Uniquely located in the middle of Ballyferriter village on the Dingle Peninsula, halfway the Slea Head drive with its breathtaking views, the newly built Ceann Sibéal Hotel opened its doors in July 2004. Nestled amidst an idyllic scenery, a walking distance away from the beaches of Smerwick harbour, you can enjoy a visit to the local museum or nearby heritage sites, have a round of golf on the nearby links golf course (2 minutes drive), enjoy angling, cycling, horse riding, visit the inspiring Blasket Islands and other activities, to finish your evening with a delicious meal and even a night of traditional music in our bar or in one of the three pubs across the street.Our charming, 3***, family-feel hotel has 26 bedrooms, which are all equally spacious and comfortable and are decorated to create a most relaxing atmosphere. Some of the rooms have commanding views of Smerwick harbour, the Three Sisters, Sybil Head, Mount Brandon or spectacular sunsets over the ocean.We hope to be welcoming you to the Ceann Sibéal Hotel in the near future.

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.

Myself and my wife went to this hotel for a midweek getaway. We had the most relaxing,comfortable stay that we ever had anywhere. Beautiful room with amazing sea views. Had food and drinks in the bar. Lovely cosy bar with a big warm fire. This place is what you expect Ireland to be like. All topped off by the friendly, welcoming staff, particularly Tara who could not do enough for us. Can't wait to return.

Warmly welcomed us when we arrived after a rainy day of walking the Dingle Way. Felt so good to dry off, rest and had one of the best meals of our trip to Ireland. The seafood chowder was incredible. We were able to order a lunch to take with us the next day - sandwich, crisps, banana, orange and bottle of water for only 10 euro.

The Ceann hotel was very nice. The staff was friendly and the breakfast was very nice. The front desk provided much good advice and directions on how to drive the Dingle loop. Their recommendation on how to travel to Shannon was very valuable.

My wife and I stayed here last week for three nights and really enjoyed ourselves. It is a relaxed, unpretentious hotel, reasonably priced, very efficiently run and with most friendly and attentive staff. Our bedroom was plain but spacious, comfortable and spotless. The food was so good that we dined in each evening, which we very rarely do. We had to unexpectedly cut short our stay by one night. The manager could not have been more understanding or accommodating about our last-minute change of plans. All in all a highly satisfactory experience. If you want to stay west of Dingle you won't do better. We would certainly be very happy to stay here again.

The family-run Ceann Sibéal Hotel is in an area of outstanding natural beauty. Our room was large, spacious, and well-equipped and the staff was friendly and helpful. A special mention is for Martin, whose impeccable professionalism, ensured that the hotel's operations flowed seamlessly. Even when we encountered a booking mishap of our own making, the situation was promptly and efficiently resolved, a testament to the staff's dedication. Breakfast is a serve-yourself affair with a good choice and there is a wide choice on the dinner menu. Overall, a lovely stay to enjoy the beautiful scenery and we also enjoyed the golf and food at Ceann Sibéal Golf Club.

A lovely place to stay away from the hustle and bustle. A great base from where to explore the area. Fabulous breakfast that would set you up for the day. Thanks again for the packed lunches, they went down very well on our trip to the Blasket Islands. Staff were very effecient and extremely helpful. We Would definitely return.

My husband and I had lunch at the hotel restaurant when traveling through the area, and it was a wonderful experience. The clam chowder was delicious, and perfect to take off the chill from the rain. The interior is beautiful and well-cared for. Staff were professional and well-trained. Definitely stop in if you are in the area!

Ceann Shibeal is a welcoming relaxed hotel set in beautiful rugged west coast of Kerry. We had a wonderful time, the staff, the service, the food and the room was top class. Breakfast was delicious and set us up for the day. Our only complaint was our time was too short, a little gem in the West, we'll definitely be back

The location for this hotel is great- very quaint village with several pubs and friendly folks. The room was nice, comfortable and clean. Our surprise highlight was the restaurant/bar in the hotel. This chef is nailing it- all the food we had here was amazing!
