Wonderful B&B. Since the manager Jacqui, is also the chef for their restaurant, breakfasts were wonderful. Besides regular Irish breakfast fare, she offered fresh grilled salmon or hake each day. We stayed 2 days longer than we'd planned and visited all of Dingle Peninsula from there. When we asked to extend our stay and they had no room they gave... More

Staying in the area "en famille", we were recommended by a friend to eat here. Essentially, a B&B with evening meals provided. First off, the booking was easy. We were 12 adults and 2 babes in arms. No deposit was requested, "all I ask is that you be on time". This is a rural setting so we booked a minibus... More

We visited this restaurant on the recommendation of local friends. It is located in the breakfast area of The OId Pier B&B, so it is small, only about five or six tables. It is essential that you book in advance. The Old Pier itself is located in Ballydavid on Slea Head Drive, and the views from the house are absolutely... More

My husband and I spent an evening in this restaurant last summer. The food was very good, and it seemed a perfect spot for families on holiday. The restaurant is in an old house just outside the village of Ballydavid. This whole west end of the Dingle peninsula, or Corca Dhúibhne, is one of the most beautiful spots on earth.... More

My third visit and I will be back. This is situated in a guest house in an area outside Dingle called an Fiotanach and needs careful driving.
