My wife and I stayed here in August of 2014. The room, public spaces, and breakfast were the best we have ever experienced. After 30 years of traveling that is saying something. The room was spotless. Bed comfy, and the bathroom was perfect. View out the front of Dingle Bay. Yes - it is a short walk to downtown, but that makes it quiet and restful after the "good craic" in the pubs. But the breakfast. Give me a break! Everything on the buffet was fresh and clearly homemade. Even the fruit was not from a can. And they had bread pudding which was great. And I don't like bread pudding! Theirs tasted like french toast. But the winner - hands down - was the porridge (oatmeal to us USers). Not only was it made with cream, but came topped with fresh berries, brown sugar, and a floating of Baileys Cream. I could have stayed there all day - never had anything this good. The hosts were wonderful and helpful as well. One surprise - for 14 euro we got an entire plastic bag of laundry done. This place was so good you need to experience it. Worth EVERY dime.
