Ann and Derry were wonderful!! We would DEFINITELY stay here again. Their home is so peaceful and in a great location for exploring Dingle. Breakfast every morning was great and they provided wonderful dinner recommendations for us both nights - and even called to ensure we had a reservation! They went out of their way to ensure that we were comfortable and well taken care of.

Ann and Derry were my favorite hosts during my trip to Ireland! Their home is cozy and comfortable, and they are the kindest people. The food was delicious, and I really enjoyed my stay with them. When I travel back to Dingle I will absolutely stay with them again. Great location and a true Irish B&B experience!

Ard-Na-Mara was just outside of town and was perfect for our stay. Ann and Derry were friendly and accommodating with good information and advice about where to eat. Just wish we'd had more time there! You couldn't ask for a warmer welcome.
