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.

First of all location is superb. 5 minute walk to the town yet so far away from the hustle and bustle at the same time. Building itself is gorgeous and so well kept. Inside is amazing. I am a clean freak when away and this place you could eat your food off the floor is Pristine in every part of it. We stayed in the Primrose room its a king room - unreal. Like a big suite. Whopper bed. Stunning views. Seated area. The bathroom has a his and hers area. Gorgeous marble to give the room a modern touch. The bath is divine I had one that night! Breakfast is 10/10. I genuinely fell in love with the place. We are RAGING we had to go after one night. 5 star stunningness. Can't wait to go back!

Myself and my fiancé arrived to Dingle with plans to camp however there was a turn in the weather so we had a last minute scramble to find a room .
Thankfully we arrived to Emlagh which had one room free. Peggy the front of house was FANTASTIC. Nothing was too much trouble , she was so accommodating. Our room was grand, spacious and very clean. The breakfast included was lovely and that evening Peggy provided us with ice and a bucket so we could have some wine while we got ready. The location was super , 5 min walk to the town centre restaurants and bars. The house was grand , clean and had everything you need. Would definitely recommend and will be back if ever visiting dingle again!

Emlagh House was welcoming and comfortable. The house is decorated in the style of an old country estate, with lots of architectural detail, original paintings and antiques; yet it felt very cozy, comfortable and 'lived in'. Our room was very clean, spacious and had high ceilings and good light with a door opening to a small, private patio. Breakfasts were substantial with a full menu and very good food. When our rental car would not start, Susan went above and beyond to assist me in dealing with a very unresponsive Roadside Assistance Service that we paid for with the rental car . She made several calls and advocated for me. I cannot speak highly enough about the wonderful staff and how friendly and helpful they were! Highly recommend!

This was a charming spot in Dingle with the most spacious rooms we had in Ireland. Unique antique furniture throughout and even a tub. Each downstairs room has its own little private patio with a hedge around it (we were there on a rainy weekend so we weren't able to enjoy that, but there are plenty of places to relax inside and tea is always available in the living room). They had biscoff biscuits there with the tea, but it would be good to have plant-based milk and a vegan baked good too, and plant-based milks and more vegan options were needed at breakfast. That's the only reason I didn't give it 5 stars. The view from the dining room was lovely of the garden and a bit of the sea. Convenient location to walk to town in a few minutes on a sidewalk. Or you could walk to the seaside and down a trail to historic tower.

This hotel was an easy 7 minute walk from “downtown” Dingle. We had a really nice room that was the largest of any hotel we stayed in during our 9 days in Ireland. The room had a king sized bed and a nice sitting area with two chairs and a table and still had plenty of room. The bathroom was also completely accessible (grab bars and lipless shower) if you have mobility issues. Breakfast was very good.

Loved it! A short walk to the city center. The house itself is beautiful, and beautifully decorated, well maintained! Our large room had a seating area and a huge window that looked out over the town of Dingle and beyond, just lovely! The bathroom was large and well equipped, had a heated floor, very nice. We never heard so much as a peep out of the other guests, our room was very quiet. The breakfast and the lovely ladies serving the guests were all excellent! The staff were all very nice, friendly, and helpful. If I could change something it would only be the mattress on our bed, the center of the mattress was higher than the sides, we slightly rolled downhill either way, that affected the comfort level quite a bit, but it's certainly not a deal breaker, I still give Emlagh House 5 stars, we'll definitely stay at this charming place again, hopefully the mattress will have been replaced by then.

Stayed for three nights at Emlagh House. Dawn made us very welcome on arrival. The place is very spacious and full of beautiful antique furniture and the house is full of history. Our room was huge and bed was so comfortable.
Enjoyed lovely breakfast every morning served by the very chatty Susie and helpful Peggy and lovely views of Dingle bay to add to the beauty. Scones are delicious.
Will definitely return and I will also recommend Emlagh House to anyone wanting to stay in Dingle.

Perfect stay from start to finish!

Our host showed us around this interesting, large home and to our room, which was large, comfortable and clean. We had a very quiet night’s rest.

We had a bag of laundry - dropped it off with reception that evening - it was clean and ready at our door the next morning, which was most welcome.

The breakfast is outstanding - delicious scones with jam and lots of great menu choices.

It is an easy walk to downtown Dingle as well as to the bay just down a quiet road. We visited in July, and the backyard as well as the perimeter parking lot was bursting with beautiful blooms.

We did a tour the next morning, after checking out of the House, and we left our car in the private House parking lot until later in the afternoon, which made for a hassle free day.

We would definitely stay again!

Great location, lovely room with plenty of space and sea views. Breakfast was lovely and lots of parking! Gave extra towels when going for a dip in the sea. Amazing character for the price, would go again if staying in the kingdom. Can’t say anything bad…

We stayed here for June bank holiday weekend, when B&B’s were allowed to open up. We were greeted warmly by a very friendly lady, that looked after us very well. Our room was lovely, very spacious and clean and the bathroom was huge. The house is a beautiful and elegant house and the breakfast was fabulous, served by another professional and friendly lady. We will definitely recommend this place to others, thank you for looking after us so well
