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.

My husband and I stayed here over six years ago for a Wedding in the near by hotel and we just had to come back as Maggie is the ultimate host and as for her home it’s just the most perfect base to explore Dingle from, you are right in the heart of the town, however it’s so perfectly located that it’s just so ‘peaceful’ with views to die for of the harbour and pretty much surrounded by sea and scenic landscape all round... definitely the best placed B&B in Dingle. This time we booked with our children and couldn’t have wished for a better spot, we were concerned that a B&B may be awkward with them being relatively young and how that may work, however Maggie had such a lovely way with our two that we were put at ease immediately... we all felt so welcome from the minute we we arrived at Emlagh Lodge... overall Maggie couldn’t have made us feel more at home.
As for the room it was beautiful with everything you could want for, spotless and spectacular views from every window along with the bathroom!
Breakfast was unreal with Maggie going above and beyond with an extensive menu as good as you would get in any 5 Star establishment, had to ask her was she a chef it was that good.
Attention to detail all round was top class.
We’ve booked for next May already we had such a lovely stay.

We loved the location, easy walk into town and we stayed in Seaview room with beautiful scenery right out our windows (sea and fields of cows). Room was clean. Overall enjoyed our stay at Emlagh Lodge!

We couldn't believe the beauty of this boutique B&B and the location right on the Dingle Bay.; it has attractive decor and is clean in every detail. Maggie is a wonderful host and a marvel of activity. We had a very comfortable room (the Bay view). The hotel is nicely situated to be a 5 minute walking distance into the Dingle village but is very, very quiet. We were on a 1 week long hiking trip around the Dingle Bay and stayed here 2 nights. If we were to do it again, we would stay here longer and take taxis to the start of various hikes. The breakfasts were so exquisitely prepared and presented. This B&B is a gem!

Phoned up Emlagh Lodge on 2/08/2020 for to stay for two nights with my wife.I was really looking forward to going due to the location of the B/B .Maggie answered the phone.She was bordering on being obsessed on the phone call that she would not be in the house from 3 to 6 and not overly friendly.I said I lived in Limerick and that I would arrive before or after these times and it would not be a problem at all.She said she had a room available.I said ok would phone her back to confirm the booking.Phoned her back a second time a few minutes later to confirm that breakfast was included in the price as some B/B in Dingle are not doing breakfast now due to Covid. She said very directly yes of course this is a B/B and breakfast is included.Then Checked with my wife to see if this booking was OK and my wife said to book it.Phoned Maggie again except this time the phone started ringing and was then cut off.Phoned 4 more times and again it rang and was cut off.Got no return phone call from Maggie or message so still dont know whats wrong.
I normally stay in hotels and think I know why now.Maggie was at no time rude to me but she needs to improve on her phone manner.If she had any doubts about giving me a room she could of at least asked more probing questions.
Disappointing

Response from Maggie O Flaherty, Owner at Emlagh Lodge
Responded 4 Aug 2020
I am very sorry that there seems to be some confusion about this post. I hope this clears it up? Yes John called making an enquiry about a possible booking for two nights around 11.30 am on Sunday August 2nd of the Bank Holiday weekend. I had a room available due to online booking cancellations because of Covid19. I had a few calls previous from other potential guests looking for a room and they ask what the rates are? They say they will call back and don't. John asked me rates called back shortly afterwards the call lasted 11 seconds. Do you do breakfast? I replied yes we are a bed and breakfast. He hung up so I went about my work. I received another call in between his calls and when he called me back I was on another phone call which confirmed the booking. I was then checking in a guest upstairs when my phone rang again downstairs. So I missed two calls from John not four. We get many calls from different numbers and it's hard to identify all numbers. As the room was booked and he did not ring back I thought no more about it. So it appears that there has been a misunderstanding.

This place is AMAZING! Maggie was so wonderful. She was so accommodating and absolutely hilarious. The house was spotlessly clean and the breakfast was delicious. Our family of 7 all agreed that this was our favorite place of the 10 we stayed in 14 nights in Ireland and by far the best breakfast! I recommend Maggie to anyone heading to Dingle, hands down!

The Emlagh Lodge is a gem on the Dingle Peninsula. Maggie is a wonderful host who goes out of her way to make you comfortable and feel welcome. Her breakfast is delicious and of gourmet quality. The house is stunning, sitting right on the water. Every window in our room had a breathtaking view. The location is perfect and within walking distance to all the shops and pubs in Dingle. I can't say enough about this B&B. The price is more than reasonable for all that you receive. It is simply magical and does not disappoint. We will definitely be back.

My wife & I had a wonderful opportunity to spend a few days in Dingle, Ireland & were just blown away by the beauty, warm & gracious Town folk, & plenty of fine restaurants & pubs for music.
We stayed at the Emlaghh Lodge & it was amazing. Our room was comfortable & well appointed. The property is beautiful, overlooks the Dingle Bay. The lodge is located very close to Town & an easy walk to Dingle. For my wife & I one high light of our stay at Emlagh Lodge was Rosie the greeter cat. Rosie does a fine job providing a warm greeting upon arrival & always happy to welcome you back after a day of exploring. Beautiful property.

Firstly, Dingle is great. The location of this B&B was perfect for getting to and from town and was wonderfully comfortable. The food was always great, the rooms were perfectly clean and quiet as well. Couldn’t have picked a better place to stay when my family stayed here in July of 2018. We still talk about when we stayed there!

We have nothing but high praises for Emlagh Lodge B & B. Our host, Maggie, was incredibly accommodating in every way. The complete panoramic views are spectacular. The room was immaculate and comfortable - including the panoramic view that came with it.
The breakfast was out of this world wonderful. Every single item was perfect.
There is a short, beautiful walking path to the town of Dingle and along the waterway.
We travel the world and this place goes to the top of the list for perfection.
Though we only stayed one night, I highly recommend at least 2.

Our host,Maggie was wonderful! Her attention to detail, amazing. Our room was immaculate and had a gorgeous view of Dingle Harbor and the surrounding countryside. It was quiet and a close walk to town. Maggie’s breakfasts were so delicious and well presented, I could have stayed there forever. She was very informative on the things to do and see locally. Maggie was delightful and so easy to talk to! And if you like a firm bed, this is your place.

Hello and thank you for your query. Yes we have hairdryers in our rooms. If you have any further queries can you please contact me directly by email rather than on tripadvisor as I very rarely visit this site and would not be aware of any notifications on it. This site is a review site and not really a means of contacting your host directly. Kind regards, Maggie.

Good morning and greetings from sunny Dingle. On occasion you can see the dolphin from the south facing bedroom windows but you do need to take a boat trip or the coastal walk along the harbor to the mouth of the Bay where he swims. He very rarely comes in by the pier. The boat trips run on the hour daily weather permitting of course and the walk takes about 25 minutes to the mouth of the harbor.
