Overview

Dingle Peninsula Farmhouse Rental Photos and Description

Holiday Home on a headland with stunning sea and mountain views

Rent a cottage and make the most of your time off. We have a lovely cottage to rent on a remote headland in southwest of Ireland. Brandon is located on the northern side of the dingle peninsula in Co. Kerry. The holiday home is located at Brandon point in a peaceful, unspoilt area with spectacular view of Brandon bay and surrounding mountains. The Stone Farmhouse is on its own site with a style of their own rather than the monotonous same colour and layout type constructions that you find in some holiday villages The farmhouse has unobstructed mountain and sea views from every window. Brandon has been described as the Land of extremes, extreme isolation at Europe's periphery, extreme beauty of land, water and sky.

Child Friendly:

Cot, High chair, baby monitors, potty,changing table, baby swing available on request.

Farmers Market:

There is a farmers market in dingle on Friday mornings.

Follow signs for Cloghane or An Clochán , Brandon or Bréanainn.

Our house is the 2nd House in Cloghane Village with a Brandon Bay Cottages Sign.

From Cloghane continue to Brandon Point - cottage last house on left.

The Great Outdoors: Brandon is a wonderful place to spend your holidays. Brandon - Cloghane is situated on the northern side of the dingle peninsula, tucked at the base of Mount Brandon and washed by the sparkling surf of Brandon Bay, the Cloghane Brandon region is surely one of the great beauty spots of the world. Here an exhilarating blend of mountain, sea and sky entice the visitor to linger, often longer than planned.

A fine selection of way marked trails through the Cloghane-Brandon hills have made the area a favourite destination for hill walkers. Walks range from short shoreline strolls to the high level Brandon Ridge Walk. The local walking guide book and No. 70 O.S Map are the ideal companions for all who wish to experience our special blend of hills, valleys and Atlantic coastline.

In Cloghane-Brandon, there is a choice between shore angling at Cappa and Fermoyle strands or casting for trout and salmon in the Owenmore River Valley below the Conor Pass.

In Cloghane-Brandon, the close proximity of mountains, sea and moorland makes for an interesting mix of wild flowers, ranging from seaside plants like sea pink to Alpine saxifrages. In between are the beathland, meadow and roadside plants. In summer scarlet fuchsia, purple foxglove, yellow and orange\red combine with other flowers such as the deep violet, great butter wort, bright yellow asphodel and heath spotted orchid of the Bogland to provide a memorable blaze of colour.

The tidal estuary of Cloghane Creek is a favourite haunt of curlews, oyster catchers, herons and many other waders. Cormorants, razor bills and guillemots find it a rich fishing ground. Fulmars nest at Brandon point, off which majestic gannets wheel and plummet in their spectacular quest for food. Another impressive aerial performer, the red-billed may also be observed at Brandon Point, soaring in the distraught, or feeding on the close-cropped hillside.

The stone farmhouse is a renovated stone house. It has lots of character - exposed stone in living area as well as a lovely open fire place. There are sea and mountain views from every window. It is located on a headland and the road ends just a few hundred yards from the farmhouse.

Incredible location, rental perfection!

  • 5 of 5
I don't even know where to start when describing this property. The exterior is nothing short of exquisite, so gorgeous. The interior is perfectly cozy and warm, with everything you need to be comfortable. I couldn't believe the value! We spent a lot of time at the rental because our toddler has an early bedtime. We saved so much money by cooking breakfast and dinner at the rental, and all the necessities of cookware are there, for certain.

We spent a week in Ireland and the most gorgeous view, I truly believe, was from the front yard of this property, or a 3 minute walk to brandon point, or a 5 minute drive to Brandon beach.

We would stay here again in a heartbeat! The owner was very kind and absolutely lovely in providing everything we needed to stay for a toddler.

My husband and I were looking for some time away from "it all" and we could not have been more pleased with our time at this home. It was just perfect for us and we hope to return some day.

Beautiful site and cozy home

  • 5 of 5
We so loved staying at this lovely home.
The views were even more spectacular than you can imagine; you awaken each day to the glorious sparkling waters of Brandon Bay.
The beds were very comfortable and the kitchen was well equipped and homey.
The only thing that could have improved our experience would have been a longer stay; we'll be back!
