This was our second stay at this B&B in Dingle. The first was in 2008. We were so impressed 5 years ago, that it was no question where we would stay in Dingle this time around. We were not disappointed. Julie and Joe were as wonderful as we remembered them. Very helpful with travel advice and very gracious. The accommodations...

If you are Dingle, stay here if you can. They only have 3 rooms---so I'm sure it'll be touch. It's just a block away from the city center area and their home overlooks the penninsula. The rooms are big, clean---and if you're lucky you'll get the one with the view! Joe and Julie area GREAT. They were friendly, chatty and...

We recently stayed 2 nights at Julie and Joe's fantastic B&B. They were brilliant hosts who couldn't have done more to make us feel comfortable and at home. Their wealth of local knowledge and willingness to share it, was an added bonus to our stay. The room was homely and comfortable and the breakfasts were amazing. Our room looked out...

The best view of Dingle Bay right from your window! Rooms are clean and comfortable. Warm and friendly host family, including the children who were ever so eager to help. They gave us the best local tips, including areas to visit around Dingle. Overall, an excellent stay and highly recommended.

My daughter and I stayed at Julie and Joe's place in Dingle. Situated right on the water, this place was absolutely perfect for us. From the moment we arrived, we were greeted and well taken care of by their teenage daughter who was an absolute sweet heart and very informative about all things Dingle. We had a clean, well appointed...

My wife and friends were in Ireland for just under two weeks and this was the best B+B that we experienced. The accommodations were the cleanest of all places we stayed, there was a wonderful seaside view from our room, the breakfast was great, and the hosts (Julie and Joe) were exceptionally friendly and helpful! Hope to visit again!

...and we found: a room with seaview, lovely furnished with that feeling for small details - and a fantastic hospitality from our hosts Julie and Joe. The breakfast was magnificent (we enjoyed the rest of cheese and fruit salad travelling back to Dublin by train!) and also the talk sitting on the big table in the middle of the kitchen....
