable locations in Dingle. The staff was very kind to us. We had an easy time parking in the lot behind the Inn. I wouldn't really recommend the breakfast; it's a little less in quality than most B&Bs in Ireland that we experienced.

It was a good place for us. I would stay there again!

Our friends & us arrived in Dingle later in the day and found that due to a music festival we could not get into the 2 B&B's we had chosen. We checked in with the local tourist office & the lovely young lady called around for us looking for accommodation. After the 3rd call she found 2 rooms for us at Barr Na Sraide Inn. We immediately grabbed it and drove off to meet Patricia our host. She was a wonderful, friendly lady, checked us in very quickly, recommended some pubs and told us she would see us at breakfast. Rooms were very clean, and the bed was amazingly comfortable. We got free wi-fi and free parking. The location was central in the village so we could walk anywhere. Breakfast the next morning was great...Patricia greeted us with a big smile and a full Irish Breakfast..with no waiting! We would certainly recommend this Inn, and the rate was very good value.

We stayed at Barr Na Srade Inn for two nights while we stayed in Dingle. It was an easy walk to all of the pubs and restaurants in town, yet far enough off the main drag that it was quiet.

Safe parking in back and a pub downstairs.

My only complaint was that we were on the top floor with the slanted roof. I hit my head when I wasn't paying attention.

Wonderful stay thanks to Patricia and Sean.

Kudos to our girl Patti! She served up breakfast every morning, always cheerful and helpful. We did laundry there and were walking distance to everything. A great place to stay. The car park is tight but behind the building. We left the car and walked everywhere.

We booked through the tour info center and thought it was down on the water. Although it was a bit of a climb through the streets of town it was well worth it. Nice people, clean room and really in the true heart of the town. The opportunity to wash clothes was great and when the dryer didn't work the girls dried and folded our stuff. Definitely work recommend a stay here.

We were three friends traveling for vacation and stayed there for three days in July. We would have stayed longer if it wasn't booked. This is a clean, comfortable and affordable hotel is family run and very friendly to international travelers. We were lucky to get a triple, with three separate beds. They have free wifi, a nice pub and free coffee and tea in the morning. Guests can pay an extra fee for breakfast. It is a no frills hotel and on the small side. A perfect place for the budget traveler.
