One of the most beautiful spots on Earth!

  • 5 of 5

We have been home for two weeks and are still smiling about our Ireland experience! The highlight of our adventure was the week we spent at this beautiful home. It was perfect for our group of six, three couples traveling together throughout Ireland. The house is located in a lovely spot which allowed us the advantage of lunching at a great pottery shop/cafe just doors away, watching sunsets while sipping wine in the rocking chairs, and sharing several meals in the relaxed atmosphere of the dining room. One of my personal favorite memories was having morning tea in the dining room and watching the sun rise over the ridge in the East while the full moon was still visible in the West over the ocean. Incredible! Because this was midway into our trip, it was so nice to have the washer/dryer available. Leah and Eric, Thank You for allowing us to share your lovely home, the fascinating private tour of Dingle, and all your wonderful suggestions for eateries and spots of interest.

I can't imagine a better home and location

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I spent one week this August at this perfect house and property. We felt completely comfortable from the moment we arrived. The house is clean, beautiful and completely appointed. The location is ideal and the views are sublime. We walked across to their adjoining oceanfront property (28 acres, I believe), drove the Slea Head Drive or skipped in to Dingle and Ballyferriter minutes away. So many wonderful sights nearby, and the house itself offered plenty to do--fitness room, reading and movies about Ireland, Kerry and Dingle readily available. The hosts were readily available with suggestions and answers to minor questions. A complimentary tour of the region at the start of the week was a great bonus. We look forward to returning here--for longer the next time!

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!

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

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!
