A homey, comfortable, friendly spot to lay our heads, outside of the bustle of Dingle Town. An Riasc was clean, friendly, and accommodating, with cozy rooms, a wonderful home made full breakfast, and lots of help and suggestions about what to do and see in the area. Couldn't have been happier!

We stayed a couple of nights and if we make it to Dingle again we will try to stay again. Wonderful family. Very good hosts. Very helpful and informative. Irish is spoken as the first language in the home but they are all fluent in English so communication is not a problem, but you can gain some understanding of the...

We were looking forward to this stop along the Dingle Way and we weren't disappointed. The hostess was welcoming and humorous, the food was just as delicious as they promised, and I was given one of the best sandwiches I've ever had in my complementary bag lunch. A great nights rest in a beautiful location.

My daughter and I were so looking forward to our 3 night stay at An Riasc based on the glowing reviews here. We arrived at the expected time and when nobody answered the door we tentatively entered the hallway. Still nobody. We called out, still no response. My daughter entered the kitchen and with that, the owner (we presumed) came...

Denise was such a warm and welcoming host and her house was gorgeous. The rooms were so nice with really nice touches and amazing views (was also the nicest hairdryer I used in Ireland). I only had one night there and hope I can return. Dingle is such a beautiful peninsula with great sites (like the Blasket Centre) and staying...

This could not have been a more positive experience. The room was immaculate with great attention to aesthetics, the surrounding countryside mind-blowingly beautiful, and the host, Denise, was warm, kind and totally hilarious! Getting there was no problem, with the directions provided, and our only regret was that we could not stay longer. We got to choose breakfast from an...

My wife and I planned our Ireland trip around the time of the Dingle Food Festival in early October 2015. While all of the hotels and B&Bs in the town were booked, we found a place just west of dingle in ​An Riasc. We weren't sure what to think of it at first, but we are extremely glad we booked...

What a lovely stay! The hospitality, cleanliness, coziness, the views, Margie going out of her way to make sure we had a splendid stay, Denise's warmth, delicious breakfast, water and chocolates in the room, etc. I can't say enough about this fantastic bed and breakfast!

This B & B is located 11 -12 km outside of Dingle - off a truly beaten path - very poorly lit with narrow scary road. So, watch out for your car! The room was comfortable but very small.

Dear Mrinal I am disappointed you did not feel this stay lived up to your expectations and that you felt ‘forced’ to stay here but at no time do we take our guests for a ride as you state and I am horrified to be labelled as such: we pride ourselves on quality and memorable experiences as you can see...
