We chose The Anvil as it was ideally located to be close to the airport Kerry while still offering us the opportunity to tour Dingle peninsula before having to be back at the airport by afternoon of the next day. Had a lovely time there, we regretted we were only able to stay one night. Clean, comfortable rooms, great and... More

We arrived earlier than planned and although it wasn't open yet, the owner, Liz, let us check in and get settled. It is a lovely little B & B and the rooms are a good size, kept very clean and well maintained. The restaurant has great Irish pub food that is fresh, cooked well and tastes delicious! Liz and Stephen... More

We had a late arrival and were very tired and hungry, and it was too late for dinner. However, Liz who was already in the thick of things with a large pre-wedding party, showed us to our room and went out of her way to make us sandwiches (which did the trick). The family room was a good size, warm... More

A wonderful little pub, restaurant and accommodation close to Dingle. We had a fabulous room, spacious, comfortable bed and a well appointed bathroom. The restaurant meals were fantastic. The family were going through a sad time but maintained wonderful hospitality. A great experience.

Excellent location away from the bustle of Killarney, yet very close to the Ring of Kerry. Liz was a great hostess that also gave great suggestions about the Ring of Kerry. She suggested we take the Portmagee bridge and hike to Valentia Observatory for stunning views and she was dead on! The rooms are on the third floor, well removed... More

We stopped at The Anvil Bar and B&B really late in the evening. Fortunately enough there was still a room available (we did the terrible mistake not to pre-book anywhere on the Dingle Peninsula for the night). The room was very comfortable, spacious, very clean and (for our opinion) extremly cheap (70€ B&B, don't forget that Dingle is a very... More

Stayed a night at the Anvil which was fantastic. Great food, warm welcoming, good music and great rooms. The rooms where really big, clean & very comfortable, just really good quality. Sean checked me in and made sure I was comfortable. Liz provided great suggestions for my day out all of which where right on the money. Unfortunately for me,... More
