Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Got delayed (arrived 9.45pm) and owner was not very pleasant about it. There was no mention of needing to be there by a certain time when booking. We were told several times they could have given our room away. This is despite the fact that I called earlier in the day to confirm the booking and say it would be an evening arrival. It was rather unpleasant to be told we could have been left stranded in Dingle on a Bank Holiday weekend after driving for several hours. We missed a couple of calls (2 rather than the alleged 4) when driving but called back as soon as we saw them to say we were on our way. Explained reason for delay when we got there however owner laboured the point. Next morning he made point of saying they needed the room again on our way up from breakfast even though we assume checkout would have been 12pm. We also got a knock on the door. Other owner was also rather cold next morning and we felt it was for the above reason. The whole attitude seemed a bit OTT for the "crime" and was shortsighted given we were mostly Irish (2 out of the 3 of us) and likely to return (we visit Dingle 2/3 times a year). Smell of fry in morning was overbearing in our room above. Breakfast room was a bit cramped, breakfast was nice though. Nice B&B when it came to bedroom, lounge and location however was not very welcoming. All of this was in front of an overseas friend with us on their first trip to Ireland and it was their only experience of an Irish B&B while they were here.

While parking my car in the official carpark of the guesthouse, I inadvertently hit a flowerpot, breaking it. . I informed the owner of the guesthouse the following morning. Without a moments hesitation he said he would add 20Euros to my bill which I duly paid. I might add that the pots should not have been there in the first place, as the parking was very tight.

My wife and I stayed here as part of a Hillwalk Tours package for the Dingle Way. The room was excellent, the bathroom was amazing, and the proximity to the Dingle Way and downtown Dingle made this a great location.

In addition, the staff was extremely kind and accommodating. Be sure you ask about the sturgeon story...

We highly recommend this B&B!

Can I give more than five stars?

I stayed at this B&B during what was supposed to be a hiking trip along the Dingle Way. Unfortunately, I ended up injuring my ankle on the way to Dingle. Melanie and John and everyone at Brosnans' were incredible. They took me to the local clinic, and then made sure I got to the hospital, John even called check on me that evening. I was traveling alone and they took me in hand made sure I was taken care of. I was taken care of like family.

And this was on top of a large, comfortable room with beautiful views and a delicious breakfast. Highly recommended.

Brosnans' was one of the B&Bs we were guests of as part of Hillwalk Tours. Melanie warmly greeted us and John is a character, entertaining with a story or a joke while serving breakfast in the morning. What a great way to start our day. Our room was very spacious, more than we actually needed. The B&B is located near the water and an easy walk to everything.

Staying at Brosnan’s was one of the high points of our trip. John and his daughter Melanie made us feel like family. And be sure to ask John to relate his “fish story.” The comfortable house is just a few blocks from everything in Dingle and breakfast is delicious.

We stayed here on our first night of our Dingle Way Hike. It is on a quiet street, but very walkable to everything Dingle has to offer. Our room was large, clean and comfortable. The bathroom was in very nice condition and the living area was also excellent. Melanie greeted us when we arrived, answered all our questions we had and gave us suggestions for dinner, shopping and pubs. She was wonderful! She also made an outstanding breakfast the next morning before we left. John was also in and out answering questions and conversing with all the guests. It was one of 8 Bed and Breakfasts that we were guests in as part of Hillwalk Tours hiking the Dingle Way and was definitely one of the better ones. I would definitely recommend anyone to stay here.

We stayed in Brosnan's B&B while hiking the Dingle Peninsula. Our room was huge, clean and welcoming. Our bed was a little too soft which aggravated by back issues (though the 14 mile hike the day before didn't help much either). The hosts were simply lovely and talking with John the following morning and listening to his Irish stories made the experience a 5 star in our book. There's nothing like Irish hospitality. Breakfast was delicious and we wished we would have had more time here. The location is perfect as it's right by the harbor. Would definitely stay here again.

Brosnan's was our first B&B for a 5 week trip in Ireland. And it was a great start - this family run place is very welcoming and comfortable with excellent breakfasts. We arrived there after a very long day of travel and were welcomed with tea and a very comfortable and large room. We spent 4 days there exploring the Dingle area. The B&B is very convenient to town but on a quiet side street. The family was very helpful with local information and recommendations.
