Wow this place surpasses all the places we stayed on our trip to Ireland even the luxury Castle we stayed in. John and his crew take such good care of you. Their kindness and the food oh my the food are top notch! The views are spectacular and we even had a double rainbow the first morning our our stay. When someone asks me what was your favorite place in Ireland without hesitation say Pax House! Thank you for making my Birthday so special.

It is 'a must' to come back and stay longer

The host and his team, further the house and its location overviewing the Dingle Bay as well as the superb breakfast are overwhelming - staying at Pax house and being looked after by the whole team feels like being at (luxury) home with friends. We also got precious recommendations for the evening and for excursions in the surroundings of Dingle village (we could also borrow the map for hiking).

I'd give 6 stars if I could.

This place is exceptional. Thoughtful yet unobtrusive service where every detail has been considered, which leaves you feeling utterly relaxed and at ease. The breakfast is quite possibly the best I've ever had. The views are stunning. John is the perfect host and thevstaff are wonderful. We can't wait to return.

Fabulous as Always......

Just back from our third visit to the Pax Guest House. Once again John, Michelle and all the staff made our stay most relaxing and so enjoyable. The Pax is without doubt our favorite place to stay and completely unwind, in this fabulous setting, every detail is so well considered, especially the breakfast being such a treat, not to mention the views. We are already looking forward to our trip back for next year. Cannot recommend this guest house enough!

We had a 10/10 experience at Pax Guest House.

I echo everything folks have shared in other reviews and just have to emphasize how amazing of a place John and team have created. Between the views, the top notch breakfast, the comfortable rooms / beds, the kind people, and Jules the dog (who is such a fun addition to the experience), we were left only wanting to come back. Pax can’t be missed. Thank you John and team!

Above & Beyond

Can’t say enough good things. John and the entire staff, including Jules the doggy, are hospitality specialists! Breakfast was sublime, as were the views from our room. We hope life brings us back to Dingle, especially Pax House. Go book now!

Beautiful location and wonderful place to visit!

My wife and I visited the Pax House with another couple late March 2023. We booked one of the lower level rooms and loved the room and the Pax House. It was very spacious and modern with a large bathroom. The view is amazing and breakfast was excellent. We were on a trip across London, Ireland and Scotland and the Pax House was our favorite location during our 4 week trip.

If I could give 6* I would!

John & his team have nailed it! Amazing stay, beautiful views. Warm friendly welcome, I felt right at home. All staff went above and beyond for us! I’d highly recommend a stay here and can’t wait to visit again.

I loved everything about the Pax House.

John was such a gracious host. The Pax House felt like it was home. We had some nice days in March, so we were able to sit outside and have a glass of wine. The breakfast was amazing. Our room was very comfortable and perfect views. I especially loved Jules, the Pax House dog.

Wow--there are no words or photos that can do this place justice.

The view is absolutely jaw dropping. Walking into Pax house was like a breath of fresh air. It is so beautiful and John was so welcoming. Unfortunately, we were only there for one night (that's changing next time!) but it was a wonderful night. Probably the most comfortable bed I've ever slept in. The breakfast was out of this world. I can't wait to come back so we can thoroughly enjoy all the Pax House has to offer. 10/10!

John and team rank as pretty much our favorite stay anywhere.

The level of service and care that is put into the rooms and overall attention to detail is phenomenal. I can't speak highly enough of them. I will certainly be returning again soon.

Pax is superb.

It begins with the view of Dingle bay from the reception room and continues throughout. Everything that is done is meticulously prepared and delivered. John and his staff are perfectionists. The detailed and artistic breakfasts are a wonder.

Pax House takes the prize for the nicest B&B we have EVER stayed in - no contest!

Our room had a king bed, huge bathroom, full living room area, and a patio with views of pastures and Dingle Bay. It seemed brand new and was decorated beautifully (as was the whole property) and included lots of interesting coffee table books on Ireland that I needed more time to read! 🙂 And the art throughout the property was a special treat.

This was our a great place to stay (we agree with the other reviewers).

This place was outstanding! Strong, swift, check in. Great and quiet room with great bath/shower and views (in the room and in the common area) that made us so happy. The breakfasts were on par with any breakfasts that we have ever had. John and the staff were quite strong and the help we received on restaurants, the town, and sites included, timely, accurate, and helpful information.

A dream experience!

What a dream! Our two nights in Dingle were long awaited, and I can say for certain that the Pax House exceeded our expectations (that were already very high based off the beautiful pictures and reviews). The immediate hospitality from Michelle, along with the breathtaking view in the main room felt like a dream. My parents stayed in the "Top of the House" room and the view was incredible. We had a comfy non-sea view room that was equally comfortable and designed just beautifully. The breakfast - WOW.

Apart from the excellent quality of the accommodation and the food, the special view of Single Bay and the resident dolphin Fungi there was a magical ambience and friendliness which was indefineable.

The entire staff makes you feel so comfortable and secure, Pax House is everything and more.

The attention to detail, his exceptional staff and John’s sincere hospitality make this truly the best stay in our two week visit to Irelan.

Pax House virtually swims in delightful distractions and whimsically smart, impressive and entertaining appointments.

If the B&B and Dingle weren’t so beautiful, I’D have a hard time getting out of the luxurious bed that was in our room.
Sarabeth G San Diego.

Arrived late and John gretted us all with a hearty welcome. Fabulous breakfast the next morning and the view of the bay and fields leading down to it were wonderful.

If Ireland is heaven the Pax House must be the Pearly Gates! Whether you are looking for your piece of Ireland, or your peace of mind, you’ll find it here.

Stumbled in the Pax House by accident, but am so happy that we did. John greeted us effusively at the door and after we checked in he brought us a beautiful tray of tea and biscuits.

The hotel is the best of both worlds-the personal attention to detail of a b&b, with the amenities and privacy of a boutique hote.

Arrived at Pax House late one night because of car problems, John was waiting for us with a smil and a quick check-in. I loved the “resident animals) Molly the cat, Rio the dog and the Three sisters (the hens).

Pax House was as good as it gets. Beautiful B&B, and gorgeous views..

After 20 trips to Ireland and many visits to Dingle I would have thought that I would not be blown away by a new B&B experience, but this is it.

We felt really special and lucky to have come across this fantastic place.

Attention to detail, like refective vests in the closet to be used for walks is exceptional.

We were over whelmed with the beauty of the location and the hospitality of John and all the staff who really “get it” when it comes to treating guests to a special experience and what hospitality is all about.

John, Margaret and Alma were all so gracious and hospitable beyond belief. Loved Rio. Loved Rio. Did I say that? This dog made us so happy to see, as we missed our dogs already.

This is truly a first class operation. The breakfast was 5 star. In all my trips to Europe, I have never experienced a breakfast like this one in a B&B prepared by John.

What really makes this place special though is the care, attention to detail and total professionalism.

Presentation and perfectionism is what Pax House is all about. John will knock himself out to make your stay at Pax House special. You won’t be disappointed.

The view is just to die for. I almost didn’t want to go out every day. The sitting room was so nice and pleasant.  Our breakfast spoiled all our other breakfast on our trip. No others were as delicious or as Beautiful as what John made everyday. Margaret was just the nicest person to see in the morning and afternoon. Her good spirits were infectious.
