One of the best options if you're in Dingle Peninsula. The room was fantastic, sleep quality excellent, wide and comfy bed, ample toilet, nice breakfast... There are some buts: - there's little to do in Annascaul in terms of dinner, bars, pubs and so on, meaning you have to head to Dingle Town (15 minutes away by car), which is... More

Inspiration Lodge is truly the nicest B & B that I have stayed in in Ireland. From the outside, I was charmed by its thatched roof and the simplicity of its design. Inside, I was immediately struck by its elegance: gleaming white porcelain tiles, wide corridor and light pine furnishings. My room had a big window that overlooked the mountains... More

We were here for the 2nd time and again we had a wonderful time. Nice, clean and confortable rooms and bed. In the morning a delicious breakfast was served. The only negative part about our stay was the pub which belongs to the lodge. We (12 people) had a private hire which we booked a few months ago. By the... More

The lodge itself is clean more like a hospital. Staff was friendly. The breakfast was good. Noise is a problem as the sound tends to echo. So if you tired getting a peaceful sleep can be a bit of a challenge.

This b and b is excellent in every way, we loved the Kerry region when we visited it so decided to stay here and found Kerry to be very inspirational indeed! This b and b was perfect as we had already visited Dingle, but wanted to stay here as it was quieter. The b and b itself is very attractive,... More

My husband and I stayed here and had a wonderful time. This bed and breakfast is new and modern , yet stylish and traditional - all rolled into one. The house itself is a fine establishment with its yellow exterior and beautiful looking well kept thatched roof. Its a joy to see tradition being kept alive in the beautiful village... More

After recently discovering the beauty of Kerry and of course Dingle, I came across this wonderful lodge, not too far from where I was visiting. It is in the traditional village of Anascaul. As I writer, I found it very peaceful to rest my head here and to think. I stayed here for a few days and mixed with the... More

We stayed here as part of our Paddywagon tour. I had expected to stay down the block at the Ardrinane, but this lodge is a fairly new B and B owned I believe by Paddywagon. It was a great place to stay and I am so happy we stayed here. The bed was comfortable and we had a blast next... More
