I am very surprised by all the "excellent" reviews of this hotel. While it's not terrible, it's very unremarkable. The receptionist had to be tracked down each time we needed assistance. The room, while large, was musty smelling and had extremely outdated furniture - we actually pitied this poor little hotel because it looked like they were trying to make it successful but it was just a little sad. It felt like an old college dorm. The small amenities - coffee/tea in the room, toiletries, etc were so substandard they would have been better off without them. The same goes for the breakfast. One look at the less-than-clean dining room, the flies buzzing around, and the total absence of other guests in the height of tourist season, and we decided to have just the cold breakfast and leave asap. There is not much to see or do in Ballyferriter - we would have been better off staying in Dingle on our way around the peninsula.
