Where to stay in Dingle?

My husband & are staying in Dingle for two nights in May. We were hoping to stay at Pax, but unfortunately it is booked.

Any suggestions? Thank you!

Castlewood house. Favorite place we stayed in all of Ireland.

We stayed a few times at the Lighthouse, private car park and can walk to town and it was lovely. Also stayed at the Celli Breach (not sure of spelling). It is a little further out but also private car parking and a lively deck upstairs where you can sit outside and view the harbor. Our rooms there had great views, I seem to remember better views than Lighthouse. Cannot go wrong with either.

We loved Milestone House--we stayed there on two occasions. Barbara and Michael are wonderful hosts! They make a point of sitting down with you to familiarize you with the area and what it has to offer. The rooms are comfortable and breakfast is lovely. It is located right at the start of the Slea Head drive.

We stayed at the Captin's House in Dingle town. It was well equipped with a kitchen and most importantly, a combo washer/dryer, which was a wonderful treat to have. It was walking distance to town and the Marina. It was well stocked with all our breakfast fixings and the hosts were wonderful.

I'll second Milestone House. Not only do they go over their hand drawn maps of Dingle and the surrounding area and give advice about the best places to see, their breakfast is delicious. The soda breads are to die for!

We will be staying at The Greenmount House in Dingle in June for the second time...we really like it.

I third Milestone! I've stayed there twice and they are so great! And Michael makes the best soda bread! The first time I came solo and had no car and they picked me up at the bus stop and told me whom to hire for the pennisula drive. They are awesome people!!! (originally from Dublin, or Michal, at least, is...) Enjoy!

Coastline House! View of Dingle Bay is lovely. Wi-fi, very clean. The breakfasts are wonderful (porridge with Bailey's...yum) and it's a short walk into town.

I would look into Milltown House as well. (Different from Milestone). Co-owned by RS tour guide Stephen McPhilemy, it's a great place on Dingle Bay. Great accommodations and food options. As a added bonus, you can meet Seamus, the resident Irish Wolfound, and his not yet fully grown niece. Great place to stay.

Our RS tour in May is staying at Dingle Skellig Hotel??? Don't know anything about it yet and have not seen it mentioned in any posts. Also not in his guide book so perhaps this is a new option for his tours?????

We are in Dingle right now, and checked into the Kirrary B&B that Rick Steves so highly recommends.

I'm sorry to say that no matter how nice the owner is, this is unfortunately a place to be avoided. I cannot fathom why it was recommended. Room is cramped, tired, shabby and filled with a jumble of cheap furniture. Bed has some cheap mattress I dread having to sleep on. The shampoo/soap in the RV-sequel bathroom is bright pink Palmolive...like for washing dishes. We are moving to a different lodging in Dingle tomorrow...cannot wait.

We are currently in Dingle, staying at the Alpine Guesthouse. The owner is super friendly. The rooms are comfortable and very clean. The breakfast is excellent, cooked to order with several choices. The rooms are quiet with no road noise. A three minute walk into the middle of town, just a stones throw from the excellent Chart House restaurant. Highly recommended and you get a 10 percent discount for mentioning RS.

We have stayed twice at Pax Guesthouse. The owner, John, is a wonderful host, and the location is spectacular. Uphill from town so it's quiet at night, with a lawn overlooking the sea. Simply breathtaking. Ask for a sea view room.

Another vote for Castlewood House. Best breakfast we had on our whole trip. Luxurious accommodations and wonderful owners. Can't say enough good things about Castlewood!

Rick has been recommending Kirrary for over 15 years. The Collins' who run it are delightful. It's worth noting it gets a 4 and a half rating on trip advisor. Perhaps some people should just stick with the Ritz.
