Come and enjoy this brand new, yet traditional-feel ocean front thatched luxury home. Smell the ocean air, the turf in the fireplace, and enjoy the beautiful seaside location of this tastefully furnished and appointed seven bedroom home.
Dingle town itself is only 6 miles away and is home to many shops, cafés, restaurants, art galleries, sailing clubs, etc. Spend an afternoon exploring the town, browsing in the shops, enjoy lunch on the marina, take a boat trip to see Fungi the Dolphin, Dingle's most famous resident and at night time visit any one of the numerous pubs to enjoy a session of traditional Irish music.
These are only a few suggestions for you on your Irish holiday and certainly this is only a taster of all that awaits you in Dingle/Ballydavid!
Conservatory: Just off the living room, enjoy a quiet cup of tea in the Conservatory where there is comfortable wicker seating. It boasts three walls of windows – two with ocean views and one with a view to Brandon Mountain (second highest mountain in Ireland at 3,100 ft.).
Dingle / Ballydavid Area: Ballydavid (Baile na nGall in Gaelic) is a small West Kerry fishing village situated on Smerwick Harbour facing 'The Three Sisters' mountains. It is one of the few remaining Gaeltacht (Irish speaking) areas in Ireland so try your cúpla focal in the local shops and pubs. The Dingle Peninsula was voted 'the most beautiful place on Earth' by the National Geographic Explorer.
For those of you who enjoy an active holiday, there are many different walks for you to try and for the very serious hikers, how about climbing Mount Brandon (3,100 feet). Take a trip to the Blasket Islands, an amazing experience of beautiful landscape which was the source of inspiration for great writers and artists. Golf is also available at Ceann Sibéal links course which is approximately a ten minute drive from the house.

Also, there are many archaeological sites within a stone's throw - Gallarus Oratory, one of the best preserved examples of dry-stone built early Christian churches in Ireland, dating back to the 9th century. Cill Mhaolchéadair is another example of early Christian churches in the area and a little further afield near Ventry, beehive huts.
