Its a pity I didn't take pictures of the room. Its nice and modern, clean and very spacious. Probably nicer in reality that the pictures already posted. We had a nice sea view from the top floor. The other rooms we saw also looked nice. Breakfast was excellent and the restaurant was very good. Staff were friendly and very helpful.... More

Stayed with my son for two nights and had a great time. Very helpful and friendly staff and very clean hotel. We enjoyed our "full Irish" breakfast and had a wonderful evening meal. Although very busy we were very well looked after and couldn't complain about our experience. A different way of life where you can relax and have a... More

The Hotel and Rooms were exactly what we were looking for, our problem was with the "Receptionist"! We had 4 single rooms booked and while golfing got a phone call to say they had overbooked and wanted 1 room back, I declined the offer of a free meal with the request. When we arrived at the Hotel we were greeted... More

Perfectly located for experiencing the Dingle Peninsula. We spent 3 nights here and did day trips to islands, Dingle and the Slea Head Drive. Everyone on staff was charming, as were the other guests. The room overlooking the ocean was clean, large and comfortable. Breakfast was excellent.

Stayed in the hotel for one night on a Saturday. One family room two adults, two children. Room was large, very neat and tidy. In the bar that evening was music, the volume level was perfect as you could still talk and hear yourself while the music went on. Lobby, Bar and Restaurant areas all very clean, well laid out...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Uniquely located in the middle of Ballyferriter village on the Dingle Peninsula, halfway the Slea Head drive with its breathtaking views, the newly built Ceann Sibéal Hotel opened its doors in July 2004. Nestled amidst an idyllic scenery, a walking distance away from the beaches of Smerwick harbour, you can enjoy a visit to the local museum or nearby heritage sites, have a round of golf on the nearby links golf course (2 minutes drive), enjoy angling, cycling, horse riding, visit the inspiring Blasket Islands and other activities, to finish your evening with a delicious meal and even a night of traditional music in our bar or in one of the three pubs across the street.Our charming, 3***, family-feel hotel has 26 bedrooms, which are all equally spacious and comfortable and are decorated to create a most relaxing atmosphere. Some of the rooms have commanding views of Smerwick harbour, the Three Sisters, Sybil Head, Mount Brandon or spectacular sunsets over the ocean.We hope to be welcoming you to the Ceann Sibéal Hotel in the near future. ... more   less
