This is one of the nicest B&B's I've stayed in. The rooms are really amazing and they serve an excellent breakfast. I would really recommend this place to couples and I'm looking forward to staying there again.

Wonderful and luxurious b&b. Warm welcome, shown to a spacious twin with its own patio. We were given a wide range of dinner options all within easy distance of town. Best bathroom I have had in a b&b, just like a 5 star hotel. Excellent breakfast - just make sure to ask for the porridge. Can't wait to go back.

This may be an unfair review but, long story short...we were to stay at Bambury's but there had been a booking error so the owner of Bambury's made arrangements for a room at Emlagh. There was a price difference but the Bambury owner paid the difference. It was nice but very impersonal, nothing near the B&B experience we wanted or... More

Emlagh house is a beautiful country house with spacious well decorated rooms and lovely staff but 4 things let them down so 3 of 5 is a generous review. I notified them by email of my concerns and I was told the b and b was a high standard with great reviews. Not good enough. 1. €140 per night is... More

My friends and I stayed her for 2 nights a couple of weeks back and we were met with the most kind and helpful staff I've experienced to date. Since this is under the category of B&B's, I wasn't expecting anything too grand but I was amazed by the overall quality of the building, value and location. After travelling throughout... More

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.
