Ann and Derry were perfect hosts. The location was great for exploring the peninsula. They had a hiking book (and many other Ireland Travel guides) that gave us directions to many of the major hikes. Breakfast was very good and very filling. Ann had afternoon tea with cookies for us, which was wonderful. We had a wonderful time and would highly recommend staying there.

Very hospitable couple. Made us feel right at home on our first night in Ireland. Also, very well informed. We heard an excellent folk concert that Ann and Derry recommended. Without them we would not have known about it. Also, wonderful suggestions for restaurants.

We had a very pleasant stay at Ard-Na-Mara. Our hostess was eager to please. The room was comfortable and breakfast was great. This was a great spot from which to tour the Dingle peninsula and the town itself.

Our hosts were helpful with arranging our next stay in Clare. Our room and the house were quiet and clean. Parking onsite and the short drive to Dingle made our stay easy. The room had only one outlet so a TV and kettle were not possible. We could charge our phones by unplugging the lamp. The location and view were wonderful.

We had a wonderful evening at Ard Na Mara. Close enough to Dingle to enjoy the town and a perfect place to stay to drive the coast. Most beautiful scenery of our trip. The breakfast was one of our best on the trip. Had a wonderful night's sleep. Ann and Derry are gracious hosts.
