My husband and I stayed here for 3 nights in June 2013 and had the best time! Denise was an excellent hostess, and the home is beautiful. When I asked Denise if there were any laundromats in Dingle, she told me there weren't, but then was so kind as to do all of our wash for us while we were out for the day. I was so pleasantly surprised to come home and find all of our dirty laundry had been cleaned and folded and placed on our bed. Wow! The breakfasts were superb, the location is perfect (just outside of town), and the view is beautiful. We had a room that faced the front, overlooking the cemetery and the harbor. It was roomy, and clean. There's a hot water kettle/coffee/tea in the room. The bathroom had great water pressure, but we did have to turn it off/on a couple of times in order to get it to work correctly.
I had to think really hard to come up with any criticisms of Dunlavin House. If I had to give any at all, they would be that the wifi doesn't work in the bedrooms, so we had to go into the common rooms downstairs every night in order to skype with our kids. That wasn't a big deal, but I was concerned about disturbing any other guests. The second thing would be that it seemed that Denise may have overbooked for our first night, so we stayed in a room downstairs for the first night, but she moved all of our items upstairs for us into a beautiful room for the remaining two nights. The upstairs room was definitely better, but I don't believe she books people into the downstairs room very often... it must have been a special circumstance.
I would definitely stay here again... and plan to!
The upstairs room facing the harbor is roomy and has a beautiful view!
