Upon hearing that my dad was trying to chase down his Famine emigrants, she got on the phone and started calling friends with the same surname.

I spent five nights at the Anvil Bar last week. The BnB rooms are spacious, clean and nicely and comfortably furnished. Rooms are on the third floor of the building so you are not bothered by any noise coming up from the bar. The bar itself is also quite nice. Food (breakfast and dinner) and drink are very good as...

Liz advised on where to visit in the Dingle peninsula and even made time to... More

Me and my daughter stayed at the Anvil for a family celebration. From the moment we arrived we were made to feel welcome. Very impressed with our lovely room which was spacious, very clean and comfortable. Liz and her staff were friendly and extremely helpful. We had a very enjoyable stay and will definitely stay again.

After a long day on the road we were made feel most welcome by Liz on arrival at The Anvil Bar. The rooms were spacious clean and comfortable. The pub had a great atmosphere where we enjoyed what felt like a home cooked meal and a few drinks. Before we left the following day, Liz was able to provide suggestions... More
