We stayed two nights at he Alpine Guest House and enjoyed every minute of it. Our room was nice, a view over the Dingle Bay, bed was comfy, and the bathroom was great. Paul and Caroline were very friendly and helpful, pointing out restaurants, shops and places to see on the 'Dingle Drive'. The location was perfect, two minutes to the heart of town, large parking lot and on the main road into town so it was easy to find. Breakfast was cooked to order and good. Alpine added to our overall amazing two days in Dingle. We would definitely stay here again.

My girlfriend and I spent our two nights in Dingle at the Alpine Guest House and they stay was exactly what we were looking for. A two minute walk from the main street, our room had a nice view of beautiful Dingle Harbor and its surrounding mountains, even the old stone tower on a hill above the Harbor. The rooms were extremely clean and spacious and the beds were comfortable. The bathrooms were also roomy. Our breakfast was filling and delicious. The owners, Paul & Caroline, could not have been more welcoming. When we return to Dingle, we'll be staying with them again.

We were finally planning to spend 3 nights in one place for the first time during our 2 weeks trip in Ireland and Alpine Guesthouse turned out to the be exactly what we were looking for. Nice room, good breakfast (although that has been pretty standard in Ireland), friendly staff. Good views across the road to the bay were a bonus, and it was perfectly situated just out of the downtown hustle and bustle yet just a few minutes walk away. A great place to relax and enjoy the peninsula. The only downside was slightly thin walls which did little to muffle the sounds of the loud drunk couple returning at 3 am, but the other 2 nights were completely silent.

Dingle is an awesome town to visit. It is very quaint. The Alpine Guesthouse is pretty basic, but clean and comfortable. The bed was especially comfortable. The view from our room was great. Breakfast was in a cute little room and very generous. I thought this bed and breakfast was great for the price. I would definitely stay there again and would recommend this to anyone. I would ask for a room with a view!

We stayed for 2 nights in July 2012. My extended family piled into the Alpine Guesthouse, exhausted, after a long flight from the US and a drive from Shannon Airport. All the rooms were ready and very clean when we arrived, and Caroline was kind in helping us get settled in multiple rooms. While the inn is in a quiet location on the main road, it is an easy walk to all parts of Dingle town, and there is plenty of parking. The place is well organized, and there was a sitting room that allowed our big group to gather. Breakfast was excellent -- a variety of choices, freshly prepared and nicely presented. The rooms were simple but very well-equipped; the Alpine Guesthouse was a wonderful, budget-conscious place from which to enjoy the sights and sounds of Dingle and the peninsula.

Nicely located close to town with a short walk to restaurants, bars, a good sized grocery store, and with the Dingle Way close by. Short walk to wonderful views of the Dingle Harbour. Caroline and her staff were very accommodating and attentive. Great breakfast. Dingle is a neat town with a lot of activity.

Room Tip: There is a discount if you mention the correct travel guide. (I can't remember which one! Maybe...

I have travled to Ireland many times and I always make a point to spend several days in Dingle each trip. I discovered The Alpine Guesthouse by accident on one trip and now I wouldn't stay any place else in Dingle. It is true that they do not have a lift (elevator) and it is true that the rooms are not "fancy" by American standards. However, The Alpine Guesthouse is clean, comfortable, and quiet. It is easily accessible and one can EASILY walk to Dingle's many fine restaurants, pubs, and shops. Paul (the owner) and his staff always make me feel very welcome and right at home. The breakfast is wonderful and is served in a bright cheery room with a nice view. Good coffee, toast, and eggs prepared and served by a friendly staff and the day is off to a great start. The Alpine is a perfect base from which to explore Western Ireland! I can't thank Paul and his staff enough for many great holidays! I can't wait to go back!
