Pax House is a home from home or at least it is the home you wish you had..Filled with interesting art and with it's own comical and loving pets (Molly and Rio) at Pax House the welcome never ends,as the cups of tea flow alongside the conversation and the sense of relaxation. The rooms are lovely, stylish and well finished,... More

There are truly not enough stars to give the Pax House, John, Margaret, Michelle, Rio, Molly and the rest of the team the recognition that they deserve! This establishment and these wonderful folks have set the bar as high as it can go. Believe EVERY praise that you read about this little peace of Heaven and then make your reservation...and... More

As soon as John opened the front door we felt like we were being welcomed home, he knew all our names, including the kids. As he showed the previous guests to their room he asked us to make ourselves at home on the most stunning terrace with the most beautiful views. He then treated us to the best coffee we... More

I can't say enough good things about this place. John, the owner is just great. He gave us a tour booklet with distances and descriptions of sites along the slag's head drive that was amazing. He also gave us a great recommendation for a local potter to visit on our drive. I always try to find art from the places... More

Our foursome stayed 2 night s and wished we had stayed longer. John and staff provide for every comfort and the view of the bay! The included breakfast was a gastrointestinal delight. I highly recommend the smoked salmon and eggs. Added bonus was meeting a delightful Irish family who were there for a wedding. They invited us to the afters,... More

The Pax Guest House is all it is rated to be and more!!! Driving up the hill from Dingle you approach the house and might think it doesn't look like much from the front, but wait until you get inside and see the views out the back....they are truly spectacular. The effervescent Margaret warmly welcomed us and brought us tea... More

My husband and I just stayed at the Pax House for two nights this past week. We were incredibly impressed with the condition of this place. It is very well decorated and kept nice and clean. We had a renovated room that overlooked the sea and it was spacious and I loved the modern renovations and large shower big enough... More

Honestly 5 stars are not enough to rate John O'Farrell and Pax House. He is an extraordinary host and Pax House is an extraordinary destination. John is engaging and witty and goes WAY ABOVE AND BEYOND to be sure his guests are taken care of. The location is perfect, just a 15 minute walk downhill into town. At night John... More

I cannot add anything to what has already been said. You will not regret a stay here. John is the ultimate professional and went beyond what we could have expected in the way of helpfulness without being overbearing. In a great position too - a very short drive or longer walk into Dingle - which was drowning in tourists.

It would be hard to find anything better than this. A beautiful house with lovely guest rooms and a guest lounge and veranda that overlooks the beautiful Dingle Bay. We were made to feel very welcome and were bowled over by the attention to detail and the lengths that John and his staff went to to ensure that we enjoyed... More
