Blooming Wildflower Cottage
Ranked #54 of 75 Dingle B&B and Inns
Reviewed 1 January 2013

A really lovely place to stay. We were greeted by Marianne who gave us a map of town and made sure we were settled. We were made very welcome and throughly enjoyed our stay.

The location could not be better, right on the water and a very short walk to the middle of town (5 minutes max).

Breakfast was lovely...we sat overlooking the bay with another couple and enjoyed a wonderful home cooked meal.

Parking was not a problem, just up a side street across from the B&B.

Mariannce even waited and waved us off as we drown past when leaving for our next stop.

Thanks Marianne for a wonderful stay.

The location of the cottage is ideally located a short walk from the centre of town and backs onto a harbour side walkway. Although there was some confusion over our booking we were made welcome by Tommy and Marie-Anne, and stayed in the Captain's Cabin. The bedroom was very comfortable and the bathroom was spotless clean. Breakfast was very good and served upstairs in a room overlooking the bay, adjacent to the kitchen and serving area. My girlfriend sat in the cat's chair and was able to admire spectacular views of the changing light on Mount Eagle, and I could see over to the mouth of the harbour and beyond to the sea. Our host Marie-Anne served us breakfast and shared stories with us without imposing in our enjoyment of what is a sublime setting. Dingle is a lively town, amidst a beautiful landscape, which is thankfully not over developed with great bars, shops and restaurants.

My husband & I arrived in Dingle about halfway through our honeymoon in Ireland. We stayed in the Wildflower apartment for 2 nights & it was gorgeous! Tommy greeted us & provided a map of the local area & a few pub recommendations. I've read a few negative reviews about the bathroom location & distance from town & so I wanted to address these issues. The bathroom is across the hall from the apartment (which we knew ahead of time from reading reviews). This didn't bother us AT ALL & we definitely still felt it was extremely accessible & private. But I feel this is a preference thing - so if you know it would bother you, then stay somewhere else. Also, the walk to town is not only easy & convenient, it's really only about a 5-minute walk, in my opinion. So I'm not sure what the issue is there.

Personally, we loved staying here & it was so nice to have the adorable little kitchen for our use. We started by heading to the TruValue to stock up on groceries & then just made food & snacks, instead of eating out. It was more cost-effective. We also enjoyed their selection of movies - I know you think you won't want to watch tv while on vacation, but when we came home exhausted from a day of exploring Slea Head, it was lovely to chill out together & watch "The Quiet Man" in "our" apartment.

Marianne actually said the morning that we left, that she hoped we didn't feel they were rude by not checking in more, but that they knew we were on our honeymoon. I thought that was thoughtful & we did appreciate the privacy :). We will definitely stay w/Tommy & Marianne the next time we're in Dingle & absolutely adored them & the town.

Room Tip: I suggest staying in the apartment because it's just so charming & romantic :)

This was a lovely place to stay - the back of the Captain's Room opens out onto a patio which in turn backs onto the seawall and a great view over the harbour at Dingle. Marianne and Tommy made us feel very welcome and happily provided whatever we wanted at breakfast (in our case, porridge and then smoked salmon). It is so convenient to walk into town, where our hosts recommended some excellent activities and places to eat (check out the music events at St James Church, and for eating try John Benny's), and is also conveniently located for out-of-town drives, such as to Slea Head. It is easy to miss the sign - look for a series of connected houses on the water-side of the street, and a small sign on the building. I thoroughly recommend this B&B!

Room Tip: Depends if you want an apartment or just a room.

We stayed two nights at the Blooming Wildflower B and B on our honeymoon in July 2012. It was such a cute place and was very comfortable. The owners are very friendly and the breakfast was great. We stayed in the Captain's room and enjoyed the views out onto the bay. We would recommend a stay here to everyone!

Blooming Wildflower Cottage is worth the trip! How many places can you open your door right onto the water and the mountain views? We had the privilege to stay in the Suite by the Sea, which is the room to remember. It is equipped with everything you need and the sun porch was spectacular... better than the pictures. I enjoyed reading some of the books in the room in the afternoon light with the door open, welcoming the sounds of the the breeze and the waves just outside. We also enjoyed watching films from the movie library in the very comfy bed. And of course, breakfast was delicious, made to our request each morning by our warm and friendly hosts. They were very thoughtful with everything and made our trip in Dingle extra special.

Room Tip: Worth the splurge on the suite... it's really beautiful and special.

Upon arrival at this gem, we discovered we had been upgraded to the apartment. The room was precious: comfy bed, nicely outfitted kitchen, spacious, lovely sunroom to watch sunset, flower filled patio, beautiful view. They have a collection of Ireland themed/filmed movies to watch if you have any down time. Breakfast was A++...both the food and the company of Marianne were something special. Tommy and Marianne were super welcoming and sweet. Tommy's family has owned the house for over 100 years, so cool. When Marianne talks about Dingle and area she looks so happy and I can see why, it is wonderful! Dingle is enchanting, as is this B&B. PERFECT stay. I hope to return to my Ireland "home" again and again.

Room Tip: spend the extra to stay in the apartment, it is worth it
