Phil and Michael Brosnan have a cozy B&B with some great views of the bay right out the front door. Phil was gracious enough to pick us at a local pub after our days route on the Dingle Way Trail. She was also kind enough to drop us off at the start of our Glin North leg the next morning. She offered very helpful information concerning the trail features. To top it all off she was the one who transported our gear to the next B&B on our journey! Imeall na Mara was my wife's favorite stop on our 12 day journey on the Dingle Way. There was a special effort to have extra amenities available like shampoo, conditioner, soap and, for us Americans a face cloth also known to us as a wash cloth. The room was clean and very comfortable with a nice view of the harbor/bay. Breakfast was superior to many other B&Bs we visited... the crowning glory was the plate of warm homemade bread pudding that was brought to our table. Thank you Brosnans for a delightful experience and to Hillwalk Tours for the booking!

This B&B is beautiful and very welcoming.The hostess is very knowledgeable of the area, especially if you are hiking the Dingle Way. It was a real treat, after a wet day of hiking, to have tea in the sunroom and be surprised with a beautiful creampuff!

We stayed at Imeall Na Mara for one night on a recent visit to the Dingle peninsula, the house, the hospitality, the location, the breakfast and the value were all excellent. I would recommend this to anyone. Thank you Phil and Michael for this little piece of paradise. Attached photo was taken at the pier.

We stayed for a night and to say this is the most comfortable and welcoming bed and breakfast we have ever stayed in would be an understatement . It’s our second time to stay and we will return everytime we are in west kerry . Phil is a fantastic host , so welcoming to a beautiful house in beautiful Ballydavid .

My husband and I had just done a couple of nights in a 5 star hotel and headed to this gem in Ballydavid for three nights. It was sooo far superior than our time in the 5 star hotel! Phil welcomed us warmly and showed us to our beautiful room with large ensuite. The room was scrupulously clean and had the added benefit of seating at the window with great views. We slept so well on the extra large double. The breakfast was a major highlight. Large selection on the menu and all quite delicious with Phil's sister bringing us an extra treat of 'bread and butter pudding'. On our return each day, Phil always enquired if we would like a cuppa.... so nice of her. Wishing Phil and Michael continued success with their superb B & B. Angela and Pat.

We were given a very warm welcome (as Gaeilge), a beautiful room and an excellent breakfast. A one-minute walk to a lovely small beach for a quick swim. A pub serving food (lots of outdoor tables) nearby. The B&B was well equipped for Covid protection requirements.

just spent 4 days in Phils lovely bed and breakfast ,everything was wonderful,great room with a lovely sea view ,very comfortable bed and shower with great pressure.Tea and coffee making facilities in you room and a tv also .The room as indeed the whole house was spotless Breakfast was better than most 5 star hotels with a menu to choose from and served by a lovely lady.There was always some extra treat at breakfast ,phil is an amazing cook and we sampled her carrot cake and banana bread both to die for.But without a doubt the biggest asset in this establishment is Phil herself,she is always there for a chat and wants to make sure all her guests know where to go in dingle for dinner etc.We had just come from a five star hotel in west cork and it could not hold a candle to Imeall na Mara it is the best place to stay on the dingle peninsula and right in the village of Ballydavid where there is a lovely beach and a great bar overlooking the beach Do not think of missing this gem of a bed and breakfast Continued well earned success to yourself and michael Phil and thanks again for all your kindness during our stay mary and seamus
