O'Neills Bed and Breakfast
Ranked #11 of 75 Dingle B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed July 29, 2013

Dingle Town is quite small, with few streets, so everything is close. I'd gladly visit Dingle Town again! This pleasant, friendly B&B is one block outside the real tourist area, and so what! The room was a bit spare, but the staff members were quite friendly and helpful. I loved the breakfasts. After I was daring enough to choose the smoked salmon for my first breakfast, the hostess suggested I next try her husband's smoked mackerel, caught by him, and then smoked by him at the B&B. What a treat! I ordered it two days in a row. Most enjoyable stay! And the price is very attractive, too.

Room Tip: There are two floors, so if you don't tolerate stairs well, ask for the first floor.

We stayed for one night at O´Neills B&B. The owners are friendly and helpful but I was missing some of the warmth I encountered at other accommodations.
Our room was clean but I wasn´t really comfortable because there was no feeling like I´m at home. The bathroom was very tiny and without a window which can make you feel a bit claustrophobic.
Breakfast was okey but nothing extraordinary (e.g. orange juice from LIDL) and the breakfast room also lacked cosiness.
One positive point was the price: O´Neills B&B was the cheapest accommodation during our stay in Ireland.
One the whole our stay was okey and there was nothing really bad but I would not stay here again because I just didn´t feel at ease.

Thank you for taking the time to review your stay with us. Obviously we are very disappointed that you did not enjoy your stay at O' Neills. Both me and and Mary try our very best to make our guest feel welcome and at home when they come to stay with us and as I think you can see by the majority of our reviews we are pretty successful in doing this. Our bedrooms and dining room are both modern and clean and we have a large breakfast menu where quality produce is very important to us however we are just a small family run business and do not plan to make freshly squeezed orange juice anytime soon. We have hundreds of guests who stay with us each year and leave satisfied with the service we have provided however I am aware that you can not please everyone. We will continue to run our B&B to best of our ability and aim to keep up the high standards that we have set ourselves throughout our last 24 years in business.

We learned about this B & B through a guidebook, and had a wonderful experience here. Our hosts were flexible and service oriented, and the place was clean, attractive, and had all the comforts we needed. While it is not right on the "main drag", it is an easy walk to everything, and nice being in a quieter area. Fabulous breakfasts -and they even made sure that we had something to eat when we had to leave early to catch a 7am bus back to Tralee. You can tell that Mary and Stephen enjoy what they do. We would not hesitate to stay here again.

Room Tip: Any room would be fine, as far as we could see. The street itself is extremely quiet -both day and...

I am a value-seeker and this place offers great value, nice clean modern rooms, friendly and helpful service. It's on a quiet street, but Dingle is tiny so it's a very short walk to the pubs. In fact, the street actually leads directly the main street, it just changes names. Nice breakfasts, good service, clean and comfortable surroundings. Overall, highly recommended. One tip: if you're planning to bike the Slea Head route, make sure you're in great shape and have biked recently. It was a fabulous bike route, but we were in much pain afterward and appreciated the time to relax in the guest house upon our return. (You can drive the route as an alternative to biking).

My husband and I stayed here while visiting from the States. Mary and Stephen are fantastic hosts. The breakfast was delicious - especially the brown bread! The oatmeal with Bailey's Irish Cream was yummy. Our room was large with an en suite bathroom. The room was very clean and had everything you could want. We had a fantastic stay here!

We chose to stay in a B&B for our weekend break as we found the hotels in the area to be outrageously expensive. We didn’t expect too much but were pleasantly surprised by the quality of O’Neill’s B&B. Our room and en suit were very spacious and provided us with all the facilities we would have expected in a 3* hotel. The quality and choice for breakfast was excellent .The personal attention and warm welcome from both Mary & Stephan was the icing on the cake.

Our Dingle area B&B did not work out, so we searched the internet and found O'Neills. We took a chance and knocked on the door. Mary greeted us warmly and gave us her one remaining room. The B&B was very nice and the room was comfortable. The normally quiet street was under construction and all torn up, but it caused little inconvenience and was not noisy while we where there. Mary was very helpful in suggesting places for eating and for traditional Irish pub music. This was a very lucky find and we would recommend it to anyone. My wife is now addicted to Mary's Oatmeal and Irish Cream breakfast.
