dingle penninsula

Message: We're also travelling in late March early April and are looking for a "not-too-outrageously-expensive" B&B in Dingle or Tralee for 3 nights.

Any suggestions on which town would be better? Any ideas on moderately priced B&Bs?

I'm curious. Does "not-too-outrageously-expensive" mean that you will be happy with a place that is merely expensive? Or are you one of those people who can't bring herself to say what you really mean, "I want a really cheap place"?

There is a place near Castlegregory that is right in between Dingle and Tralee on the north coast of Dingle looking out at the Atlantic Ocean. It is a 5 star B&B and cost no more than 2 Star. Easily the most comfortable B&B I've ever stayed at and the breakfasts are fantastic. I thought it was more comfortable than the Ashford Castle. The name you ask? The Shores. Annette O'Malley is wonderful and you'll have a great stay. We'll be ther in May for two nights.

They are also on the Town and Country site.

Have fun!

Dingle is a delightful town filled with B&B's, and much niceer than Tralee. I don't think there is such a thing there is an "outrageouly expensive" one. Milltown House is a wonderful place with fantastic breakfasts in the conservatory.

Without question, I'd choose Dingle over Tralee.
Last summer, we stayed at Clonmara B&B. Think it was 28 Euro per person per night. About a 10 minute walk from Dingle town, and located right on the harbor with knockout views from the front of the house. Large and comfortable rooms, large and well-appointed bathrooms, great breakfasts.
To locate the place, use this site: www.familyhomes.ie, click County Kerry and look on the list for Dingle.

Thanks for the great response. I've emailed a couple of places and am awaiting feedback.
Our daughter was there last June but they self-catered. Loved it!
Oh! BTW, by inexpensive, I just meant that I didn't want to spend my vacation budget on a place to crash. Not hostel cheap, but not Ritz expensive. Already done castles. Prefer something cozier.
Thanks again.

Greenmount House in Dingle is very popular - we have booked for the end of March. Hope you enjoy your trip!

marg,

I'd opt for Dingle over Tralee. The Dingle Peninsula is justifiably one of the Republic's biggest draws for scenery-seekers. The landscape is spectacular, and Irish history buffs will find much to see and do, with such attractions as Gallarus Oratory, the Blasket Islands, and Kilmakedar medieval church.

Good lodging in the Dingle area is a snap, and there are several that are especially good, including:

The Captain's House, located in The Mall, Dingle town (see homepage.eircom.net/~captigh/)

Milltown House, Dingle town (see www.//indigo.ie/~milltown/

Greenmount House, Dingle. This seems to be a favorite of many Fodorites, and with good reason. Greenmount is very well run and features absolutely yummy and creative breakfasts. See www.greenmounthouse.com

Best of luck.
