    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!

    ... at the time. Plus the smells were inviting as usually the case for grease laden goodies!

    Watched the full harvest moon rise from our expansive window view and set our alarms for 3:15pm to get up for the lunar eclipse. Later - sleepy heads got up to see the blood moon, that seemed to be tinged in pink instead from the shadow of earth crossing in front of it. Fun and memorable tho. ...

    Our roadtrip with the Michigan girls begins. We stuff ourselves into the back of the car and hit the road. Some Irish radio, napping, and a chill ride swinging out from Dingle, back through the Ring of Kerry, all the way to Portmagee. Once we arrived in the tiny town, we stopped by the hostel, weren't able to check in yet, so we continued on. We drove the skellig ring loop - beaches, mountains, ocean. All gorgeous. Almost went to see "the ...

    ... and fun. The 2 boys, Jacob and Asher are so well behaved and keep us entertained. We are lucky to have someone on the trip with a good camera and who posts on FB so the best photos are hers! The 4 of us who are not part of the family have been made honorary cousins!
    The weather cooled off a bit and we've actually had rain. But it has always been sunny for our sightseeing which is very lucky. The locals say they haven't had a hot, sunny summer since ...

    ... so we kept going out to Brandon Point. Hiked up to a sort of ruin, R slipped and twisted his knee (oh dear) on grassy slope down. Stopped in a neat old pub with a nice friendly gal preparing - yup - seafood chowder and a toastie for us to share. R had Guinness just to ease his pain - HA! Warm tea for B.
