I booked a room here for two nights for my fiance's birthday as a surprise getaway. Lodge was extremely clean and the manager was very friendly ☺️ Unfortunately possibly the worst nights sleep from the creaky beds and uncomfortable mattress and pillows. We cancelled our second nights stay which was unfortunate as we were really looking forward to staying here.... More

We had the pleasure of staying here. The manager is full of knowledge and energy and takes pride in her operation of the lodge. The entire place was spotless. The bed was very comfortable. The TV did have limited channels but I did not come to Ireland to watch TV. The common area downstairs was very comfortable. There was a... More

When we arrived the house looked abandoned no sign of life around. We had to go next door for the key and there was no one there,we had to go looking for a sign of life. The receptionist went over the basics and then hurried us off to our room, thus we were welcomed to the inspiration lodge. The B... More

The reception was not typical Irish and the place was desolated on arrival, next door people running it and they were a bit uncertain who to do what when we tried to find somebody, so we were shown the bedroom immediately and off the guy went. At the end only introduced himself, not welcoming us at all. Bedroom small but... More

We had such a lovely stay! The accommodation is modern, clean and spacious. We had lovely cooked breakfast. It's just outside Dingle central which is great. The manager is wonderful. Young and vibrant. 07/06/2016

Super comfy bed, quiet, and amazing breakfast! Great little market about 50m away! Seriously, one of the best breakfasts we had in Ireland! Small rooms (with ensuite) and great wifi. Only complaint was we had to wait until 4 pm to check in. Otherwise, perfect hostess and perfect nights stay.

The Lodge is next door to a hostel and run by the same staff. The room was okay. Tile floors in the hall and bedrooms made every noise resonant throughout. There were "dust bunnies" around the furniture but the linens and bathroom all seemed clean. The breakfast was good but with the facility full the first night of our stay,... More

We stayed in this beautiful bed and breakfast one night while visiting Dingle. The accommodations were very clean and the food fantastic! Shea was the great host of the B&B and the adjoining hostel. She did a great job!

We stayed here on the first night of our Paddywagon tour, and it was one of the best B&Bs of the whole trip. The interior is completely refurbished and feels very modern. Our room was a little small but very clean, and it had a gorgeous view of the mountains behind the building. Breakfast in the morning (full Irish) was... More

My family and I stayed here as part of our Paddywagon Tour and enjoyed staying here. The thatched roof gave the lodge a cosy and inviting feel and we weren't disappointed. Our rooms were newly refurbished, with great beds, tea and coffee making facilities and biscuits and a beautifully clean ensuite. We enjoyed a generous full Irish breakfast and the... More
