      Historical Traveler Reviews Emlagh Lodge Dingle

      Great B & B!


      Three of us spent several days at Emlagh Lodge at the end of July. Our room was beautiful and comfortable, the shower was great. We had such a great view of the bay and the harbor from our window that we kept taking pictures out the window. Maggie is a great hostess and recommended a concert to us that we never would have gone to otherwise and that was a highlight of our trip. The Lodge is a short walk from downtown, definitely doable, and just the right amount of exercise after a dinner in one of the wonderful restaurants.

      Ideal location and accommodation


      If you want the perfect Location, I strongly

      recommend the Emlagh Lodge. The location and views are excellent. The lodge has excellent rooms and very clean. Our stay was made even more enjoyable by Maggie. She was very helpful and was always there for any advice you required.

      The breakfast menu was excellent with a varied selection for everyone. The fruit and yogurt breakfast was a work of art. We stayed for two nights in July 2004 and the weather was very good, but to be honest if the weather was poor we would have enjoyed the Emlagh Lodge. We left Dingle to go up to Dublin, but we wished we stayed in Dingle.

      We have no hestitation in recommending Emlagh Lodge. Thanks Maggie.

      Absolutely Brilliant!


      Our stay at Emlagh Lodge (Summer 2003) was, without doubt, the most wonderful experience. Excellent accommodation, scrupulously clean, perfect location - and Maggie was charming and genial. She made our stay really special, and we have very fond memories of that week.

      We have no hesitation in thoroughly recommending Emlagh Lodge, and hope to return very soon.

      Best B&B in West Ireland


      We went to Ireland for our honeymoon two years ago and stayed in B&B's for two weeks. This was, by far, the bast B&B in Ireland. The staff, Maggie, I believe, view, cleanliness, location, and town made us sorry to have only spent two nights. However, we will not make that mistake again next year when we go back to Ireland, we're planning three days in Dingle, at Emlagh.

      Stayed here in May. Delightful, beautiful views, quiet, convenient walking to town, good value, owner helpful.

      None Better !


      We had a fabulous time in Dingle, Emlagh House is amazing - a sea view from every window in our room - it is the cleanest (absolutely spotless), most welcoming place we have ever stayed in. Complete with friendly dog, and Maggie who made our holiday even better ! Thanks Maggie

      Absolutely one of the very best


      I have travelled to Ireland nearly annually for the last 8 years.There is no doubt that Emlagh Lodge is as well situated and as comfortable accommodation as one can find and the views are stunning. Further and most importantly,in light of other comments on this page,Maggie is an absolute delight and an extraordinarily genial hostess.My wife and I had to drive from Kilkenny to Dingle one afternoon,but we had spoken to Maggie to let her know where we were and how we were going to get there so we could give her an ETA.Sometimes, I think we should rememer that B&B accommodation is in family homes and not staffed by bellboys.Looking forward to getting back there this year!!!

      Unpleasant experience


      I took my mother and aunt on a dream vacation to Ireland. I have lived in Ireland and I travel there at least two times a year. Emlagh Lodge has the best accomodations (location, food, rooms, price) I have found in Dingle. Unfortunately, we encountered some travel delays and we were approximately 3 1/2 hours late - we arrived at 6:30 P.M. instead of 3:00 P.M. The hostess was very displeased with us and proceeded to scold us before she would let us in the front door. Emlagh Lodge has not been on my itinerary since, nor does my aunt recommend it in the travel industry. A host/hostess can make or break a stay.

      My favorite B&B in Ireland


      I stayed at the Emlagh Lodge along with my cousin and my 82-year-old grandmother on a trip that fulfilled my grandmother's lifelong dream to visit Ireland. I was absolutely thrilled with the accomodations at this beautiful B&B, and it contributed greatly to the success of our trip. The rooms are exquisite, and our hostess was wonderfully accommodating as well as a good cook. Highly recommended!

Behind us was Mount Eagle (Sliabh an Iolair) with sheep and cattle lying in green fields and the little road and its low rock walls winding in and out of its deep crevices and ravines. Small homes and farms were spread across the valleys.

      Outside the shop, drinking coffee on the patio, were three twenty-something girls ...

      We we miss our family and friends a great deal, but thoroughly enjoying the once in a lifetime trek all over Ireland. A wee bit fun, yah.

      Tomorrow is northward through Galway and to the Cliffs of Moher, one of the sights I've been most eager to visit. Love you all.

      ... some are even completely deserted, and there are less boring highways criss-crossing the landscape like ugly scars like in Britain.

      It's really quite rural around here, the roadsides filled with rolling electric-green hills, dotted here and there with old, medieval ruins and crowded with long-haired sheep tending to their lambs. Tractors are everywhere while there are very few trucks and buses.

      ... you but it is definitely something that I am not use to. We finally got back to the cottages. We did not find the person that had my wallet in town, but as soon as we got home I saw my backpack sitting in a chair. I immediately went and gave him a few pieces of my mind. Moral of the story, I went to look for my backpack and it ended up in my cottage while I went on an adventure to look for it.

When we came to a junction there was no sign so we turned right – wrong move we think. We had noticed that the hiking trail had turned right at the junction so we tried that – there were lots of hikers on the road so we thought we were on to something. When the trail went through a field we ...
