The Lantern Townhouse
Ranked #26 of 75 Dingle B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed September 17, 2013

The Lantern Townhouse has friendly staff and is located in the town center-an easy walk to the pubs and other attractions that beautiful Dingle has to offer. The breakfast, though basic (eggs, salmon, sausage, white/black pudding, veggies) is quite delicious and can fill you up for the whole day. The rooms are not the biggest but they fit the bill if you're using the hotel to travel. Don't be afraid to pick the front desk's advice on what to do in this beautiful town-there are many hidden gems to explore during the day and night and the Lantern Townhouse is a great gateway. We chose the Townhouse because of the positive and helpful vibe the staff radiated and would suggest the place to future travelers for similar reasons.

We checked in for one night and stayed for three. Friendly, efficient staff made us feel very welcome. Our room was spacious, well appointed and looked out onto the Main Street. The town was quiet at night so noise was never an issue. Free parking outside the front door on the main street was a bonus. This is a comfortable place to stay, clean and well maintained, the decor suits the building and I personally would choose to stay here again hopefully in the near future. It is located within walking distance of everything in Dingle town. Thank you for making my first visit to Dingle so enjoyable.

Excellent location on the main street in Dingle. Everything went very smoothly, staff was very helpful. Room was nice, spacious and had a little view out the back. Enjoyed the breakfast very much, there was a buffet with yogurt, bread, meat and cheese; in addition to a menu to order from.
Other than the bathroom having a slightly funky smell to it, it was really a lovely experience.

Room Tip: the bathroom was a bit outdated, I'm not sure if there are any rooms that are more up to date bu...

This B&B is located on the main street of Dingle. This is a town you don't want to be driving around a lot so it was wonderful to be able to walk to dinner or the pub. The owner was extremely kind. We needed to change our plans at our next destination and he was able to contact antoher B&B and set up our reservation. The room and bathroom were very clean. Breakfast was lovely as well.

We checked in and received a warm welcome, great recommendations for dinner, and had no problems parking. Thomas looked up ferry times for us, helped with directions, and was wonderful. The breakfast was plentiful and delicious. Great location, walkable to tons of places. Comfortable beds, great warm showers ensuite.

we stayed here with our grandson for just one night but would have stayed longer if possible.We had a triple room which was perfect with a double and a single bed and a beautiful en suite bathroom.Breakfast was lovely and cooked to order not your usual fry up but a good selection of items such as poached eggs with smoked salmon or waffles with fresh fruit.Thomas our host was very friendly and helpful with good local knowledge.The Lantern is situated in a prime spot on the main street close to all amenities.

We had 2 families that traveled together, 4 adults and 4 kids. Our plan was to stay in Dingle for 2 nights. We loved it so much that we extended our stay. Can't thank the Lantern Townhouse enough for making the last minute arrangements for us to do so. The rooms and bathrooms were spacious. The location of the B&B was perfect-right on the mainstreet. It was easy to shop and sightsee in Dingle during the day and then venture out to the pubs in the evening-all on foot. We hope to get back to Dingle someday and when that happens, we will be booking our stay at The Lantern Townhouse!
