“Lovely hosts!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 July 2013

We`ve been there for the second time and it is just soo nice. The hosts are serving the best and biggest "All irish breakfast" you can imagine! The rooms are clean and one can enjoy a nice view on the dingle bay! They will give you great ideas how and where to spend your time! Will be back for more stays!

Room Tip: Ask for a room facing the sea!

My wife and friends were in Ireland for just under two weeks and this was the best B+B that we experienced. The accommodations were the cleanest of all places we stayed, there was a wonderful seaside view from our room, the breakfast was great, and the hosts (Julie and Joe) were exceptionally friendly and helpful! Hope to visit again!

...and we found: a room with seaview, lovely furnished with that feeling for small details - and a fantastic hospitality from our hosts Julie and Joe. The breakfast was magnificent (we enjoyed the rest of cheese and fruit salad travelling back to Dublin by train!) and also the talk sitting on the big table in the middle of the kitchen. It was one of our absolute highlights on the Dingle Way. Thank you so much, Julie and Joe, and hope to see you again!

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 great care in preparing a delicious breakfast we both ordered the continental plus with came with the fruit, veggie and cheese plates. She was so generous with the portions that we were able to take the left overs on foil for our trip around the peninsula! I wish we had had more time in dingle to see all and do all the amazing thing Julie told us about.
She has a wealth of knowledge about her town and the outlying areas an absolute delight to chat with!

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 and a free car park overlooking the water. Everything is spotless and comfortable. Get a waterfront view if you can!

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. The price was really reasonable, especially with the mammoth breakfasts you get cooked for you the next morning, wow, you don't need lunch again after that!!

The location is second to none, you are minutes from the town centre and have a lovely view out over the bay. As we will be returning to Dingle this year to get married, I will be recommending Dingle's First Cottage by the Sea to my guests.

Room Tip: Room one and Room two have views out over the harbour.

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 way. Julie pulled out a little map and drew us a rout for the best food and pubs. Joe and my husband had a great chat about fishing and made us feel very welcome. Can't wait to visit next year!!!
