I will be staying in Dingle for 3 nights in July 2008. I have already tried to book the Captains House and also Alpine Guesthouse but they do not have the rooms I need for that time (3 rooms). Can anyone suggest a different place they have stayed and enjoyed? Thanks for your help
Duinin B&B is a very nice place to stay. Pat and Ann Neligan are great hosts AND one choice of breakfast items is porridge with Irish Cream on it!!! Yummy.
Tell Pat that Bonnie sent you!! We've stayed with them on our trips to Ireland.
I would have suggested the Alpine, as I stayed there recently. However if they're booked, my only suggestion would be to try some of the other listings in Rick's Guidebook.
Try Emlagh Lodge: http://www.emlaghlodge.com/
Maggie's just wonderful and her breakfasts are fantastic! Incredible views from all the rooms. Quick walk to town. I see you need 3 rooms though. Maggie only has 4 rooms total and 1 or 2 might be booked already. Worth a try though!
We stayed at Heaton's Guesthouse in July 2004. They had the BEST breakfast, large rooms, very friendly hosts, great view - www.heatonsdingle.com.
Heaton's is a good suggestion, though I haven't stayed there. I stayed next door at Castlewood House. The owners/operators of Heaton's are the parents of either the wife or husband (can't remember which) that runs Castlewood House.
We are staying at the Lighthouse in Dingle next March. It has been highly recommended. Google it and check it out
Try the cill bhreac house. They have a web site.
We (family of four) stayed at an apartment over Jon Benny Moriarty's pub in Dingle for Christmas last year. Our apartment had two bedrooms, I think there are at least 3 or 4 other apartments there. Jon Benny's has great food and great music and "craic".
Good luck and have fun!
Not sure of your budget, but we enjoyed Emlagh House tremendously. Great restaurant, location and rooms. Can't go wrong with this one. http://www.emlaghhouse.com/
I traveled in June 2006 with my family of five (I have 3 boys 11,13,15 at the time). I had trouble booking a double and a triple room using the recommendations in RS book. So I Googled and found Dingle Harbour Lodge www.dingleharbourloddge.com. We were given two rooms both having a view of the harbor. Kevin O'Shea is the managerand was very friendly and informative. The location is truly a walking distance to the town centre. There are plenty of rooms so I'm sure you'll have no problems in booking. This was my second time in Dingle and loved every minute of it....even with my spouse and children! Happy Travels
