Jill was very welcoming. She cooked us a lovely breakfast and kept a spotlessly clean house. She provided books, leaflets and many types of beverage all appreciated. She even dried my washing for me. The house was within easy walking distance of the village but torch is definitely required for the walk back in the dark as the pavement and...

Jill was a lovely host for our stay and her home is super quiet (if you don't count an occasional sheep in the distance) making for a restful night's sleep. Breakfast was delicious and Jill was very helpful with recommendations about local sights and places to hear music. She has the classic breakfast items and a few unique ones as...

The host is a great ambassador for her city and region, and willing to share a lot of information and tips. The rooms are clean, and nicely equipped. Downside, only cash accepted which can of course be an issue if you stay several nights. Then, when all is not according to the hosts routines, she get's very stressed and everything...

We spontaneously decided to stay in dingle and by pure chance found the Liston family B&B. It was a great find! Lovely stay, nice room with great facilities in the room(tea, coffee, hot chocolate, biscuits, kettle, hair dryer, tv and all bathroom necessities). The woman of the house was so friendly and accommodating. Lovely to chat to in the morning....

This young Irish couple Chloe and Richard are a credit to society. What a wonderful couple. You are one guest that will stand out in my mind at the end of the season for your friendliness. Delighted you enjoyed your stay here and that you enjoyed the night in Dingle town. Thank you so much Chloe for your wonderful comments....

Jill was full of info regarding her beloved Dingle. Clean and comfortable and close to town. 20 min. walk but I would take a cab at night due to dark country road - taxi was 10 euros. Just what we were looking for!

We got to this B&B by chance because our prebooked B&B forgot about us and had no room left for us. But in fact this was the big chance to meet Jill and spend a lovely time in her cozy home. She is a brilliant host! Our room and the en suite bathroom were spacious with very comfortable beds. The...

We stayed here for 3 nights in early September and really enjoyed it. Jill is very welcoming, full of good tips and advice. The breakfast offerings are really good and diverse... from a large fry to more healthy (but tasty) offerings : ). The room was very comfortable, and well-appointed. The B&B is a short walk into Dingle - very...
