Ann and Derry were some of the nicest people I met while in Ireland. They are very accommodating. Place was very clean. I would have loved to have stayed longer to see Dingle.

Thank you very much Rebecca and family. Delighted you are all back safely and that ye enjoyed your holiday in Ireland. Dingle has closed down now since your visit and all the tourists gone home. We hope it will be full with tourists in a few months again. Ann and Derry

I visited with Ann and Derry with my son and granddaughter. We were greeted with a tea and muffin treat upon arrival. They were so friendly it was like staying with family. They advised us about the best places to eat, shops to visit and the best scenic route to continue with our touring of Ireland. I was trying to trace my ancestors and they put us on the right track. Derry recognized my fathers last name and let us know where they were most likely from. We investigated further and found records as to my great grandfathers birth. It was a wonderful vacation and I will always be grateful that we spent time with Ann and Derry. By the way, Ann is an excellent cook and breakfast was delicious. I will be back and will definitely stay with them.

Thank you so much Rita for getting in touch and we are delighted you are all back home safely - and that you found the records of your great grand-father - and I hope Susie enjoyed meeting her friends in Galway. Did Mike get to stay at Adare Manor and play golf - It was beginning to get scary that time. All the tourists have left our lovely town and all gone home. Hopefully not for too long. Ann and Derry

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
