We really enjoyed our stay with our very friendly, hospitable hosts! Lovely view from our bedroom and the room was cosy and welcoming. We enjoyed an excellent breakfast before Ann and Derry waved us off on the next stage of our trip!

Thank you very much and delighted you both had a lovely time with us and enjoyed Dingle and your trip to Ireland. We have just finished for this season and find the house so quite and lonely without Guests. We had some friends yesterday from New Hampshire who first came to Ireland 40 years ago Ken is now 91 years and he told us ye hope to come and see us next year. Great Spirit. Ann and Derry

It was a wonderful stay during our Ireland tour. The owners are very friendly. We were welcomed with biscuits and tea. We got a lot of information about the region and what you can see. (More than we could see in the short time) The rooms were very clean and tidy. The bathroom with shower was a little too small for me - or I am too big.... . Thank you very much for everything Andreas and Dorothee

One of my and Mia's most cherished stops. We stayed one night of our honeymoon with Ann and Derry. Upon our arrival, Ann offered us some tea and we took it in the parlor while having a delightful conversation with her. Mia fell in love with Ann's stories. The room was wonderful and I can't say enough about the full Irish breakfast we had in the morning. Derry served breakfast and we had a chance to chat with him as well. We just can't say enough about this wonderful couple.

We had a lovely 2 night stay at Ar-Nar-Mara. Ann and Derry were very hospitable. They were helpful with sight seeing suggestions as well as bringing us to town one evening so we didn’t need to get a taxi back and forth so we could enjoy the Dingle pubs. Our room was comfortable with a beautiful view and an Irish breakfast was cooked to order. We were so fortunate to have sunny weather on our vacation but I can very much understand why you hear you don’t go to Ireland for the weather, it’s the Irish people you will love. Our B&B hosts made our holiday so memorable. Dingle and the peninsula were our favorite for scenery and the vibe. We would definitely visit again!
