Truly remarkable ALL STAR experience while at PAX. Could not recommend highly enough for a treat and will most defiantly return. The sumptuous rooms and gorgeous bed only rivalled by epic views. Exciting to wake up to immense dawn rising over Dingle Bay and Kerry Mountains. Hospitality by John is outstanding and the table served mouth watering breakfast worth a trip to Dingle alone. We spend many hours over the breakfast table enjoying courses of delicacies and home baked and cooked surprises. All of that - plus the cutest pooch to enhance the perfect treat getaway - Jules the Springer/ Labrador connection. She was a lucky puppy to be rescued by talented and charming host John. On this occasion I travelled for (essential) work in party of 4 and we all felt that it was world class and returned with feeling of having a holiday more than work. Supporting Irish hospitality is a joy when offering the best in the world.

easily one the loveliest BnB's I've ever stayed in. It's more like the standard of a 5 star hotel only more intimate. I'm a tv presenter and I stay in places all over the world but not like this. Every ounce of this place has been meticulously thought out with love and care to the highest standard. Other owners would have let the breath taking panoramic views do all the work but not here. Its just a dream and John was the most caring natural, giving host. Breakfast was the best I've ever had. I hope you don't book it because I want to come back as soon as I can. If you're lucky enough to be able to book in do it. You'll never regret it. Thank you so much for turning my work trip into the most pleasant break imaginable. Slán Sean! See you soon

We were beyond impressed with Pax guesthouse. Our rooms were amazing, with stunning views of the bay and a very comfy bed. John was so personable, a lovely friendly face to see in the morning while enjoying our delicious breakfast. Cannot wait to stay here again post lockdown. And will be recommending to everyone I know. A stay here will make the perfect Christmas gift ❤️ you haven’t stay here!!!

The setting and views from Pax are simply divine. The house is relaxing , warm and inviting. John and Jules are the essence of Kerry hospitality, super friendly, and both were remarkable hosts. The attention to detail is superb. Bedrooms are wonderful, spacious and comfortable. En-suite bathrooms are great , plenty of space , lovely towels and gorgeous Voya toiletries. Breakfast is the icing on the cake. In short we had a great time and can’t wait to return in the future

Late posting the review but had a thoroughly enjoyable few days in Dingle and Pax House in September. John and the team are wonderful hosts and the service was top class throughout. Pax House is only a short stroll to the town and very accessible. The breakfasts were worth the price alone!!! We will be back. Fiona & Cathal
