I stayed in the Avalon once for 1 night and it by far the dirtiest place I've ever stayed in. The pillow had mold on it, which is not just unsightly but dangerous. When I pulled back the bed sheets there was hair in the bed. The sheets were dirty and smelled terrible. The bin in the room had old... More

Not really clean, rooms small, showers quirky. Wifi rarely worked. Breakfast in a small room & food not very good. Is in a good location, but there are other accommodations close by that have to be better. Family run in other Irish local B&B's means good conversation & welcoming times. Not here.

This B&B was perfect for what we needed - great location, clean and the owner was very accommodating in making room for an extra person at last minute. The price was really good as well - would definitely recommend for a group of friend in Dingle for the weekend!

We stayed in this B&B and to this day we all still talk about how bad it was. Firstly the owner of the B&B has a strange manner. The rooms are not clean, the bed linen is old and crusty and the showers do not work properly. Even on of the coldest days the heating was not on. It is... More

I am the one recommended this place to Dieter (just gave him the old name) after staying about 15times in Dingle over course of the last 20 years, both in Winter and in Summer, from 3 days up to 3 months. Background: Dingle has always seen some sort of tourism due to the nearby Rose of Tralee, the Dingle races... More

Booked into Old Mill House together with my wife and had a lovely stay! Anyone expecting the professionalism of a Hilton - this is not the place. It is a lovely reminder of old sleepy Dingle with lots of Irish character to it, excellent location and and very warm-hearted hosts. I cannot understand people complaining about cold plates (not the... More

Firstly, we didn't get what we booked. We booked for 6 and only got 5. We were moved from the b&b to a house that they owned that was in a state. Nothing was prepared on our arrival so we saw her husband 'tidying'. He dressed the bed with sheets that you wouldn't give to a dog, didn't sweep the... More
