We recently returned from hiking the Dingle Way and want to let other travelers know how much we enjoyed our stay at An Riasc Bed and Breakfast. Denise and Dearmond were delightful and helpful hosts who shared about themselves and local area life. The cheese board and salads made a great dinner. Plus the bottle of wine we shared was the best red of our trip. The rural farm area is beautiful.

I first discovered this gem in August 2020 when myself and my daughter took a road trip once Covid-19 restrictions allowed...we stayed at An Riasc for one night and it was just gorgeous. Denise welcomed us in and was a fountain of knowledge on things to do in the area and dinner recommendations. The view of the Three Sisters from our bedroom window was so lovely and the breakfast we were served was the cherry on top! So when it came to planning some trips around Ireland this year I had to include a return trip to Dingle. This time I brought himself and we stayed for two nights! Again, Denise was so warm and welcoming upon our arrival. We had planned on getting a taxi into town for dinner and drinks on our first night but Denise and her husband offered to drop us as they were headed that direction. Their hospitality even extended to getting in touch to see if we wanted a lift home when they were finished!! Such a lovely touch. The location for some may seem a little too far out of town..if you consider 10 minutes drive too far out of town...but we loved being totally immersed in the landscape. The cleanliness, comfort, location and service are second to none. The decor is beautiful and the breakfast is as good if not better than any top hotel. Denise's homemade treats are another bonus. I am already looking for an excuse to book a third visit!! Do yourself a favour and stay at An Riasc!!

This fabulous rural retreat is set between mountain and coast with fabulous views and wonderful beaches. The old world farmhouse charm with quirky painted furniture and fabulous bed and linens is a real boutique experience. Denise met us with homemade lemonade and cake which we enjoyed in the very pretty garden. It set the tone for our stay. The breakfast was a fabulous selection of the finest local produce and you can see Denise treats this business as a labour of love. While we were there Denise was interviewed by the times as her reputation is growing. My advice- grab it if you can!

I cannot recommend this B&B enough it is absolutely stunning Denise and her family are so welcoming. Our bedroom was spotless and the breakfast was the best I've ever had. The atmosphere in the house was so warm. This is my 3rd year in a row staying at this B&B and I think that says it all. its surroundings is so peaceful and tranquil. it certainly is a little gem in the kingdom.

An Riasc is a great B&B, welcoming, clean, spacious and in the middle of a beautiful countryside. The bedroom had everything we needed including a giant bed and windows overlooking the nearby mountains and en-suite bathroom with a shower, all well furnished and clean. The breakfast was tasty, with decent portions and locally sourced food. Denise proved to be not only a warm host, but also a great source of local knowledge. We can recommend An Riasc to everyone who wants to visit the Dingle Peninsula.

I can not recommend this b&b enough the warm welcome from Denise upon booking, arrival and right through to our departure was second to none. The rooms are so fresh, clean and beautifully decorated with stunning views(you can see the view from my bed in the 1st picture). Denise offers beautiful breakfast with freshly squeezed orange juice and special each day, I choose to go for the special each morning and it definitely didn’t disappoint. Denise also give some great food recommendations and also the best things to do in the local area. If you visit Dingle You can’t go wrong with An Riasc.

Stayed here while walking part of the Dingle way. Beautiful house and bedroom. Best breakfast I have ever had in a B&B. Denise was just fantastic, gave me food and tea in the evening and sunscreen for my hike up Mount Brandon! Overall, a great experience in a stunning location.
