After meeting a couple on a bus in Dublin, it was suggested we travel to Dingle so we cut our time short in Galway which was our next destination after Dublin and headed to Dingle. When we arrived, we had no place to stay and we don't care to stay directly in the center of things so we walked down... More

I was so sad to leave this wonderful, magical place. We stayed 3 nights and loved every minute of it. The location is perfect for driving out to The Great Blasket Island center and seeing many stunning views along the way. Joe & Juli and their wonderful family are so caring, kind and helpful. The room we had, had a... More

We were lucky to find this place on Trip advisor. Julie, Joe & family have a great set up. Relaxed, easy going atmosphere, lovely rooms with fantastic views, spotlessly clean too and the breakfast is really wholesome and tasty. It's location is perfect, parking on site. You couldn't ask for better.

It was such a welcoming respite to stay here after a couple of difficult days for our little family. Julie and Joe (and son!) were down-to-earth and friendly and went the extra mile by loaning us their car seat (and sharing toys!) and arranging travel for us to the airport. The room was lovely, spacious and clean. Attention to detail!... More

The location of this B&B could not be better! The view from our room was breathtaking and it was only a short walk into the Dingle downtown. Our room was comfy and clean and had a great shower. Joe and Julie were a treat to talk with and from whom we learned lots about the nearby area and what not... More

We had been on the road all day and needed a place to stay. We randomly chose this place and found a gem!!! Joe and Julie were so thoughtful and made us feel right at home. Julie was baking and was kind enough to share. We loved them so much we changed our plans and stayed 2 nights. They had... More

I was immediately at home here with Joe and Julie. My friend and I spent a wonderful few days in Dingle, a charming bay town with intriguing history and welcoming people. This B&B is well managed, clean, and perfectly stocked. Julie whips up a spectacular breakfast and was kind enough to pack the leftovers for our day's excursions. Our rooms... More

This place should be called Best Breakfast Ever. 'Cause that's what I had here. It ranks in the top 5 meals I've ever eaten. I wish I could have access to Juli's cooking for the rest of my life. Alas, Joe called dibs first. Joe and Juli are quick-witted, funny people. They both have straight, brown hair. Wondering aloud where... More

We stayed at Dingle's First Cottage by the Sea for one night at the beginning of September, but I wish we had stayed longer! From the moment we arrived, Julie was very helpful. She gave us maps, told us the best hiking trails to take, and even when we came back soaked from the rain, she layed our clothes and... More
