Guestbook comments from the owner
Located in a spectacular part of Ireland at the very tip of Dingle Peninsula,these cottages overlook lush green fields facing the Atlantic ocean.To the west there is the beautiful Sybil Head.A very short walk takes one down to a beautiful sandy beach and connects with the Dingle Way.
Clogher Head ,Dunmore Head,Mount Eagle.The Blasket centre,Blasket Island and many other attractions are only a short drive away.The town of Dingle is a little further,but easily accessible for shopping,dinner or an evening out at the pub.
This is the real Ireland where cattle graze peacefully by the sea and the signs are in Gaelic.Its hard to believe that places like this exist anymore....looks like it is part of a movie set.It quickly became home base for us either to explore Kerry,or recently,more ofton when tired of being on the road,just to stay home and hike the trails without ever having to drive anywhere.
The cottage is both cozy and roomy with a modern kitchen,fireplace and three bedrooms.It is always very clean and the owners are exceptionally accommodating.In short it is a jewel of a place and a place that will create Irish memories for a lifetime.I feel it is my home when I am in Ireland and look forward to coming back
