The location ideal -- about halfway between the town center and the harbor. For less than the cost of two rooms elsewhere, we had a two-story, three-bedroom apartment with kitchen and living room. Breakfast was fix-your-own, but eggs, cheese, yogurt, coffee, tea, juice, and baked goods were provided (and restocked every day). Each bedroom had its own tiny bathroom with... More

We stayed at the Captain's House for only 2 nights but wished we were there longer! Dingle is a wonderful town and The Captain's House made us feel so comfortable and welcome that we didn't want to leave. We were in the Rathlin suite which has 3 double bedrooms all en-suite and we are a family of 4 so the... More

We stayed 4 nights and loved it. Dingle is a wonderful spot and this is a very convenient place in Dingle. The washer/dryer was great to find. It also had a kitchenette and lots of good food was provided so you could eat right in your own room.

We loved our time at the Captain's House, which has been divided into three "apartments" instead of the traditional set-up. I believe we had the largest digs, with three bedrooms, a full kitchen (including laundry), and a living room. We were one week into our adventure, so running a couple loads of laundry was a godsend. We also loved cooking... More

Owners were lovely but not really sure what I thought of the accommodation which verged on a flat and was different. It was spotlessly clean and 'different'! We chose the place because it sounded good in the Rough Guide and were expecting 'breakfast in the conservatory'. Since the arrival of twins this was no longer available and we were not... More

This place is located in the heart of Dingle. A five minute walk to the wharf or downtown. Mary is very accommodating. Our room was a small apartment with a washer/dryer. This was much needed after several days in Ireland. Fresh fruit, eggs and pastries were available in our room. A nice feature for those of us who may imbibe... More

We reserved several months in advance, as we were a party of 8. We received e-mail confirmation of our reservation, but when we arrived, we were told our reservation had been cancelled the month before (without notifying us - &, obviously, they had our e-mail) since, they said, we hadn't e-mailed them again to "reconfirm". We were out on the... More

I booked Captain's House 6 months in advance through email. I booked 6 months ahead based on advice in the Rick Steve's book and because I was making plans for a group of 8. We arrived at Captain's House exactly as planned. When we arrived we learned that they had deleted our reservation because "it was made so far in... More

My wife and I stayed here for several nights on our 2 week tour of Ireland and I can't say enough nice things about it. Mary and Jim were so hospitable, stopping by every now and then to make sure everything was going OK. Mary always made sure we had all the things we needed. The room itself was so... More

This was a great mid way stop on our tour of Southern Ireland. This is more like an a apartment then a b&b with all of the facilities of home including a washer/dryer to catch up on laundry. You can self cater and cook here if you feel like a night in, or you are right in the middle of... More
