Overview

Dingle Peninsula Cottage Rental Photos and Description

Two stone cottages, 'ANNIES', sleeping 6 and 'RIVER', sleeping 4 , near Inch

River Farm comprises two cottages for rental - ANNIES COTTAGE, sleeping 6 and one of the most popular holiday cottages in Kerry and RIVER COTTAGE, sleeping 4 - an original Kerry Farmhouse that has been lovingly renovated and updated over the last ten years. Both cottages are surrounded by fields and a small stream runs through the property. It is very safe for children as both cottages are approached via a small ‘dead end’ lane which runs up to the mountain behind the cottages. The owners fields are occupied by pet sheep and lambs (in season), together with donkeys and free range hens. Views of the sea are possible from the garden as well as from Annie’s Cottage. Inch Beach with it's four miles of white sand and dunes(and increasingly a surfing and paragliding mecca) is no more than 15 minutes drive, whilst the beauty of Killarney National Park and it's lakes are also within easy reach. A local grocery shop (8am to 10pm, daily) is only 10 mins. walk away. Dogs are welcome.

Proximity to the best Kerry attractions and sites: Annie's Cottage is ideally situated for Killarney National Park, and the Kerry Way, the Dingle Peninsula and Tralee.

A 30 minute drive will allow you to visit Muckross House, the famous Killarney Lakes, Angel Falls, Ross Castle, the old Copper mInes, the Gap of Dunloe and Kate Kearney's Cottage as well as walk throughout the beautiful meadows, mountains and woods of Killarney National Park.

From Killarney you can embark on the Kerry Way by foot or cycle or drive to the end of the Ring of Kerry (and back) visiting Killorglin, Glebeigh, Caherciveen, Valentia Island, Waterville, Caherdaniel, Sneem and Kenmare - a memorable journey indeed.

Similar excursions by car and foot can take place on the Dingle Peninsular discovering the wild scenery, breathtaking mountain passes and white sandy beaches. This peninsular also has the highest concentration of megalithic sites in Europe.

A catalogue of festivals - food, music, culture, film and horseracing - take place throughout the year

Guestbook comments from the manager

When sick, I can't think of a better locale, a better cottage or better hosts with which to attempt to get well. Thanks for your help.

We tried to cram too much into this trip but overall, we don't regret it. We did a beautiful tour of the Dingle Peninsula, met many nice people on the way, traveled cross country from Dublin and more...

Thanks for being an important part of that experience.Hope to meet again.

Idyllic and restful

  • 4 of 5

We had a wonderful few days here. Nick and Anne looked after us really well. The weather was not on our side until the final day when we were treated to some sun and rainbows everywhere! Beautiful surroundings, we had everything we needed for a quiet, relaxing retreat.

wonderful spot!!

  • 5 of 5

Three of us stayed in Annie's Cottage for a three-day visit to Dingle and Killarney, and LOVED it. Nick and family were fabulous hosts, offering suggestions for music, food and sights, and checking to be sure we had everything we needed. The cottage has very comfortable furnishings, beautiful wall hangings, as well as lots of hot water and heat. And the family donkeys were a big hit! Highly recommend it to all!

Wonderful cottage in a wonderful location.

  • 5 of 5

Wonderful cottage in a wonderful location. We traveled with our two girls in order to try to get a farm experience. We loved being on the little farm and the girls fed the donkeys and sheep every day. Nick and Ann were super hosts. They were more than helpful in giving us insights into the local attractions. Nick even took the girls through the extensive organic gardens and showed them how they could help take care of it.

We also loved being right between Tralee, Dingle, and Kilarney. There is so much to do and so much beauty in the area. We have traveled all over Ireland and must say this is our favorite spot since it offers a bit of everything - natural beauty, tourist attractions, local pubs and restaurants, museums etc. We recommend Lorna's Phoenix Restaurant just down the street, kayaking in Dingle, and the Kerry Museum in Tralee.

Owner's Response: David, Laura and the girls were delightful, respectful and very friendly guests. They thoroughly enjoyed their three weeks here and were able to experience two of our four traditional cottages in their time here on the Dingle Peninsula. Being a teacher, David was always open to learning new things about Ireland and was instrumental in getting his girls to thoroughly immerse themselves in Irish country life! For Laura, there was some interesting examples of how local food is best produced and presented in some of the farm markets and local organic restaurants. Our own girls made good friendships with their girls and it was an altogether great 'family time' for both of our families. We hope to be able to catch up with them at some point in the future again Nick & Anne

Relaxing Week

  • 5 of 5

River Cottage was exactly as advertised. Very clean and a comfortable base from which to explore Dingle and Killarney. The owners were very helpful when we discovered the plug adaptor we had borrowed before leaving home did not work. I would recommend this cottage to anyone who likes a cottage vacation.

Annie's Cottage was a week of charm and comfort!!!

  • 5 of 5

My wife Malissa and I spent 6 months planning our Ireland holiday. We searched almost every place we could think of looking for the perfect place to stay during our Dingle portion of the trip. We found Annie's cottage and contacted Nick about staying for a week. He was very accommodating and helpful. When we arrived, Nick greeted us and made us feel more than welcome. He offered us the run of the property and introduced us to his family and all the animals. The cottage is very cozy and has an old world charm about it. We checked on the ewes and their new lambs every morning and fed the donkeys carrots at least twice a day. We chose Annie's cottage as a good central location to stay the nights. But, it immediately became a highlight of our trip to the Dingle penninsula!

Thank You Nick & Annie!!!!!
