      Historical Traveler Reviews Dingle Marina Lodge

      More than we could have asked for...

      from

      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!!!

      Good little place, needs 24 hour hot water!

      from

      A pleasant and reasonably well appointed little place with sensational views (from the front rooms) of the bay and beyond.

      Plus - service, breakfasts, location (near the heart of Dingle), friendly staff.

      Minus - limited parking, hot water goes off at night (don't expect a shower early in the morning), location (near the heart of Dingle).

      Could improve by - changing bed linen daily (to be expected for the price), having 24 hour hot water.

      Tip - unless you love crowds avoid Dingle in August & ignore recommendations re restaurants, (especially a close by seafood joint reputed to be best in area. We found it exhorbitant and of average quality).

      In summary, if you have a car, it's a great base to explore the Dingle peninsula. The Connor Pass is a must see. We'd happily go back.

      Excellent Accomodations, Lovely Staff

      from

      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

      from

      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.

      Fabulous little retreat for our Weekend Away !

      from

      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!

      from

      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!!

      from

      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.

      Lovely location, bad night sleep and bad attitiude

      from

      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!

      The location is excellent, the rooms look lovely and are very spacious. But when we went to bed we were kept awake by the lovely sound of the heating boiler, which sounded like it could heat a large castle. This went on till about 1am and started at 7.45am the next morning. When I mentioned it when checking out (and I HATE complaiing and was not looking for reduction etc) the 'lovely' lady owner said that the heating is timed to go off at 9.00pm at night. I told her it hadnt and it went on till about 1am she said "NO, IT IS ON A TIMER AND WENT OFF AT 9PM". So much for miss nice lady, now that she had her money! She turned into a really nasty piece of work with some lovely lines like "what do want me to do?" "Its either that or you can have cold water" (my favourite).

      We had two rooms and both of them were extremely noisey - but if you can get a room away from the boiler and dont bring a car this place is nice. The owner isnt!!

      Our Stay At the Dingle Marina Lodge

      from

      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

      from

      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!

      Day 5 - Dingle Peninsula, Dingle Town, Adare

      ... the apex of our day that would have been fine, but we had the Dunquin point still yet to hit. We took some video and pictures ... Stared at a lot of homes wondering what they did for a living, and then stood mesmerized again by the ocean splashing against the jagged rocks. Hard not to think what those that we here hundreds of years ago we're doing.

      While those thoughts were swirling, sheep and cattle were still staggering along the very steep hillsides and I can't ...

      ... Once again, amazing, but not for me.

      We head back to clean up for dinner and head out to a local bar for some grub and music. Tonight they have a duo on the flute and guitar. They aren't bad, but we are tired so off we go to bed.

      Day 2

      Today we finish our drive around Slea Head. We are driving along and we see another beach. I didn't know that Ireland had so many beaches. This one is pretty deserted, but makes for a wonderful walk. ...

      We climb into the carriage and Julian asks if he can sit up front, the driver nods and then as we begin moving Kaeleb climbs over the seat to sit beside Julian. Chris and Elizabeth have the back of the carriage to ourselves. We gaze out at the magnificent views of the late afternoon sun. The sun is setting earlier more quickly here and we are greeted with a lovely slowly dwindling setting sun. We ride slower, less bumpy than last time, which is quite nice. The waterfall ...

      ... enough for us, he revealed the prestige; a rainbow, from end to end, right before our eyes. Between our cliff and the next, delicately balancing one end on land to our left, journeying down to the ocean below on our right, propped up by the nearby cliff and mountains far off in the background. God smiled at us. We took no pictures of our moment together, of view. The moment wasn't for our future selves, not for our friends and family, but ours. That divine ...
