We arrived thoroughly road weary from a day long drive from Galway, to be warmly greeted by John. We were given tea and biscuits while we waited for our friends to get settled in their rooms. The first night, our room faced the street. It was warm, comfortable and quiet. Our second night was rewarded with a room at the... More

This review is long overdue, but not a week has passed since our October trip that my boyfriend and I have looked at each other and said, longingly, "I miss Pax House." In fact, we are scheming to somehow arrange a weekend solely to Dingle so that we can again enjoy John's warm hospitality and the fine, luxurious finishes of... More

Staying here was the highlight of our trip. I would come back to Ireland just to stay at this lovely hotel. John was amazing. He answered all my questions beforehand and gave easy to follow directions. When we arrived he personally greeted us, served us tea and biscuits then showed us to our room. After we were settled in he... More

John and the rest of the Pax house people are just the best. You can't ask for anything more. Everyone were kind, helpful and lovely. That takes me to... More

Upfront: This place is not overrated. Early last month I brought my sweetheart to Ireland for an 11-night vacation. Although my fourth visit and third time to Dingle, this was her first-ever look at the Emerald Isle. It was important to me that a good impression be made. That’s why I chose Dingle for our first three nights. On previous... More

This guesthouse will take your breath away from the moment you walk into its doors and your eyes take in the surrounding and stunning views of the Dingle peninsula . John the outstanding owner and caretaker of this beautiful guesthouse will greet you like you are family visiting for the first time. Rio, his equally as charming dog will also... More

Our stay at Pax was extraordinary in many ways. My wife and I spent two nights here in October with unusually good weather, though I would stay at Pax rain or shine. As much as I'd like to keep Pax my own little secret, I feel obliged to do my part in expressing my gratitude for the wonderful stay that... More

Pax Guest House is one of the few places that I could return to over and over and over again. My husband and i spent two nights there in late October in one of their "top of the house" rooms which includes a not-to-be beaten view of the Dingle Bay area and two comfy chairs and a set of binoculars...

Stayed here because our favorite place (The Emlaugh House) was closing for the season. What a lucky break. Starting with the owner, John O'Farrell. More like your personal concierge than the owner. Always asking if we needed help with recommendations, direction etc. Gave us a detailed binder of the Dingle Peninsula which was like having our own guide for our... More
