Welcome to “An Teach Bán” - The White House. If you are looking to experience the magic of Ireland in a breathtaking location with home from home comfort then look no further.
Built in 2009, The White House sits on over an acre of land and was designed to take upmost advantage of the spectacular, panoramic sea and mountain views. A short leisurely stroll downhill takes you straight to the legendary Inch beach. Situated right on the beach, Sammy’s’ bar and restaurant provides shop, cafe and restaurant facilities where you can enjoy fabulous all day food and drinks whilst enjoying the mesmerising summer sunsets or the dramatic winter storm views. Friends visit all year round and say they enjoy the incredible winter scenes just as much as summer trips. If you don’t enjoy cooking on holiday, no worries - you need never switch on the range! Just head down to the beach for home cooked breakfast, lunch and dinner - not forgetting their delicious coffees and cakes or a glass of fine wine or Guinness.... Alternatively, a short walk from the beach takes you to ‘Foley’s Pub’ where you can treat yourself to sumptuous home-made gourmet pub food and great live Irish music evenings.
For relaxing ‘stay at home’ days the house features a full length south facing deck providing panoramic ocean and mountain views. In daytime you can enjoy the majestic sea views across the water to ’MacGillicuddy’s Reeks’ and ‘Carrauntoohhil’, the highest peak in Ireland. At night be spellbound by the huge open expanse of star filled skies and look out across the sea and be captivated by the twinkling lights of the seaside towns of Glenbeigh and Rossbeigh.
The house was built in 2009. It was designed with open plan, spacious rooms and high ceiling themes. The land has such beautiful sea views it reminded me of many trips to the USA where I rented and fell in love with the lovely Cape Cod beach house designs. This was as close as the local planners would allow me to go in replicating a Cape Cod house in Kerry!
Everyone who visits falls in love with the house and the surrounding location. The house exudes peace and happiness. I hope you have a memorable holiday in my home.
The 4 bedrooms can accommodate 8 guests. There are 4 bedrooms in total. The upstairs master suite is a huge room which features both a super-king and a standard-king size bed. In addition it has a very large en-suite bathroom with cast iron bath and double shower. The additional 3 bedrooms on the ground floor comprise; - another master suite with super king bed and full bath and double shower en-suite; a standard king double bed with double shower en-suite and a twin bedded 2 x 3ft singles beds with bath and power shower over bath. All bathrooms are fitted out in luxury ‘Fired Earth’ fittings and invigorating power showers.
There are 2 living areas, one upstairs and one downstairs both with stunning sea views. The 2 separate living areas provide superb comfort and privacy should 2 families holidaying together want some ‘time alone’ space. Alternatively, the TV addicts can adjourn to the upstairs living area whilst others can simply relax downstairs and fall asleep whilst watching the waves go by...
Fitted throughout with vintage reclaimed Georgian floorboards, furnished with individually designed hand-made sofas, and decorated in serene historical colour moods, this house was designed as a real living home. The massive USA imported Andersen windows act as ‘art canvasses’ for the magnificent views beyond. Hence, are no blinds on any of the windows except for the bathrooms. The stunning views from the huge deck and garden area create memorable ‘dining out at home’ experiences. There are outdoor tables and chairs for you to maximise your outdoor time.
I spent many happy holidays returning to my parents homeland.When I literally fell across this breathtaking piece of land for sale I couldn't believe my luck. It took many years of battling with planners to build the house of my dreams but it was worth the wait...
Veronica purchased this house in 2009
The setting is magical. Everyone who visits falls in love with the house, the location and the amazing panoramic views. You will not want to leave...
One of the many charms of Ireland is the weather. It can be wild and wonderful. The house location presents a perfect dramatic setting in winter months and a glorious expanse of sun shimmering sea views during summer months. The huge picture windows captures the beauty of this dramatic landscape. So much so, friends say they don't care how bad the weather turns in winter, they love to simply laze away the day on the sofas watching the huge waves crash against the coastline. There is a very special karma here that touches all who visit... Enjoy!
Our family - two daughters, mom, dad and both grandmothers - had a wonderful time at An Teach Ban. This house is absolutely beautiful. The pictures on Home Away are very nice and we had high expectations before traveling to Ireland. When we arrived, our expectations were exceeded - the views are spectacular. The surrounding area - Inch Beach, Anascaul, Dingle... - are all beautiful. If you go, you must walk the Old Roman Road, hike the Anascaul Lake Trail, sing with the musicians at Sammy's Pub, and watch the weather change from Veronica's living room. The house is very well laid out with large rooms, comfortable beds, plenty of bathrooms and lots of windows with great views. One of the most enjoyable parts was planning our vacation - Veronica helped us plan everything from rental cars, great trails to hike, renting a bicycle, getting a chef to prepare a cooking demonstration, and much more. We felt like Veronica put as much love into helping us with our vacation plans as she did in designing and building this wonderful home. We are very grateful and hope to visit An Teach Ban again one day.
This is a wonderful VRBO, to stay at, on the Dingle Peninsula, by Inch Beach, in West Ireland. It is very private and about a 20 minute drive, to the town of Dingle. It is also, in a great location, for day drives. The house is tastefully decorated, with striking details and soothing colors. The 180 degree views, of Dingle Bay and the ocean, immediately draw you in, welcoming you to unwind, on the Emerald Isle. Across the bay, you can enjoy a magical, sweeping view, of the Ring of Kerry. The beautiful kitchen is well equipped and the many beds are comfortable, with soft duvets and pillows. The abundance of bathrooms are modern, with plenty of towels and delightful soaps and lotions. This is a spacious VRBO, for families or a group of friends or even someone just wanting to relax. There is a large private deck, outdoor table and yard; plenty of parking; and an efficent washer and dryer. Inch Beach is expansive, a haven for shell seekers. There is a great supermarket, in Dingle, if you prefer cooking, as well as many restaurants. It was very easy to work with the owner, and, her house manager is friendly and helpful. The owner of this house has exquisite taste. We will definitely return, to this delihtful VRBO.
Veronica's stunning house is even more impressive than in the photos here. We were enchanted as soon as we arrived, greeted by the lovely Marian and with a generous welcome pack from Veronica.
The house was spotlessly clean and tidy, with every little detail thought of. We had planned to travel all over Kerry, but the house was so perfect that we ended up simply spending lots of our time sitting in, reading, and enjoying the amazing views over Inch Beach.
The rooms were all incredibly comfortable, and the fact that they're all en suite is great. The beds were lovely to sleep in and the showers were powerful and always had hot water. The kitchen facilities were also top of the range.
We visited Dingle a number of times (having a delicious meal at Global Village), and also did a few lovely walks around the area, as well as visiting Tralee and a few other spots. The entire area is beautiful and refreshing, but the real highlight for us was the wonderful house. Highly recommended!
We were treated to a wonderful family holiday that was @ An Teach Ban, Inch. Dealings with the Owner and Manager were very pleasant and the welcome we received by way of gifts of wine, coffee and delicious brownies when we arrived was a lovely surprise.
We enjoyed relaxing at the house and enjoyed the lovely interior of the house. All rooms were en-suite, had a lovely kitchen, areas to relax in while drinking in the wonderful views.
Most days were spent on Inch Beach, except one day when we did the Slea Head drive.
The village of Anacaul was a short drive away to top up on provisions.
Owner & Manager had plenty of visitor information on things to do in the local area and wider environs of Kerry.
We had the most wonderful time and look forward to another visit in the near future.
The communication with the owner (Veronica) was excellent during the booking process even allowing us the flexibility of extending our stay from 7 to 9 days. In advance Veronica provided us with an extensive welcome pack of information giving directions to the property, details on facilities and things to do in the area.
Veronica and her housekeeper Marian greeted us on arrival with a welcome present of fine wine, coffee and home-made chocolate brownies. The house is simply stunning and the online photos cannot do full justice to the property or the views. The property was spotless and the decor, fixture and fittings are first class. It is obvious that Veronica has taken the time to make this more than a holiday home.
As an extended family of ten with ages ranging from 16 to 83 we needed a location that would provide a variety of experiences. An Teach Ban did not let us down. The teenagers and their Nana! were able to surf and body board on the beautiful Inch beach. Surf board hire was only 5 Euros for an hour but there was a relaxed return time so we regularly got extra time. The choice of restaurants and pubs in the Dingle area is fantastic for eating but regularly we were drawn back to the house for a family BBQ so we could enjoy the views. Marian keeps the house well stocked with tourist information leaflets on experiences to have in Dingle and the surrounding area.
During our stay followed many of the recommendations in the welcome pack and were not disappointed. We visited the Blasket Islands, dined in Dingle, ate at Sammy’s on the beach, visited the many beautiful beaches on the peninsula but I think our lasting memories will be the views from the house.
In summary we have no hesitation in recommending this property. To experience the magic of the Dingle Peninsula I doubt there is a better property in which to stay.
Beautiful house totally lived up to expectations - stunning interior, very comfortable & well equipped with views to die for :) Very picturesque setting & perfect location where we could completely relax & unwind but also so much to see & do in the area. Local beach is gorgeous with lovely bar/restaurant (great cakes!) & Veronica gave us lots of very helpful tips on places to visit & where to eat & drink. Particularly loved Dingle & Killarney - overall one of our favourite ever holidays.
The stunning location of Inch Strand brings visitors from all over the world. Inch Beach was the setting for Director David Lean’s Oscar winning film ‘Ryan’s Daughter’, a loose adaptation of Gustave Flaubert’s novel, ‘Madam Bovary’. The breathtaking cinematography and the natural beauty of the area as depicted on screen heralded the start of the Dingle Peninsula as a tourist destination. The glorious never ending sandy Inch Beach is surrounded by a sheer majesty of landscapes and panoramic vistas. Once visited, Inch is never forgotten.
Inch Village overlooks the Atlantic Ocean and features one of the best beaches in Europe. The beach has become renowned for surfing and paragliding enthusiasts and also provides great opportunities for beach walks, swimming or simply combing for washed-up beach treasures. The house location affords stunning ocean views and panoramic views across the sea to ‘McGillicuddy Reek’s – an artist’s paradise. For walkers the ‘Dingle Way’ is a beautiful scenic route traversing many of the hills and valleys of this famous peninsula. This, together with the’ Kerry Way’ and the ‘North Kerry Way’, make ‘An Teach Ban’ a dream holiday home.
As described by Lonely Planet.Com: County Kerry is as close you’ll get to the mystical Ireland. Between the county’s snow capped summits are medieval ruins, glacial lakes, coastal peninsulas, blustery beaches, deserted archipelagos, secluded hamlets. Everyone who visits my home make sure they also enjoy visiting the larger towns such as Dingle, Tralee and Killarney where live music sparks up every night as all are but a leisurely drive from Inch Beach.
Tourists arrive with the idea that the iconic Ring of Kerry is a ‘place’ they can visit. In fact, it’s a 179km circuit of the Iveragh Peninsula, where the mountains-meet-ocean beauty makes for one of the world’s great road trips
