A place of welcome and tradition
Located on the road to Dingle and the Dingle Peninsula The Anvil Bar & Restaurant is a traditional hotel/pub in Ireland. The proprietors Liz and her son Steven were great--welcoming, hospitable, and quick to engage with assistance, stories, or ideas for our trip. The food and beverages in the pub were great. The rooms are a little dated and the beds are a bit less comfortable than what you might find in other big hotels, but the price is extremely reasonable and the welcome and hospitality more than makes up for it.

The staff didn’t even know to expect me, eventually put me in the wrong room, had to wait for a manager to arrive and sort it out. Was an hour before I was in the right room.

I definitely recommend staying at The Anvil. The food was delicious, rooms were adorable and clean. It’s a family run business and they’re absolutely fantastic. The owner spent so much time with us giving great, detailed tips for our visit to Dingle and she was spot on! If you want a great experience with friendly people, clean facilities and great food...this is the place. Next time we come through, we will definitely stay again!
