“nice place”
Reviewed 22 June 2012

Had two rooms for two nights. B&B has many pros with few cons.
Pros:
* location, edge of village, with easy access and parking
* clean and comfortable rooms
* owner's and staff all very friendly and helpful
* the room with a double and twin bed had a nice large bathroom
Cons:
- tv remotes did not work in either room (not a big deal since spent limited time in rooms)
- single room had small bathroom (closet converted to ensuite?), the shower was exceptionally small. Note, this was small even compared to the smaller standard shower sizes typically found other Ireland/UK/Europe B&Bs.

The B&B where we had reservations gave our room to someone else, so we arrived at the Alpine late in the day & they very graciously accomodated us. The room was a bit small for 3, but neat & clean. There was no lift & dragging our suitcases up 2 flights of stairs was a little tiresome, but we were happy to find a place to stay at the end of a long day. I would definitely recommend the Alpine to anyone who is visiting the town of Dingle.

Stayed as part of a small group, booked last min and we were accomdated no problem. Very friendly welcome from owner, clean rooms, large modern bathrooms, little dated but well maintained and good value.
Breakfast was excellent, finished at 10am which is a bit early but when the last person in our group joined us at 10:40am he was offered a full breakfast without even asking which was a great touch, he only opted for scrambled egg but the full breakfast was available if required.
Plenty of parking.
All in all a good stay.

While visiting our daughter in Cork, we took a 2 day trip to visit Beara, Dingle, and the Ring of Kerry peninsulas. We stayed at Alpine for just one night, and we were happy to have a quiet, clean, and spacious triple room. We slept well, in spite of a raging storm outside. A happy Aussie type dog greeted us anytime we were in the parking lot. Because of the size, there was not quite the personal attention we are used to at other B & Bs; however, because it was just one night, it was perfectly sufficient. The entire place is kept up quite nicely, with nice furnishings and comfortable beds. The breakfast is in a sunny room, and there was a great selection of breakfast foods. The employees were helpful and hospitable. I would recommend this B and B to anyone needing a place to stay in Dingle, and it is close to the downtown area.

Room Tip: We were on the 3rd floor, so lots of stairs and no elevator, that I knew of! This was not a problem...

The Alpine Guesthouse is very nice, easy to reach by car, yet within short walking distance to restaurants and pubs. The staff was friendly and helpful. There was a full breakfast with good variety. Our room was fairly large, with a desk and space for luggage.

Situated a five minute walk from main commercial street, this three story B&B is rather large compared to others in the area but still provides a quiet atmosphere next to the harbor. Ample breakfast selections served by pleasant staff. While missing the more personal feel of a smaller B&B, the rooms are clean and comfortable and baths have plenty of hot water.
