I was hiking the dingle way when I stayed here before climbing Mt Brandon the next morning. The owner of the pub is truly one of the kindest people I've met in Ireland. He also owns a lovely dog. There is just such a welcoming vibe in this B&B. The breakfast is great. It even has small gourmet pastries and... More

Just arrived home after a very pleasant overnight stay at An Bothar Guesthouse. Having completed one of my "bucket list" items...to reach the summit of the majestic Mount Brandon, I decided to treat myself to some extra time in this beautiful part of the Dingle Peninsula. Muiris and Aileen are lovely host's and made my stay a very enjoyable experience.... More

Very friendly place with pub and restaurant on site. Even though the tourist season was definitely winding down when we were there, they still provided live music in the pub and some of the colorful and friendly locals made it a very enjoyable evening. Rooms very nice, large and comfortable. Heated towel racks were wonderful, as we had hiked in... More

Me and my friend stopped there to eat something and then decided to stay the night. Bar food was ok, they had live music in the evening. Our room was huge and really clean and there was a proper bathtub in the bathroom. Loved it. Breakfast was very generous, with a good choice of cooked food. Wouldn't mind to stay... More

We actually parked our motorhome in their parking lot as they are a member of Safe Nights Ireland. We went to the pub for dinner with our 2 young children. We were visiting from Canada and it was the perfect Irish welcome and evening. The food was good home cooked food, the family served and made sure we had everything... More

This lovely B&B is run by the entire family together. Everyone was very warm, helpful, and gregarious. The room was very spacious, extremely comfortable and tastefully decorated. They had a towel warmer which could also be very helpful if having to dry wet clothing. I am still chuckling every time I think of the shepard opening the front door himself.

Tourist info centre at Kinsale booked this pub for us, we had no idea what to expect. Loved it! Took a while to find and were gob smacked by its feeling of isolation. Owners very friendly, rooms serviced our needs. Views were fantastic! And just what we were hoping to see. One of our Ireland trip highlights. Ate in the... More

We stopped in for a quick pint in the early evening since this pub was closest to our B&B on the north part of the Dingle Peninsula. The beer was good and the bartender offered me half a glass of Guinness to taste next to my pint of Murphy's stout. FYI, the Murphy's tasted better to both me and my... More

Walking from Dunquin to Castlegregory as part of the Dingle Way my husband and I had booked An Bóthar and it turned out to be an unexpected oasis, so welcoming and a very classy room. Maurice and Aileen and there staff are brilliant at what they do. 95% of people who come to An Bóthar are walkers and the rooms... More
