Dingle Skellig Hotel and Peninsula Spa 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.
