The staffing was weird, young guys I saw in black doing rooms one day, where in reception one nt in... More

I stayed on a Saturday night. When we arrived we were checked in by a nice girl and sent in the direction of our room. Rooms are very basic, had a slight musty smell but were clean and acceptable for the price of €89. The walls are so thin i could hear the person in the next room snoring at... More

Perhaps it could do with a few tweaks like the front door squeaks but the staff at reception and the bar are more than happy to bend over backwards to make your stay a good one value for money too breakfast was nice the salt cellars were damp only criticism

We stayed for 2 nights at the Smerwick Harbour and I have to say I can't complain given the great deal that we got for 2 nights b&b. The hotel is a short drive from Dingle and we found it easily. On arrival the staff were very friendly and made us very welcome introducing us to local attractions that we... More

It's bout 8 Kim's from... More

The Smerwick Harbour Hotel is in a scenic location and the views are spectacular. The staff were very helpful and very friendly - specifically Mark the Manager, he was very helpful in booking a table in Out of the Blue restaurant and also booking a taxi for us. The bar is small but perfectly formed and I must recommend Nollaig,... More

We stayed here with another couple last weekend. The price was good and the staff helpful and friendly. The hotel is badly in need of a complete overhaul. The foyer is dated and drab. The carpets in the hall and bedroom are also dated and worn. The TV did not work and the area around it was dusty. On the... More

My husband and I have just returned from a 2 night stay at the Smerick Harbour Hotel, and we are already planning a return trip. We were a bit apprehensive about what to expect, because of the exceptional value we got for 2 nights, but couldn't praise the warm welcome we received enough. The food was amazing, as was the...
