Rooms were clean and well taken care of. Very quiet and peaceful. Pretty views of the green hills. Delicious breakfast! This property is a bit outside of Dingle, which was fine for us as we had a car. Parking available on site. Delicious pub right down the road for dinner. Had the best fish and chips of my trip! Joan was very welcoming and helpful. She gave us directions and great places to stop at for a day drive around the Dingle peninsula.

Joan war sehr freundlich und hat uns am Abend Tee angeboten. Das Haus liegt sehr ruhig und hat eine schöne Aussicht aufs Meer. Das Frühstück war gut und abwechslungsreich. Es gibt allerdings in der Nähe kein Pub und keinen Shop. Da wir kein Auto dabei hatten, wollten wir nach einer langen Wanderung nicht noch einmal 2 km laufen. Joan hat aber angeboten, uns zu fahren. .

Absolutely lovely! Joan was simply awesome. She told us of the cove to take our dinner to and eat along the ocean. Amazing! She gave us good tips heading North - taking Conor Pass. She set us up with tea and cookies that evening. We decided to hang out in the sitting room and play cards. The sounds of the farm and dingle were serene. The sunrise was stunning - filling the sky with brilliance. Ruby the dog was so sweet. Breakfast was outstanding! It is well past the business of Dingle.

We truly loved our stay at Garvey’s. It’s a great place to stay and see the Dingle Penninsula. The hosts Joan and Tom were truly incredible. From the first moment we got there I felt like I was at the home of an aunt and uncle. Joan is so warm and welcoming. She took plenty of time with us and made sure to direct us to the right places in Dingle to celebrate our anniversary. We never saw Tom without a smile on his face and he was happy to demonstrate and explain his milking process in the morning. I would have liked more time there with such lovely people and exploring such a lovely peninsula.
