      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!

      ... of pubs and a couple of pharmacies, a Spar (little supermarket). This is obviously a mart town (farming). The block houses painted in soft pastels are refreshing and pretty. We keep saying that we'll have to come back. Our first real wet day, on and off, not enough to be disappointing. Arrived in Dingle around 1.30pm. Got a park on the one way Main Street, right outside our hotel, it's a real Irish pub. We're on the second floor, a door directly off the street and ...

      ... Hard to describe the scenery so will let the pictures do the talking. We arrived in Dingle and the pub was booked out. Found a very nice B&B and enjoyed dinner at a seafood restaurant. We will head around the Dingle Peninsula tomorrow morning - the place that National Geographic describes as the most beautiful place on ...

      ... we headed back out.

      We cut across to Kilmalkedar Church, again from the 12th century. It also has a cemetery that is currently used next to the old one. There is also an old sundial and other significant stone, although we don’t know why it’s important, in the yard. From there we went to Gallarus Oratory an old church from the 9th century. The design is like an upside down boat. But still the fog ...

We got to see a couple a grey nurse sharks (apparently also called sandtigers), a loggerhead turtle, sting rays, piranhas, spider crabs (which were the subject of a school project Liam did recently), penguins, and lots of different types of fish including a silver arowana (adapted to skim under the surface of the water with its fins underneath its body). Liam was fascinated with one particularly small friendly stingray in a tank ...

      ... can find a hat maker when I get home who could sew in a strap. On the other hand, who'm I kidding?

      We went on up the hill to the jewelry store that we went to the other night: Brian de Staic, a local jeweler who also has a workshop down by the harbor. I ended up getting a sterling silver necklace with a Celtic-style pendant and a pair of simple earrings. Katherine tried on a watch, but it wasn't quite right. Then we went a little farther up the hill to the competition, John ...
