“Don't look any further”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 16, 2011

We stayed here for 2 nights and would highly recommend it. The house is just outside the town but this means it is away from the hustle and bustle of the town centre (which can get quite busy in high season) and it's still only 10 minutes to walk in. It also means you get a nice view of the town. Blandina is a very warm host and chatted away to us each morning at breakfast. Our room, and every other part of the house, was spotless and we had a single and double bed in the room, as well as a generous ensuite bathroom. The breakfast was more varied than you would normally expect, so apart from the standard 'full irish' you could also have a very large selection of fruit, or a toasted ham, cheese and tomato sandwich, or smoked salmon and scrambled egg. We tried all of these 3 and they were all delicious.
Overall it was a very enjoyable stay and I expect Clonmara will move towards the top of the ratings once the number of reviews increases.

Michael and Blandina O'Connor manage a spotless, family friendly B&B just outside of Dingle Town and next to Milltown House. (I believe Blandina's father is the current or former owner). My son and I spent only one night (wished we could have stayed longer) yet immediately bonded with our hosts, especially Michael who shared our passion for cycling. (We had just completed a six day cycling tour of Connemara). Our hosts were very helpful recommending good restaurants, music shops, and points of interest. Michael even gave us the name of a good cycling shop in Tralee. I would recommend this B&B also for its quiet, relaxing environment.

I just had to comment on this particular Bed and Breakfast after reading the comments from the previous reviewer. Firstly, I checked with the owners and the B&B is not even open in January and porridge is not served - so obviously this 'none of your business' person is lying and never stayed in Clonmara. As with all the other comments, I had a great visit and will be back.

We can only confirm saravags' statements: Clonmara was absolutely our favourite of the 12 B&Bs we stayed at during our trip in Ireland. Ideal location a little outside of Dingle with a splendid view on to the sea and on the town, spacious and comfortable rooms with a big bathroom, very friendly, open minded and accommodating hosts always open for discussions. Besides of being a perfect host, Blandina is also a great artist and many of her paintings decorate the house.

Of all of the B&B's we stayed at while in Ireland, Clonmara was our favorite. The view on to the sea was beautiful, the location was convenient to town, the rooms were inviting and the hosts were accomodating. Michael took time to explain a bit about Irish football to us and Blandina even dried the laundry I had hung out to dry in my bathroom! And if you get tired of traditional Irish breakfasts, have their Toasted which is a grilled ham, cheese and tomato sandwich. Mine was was served with homegrown raspberries and a fuschia blossom on top!

  • Liked — The location and the breakfast too!
