We stayed at Gleann Dearg after a long day of hiking the Dingle Way in the rain and through lots of sheep farms in the mountain. We were tired and cold. Kristen greeted us at the door with a smile and heat! She was told at the last minute that dinner was included in our stay and she had to run out at the last minute to buy and make dinner (We were the only ones booked for the night but some other hikers checked in after dinner)-It was one of the best meals we had in Ireland! It was a cold rainy night with cards being played by the fire. The rooms were clean and quaint. Not much of a nightlife in Dunquin but Gleann Dearg was the quiet restful night we needed.
