My two sisters and brother and I arrived in Dingle with no reservations late in the afternoon. We parked the car and started walking, looking for accommodations. We came across First Cottage and they had vacancies. Julie was very friendly and welcoming. She showed us to rooms upstairs at 40 Euro per person. Very nice and comfortable en-suite rooms. Two...

We stayed two nights in August 2015 and had a lovely time. Our room was clean and comfortable, had its own bathroom, and a great view of the water. Warm and welcoming hosts with lots of local tips. Short walk to downtown.

We stayed three nights in this homely b&b. The owners are very welcoming and a great source of local information. They make suberb breakfasts (optional), with lots of great fresh fruit (if you want). Very good value!

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!

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
