We’re just back from an amazing two night stay in a ‘Top of House’ room. The room was excellent, large and had amazing views. The bathroom was also very nice. The house itself is also amazing, with incredible views of the peninsula, and the terrace is the perfect place for a glass of wine as well. Breakfast was potentially the best breakfast we’ve had in a hotel - cooked to order and served with loads of fresh treats. The team was kind enough to bring us prosecco and chocolate cake one morning for my wife’s birthday. The best part about this place is the people and service. The owner John is a pro and was extremely accommodating and welcoming, as were the entire team. The resident dog Jules was also so great! We don’t normally stay in the same place twice; but we will back.

Just returned from a short stay at Pax with my Mum…we were blown away and only wished we could stay longer. All of the reviews here are completely accurate as Pax Guest House is easily the best guesthouse I have ever experienced. I really appreciate the extra steps that have been taken here as it is a pleasure to receive the amazing service which one is paying for. John works tirelessly to ensure guests are made to feel comfortable. All of the staff are so kind and welcoming. The guest house is so tastefully decorated with amazing artwork and quirky interiors. Jules the dog contributes to the homely feeling which one inevitably experiences from the moment one enters the front door. The location is ideal…just a stones throw from the town centre, views are spectacular, everything is spotlessly clean and I barely have the words to describe breakfast as the quality, choice and attention to detail are truly remarkable. Everything is freshly cooked and delicious and the choices are varied and interesting. We simply couldn’t resist over-indulging when it came to the home-baked array of cakes, breads and scones!! This spot is not to be missed if one is visiting Dingle. Thanks to John and all the team as you are doing an amazing job.

What can I say but Pax House is an absolute gem! We had the pleasure of staying with John and his lovey staff - plus gorgeous doggy Jules for 3 nights and it was just fabulous. Our room, the Cedar room, had magnificent sea views, a little private balcony and a wonderful bathroom with gorgeous free standing bath. There was every conceivable item that you would/ could have needed for your stay to hand and the drawing room is absolutely beautiful full of wonderful books and gorgeous knick knacks. But the icing on the cake was the truly amazing breakfast menu, I have never seen the like before. Everything was scrumptious and the presentation is 7 star. Do yourself a favour and book a stay, you will not be disappointed, we thought it was the lovelies place we have ever stayed and can't wait to go back. Thanks John

John, the owner, has worked around the world in top class hotels. He has brought back the best in hospitality to his own place. He is very welcoming and unobtrusive. The place is large enough that you have privacy. The rooms are 5 star. the artwork throughout is stunning. And he makes a breakfast that is a culinary experience.

This guest house is a total gem of a find in Dingle. From check in to departure, John is so welcoming and obliging. The place is spotlessly clean and the breakfast was exceptional- we didn't need lunch after it and they also provided a glass of cava as we were celebrating our dad's 50th. A short 10 min walk from the village- this spot is the perfect base for your time spent exploring Kerry.
