O'Neill Family is from West of Dingle but spent many years teaching in USA only to return home to Clogher.

Leah O'Neill purchased this house in 2008

This is the most beautiful place in the world with great people, who have a wonderful sense of humor, and know how to enjoy life.

Ocean is not just a view but just walk down the path from the house to kyack, fish, swim, sit and read, explore. Great marked walking trails.

A LITTLE SLICE OF IRISH HEAVEN

  • 5 of 5
Just returned from our wonderful stay at Leah and Eric's home. The fact that I and many others mention the owners by name in their reviews should tell you all your need to know about renting from these fine people!
Their home is simply top notch! As a family who has rented vacation homes the last seven years I can tell you this house is simply one of the best for the price and location that you will find! Clean, spacious, well decorated and appointed. Comfortable furniture and bedding. And the showers?! My gosh the showers are simply wonderful!
The location is amazing. We loved just sitting on the front porch each night with a Pint and watching the sunset. The daily hikes and walks from the property were quintessential Ireland! We even got to watch a baby calf being born in the pasture across the road from the house.
Dingle is a short 15 minute drive. Balleyferriter is close by. Lots of beaches to walk along and Clougher Head is a great little walk.
Finally - Leah and Eric. Just simply two wonderful people. They were available when we needed them and did so many little things to make our trip wonderful. Our seven year old daughter wants to be an artist like Honora now and treasures her print she got from the gallery. Just a wonderful family and a wonderful property and experience.
You simply can't go wrong choosing this home. We hope to go back some day soon....

HOME AWAY FROM HOME

This was my second year staying in Leah's and Eric's home through VRBO. This is a family home that is equal to five star accommodations. I plan on returning year after year.... I hope this review along with the others convince you to contact Leah and book your vacation! PS, Eric's local history tour is the icing on the cake!

MA FAMILY

  • 5 of 5
Clogher Strand is a perfect rental for various reasons. The house is located in a scenic and quiet area with surreal views of the ocean. It is 10 minutes from the Blasket Island cultural center and 20 minutes from Dingle.

The house is spacious, artistically decorated, extremely comfortable, and has every amenity needed. It is easy to spend a lot of time relaxing and enjoying the house. My wife has relatives in the Dingle and Dunquin areas. The house was the perfect place to bring a group of people together in an absolutely beautiful setting. The gourmet kitchen helped make breakfast more enjoyable and entertaining easy. The day of our departure, no one in my family wanted to leave and we could have easily stayed for additional weeks.

The owners of the property are wonderful people. They are generous, accommodating, attentive, and helpful. They are family oriented, and committed to the Irish culture and philosophy. Eric is very knowledgeable about the archeogical history of the area and Leah is a great resource for Irish culture. They are nice people and helped to make our vacation the best

WOW!

  • 5 of 5
My family and I stayed at Clogher Strand during April 2014. I have to say that I read the previous reviews and thought it too good to be true. Well, we are believers. My family and I agree that it was the best vacation we have ever had, and we have taken many trips.
Eric and Leah are the perfect hosts and their home is absolutely magnificent, down to the last detail. They wanted to be certain we had everything we needed for the perfect week, and we did! The house was so absolutely complete, we lacked for nothing. The views, spectacular!..Since we are outdoor people, we were down to the beach, walking the many trails, horse back riding, and the owner's personal tour showed us a part of the peninsula we would have never seen on our own and it was a gift to us! These are people who not only take pride in this lovely home, but truly want to share it with us, the visitors. Ballyferriter Village, just down the road, a quick walk to a lovely restaurant where we enjoyed great lunches...and most likely best of all, the spectacular owner's private beach and cove, 28 acres that is part of their property that is just the most beautiful spot in the world, and we enjoyed a lovely picnic there. The Irish speaking people and this spot could not be any kinder or more helpful. I know I am going on and on, but really it is a very, very special place and we are already planning our return!.. Thank you, Eric and Leah, for making our stay so very special for our family and being willing to share your very own bit of paradise...My advice, you will not be disappointed!

EPIC EIRE ADVENTURE - DINGLE PENNISULA

  • 5 of 5
If you ever get a chance to visit the Emerald Isle you must see the Dingle Pennisula. And if you're truly blessed with the "luck of the Irish" you will be fortunate enough to stay at this home. Magnificent views of both land and sea are in every direction. To say this home is comfortable is putting it mildly. The owners are two souls, whose seemingly sole purpose is to make sure that your stay will forever be one not soon forgotten. From Eric's archeological tour of the Dingle Pennisula (an absolute must!) to Leah's mind-blowing level of customer service (how many owners will call you back at 1130P to tell you how to turn on the blasted oven - since the cooks have had a couple - three beers and scotches while reading the manual!) to arranging dinner at one of the most sought after local restaurants complete with cake & candles for your birthday. You start to wonder if this woman is some siren conjured up from the Irish Mist! The word "disappoint" is not included in their vocabulary. Neither will that word ever be used to describe their home. Book early (as in months) or you will miss out on this gem. Plenty of room for all; there were 4 in our party. Space to sneak away for quiet time be it reading a book, reviewing pictures, or a quick siesta all the while listening to the ocean / waves crashing out upon the rocks as well as the occasional braying donkey! Local golf course just down the road - good warm up for taking on Waterville, Ballybunnion and the like - that also serves a wonderfully done traditional Irish Breakfast (newly minted black pudding fans)! Natural land and seascapes during trail hiking leaves you shaking your head saying to yourself 'is this for real?" all the while grinning from ear to ear. You can either head into Dingle for dinner (15-20 min) or stop in Ballyferriter for food and pub crawl, which is less than 5 minutes out the door. Supervalu in Dingle has everything you need if you want to just cook/stay at home and enjoy the sunset. Thanks so much for sharing your home as well as your local knowledge. In doing so you truly made it one of the most memorable experiences for my lads and I on my 50th birthday / golfing tour of Eire. You've afforded all of us an inner perspective of our our Irish heritage and for that words simply cannot express our deepest thanks. Slainte!!

Owner's Response: Lads...Words cannot express our appreciation of your kind remarks as you are just such great guys and we thoroughly enjoyed your stay with us. You really took time to think about everything, and just reading your comments was very special for both Eric and me. Thank you, Frenchy, and send my regards to all. Hope to see you again one of these days!...Fondly, Leah

VACATION OF A LIFETIME

  • 5 of 5
Our family stayed at this amazing home for a week in August 2013. There were 6 adults, and the space was perfect (Mom and Dad, plus 2 children and their spouses). Leah was the perfect hostesses. She met us at the house when we arrived, and gave us tons of information about the area, and told us all we needed to know about the house. Leah kept in touch, but was not intrusive. We now have a new friend in Ireland! The area around the house is easily walkable and never ceased to amaze us -- beautiful views of the ocean, cliffs and countryside. Ballyferriter is a short drive with good pubs. Dingle is also close and is full of things to do. Wonderful food to eat, a good grocery store for everything one needs for the house. We ate breakfast every day at the house; lunch if we ended up there at noon; always ate dinners out. Played golf at the nearby Dingle Golf Course; did the Blasket Island tour; bought beautiful pottery at Mulcahey Pottery next door; were introduced to Dingle Gin and Vodka, and enjoyed the shopping and pubs in Dingle. It was a wonderful week, made most enjoyable by Leah and her comfortable and beautiful home.
