I really loved this hotel. It is in the tiny village of Ballyferriter, about 20 minutes from Dingle. We were warmly welcomed by Kristen and felt right at home. Our room was very spacious, clean with a view to the sea. Helena made sure that all our needs and desires were met. She even shared her recipe for the fabulous... More

We stayed here two nights on our sightseeing trip. The room was large and comfortable. Brekfast was excellent, full Irish if you want, or just continental, all included. The morning staff are great, as is the evening bartender, but you often have to go look for staff at other times. Maybe this is typical, but not what I'm used to... More

Attended and stayed in the hotel for a wedding and could not have been happier. On arrival we were greeted with a lovely welcome at check in and the bar. Staff made sure that we had everything we needed during the stay. Dinner was lovely and breakfast very tasty(had to pay extra) and we were kindly allowed late check out... More

We were based at this B&B Hotel for 3 nights and found it very pleasant, but what I most want to comment on is the Tempura Haddock in their bar/restaurant which was so good I ordered it twice in three days. Best fish and chips ever!

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

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
