I enjoyed my stay at the B&B. Perhaps owners need to address some dampness in some areas of the hallway visible on walls. Otherwise, I would have given 100%

We were very pleased with our stay. It was my Sister Katherine that chose your accomodation for us, as it was her email she gave you when doing the booking. She is good at that, as she worked in the Tourist office in Caherciveen & Killorglin for a few years.She no longer works due to ill health but she is hoping to go and stay with you some night in late April or early May. We would have no hesitation recommending Marina Lodge to our friends and relatives. Padraig and Tracy

Timo - Germany (March, 2016)
Though well situated within walking distance to restaurants and pubs, this is NOT a B&B as you would think. It's just a hotel- and a rather poor one at that. The wifi didn't work- and the hostess pretended it was a "new issue", you would have to sit in the hallway on the stairs to get wifi. The accommodations were pretty scarce- 2 tv channels Not that we were watching tv.. but still! and there was mold above the shower. Really not that impressed. The rooms were large, but completely barren and lacking any personality- one of our windows was broken and air was coming in- I tried to close it, but the window almost fell in on me as a unit. Sorry! People were nice though..

Kim - United States (March, 2016)
After receiving an email from Dingle Marina Lodge regarding check in which appeared to make the whole check in process quite a hassle for a couple who were simply touring around Ireland without a daily set schedule — we decided to stay elsewhere where we would not be held to a clock and the staff's convenience. Very unprofessional, it appeared. So we booked elsewhere and promptly sent an email cancelling our reservation with Dingle Marina Lodge. We sent this cancellation several days before we event departed for Ireland on March 5. Our reservation was for the 14th. We did promptly receive a confirmation of our cancellation. Matter closed, or so we thought. Now, back in the U.S. after two weeks in Ireland, some 9 days after the cancelled booking, we get emails from this lodge demanding payment for the cancelled booking! Claiming now that we never cancelled, they were trying to process a payment as a no-show! Thankfully, our credit card company would not authorize it as we had let them know our travel dates and clearly, we weren't in Ireland any longer. What followed were a series of tense exchanges while they continued to claim we never cancelled. On our part, we had deleted everything from them, including the original booking — so as not to clutter our travel file with non-relevant emails. Their emails were rude, demanding, and incompetent. They seemed to feel it was our responsibility to prove to them we had cancelled, rather than theirs to have a record of it! Since there had been emails from them and back from us about check in, and then the cancellation — you have to ask yourself what kind of business doesn't keep a record of these things. It is not our responsibility at this point to "prove it" — while they claim ignorance! Nor should I need to spend my valuable time trying to! I thank you for sending me this review request, as this sort of rude and unprofessional behavior makes my blood boil. So much for Irish hospitality at this place. Two points: 1 We travel all the time and know good service and professionalism. 2 I have worked in the hospitality industry for several years in the recent past — at resorts in Vail, Colorado, a state park in Custer, South Dakota, and in beautiful Santa Fe, New Mexico. No employer I ever had would tolerate this kind of conflictive communication and rude, demanding behavior from any staff member for even one guest client. They would be fired. Since this is probably the owner or managers doing this — who 'ya gonna call I then went and looked at their reviews on TripAdvisor and saw many, many complaints of rude and unprofessional behavior by the staff here. Uncooperative, unwelcoming, etc., plus shabby lodging with noisy guests and huge parking issues. Whew! So glad we did not stay! And believe me, we are not paying any phantom fee claiming we didn't cancel! That takes a lot of nerve and a complete lack of customer service skills. Pointed out in other reviews. Total thumbs down on this place.

Such an amazing place to stay, in fact my favorite place in all of Ireland. Our room had a perfect view of the harbor to see all of the fishing boats. Very clean and comfortable rooms. Thomas told us all of the great places to eat at, bars and music in town. The breakfast was amazing! I look forward to visiting again.

We thoroughly enjoyed staying at the Marina Lodge last fall. Our room overlooked the water and had two big windows that opened. We slept with both of them open even though it was late September. Our host was so congenial-introducing..us to his family and taking us to catch our bus. I can't wait to visit again!

This lodge is located at the end of the commercial district, so it's accessible but not loud. We had a large room overlooking the marina and it was wonderful. Breakfast was substantial delicious, and they had cook to order options, plus a buffet of breads, fruits, cheeses, and yoghurts. The only drawback of our room was some overhead noise in the morning. I suspect a family with children were up there running and jumping.

Breakfast was cooked to order and so delicious! Thomas and Claire were wonderful and informative.

We enjoyed the Dingle Marina Lodge B & B so much we asked to book an additional night. The location was excellent, staff were very pleasant and helpful, breakfast was awesome and our room was huge! Yes, it is right on the main street through town, but we didn't find it too noisy at night - and we did sleep with a window open. Wi-fi service was great.

We enjoyed our stay at the Dingle Marina Lodge. We were traveling with a family of four 2 adults, 2 children aged 10 and 12 plus 2 additional adults who needed single rooms and they were able to accommodate all of us. Our room was on the street right across from the Marina and although somewhat noisy during the day, it quieted down at night. The lodge is in a great location, towards the edge of town but just a short walk to all the pubs and shops. Thomas was very friendly and helpful and the breakfast was very good!

Dingle Marina Lodge is a great place to stay in Dingle. IT is right on the waterfront and in the centre of the town, so you can walk everywhere and will not need to take a taxi. It is a short drive to Dún Chaoin, from where the beautiful Blasket Islands can be seen. I would certainly stay here again and wouldn't hesitate to recommend this guesthouse. The owner was also lovely, and very helpful with dining and pub suggestions.

My wife and I stayed at the Lodge one night in May 2015. We received excellent service and had a lot of questions answered by the staff. This is a good location and we were able to walk to most of the places we were interested in. The room was quite nice and we had no issues. We also enjoyed the breakfast very much. Like a few other Irish B&Bs we stayed at, they issue a single physical key for the lock, which must be used to lock both inside and outside. If my wife wanted to stay in the room but I had to leave, I would have to lock her in, which is not safe in the case of a fire. So, not an ideal scenario and I'd recommend they change the inside lock to one that doesn't require a key. Other than that, this was a great stop and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay!

When an owner proudly says "we don't do a cooked traditional breakfast, as you must be sick of them by now", personally this is a warning. I cannot fathom why, other than to cut down on expense and effort, this wouldn't be an option. It's a B&B. I can make the choice of breakfast, which is what I am paying for. Other than that, it was all fine. Location is good.

Perfect location! Quiet yet close to everything. We parked our car and walked to all the shops and pubs. No full Irish breakfast which was fine with me but I heard a couple of people complain so I'm including it here to set expectations. There were excellent choices for breakfast and everything I tried was well prepared. Coffee and tea were perfect as well! Thomas was the host and he was very helpful. The B&B is kept locked from the outside and each guest has a key. My niece and I felt very secure! I will definitely stay here again in the future. Our room was very spacious and warmly decorated.

The owners Thomas & Katharine go out of their way at every opportunity to be helpful and to make sure you have a pleasant stay. Location as the name implies is right across from the marina so you can take a nice morning stroll on the pier before doing the town or driving into the peninsula. Ask Thomas for any local color before heading out and he'll give you tips to make your time away from the lodge as nice as your time there.

After making a booking enquiry/reservation through this B&Bs site i was later contacted by my bank to let me know a third party had accessed my account details through what the fraud squad believe is the Marina Lodges "insecure site". Out of respect for other future users of this site i contacted Dawn owner of Dingle Marina Lodge to explain what had happened. I was met by general rudeness which turned into vicious abuse upon explanation of the situation. I have never felt more threatened in my life and i urge you to find other accomadation around Dingle. I would not feel comfortable sharing a roof with this unstable person.

I was leading a group of 12 American university students, and we were "bumped" by our other accommodations three weeks before our arrival. Fortunately, someone recommended the Dingle Marina Lodge as a replacement. Dawn responded immediately to my desperate inquiry, and the accommodations proved to be perfect for our purposes. There were a variety of rooms in different configurations, all of which were clean and in excellent condition. The only drawback to the rooms was that some had only one key. The full breakfast was excellent in terms of both variety and quality, and the staff was very pleasant and helpful. The students loved the location and everything else, except for the WiFi, which was offline for hours at a time. All in all, these were very good accommodations and good value for the price.
