What wonderful hosts in a beautiful location. They made sure we had all the support we needed on our first trip to Ireland. The rooms had everything we needed. Couldn't have been more pleased.

Ann offered us a very warm welcome over tea, biscuits and an infinity of tips about the area - there is lots to see, drive to and hike. Gorgeous part of Ireland and they are perfectly located. Dingle is a very short drive away and it's a lovely spot with great restaurants and pubs. The room was clean and comfy, bathroom a little tight but perfectly usable. We could see the ocean from it too! Thank you for a fabulous stay.

Ann and Derry are wonderful hosts, warm and caring. The view from their home was so peaceful and it was only a short drive from Dingle. The room was comfortable and clean. This was a great stop for 2 nights at the beginning of our trip. Thank you both so much.

4 of us stayed 2 nights. Wonderful place. Just a few minutes drive from Dingle Harbor in a quiet rural setting. View of ocean from our room. Derry was former high ranking agricultural official in Ireland and had lots of interesting stories of people he met. Ann's delicious French toast was a delightful break from full Irish breakfast. Great fresh fish dinner at Anchor Down. Don't miss the Sciurd Archeology tour and the trip around Slea Head.

Ann welcomed me Into her and Derry’s home and made me feel more than welcome. Enjoyed a cup of tea and some conversation and Ann then drove me into town so I could sightsee and enjoy all they had to offer. I loved their home and will visit again when I return.
