Dún Ard Bed and Breakfast is located in the sunny South East of Ireland, in the land of the Déise, in the picturesque Gaeltacht of Ring (An Rinn).
Dún Ard is aptly named, overlooking as it does the awe-inspiring Dungarvan Bay. Prominently positioned on an elevated site, the house enjoys spectacular views of the Comeragh Mountains and Atlantic Ocean.
Famous the world over for its rich heritage and folklore, Ring is justifiably proud of its unique identity and Gaelic tradition. Colaiste na Rinne, the Irish language boarding school, is one of the few remaining in the country. It continues to play a key role in preserving the native tongue, attracting generations of students from throughout the country.
Only 10 kilometres away is Dungarvan, the county town of West Waterford and commercial heart. The same distance in the opposite direction is Ardmore, a beautiful coastal village and recent National winner of the Tidy Towns Competition.
As Dún Ard Bed and Breakfast is located in the heart of the West Waterford, it is an ideal base for visitors wishing to explore the nearby towns and villages of Youghal, Lismore, Stradbally & Tramore. The locality has a range of interesting activities to keep our guests occupied including three 18 hole golf courses, all within 15km, fishing & sea angling and a multitude day trips that we can help you to plan..
Closer to home is Helvick Head with its fishing port and lifeboat station, an idyllic spot for a casual stroll or brisk walk. The ocean views are truly breathtaking and the pervading sense of calm a genuine tonic.
With such an abundance of fresh sea air and unspoilt natural surroundings, it's little wonder that Ring is renowned for its quality of life and choice of activities. Visitors to Dún Ard Bed and Breakfast can enjoy cosy pubs and fine eateries, championship golf courses and water sport centres. There's no shortage of things to do and places to see.
Dún Ard is further enhanced by its immediate proximity to Mooney's Pub, a famous meeting place down through the years for traditional Irish singers and musicians. Its friendly people and relaxed way of life only adds to its special charm.
Dún Ard Bed and Breakfast is built on three levels with plenty of light and space. All four bedrooms are en-suite, three with luxurious Jacuzzi baths. One bedroom has its own private sauna in which to unwind after a long and stressful day.
Glass paneled on one side, the guest Sunroom opens onto a large balcony with panoramic views of the magnificent seascape.
