Friends recommended this hotel and we were not disappointed. The rooms were comfortable and the hotel is right on the main road coming into Dingle. Convenient location to walk most anywhere in town. Nice pub adjacent with fine breakfasts and dinners.

We started our adventure in Dingle with a flat tire as soon as we pulled into a parking spot in town. Not to worry, the staff at The Dingle Bay Hotel found us a mechanic, and we had our tire fixed within an hour. We cannot say enough good things about the welcoming staff, clean rooms, and lovely décor at this hotel. The rooms themselves are basic, but very clean. The heated tile floors in the bathroom are an added bonus!

We spent a good bit of time in the attached pub, Paudies Bar. The staff here was friendly and helpful as well. The seafood chowder is not to be missed.

Breakfast in the morning was also quite lovely. The choices were nicely varied, and served hot and fresh, with a lovely assortment of cereals and juices to complement the hot entrees.

The location of the hotel is central to the quieter end of town, facing the marina. We found the walk around the harbor and the shops and pubs close by to be convenient and welcoming. There are two grocery/convenience stores located nearby, as well.

We felt like our wonderful three nights in Dingle were not enough, and we will definitely plan to come back and stay at the Dingle Bay Hotel when we return! Cheers!

We spent two nights at the Dingle Bay Hotel in September 2013 while on a tour with Vagabond Adventure Tours. This was our only two night stay of the trip, and they picked a good hotel and town to spend some extra time in. The hotel was clean, the staff very helpful and the restaurant very good. The hotel is very well located, right across from the harbor and near shops and restaurants. We plan to visit Dingle again when we return to Ireland, and we will stay at the Dingle Bay Hotel.

My husband and I stayed in Dingle Bay Hotel in November as part of our 1st year wedding anniversary combined with our holidays!

The staff were very welcoming, rooms were modern and clean, food was very good (loads of choice for breakfast) and the location was brilliant as it was looking out onto the harbour and the mountains around and it was very central to all amenities! Will definitely visit again!

On my trip to Dingle, I stopped off here and had some lunch. There is a lovely bar area, very traditional Irish in my mind, and it was very busy with pub lunches, when I was there. I had tea and sandwiches and they were very tasty. The bread was fresh , with tasty ham, cheese and coleslaw! It was the perfect lunch for a break and a breather. Very nice decor inside and staff were young and very helpful. Great pub to eat in !

Lovely warm reception, nice room, great bar area and great food. Very friendly and helpful staff. What more can I say? The only downside was the parking, but even this wasn't a problem. Would definitely recommend a stay here.

Spent a weekend vacation here Nice hotel, food & drink excellent, Staff very helpful & cheerful. Drive to Car park could do with an overhaul. We were upgraded (nice touch) to a suite and it was very pleasant. We enjoyed our stay at this hotel and would recommend.
