Ann and Derry welcomed us into their home with the offer of a cup of tea. Great location, just a short drive to the center of Dingle. They helped us with directions, dinner suggestions and offered to call and set up a B&B for us later in our trip. Our room was clean and comfy. Great views from our window- the bay and,some curious sheep! Delicious breakfast!

Ann and Derry are lovely and courteous hosts. They offered a warm welcome with tea and coffee. We had a very nice stay and got to know a nice couple who was also a guest.

Ann and Derry were wonderful hosts. I enjoyed tea in the afternoon and breakfast was superb. My family and I had a great two days on the peninsula and highly recommend Ard-Na-Mara.

We had an amazing stay at Ard-Na-Mara! Ann gave us a lift into town and recommended pubs for dinner and trad music, as well as how to get a taxi back to the B&B. The smoked salmon and egg breakfast was delicious and I look forward to visiting this wonderful B&B again someday. We had a beautiful view of the Atlantic/Ventry Harbor from our bedroom window.

Ann and Derry are wonderfully hospitable! We were leaving the morning Ophelia hit and Ann phoned ahead to our next B&B to let them know we would be arriving early and asked them to phone when we arrived safely. We were offered tea on arrival and a wonderful breakfast in the morning. Rooms are clean and comfortable. We would definitely stay with them again.
