Dun Ard is a beautiful house, with large lovely decorated rooms. Our room had a fantastic view over Dungarven Bay, it was spotlessly clean, and the bed very comfortable. The Breakfast was very good, and the hosts were friendly and helpful. Highly recommended!

As our first Ireland B&B experience, Dun Ard set a high bar for those that followed. The hosts were kind and welcoming. Very pretty location, and exceedingly comfortable room. You can tell they've put a lot of thought into how to make their guests feel at home, while still feeling spoiled.

Recommend this place highly. Perfect spot close enough to Dungarvan while enjoying the tranquility of the countryside. Likely to return to Dun Ard next time we visit the area. Clean and tidy. Good choice of breakfast. Luxurious rooms.

Joe and Anne's b&b was the best stay of our whole trip! Comfortable and clean accomadations, 5 star breakfast (be sure to try the porridge with Bailey's) and wonderful hospitality. Joe even went so far as to help us book our tour of the Jameson factory in Cork. Wish we would of been here more than one night!

We've been to Dun Ard in 2013 and loved the place, it was clear that if ever return to Ireland we would return to Dun Ard. So we did in September 2014. We had a warm welcome from Joe and Anne every time. The room we had was very luxurious and the breakfast was exquisite with lots of choices. Joe's...

I stayed in Dun Ard as I was working in the area. I am looking forward to return for a holiday. The accommodation was beautiful. Really modern. The facilities were more like a hotel then a bnb. It is modern and airy. I would recommend taking the 10 minute drive from Dungarvan to stay here. The location is amazing, there...

We were lucky enough to have won a competition of a five star stay at 'Dun Ard'. From the moment we arrived we were greeted in a relaxed, friendly manner by Joe who was a fountain of knowledge of the local area of An Rinn. The B&B itself is spotlessly clean and contemporary in design. The bedroom was spacious, comfortable...

Joe & Anne could not have been nicer or more helpful. The B&B is spotless, the views are wonderful, and the breakfasts delish. (Be sure to try the porridge sweetened with a shot of Bailey's!) I was in Ring & Old Parrish to do some research on my family tree. Joe put me in touch with distant cousins I never...

My husband and I have been to the Dun Ard several times on our own and we've also taken a number of our visiting Canadian guests to see the area and stay at the B&B. All have been thoroughly impressed by the B&B accommodations and the yummy breakfasts. We and our guests have occupied 3 different rooms and they were...

On business trips I prefer to stay away from B & B's preferring the space and anonymity of a hotel. However due to budgetary restrictions I found my self booking a night in Dun Ard. Well it was a revelation. A stunningly beautiful B & B where my room was luxurious, beautifully appointed and absolutely spotless with a bathroom you...
