Gracious host welcomed us warmly on a rainy evening and had great dinner recommendations to accommodate our requests. The room was nice and very clean. Breakfast in the morning was splendid. We loved the evening tea and would recommend this B&B.

Beautiful views. Just outside of Dingle but easy enough to hike into town. Great hospitality and very family friendly. Denise knows the area exceptionally well. She informed us about great scenic shortcuts and was willing and able to arrange a boat trip and other extras for us. Very nice experience.

Very clean, very beautiful mountain range when you open the front door. Hostess went beyond the call of duty to accommodate us; phone calls (to help with a booking conflict later in our trip), maps, directions, where to go, what to do. Great food, nice bed, showers. I'd go back in a heart beat. Kris

The proprietor Denise Kane is a warm, friendly person, who expressed a desire to meet the needs of her guests. The accommodations were comfortable and pleasant. A hair dryer and hot pot were provided along with plenty of tea bags, sugar, and milk. The bed was very comfortable, providing an excellent night's rest. A menu was provided at breakfast. The...

I will congratulate myself for picking this one. We had not been to Dingle town for several years, so none of the places we had stayed before were still in business. Dunalvin House is a little ways out of town. I think one could fairly easily walk to town, but some might find it too far. We had a car,... More

Our party of 4 was welcomed by Denise who had set a much appreciated warming fire for us on a cool and damp afternoon in March. We spent two evenings here and took advise from our host on what to see and where to eat. Everything was perfect and could not have asked for anymore. The accomodations were more than... More

My daughter and I arrived in Dingle late in the afternoon on a very rainy day in early March. We didn't realize that many B&Bs are not open until later in the month so our search was not as easy as planned. The Dunlavin House (beautiful) was open and Denise, the owner, gave us a very warm welcome. Our room... More

Denise was very welcoming and her home was one of the most beautiful we stayed at while on our trip. Breakfast was outstanding and the room was very comfortable. Denise recommended that we take a drive around the peninsula, the view was breathtaking. We highly recommend staying here and hope to be able to come back ourselves.
