“Outstanding by any standards”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 8, 2013

This is a wonderful B & B, situated in the quiet picturesque town of Annascaul near Dingle. Everything about this accommodation is admirable. The rooms are spacious and comfortable, the breakfast was excellent and the proprietor (Brian) was most helpful and obliging. The building has a certain charm which you won't get in bigger hotels etc and a visit to the local pubs is very worthwhile. Finally one has to wonder how the likes of these businesses manage to survive because they give exceptional value for money. Whether on holiday in the Dingle area or on business in this region the Old Anchor Inn is definitely the place to stay. I could find no fault whatever here.

After driving through the country staying at the Old Anchor was a dream come true! We were welcomed by the owners with drinks and homemade pizza. They have a beautiful sitting room with a toasty fire, and big screen tv with plenty of DVD's to chose from! The owners were so welcoming and friendly. They helped us plan our trip for the next day seeing some beautiful sites we would have missed otherwise! Rooms were comfy and quiet. Shower was small but hot and everything worked out great! Thanks again Brian and Biatta!

Room Tip: Our room was in the back but was lovely!

This was the best B&B we stopped at on our road trip, Annascaul is a lovely little village - very quiet but full of charm! Brian & Beata were so lovely to us and couldn't have done anything more to make us feel at home. We arrived after a long day of travelling so settled down in their lounge with a warm fire and Brian even went next door to get us a pint of Guiness!! Amazing service or what?? The room was lovely, very clean and had everything we needed (they even made sure the heating was turned on prior to our arrival as it was so cold and checked they were warm enough for us before we checked it!) - the blankets on the bed were lovely and cosy too! Breakfast was an amazing variety of food - fruit, yoghurt, bread and an Irish breakfast with all the trimmings. We would recommend for everyone to come and stay with them as their hospitality was perfect! Thanks for an amazing stay.

I don't think I can justify just how good this B&B is.
My friend and I were greeted warmly and with great politeness and were immediately made feel welcome. Something which I sometimes feel lacking in large hotels.
I forgot something in the hotel and they rang me within the hour of my check-out and had everything waiting for me.
I won't hesitate to recommend them to friends or family and will be my first choice the next time I am in Co. Kerry.

Brian and Beata run a stunning B&B in the beautiful village of Annascaul. The accomodations are superb. I'm not a great sleeper but was so comfortable there I slept for almost seven hours for the first time in forever. The comforters are lovely. The breakfast in the morning is to die for. Local meats and fantastic brown bread. There are also several very nice pubs within a ten meter walk and it is a short, beautiful drive into Dingle and on to Slea Head. I wouldn't hesitate to stay here instead of the much busier and more tourist driven area around Dingle. Both Brian and Beata were very helpful in helping to plan out the rest of our visit and saved us time and hassle suggesting the ferry from Tarbert. Come stay here, without a doubt!

Room Tip: All of the rooms are clean and cheerful. The mattresses were lovely and the view from the front of...

Stayed here for one night whilst visiting The South Pole Inn. Great service and food. B&B is clean and tidy.
The place to stay if you visiting this part of Ireland. Ideally located for taking a trips out around the Dingle Peninsular.
