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.

We were looking for a unique guesthouse experience in an out of the way location that had a pub on-site. The rooms are your basic guesthouse rooms with no thrills. They are not the Ritz, but cozy, clean, and comfortable. Perfect for us getting some rest after visiting the pub. We had dinner in the pub and I some of the best seafood chowder I ever had. The guesthouse is located just off the Kerry Way Trail so there were a number of hiker in the pub from all over Europe and the US. The bartender was from Paris and was the best. Breakfast was included in our stay and my full Irish breakfast was excellent.

Family holiday in beautiful Cloghane. Blessed by gorgeous weather throughout our stay which made all the difference. Very important to request a room facing the sea, as the view is magnificent. The facilities are very simple and basic. But perfectly adequate. Similarly, the menu for dinner is not at all extensive; we also found service can be very slow (but, in fairness, this is probably a function of their being having a full house when we stayed). Staff are good natured and friendly. Breakfast is excellent... the "full Irish" sets you up nicely for the day ahead! The pub downstairs invariably busy in the evenings with loads of atmosphere. A very pleasant spot to swop tales with fellow travellers.

We arrived at Cloghane and were welcomed from the word go with lovely hospitality. The view from our pitch was stunning. We ate pizza and burger in the pub, along with drinks, that were lovely and reasonably priced. We drove to the beaches along the quiet bay and walked alone along lovely Sandy bays. Great place for a quiet time. Enjoyed some fishing off a beach. Woke to the sounds of curlews and oyster catchers. Facilities are basic. Two toilets, one shower working for all the pitches. The pluses far outweigh the negatives and we would definitely return and suggest you visit.

O'Connors is a gem, a special place. As the sign outside says, "You'll want to come back". We were a family of 5 and had two big rooms (1a, 1b) on the ground floor. Rooms were clean and requests for additional towels etc were promptly responded to by the efficient Regina. Micheal is the man of the house and what a host, full of wit and warm hospitality. His mother bakes the sweets post dinner while his son David pours the pints in the bar. It is a true family affair. Breakfast is wholsome and dinner menu while not large is very nice. Atmosphere throughtout oozes hospitality. Great fun and super location to explore Brandon and the great Dingle peninsula from. No request is too large - you want a taxi, a boat or just a packed lunch, they will deliver. Exceptional. They have been in business for 162 years, it is easy to see why.

Stayed here for two nights to climb Mount Brandon - short drive up to the car park then 5 hour walk there and back! Lovely atmosphere in the bar in the evenings with live folk music and everyone invited to sing along. Rooms were basic but comfortable and the shower was brilliant with lots of hot water. I took one star off for the food as you have to be careful what you pick. The Irish stew was tasty, but there was a lot of canteen type meals with chips. I suppose it's what tourists expect, but a lot of it was overcooked. The breakfasts were nice and very big which made up for it. I would definitely return again as it's such a beautiful location on the lake and a great location for walking.

This was our last stay on our walking tour of the Dingle Way. Our room was exactly as we expected in a B and B- comfortable, dated (but in a quaint way), but with everything we needed, wifi was good and showers had plenty of hot water. The breakfast in the morning was really delicious. I had smoked salmon and cream cheese and my husband had a Spanish omelette. We had a really lovely evening in the pub our last night. They owner walked around and greeted everyone. He told stories of the area and introduced different groups to one another. The live music was just lovely and I found myself singing along after a couple of pints. It felt very comfortable and homie. The food was also delicious- the curry, the fish and chips and the sticky toffee pudding. Everything was made in house. It was all prepared quickly and served by a friendly bar tender. We will stay here again if we are ever in this area again.

We stayed here while walking the Dingle Way and had a great night. Everyone was friendly and helpful. Our room was very comfortable, and the small bathroom was clean. At dinner the hake / fish and chips was some of the best I have ever had. The pub was crowded and fun. The proprietor even brought out the guest book for us to sign while he made the rounds during the evening. Breakfast was tasty, and they easily arranged for a car to take us to Tralee in the morning. I wouldn’t hesitate to stay here again!

We decided last minute to take a trip to the little village of Cloghane. I had been following their Instagram for some time and felt it was time to see it myself and I was not disappointed! We stayed in a van and the facilities were perfect. Electricity, water, bins, toilets and HOT showers all for €25 a night. Anne in reception was very kind and accommodating and answered any questions we had. Food was also very good with owner Micehál furthermore creating a friendly warm atmosphere. We cannot wait to visit again soon. Special mention to Marion looking after laundry, I spent 20 minutes chatting and could have easily spent 20 more, a very nice lady.

The room we were assigned to was small, but that was insignificant compared to the condition of the bathroom. The entire place was covered with black mold. In America we treat black mold as toxic... so we wouldn't leave any of our gear in there. To make matters worse, there was a leak in the shower stem which shot water onto the ceiling of the stall, which then dripped black mold water onto anyone using the shower. My overall impression was the place was being run by a group of twenty-something interns from a local university enrolled in hospitality/hotel management. I couldn't seem to find anyone who wasn't sitting in front of computer engaged in whatever internet captivation that was running. I had people in line ahead of me who were complaining about not even having towels in their room. It seemed pointless to address the bathroom since they were challenged enough providing amenities like towels. Wifi was non-existant anywhere but in the main lobby area where a young receptionist was handing out an incorrect password on a post-it note... the bartender pointed out the correction after I inquired about coverage. The breakfast the next morning was a complete circus. We were told to submit our breakfast menu the evening before which we did. We were also told that breakfast would be served beginning at 8:30 a.m. which is much later than all other establishments we visited and a disappointment to those of us trying to get an early start of the day's hike. We came down at 8:30 am to find a line of people waiting outside a LOCKED dining room door. After another 15 minutes of waiting, an enterprising young man walked outside the hotel and entered through another door to ask about the delay. He was told "they didn't know the door was locked" which is a hoot! No one from the hotel is seated in the dining room at 8:50 in the morning and someone doesn't find that odd? To add the final insult, it is now 9:00 am and a nice young lady comes to our table to "take our order." Why did we bother to fill out the form and submit it the night before?? My breakfast arrived 20 minutes later with blood pudding, which I was sure to note on my menu card that I did not want, so I am certain the cards were not reviewed. The final laugh my wife and i had was when the young lady brought a plate of cold, dry, store-bought toasted bread that a table of 6 could not have finished... It just became outright laughable. Sadly, the breakfast was not even worth waiting for... Come to think of it, dinner in the pub the night before was mediocre as well... I had a charred gray burger with the only moisture provided by the lettuce leaf and tomato slice inside... Maybe O'Conner's is the only game in town and they know it? I can't recommend this place to anyone...
