We met up with Jan at a music session she hosts in a courtyard in Dingle. We decided to stay and explore the town rather than follow her back to the B&B. We ended up staying until darkness fell, but followed her GPS coordinates to find the B&B. However, the Garmin GPS we had only goes to 4 decimal places, and the coordinates she gave went to 5 places, and rounding didn't quite work! We ended up pulling into a farmhouse which was clearly not hers. Then we drove past another one before finally catching sight of her gabled roof (thank goodness for the long days in June!) Might be an idea to mention it's the 3rd house along the road, and is the only one on the right.
We found Janet to be a most interesting host and we talked about music a lot! She sang some while we were there, accompanying herself on guitar and playing harmonica.
She took us to feed her orphaned lambs and we met one of her dogs. Felt right at home there!
She also gave us good travel advice and we were able to use the internet with no problems - despite the rural setting.
We didn't spend much time with Seamus but he was also very pleasant and always had a smile for us.
Staying with Jan and Seamus was quite the treat for 2 city folks. We really enjoyed the special attention they both gave us in learning how their farm with the sheep was run...special treat was feeding a couple of the lambs. Jan put on quite the feast..she is quite the host and did a great job playing her guitar...wonderful experience, comfy room and wonderful city
What a wonderful time we had!!
Janet and Seamus are fantastic hosts and our time with them was just wonderful. It was a real joy to stay in such a clean and wonderful family environment. The drive around Slea Head was so much better than the Ring of Kerry. Thank you so much Janet, Seamus (and of course Patrick).
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!
