“Tired but friendly”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 January 2014

I spent one night at this hotel with my partner. It's located about five minutes on foot from the harbour, and within minutes of all local shops, pubs and restaurants. Dingle is a very small place. The reception staff were helpful and breakfast had a good selection of food choices. My gripe is how tired the place looks. The bedrooms are filled with hospital style armchairs and old pine furniture. The room we had was big but I felt there was too much furniture in it. Don't pay too much for your room; the B&Bs in town looked fine.

Thank you for you review and comments regarding your stay here. I sorry you felt the decor to be tired but thank you for kind comments regarding our staff and Breakfast. The Hotel has just started an investment program in different parts of the Hotel including an upgrade of all our TV's the replacement of all our seating funiture, new carpets and painting. The Style of the Hotel is Old world charm but we do pride ourselves in maintaining the standards that our guests expect in relation to modern facilities. Again thank you for your comments and should you be in Dingle again I hope you would happy to stay with us in the future.

Loved the ambience at this hotel - fabulously friendly and helpful staff (especially at Reception), serves an excellent breakfast (brilliant porridge!) ... wouldn't hesitate to stay here next time we visit Dingle - hope to have more time then to explore the countryside and enjoy the local sessions!

We stayed here for just one night for a wedding. I highly recomend for short stays, beautiful and in the heart of town steps away from all the pubs, yet quiet. It also has parking. For longer stays, there are some self catering options that are better on the budget.

We celebrated our 30th wedding anniversary in Dingle & stayed in Benners Hotel for our special weekend. The staff were all so friendly and made our stay special. We received complementary Cava (our favourite tipple) when we arrived & no problem with getting a glass of wine & a pint of Guinnness when we returned from our night out. Great breakfast too. Location is perfect & close to great bars & places to eat. Our room was warm & cozy with four poster bed. Can't wait to go back there.

The hotel was gorgeous. It is continently located to all pubs and restaurants. The staff is super friendly. Had a great time with Padraig Oshea, best bar tender/ pub guide in Dingle! Will be back next year.

Back in the USofA after 5 wonderful days spent at Benner's,Dingle. The staff and management were EXTREMELY kind and helpful to our many needs with our group of 96. The accomodations and food service was SUPERB and above and beyond expectations. I am so grateful to the fine gentleman whom was able to procure an American flag on Monday, November 11 so we were able to SALUTE the many veterans we had among the group.Once again THANK YOU from a grateful IRISH AMERICAN.

Room Tip: The 400's rooms were a LONG climb for some of the elderly folk
