During its 40 year tenure as one of the finest guesthouses in Munster, Milltown House was awarded 4 stars by Fáilte Ireland, the Irish Tourist Board. This is their highest guesthouse classification.
Then came 5 years of closure before Milltown House was purchased by Patrick & Stephen in 2014. In conjunction with Fáilte Ireland, we are now working on re-gaining our previous 4 star classification. Fingers crossed, we shall be the proud holders of 4 stars again as we go into the summer of 2015.
Our guests consistently rate award-winning Milltown House excellent in every respect. In addition, we proudly hold these commendations:

In 2015, Milltown House had the honour of being selected to one of the top-rated programmes on Irish National TV, ‘At Your Service’. Renowned 5 star Hotel gurus – John and Francis Brennan – join forces with our co-owners, Patrick Wade and Stephen McPhilemy, to help return Milltown House to its former glory.
The programme was watched by a huge portion of the Irish viewing public. It provided some good laughs, some tense moments, and some beautiful sunny footage of a magical summer in Dingle.
*Milltown House has been one of the premier Guesthouses in Ireland since 1969, but the property closed for 5 years in 2009. In 2014, we bought this old beauty and gave it a rebirth. In our first year of operation we were humbled to be included in the ‘Top 100 Places to Stay on the Wild Atlantic Way’. Now this award is a perfect morale-boost as we enthusiastically embrace “Season 2″ on beautiful Dingle Harbour!
