“Enjoyable and Good Location”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 15, 2013

This Lodge is pretty much in the heart of Dingle without being next to the noisy pubs. The Lady who checked us in (the proprietor?) was lively and entertaining. The room was large, clean and comfortable. The breakfast was well-prepared and the service cheerful. Parking was provided at no charge.

We had a warm welcome in the lobby, with some coffee and tea.

Because we were three people, we got one of the best rooms available. The view was stunning, with direct look on the harbour and sea. Dingle itself is a great place, so we were extremely happy to stay at Marina Lodge for 2 days.

Everything was clean, good bathroom, big beds that gave us a good nights' sleep. The only thing though...a B&B should have breakfast included, no? Well, apparently not. Breakfast would cost us an extra 10 euros or so per person which we decided not to do.

Thanks for the warm welcome, I will surely return to Marina Lodge. Definitely worth the money!

Never had a quarter of an uncooked tomato in a cooked! Breakfast. Could do with a really good deal clean everywhere. I'm not saying don't go but we were slightly disappointed especially with breakfast.

Room Tip: Our room had a wardrobe but our friends didn't and their room was smaller.

We booked a one night stay for 17th of August and had a call from the B&B the Wednesday to confirm our stay, which we did. Imagine our surprise then to arrive at 5:30pm to be told that our room had been cancelled.

The lady who spoke to us, only via intercom, could not be less helpful or more rude as we queried what we were to do having travelled all day only to find no place to stay. We were informed that this was not her fault as she "didn't scratch our name out, someone else did". Before she hung up on us.

This threatened to ruin our stay in Dingle, Avoid this place.

This was a last-minute Irish adventure for some friends and myself to have a quick trip to the West Coast of Ireland. We arrived in Dingle and the town was packed, kind of in the same way that Mary and Joseph would have found in Bethlehem on 24 Dec AD0000. I tried to book a room on a website using my phone, and thought I had been successful, but then a few minutes later Dawn called to tell me that the room had gone to a walk-in before they had chance to update the site. BUT, Dawn then promised she would phone around and find us another place to stay in Dingle.

Being a group of three blokes, this is a awkward size group to try and accommodate, and we started to worry about finding somewhere, and by now we were over the legal alcohol limit for driving, so we were pretty much stuck in Dingle!. 20 minutes later, Dawn phoned back and said that she felt so bad about cancelling on us that she had moved things around, moved a single bed into another room and could accommodate us after all - AND, she would throw in breakfast for free for causing us the worry! What an absolute legend!

The place itself was very clean and comfortable, and all the staff were jolly and cordial at all times. The breakfast was excellent and even though one of my friends came back quite drunk from town and fell asleep on a sofa, they took this with good humour and simply helped him find our room. An excellent place and I will try very hard to stay there again, next time I am in Dingle. Thank you Dawn!

Room Tip: Don't book last-minute while semi-drunk...

A big thank you to Marina Lodge for their support to us on our Round Ireland Challenge. The Marina Lodge is right beside the marina, a great location for boaters and those wishing to be right beside the town centre. We were made very welcome, the rooms were excellent and the breakfast superb.

Room Tip: If you are arriving at Dingle by boat this is a close to the Marina as you can get.

This is the second time I've stayed at the Dingle Marina Lodge and they don't disappoint. Dawn, the manager is a delight and very helpful and knowledgeable regarding any information you may need on the area. I travel alone and have always had the single room next to the front desk; it feels like my room now. The room is quite large as is the bath. The shower in the bath has to be the best power shower in Ireland! I wish I had one like it at home. Everything about the room was very clean and comfortable; there is a fridge and computer located in the lounge for the guests to use. Another thing I liked was, although attentive when you need them, the staff let you maintain your privacy and you don't feel like your in a stuffy mom and pop with someone watching your every move; your free to come and go as you like without being afraid your going to disturb someone else. Dingle Marina Lodge is conveniently located across from the marina where all the boat tours leave from; you can purchase your tickets for the tours at the little shop there; they also sell snacks, ice cream and coffee. Dingle Marina Lodge is delightful and I look forward to staying with them again when in Dingle Town.

Room Tip: The price they charge per night is comparable to any other B&B in Dingle; especially for the loc...
