We have stayed here twice and will go back again as soon as we can. Quiet, relaxing and homey. Tommy and Marianne are like family, welcoming us with a basket of food to get started in the apartment. It's small, but perfect as a base to go walking or driving around the Dingle Peninsula.

The views from this beautiful cottage overlooking the water, were more than enough to deter us from the negative comments. They couldn't be further from the truth! Marianne and Tommy are so sweet and genuinely love company! The breakfasts were simply amazing. They're cottage is so cozy, we felt right at home! (Not to mention the yummy scones and jam... More

We have visited Dingle several times and If you are heading to Dingle stay with Marianne and Tommy at the Blooming Wildflower Cottage. Location: The town center is a little over a block away so we just parked our car and walked to the Shops and Pubs. Lodging: The beauty of this cottage is not only how it sits along... More

Our room looked out over a cozy deck area filled with flowers and right on the bay. Sitting there on a sunny afternoon was a perfect wind down before going into town for dinner. The room was very comfortable and clean. Marianne and Tommy were great hosts! Breakfast is upstairs in sunny room with lots of windows and a beautiful... More

I stayed with my partner in the self-catering Wildflower apartment during a particularly wet and miserable week in August. The apartment has a small sitting area, a deck, great views over the bay, and a bedroom and kitchen (private bathroom is across the hall). The entire apartment is tastefully decorated with cute lighthouses and wildflower motifs. It also comes with... More

We loved our stay at Blomming Wildflower Cottage. Marianne is a wonderful host. This B&B is right on the Dingle bay and is a very short walk into town. The back flower garden is amazing and so relaxing. The location, view, and hospitality of this B&B can't be beat. Marianne was very helpful as we planned our days and knows... More

As a nineteen year old girl traveling alone, choosing a comfortable and safe place to stay was definitely a top priority for me. As soon as I arrived Marianne made me a cup of tea and brought me a slice of cake in the breakfast nook which has a spectacular view of the Dingle bay. She then gave me a... More

This was the most unique of our 'Ireland Adventure' B&B's. Tom welcomed us at the front door and Marianne showed us the way out back to the Captain's Room. This is a bedroom with a small table and two chairs at the window overlooking Maranne's beautiful flower garden, a small patio and a big Dingle Bay. The patio area would... More

My wife and I have just returned from a road trip around South West Ireland, which by the way is beautiful. We stayed only 1 night at all our stops as we wanted to see as much as we could of the coastline. But the service and facilities at Blooming Wildflower Cottage were so good we stayed a 2nd night!!...
