Garveys country cottege
We had a lovely stay in garveys country cottage , beautiful views of ventry and the sea from the front of the house. A very safe environment for children as it is off the main road and has a gate. The kitchen was fully stocked of all utensils rooms comfortable and clean. Joan the lady of the house was very warm and welcoming on arrival and on leaving. Would stay here again, WiFi also which my kids loved, they could relax in the evening and watch there ipad after a day at the beach!!!!

Quiet, secluded
Large 4 bedroom cottage located a short drive from the coastal road. The house is bordered by shrubs, giving complete privacy but not impeding the beautiful view to the coast. Beds were comfortable. There is a nice open living room with a fireplace (which we didn't use) and a glassed in dining room with a lovely view. Kitchen is well stocked with utensils. The furnishings were dated, but the home was very clean and well maintained. There are board games, movies and books which would be helpful on rainy days. This home is perfect for a group or large family and an enjoyable place to relax after a busy day of sightseeing. It's off the beaten path, but close enough to Ventry and Dingle that it's not far to drive to restaurants and shops. Wifi worked well, though we had to hunt for the password which was taped to the router box. A few things to keep in mind: A deposit is required, by bank transfer which was a bit complicated to accomplish; the remainder is paid in cash. We recommend you ask Joan to come with you to the cottage to explain the hot water system and the heating. There is also a requirement to feed coins in the electric system, which is quite cheap (maybe 2 euro/day) in the summer but could be more costly in the winter as the heating is electric. The cottage is a short drive from Ventry, and 15 mins. from Dingle. It's recommended to bring groceries with you as the cottage was not stocked with any basics apart from a few spices and salt and pepper. It would be a nice touch if Joan were to provide a welcome of maybe a loaf of local bread, some milk and some fruit so there wouldn't be necessity to head out again to get supplies after arrival.

A wonderful place to stay in
Garveys Holiday Cottage is a great place to stay in for a company of travellers, especially if you are interested in active tourism. The cottage has a central position in the gaeltacht, so that the distances from Dingle and from Dunquin are practically equal. It's absolutely ideal if you travel by car or by bike. If not, you just have to call a taxi from Dingle, where buses arrive. As a matter of fact, there's a shop in Ventry village, and that's very close. There are quite a lot of things to do around: boat trips to the Blasket islands, horse riding, trekking, wind surfing, even swimming, which is allowed in special places (in case you don't mind the temperature). If you are interested in Early Irish history, there are lots of sights around and also a small museum in some 100 metres. Anyway, you can get a full account of activities in the cottage. The cottage itself is tidy and has all the amenities one may need (including washing machine and dishwasher) - I don't rememder lacking something for the kitchen and the bathrooms were fully eqipped. And, last but not least, the hosts - Mr. and Mrs. Garvey - are very friendly and always ready to help if their help is needed. Those two weeks that my friends and I stayed there were a wonderful time, really!

Magical Dingle Stay
My group and I were so well looked after at Garvey's cottage. Joan is a wealth of information, a wonderful cook,and a very generous soul. The cottage has wonderful ocean views with a short walk to the cliffs, and is perfectly located for other scenic tours/pilgrimages in and around Dingle. Dingle is truly a magical place with phenomenal sights, walks, and people. I would highly recommend anyone to come and stay here if they wish to experience something of the old and true Ireland. I miss Dingle and look forward to another visit.

home away from home!
this old newly restored farmhouse is very cosy and comfortable. it is situaed close to sleahaed and only e few kilometer away from the town of dingle, where you find shops, restaurants and pubs and of course Fungy. from the house you have a beautful outlook to the sea and you can do very nice walks towards the seashore or up the mountains behind you. the house is clean, very well furnisshed and the kitchen will offer you anything you might need. there is a beautiful garden with lovely green bushes and flowers, and you find total privacy. mr. and mrs. garvey are heartful, friendly people who represent the hospitality which is the second nature of the irish.
