Stayed here for a night and we had a lovely time. The staff, food and room were lovely, altogether a lovely stay! Went to a great pub across the road that had other food options, but we stuck to the hotel. Staff treated us like family

I loved this hotel We stayed for three nights and the small staff could not have been more welcoming or friendly or helpful!! My room was very comfortable. Convenient to a nice walk to a beach, some shops & several pubs. It was also a great place to stay for access to day trips!

We stayed here in July 2015. We have stayed here before and as usual we found it good value for money, friendly staff, good food, nice breakfast, peaceful and a perfect base from which to explore the wonderful Dingle Penninsula and Blasket Islands.

We stayed here for 4 nights and had a fantastic time. Very friendly staff , lovely food and a great base for touring. Ballyferriter is a quiet village but there are several bars apart from the hotel so there is no need to travel too far at night. The area has a wealth of lovely beaches, walks and tourist attractions... More

I have stayed in this hotel twice before and each time I love it. The rooms are very comfortable with a nice big bath to relax after a rainy day walking in dingle. We had lunch in the bar the day we arrived and breakfast in the morning. Both very good, hearty, size able Irish meals. Ballyferriter is the place... More

On our visit to Dingle last year we had dinner at the Ceann Sibeal Hotel on two occasions and were so impressed with the food, the service and the ambiance, that for our visit to the peninsula this year we stayed at the hotel for two weeks. Again we had a great experience; Helena and her staff are most friendly,... More

We had a great visit to Ballyferriter last weekend and especially Ceann Sibeal Hotel. We requested a room suitable for a disabled person. The quality of the bathroom with grab rails and raised toilet bowl was fantastic to see. We got an adjoining bedroom. This made life very easy. The staff were wonderful and the food great.

We couldn't figure out the window in our room. I know that sounds stupid, but it was one of those - turn the handle one way and it opens like a door, turn the handle another way and it tilts open from the top kind of deals, and I couldn't figure it out. Down in the bar, I told one... More

This hotel and restaurant has always been a great experience for me, but tonight's dinner fell way short of my expectations. My sister and I had the Fish bake with cooked frozen vegetables, and mash potatoes, which had to have been sitting somewhere for quite awhile. I must have ordered the wrong thing, and the red wine was underwhelming, could... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Uniquely located in the middle of Ballyferriter village on the Dingle Peninsula, halfway the Slea Head drive with its breathtaking views, the newly built Ceann Sibéal Hotel opened its doors in July 2004. Nestled amidst an idyllic scenery, a walking distance away from the beaches of Smerwick harbour, you can enjoy a visit to the local museum or nearby heritage sites, have a round of golf on the nearby links golf course (2 minutes drive), enjoy angling, cycling, horse riding, visit the inspiring Blasket Islands and other activities, to finish your evening with a delicious meal and even a night of traditional music in our bar or in one of the three pubs across the street.Our charming, 3***, family-feel hotel has 26 bedrooms, which are all equally spacious and comfortable and are decorated to create a most relaxing atmosphere. Some of the rooms have commanding views of Smerwick harbour, the Three Sisters, Sybil Head, Mount Brandon or spectacular sunsets over the ocean.We hope to be welcoming you to the Ceann Sibéal Hotel in the near future. ... more   less
