We stayed one night here recently during our visit to the Dingle peninsula. Room was very big with a sitting area and the bathroom was also large with all the amenities including a separate shower and big bathtub. There were very nice toiletries included as well as a hairdryer, iron and ironing board. No safe or fridge in the room... More

Fabulous house and location, but very sparsely furnished - made sense when I read that the house was sold and contents auctioned off in the last few months. Fair to say that the new owners are only settling in, but there are certainly a few teething problems. The service at breakfast was terrible, only one girl looking after 5-6 tables... More

Stayed Friday night and it was a fabulous experience. Beautiful spotless bedroom and breakfast was a real treat. Fantastic location just a few minutes walk to the hustle and bustle of Dingle town. The house is beautifully presented and the staff were lovely. Would highly recommend and can't wait for a return visit but for longer the next time.

Having stayed at many many places all over the world I would have to say that Emlagh House is one of my all time favorites. The rooms are sumptious, the staff incredible, the town of Dingle so beautiful....what more can any traveller ask for? Did I mention the breakfasts? No? Ah.... the scones,the scones.Fireplace? And....I saw the dolphin Fergie From... More

One of the nicest looking places we stayed in during our tour. One unexpected pleasure was discovering that for the first time in a week and half we had an elevator to help us with luggage rather than lifting multiple seriously-packed cases up 1 or 2 floors. We never actually looked for such a convenience and didn't NEED a Lift,... More

B&B's have never been a favorite but I would stay here again in a heart beat. I have been to a few and consequently not my first choice. This place however is enough to make me try more. The accommodations, service, friendliness of staff were all exceptional. I cannot say enough so I will stop here. Give them a try... More

Hospitality and attention abound. Accommodations are excellent. Service and staff are top notch. An excellent location just on the edge of town. A hot, hearty breakfast served in a lovely dining room overlooking the water, with lighter fare available. Plenty of comfortable seating in beautiful rooms for relaxing, reading or conversing. Overall, a wonderful experience.

We spent two nights here. The previous reviews are all accurate. Perfection in every way. Warm, inviting and decidedly elegant - not overly ostentatious. Breakfasts are whatever you wish them to be... owners cannot be of too much service....

During August 2013, my fiance' and I were married in Dingle and we decided to stay at the Emlaugh House and it was wonderful. The owners were so warm and inviting and did everything they could to make our stay comfortable and enjoyable. The breakfasts were delicious. The rooms were very well maintained and the bed was extremely comfortable. This... More
