Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • 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!

  • My wife and I could only stay with Janet for a short time. Janet and her family made us feel welcome and provided us with helpful information and an amazing breakfast. The location is about a 10 minute drive from downtown and is a truly rustic setting. I think this would be a great location to just relax for a few days with the occasional trip to town.

  • Gracious hosts, lovely breakfast...warm and hospitable. We loved our stay. Seamus gave us a great morning walk through the paddocks to check on the sheep, and shared some of the history of this area answering our many questions. Janet with her musical and artistic background was great in sharing the Dingle history and shared enthusiasm and help in our planning. We will come again one day!! Thank you for your warmth and hospitality!

  • Staying at the sheep farm was a wonderful experience! Janet and Seamus were great hosts and made my friend and I feel at home. The breakfast was freshly prepared each morning and served in a beautiful sun room looking out onto the farm. The bedroom was spacious, clean, and very comfortable. There was also original artwork and woodwork throughout the house that added to the experience. We were able to go out on a walk through the fields to feed the sheep with Seamus and Floss (the border collie). We thoroughly enjoyed this walk and Seamus giving us a little insight into sheep farming! Thanks again for a wonderful stay.

  • Jan and Seamus were very nice and friendly. Their home was beautiful, warm and comfortable. We walked through the fields with the sheep, explored the land a tiny bit before heading into town for a bite to each and some music. Jan gave us some great ideas as to where to go in town and she was right on. Our room was very clean and comfortable, beautiful views out our window. In the morning Jan cooked us a delicious breakfast and served us out in the sunroom, with music playing and views of sheep and ducks we enjoyed every moment. Unfortunately we had to get moving early and didn't get to enjoy more of the farm, but hopefully one day we shall return.

  • Janet and Seamus were so wonderful - from the fantastic Irish breakfast, to the beautiful and very clean room - we appreciated all the details and their friendly hospitality. We loved walking around the farm in the morning and greatly enjoyed all there was to do around Dingle - we will definitely stay with them again if we return to the area!

  • My father and I stayed with Jan and Seamus for one night. Their home is absolutely beautiful. Warm, cozy, and the bed was so comfortable! I recommend anyone visiting Dingle to stay with Jan and Seamus.

    The sheepfarm was an absolute delight. I went for a walk with Seamus in the morning to do the rounds with all of the sheep. We walked around the mountainside for over an hour, it was a great peaceful experience.

    I plan to come back here and stay with Jan and Seamus next year. The breakfast the next morning was delicious!

    Thanks Jan and Seamus!

  • My husband and I stayed at Janet and Seamus' sheep farm for two nights and LOVED it! Seamus, very kindly showed us around his farm, so we had a lovely walk in the morning, Janet cooked a great brekkie each morning. We were only 5 km's out of Dingle, but it was so peaceful and beautiful. The room was great and the hosts were lovely. Recommend to anyone! Thank you both for a lovely stay.
