We stayed at Emlagh Lodge in late Sept, 2014 and had wonderful accommodations. Maggie is a friendly, helpful hostess, giving us plenty of useful local info on places to eat, visit, & where to find necessities.. Our room was very quiet, clean & comfortable, and had an incredible view of the bay. There was safe parking right outside the door... More

Maggie is warm & welcoming & wide open! We arrived later on the day than we'd expected, but we let her know ahead of time - between some rain, slower start & such. Maggie was gracious & got us settled & sorted. In a good few instances in the days in Dingle, Maggie helped us in in a pinch. The... More

It had taken us 11 years to go back to Ireland and a must was another stay at Emlagh Lodge. We were greeted like long lost friends and made so welcome by Maggie (and she'd even managed to get us a gig to entertain at the local day centre) – a superb host, always helpful and lovely breakfasts. We stayed... More

My husband and I stayed two nights at the beautiful Emlagh Lodge. Maggie keeps everything spotless. Our room was wonderful and breakfast was like eating at a 5 star restaurant. Maggie was so helpful in giving us information about the area. I had read all the reviews and brought a small flashlight so we were able to walk back from... More

I know what you did, as soon as the page for Emlagh Lodge loaded: you looked at the "terrible" reviews. Well. I did too. My boyfriend and I ended up going anyway, and it was the best decision ever. Listen, Maggie won't coddle you. She will treat you like an adult and will expect you to behave like an adult.... More

The Inn is a more modern looking structure and has modern amenities like an elevator. It is chock full of antiques. Very clean. A five minute or less walk to city centre. Very safe area. A made to order high quality breakfast with very spacious over sized rooms that are well appointed. Great find!

We had a lovely time during our recent stay at the Emlagh lodge. Maggie was friendly and helpful. The B&B is in an excellent location and is beautiful. We were in the "Bay View" room and the views were stunning. The room was large, comfortable and well-appointed. Maggie also had some great tips on how to better spend our time... More

I have stayed with Maggie several times in the past, so when my sister and niece wanted me to plan a trip to Ireland, Dingle was at the top of my list. I can't imagine visiting Ireland without a stay with Maggie. I love the location of the house, the wonderful smell of the sheets, the fabulous views from the... More

A beautiful location, great food, comfy sparkling clean rooms, incredible value, amazing Maggie. We enjoyed every moment of our 3 night stay at Maggie's Emlaugh Lodge. A short stroll along the harbor in to Dingle. Maggie recommended some fantastic restaurants and we enjoyed a Friday night concert per her suggestion. Maggie really made the stay fun and we felt very... More

Except that she wouldn't take a selfie with us, lol. Seriously beautiful place. Wouldn't stay anywhere else in Dingle but here. 5 minute walk from everything. Maggie had great choices for breakfast and the room and view could not be beat. Maggie was a wonderful hostess and we enjoyed just talking with her more than anyone else where we stayed.... More
