My husband and I spent two great nights here. The view of the water from our room was incredible. Our favorite thing to do was to walk along the cliffs to the local pub (Tigh T.P. - where we had two great dinners). Breakfast was fresh and yummy. The staff was very helpful in assisting in planning outings.

This was our favourite spot. We did a hiking holiday with Walk Hike Bike and stayed here for 3-4 nights in September 2017 as part of the tour. The rooms were amazing and the showers were strong and hot! The breakfasts were heavenly and the two dinners were fantastic. Afternoon tea was nice as well with a few cakes and Barry’s tea. The only potential drawback or benefit is that it is outside of Dingle. You can walk to the 2 local pubs in the evening but I would recommend a taxi/ride back as it’s over 2 kms if I recall.

This B&B had spectacular views as you can see in pics. These sheep were our walking companions. Room was spacious, clean, and comfortable. Staff was component, friendly and helpful. Breakfasts were excellent! We had a romantic dinner with wine at Gormans one night. Great service, food & drink. My wife and I ventured out on walk at 10 pm along path you see in pics. If you are ambitious the path takes you to a little ocean side village with neat restaurant the best seafood chowder I have ever had. About 2 mike walk! If your looking to enjoy the Irish countryside in a great setting this is the place! Make sure to visit the town of Dingle. Larry

Though slightly away from Dingle, it's only 15 minutes by car and VERY worth it to make that trip to stay here. We actually preferred this location to Dingle, which seemed more commercial (though fun!) The family proprietors of Gorman's were friendly and very hospitable; it's more like a small (<10 room) hotel than a house, which brings more privacy and space for guests. The breakfast is delicious. Stay to watch the sunset over the cliffs from the benches out front with a glass of something from the hotel's (small) bar. It was one of the most beautiful I've every seen.

We loved staying here for three nights. Wished it could have been more time. This place wasn't just a hotel, but a home by the sea with warmth and hospitality. It was close enough to Dingle to visit and far enough to enjoy the beautiful and scenic countryside and cliffs. Upon arrival, we were greeted by Vincent, who was very kind and showed us our beautiful room with wonderful views. The breakfast was delicious and plentiful and the other guests were very friendly. We especially enjoyed the pancakes and bacon with maple syrup. He told us about hiking on the cliffs nearby, which were fantastic. We ran into an older local gentleman and his dog, who was very friendly and conversational. The sun set over the water in the evening and was quite the show. Gorman's Clifftop House Hotel is a very relaxing place to recharge and rest during your adventures in Ireland. We would highly recommend this place! I hope to return there one day.
