Pax is well worth the splurge! From the warm greeting we received upon arrival to the excellent service and care throughout our stay, Pax Guesthouse is just amazing. John is an excellent host and cook! Very helpful and kind. The view from our room (the Cedar Room) was breathtaking. We enjoyed 180 degree views to the lush, green hills dotted... More

Pax House is absolutely amazing. Situated on a hill just outside Dingle, the views are fantastic and the comforts incredible. John, the proprietor and chef, goes out of his way to make sure all guests have the best possible stay. He keeps folders with information on driving trips in the area as well as points of interest in the surrounding... More

This is an amazing guest house. The owner john O Farrell and all the staff are so friendly and can't do enough for all guests. The property in itself is fabulous and everything is taken care of, nothing is too much trouble. This was our 2nd visit to Pax. They remembered us and treat everyone like friends. I would go...

John O'Farrell could not be more pleasant and sincere. He exudes warmth and caring. He loves animals and has a great dog and a great cat. The chickens outside are pretty nice, too. His culinary skills are as keen as his personality is warm, and you can expect your eggs, or waffles, or traditional Irish breakfast to be delicious. His... More

My husband and I only stayed one night but wish we could have stayed longer! The location was ideal, close to town but not too close... The breakfast was the best we have had in Ireland so far. There is also a resident dog and cat that kept us in good, entertaining company. John recommended we do the Dingle loop... More

The Pax House is not just a place to stay...it's an experience. They treat you like royalty and family at the same time from the moment you arrive. I have never had such a warm, welcoming experience at any place I have ever stayed. The rooms are sensational with comfy beds, wonderful views (in the sea view rooms), high quality... More

Pax House is run by John, an energetic and attentive host. The place is quiet, beautiful, clean, well-kept. John is also a great tour guide and gives good insight on what to do and skip in the area. The breakfast is marvelous, fresh scones, fruit, and a hot menu to choose from. Not one complaint, everything was simply superb, and... More

Beautiful location overlooking the bay! Upon arrival, Marge made us feel right at home. We had planned to take a nap but once we saw the view from the sitting room, we decided to have tea instead and visit with other guests who were very nice and friendly. Our room was wonderful and spotless and we found out later, the... More

We can't say enough good things about our host, John & Pax Guest House--an exquisite, well positioned, and pristine home filled with warmth, light, and every modern convenience you could want or need for your stay. From John, our warm host who recommended an outfitter to provide a lovely tour of Dingle for us, to Margaret who welcomed us, to... More

Okay, you're going to think I'm exaggerating in this review, but I'm not. This is probably the best B&B we've ever been to ... and we travel A LOT! We were in Dingle a few weeks ago and spent 2 nights at Pax Guest House. My brother and sister in law did as well, so we had 2 of the... More
