Loved our stay here! Ann and Derry are the sweetest, most wonderful people and are incredible hosts. They warmly welcomed us with tea and provided many fabulous recommendations for dinner in Dingle. The room was clean and comfortable, and breakfast in the morning was delicious! We would love to stay again and would recommend this B&B to everyone!

Ann and Derry are what make this lodging so special, but it has much more going for it. It is in a convenient location, close to Dingle, and if you don’t want to drive there is a good taxi service available. It is peaceful, quiet, in a lovely setting, and on the way to the drive around the Dingle Peninsula. The breakfast is quite delicious and generous as well. Ann makes every effort to invite guests into a community of sorts, and for me as a single traveler, that was invaluable. The place is spotlessly clean and perfectly comfortable. I highly recommend this lodging, especially if you are someone who is looking to make connections to the friendly and helpful people of Ireland.

We already stayed with Ann and Derry the second time and it was wonderful. They are so friendly and warm hearted that we totally felt home, Ann felt like a Mam to us. They recommended the best fish Restaurant in town and we went for dinner 4 days in a row. The house is located in a nice and quiet area but Dingle is not too far away. The rooms are comfortable and very cosy. The breakfast was terrific and we couldn´t wait to be back fot the great salmon. Ann and Derry are lovely people and we will come back next year. Thank you so much for the great time we had with you!!!
