Dingle Way walking holiday in Ireland
Memorable parts? Meeting the local farm workers as we walked through or passed their farms...what a lot of amazing characters. Tips? Be prepared to walk quite a distance before coming across somewhere that you could buy a drink or snack. Local benefits? Most definitely as all stays were in local B&Bs, farms or small pubs, and most meals were in these places. Overall rating? One of the best walking trips we have had...great views, changing daily, friendly and interesting... (more)Denise Kibby

Kenmare B&B accommodation, Ireland
Really excellent, I've already passed the B&B details on to friends and will most definitely be returning. (more)Adrienne Egan
Excellent. The location is superb - excellent for exploring the Beara Peninsula, or heading north to Iveragh Peninsula. Kenmare is a beautiful town with lots of excellent eateries and there is stunning countryside everywhere you look. (more)Lisa Gerrard
The location was beautiful, the house stunning, the town of Kenmare a real treat, the breakfast a whole food feast and Anne's manner is a perfect balance of trust and hospitality. (more)Kate Grubb
From €40 - €60 per room per night (sleeps 2)
