“My Favorite B&B Experience”
Reviewed 22 May 2011

This was a very comfortable B&B with a beautiful view of the water from the guest lounge, and a lovely scenic view of the landscape out of the bedroom window (also the charming chicken coop!). Denise gave us a warm welcome and had maps available for sightseeing on the penisula. The breakfast the next morning was the best we had on our trip - fresh eggs and warm scones - delicious. I would recommend this B&B to anyone traveling to Dingle.

We had a great time in Dingle - Denice and the Dunlavin House were a large part of it. Great service, breakfast, and hospitality. Beautiful view of Dingle harbor.

Directions on web site say follow R558 - it is R559, the road that goes through town and across the bridge. Easy to find. Great starting place for trip around the Dingle Peninsula. Also, Trip Advisor pin is not in correct location.

If you are looking for a quiet, comfortable, friendly location - Dunlavin House is it!
There is also a small pitch and put golf course almost across the street. Visit the Court Pub for a pint or two.

Dunlavin House is a beautiful home with a nice view. The rooms are spacious and clean. My partner and I had a difference opinion about this place regarding hospitality. We both thought it was more like a hotel experience than a B&B experience. He liked that, I did not. The host was polite and courteous, but did not chat it up with us. Breakfast was fair. In our room there were two twins pushed together for our double and we each ended up sleeping on a twin (the gap in the middle made cuddling difficult).

Another reviewer wrote about the bridge. Fine to cross by day, but if going into town at night, perhaps driving is a better option.

We listened to some good music at the Courthouse. We did not have any dining experiences that are memorable and we stayed in Dingle two nights.

My wife and I stayed here for 2 nights this past week. Denise, our host, was most excellent. We got to meet her new kittens and the friends we were traveling with helped her feed the chickens out back. Denise was truly a great host. She noticed we were having a little Irish whiskey in the guest lounge one evening and brought in some ice. The breakfast was awesome, inlcuding fresh scones one morning and we chatted a lot with Denise. The rooms were larger than normal and very nice, with a very good shower. While the B & B is a little out of town, the view from our window of the Dingle Harbor was fabulous. It's a great location to start your tour of the Dingle Penisula. I strongly recommend.

Although GoogleMaps had us searching longer than we should have, when we finally found Dunlavin House, we could not have felt more welcomed. Of all the proprietors we met on our week-long travels, she was the nicest...consistently upbeat, smiling, and considerate of our needs. The breakfast was very tasty and here we fell in love with Kerry Gold butter! Although the weather outside was rainy and cold, the warmth inside was quite palpable. I wish Dunlavin House all the best!

It's a very nice B&B. The owner lady is very nice and kind, the breakfasts she makes were very good ! 15 min walk to the center city. Be careful, to reach the city you have to cross a 50 meter bridge without light & walkway, better run at night.
