“Everything perfect about this place”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 14, 2013

The view, the friendliness, the proximity to town, the fabulous breakfast, the lovely room.....everything here was perfect. The decor is so exquisite but very "Dingle". She even offered us wine glasses when we asked if she would chill our wine.

Viviienne knows how to make a traveller comfortable and welcomed.

Stayed in great room overlooking harbor. Half a mule from center of Dingle. Spacious and clean, with reasonable price.
Hostess Vivienne seemed curt & abrupt when compared with other B&B hosts/hostesses we met. Perhaps she was having a bad day...
Would stay there again... but compared with other Irish hospitality we experienced, that stood out.

My daughter, my friend and I stayed at Coastline for 2 nights while exploring Dingle. Vivienne was very nice at check in and gave us a map with suggestions on it. The seafood place, I think its called Boatyard, is awesome. Crab quiche!! Breakfasts were good. Our room was awesome. Although we did not have an ocean room, we had a huge room with 3 beds, 2 chairs and side table, desk. Large bathroom with large tub and a huge closet. Its a short walk into town. One our 2nd day at breakfast we were treated to a large full double rainbow that ended in the bay out front. What more can you ask for!

I truly don't understand the few negative reviews of Coastline Guesthouse. A friend and I stayed here at the end of September. The property is lovely, the rooms very comfortable, breakfast was delicious and Vivienne O'Shea, the proprietor, was friendly and hospitable. Great location, easy walk to town. I will definitely stay here again on my next visit.

Whie the property certainly is exceptional, Vivianne [--] lacks manners or any sense of Irish hospitality. If you enjoy a cold reception, lack of privacy where the landlady can barge into your room unannounced and go through your kit while you are out, and a cook who can not properly fry an egg, well this is the place for you. You will get more respect in a hostel dorm, at a better price. Yikes..

We stayed 3 days at the end of July and we were extremely pleased with our bed and breakfast selection. It is a great location, easy walk into town and the breakfasts were Delicious! Vivienne was a helpful host, especially with providing directions. Highly recommend this bed and breakfast..

This is a wonderful B&B experience. The rooms are exceptionally nice and sparkling clean. There are 2 ground floor rooms that are spacious & beautifully decorated. Vivienne has paid great attention to amenities and is very accommodating. The rooms are spacious including the bathroom. Great breakfast with a variety of specials, including the Bailey's porridge which is unique (I didn't see this anywhere else in our travels across the country). Vivienne offers great suggestions for daily itineraries as well as dining options in the village which is only a short walk (another advantage). HIghly recommend this B&B!!!!! Looking forward to the next visit!

Room Tip: The ground floor rooms are fantastic (and you don't have to carry your luggage upstairs!)
