Joe and Anne's b&b was the best stay of our whole trip! Comfortable and clean accomadations, 5 star breakfast (be sure to try the porridge with Bailey's) and wonderful hospitality. Joe even went so far as to help us book our tour of the Jameson factory in Cork. Wish we would of been here more than one night!

We've been to Dun Ard in 2013 and loved the place, it was clear that if ever return to Ireland we would return to Dun Ard. So we did in September 2014. We had a warm welcome from Joe and Anne every time. The room we had was very luxurious and the breakfast was exquisite with lots of choices. Joe's...

I stayed in Dun Ard as I was working in the area. I am looking forward to return for a holiday. The accommodation was beautiful. Really modern. The facilities were more like a hotel then a bnb. It is modern and airy. I would recommend taking the 10 minute drive from Dungarvan to stay here. The location is amazing, there...

We were lucky enough to have won a competition of a five star stay at 'Dun Ard'. From the moment we arrived we were greeted in a relaxed, friendly manner by Joe who was a fountain of knowledge of the local area of An Rinn. The B&B itself is spotlessly clean and contemporary in design. The bedroom was spacious, comfortable...

Joe & Anne could not have been nicer or more helpful. The B&B is spotless, the views are wonderful, and the breakfasts delish. (Be sure to try the porridge sweetened with a shot of Bailey's!) I was in Ring & Old Parrish to do some research on my family tree. Joe put me in touch with distant cousins I never...

My husband and I have been to the Dun Ard several times on our own and we've also taken a number of our visiting Canadian guests to see the area and stay at the B&B. All have been thoroughly impressed by the B&B accommodations and the yummy breakfasts. We and our guests have occupied 3 different rooms and they were...

On business trips I prefer to stay away from B & B's preferring the space and anonymity of a hotel. However due to budgetary restrictions I found my self booking a night in Dun Ard. Well it was a revelation. A stunningly beautiful B & B where my room was luxurious, beautifully appointed and absolutely spotless with a bathroom you...

Clean, spacious rooms. Cozy and comfortable and up-to-date. Joe is a great host, and really makes everyone feel at home. Breakfast was great. The location is a few minutes from town and restaurants, but an easy drive.

You would have to travel many miles to find a better stay than the one I have just had at Dun Ard located An Rinn on the way to Dungarvan. More of a boutique style mini hotel than a B&B - warm welcome from Joe and settled in quickly, lovely house and bedroom with a all amenities. Bathroom was all...

My husband and I spent our first night in Ireland at Dun Ard, and it is a night we won't soon forget!! Everything was perfect, and has to be one of the top B&Bs we have ever stayed at, quite possibly the best (and we have stayed in dozens). The Gaeltacht community where it is located is simply gorgeous, and...
