“Cosy escape”
Reviewed March 20, 2013

We arrived late into Dingle, not booked. Were going to stay in a bed and breakfast across the street but no area to 'chill' . Checked out the Benner; beaut bar and lounge areas ...... and warm! Reasonably priced, excellent service, big rooms. Central location, great place,would definitely stay again

I stayed here for a night on a work trip in February. Given it was midweek and the time of year it was very quiet. My room was very well appointed and comfortable. The hotel itself is fine and convenient for wandering around Dingle. Food was OK but nothing spectacular. All in all a reasonable place if you are looking for somewhere to stay in Dingle.

Stayed here for 2 nights with a group of friends for weekend break in Dingle. The rooms were lovely, spacious and clean. The staff here are amazing, all so friendly, from check in to check out and the location was brilliant, right in the middle of things but at the same time a nice quiet hotel. I would definitely stay here again.

Room Tip: I had a room on the first floor at the back and it was nice and quiet.

The atmosphere was very nice and appealing. The restraunt was very clean. The food however left much to be desired. The steak burgers were incredibly dry and over cooked. Service was good but rushed. The steak also was very chewy and dry. I would not recommend or visit again.

Thank you for your review. I'm sorry you didn't enjoy your meal in Mrs Benners Bar. If you would like to contact me directly at the hotel I would be very interested in hearing any further comments you could give me about your experience. We pride ourselves in the quality of our entire experience so although you mention some positive comments my concern is that in your case our Hotel didn't live up to the usual high standards that the majority of our customers enjoy. I would appreciate if you could find the time to contact me so I can personally address the issues you have mentioned.

Arrived at the Dingle Benner Hotel without reservations and obtained a B & B rate of 110 Euros. This hotel was exactly how I had imagined an Irish hotel to be. Loved the comfortable, homey, antique decor everywhere from the lobby, bar/restaurant, and tucked away sitting areas. All of the staff were extremely helpful, friendly, and went above normal duty to ensure we were taken care of. The rooms were very generous sized as well as the bathrooms. Decor was cozy and comfortable. The only drawback would be that wifi was only available in the hotel lobby/sitting areas. But, that was not a huge issue.
We had dinner in the restaurant/bar and it was absolutely phenomenal!! Started with the crab appetizer, which was served in a cream sauce. Absolutely delectable! Almond crusted fish, duck with a cherry sauce, seafood chowder, and chicken supreme were our entree's and everything was prepared exceptional! Breakfast the next morning was another treat. The choice of fish of the day was excellent! Great hotel that I will have on my list of places to return in Ireland!!

I stayed here on New Year's Eve and I cannot say how wonderful my stay was. All the staff (especially Aisling) were so friendly and helpful and absolutely nothing was too much trouble. Will definitely be back again next year.

We spent three days in Benners in January and enjoyed every minute of our stay in this beautiful part of Ireland. The weather was great for some days, lashed rain for one, but it didn't matter. The staff are friendly, welcoming and helpful. The room was comfortable and well appointed with lots of space to sit around. We ate in the hotel most of the time, mainly because it was so good, and a lot of other restaurants are closed at this time of year. The location on the main street is excellent, although the way to the car park is incredibly convoluted. Anyone going there should remember the entrance is on the same lane as the cinema. Free wifi is available only in the lobby area, and not in the rooms, but that was ok if you just want to check email. It might be a problem for business travellers. I'd like to congratulate the management and staff on making our stay so comfortable and enjoyable.
