Ann and Derry were great hosts during our two-night stay in Dingle, going out of their way to make sure we had reliable transportation to town and reservations for excellent evening meals. Ann greeted us with tea and her family's favorite biscuits -- and a great smile! We enjoyed chatting with Derry when he served us the delicious full Irish breakfasts that Ann prepared! Plan to stay with this delightful couple at Ard-Na-Mara when you are in Dingle!

We adored everything about our 2 night stay here in early August 2018! Derry & Ann are 2 of the sweetest, friendliest, nicest people we encountered during our time in Ireland…how lucky we felt to be hosted by them for 2 days! They immediately made us feel right at home and were eager to provide us with some great tips on where to eat, where to souvenir shop, and where to park! Our room for 3 was charming, comfortable, clean, and had a nice view overlooking the yard where we could occasionally hear the mooing of nearby cows! Ann & Derry had the room adjacent to ours available and insisted that we use that 1 as well for our luggage so we would have additional space in the room we slept in…so thoughtful to offer and above & beyond! The grounds of the house were lovely with many beautifully blooming flowers for us to admire. We had several breakfast options to choose from and all that we tried were very good! The location is a great base for exploring the entire Dingle Peninsula and is only minutes from the cute shops/restaurants of Dingle. We would absolutely recommend this B&B & would not hesitate to stay here again should we be fortunate enough to be back in this corner of the world!

Our first B and B experience in Ireland and it was wonderful. The hosts were gracious, friendly and provided loads of information on what to see and where to eat. The room was comfortable and had a nice view, including a palm tree in the front yard. What a surprise! Had a lovely but very wet and windy time on the Wild Atlantic Way. Would definitely recommend Ann and Derry’s home.
