A Hidden Gem
A beautiful self catered cottage hidden away in the Dingle Peninsula countryside. Beautiful walks around the area and very friendly locals. Mary was fantastic with a warm welcome and coal fire lit for us on arrival. If you are looking for peace and relaxation I suggest you stay here. Dingle town is around 15 mins drive to get all your groceries and worth the walk around the town and hopefully a boat trip, Weather permitting. The wild Atlantic Way drive is beautiful. Definitely a part of Ireland I would recommend if you want to travel just a little bit further. Dublin to Dingle around 4 hrs but the drive is lovely and definitely worth it. Thank you Mary for adding to our memories of the Emerald Isles.

Sehr geräumig und sehr gut eingerichtet
Das zweistöckige Ferienhaus ist großzügig, sauber und sehr gut eingerichtet. Es hat eine gemütliche Atmosphäre. Die Lage ist sehr ruhig mitten in der Natur. Was aber auch ein Auto unbedingt erforderlich macht. Die Vermieterin ist nett und zuvorkommend und wohnt gleich nebenan. Wir haben unseren Familienurlaub dort verbracht und waren sehr zufrieden! Sehr empfehlenswert!

Nice house in a lovely area.
Lovely little place with everything we needed. Very comfortable beds and everything clean and tidy. House is in a great location for the excellent beaches and pretty countryside. Useful little shop within walking distance for essentials (seemed to be open all the time!). Mary was very helpful and always on hand if needed.

Excellent stay
We have just returned from our week away at this lovely cottage. Mary and her husband welcomed us warmly on arrival. The cottage was very comfortable and spacious with all the facilities we needed. We particularly enjoyed our evenings in front of the fireplace. The bed in main bedroom was enormous and all mattresses very comfortable. There was a 5 minute drive to the beach and 2 pubs to choose from on each side of the beach. The distance is also walkable if you fancy a couple of pints. There's a village shop less than 10 minutes walk from the cottage and if you need a big shopping- Dingle is just 20 minutes drive away. We really enjoyed our chats with the owners and my 8 years old son was treated with some extra biscuits. We have also been recommended the place we could go for some Irish folk music which was very helpful as we couldn't go to the pub with our child. Summarising it was a great holiday and we will definitely come back. Highly recommended. Chris, Kasia and Alex.

Beautiful cottage
Having just returned from spending a week with my husband and two children in this delightful cottage. Beautifully finished, fabulous Queen size bed which was extremely comfortable for a holiday home.Mary was so welcoming and very knowledgeable about the area. Even had delicious homemade scones for us on arrival. Couldn't recommend this cottage enough. 10 minute drive from Dingle so a car is advisable.

Nice stay
We had lovely stay in this house for a week in august. Rooms are nice size & kitchen is very well equipped. Beautifully located in the countryside 10km from dingle town. Only disappointment was the pubs & restaurants mentioned in the description were not within walking distance.3.6km to nearest pub. Also there was a charge for electricity on top of rental price which was priced high. We had a lovely stay & would recommend it as very scenic views.

Tout le confort au calme
Ce cottage est situé en plaine campagne, à quelques centaines de mètres de la côte et 10 à 12 minutes de Dingle. Il est voisin de la maison des propriétaires qui tiennent aussi un B&B. Les lieux sont spacieux et particulièrement bien équipés, la literie est remarquable. Nous y avons passé une excellente semaine au calme.
