Emlagh Country House
Ranked #14 of 75 Dingle B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 24 July 2013

Our family of 3 stayed here for 2 nights in July. We were traveling for nearly a month in England, Ireland, and Scotland, and this was one of our very favorite places. The house is gorgeous, with spacious and well appointed rooms, a huge bathroom, and comfy public spaces. Oh, and the artwork around the house is magnificent - lots of great local pieces. The breakfast is outstanding - I'm still dreaming of all of the wonderful options! Marion and Grainne took such nice care of us, from when I first made my reservation online to our departure.

We only had 6 days in Ireland and finally narrowed down our itinerary to include Dingle, and I'm sure glad we did. We fell in love with this little town and the stunning natural surroundings. If anyone is considering a visit to the west of Ireland, I whole-heartedly recommend Dingle and The Emlagh House. I can't wait to return.

Marion and Grainne Kavanagh are the perfect hosts. We stayed, not at the Emlagh Hotel, but further down the road at their lovely Water's Edge property. Our family of six, including four teenagers, was very comfortable in one of their 3 bedroom, 3 bathroom apartments with a lovely view of the bay. The apartment had all the modern amenities and was a five minute walk from town. It was a perfect home base from which we explored the beautiful Dingle peninsula.

Emlagh House was absolutely wonderful. Our room was stunning and very spacious. The bathroom was larger than mine at home! Upon arriving I wouldn't allow my husband to put anything in our room until I could take pictures of how beautiful it was. Everyone that worked there was nice and helpful. Breakfast was incredible (try the French toast!) and it was held in a beautiful dining area with large windows that look out at the coast. The location was perfect, we were able to walk to great restaurants and shops, and it is just a short drive from Inch Beach. I highly recommend this B&B and hope to make it back again someday!

We just spent two wonderful nights with the Kavanaghs. What an amazing place! The interior finish is second to none and staff are incredibly friendly and accommodating. This is truly a 5 star place which you won't want to leave. Beautiful views of the harbor and only a 5 minute walk from downtown Dingle. Very comfortable beds and wonderful breakfasts. You are bathed in luxury at Emlagh House.

This was a real find in a wonderful destination. Gracious service and beautiful rooms. We were only able to stay one night - but definitely would recommend it for several nights. breakfast was wonderful and the location is fabulous. Easy to walk to town and out to the mouth of the bay. We had a wonderful time.

My husband, son and I stayed in the Bluebell and Iris room and were able to close the external door and make this a suite. The rooms were lovely! Thoroughly enjoyed the heated floors and towel racks, the bath salts, etc. We really felt pampered. The location was convenient to "Dingle Town" so we were able to walk where we wanted to go. All of the common areas were relaxing and peaceful. We were immediately relaxed by the welcoming fire in the entry lobby. Easily one of our favorites and definitely the nicest of our accommodations durng our two week stay in Ireland

What a delightful B&B. Our Primrose room was beautiful, the location of the B&B was convenient, but it was the warmth of everyone which made our stay so special. This was our favorite spot, by far, in our 11 day tour.
