A FINE SPOT

  • 5 of 5
I have stayed at this listing many times - and every time is a joy. The views are the best part - I never tire of watching the Blasket Islands. Scenery is dramatic and lovely. Upkeep is great, and the neighbors are a treasure. The local pub is just a short walk accross a field, where Irish music from local musicians is a regular occurrence. A great launch point for day trips around the pennisula, or into DIngle for shops, pubs and restaurants. We have visited in Decemver, May and June - all good times to go (but you never know what Irish weather will be.) We love the kitchen and the fireplace, as well as the smell of burning peat.

OUT OF THIS WORLD

  • 5 of 5
Amazing and beautifully appointed home. Can't wait to visit again next year already! The house was perfectly clean, tidy and welcoming with a more than adequate kitchen supplies kit - smoked salmon, beer etc! The owners were so helpful leading up to and during our stay when needed. Their taste in arts, ceramics and decor make this home a real pleasure to stay in. The surrounding area is stunning, we ran, swam, body boarded, cycled, tried our hand at pottery, dolphin spotted, boat trips and so much more all within the immediate area. We are a couple with a young daughter and each of us loved the home and the area. I can't recommend this property highly enough.

CHARMING PLACE!

  • 5 of 5
Such a delightful cottage in the middle of what must be the most beautiful coast of Ireland.
Inside, the rooms are impeccable and furnished artistically with local pottery, watercolors, books and videos about the region, and riveting views of the hills and coasts.
Outside, the location is perfect for walking the lanes, hills, and historic sites or biking the coastal road or less-travelled paths that stem from Dunquin. We stayed for a week and wish we could have stayed much longer. The refreshing, renewing, relaxing break that we needed. We'll be back!

A BIT OF HEAVEN

  • 5 of 5
Thank you for sharing your lovely cottage with us. It was everything that we hoped for and more! It is so comfortable, well equipped and tranquil. We felt "at home" from the moment we walked through the door. The view through the picture windows is a bit of heaven. The Blaskets seem to change from hour to hour. We visited in June and the weather was fantastic. We had a few morning showers and long sunny afternoons.
We highly recommend this cottage to other families. It is a wonderful place to relax and put work and cares on hold. There are many trails to hike, incredible scenery, the beautiful sea and sunsets to drink in each day, archaeological treasures to explore, interesting people to meet, traditional music in the local pubs, and best of all... a snug, warm, comfortable bed awaiting you at the end of a long fun filled day. We could not have chosen a more perfect place for our holiday.

WE'LL BE BACK SOMEDAY

We'll be back someday
  • 5 of 5
My wife and I along with three teen-aged girls stayed here for a week in April several years ago. The cottage is lovely, and is situated in such a way that the views of the Blaskets and surrounding countryside greet you no matter where you look. We spent a lot of time tramping around the seaside and hills on the Peninsula. Beautiful.

The house is comfortable and well appointed. We had everything we needed for a relaxing and memorable visit. The owners contacted us by phone to see that we were getting along okay, and were friendly and helpful. We could not have asked for a better introduction to Ireland.
