To notch and attention to detail must be their motto. Everything about Pax was tremendous from the room, to the breakfast, to the helpful nature of the staff to the parking and it's proximity to the heart of town. Details such as providing reflective vests for guests which are found hanging in your closet is evidence that they care and... More

In fact, almost unnervingly über-perfect in a way - but a phantastic experience and worth every single Euro. Breakfas was the best of all our holidays in Ireland - and John is a genuine host (also during the booking/email process). GO THERE!

This was our second stay at the Pax Guest House and it continues to be our favourite place, not only in Dingle but in all of Ireland! John and his entire staff are the most hospitable people you will ever meet. The location is superb. The views are amazing. The rooms are lovely both in terms of decor and space.... More

This was our third trip to Ireland. The first time we visited Dingle, but did not stay at the Pax House. The second time we stayed at the Pax House. Third time, ditto. Future, ditto. GREAT VIEW, perfect location, perfect service. We can’t see a reason to stay elsewhere.

This was the most magical and beautiful guest house! The owner, John O'Farrell, and his staff (especially Margaret and Michelle) called each guest by name immediately. They were very accommodating and Margaret even made me a special breakfast drink for my scratchy throat. It was wonderful to be sitting in a lovely room each morning looking out over the Dingle...

How can you improve on perfection? From the moment we arrived to our departure 17 hours later, our every need was met. NO negatives. John was busy seeing other guests in but showed us to the lounge where we were very happy to soak up the ambience. The artefacts had us spell bound. Our room was faultless. Huge picture windows...

Our Pax House visit was superb from start to finish. John and his staff are so warm and accommodating. From our first inquiry into availability, all the way to check out, he was so attentive, kind and informational. He wanted our experience to be the very best and it was!! Accommodations & Information: John was very responsive in the booking... More

Had a wonderful stay. The owners were not around much because of family issues but their staff was wonderful. Had great views and the best breakfast of our trip. The rooms were large and nice bathrooms with good water pressure. Walkable to town but dark on way back since about half mile from town with no street lights. Seems more... More

This is a great place with excellent service and hospitality. We went in July 2016 and look forward to returning. The rooms are spectacularly decorated and we enjoyed the view of the country and Dingle bay. Breakfast was perfect and the common lounge areas inside and outside are a delight. Highly recommend staying for a few nights at the least!

My heart aches that we only spent one night at the Pax Guest House. John is a gracious host and fantastic chef! I have never stayed at a hotel or B&B anywhere in the world that compares to the level of service and attention to detail the Pax House offers. The views of Dingle Bay are breathtaking. John takes time... More
