“High Standards continue”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 March 2012

Following my latest trip to the Dingle Peninsula I am delighted to report that the high standards I have previously experienced in this hotel are as high as ever. Although the hotel was not as busy as in the summer the staff took this opportunity to show how warm and friendly the local people are. The room was large with a super kingsize bed and the Dingle bay hotel kindly donate the free use of a Sat Nav to navigate yourself around it. The breakfast menu was excellent and the bar meals we had were a good portion size priced within keeping for the area, which represented very good value for money.These bar meals were taken in Paudies Bar, which is part of the Dingle Bay Hotel, that has a great atmosphere and live music in the evenings, so there is no need to venture out into the soft irish weather if their is no need to. I cannot wait for my next visit and I am in the process of booking it already

Room Tip: Ask for the super kingsize bed with the sea view

Stayed there for one night, great hotel, right in the centre, really large room with great views and the staff very welcoming, came in late and the bar man kindly gave us a jug of water to take to the room and was very friendly, the breakfast was also really good quality and the staff in the morning were brilliant, a real breath of fresh air, if you are looking for something central, well maintained without the fuss, then you cant go wrong with this hotel, will be back.

I stayed at this hotel last weekend with a group of 20 of my friends. The location is perfect as you are in the centre of Dingle so no Taxi fares etc are needed. The hotel is beautiful and is full of friendly, accomodating staff who will endeavour to meet your every need. The rooms are clean, modern and well looked after while the food (especially breakfast) is superb! What a little gem!

The hotel has obviously recently completed painting/varnishing and the smell was overpowering. We had to ask for a different room because the first room was unbearably fumey. Little did we know that the second room, being on the first floor, would be so noisy. I don't know if it was a special event or it's always like this on a Friday night but we were kept awake by very loud music until 3am - and not traditional Irish music! Also, the room hadn't been heated and barely warmed up when we were in it (admittedly, it was a very cold couple of days). Like other people have said, the carpets were very stained but I always take slippers anyway so it was no problem. On the plus side, bed was comfortable and the breakfast was very good. Also, both the initial and final rooms were a good size.

Room Tip: As far away from the bar as possible!
