We had a lovely 2 night stay at Ar-Nar-Mara. Ann and Derry were very hospitable. They were helpful with sight seeing suggestions as well as bringing us to town one evening so we didn’t need to get a taxi back and forth so we could enjoy the Dingle pubs. Our room was comfortable with a beautiful view and an Irish breakfast was cooked to order. We were so fortunate to have sunny weather on our vacation but I can very much understand why you hear you don’t go to Ireland for the weather, it’s the Irish people you will love. Our B&B hosts made our holiday so memorable. Dingle and the peninsula were our favorite for scenery and the vibe. We would definitely visit again!

We loved our stay with Ann and Derry the night before the Dingle Marathon. They were very welcoming, the room was very comfortable, the breakfast was great and the other guests were fun. I'd thoroughly recommend it and if I get back to the area again, I'd stay here

Cher & I enjoyed our one night stay at Ard Na Mara. Ann and Derry were wonderful hosts. Further, we enjoyed chatting with their grandkids. Our room provided a nice view of Ventry Bay area and the sea breeze was invigorating. Our breakfast was tasty and provided us a good start toward our long drive ahead. Ventry is a cute little town nearby. Dingle was perhaps the most colorful & vibrant town nearby. Fun place/fun time. Thanks Ann & Derry !

We had a great one night stay at Ard Na Mara. Anne and Derry were very welcoming and Derry even gave us a lift to town. The room was spotless and the breakfast was delicious. Loved the location looking out at the Ventry harbor from our window. Highly recommend.
