Doyle's

This Hotel is both above and around Doyle's Seafood Restaurant, and I can't recommend the hotel enough. The staff was very helpful and the location was perfect. We were pleasantly surprised by how nice the rooms were, and loved that we could walk downstairs for dinner or down the street to the pub. The only problem was we stayed here first, and it set the bar too high, as we were then very disappointed with our hotel in Killarney.

The Phoenix Farmhouse B&B: A treasure of peace and quiet

The Phoenix Farmhouse has a charming little Chalet which is separate from the main house. It has its own kitchen, bathroom with shower, living area downstairs and a loft with additional sleeping space. They had magazines and books to read, a small television that was not working due to no cable but who needs t.v. when you can be outside enjoying the yard and all the flowers!

This is not a busy area with lots of tourists and is perfect for hill walking, swimming (blue flag beach Inch Strand is about 6 miles away) or just sit and relax and enjoy the beautiful outdoors. The 2 young women in our group enjoyed the family pets--2 dogs and 3 cats!

The Phoenix has a vegetarian restaurant on site. Our night stay here included a very nice breakfast.

The Phoenix Farmhouse is certainly unique as the owners operate this working farmhouse themselves and grow all their own vegetables, spices etc. They also do all the cooking and bread baking for their vegetarian restaurant.

Graves Farmhouse B&B: Homey hospitality with spectacular views!

We stayed our first night in Ireland here, and were warmly greeted at the door by Joan Garvey herself, who served us hot tea and scones in her lovely parlor. What a welcome to Ireland! Their spacious farmhouse is perched on a low hill near Dingle Bay, and has several spotless guest rooms all en suite (with private baths). Each one has pretty wallpaper, good beds, and homey furnishings. Our rooms were on the front of the house, so we had spectacular views of the water and mountains. Mrs. Garvey offered suggestions for where to eat and which pubs would be likely to have trad Irish sessions that night. She recommended strongly that we not miss taking the Slea Head Drive loop. She was knowledgeable about all the significant sights in the area. In the morning, after a hearty home-cooked Irish breakfast served by her in her own dining room, she called ahead and booked rooms for us at a B&B she recommended in Kinare. We hugged her goodbye, but not before she agreed to be videotaped, speaking about her home and life in both English and Irish. We would recommend Garvey's for any season of the year. The area is quiet, unspolied and beautiful.

Especially welcoming, very private & quiet yet close to famous trad Irish music pubs. Many historical and scenic wonders of County Kerry are right outside your door. Garvey's has friendly service, very home-like and comfortable, yet we never felt hurried or had our privacy invaded.

Quayside Bed & breakfast: Nice B&B near the bus stop

Fiona, the manager was very young and helpful to us. She had worked for this bed and breakfast and now had taken over as manager. She was trying new things, new menus, redecorating....etc. It was very nice and I would stay here again. The scrambled eggs with smoked salmon for breakfast was the deciding factor.

Grapevine Hostel: Grapevine Hostel

I stayed in the Grapevine for 1 night on March 4 and left on March 5, 2005.
I had to share a room with a group of strangers (it is a hostel after all!) and had to take the top bunk. The bed was hard and unforgiving and the bed and sheets felt too short for me (at 6'2").
I couldn't take a shower because one of the girls on the bunks below me were drying out thier panties and bras in the shower and on my bedframe.
The kitchen is small but serves its purpose.
The living room area is cozy with satilite television. I got to watch Conan O'Brian before hearding out to the pubs.

I didn't enjoy my stay in the Grapevine as much as I probably would or could have had circumstances been better (i.e. bed, shower...).

Central location, door security lock, satilite television

Murphys Pub: Great pub in Dingle

Turned up here, asked if they had a room and they did. Nice room, friendly pub, they had a fantastic Irish singer on in the evening.

Breakfast was superb. I can't remember how much we paid but it wasn't very expensive for bed and breakfast. I think it as about 25 euros each.

Just on the seafront opposite the harbour.

They sell T-shirts which is a great momento to take home. Not very expensive.

Stella Doyle's Guest House: Best Kept Secret in Dingle Town.

Don't let the curb appeal discourage you from this great B&B. Old world charm in decorating, Double beds first floor in the back. Unbelievable cooking. A best kept secret, but no more.

The cooking!!!!!!!!!!! And Stella herself of course.

family stay: The legendary Bean an Ti

We stayed with a family down in Ventry and met up with the rest of the class in the nearest village.

The whole notion of "bean an ti" is an integral part of going to the Gaeltacht. The term is the Irish for "woman of the house" and she's like a surrograte mother to kids who stay with her to learn Irish.

Camping in Dingle: Dingle town

Dingle is well accomadated towards campers and has a number of small campsites cum hostels.
Among these are Ballintaggart house which is a couple of miles outside Dingle, It is always busy so book ahead or arrive early. Five miles from Dingle is the Campsite near Gallarus Oratory. There is also a very small campsite in the town whose name escapes me.
