The restaurant and bar were beautiful with gorgeous wood. We had dinner here one night and across the street one night. Breakfast and dinner all delicious. We were there Easter week and...

The manageress needs to quickly realised she's running a hotel, not some grubby pub. Her attitude is not suited for running a hotel, where a certain basic standard of effort is expected. A "like it or lump it" attitude is what greeted us from the moment we even began the booking process! Rest of staff just ok.. Food in bar...

Great hotel, massive room with a double and single bed with a lovely sea views. Bar food was as good as I've gotten anywhere on my travels and the cooked breakfast was fresh every morning which was an added bonus. Great Base to visit West Kerry and I'd highly recommend it.

Decent hotel, value for money. Would stay again. Rooms are large and clean. Didn't spend much time in the hotel bar as the local pubs in the village had far more character and the music was better. On busy weekends tha hotel fills up fast so my advice is to book early during peak season.

I loved this hotel We stayed for three nights and the small staff could not have been more welcoming or friendly or helpful!! My room was very comfortable. Convenient to a nice walk to a beach, some shops & several pubs. It was also a great place to stay for access to day trips!

We stayed here in July 2015. We have stayed here before and as usual we found it good value for money, friendly staff, good food, nice breakfast, peaceful and a perfect base from which to explore the wonderful Dingle Penninsula and Blasket Islands.

We stayed here for 4 nights and had a fantastic time. Very friendly staff , lovely food and a great base for touring. Ballyferriter is a quiet village but there are several bars apart from the hotel so there is no need to travel too far at night. The area has a wealth of lovely beaches, walks and tourist attractions...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Uniquely located in the middle of Ballyferriter village on the Dingle Peninsula, halfway the Slea Head drive with its breathtaking views, the newly built Ceann Sibéal Hotel opened its doors in July 2004. Nestled amidst an idyllic scenery, a walking distance away from the beaches of Smerwick harbour, you can enjoy a visit to the local museum or nearby heritage sites, have a round of golf on the nearby links golf course (2 minutes drive), enjoy angling, cycling, horse riding, visit the inspiring Blasket Islands and other activities, to finish your evening with a delicious meal and even a night of traditional music in our bar or in one of the three pubs across the street.Our charming, 3***, family-feel hotel has 26 bedrooms, which are all equally spacious and comfortable and are decorated to create a most relaxing atmosphere. Some of the rooms have commanding views of Smerwick harbour, the Three Sisters, Sybil Head, Mount Brandon or spectacular sunsets over the ocean.We hope to be welcoming you to the Ceann Sibéal Hotel in the near future. ... more   less
