The property was beautiful. Our daughter loved the pink house. Carmel and Charlie were so friendly and helpful. They gave us great advice and insight on the area. They went above and beyond in their hospitality. Also, great food.

We drove to Ballingowan House from the Cliffs of Moher en route to drive the Dingle Peninsula and Ring of Kerry the next day. It was a fabulous location conveniently located to allow us to see as much of the west/southwest coast of Ireland in two days as possible. It was a great choice! Carmel was an excellent host. The...

Seven of us stayed at Ballingowan House with Carmel and Charlie. It was lovely--beautiful home, welcoming hosts, fabulous breakfast. We called to say we would be a bit later arriving than originally planned and Carmel, in her own, checked into the ferry schedule and telephoned us to give the times and details. The experience at Ballingwan House, the setting, the... More

Carmel was a gracious hostess, welcoming us into her home with a cup of tea and sweet bread. The accommodations were very nice and the breakfast was very good. I would highly recommend this B & B to fellow travelers.

Rooms very clean and comfortable although may be in need of renovating. Overall had a very positive experience. Very nice people in charge. Accomodated a 6am breakfast for us without any issue and even posted a few items onto us free of charge that we left behind us by mistake. Rooms could do with a bit of work but for... More

A friendly welcome from the O'Briens to their lovely home. Excellent location en route to The Ring of Kerry. We were set up for the day after a huge Full Irish breakfast after a good night's sleep. Highly recommend a stay here and also The Mallard Restaurant ten minutes away for dinner.

From our stay here, we easily spent time at the Foynes Flying Boat Museum and Adare Village. We enjoyed meeting and talking with the the O'Briens. Breakfast in their elegant dining room was a nice start to the day.

This was such a delightful three day stay. Carmel and Charles seemed liked family to us. They were a perfect introduction to Ireland. You could not have better hosts or a nicer place to stay. We arrived three hours earlier than planned and were warmly welcomed by Carmel who ushered us to our room and told to take a nap... More
