After a long day of touring, we finally arrived at Benner's Hotel in Dingle.
Checked in, unpacked …
... Another quintessential Irish touch that we experienced was a stream that flowed over the road. It was described as "quaint" by our B&B hosts. The coolest part of this adventure was Coumeenloe Beach. The beach was sheltered beside a promontory on the Atlantic Ocean. It was a white sand beach and the water would fit in better in the Caribbean than in the North Atlantic. There was also a freshwater spring that cascaded over the cliffs behind the beach and ran over the sand ...
Another day has passed and I had to really evaluate my time here. I had a facebook chat conversation with a mentor from school yesterday asking me if I was having a good time and if I love Ireland because she had been here. I told her that it was ok and she asked why just ok. I in turn asked what am I supposed to love about it. She replied that I should love the country side and views, the people, the food, the classes and the ability to see a new place ...
... encountered hundreds of puffins. Chris and I saw puffins in Cape Breton, but not this close. I could have touched one (if I wasn't so worried about falling over the edge!) I was a slow climber today pausing to absorb the sight in front of me. I was missing Chris on this adventure as I know he would have loved it. I don't think the pictures truly capture the moment, but I'll attach lots anyway so you can try to experience it.

... it was quite difficult but soon enough we ran into others who had to stop as well. We were also a little tired from the pills as well as excited to get to the top. So we would stop and have a breather and enjoy the wonderful views and the howling winds that came in-between the rocks. Eventually we came up on to a path that lead under a small stone wall and alcove and then turned into the main monastery town….which was not big at ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Dingle Benners Hotel
Perfect Hotel in a Perfect Location
Having booked this hotel quickly from Tripadvisor I knew little of what to expect. What a treat! Resort quality room, good service and the best location imaginable in Dingle.
Walk out your door to all the is convenient in town at your footsteps. Enjoy an ultra clean room, this from a discreminating traveller. Great pub. Knowledgable front desk and good breakfast. Private parking and no smoking!
Need I go on. Stay here!
Very nice hotel
Checked in for three nights in February at this hotel. I enjoyed the stay very much. Our room was spacious as well as the bathroom. We had a room in back and it was very quiet. Service in the restaurant and breakfast areas were good as well as room service and daily cleaning. The location was perfect! On Main Street, so we could walk all over town. Parking was free and around the block with a back entrance to the hotel. The mid-week rates for off season were less than the B&B's.
I will stay here again on my next visit!
My husband and I traveled to Ireland with a tour this past summer and this was our favorite hotel. It has more charm, history, and flavor than any other hotel we visited. It absolutely provided my husband with an experience he will never forget. We were fortunate to stay in one of the large bedrooms overlooking the street and while a bit noisy at times it added to the drama. We cannot wait to get back to Dingle and again Benners will be our first choice.
Stayed in Benners for one night and I must say it was one of the best hotels I have stayed in Ireland. Because of work, I stay in many different hotels around the country, though this visit was a personal one. Our rooms weren't ready when we arrived but they went out of their way to be helpful to us. When we got into our rooms we were delighted to find that they were extremely spacious (Rms 104/105)and the staff could not be friendlier to us in general. Food was great (we had a snack and breakfast the next morning)and overall I would give it 10 out of 10. Good choice if you're staying in Dingle!
Go to Dingle and stay at Benners
Just spent a week in Ireland and I strongly recommend Benners. First, you have to go to Dingle. It is much nicer in every respect than the Ring. Read Rick Steves on Dingle if you have any questions. Once in Dingle, you should stay at Benners, unless you prefer the B&B experience. The only other real hotel choice is the Skellig and Dingle has a much better location. Skelling has a pool, but Benners guest can use it for a fee, albeit one that is ridiculously high. Rooms are large and the breakfast buffet is quite good. Not Manor House 5-Star quality, but stilll quite good. Very helpful staff as well.
My family and I recently stayed at Benner's in Dingle. We picked the hotel because four of my family members wanted private rooms and Benner's could accommodate this request. We found Benner's to be a charming boutique hotel with friendly staff and nicely appointed rooms. The rooms were very clean and the staff were by far the most accommodating. Benner's is right in town which allowed us to walk about and take a break from driving.
We loved our stay at Benner's. The hotel looks like nothing from the outside, but walk inside and see how far back it goes. The food was excellent and the staff, especially the desk and bar staff, were very personable and would go out of their way for you. Would recommend this hotel ten times over.
You could easily miss this hotel from the street. Relatively small entranceway. But the layout of the hotel rambles waaay back. Very nice decor and a nifty little bar. Rooms were good, clean, older furniture, comfy bed. Service was very good and the breakfast was top notch; lots of fresh choices. This hotel is right in "downtown" Dingle clost to pubs, shops, & waterfront.
4 star? You bet!
AFter our terrible stay at another Manor House Hotel(Hibernian Hotel in Ballsbridge Dublin) This was great. It looks small from the street but it is hugh! And very comfortable. We got it on the internet , and it was actually the room it showed. The people were very nice especially in the bar restaurent. The dining room was closed for the winter, but the food in the bar was very good. They did serve a wonderful breakfast in the dining room, very filling, and it was included in the resevation.
A great experience. We stayed at Benner's in Feb of '04 and completely enjoyed our stay. Very clean, freshly maintained rooms. Nice bar area.
