I recently stayed here with my boyfriend, and I have to say it was one of the best B and B's I have ever stayed in. We arrived to the B and B late in the evening and were exhausted from all the travelling. But Inspiration Lodge soon improved the exhaustion ,once I saw this magnificent B and B! We were greeted by our hostess , a lovely kind lady who showed us to our rooms and gave us information about the local area. The B & B is wonderfully decorated inside with photos on canvas, natural scenery pictures, the B & B was clean and had a lovely clean smell throughout the house. Our bedroom was a double room , with crisp, white, clean sheets, tiled throughout and had plenty of space. Our double room screamed comfort and cleanliness. The bathroom was also very beautiful and had glossy shiny tiles , and our shower in the bathroom had a great supply of hot water too. White really was the colour in our room, beautiful white walls and sheets created a calming atmosphere. I just loved the room so much!! And when we opened the windows, the village was so quiet , you could even hear the sheep in the nearby fields. The sweet aroma of the turf also wafted through the air. I loved this little village so much!
Later that night, we decided to go to the pub next door , this pub has a wonderful old world charm attached to it! The atmosphere inside was amazing, lots of young people were inside and there was even karaoke happening that night! Dare I say it , the two of us resorted to some singing also- a little Bruce Springsteen number went down nicely!!
After a wonderful nights sleep at the B & B we went downstairs and got The Full Irish breakfast, freshly cooked with freshly brewed coffee! I was in Heaven! As I really do love breakfasts and this B & B certainly knows how to do breakfast in style!!
Our hostess in the B & B then arranged for us to go on the Dingle Tour with Paddywagon Tours, as we longed to see Dingle and Slea Head for some time but had not got the chance before.
As we set out on our tour the scenery was fantastic! We saw sloping glens, beautiful green fields and Slea Head is one of the best places to visit in my opinion. I definitely recommend doing this tour with Paddywagon Tours. Our guide was named Darren! And he was truly amazing! Slea Head was beautiful and has such open scenery. On our tour we also saw the beehive huts , where the monks lived and wrote the scriptures, the famine cottages, and breathing taking views of the islands like the Blaskets. I also loved the fact that on this tour the guide let us take plenty of photos and we had plenty of time to stretch our legs also. On Slea Head we also got to see and visit a fertility rock from stone age times,and that was pretty cool!! The landscape on this tour is amazing and very spiritual! We also got to spend time in Dingle town and had a great lunch in the town. This was nicely washed down with Murphy' Ice-cream.
Later on when the tour was finished we arrived back to the Inspiration Lodge . I had a wonderful stay here at the B & B and took a wonderful tour with Paddywagon Tours out onto the Dingle Peninsula . We shall be back to Inspiration Lodge really soon and we cannot wait!!! Roll on next year!! Thank you to everyone at the Inspiration Lodge in Anascaul!!
