      Every last detail was perfect. The bed was like HEAVEN on earth. The bathroom was nice than the bathrooms at the Ritz. Everything...and I mean EVERYTHING was perfect. Don't stay at a 5 star hotel -stay here. This is better in so many ways...

      ....The breakfast was made-to-order and to die for...fresh fruits, pancakes, toasts, breakfast bruschetta....dare I say more.

      Historical Traveler Reviews Greenmount House Dingle

      Wonderful B&B with fabulous breakfasts

      from

      My mother and I just returned from a 10-day trip to Ireland. The 2 days in Dingle were fantastic and made so much better by the first class accommodations at the Greenmount.

      We stayed in one of the new superior rooms located upstairs and we had a balcony with a fabulous view of Dingle Bay. The room was spacious and bathroom was very nice.

      The breakfast was absolutely some of the best food I have had at a B&B, and I have stayed at quite a few.

      My only regret is we didn't stay in Dingle longer!

      The best in Dingle

      from

      This is an elegent, immaculate, relaxing place to stay. We were close to the town, but far enough from the noise that we had some of the best sleep that we have ever gotten at a B&B. The breakfasts are sensational--we'd like to stay enough nights to try everything on the menu! We'll definitely return.

      Rick Steves is dead on

      from

      Dingle is marvelous. Just back from a 2-week trip to Ireland and our 3 nights in Dingle was a highpoint. Charming, friendly town surrounded by great views.

      Rick Steve's guidebook is absolutely dead on on Dingle. We stayed at Greenmount House and loved it.

      Don't miss the Blasket Island Heritage Center.

      Tall ships over breakfast

      from

      Mary's French toast with maple syrup is an absolute dream! Breakfast at Greenmount alone is worth a return visit to Dingle! The food is almost matched by the great view of the harbour; we watched the tall ships sailing into Dingle through John's binoculars which he quickly produced for us as they rounded into the harbour.

      The bedroom was extremely comfy, the only downside was that our bathroom was a bit on the small side.

      Very much looking forward to our return trip to Greenmount already - hopefully for much longer next time!

      Wonderful

      from

      Stayed for 2 nights in 2001. I didn't want to leave and would love to go back and stay there again!

      Wonderful Retreat

      from

      Beautiful setting. Comfortable, well-appointed rooms. Gracious and accomodating hosts (John & Mary Curran). Best breakfast in Ireland (or perhaps anywhere, for that matter!). Perfect place to relax after an exhilarating drive through the Connor Pass. I've stayed here twice & my adult children have been back at least three times. Great place to start or end your trip (about 2-3 hours from Shannon, depending on your route).

      A Great Place to Stay

      from

      We stayed at Greenmount House for 2 nights in 2001 and are looking forward to 3 nights in 2004. It was the nicest place we stayed. The breakfast was wounderful and the room was excellent. What a view!

      Dingle is our favorite place in Ireland. Great shops, pubs, restaurants and golf. If oyu go to Ireland, go to Dingle and stay here.

      A double rainbow view!!

      from

      Dingle and the Greenmount House would be first on our next trip to Ireland. This B&B feels like an elegant Inn where everything was perfectly designed and maintained. The view of the harbor from our little terrace was breathtaking. Breakfast was extensive and also elegant. Imagine, a B&B with not only a buffet but a large menu as well. We were here for 2 nights and were sorry to leave.

      Favorite town in Ireland

      from

      Spent two days in Dingle staying at Greenmount house with my parents in May, 2003. Of our travels (Dublin, Waterford, SW Cork, Dingle, and Cong), we liked Dingle the best.The peninsula is beautiful and the history is extraordinary. Particularly liked, was the Blasket Island Heritage Museum. The town itself is quaint with great restaurants and very friendly people. The Global Village restaurant is excellent. Dollar for dollar, the best meal we had in Ireland by a good margin. Traditional music can be found in many of the pubs at night.In sum, if you go to Ireland, spend at least 2 days in Dingle. Also, pick up Rick Steve's book if you plan to go. It is a great, detailed resource for the area. We agreed with most of his information on the area.

      Adored this gorgeous haven!

      from

      Greenmount House is THE place to stay in Dingle. Our room, #11, was in the picture on their website. We had a gorgeous balcony view of Dingle harbour and town below, and the hills in the distance to our right. There was a huge skylight above an elevated maroon couch that we could fully open for warm breezes in the afternoon (we went in April 2003 and it was surprisingly warm and sunny). We had a mini-fridge, a coffee/tea maker and a blow dryer attached to the wall. We would go to the local grocer at night and bring home snacks to store in the fridge: Kerry red cheddar with crackers and Coke Cola, which was ideal. The bed was orthopedic-very cozy with a huge closet full of more blankets. The bathroom was a bit small, but had lotions and toiletries and an abundance of those huge comfy white towels you find everywhere in Ireland. There is a TV (a must-have for us!) and a modern CD player. Magazines were in the drawers and there were lounge chairs to sit outside on the balcony and take in the trade winds. Breakfast consisted of a buffet table and a menu with an array of choices which were delicious. The walls are sound-proof-we couldn't here anyone else, and the staff is attentive and diligently tries to be seamless. We could walk down to town easily and were given a key for our room and the backdoor for late-night entries.Dingle has a very good selection of food. Be sure to enter through Conners Pass-a very dramatic mountain-hugging drive! We would stay here again in a heartbeat-a suberb bed and breakfast!

      We started off early this morning to begin our trek around the Ring of Kerry. Once again, we are going to run out of adjectives to describe the beauty of the landscape that we encountered today. Even the beautiful pictures do not do it justice! Hills, rivers and seas are all gorgeous. The hills are so green.

      After about an hour or so, we …

We realized that they were trying to get the handsome Irish lad who worked there into the background of their photos -- and maybe the foreground too! When he wasn't looking they would turn their heads to watch him walk by and then giggle some more.

      Inside the shop, a customer named Maureen and a clerk named Kathleen were laughing and talking sometimes in English and sometimes in Irish. They were laughing and ...

A lot depends on whom is telling the story such as a British version which implies that most deaths were caused by typhus and fever without mentioning starvation. The whole story must include that the massive death toll in Ireland (between ...

      ... the road drive slowly, and although I initially enjoyed the freedom of driving without someone hanging up my ****, some people are just ridiculously slow. And what makes it worse is that very few people will let you pass, making it extra hairy for us because our car doesn't have a lot of grunt.


      Unlike Britain, the Republic of Ireland uses the metric system, so we're back to km/hr.

      Our classes are becoming more interesting and more difficult. They are still the most relaxed of all the courses I have taken in law school, which may contribute to how much I enjoy them, but with all our other activities it can be challenging to keep up with the reading. Not to mention, the jet lag. Yesterday I fell asleep in an armchair after dinner. Tiffany came over to visit, and when the door slammed shut I work up with a start and kicked my glass of wine off the coffee ...
