Pros: The Emlagh House is located 5 walk minutes away from the lovely little town of Dingle. Although we booked a regular double bed room with carpark view, we decided to upgrade for the "Blackberry Suite" for just 20€ surcharge. The larger king size bed and the spectacular view to the garden with the bay and mountains in the back was just breathtaking. The excellent breakfast a la carte and a very friendly and helpful staff completed our perfect stay in this Hotel. We love to come back !
Cons: Complaining on high levels might be a German habit, but the king size bed could be a little longer than 190 cm. and please turn on the washing machine and dryer later than 7 am, as you can here that in the whole house...

I only wish that we had stayed longer. It is a little out of the beautiful town of Dingle, but well worth the drive. As soon as you walk in the door you feel this overwhelming sense of 'home'. The rooms were clean and comfortable. The food was wonderful. We would definitely recommend this place and would go back in a heartbeat.

Awesome location if you're doing Skellig Michael. It's literally across the street from boarding all the boats. The family-run business was amazing. I think they owned the B&B, the gift shop and the bar. The B&B was a charming home inside, very clean and had character. The lounge area was cute. Our upgraded room had a Jacuzzi, which was helpful after Skellig Michael, because your muscles will be sore! I also want to note their soaps were amazing (hope they keep using it!) BeeKind was the brand, and it's Irish honey and lemongrass and other herbs. It was so good, it was the first time I ever asked a hotel if I could get more of its soap. I was willing to buy a bottle, but they gave me some free samples to take home. Their restaurant had good food and again loved their decor! It was all boat themed of course, and they had lots of ship models, which I loved. The gift shop had a lot of unique gifts compared to all the gift shops in southern Ireland. To top it all off, the town of Portmagee is adorable. Plus, you must go see the amazing cliffs of Kerry about 2 km away (few minutes drive from the hotel). It is stunning. I personally think it's way better than the Cliffs of Moher, which is a major tourist attraction. The cliffs of Kerry (near Portmagee) is lesser known so there's not many people there, and the cliffs are just gorgeous. We were there for 1 night. The town is small so I think the main thing to do there is Skellig Michael, walk around town, do the cliffs of Kerry.
Pros: The friendly staff was amazing. They did a lot to accommodate us and upgraded our room because it wasn't busy. Awesome location!
