    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!

First up was a young lady named Pauline Scanlon and she has a wonderful voice. Here is her web link: https://myspace.com/paulinescanlon1 The other act was a trio of gentlemen who played the Irish pipe, fiddle and guitar. I don't think they have a web site but they should. It was a wonderful evening of music. We head back to the ...

    ... day. It makes the drive that much more picturesque with the sunshine bouncing off the multi hued green mountains and hillsides. From the back, Kaeleb suddenly cries out that there's something flying around in the trunk. We pull over and open the trunk and out flies a bumblebee. We get back in, Kaeleb asks "What was it?" Chris and Elizabeth look at each other, knowing Kaeleb's fear of bumblebees and Elizabeth replies, "It was a fly."

    ... the day to see lots of cattle, horses, sheep and some very friendly donkeys. As we progressed along a surfaced road that had been "deteriorated and grassed over to soften for walkers" we came round the bend and were treated to a view of the Inch sandspit and Dingle Bay. We arrived in Anascaul after walking for 4.5 hours and surprised Brian at The Anchor B&B, he didn't expect us for another few hours so he sent us off to explore. Hanafin's Pub ...

    We asked the server at John Ashe's if there was anywhere they'd have good authentic music on a Monday night and she said Definitely - The Courthouse on Green Street just down from our B and B. Music and Craic were fabulous - we even closed the place down! Place was full of

    Headed back to my B&B around 1:30; after we all decided to call it a night.

    It ended up being a later night then I had planned, but it was memorable one! And it was the perfect way to finish off another brilliant day!
