Stayed here one night on golf tour of Ireland. Beautiful location and accommodations. Our hosts provided us with wonderful lifetime memories. What hospitality and congeniality. Dingle and Dingle peninsula are must sees in Ireland.

We stayed her one evening. Derry was a nice host and greeted us with tea. He is a retired Dept of Agriculture agent and so we had a nice discussion of Irish farming. The room was nice, clean, well. We had Smoked salmon and scrambled eggs for breakfast. It was one of my favorite breakfasts while I was in Ireland....

Ann and Derry Murphy were wonderful hosts. Derry is a font of local knowledge. We enjoyed every one of his recommendations, including where to eat, where to hear music, and where to see the Star Wars filming. We were very glad he told us about Louis Mulcahy's Pottery Shop - beautiful ceramics and a very nice place for lunch. Ann...

Absolutely loved this place! Quaint, cozy, very reasonably priced, and the couple who runs it is just lovely! Very sweet and accommodating. It was a perfect place to disconnect for a bit and unwind. Wonderful homemade breakfast in the morning, and just a little ways down from the main strip in Dingle. A little home away from home. Positively perfect....

My wife and I stayed here a couple of weeks ago and couldn't be happier with the services Derry and his wonderful wife provided us during our visit. We were welcomed with tea and biscuits along with wonderful conversation. Derry gave several restaurant recommendations as well. Accommodations were a few minutes drive from town and away from all of the...

Myself and my husband had the pleasure of staying in this B&B last night and the family who own it are just so nice and welcoming. They're a credit to Irish tourism. Would highly recommend it, cost, location and cleanliness wise.

This was one of our B&B's we visited during our Ireland roadtrip. The location was perfect, nice and quiet with a great view of the water from our room. But also close to Dingle for some activities or dinner in the evening. The rooms were basic but clean and both hosts were very friendly and interested to give you tips...

My husband and I stayed one night for our anniversary as we traveled through Ireland. We absolutely loved Dingle, and the home fit the location beautifully. It was a nice, comfortable home. We had a view of the pasture next door and watched the cows graze. Breakfast was delicious!! My husband and I both had French toast. We would definitely...

Stayed for one night mid week. Location is relatively remote but a stones throw from the coast. Room furnishings are somewhat old fashioned but homely. Hosts very friendly and accommodating. Better rates are achievable through direct contact rather than thru websites

As the name suggests "Ard Na Mara", this property is located by the sea, just off the road between Dingle and Vestry. The rooms are rather small, but comfortable and the breakfasts well prepared by the very hospitable host couple. It's a place to sleep, rather than to hang out.
