Reviewed 18 June 2014

I stayed here the night of June 11, 2014. What a treat! Excellent rooms and caring hosts - the maps/routes that Michael drew for me certainly provided some of my week's highlights. I will be telling everyone I know to stay here if they have the opportunity.

We stayed with Barbra and Michael for three nights. What a treat. On our arrival Barbra greeted us at the front door with an Irish welcome, showed us to our room and let us get sorted out. She spent at least 20 minutes giving us a run down of all the local pubs, restaurants, shops and attractions in town. Michael also made helpful recommendations for our next leg of the trip to Aran Islands.

We will miss the lovely breakfasts which included tea, coffee, fresh fruit, home baked soda bread and your choice of cooked Irish breakfasts. We opted for scrambled eggs and smoked salmon and let me say it was splendid.

We highly recommend staying with Michael and Barbara at Milestone House.

Room Tip: Walk to town as it is a shot walk.

This wonderful B&B truly made our stay in Dingle. Barbara and Michael are caring, generous hosts who made us feel at home with their superior service. Each morning, we were met with fresh juices, fruit salads, tasty jams and delicious homemade bread. They also served up delightful hot meals from the kitchen, including a full Irish breakfast, and made sure we got exactly what we wanted. Barbara even helped us make our plans for the day. She set us up with a beautiful, 3 hour tour of the peninsula in the morning and reserved two spots for us on a fishing charter in the afternoon. She was incredibly helpful and we felt so grateful not to have to worry about the planning. We highly recommend this B&B, not only for the clean and spacious rooms, but because of our hosts who put their hearts in making our stay special!

The Milestone House sits amongst fields, sheep, and beautiful views of the Dingle countryside. I imagine the views of Dingle Harbor are most in demand, we actually enjoyed being in the back of the house with views of the countryside.

It's about a mile walk into town, which was pleasant in late May. Barbara was a wealth of information, providing excellent suggestions for sightseeing, eating, and nightlife. The breakfasts were phenomenal. I especially enjoyed the homemade soda bread (wow!) and the smoked salmon scrambled eggs.

The rooms were spacious and impeccably clean. The bathrooms are functional, but very small. We generally slept very well. The area is quiet, but my one complaint is that the walls are thin—one of our fellow guests clearly enjoyed too much Guinness or whiskey one night. This is something to consider if you're a light sleeper, but typical of the B&Bs we stayed in around Ireland. For all you technophiles, the Milestone House offers free wifi (surprisingly, this is rare in hotels).

We enjoyed visit to Dingle and hope to return. I would definitely recommend the Milestone House.

For travelers driving themselves to Dingle, note that it may take you nearly twice as the Google driving directions estimate once you leave the M-prefixed highways.

Room Tip: We enjoyed staying in the back of the house, with views of the countryside.

We stayed here for 2 nights - Barbara and Michael were so friendly, kind and full of advice on what to see and where to go. They even gave us a lift into the town one of the evenings! The beds were so comfortable and it was the best full Irish breakfast I ever had. Michaels soda bread is amazing! Overall we had an amazing stay and would recommend this B&B to anyone!

Just home from a wonderful stay at Milestone House, which was made more special because of all the extras that Barbara and Michael include to make your visit seem like you are visiting with friends. From their friendly greeting to their interest in where you are heading next, you know you made the right decision in choosing Milestone House; and you wish you were staying longer! Michael's breakfasts can not be compared to any other B&B I have ever stayed at. There is truly something wonderful for everyone and his homemade bread is absolutely delicious! Their knowledge of Dingle is amazing and their suggestions of where to go, marked on Michael's hand drawn map, take you to spots you would otherwise never know about. Dingle, in my opinion, is the most beautiful place to visit in Ireland and Milestone House is definitely the best place to stay.
