Fodor's Review

This rambling modern hotel's setting on Dingle Bay offers great views of the water, notably from the restaurant and the spa's outdoor hot tub. The focal point is a beehivelike central structure, intended to echo local clocháns (prehistoric huts), opening on to an octagonal reception area with wood cladding, contemporary stained-glass doors, and original paintings. Modern, pale-wood furniture and bold fabrics adorn the spacious rooms, which are in separate wings

and mostly have sea views. The Peninsula Spa offers hydrotherapy and a relaxation suite. Floor-to-ceiling windows in the Coastguard restaurant look out over the bay and, as you'd expect, the specialty here is seafood.
