Overview

Dingle Peninsula House Rental Photos and Description

House, 3 Bedrooms, 3 Baths, (Sleeps 6)

At the foot of Mount Brandon, Ireland’s second highest peak, this bright, modern residence is an ideal place to stay during your visit to the Dingle Peninsula.

It is fitted with all modern conveniences to ensure your comfort. Features include underfloor heating and instant hotwater 24/7. The house has satelite TV for your enjoyment, offering a choice of over fifty channels. Enjoy a movie/animation from our DVD collection. Choose a book from our library. Keep in touch with home using WIFI (2 Gigabytes free per booking).

Situated in the countryside you will enjoy the spectacular, rugged beauty of West Kerry, while the town of Dingle, with its countless attractions, is a mere 7 miles away.

Walkers love West Kerry with its designated trails and walks of varying length and difficulty. Many visitors will simply take a leisurely stroll along one of the many beaches while others relish the challenge of reaching Mount Brandon’s peak (3,000 feet) or trekking along ‘Cosán na Naomh’ (The Saints’ Path) which is fifteen miles from start to finish.

The owner has put together some information, directions and photographs of hill and cliff top walks that start and finish at the house. These packs are easy to follow and will be available to you during your stay.

It can be said that the Dingle Peninsula is the archaeological capital of Ireland. Googling ‘Dingle’ and ‘archaeology’ throws up over 46,000 hits! The area boasts Bronze Age standing stones, Iron Age promontory forts, early Christian monastic sites and medieval ring forts. All of these sites are within a short driving-distance of the residence, while the view from the sunroom will reveal a hilltop seventeenth century towerhouse. A thirty minute climb will get you to this towerhouse. It is well worth the effort with views of Mount Brandon to the northeast, the Blasket Islands to the south and, on the rare occasion, County Clare to the north.

Most of Corca Dhuibhne, to give the peninsula its Gaelic name, is a Gaeltacht where Gaeilge or Gaelic is still widely spoken. Cuirimid fáilte faoi leith i gcónaí roimh lucht labhartha na Gaeilge teacht inár measc.

Traditional Gaelic songs can regularly be heard in some of the local pubs not to mention the best of Traditional Irish music.

About The Owner

My name is Kevin, I'm a primary school teacher. I love the outdoors and spend a lot of my leisure time either hill walking or sea-angling from the shore. The photo shows me at the top of Mount Brandon, Summer 2011.

The Owner purchased this house in 2009

What makes this house unique

The property is situated in one of the last remaining Gaelic-speaking areas in Ireland. While staying here you can enjoy all that the Dingle peninsula has to offer.

Glorious location, lovely house

  • 5 of 5
We enjoyed four days here in June. Kevin was so proactive in sending us information about the property and things to do in the area.
The house is stunning, spacious, comfortable and well-equipped. We loved the views and the glorious sunshine! We were very lucky with the weather, but would imagine that this would be a gorgeous place to stay even in the rain!

The Best!

  • 5 of 5
Hi Kevin
Just wanted to tell you what a wonderful time we had at your
house. After 15 years of renting houses
in Ireland I have found my favorite! You have thought of everything to make
your guests comfortable. We loved all the windows; the house is just bathed in
light. The views from every window are just breath taking. So many houses are a
bit damp and chilly but your house with the underfloor heat is always warm and
cozy. The notebook of information in the house was so helpful especially all
the walks you listed.
I think the location is perfect it is so quiet and peaceful
but only a few minutes’ drive from Dingle town. We loved meeting your mom and
brother!
Thank you for sharing your beautiful house with us we can’t wait to return.

Great time on Dingle Peninsula

  • 5 of 5
We stayed at this wonderful house for 7 nights and wished we had stayed longer. We did 3 big hikes in the area and had a wonderful time relaxing. Everything was great (the refrigerator was smaller then anticipated. My husband is on a strict diet of plant based food and it was hard to store all of our food). But, I would definitely recommend this place. Kevin was so easy to work with and even recommended places to stay in the Galway area after we left his place. Wonderful memories of our trip to Ireland and the best memories will always be the time we spend in the Dingle area.

Great Place to Stay

  • 5 of 5
We stayed here with our children (ages 14 and 15) and it was fantastic. The house is bright, modern and immaculate. I loved the heated floors. It is in a quiet area away from the bustle of Dingle (but an easy drive if you want to go into town). Wonderful views from all windows. I really enjoyed sitting at the kitchen table watching the clouds and light change over Mount Brandon in the mornings and evenings. Kevin sent helpful information prior to our arrival and was easy to contact if we needed anything at all. The best part for us was the information in the house about the different walks in the area, which we never would have found on our own. Thanks so much!

Incredible Views and a great location!

  • 5 of 5
Thank you, Kevin, for the wonderful stay we had at your home on the Dingle Peninsula. Your home was beautiful and clean. Every window in the house provided a gorgeous view of the landscape. We especially enjoyed the sunroom! Thank you, also, for all the information that you provided about the area. We particularly enjoyed hiking around the area -- particularly the Cliff Walk. The town of Dingle was a delight and we particularly enjoyed the music at the pubs in the evening. The only things I could say that was wrong with our stay is that it came to an end too quickly -- we will return!

Irish Welcome

  • 5 of 5
We chose the Dingle peninsula to experience the heart of Ireland and we certainly did. The beautiful location and warm welcomemade us feel right at home. Kevin sent us clear directions a few days prior to our arrival and was happy to be contacted should we have any queries. The house was warm and clean with all necessary amenities including a good DVD collection, books and games for children. We loved the beautiful scenery on the Dingle Slea Head Drive together with opportunities to learn about local history. Your house is perfectly situated Kevin and we wish we could have stayed longer.
