Reviewed 9 July 2014 via mobile

Were greeted with tea and cookies out on the front porch. Very hospitable and friendly. They had lots of great tips about the local area that turned out to be fantastic. Clean rooms. Awesome view. Great location. Great breakfast. Will come back.

This is the most comfortable, clean, welcoming home you could find anywhere. What delicious breakfast!

Our room was comfortable. The bed was very good. Every little detail was tended to as well.

Location is a couple of KM from the town center which we found easily and enjoyed the country atmosphere. You can see the sea from the front bedroom windows. It's lovely.

We absolutely loved our stay and these hosts. Couldn't be better. Highly recommended.

Room Tip: Just ask Ann and Derry. They will do all to do the best for you.

Nice place and very friendly hosts. The decor is a little dated, as at least one other reviewer commented, but it was clean and well maintained. They also provided suggestions for dinner and music that night.
The location is definitely outside Dingle and you'll have to drive to town. However, they are located off Slea Head Drive, which we definitely recommend doing. Some of the best scenery we saw in Ireland.
There many places called Ard na Mara, including some rentals in or near Dingle, so double check which one you're looking at when searching/booking. The GPS at first took us to a neighborhood in Dingle based on name alone, before we put in more specific coordinates.

This was a nice place to stay. Our room was comfortable, but the bathroom and shower are very small. The decor is a bit dated, but that was fine by us. We were able to get wifi in our room (3), but all rooms may not. Ann was a wonderful hostess. Our breakfast in the morning was the best we had our whole trip. TIP- They only take cash so make sure you already have some, although Ann told me there is an ATM nearby.

The owners were warm and friendly. The room was lovely and cozy and the view was magnificent!. The welcome cup of tea was a delight!. The owners were friendly and very helpful with suggestions for local attractions to see. I'd recommend this B&B to Dingle visitors

We stayed at the Ard Na Mara B&B for one night before the Dingle half-marathon. We stayed in a two twin room. The owners of this B&B are by far the highlight. They were helpful and friendly, even sitting to chat with us for a bit after we checked in and share information about the area. The area itself is beautiful and about a five minute drive from Dingle. It's peaceful and restful. The bathroom was the only downside of this stay, as it is little bigger than a standard sized closet. Despite that, I would gladly stay here again. By far the most welcoming of the B&Bs we stayed at.
