The hospitality, breakfast, nice rooms and convenience to town makes this a great stopover in Dingle. We were brought into their home, not just renting a room. We were given a history of the house and the island. Would definitely stay again!

Although it was a couple of years ago the memory lives on in my head and such delightful hosts - loved the stories and looking forward to staying here again. Close to everything with everything you would need for a relaxing stay.

A group of friends have stayed in this B&B several years running, their repeat business is testament to the friendly welcome (ceade mille failte), value and comfort received every visit. I joined their trip this year and am already planning on next years visit. The B&B is a one minute walk from the pier and two minutes away from the...

In our room, we had the best view of the bay. We could see all the bay and out to the sea. Juli, our host was great and her children helped so much when she was away shopping. They, themselves, were great hosts and helped us to our room when we first got there. Will stay again. Bill and Diane

My two sisters and brother and I arrived in Dingle with no reservations late in the afternoon. We parked the car and started walking, looking for accommodations. We came across First Cottage and they had vacancies. Julie was very friendly and welcoming. She showed us to rooms upstairs at 40 Euro per person. Very nice and comfortable en-suite rooms. Two...

We stayed two nights in August 2015 and had a lovely time. Our room was clean and comfortable, had its own bathroom, and a great view of the water. Warm and welcoming hosts with lots of local tips. Short walk to downtown.

We stayed three nights in this homely b&b. The owners are very welcoming and a great source of local information. They make suberb breakfasts (optional), with lots of great fresh fruit (if you want). Very good value!

Arrived in lovely Dingle around 6pm in the summer without a booking and decided to take our chances. We definitely had some Irish luck when we came across First Cottage and they had one room left! Joe and Julie were wonderful hosts, gave us tips on hikes, pubs and restaurants, and fed us extremely well. We got room 3 which...

The best B&B i've ever seen. Julie & Joe are really thoughtful and pleasant. And i'll never forget the wonderful breakfast Julie prepared for us each morning. I'm really impatient to be there one more time!
