Great music, gorgeous scenery, friendly people

... We are finding that the enjoyable days now seem to focus on driving around and looking at the country side. You don't have to drive very far to find something to look at. Every now and then you come across a saying that seems to describe where you are in life. Well today at breakfast we found one:

"Twenty years from now, you will be more disappointed by the things you didn't do then by the things you did. Sail away from the safe harbour. Explore. ...

Better weather than expected in Ireland

... Moher were a right far drive, we opted to make the trek. Sam drove well on the wrong side of the road, though the Irish have a boldness of driving incredibly fast on two-way streets no wider than our love-seat at home. We stood our ground, or rather, we drove into the yards of many that had the misfortune of being on the left hand side of our car. We saw signs for castles everywhere along the way, making it clear how there were so many kingdoms ...

... Away.  found a nice little pub for lunch, staffed by one guy and one kid. had about 6 tables. Nice people.  since Tom was from Chicago, the bartender asked if that was where the recent hurricane was???

... Monastery, which was active from the 6th to the 12th century. For centuries, the only visible part of the monastery was a stone pillar that stuck up a few feet above the ground. Then in the mid-70s, an archeological dig uncovered an entire settlement that included several dwellings and a small church, as well as a graveyard. The monastery actually came well after the settlement was originally built ... in about 500 B.C.

Farther on, we visited the Gallarus ...

DINGLE. tee hee

... scary? I secretly wonder what he’d do if I leaned over and pocked him with my finger, or kicked him, or kissed him, or stepped towards him. Hell, ANYTHING.

Making our beds we wander around Dingle tee hee for a while and I found another very special thing for mom for Christmas and the BEST PRESENT EVER for my darling brother for Chritmas (Yes, I know it is Aug, this is when I start my Christmas shopping)

I also buy a bottle of Irish Whiskey that is made here and special ...

    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!
