This was the best place that we stayed in our whole entire trip to Ireland which included 13 cities. The couple that runs this place are very sweet and accommodating. The room was great, the location was great, the food was amazing! If you are in Dingle this is the ONLY place to stay. You will love it. Thanks again...

This place way very nice and in the center of the city. Everything in town is accessable by walking. There is no assigned parking but we never had trouble finding a parking place on the street that is free. If stairs are an issue you may want to request a lower floor. Nice Irish breakfast available.

This B&B is fantastically comfortable, affordable and has GREAT customer relations. My girlfriend and I felt very welcomed and our room was incredible. Great location, great breakfast (we had to take an early bus and missed the 2nd breakfast but they backed us up some fruit and muffins!) Great stay!

The location of the Lantern Townhouse was absolutely perfect - in the center of it all! The family that owns it is so great!!! While checking in, without me asking, they recommended some of the best restaurants and pubs to visit for the night. We did as they suggested (dinner at Doyles and the pub right down the street), and...

Katherine and Thomas were gracious hosts. We had a lovely room overlooking the street, which in any other town might not have been so pleasant, but everything is just so pretty in Ireland, especially Dingle! Breakfast was good, although different from the other B & B's we stayed in, it was still good. We had Belgian waffles, a welcome treat!...

The Lantern Townhouse is located in the city centre (which is a plus). If you're by car, there is a free parking just in front of it. The location is nice, but nothing exceptional. The room we had was quite nice, on the first floor. It was renovated as for the furniture, but the bathroom is still old (I personally...
