“Lovely family home and stay”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 18, 2013

Stayed here for 2 nights. From the first instance we step into the house the family have been very helpful. Julie and family were the perfect host. Gave us tips on where to eat and what to do. Breakfast was truly plentiful and enough to take away for,lunch. The children were ever so helpful and polite.
Views from the window were lovely loverlooking the sea. Very near town.
My sister hurt her back and julie was great in finding us a therapist and providing a hot water bottle.
The place is clean and lovely. Truly a great stay. Thanks so much JUlie and yr crew. Staying here gave my sisters a chance to see how irish people live.
Highly recommended.

The best view of Dingle Bay right from your window! Rooms are clean and comfortable. Warm and friendly host family, including the children who were ever so eager to help. They gave us the best local tips, including areas to visit around Dingle. Overall, an excellent stay and highly recommended.

My daughter and I stayed at Julie and Joe's place in Dingle. Situated right on the water, this place was absolutely perfect for us. From the moment we arrived, we were greeted and well taken care of by their teenage daughter who was an absolute sweet heart and very informative about all things Dingle. We had a clean, well appointed room. It was not very large, but that was not necessary. We were more than comfortable. And what a beautiful view we had from our room (see pic). We had an ensuite bathroom that once again was spankin' clean. You could easily walk to town... and oh what a town this was. Quintessential Ireland. An absolute must visit in your lifetime kinda place.

Julie and Joe were just the nicest people ever. Julie made the MOST incredible, tasty and bountiful breakfasts for us every morning. I don't think we needed to eat until dinner each day. Someday I hope to return to the beautiful peninsula of Dingle and will undoubtedly stay here again.

We`ve been there for the second time and it is just soo nice. The hosts are serving the best and biggest "All irish breakfast" you can imagine! The rooms are clean and one can enjoy a nice view on the dingle bay! They will give you great ideas how and where to spend your time! Will be back for more stays!

Room Tip: Ask for a room facing the sea!

My wife and friends were in Ireland for just under two weeks and this was the best B+B that we experienced. The accommodations were the cleanest of all places we stayed, there was a wonderful seaside view from our room, the breakfast was great, and the hosts (Julie and Joe) were exceptionally friendly and helpful! Hope to visit again!

...and we found: a room with seaview, lovely furnished with that feeling for small details - and a fantastic hospitality from our hosts Julie and Joe. The breakfast was magnificent (we enjoyed the rest of cheese and fruit salad travelling back to Dublin by train!) and also the talk sitting on the big table in the middle of the kitchen. It was one of our absolute highlights on the Dingle Way. Thank you so much, Julie and Joe, and hope to see you again!

My husband and i stayed here two nights on our honeymoon. We were supposed to stay at a B&B a few doors down but the owner had lost our booking. Luckily for us she called Joe and Julie to see if they had a room with a view for us and they did!
Julie is a wonderful host she took great care in preparing a delicious breakfast we both ordered the continental plus with came with the fruit, veggie and cheese plates. She was so generous with the portions that we were able to take the left overs on foil for our trip around the peninsula! I wish we had had more time in dingle to see all and do all the amazing thing Julie told us about.
She has a wealth of knowledge about her town and the outlying areas an absolute delight to chat with!
