Overview

Dingle Peninsula House Rental Photos and Description

House, 4 Bedrooms, 4.5 Baths, (Sleeps 10 -12)

Dunroman house was purpose built as a luxury four star Irish Tourist Board approved guest-house. It has operated as a guest-house until 2011 and due to change of circumstances is now available for vacation rental. It is located next door to the owner’s private accommodation. There are four spacious bedrooms, all with en-suite private bathrooms. The three largest rooms each have a double queen size bed and a single bed, and the fourth room has one double queen size bed. Extra fold up beds or childrens cots can be arranged as necessary. All the bedrooms are tastefully decorated with clean white paintwork and beautiful knotted French pine wooden floors. All the rooms in the house comply with the Irish Tourist Board four star guesthouse standards.

Linen and towels are supplied, as are all utilities, and some basic foodstuff such as tea and coffee etc.

The house is located in a quite country setting, beside the N86, 3 miles from the town of Dingle, 27 miles from Tralee and 40 miles from Killarney. There are some spectacular mountain scenes from the bedroom windows and the sea and many beautiful beaches are only minutes away.

Dingle peninsula stretches out into the Atlantic Ocean and is surrounded by the warm waters of the Gulf stream. This results in a very temperate mild climate where exotic plants are common and many rare fish are found around this part of the coast.

The peninsula has some of the most scenic walking tracks in the country, the “Dingle Way” probably being the best known among walkers. The Dingle peninsula has numerous prehistoric archaeological sites of great historical interest and a guided archaeological tour can be easily arranged. Experience unique gems such as the 9th century Gallurus Oratory, and the early christian beehive huts. In more modern times, Dingle peninsula is famous for being the location of “Ryan’s Daughter” the David Lean- Bob Mitchum- Sarah Miles film made in 1969 and “Far and Away” the 1992 film starring Tom Cruise and Nicole Kidman.

The Dingle peninsula has been voted “the most beautiful place on Earth” by the National Geographic. It has also been voted one of the top 100 destinations in the world and has been recently recommended by CNN as a very favourable winter destination.

The peninsula offers some of Ireland’s most beautiful scenery, rugged and raw, wild and untamed. Parts of the peninsula are still Gaelic speaking, and all of the peninsula is extremely welcoming to visitors.

Why not avail of a complimentary guided Marine Eco tour of Dingle Bay and the Blasket Islands on one of the owners tour boats (April - Oct ). Get close to nature in comfort, see dolphins, seals, puffins, gannets, and if you are lucky, a whale, in their natural wild environment. Enjoy some of the most breathtaking scenery on the Irish coast. All trips are weather permitting.

Deep sea angling trips can be arranged and all gear is provided on the boats. Some of our guests like to catch their own fish and then cook it back in Dunroman for dinner - you can’t get fresher than that! For the committed angler, there are numerous shore angling spots that are good for bass, pollock, mackerel, wrasse etc. If your preference is lobster, crab or crayfish, the owners can arrange to buy it fresh from the boats for you to cook for that special meal.

Dingle town is 3 miles / 5 Kilometres from Dunroman. It is a small town with a native population of 1,600 which swells to 5,000-6,000 during the summer. Dingle is renowned for punching above its weight in many respects, and is known all over the world as one of the primary holiday destinations in Ireland. At one time the town boasted 52 pubs, but this has reduced somewhat over the recent years. There are still some old world traditional pubs that have remained unchanged for hundreds of years- hardware on one side of the saloon, bar counter on the other side. Many of Dingle’s pubs have free entertainment most nights, usually traditional music and song. Dingle is probably one of the top gourmet destinations in Ireland, and was awarded 'foodie town of Ireland' in 2014, with its many award winning restaurants. Many of the bigger bars also do really good value meals, lunches and dinners. The Dingle Food and Wine Festival held over the first weekend of October is always a very well attended and popular event. Dingle, or “ Daingean Uí Chúis” in Gaelic, was established 700 years ago as a Norman walled town. Some of the old town wall is still visible. It was once a major commercial port doing trade with Spain and Portugal back in the 18th. and 19th centuries, and since then an important fishing port, but over recent decades, Dingle has become the primary tourist destination of South West Ireland, since the early 70's when the MGM movie 'Ryans Daughter' was shot here.

Dingle aquarium is probably the best of its kind in Ireland. The vast array of local sealife is featured, as well as an amozonian section. There is a shark tank, an underwater glass viewing tunnel, and the most recent addition is a penguin enclosure. There is also a well stocked souvenir shop and a coffee shop.

There are numerous activities for young and old available, both indoor and outdoor. For those who just want to relax and wind down, there are beautiful walks through the surrounding country lanes, where the only traffic you are likely to meet is a farmer going about his work, who most likely will stop and talk to you for a while.

You can have all your holiday activities pre-arranged for you by the owners, or you can 'play it by ear' as they say here. The choice is yours, but whatever your plans, Tom and Noeline will do their best to ensure that you go back home relaxed and happy with your stay.

About Tom Hand

Tom is a marine electronics engineer by profession, and during the summer months he skippers one of the familys' tour boats. Noeline is a nurse in the local hospital. Both have 13 years experience in looking after guests and take great pride in doing it well.

Tom Hand purchased this house in 2002

Why Tom Hand chose Dingle Peninsula

Both Tom and Noeline have lived here since 1986, and would never move. The natural beauty of the Dingle Peninsula is unsurpassed anywhere else, but what makes this place so special is the unique character of the people who live here. The area has an undescribable magnetism, which is evident by the many tourists that come here and never leave.

What makes this house unique

Dunroman is a modern, clean, comfortable, cosy house, in a country setting, but only minutes from the sea, beaches, mountains, walks, towns.

The unque benifit you will enjoy while a guest at Dunroman is the offer of a complimentary trip on a tour boat to either see the local resident dolphin 'Fungie', or go on a guided Eco tour on Dingle Bay and to the Blasket Islands ( April - October ). Please note that all trips are weather permitting, but as you may know, we sometimes get all four seasons in one day here in Ireland, so if today is not suitable, tomorrow might be.

Perfect for our group of 9

  • 4 of 5

The size of this house was perfect for our group. Plenty of room for each family member for sleeping and loved the dining area for end of day pow wows. It was also great having a couple of food items already available to us - milk, orange juice, bread, coffee, tea, etc. While the hot water was not enough, at times, for the group of us, we made do. We were not too far from the town and it did not impede our activities.

June stay

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time in Dingle and Noelene and Tom were the perfect hosts. The house had everything we needed and was a nice size to spread out and have a bit of your own space which is important when traveling with 7. Noelene was very helpful with all of our needs and provided great recommendations for our local travels. The Eco tour we went on with Tom was fabulous. We also are really fond of their dogs. Overall we loved Dingle and would highly recommend Tom and Noelene's vacation rental.

Perfect stay

  • 5 of 5

Friends and I stayed here over New Years 2013. The owners were friendly and really helpful with any questions we had. The house couldn't of been better. We had lots of room both in the bedrooms and living space. The owner had it beautifully decorated for Christmas which made it even more special. I would happily recommend this house to anyone.

Family Trip

  • 5 of 5

I can say our family of 13 had a wonderful stay. There were 6 adults and 7 kids, we stayed here for 10 days. The house was very spacious and clean. The host family was fantastic. They helped us with any need we had, and gave us great advice on things to do and see on the Dingle Peninsula. I would highly recommend staying here. Also, take advantage of the Eco-tour, it was the highlight of our trip.

Wonderful home

  • 5 of 5

Noeline and her family were amazingly hospitable, kind, and helpful. We have 3 small kids ages 2, 4 and 8 and I was a little worried about dirtying up the place. Noeline wasn't phased at all when we arrived with our kids soaked from playing at Inch Beach (which was a lot of fun). We had a little trouble with the internet, and her son was SO HELPFUL in making sure my husband could do his business overseas while we were gone. The home is bright, cheery and comfortable, filled with books and games. Great home. This was the best place we stayed during our 2.5 week trip.

One word... Amazing

  • 5 of 5

Dunroman is the perfect balance of ultra modern facilities but located in an old world setting just 3km outside the historic West of Ireland town of Daingean Uí Chúis (Dingle).

I was astounded by the "cead mile failte" I received from Tom and Noeline on arrival. Their warm generosity and incredible local knowledge meant that I felt like I was in a home away from home when I arrived. My biggest surprise was when I asked about exploring the local marine area and Tom took me on a complimentary trip on his own boat and I could explore Dingle Bay and the Blasket Islands.

The facilities were second to none with a state of the art kitchen area, beautiful pine wood floors and ensuite bedrooms with spectacular views of the rolling green hills behind.

The location just outside Dingle, the Gaelteacht (the traditional Irish speaking part of Ireland) and walking distance from beautiful sandy beaches and great hill walking opportunities meant I could not rate this property any higher.

Incredible hospitality, amazing facilities and located in my favourite part of the world. Simply awesome.

The owners operate various boat trips from Dingle Harbour and are offering complimentary places on the regular Marine Eco tours to the Blasket Islands, ( April - Oct ) and harbour trips to see Fungie, the famous resident Dingle dolphin, to all guests at Dunroman House. The Eco tours consist of a guided boat trip from the harbour pontoon to the Great Blasket Island and on to the outer islands. Eco tour trips take from 3 to 4 hours, depending on the wildlife encountered. Trips out to see Fungie the dolphin last for one hour. There is an abundance of wildlife around the Blasket Island archipelago, Basking sharks in April/May, puffins in May, June, July, seals and dolphins all year round, and the odd Minke whale from May to September. If birdwatching is your pleasure there are gannets, gulls, guillemots, terns , shags, petrels etc to be seen, and that’s just on the water. Of course all trips are weather dependent. Deep sea angling trips can be arranged for you at reasonable rates- catch your own dinner !
