My husband and I stayed here two nights in May, and it was magical! The view from our room was stunning! The location was an easy two minute drive into town and on a direct route to Slea Head drive. The hosts were amazingly friendly, helpful, welcoming, and cooked up the best breakfast in all of Ireland! Do not hesitate...

Aiden and Marion were very welcoming. Dunlavin House was a wonderful surprise with a beautiful water view from our clean and cozy room. Aiden provided us with a lot of local knowledge and history. We were encouraged to see the music and pub life and Aiden offered to drive us into town and we could walk about 20 minutes back....

We had the most wonderful stay at Dunlavin house. From the moment we arrived I felt so welcome and at ease. Aidan is a fantastic fountain of knowledge about all Dingle has to offer. The room was beautiful decorated, the bed was incredibly comfortable and the sea view was incredible. Breakfast was gorgeous the dramatic rainy sea view serves as...

For the second year in a row we stayed at the Dunlavin House in Dingle, Ireland. We felt right at home again. Accommodations were perfect and the owners, Aiden and Marion, are so delightful we wished we could have stayed longer. The Inn is clean and very comfortable and the breakfast is the best anywhere!

We had a fab time at Dunlavin house from start to finish. Aidan welcomed us after our long journey then met us an hour later to bring us into Town and showed us around Dingle pointing out good places to visit for dinner/drinks etc. Marian made a fab breakfast each morning and they are such a friendly, welcoming couple.

What can I say about Dunlavin house? I recently stayed for three nights along with my two friends. We had a room with three single beds which was perfect for our girly holiday. We arrived a little later than planned but Aidan was very accommodating. We received a warm welcome and found our room to be clean and comfortable, we...

Greeted by a husband/wife duo, we were immediately welcomed. Books, tea in room, comfy bed, quiet, and classic Irish breakfast. Close, but not too close to town. Perfect for us, perhaps not the most convenient if you are a big pub crawler. Proprietors helped us decide where to go for fresh and ample seafood dinner, helped with bags and hugged...

Even though we were just for a day, from the very first moment the owners made us feel very comfortable and welcome and offered to give us any local information we may need, the rooms are tidy and clean. In the morning the breakfast was superb! Tasteful and similar to a 5star hotel. 100% recommendable

Lovely location looking out over the sea. Warm, comfortable, clean room and very lovely breakfast served in a pretty conservatory looking out at the stunning view.
