Stayed last Saturday night, its is a lovely hotel, our room was very big and even though it was a very warm day, once we left the window open it was very airy and comfortable in the room. There was a double and 2 single beds, and still loads of room to move around. The room and bathroom were spotless. The breakfast was lovely. The receptionist, who perhaps may be the owner or manageress was lovely and very helpful. I needed to use the internet and she allowed me use the computer at reception even though she was going to be busy with people checking out. It was lovely to hear Irish being spoken around us. All in all a lovely hotel to stay in and I look forward to a return visit.

Arrived at the village not expecting to find such a lovely place to stay. The room (no.17) was large bright and airy, overlooking the bay. My requests are always for a view and a bath and I got both. All the staff were friendly and efficient. Sadly, we are unlikely to pass that way again but I can recommend it wholeheartedly.

We stayed here for one night and it was great! The front desk guy/bartender was so nice and helpful, very friendly. The room was pretty spacious and was one of the few places that had a bathtub and shower. It was clean and comfortable. The best part of it was the pub downstairs, the food was delicious and reasonable priced and had a great atmosphere. Next time if we're in Ballyferriter we would definitely stay there again!

Stayed one night B&B, booked it at the last minute at a very reasonable rate and was pleasantly surprised by how big and clean the rooms were. Only 3 miles from a beautiful beach, close to the golf course and close enough to Dingle without being too close so it's lovely and quiet out there.
Nice breakfast in the morning, couldn't find one thong to complain about if I tried.
Will definitely be back.

I only stopped in to the hotel for lunch, but was impressed by the interior hotel. The pub was done over it appeared in recent years, and was very welcoming. The food was very good, but fell in love with the bartender, she was from Holland, and her accent and the curve of her lips when speaking sent me into a "Dingle Spin ". I love the Dingle peninsula, and Ballyferriter should be pleased having a hotel like this one in town. I would go back, but would it be for the Hotel?

Room Tip: When calling for reservation, ask them what their most popular room is!

this was our 3rd stay here. It really feels like we are coming home. When you open the door to the inn, you are greeted like a long lost friend. The staff is second to none and the manager is fabulous. there is plenty of activity in the village of Ballyferriter without the activity I'm staying in Dingle. the views are breathtaking and it is in excellent place to stay for hikers.
