Nice guest house in a great location. Mary and Jim were great host and took great care of us. It was clean and plenty of food available. Nice patio however the weather was not warm enough to enjoy. Spent a night here and really enjoyed our stay.

Just a short I impromptu trip to Dingle led me to this great B&B. Mary and Jim could not have been more hospitable and accommodating. Our place was clean, cozy and decorated beautifully, not to mention all of the wonderful breakfast accommodations that were there waiting. This place was wonderful and hope to return again one day.

The Captain's House is central in Dingle so you don't have to crawl far after a night in the pubs. Its an old guest house that has well-worn charm. They stock your room with essentials for the kitchen and everything is in working order. The proprietors are wonderful and "the Captain" was a career Royal Navy Officer and and a...

We've traveled to many places over many years and have seldom come across accommodations and hosts that were this exceptional. First of all, Mary and Jim Milhench will make you feel part of the family and will do anything to make you feel comfortable. We were surprised and delighted that, when our two-room suite wasn't available for our full stay,...

I am not a B&B person, so this place was perfect. All the joys of home along with the privacy. Jim and Mary are great hosts who are there for anything you need, but you'll have your own kitchen (nicely stocked BTW) and no shared meals. I can't wait to return!

We felt like this looked better on Trip Advisor than it actually was. We had the Inishowen suite on the ground floor, although you have to go up and then down a short set of stairs to get there. Checking in was a bit of a circus, with the owner's kids running around and through us, demanding attention for everything...

During our stay in Ireland, this was the only real disappointment. This is a rather expensive place to stay and what it is offering does not warrant its steep price. We stayed in the self-catering annex to the Captain's House, yet on a B&B basis. The room smells rather musty and my son immediately wanted to flee the place. It...

We loved the Captain's House so very much! We were pleasantly surprised after booking through email to find that we had a full apartment with a living room, kitchen, and a patio outside. We enjoyed being able to wash some clothes, cook breakfast, and soak in a great bath. It was very homey and the beds were incredibly comfortable! The...

What a lovely place to stay. We had the 3 bedroom apartment and with a bathroom in every bedroom we could get ready in the morning in a hurry. Jim and his wife are delightful and looked after us to no end. Highly recommend.

My wife and I stayed here on our honeymoon tour of the west coast and it is utterly delightful. Nicely located on a quiet lane in the centre of Dingle, we stayed in the Fanad suite, a cosy self catered apartment on two floors with a spiral staircase up to the bedroom. It's a very comfortable home away from home...
