“Wonderful!”
Reviewed October 25, 2012

When I opened the door into The Lighthouse B&B for the first time, the scent of freshly baked Irish Soda Bread enveloped me. Denis came out in an apron and helped me to my lovely room. Everything during my time there was as lovely as that first moment. The food, the service, the amenities--all exceeded my expectations. And the short walk into town was so good for my thighs!

What a spectacular location overlooking Dingle's harbor. We were warmly greeted by Denis who was very helpful, even assisting with our bags. He provided a map and made suggestions about restaurants. Extremely comfortable rooms, and a delicious breakfast cooked to order by Mary. Highly recommended!

Great breakfasts with lots of variety. Wonderful oatmeal. This B&B operates more like a hotel than a B&B. Room and bath were spacious and clean. It is a modern house. Unfortunately, the walls are very thin so noise carried. Fast internet service. It is within walking distance of Dingle which is helpful because free parking is limited and paid parking expensive. Excellent views of the harbor.

Very nice, fairly new, home with a view of the Bay. It was about a 15-20 minute walk into town. Owners were nice. They had a computer in the common room that the guests could use. Wi-Fi was free of course. Breakfast was good. No complaints. Would stay here again if I was in the area.

Room Tip: If you get a room on the upper level it will be quieter. Being on the main level we did hear footste...

We loved this B&B. They were extra friendly, our room was large and clean, the breakfast was delicious. Great location - pretty view from the house and you can walk to town. Mary, the owner, even held our baby for us while we ate breakfast!

We arrived at the Lighthouse B&B after a long drive from Dublin. Because it was a clear and gorgeous day, we opted to take the Connor Pass into Dingle. What a spectacular trip that was - but in doing so, we arrived a bit later than planned. Denis was very understanding at our late arrival (I believe we interrupted their dinner). Denis, however, took the time to give us a map, outlining several places for dinner as well as some good pubs to enjoy music. He was very helpful, pointing out the comfortable living room with a computer for guest's use, as well as lovely views of the Dingle harbor. We'd hoped to do a bike tour along parts of Slea Head Drive the next day - Denis gave us information where to rent bikes and provided a book with some walking tours that might be useful.

Our room, on the back of the house, did not have the gorgeous views that the rooms on the front enjoy, but we were lucky enough to get their last available room. When (not if!) we come back to Dingle, I would book earlier and ask for a room with the view. However, the room itself was large and nicely decorated, very clean with up to date furnishings and linens. The bathroom was stocked with toiletries, and though the shower was small, the water pressure was great and the shower soothing! Wifi is available in the room which is a nice feature for people like me who like to do a bit of research on weather and the next day's plans. There is also a nice patio with furniture on the front of the house, overlooking the bay, which is a nice place to relax at the end of the day.

The B&B is easy to find from the town center - and is only a 5 minute walk with sidewalks and streetlights for those coming back after dark. It is perfectly located - outside the hustle and bustle and noise of town, with a spectacular view of the harbor as well as the hills on the backside of the house. Ample parking is available. With it being on the western side of Dingle, it is a great location for starting out on the Slea Head Drive w/o having to drive through town.

Breakfast was typical of most of the B&Bs we stayed in with a good selection of both hot and cold choices. Everything was made to order, fresh and tasty, and provided us with a full stomach to get us through most of the day.

We had planned two nights in Dingle but due to my late reservations and change in itinerary, we were only able to book one night at the Lighthouse. We switched the next night to another more expensive B&B that has top ranking on TA and gets rave reviews, but honestly, we preferred Lighthouse B&B. Our room and bed was more comfortable (and despite being on the back of the house had a nicer view) and its close location to town, fabulous views of the harbor and wonderful and hospitable owners, Denis and Mary, made it our favorite stay in Ireland.

We look forward to our next stay!

Room Tip: If possible, ask for a room that has a view of the harbor. Our room on the back was lovely and spac...

Mary was incredibly helpful with insight on the area and very welcoming and hospitable. The rooms are big, clean and quiet. One minute ride to the center of everything...pubs, music. Harbour looks like Maui... Palm trees included. Great breakfast. We are definitely staying here again

Room Tip: The harbour view rooms are the way to go.
