It's no secret that the Dingle Peninsula is blessed with some of the most scenic coastline in Ireland and all of Europe. If coming to Ireland, this is an experience with charm and breathtaking beauty that deserves a few days or more. So grateful to find a charming B&B that, literally, puts guests on the sea. Reading other glowing reviews and just want to bask in it - what an amazing experience!
My wife and I were hoping to book one of the seaside suites but timing with those booked had us tucked away in a quiet but spacious nook on the other side of the property. We are a stickler for a cozy and comfortable bed and am surprised we ever woke up - when we did there is a glorious setting over the Dingle bay and breakfast suited to our requests by one of the warmest hosts we've ever met, Marianne. Some people were checking out downstairs so we had a peek and, if you can time it, is pretty much the best location you can find anywhere on the peninsula. Writers and artists will be in heaven! What we loved most is that we could have peace and quiet on the seafront but be, literally, only a 5 minute walk to the village.
On a personal note, I'm not the biggest B&B guy on the planet and love my privacy but this cottage struck the perfect balance. We felt completely unplugged from our world but knew they were there with a question or request for Irish music or intimate place for dinner.
This is our first trip advisor review of a hotel(or anything!). When you have an experience like we just did with the Cottage it makes you want to share the experience. Good luck and safe travels!
