Comfort-rich guesthouse on the shores of Dingle Bay
Emlagh House looks every bit the old-time country house. Inside, you'd swear the paintbrushes were only put away yesterday – everything in this impeccably groomed house is laundry-fresh.
Know It All
Hit the Spot
On the edge of Dingle, with sweeping bay views.
Come here for...
• Lashings of creature comforts without a hair out of place • All the attractions of Dingle on your doorstep • Waterside walks almost from the front door
There's a spacious lounge for tea and cakes on arrival, an honesty bar, a piano and a giant chess set.
Good to know
Skip the tourist boats and go dolphin-spotting from the shores.
Luxurious rooms come with half-tester beds, fa ireplace, free wi-fi and TV/CD player. Some also have a terrace.
We liked the passion-perfect Fuschia room – a riot of cerise, purple and gold, with a canopy bed.
Eat & Drink
Only breakfast is served, but Emlagh House definitely gets our historic breakfast award. The house speciality is owner Marion’s signature ham and cream baked cheesy eggs, as well as the traditional full Irish. If you can resist the aroma coming from the kitchen there are plenty of lighter options to choose from: freshly baked soda bread and crumbly scones, freshly squeezed orange juice, homemade muesli or fish that come straight from the sea to the stove. Breakfast here will certainly see you through till evening – and did we mention the views? Gaze out at Dingle Bay while you munch.
Breakfast is served until 10am
If getting up early is too much, breakfast can be delivered to your room.
See & Do
Dingle's Slea Head peninsula is one of the loveliest places you’ll ever see and offers a wealth of activities. Swim with the local dolphin (preferably in a wetsuit), go fishing or enjoy bracing coastal walks. Keep in shape with a round of golf or some arm-in-arm tramping around the bay. Take a day trip to tranquil Blasket Island – just ask your hosts for a picnic lunch.
If all those cooked breakfasts are threatening to take their toll, there is a spa hotel 500 yards away.
Dingle Bay plays host to boat races and a regatta – so find your sea legs.
For some more restrained entertainment head off to the film fair and check out the latest releases.
