There is a full kitchen but we serve breakfast, lunch and dinner in the pub if you are taking a break from cooking ! If you are a traditional music fan you are in a great place here ! Also we are fluent Gaelic speakers .. We can get by with our French too ! The pub has a police badge display we add to all the time if you have one from your area , or similar ones like Fire Dept etc. bring them with you! The local Creans Beer is a big favourite with us , and this year we have a new Whiskey ( or is that Whisky?! ) section in the bar ..
Note : There are two showers , on is attached to the main double bedroom and is a straight forward dial type . The other is an electric shower and the switch is on the linen cupboard at the top of the stairs . It is hot automatically. The hot water switch is also in this cupboard and has a sink setting and a bath setting. If the heating is on the water will be warm so the water will get pretty HOT if you choose to switch on the water heating too. YOu may find that you don't need it .
Ther are plenty of board games in the living room , and also an iron and ironing board , Upstairs there is a hair drier and shampoo and body wash and toothpaste .
If you feel like lighting a fire please get fuel in the supermarket or fuel merchants ( unless there is some in the place already which may be the situation in winter )
Strip bed linen on the day you leave. Place glass in glass recycling bins .

Return the keys to the bar if possible but otherwise leave on the inside of the door . We may not be there yet on the morning you leave if its before 10 am !
but mainly : Enjoy your time in Dingle !
We had a wonderful stay in Dingle at John Benny's cottage. The cottage was clean and spacious and quiet. There are 2 bedrooms upstairs so this cottage would be perfect for a family or 2 couples. The location was great. We could walk to a restaurant and stop in at John Benny's pub to listen to authentic Irish music. The cottage even had a washing machine for laundry. John Benny was very friendly and welcoming. I would recommend this for a stay in Dingle.
John Benny & Eilís's cottage was the perfect home base for a holiday in Dingle. They were friendly and welcoming. The cottage was spacious for four adults, with all modern conveniences, and everything worked well. The location is amazing...literally steps from everything in the town, yet quiet and secluded, with pastoral landscapes out the back window of sheep, meadows, and herons. There is a lovely private garden with table and chairs to relax in. The back garden gate is beautiful and leads to the meadow and a private path down to the town and harbor. Another bonus, the pub! Eilís was playing the night we arrived, wonderful traditional Irish music and great food and drink, literally steps away! We will be back!
Our stay in Dingle was wonderful. The apartment was a great place and the pub and music of John Benny & Eilís were great experiences. We loved it : )
Eilis welcomed us and showed us the ropes. She and John were available at the pub if we had ever needed any help. The cottage is in a fantastic location, set back from the main road running along the harbour. We loved the space and privacy.
We had the most beautiful two nights in dingle staying at John and Eilis. The accommodation is conveniently located and right next to John's pub with music and great food. High recommendations to stay there and enjoy the beautiful little home in the heart of dingle.
Sehr schöne Unterkunft und optimale Kommunikation und Organisation durch die beiden Gastgeber. Ruhe und Abgeschiedenheit und dich mittendrin in Dingle. Vielen Dank
Eilis and John were wonderful..A totally wonderful experience. Stopped into the pub when we arrived to grab the keys/"check in", got shown around the house and settled in for our (website hidden)'s a great house and in a lovely location for staying in Dingle, would recommend to anyone. We had a warm fire going every night, and you can't beat the Fish and Chips at the Pub!
