... to the vans to have coffee before setting off for lunch in the pub, recommended by the site owner, (who coincidentally also owned the pub)! We walked the regulation Irish 1.5km to Ballydavid and reached the village at about 12 noon and found two pubs, which were both shut! There were two chaps, one up a ladder, painting up the old Coastguard Station. They are ...

Saw the sleeping giant (from Irish children book) and then headed back to Dingle for dinner at a Chinese restaurant and then music at John Benneys pub. Great day or should I say another great ...

Starting last night I decided that this is the only chance I get to make a difference in my time here, I have to stop hiding in my shell and get out and do things that I would not do. I can take responsibility for the work due for class, but here I cannot allow it to consume me. Step one: do not worry. Last night I had to ...

One with a heart-condition and one who fell (as I type this now in Dingle on 9/12, the owner of Dingle Cottage tells us that they are likely to close down tours on Skellig soon because of the risks). It is very much far away from any civilization and the tour guides there live on the rock for 2 weeks on and 1 week ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Dingle Marina Lodge
We absolutely loved Dingle Marina Lodge! They were more helpful than we could have ever expected from anyone and by the end of the trip, we felt like we were friends with those at the B&B. We got engaged while we were in Dingle and they did everything from helping me choose where to propose to giving us a congratulatory bottle of champagne. The breakfast there was amazing and the rooms were incredibly comfortable and convenient. We were able to book all of our activities through Dingle Marina Lodge and they were more than happy to help us. It's in the perfect location in Dingle, with the farthest attraction in town being no more than a 5 minute walk, (make sure to go to Murphey's icecream!) We stayed in several other B&B's in Ireland, and Dingle Marina Lodge was BY FAR the best and most endearing. We felt like we were home there. Thanks to everyone there and we'll be seeing you at our 5th anniversary!!!
A pleasant and reasonably well appointed little place with sensational views (from the front rooms) of the bay and beyond.
This beautiful, trendy, wonderful bed and breakfast is on the main street in Dingle Harbour, right across from the Marina. The rooms are very large (by European standards) the bathrooms huge (by European standards)...Very clean, fresh towels and linens daily, lots of hot water..... but the most magnificent thing of all was the staff... so friendly and helpful. Breakfast daily was absolutely amazing. Your choice of various cold cereals, with fresh fruit and yogurt, tea, coffee, juices, milk, fresh soda bread and home made toasted bread...and that's just to start...then you have a choice of around 9 or 10 other hot breakfasts on the menu ...from a full irish breakfast to oatmeal with Baily's Irish cream...... Awesome! I would highly recommend this B&B to anyone staying in Dingle...we stayed a week. Oh and there's free parking available as well....Wonderful.
Comfortable, clean and quiet
When I was in Dingle 22 years ago I stayed at a B&B on the waterfront. When I was planning my family's trip to Ireland, I wanted the same experience. Picked the Marina Lodge online, and was delighted with every aspect of it. It's near John Benny's, a neat pub with music nightly, and, of course, it's on the waterfront. We had two rooms that were very comfortable and clean, and the breakfast was cooked to order. If I have the pleasure of returning to Dingle, I will stay here again.
This was our 2nd time to stay in the Marina Lodge. This Bed & Breakfast is for anyone who loves a good breakfast; Irish or continental, stimulating conversation with guests at breakfast time with peaceful surroundings and a spectacular view of Dingle Bay. This was the perfect retreat from work for us as we needed to escape the stress and strain of our busy schedules. The staff could not do enough for us; any minor problems were taken care of instantly as our toddler kept staff and us extremely busy. The B&B is right across the road from the Marina where all the boats leave to bring you to see Funghi the Dingle Dolphin, the Blasket Islands and many more attractions. The B&B is literally 2 minutes walking distance from the Dingle Bay Aquarium and the best Sea Food Restaurant in Dingle itself "Out of the Blue". A little tip when you book accomodation here ask for Room 11 or Room 14, these are the best rooms in the B&B (I'm sure they are all fabulous) but these rooms are big and great when you have kids and have fabulous views especially Room 14. Many thanks to Dawn and her staff we had another great time even if it was only for our little weekend retreat from the hustle and bustle of Dublin.
Warm welcome, again!
I stayed at the Lodge for the second time, because I enjoyed the first so much. Dawn, the owner, is a very nice and helpful lady, who was willing to welcome us even if we had arrived a little late. The location is superb: the Ocean World is next door, the Marina is just in front of the house, and the town centre is only a 5-minute walk! The rooms are very spacious, clean and tidy! A room in which you really feel comfortable! But the best is the breakfast!!! The menu is rich: and you can have whatever you fancy as nice breakfast. I really enjoyed my second stay at Dingle Marina Lodge, and I hope I can soon return for more pleasant days in the future. I can warmly recommend this lovely place to everybody who plan a few days in Dingle!
Excelent stay, nice breakfast, friendly staff!!
I and my husband were staying in Marina Lodge for two nights. Location was very good, a selections of shops, pubs and restaurants were just 150 meters away . We found our room specious, very clean and comfortable. Staff was friendly and helpfull, we got lot of information about local activities, the most beautifull places in Dingle town, from the owner of this B&B.
We really enjoyed our stay at Marina Lodge.
Was looking forward to a nights stay in Dingle and had read good reviews about this place. On booking the lady (owner) was very charming and I got the "we have 2 deluxe rooms with marina views that Ive put aside for you" and all was well. Then we arrived! The parking that they had said they had, was only 5 spaces (there are 10 - 12 rooms in the place i think) so I was told to park across the road, which I did. On the way back to the B&B that night we noticed the place was a clamping area and when we enquired again we were told we'ld have to get up before 8am and put money in the meter! Not very convenient!
Our Stay At the Dingle Marina Lodge
We stayed there for two nights and its a fantastic location right on the waterfront only two minutes walk from the centre of town. its excellent value for very high standards with very friendly staff.
Beautiful place to stay,really close to the town
I would really recommend this B&B in Dingle. We rented a one bed apartment for 2 nights (for only €35 per person per night). It was clean, bright and we had great privacy for the weekend.
For great value in a convenient location, I really recommend this place!
