One of seemingly hundreds of B&B's in Dingle! We believe this should be at or near the top of any short list, however. Breda is a wonderful host. The property is well maintained with nicely appointed rooms, a quiet lounge at the front, and a very nice breakfast area. Not mentioned in the information is a beautiful and friendly dog... More

We spent 1 night at the Boland B & B on Goat St in Dingle and it was a great place to stay! Breda was a great host and very helpful. We will stay there again on the next trip, maybe a couple of nights!

I hate to say it, but this was the worst of the 4 Bed and Breakfasts we stayed at while in Ireland. As the the title states, the main issue was the cleanliness/upkeep of the property. The common areas were clean enough, and even the room was OK for the most part (though the bed was the most uncomfortable out... More

We stayed here for one night in September and found the room adequate. Our room had 2 double beds and 1 twin bed, which was nice so we could spread out a bit. However, the beds were quite hard and not comfortable. We found dirty towels hanging on the back of the bathroom door, and a lamp lightbulb was burnt... More

Pros: Nice view of harbor from our room, short walk to town and restaurants (but up a hill). Plenty of on street parking. Mary the breakfast helper was very nice and helpful. Cons: WIFI didn't work (needs repeaters to boost signal through the building), broken bath fixtures and furniture, locks on bedroom door and front door hard to operate. Impersonal... More

Have stayed here a few times and each time I have had an amazing time. It is a very clean place in a great location with brilliant views of Dingle bay, close to various restaurants and bars. The breakfast is also delicious with plenty of choice. The family are lovely and would do anything to help. I'll definitely be back... More

the only parking was on the street if it was available...the room had no bath....and no air conditioning, so we had to leave the windows open...then all we had was noise from the street below....the website stated that the price was €80 for a double room....yet we were charged €100....we would not recommend this B&B at all...as it was overpriced...

Shame that such a well sited B&B should be so badly in need of major maintenance and cleaning. I wouldn't revisit! We nearly got locked in our room due to a faulty lock! Lack of proper fitting windows which was a worry as we were at the street level. Noisy from other occupants arriving late from an evening in the... More

Sheets had hair on them, room furniture was outdated, bathroom has mould all throughout it, towels were thin and had stains all over them. Our room was quite Hot even though outside it was only 18 degrees, and when we left windows open, it was extremely loud all night/morning outside. So didn't get any sleep. Wifi didn't work in room,... More
