Greenmount House Review

More like a boutique hotel than a B&B, the combination of comfort and elegance in the lobby sets the tone, as do the wonderful views of the town and harbor out the windows. This modern B&B is a short walk uphill from the town (turn right at the roundabout beside the hospital before entering the town center). Guest rooms are spacious, with well-appointed bathrooms. Beige carpets blend in with pale oak country furniture and crisp white bed linen, and there are sofas and armchairs angled to enjoy the spectacular sunset over Dingle Harbor. Proprietor John Curran is a mine of information while wife Mary is known for her baking and excellent breakfasts. Who can resist the oatmeal topped with Irish Mist liqueur?

    Great location

    Location is excellent. It's an easy walk to town. Easy to find on the main road. Rooms are spacious and quiet. The view of the cows in the field outside our window and the bay beyond is fantastic. Didn't really mind the housing development just beyond the field. Breakfast was outstanding.

    Greenmount House Review

    We had a beautiful room with a balcony overlooking the water. Huge with every convenience you could want---one of the best, and most comfrotable of our trip.

    We loved the breakfast room looking out at the bay, with a menu to please everyone. Delicious made-to-order choices along with a buffet of fruits, breads, and sweets really set you up for the day.

    A nice touch was John (owner) going around pouring hot coffee ans chatting with the guests. He and Mary have this B & B thing down pat. It was a pleasure to stay there and we will return.
