It was an absolute delight to stay with Muireann, her husband Danny, and the rest of her family. After our arrival they took 45 minutes to teach us about Dingle, the attractions/restaurants/bars worth going to (and those to bypass). The room and bathroom were very spacious, and the breakfast was fantastic. I would highly recommend
I had a really lovely stay with Muireann and her family. I was made feel completely at home. I was down for the walking festival. Muireann brought me into the staring point of the first walk as I had arrived late. Muireann was so friendly and welcoming that I felt so at home and nothing was a problem.I had a lovely stay in Dingle and a large part of this was my stay at Muireann. Their home is aptly named "Retreat". The house is as you see on the photos , very comfortable and warm with beautiful views of the blissfully quite countryside. The house is a lovely walk into town with views of Dingle Bay. I couldn't recommend Muireann highly enough and would gladly stay at The Retreat again.
One of the best places here on airbnb I've stayed at so far - Muireann and her family have been so amazingly welcome and made us feel right at home from the first minute. The location is a lot closer to Dingle than we thought (a 15-20 minute walk / hike up, easy walk even at night), the views from the house are stunning and most of all - the breakfast with eggs from the garden, homemade soda bread and homemade jams was brilliant. I hope we can go back very soon - in the meantime I'd recommend Muireann wholeheartedly as a host!
Dingle is fantastic and the place is ideally located when you have a car. Muireann and her family are very adorable even though we didn't get the chance to spend some time with them.
The room is great, calm, warm and very cosy.
Great ++ : fresh eggs from the garden and home made soda bread for our breakfast.
Great place to stay, location was perfect with Dingle being a 15 minute walk away. Muireann and her family made us feel extremely welcome and gave great advise on where to eat/drink, walks and areas to visit! Would definitely stay again.
Muireann was an excellent host! She made us feel right at home! The location to the town of Dingle couldn't get much better either! The room was large and welcoming and bathroom was huge and clean! One of the best sleeps on our trip! We only wish we could have stayed longer!
Muireann and her family were absolutely wonderful hosts! She was easy to communicate with, incredibly helpful, and a joy to chat with. The home and room are perfect. We had our own room en suite plenty big enough for my husband and myself, and a gorgeous large kitchen area to enjoy her delicious breakfast and cups of tea. Location was great too- definitely close enough to walk to the town center, about 15 minutes. Their dog, Lily, was a highlight as well! 110% recommend staying with Muireann and her family in Dingle!!
I'm living in Dingle for the past 17 years and love the area. I am a fluent Irish speaker. I have 3 children and we love going trecking and beach walking whenever we can. I love good local food and enjoy cooking.
