“Sleep”
Reviewed 20 May 2014

The lodge itself is clean more like a hospital. Staff was friendly. The breakfast was good. Noise is a problem as the sound tends to echo. So if you tired getting a peaceful sleep can be a bit of a challenge.

This b and b is excellent in every way, we loved the Kerry region when we visited it so decided to stay here and found Kerry to be very inspirational indeed! This b and b was perfect as we had already visited Dingle, but wanted to stay here as it was quieter. The b and b itself is very attractive, with luxury shouting from the rooftops! Its a clean house, with luxurious white sheets, perfect bathroom and nestled in the earthy Irish landscape. We do wish we could go back to re-visit it. The landlady was super nice and helpful! There is also a traditional pub next door, which is great to sample a pint of Guinness! This house is very relaxing and we felt very well rested after our stay here. Lots of other guests were in the building when we stayed here and we took this as a very good sign! Cannot wait to return!

Room Tip: Get a room to the back and you can get to enjoy the perfect rolling green fields of the area!

My husband and I stayed here and had a wonderful time. This bed and breakfast is new and modern , yet stylish and traditional - all rolled into one.
The house itself is a fine establishment with its yellow exterior and beautiful looking well kept thatched roof. Its a joy to see tradition being kept alive in the beautiful village of Anascaul.
The house inside is ultra modern and stylish , with lots of clean white furniture and stunning art and photos on the walls- reflecting the local environment and countryside.
Our stay here was relaxing, and we felt well rested. Our room was spacious and the bathroom was luxurious with pale beige tiles . The water was always warm and towels were soft and fresh.
Breakfast was hearty and perfect for when you are on your holidays. This wonderful b and b is on our list to for the future and I feel we will return again and again. Bring your car and enjoy Dingle and the surrounding areas, as this b and b is in the perfect sleepy location to relax on your holiday.

After recently discovering the beauty of Kerry and of course Dingle, I came across this wonderful lodge, not too far from where I was visiting. It is in the traditional village of Anascaul. As I writer, I found it very peaceful to rest my head here and to think. I stayed here for a few days and mixed with the locals, ate and drank at the local pubs and of course rested my head on the this b and b's fair pillows.
This is a unique place to stay, with its traditional thatch roof , warming yellow colour and of course its daring red door, ever inviting; this house should be on anyones list for a visit in this area. True to its character its traditional yet completely modern. Decorated with the best of decor, furnitiure and of course art . It mixes the beauty of the scenery and location with its actual interior beauty, so that the guest can feel completely at home , yet well rested enough to feel one is on holiday.
Its a peaceful house, with its own personality, and after spending time there, I found it a very "inspirational lodge". Ideal location, ideal feel and of course- its staff make it the best house there is. I will be back! There is nothing better than waking up , looking out the window at the green fields and feeling like that you truely belong there.

Room Tip: Ask for a room to the back of the house, there you can see the green fields and the sheep!

Wow! What a beautiful place to stay when visiting and exploring Co. Kerry. We got a beautiful double room, the furnishings, sheets and room itself, was stunning . Pretty cool guesthouse which was close to lots of pubs . This guesthouse, I found was very big and very spacious. The breakfast area was light and airy and had lots of nice linens and breakfast bowls. A very inspirational place to stay on a visit in Kerry. The girl in the reception area too was very friendly and kind and showed us to our room. Such a kind polite, hostess!! We would most certainly stay here again when we will hopefully return in the future. Top marks to Inspiration Lodge!!

We stayed here as part of our Paddywagon tour. I had expected to stay down the block at the Ardrinane, but this lodge is a fairly new B and B owned I believe by Paddywagon. It was a great place to stay and I am so happy we stayed here. The bed was comfortable and we had a blast next door with Karaoke night at the Randy Leprechaun pub. What made the B and B excellent was the service. Therese was very warm and welcoming. She let us know if there was anything we needed to give her a call. She cooked a nice Irish breakfast and also cooked dinner next door at the pub, so we never had to go anywhere else. What also makes this place ideal is that it looks like a cottage. It was very clean as well. Paddywagon did a great job with this place and couldn't have a better people working there. So this is the place to stay in Anascaul!

My husband surprised me and booked us in here for a romantic stay in this quiet haven in Anascaul. The B and B is a fabulous looking building, made to look like the traditional cottage of days gone by. The village it is situated in, is perfectly quiet and country like, with great pubs and you can blend in with the locals. The rooms are perfect, beautiful , with clean white linen, and wood floors to die for! The bathroom was spotless also. I loved the fact that in the mornings when you woke up you could hear the sheep in the nearby fields. It was very beautiful in the surrounding areas. If I could return tomorrow , I would. The hearty breakfast was a bonus! The South Pole pub is nearby , just down the road and has fabulous history inside. This village is so quaint , and Inspiration Lodge is truly amazing!!
