We just spent three great nights in Dingle at the Liston Family B&B with Jill and Bengie (her 15 year old Westie). Jill is a wonderful hostess who made sure we were well taken care of. The accommodations are warm and cozy including our favorite - the instant hot water in the showers! Jill is a sweetheart who happens to...

I can still see you both sitting on the floor in the hall with Bengie. HE had the best time ever too, and I am so glad he helped you both feel less lonesome for your own treasured dogs. I hope they had a great welcome for you when you got home. Thank you for your lovely comments they are...

My husband and I would highly recommend the Liston Family B&B for your stay in Dingle. We loved everything about it. Jill greeted us with excellent hospitality and knowledge of the area. We had more than enough to do during our stay, and she was full of recommendations. We appreciated that she even picked us up at the bus stop...

Joe and Rachel, I can't believe it's nearly a year since you were here. I still remember you both and of course the sheep were 'home from home' for you both. For me they are also lovely to look at without the responsibility of actually owning them!!! It is lovely that you are now friends on my Facebook page too!...

My parents and I stayed here just recently in September for about a week. At first I was a bit disappointed cause the B&B seemed to be a bit far out of town. But walking that distance once I realised it was really super short and the silence a bit out of town is extremely enjoyable. It is wonderfully quiet...

Highly recommended. Jill is incredibly kind and helpful, and we were made to feel completely at home in our two night stay.
