This B&B is outside of town, we walks several times. Luckily another lodger gave us a ride home during a deluge that lasted twelve hours. Ms. Liston was knowledgable about surrounding sites. Breakfast was served in a lovely sunroom.

We stayed here for 2 nights while visiting the Dingle Tradfest. Jill is very accommodating and bent over backwards to give us travel info about the peninsula. Her suggestions ensured the highlights of our 2 weeks trip to Ireland. Whilst at Jill's, both myself and my friend became ill (airplane crud caught up with us). It was nice just to... More

This is a wonderful, wonderful place to stay. First of all, Dingle is just amazingly beautiful and definitely worth a trip! And you should stay here! The house is lovely, very comfortable and an easy walk down into the heart of Dingle town. Jill is a wonderful hostess and lovely person- I cannot say enough nice things about her! For... More

My friend and I stayed with Jill for two nights recently and had such a comfortable stay. Jill is friendly and welcoming and gives all sorts of tips for where to go and what to see. The bedroom we had was spacious and comfortable (once we had mastered how to open the vents in the windows to get fresh air... More

Thank you Fintan for your review and to find that my breakfasts were ‘ok’. . I did read your other negative reviews for the Skelligs Hotel here in Dingle and your other one for Spain.

We stayed 3 daya as a couple in this nice B & B. It situated near Dingle, but very quite and in a natural surrounding. The atmosphere is very friendly and familiar. For us it was a lovely place where we felt very well. Jill is a warm hearted host, who gave us the feeling to be at home. The... More

Thank you so much Marco and Margit for your lovely review here on Trip, and for originally coming for two nights and staying three nights. Your gift of essential oil is much appreciated for my bones and as I've had 4 foot operations, it is definitely being used. I still expect to smell it when I go into the room... More

Stayed here for one night earlier in the week. Arrived tired after a long drive saw Jills B &B and called in on the off chance. So pleased we did.

Well, what can I say about this wonderful couple that went over and above the call of duty to stay at my humble home. I foolishly didn't leave the code for Ireland with my phone number on the door but they managed to remember it and rang me. I had an appointment for an X-Ray in Tralee that day and... More

Jill is a wonderful host who truly makes her guests feel at home. We returned last month (sorry for the late report!) from 9 days in Ireland with our family of 5. In Dingle we stayed in two separate B&B's due to availability, and they were both delightful. Our teenagers appreciated the spacious rooms and wide-open yard with broad views.... More

We arrived at this B&B after a long flight delay and finally making it to Ireland many hours later than expected. We felt instantly right at home with Jill. My partner and I were able to nap while our boys played soccer in her yard after we arrived. Jill was very kind and helpful to us in every way. This... More

Trisha, thank you so much for your lovely comments. It was too short a stay but the two boys were a pleasure. It is so lovely to see young boys kicking football around the garden instead of computer games. This time of the year I suppose you are going to get storms/monsoons in America delaying air flights so if Dingle... More
