I actually traveled in May of 2012 - I was very ill when traveling. I had booked a 2 night stay at the Pax house and was so violently ill - the owner of this establishment took care of me as if I was family, He took me to the Doctor - who was very good. This MD gave me... More

My husband and I stayed at the Pax House for three nights last September and had a wonderful experience. John, the owner, was more than accommodating and a first class host and his staff were so lovely and very helpful. The B&B was comfortable, the breakfast was amazing, the view was fabulous and the common area so well decorated we... More

We spent 3 nights at Pax House and really loved it. The best part was sitting and relaxing in the main living room and have the most fantastic view of the Dingle Harbor and town. I really enjoyed the walks into town and back. Be aware that the walk back is uphill - not difficult, but good to be aware... More

Every review is right on it. Pax House was welcoming, beautiful, clean, and in the most perfect part of Ireland. Breakfast was amazing and the owner a gem. It's been since October and I miss it daily. Especially his dog and cat. :) Thank you for such a wonderful memory. I can't wait to go back!

I will keep this simple, since every other review has already expressed what an amazing place this is. Dingle is definitely worth the journey and the Pax House is worth every dollar. We plan to stay a week or two in Dingle at the Pax House for our next visit to Ireland, instead of driving from place to place. Service... More

Pax House is my favorite place to stay--ever, anywhere, anytime, for any reason!!! September 2015 will be my fourth visit in four years. First, a word about the setting. The Dingle Peninsula was once named the "most beautiful place on earth" by National Geographic. Yes, it is. It's everything you ever imagined Ireland would be, multiplied by a thousand! The... More

Out of our entire trip to the Republic of Ireland this was the standout. John and his team were wonderful hosts, the guest house is spectacular and Dingle is one of the great hidden gems of this world. Comfortable rooms, breathtaking views of the harbor and surrounds and a fantastic vibe in the town (little more than a minute away... More

We had such an outstanding stay in Dingle thanks to John and the comforts of the Pax Guest House. From inquiring about reservations right until our departure, John was informative, welcoming, and contributed so greatly to our most enjoyable stay in Dingle. We arrived late afternoon on a beautiful, sunny day and ordered a nice bottle of wine to enjoy... More

My husband and I have just returned from a wonderful stay at this hotel. Beautiful and relaxing with very friendly and helpful staff. Small touches like fresh milk for tea and coffee and ice for our room just added to great experience . The food was lovely and very nicely presented. For a relaxing break away I would definitely recommended... More

John certainly knows how to make you feel special and loved. Everything from the yummy and over the top breakfasts... to the pets... to the special touring directions ....to the recommendations for the restaurants.... to the reflective vests.... to the teddys and night caps. Oh and don't forget the cat and dog. Felt like home. And so much room to... More
