Garvey's Farmhouse
Certificate of Excellence

What a fun B & B. A real working farm. The views were excellent, the rooms were comfortable and the Irish breakfast, a delight. Our host, Joan, was very diligent in making sure our visit was grand. If in Ireland again, would stay at Garvey's.

The first thing that struck us as we pulled up was the quite stunning view from the front of the farmhouse out over the Dingle peninsula. The rooms were clean and comfortable and Joan was the perfect host, who was able to answer all our questions about the surrounding area.
Breakfast was superb and really set us up for the day. Would certainly book up at Garvey's again if visting this amazing part of Ireland.

I was sooo happy to have stayed at the Garvey;s house. Everything was great from communication for booking all the way to our warm welcome. Joan was so warm and pleasant. We were so lucky to have arrived before all the other guests that we were the only guest on our first night. I had a chance to view the other rooms in the house and I must say I love the view from ours. Just outside our window we can see the Garvey's cattle. In the morning we were woken up by the moos of the cows. We were on the 2nd floor with 2 double beds and a large ensuite bath. The breakfast room was well furnished and had a view of the meadow. The breakfast was tasty and plenty. Irish breakfast, smoked salmon, and smoked mackarel were our choices during our stay and itwas delicious! The location to some may be too out of the way, but to me it was just perfect. If you have a car, the drive to Dingle center town maybe a good 20 min. But during our stay we focused on the country side and only drove to town once forO'flaherty pub. There is a celtic museum across the street from the farm. Their neighbor has a donkey that walks up to anyone that pays a visit. There is beach access just a few minutes away with viewings of more cows along the way. Stay here. You wont be dissapointed.

Comfortable, welcoming and the perfect spot to see more of the Dingle peninsula. Joan helped me to find places to eat and to listen to music. The room was clean and cozy, the shower was hot and the breakfast set me up for the day! Whether you want to explore the town of Dingle or go further out towards the Blaskets and around to Ballyferriter and the Gallarus Oratory, this is the place!

Owners are very friendly and helpful. They have been in the city for years and with full knowledge too answer your travel questions. We arrived quite late and they were still waiting for us with warm welcome. Tom explained the full process of milking, showed us the new-born cow. Playing with their energetic dog is quite tired:)

When we arrived at the farmhouse we had been hiking for a while in the rain and it was really cold and we were starving. The owner invited us in and was very warm and kind. She offered to make us tea and coffee and brought us cake. She gave us advice on where to eat and visit and even offered to have her son drive us to the nearby pub since he was going to pass it by on his way to another town. She also offered to drop off our backpacks to our next B&B and drop us off about a mile away to give us a head start on our hike since she said it was prettier about a mile out for just a small fee, it was definitely cheaper than taking a cab. The breakfast was great and she has a nice selection to choose from on the menu. We would definitely stay there the next time we're in the area!

Arrived on the Dingle Penninsula and knew we were right in booking 2 nights... could have spent more! Joan, our hostess, helped us with our plans for dinner and drive/walk the following day. We were treated to a terrific Irish Breakfast and given suggestions for dinner. Loved our time on the peninsula!

Room Tip: Upstairs room facing the water was lovely!
