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

Great B&B in the heart if Dingle. Convenient to all shops, dining and the harbor. The unit was well stocked with just about all you need for breakfast. We had a lovely patio and the weather was nice enough to take advantage of it. Our bedroom was up a spiral staircase and the only drawback, if you're tall is that... More

This location is very convenient, in the heart of Dingle. We chose it based on the great reviews. The owners are lovely, and live below the 3bedroom suite we booked. We appreciated their help in directions and advice and they stocked the unit with great home baked breakfast breads and fruits. The downsides were a problem though. The beds are... More

Great location right in the centre of dingle beside the Phoenix cinema , I stayed in a self contained mini apartment which was lovely . My own garden attached which would be nice in summer. The host left brown scones and coffee and there is a full self catering kitchen so no rush to get up for breakfast & option... More

We chose The Captain's House for our first stop walking the Dingle Peninsula and we were not disappointed--for central location, flexibility, comfort, it is a wonderful, welcoming place. You become part of the family, if you like, and we did--Jim was always friendly and helpful, his lively twins, Lyla and Lara, and their jolly, rolly-polly, shaggy dog Bróg. Jim stocked... More

A two day booking May 20 - 22 (2014) was extended to three due to a thoughtful and well balanced service. We celebrated a birtday and a couple of extras was performed by Mary and Jim to our absolute delight. Captains House is ideally located for getting to the restaurants and pubs without any effort. Professional service and friendliness made... More
