The beauty of the Emerald Isle is matched only by its hospitality. Emlagh House, located in the town of Dingle along the infamous Wild Atlantic Way, combines the warmth and personality of B&B-style accommodation with the professional polish of a boutique hotel.
Each of the Georgian country house’s 10 bedrooms is named after a flower native to Ireland, and all are beautifully and uniquely furnished with thoughtful detail, from cashmere throws to antique cabinetry and hand-picked books on area history. Most offer king-size beds, a cozy sitting area and a view of the water or gardens.
The downstairs drawing room and breakfast room are places of quiet sanctuary, and the cooked-to-order breakfast is always a treat. Among the highlights: Delicate, crepe-like pancakes are served with chocolate spread, fruit and honey, and wholesome porridge is accessorized with brown sugar and Irish cream liqueur.
To fuel a full day of active adventure and exploration on the spectacular Dingle Peninsula, opt for the “full Irish breakfast” of bacon, eggs, sausage, tomato, mushrooms and baked beans.
