Seamus and Jan gave us a very special stay in Dingle. They welcomed my wife and me on the farm with warm, open arms and gave us a unique view of what it's like to live on the Emerald Isle. Jan is both an amazing cook and musician and made sure we had frequent examples of both talents. Seamus gave us long walks through the countryside; showing us fairy rings, ruins and some of the tricks of his trade. Together they treated us to some of Dingle that we wouldn't have otherwise found ourselves.
I could fill ten reviews with praise of these two and their wonderful home but for brevity I will say this one, last thing. For a few days, we truly felt like Dingle was our home, and Jan and Seamus were our family. After traveling a bit more around Ireland, I can confidently say that only the first of those two things has changed. We look forward to our next stay in Dingle!
What a beautiful place! Our room was very clean and comfortable and we were free to come and go as we pleased. Janet and Seamus were very hospitable, taking time to answer our many questions about the farm and area. For my wife, the highlight was feeding and watching the lambs. Anyone looking to stay at a B&B in the Dingle area wishing to have a unique experience should really consider staying at the farm!
Nous avons passé 2 nuits chez Janet et Seamus. Le chambre est très confortable et agréable. La campagne environnante est superbe et séjourner dans une ferme nous a semblé une bonne approche de la vie irlandaise.
Nos hôtes nous ont semblé un petit peu froid au début mais ensuite sont vite devenus agréables, nous ont proposé un thé, conseillé plein d'endroit à Dingle pour dîner ou aller au pub, et les endroits à voir dans la péninsule de Dingle. Ils ont volontiers parlé de leur vie à la ferme, de leurs animaux.
Ils nous ont proposé de les aider à nourrir leurs agneaux c'est une expérience inoubliable! Et laissé parcourir leurs prés à pied, très agréable aussi.
Le petit point frustrant dans cette expérience aura juste été de ne pas parler suffisamment bien anglais pour discuter davantage avec eux!
This was the best place we stayed on our whole trip. Right after we arrived Seamus invited us out to see the sheep - and even feed some lambs! The room was amazing - comfy bed, nice en suite bathroom, and beautiful views of the countryside out the windows. And the breakfast was spectacular, Janet is an excellent cook. Finally, getting to see and interact with the sheep was a unique and unforgettable experience.
My husband and I cannot even begin to express how much we enjoyed our time with Janet and Seamus! (website hidden).of.the.world! The location is REAL....not easy to find and completely off the beaten track, but absolutely perfect - situated on the top of a hill, surrounded by lush pastures and rugged terrain. It was exACTly what we were hoping for. Getting to be there during lambing season was absolutely incredible - an experience we both will never ever forget. EVER. It was a dream come true to see the border collies, feed some of the lambs, watch a birth, stomp all over creation looking for ewes, and be smack dab in the middle of it all.
Although it was an incredibly busy time for them, Seamus greeted us with drinks and showed us our room. The loft was, as he said, "Just like heaven." It.was.AMAZING! My husband made a fire and we got to watch little lambs play while we drank coffee. Yup....heaven. Since we were in a self service room (it had a kitchenette,) we paid a little extra for breakfast. Another home run - Janet made up a fantastic spread - SO yummy!
They were both so incredibly gracious to us and our absolute delight with the whole experience. They're real people - hard working and busy. Nothing foo-foo here - just REAL. And it was perfect. We were VERY blessed that they shared their lives with us.
Janet and Seamus are great and we had a wonderful time on the farm. The room is welcoming and spacious with lots of nice touches. The setting couldn't be more beautiful with views in every direction and it's only a few minutes out of town. My husband even got a chance to walk around with Seamus and check out the sheep. Breakfast is spectacular!!!
We were made to feel right at home. We were shown to our room, and then invited in for a cup of tea and a Guinness. Both Jan and Seamus were helpful in recommending places to see and eat. Seamus was kind enough to show us a few walks around the area, and we were able to go with him to feed the sheep. Breakfasts were lovely, too. Absolutley beautiful area, and we were able to see and do things that we wouldn't have known about, had we stayed right in town, and with a normal B&B. They also have an absolutley beautiful self-sufficiency flat that's extremely private.
