    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!

    10am depart. 15* after a typical irish breakfast. We saw nothing of Baltimore, other than driving into the centre of the village last evening and asking for directions to the BnB, which was in a private home with very steep steps to our room. The Baltimore area is a delight, lots of little bays, islands, boats, a ship wreck in the bay from our bedroom window. Skibbereen, just drove through. Dunmanway, a town to shop in, but we didn't stop. Most wee villages are the same, ...

    The entire group met for dinner at the Marina restaurant and from there we proceeded to go to McCarthy's Pub for a night of Irish singing.

    ... that one out! Stopping at a Dingle pub for a light dinner, we were "home" in bed about 9:00.

    Saturday, after yet another wonderful breakfast of porridge with nutmeg, raisins and fresh cream, as well as a full plate of warm kippers, we packed up and said our goodbyes to An Riasc B&B ("The Marsh") and traveled the coast road by Slea Head once again just for the scenery, arriving back in Dingle about 1:00, in time to ...

    ... down to twenty, and was composed of a majority of elderly inhabitants. The Island had no electricity and since all the young people had either immigrated to the mainland or the United States, the aged population was having a hard time taking care of themselves. The Irish government provided all those living on Great Blasket with a house and land outside of Dingle. TP pointed out which stone houses were the homes of former Blasket residents. “See that house there.” ...
