  • Staying at Janet and Seamus' farm was a truly great experience. Their sheep farm was exploding with baby lambs when we were there. Janet and Seamus gave us an inside look into the lambing process and we even got to see one born. The scenery was only out beat by their generous hospitality. We were unfortunately under the weather for part of our stay, but Janet was always offering tea or help. Janet's breakfasts were fit for kings. So delicious and with fresh, local ingredients. The room and the whole house was beautiful. The ensuite bathroom was very nice as well. We will have great memories of staying here and experiencing this part of Ireland. We would recommend this to anyone coming to Dingle/Ireland/Europe!

  • Staying at Janet and Seamus' was one of the highlights of our 10-day trip around Ireland. Although we only spent one night there we got to experience true Irish sheep farm living.
    As many other reviews state, their home is a bit tricky to find (especially at night in the rain) but well worth it. We arrived in the afternoon and got a full tour of the sheep farm. We met the new pony and helped Seamus feed and count the sheep.
    To make sure we made the most of our short time in Dingle, Janet and Seamus supplied us with a map and recommendations for dinner. We very fortunate to have a beautiful (rain-free) sunset drive around the entire peninsula and saw breathtaking views.
    The next morning we woke up to an amazing Irish breakfast cooked by Janet and enjoyed great conversation. We were the last visitors of the season and were so grateful that they welcomed us into their home.
    This experience made our trip and it's definitely worth the trek out there. We hope we find ourselves in dingle sometime again!

  • Though Janet and Seamus's house is a bit hard to find, it's worth it. The room was beautiful and clean. Janet is a great cook. And Seamus introduced us to the sheep after breakfast. Beats a traditional B&B any day.

  • Janet and Seamus are as friendly as can be - very nice and comfortable house and room, and spectacular breakfast in the morning. It was a bit difficult for us to find initially, but our GPS is an older one and did not have their road on its Ireland map. Would recommend for anyone who wants to stay out of the touristy bustle of Dingle Town.

  • We had a bit of difficulty finding the house. Our GPS did not recognize the road we needed to turn on and the directions given were difficult to follow. Other than that the sheep farm was a wonderful experience! Seamus gave us a tour of the farm and we fed the sheep and walked through the pastures. Janet cooked us a delicious breakfast each morning. The room was comfortable and very clean. I would recommend staying here.

  • The location of Janet and Seamus was amazing. The expierence on the sheep farm was more than memorable. The scenery was picturesque. Other reviews mentioned the social interaction with the host. We did not have the same expierence, but that woud not stop us from booking the same place again. They did give us recommendations of scenic drives (which were incredible) and local pubs, but it was not a warm and fuzzy expierence.

    Make sure you have a car if staying at this place
    *slea head drive a must*

    Response from Janet And Seamus:

    Sorry you found us not "warm and fuzzy". It isn't always easy to read exactly how friendly you guests wish you to be. Some people like and chat and others like their space, and sometimes it is hard to tell.

  • The family is really nice and we were taken to the sheaps in the morning. The guest room is brand new and really clean. We also had our own bathroom. Thank you very much, Lena & Philipp from Germany

  • My 11 year old twins and I loved staying at Seamus and Jan's sheep farm. It was by far our favorite place in Ireland. The location is wonderful: in the middle of a sheep farm, in a new house, very nicely done, sitting on the top of a small country road over looking the entire valley below. Seamus was extraordinarily nice to my daughters, who only wanted to be with him and the sheep the entire 3 days. Of course he had work to do, but they didn't think about that! They were able to spend quite a bit of time with the lambs, and Seamus showed them how he trains his sheep dogs and gave them a lesson on rounding up the sheep, one afternoon. My daughters were in heaven. Dingle, of course, is famous for its beauty, but we knew nothing about the town of Dingle, which is about 5 minutes from the sheep farm and a lot of fun, as it turned out. There are tons of mountain drives one can take, interesting sites to see, but we were there for only 3 days and not that into driving, as what we wanted to do was walk. Jan gave us a few restaurant recommendations that turned out to be perfect. Delicious and wonderful ambience. (The very best local beer, by the way). Jan is a musician, and we were lucky to hear her sing the blues and play the harmonica at a pub in Dingle one evening. I forgot to mention our room and breakfast: our room was lovely, one of the nicest we stayed in during the month we were in Ireland. Spacious and clean. The dining room, where we had breakfast, was filled with morning light, we could see the sheep from the table, and Jan cooked us a delicious breakfast. Great way to start the day.

  • We loved staying at the sheep farm! The room was in great condition and after the amazing breakfast in the morning we got to go out and feed the lambs! We thoroughly enjoyed out stay and our experience was a highlight of our trip,

  • Lovely home. Great location close to Dingle, yet out of town. Quality breakfasts. I would definitely recommend a stay with Jan and Seamus.
