I and several members of my family have eaten here dozens of times (& love the food never before an issue) and I went there with a friend while visiting Dingle last Friday and I can honestly say I have not experienced such terrible service in years. The two individuals working where totally disinterested in all those dining that evening.... More

With a group of friends, we had lunch here during summer 2013, while touring the Dingle peninsula. While we did not stay the night, the lunch of seafood in the bar was absolutely to die for. Fantastic and recommended.

Myself and my husband booked 2 nights with breakfast for the October weekend. It's a lovely spot and despite the bad weather we had a great time. The room was spacious, bright and cheerful. Tea and coffee making facilities, a fine big bathroom and a nice clean room, added to our enjoyment. The staff were friendly and I had one... More

I am very surprised by all the "excellent" reviews of this hotel. While it's not terrible, it's very unremarkable. The receptionist had to be tracked down each time we needed assistance. The room, while large, was musty smelling and had extremely outdated furniture - we actually pitied this poor little hotel because it looked like they were trying to make... More

the Pub/Lounge attached to this hotel was a late evening stop as we made our way around the Slea Head loop tour back to Dingle. We stopped, took a peek inside and definitely decided to stay.
