Dunlavin House
Ranked #18 of 75 Dingle B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed March 10, 2014

My daughter and I arrived in Dingle late in the afternoon on a very rainy day in early March. We didn't realize that many B&Bs are not open until later in the month so our search was not as easy as planned. The Dunlavin House (beautiful) was open and Denise, the owner, gave us a very warm welcome. Our room with private bath was immaculate, comfortable,and well equipped. Of course wifi was a plus. Denise was very helpful with recommendations for our stay in Dingle as well as our tour of Dingle Peninsula. Her sitting room was also comfortable and well stocked with travel books of Ireland. Breakfast was excellent with too many choices to list. We loved the location. The views of the bay are gorgeous and it's a 10 minute walk to town. Dingle is very charming but a bit tight so we were glad to stay up the road from town. Denise has a nice carpark right in front of the house. We highly recommend this B&B-definitely one of the favorites of our trip.

Denise was very welcoming and her home was one of the most beautiful we stayed at while on our trip. Breakfast was outstanding and the room was very comfortable. Denise recommended that we take a drive around the peninsula, the view was breathtaking. We highly recommend staying here and hope to be able to come back ourselves.

I recently stayed at Dunlavin House for two nights and had a wonderful stay. Denise was super friendly and made us feel at home. She offered us great recommendations for restaurants and pubs in town and helped us route the next leg of our trip. The room was a good size and the bathroom/shower was huge compared to other B&Bs we stayed at in Ireland. We had a beautiful view of the bay from our room and the bed was very comfortable.The breakfast was excellent with several menu options. The scrambled eggs I had at Dunlavin House are seriously the best eggs I've ever had. The location was great - an easy 10 minute walk into town. We walked to the pubs every night, but took cabs home. I will certainly stay at Dunlavin House during my next visit to Dingle!

It did not take long to feel right at home with Denise's warm welcome, tour and explanations, then leave us to our own visiting, but letting us know she is just a knock away. Very comfortable. Wifi in sitting area, great views from the front or back of the house.....even with the overcast weather we had. Quite comfortable and delicious breakfast. Nice selection of local books in sitting room and Denise was helpful in that area, also. We felt like part of her precious family. Thanks, Denise!

Room Tip: We ended up with twin beds, but still roomy and comfy

Dunlavin House B&B is the perfect place to stay while exploring the picturesque Dingle Peninsula and the scenic beauty of the Ring of Kerry.

You will find find spacious rooms, a real en-suite and a comfortable guest lounge. Your hostess Denise will serve a delicious full Irish braeakfast in the bright and airy conservetory.

Dingle is a great little town with a good selection ofshops, pubs and restaurants just down the road from Dunlaven House.

If you decide to visit this special corner of Ireland, you will not be disappointed!

From the moment we walked in Denise, the owner, made us feel at home. The house is beautiful and the service was fantastic. Denise is such a wonderful host and she genuinely cares about her guests. She suggested places to see and must do's in Dingle, including a great Irish concert at a music shop. I have already recommended Dunlavin House to a couple friends who are planning a trip to Dingle.

Spent a Saturday and Sunday night at Dunlavin. Denise was so kind with recommendations for places to eat, things to see, etc. Even apologetic for some other guests that were a bit loud. Breakfast was great. Room was roomy and had a great view of the ocean. Convenient to town, but not sure I would walk it unless I could get back before dark. Road is not well-lit after dark but the B&B is findable enough. Denise was the kindest and most genuine of our hosts in Ireland. Would stay here again in a heartbeat.

Room Tip: Front-facing room (Room 1) would be a big plus for the view alone.
