Lovely rooms, comfy beds, friendly staff and an awesome breakfast, who could wish for more! The pub next door, the Randy Leprechaun was great for an evening out too. Stunning area, completely in love with the Dingle Penninsula.

It was all we expected, with great staff who were most welcoming and a lovely clean room.We loved the new internal feel to the lodge even though the outside is thatched and traditional. We got a fine cooked breakfast also which set us up for a...

I booked a room here for two nights for my fiance's birthday as a surprise getaway. Lodge was extremely clean and the manager was very friendly ☺️ Unfortunately possibly the worst nights sleep from the creaky beds and uncomfortable mattress and pillows. We cancelled our second nights stay which was unfortunate as we were really looking forward to staying here....

We had the pleasure of staying here. The manager is full of knowledge and energy and takes pride in her operation of the lodge. The entire place was spotless. The bed was very comfortable. The TV did have limited channels but I did not come to Ireland to watch TV. The common area downstairs was very comfortable. There was a...

When we arrived the house looked abandoned no sign of life around. We had to go next door for the key and there was no one there,we had to go looking for a sign of life.

The reception was not typical Irish and the place was desolated on arrival, next door people running it and they were a bit uncertain who to do what when we tried to find somebody, so we were shown the bedroom immediately and off the guy went. At the end only introduced himself, not welcoming us at all. Bedroom small but...

Super comfy bed, quiet, and amazing breakfast! Great little market about 50m away! Seriously, one of the best breakfasts we had in Ireland! Small rooms (with ensuite) and great wifi. Only complaint was we had to wait until 4 pm to check in. Otherwise, perfect hostess and perfect nights stay.

The Lodge is next door to a hostel and run by the same staff. The room was okay. Tile floors in the hall and bedrooms made every noise resonant throughout. There were "dust bunnies" around the furniture but the linens and bathroom all seemed clean. The breakfast was good but with the facility full the first night of our stay,...
