Disappointed to arrive and find that not ALL rooms have a view, as we were led to believe. we were in the tiny back room with no view. We were able to sit out in the front garden and take in the beautiful view. On the plus side the breakfast was great, loved the porridge, the cooked breakfast was very... More

I am giving the staff of The Plough B&B four stars because they did their best to help me find another place after Booking.com overbooked us. We received a confirmation email from Booking.com so I assumed everything was fine, but didn't see an email sent later by The Plough stating that they are fully booked but was holding another place...

Room was comfortable, very clean and well furnished with private bathroom, lovely view. Excellent choice of things for breakfast including porridge, fruit, yoghurt and several cooked options. Once you got used to the idea that host was on her own timetable and went with the flow it was fine.

We were really pleased to have stayed here over August bank holiday weekend. We only booked that day and found the hostess, Beatrice refreshingly friendly and nice. Tea was warmly accepted when we arrived as we had just come from the Blaskets. She was friendly and chatty and we briefly mingled with other guests. She recommended a fabulous place in... More

We booked the King room for 2-nights with great views of the Ventry Bay. The location and view are quiet good (I'm actually glad we stayed outside of Dingle, which was a hot mess with so many tourists and parking was a huge pain--but it is important to know this is about a 10-minute drive away from Dingle town). We... More

Beatrice is a marvelous hostess. Her breakfasts are fantastic and she is most helpful with travel information. The location of this B&B is perfect for exploring the western edge of the Dingle peninsula, with easy access to Dingle town and Slea Head drive. Rooms are clean and bright. And, indeed, the view from out front is extraordinary.

The view from our room was absolutely stunning! The room itself was nicely decorated and had such a homey feel to it! Beatrice was very welcoming and so helpful in helping us decide how to spend our evening. Ventry Village is incredibly small, but the pub is within walking distance, so we enjoyed ourselves there. The breakfast Beatrice served was... More

Can't say enough good things about this B&B stay. The hostess was wonderful. Friendly, helpful, great cook and made our stay of three nights perfect including a hot water bottle for bed on a chilly night. Great location for Dingle town or Slea Head. Beautiful vistas of Ventry Bay. HIghly recommend a stay here.
