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.
Learn more about our review moderation.

Jenny was such a lovely host and really cares about her guests. Her breakfasts are very healthy and above par for a b&b - fresh smoked salmon and mackerel, various egg options, great variety of breads and yogurts. Lovely location in Dingle and would highly recommend.

Jenny was a wonderful host who took great care to make sure we were comfortable. The room my family and I stayed in had a separating door between the queen bed and two twin beds and had comfortable chairs for reading. The reading room for all guests was available next to the beautiful dining room. Jenny has a variety of breakfast options that are tasty, healthy and filling. The best B&B of our entire Ireland trip!

It was an absolute pleasure staying at the Ballymore House B&B! Clean and comfortable rooms with beautiful ocean views. Jenny does a great job and is a wonderful host, above and beyond. Amazing and home cooked Irish Breakfast made to order. Great location, It's a quick drive into downtown Dingle. I recommend this B&B to anyone looking for a great experience all around!

This is the place to stay in the Dingle area. We had the nicest bedroom in a B&B on our trip to Ireland, and breakfast was a real treat! Everything about our stay here was ideal--especially the owner Jenny. My wife and I also liked the fact we were a short drive from Dingle on the coast, and a perfect place for a jump off drive around the Dingle Peninsula. We give the Ballymore House an A+, and hope to return on our next trip.

Lovely room, clean, neat and a comfortable bed... Les and Jenny couldn't have been nicer, the best breakfast you'll get anywhere.... I normally bring my tent with me when having a break but decided on a bed and breakfast option this time round and was very glad I did too.. wonderful location too... I took this photo a few kilometres up the road the weekend of my stay

We originally booked the Ballymore House because we couldn't find a vacancy in Dingle; but now, we would definitely come back to stay in Ventry! Ballymore is VERY close to Dingle, and the warm welcome we received, the time Les took to give us an extensive introduction us to the area, the great breakfast, and the immaculately clean room will bring us back to stay again! Some might consider the room to be a bit small, but it was fine for us (we spent most of our time out and about anyway), and very quiet (great for naps and sleeping at night).

We stayed on Friday night 1 September. The owners were very welcoming and friendly , our room and ensuite were spotlessly clean. Breakfast was delicious with plenty of juice ,cereals ,fruit etc to choose from.We would recommend this B&B.

Very unappealing and unsanitary to see cats all over the food prep area. Arguing couple Les and Jenny constantly bickering and could be heard through walk in living/tv room. Trickle of water in shower made it a bad experience along with the very tight and outdated accommodations. Don't arrive early or late as you will not be welcomed, this includes breakfast. Les is in some kind of pain and grunts at every movement when serving food. Jenny is put out if you ask for anything. Don't bother!

Surely ferrying service provided by us to this guest, free of charge, over five days, is worth some goodwill? We'll let the other reviews stand in our favour. I am sorry to say this review is not worth the response.
