Arrived in lovely Dingle around 6pm in the summer without a booking and decided to take our chances. We definitely had some Irish luck when we came across First Cottage and they had one room left! Joe and Julie were wonderful hosts, gave us tips on hikes, pubs and restaurants, and fed us extremely well. We got room 3 which... More

The best B&B i've ever seen. Julie & Joe are really thoughtful and pleasant. And i'll never forget the wonderful breakfast Julie prepared for us each morning. I'm really impatient to be there one more time!

We really enjoyed this little cosy b&b with great view to the ocean. We were really warmly welcomed and we got many really good tips to our west coast trip. The room was quite small but really nice and clean. We got supersize breakfast without asking :) Also the location was good and good restaurant were near. We would like... More

This is a beautiful small B&B right by the sea! The view is amazing, the hosts were so nice and friendly and full of stories and tips to see and do in Kerry. The room was really nice and clean, so I definitely recommend!

My husband and I spent two nights in this wonderful B&B. The family is lovely, Juli gave us LOADS of tips of where to go, what to see, where to eat, which pub has the best live music... The rooms were very comfortable, and the breakfast was simply amazing. We will come again!

...is what you will fell like when you stay with Joe & Juli at this great place! Be careful, though. Juli will feed you so well that you may gain some weight! The Irish breakfast is off the charts good and HUGE! Even the porridge was outstanding. It was great to spend each morning with their family while Juli &... More

Our last night in Ireland so we're looking back on 2 wks and while we have had great experiences all down the west coast, Julie's B&B was the standout. Great room with beautiful view over the bay, spotlessly clean and serviced, seals to spy each day, short stroll to town, Julie such a knowledgeable local and happy to share it... More

My wife and I somewhat stumbled onto this wonderful B&B after looking thru various options from hotels, B&B's, etc. When traveling, we prefer B&B experiences where its obvious that the innkeeper truly cares about making your stay the best it can be with them and the area. Juli and Joe truly enjoy getting to know you and wlling to engage... More

Julie and Joe run a truly excellent establishment. They are some of the nicest people you will ever meet, and when you stay here you feel like you are visiting relatives. They take you into their home, introduce you to their family and make you feel more welcome than you ever expected. They told us all about Dingle's history and... More

This place should be in the dictionary, illustrating a definition of a "perfect B&B". This charming place is located on the waterfront and ran by a family who really cares about making your stay in Dingle an excellent experience. There are the basics - rooms are clean, beautifully decorated and well thought-out. There are the bonuses - beautiful view from... More
