RIVER COTTAGE

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

Priceless Memories

  • 5 of 5
I think Nick already entered the comments I left in their guest book, but I wanted to be sure to put a review on here and provide my 5 star rating. River Cottage is STUNNING. Being able to sit and enjoy a cup of coffee while taking in the mountain view behind the cottage before everyone else was up is a memory I won't soon forget. My daughters have already asked to go back and see the donkeys. I highly recommend staying at River Cottage. I don't think its possible to not enjoy the scenery there. The location was perfect for exploring. I'd go back in a minute!

Owner's Response: Oh Thanks so much! 'STUNNING' is an adjective that is more usually & liberally used by real estate agents when describing a property for sale. But we are more than happy to receive superlative comments such as this and try in every case to both match the description of our traditional Irish cottage to the actual holiday but also add a 'service element' that creates some good memories of the holiday. Jeni and her family were a delight to host and we would be very happy if they returned to River Cottage again one day.

We had a wonderful stay at River Cottage. It was everything one could hope for in a holiday house, a home from home for a week.Thank you Nick and Anne and family for letting us share your beautiful spot in Kerry. Our boys, 4 and 6 absolutely loved the animals, running abit wild and the lego and dvds when they had worn themselves out! It is a great location halfway to Dingle and Killarney for exploring beaches, Slea Head and Muckross House & traditional farms in Killarney. So many highlights, we could easily have stayed another week!

Owner's Response: Thanks for your kind comments.
We've had a lot of experience over the years trying to travel and stay in 'strange' places ourselves with lots of children in tow whilst keeping them amused and there's no doubt that a large collection of pet animals, a stream to get wet and muddy in, a safe and large expanse of grounds, a box of lego and some Disney movies is not bad for starters !!

Wer'e only glad that some of these were appreciated by you all. We'd love to have you come and stay again.

Great stay

  • 4 of 5
We had a lovely time in River cottage. We were there for one week with 2 small children and the setup is ideal! They thoroughly enjoyed the animals and we were able to relax when they were outside as it is a totally safe environment. Nick and Anne are extremely helpful and well organised and the girls very welcoming. Being exactly 10 minutes drive from Inch beach, we were there every day - ate at Sammy´s a few times, built many sand castles, went for long walks etc. The cottage is also a good base for Dingle, Annascaul and we took the scenic route to Camp a few times which I highly recommend. This accommodation works very well for a family and for exploring Kerry. And even though it was August, we did enjoy a few log fires in the comfy sitting room at night.

Wonderful River Cottage!!

  • 5 of 5
River Cottage is lovely!! Well restored, yet updated with all the modern conveniences. It is very well appointed and is spacious as well..... And that is only the architecture.
Nick and Anne could not have been more accommodating. Nick always responded promptly when I emailed prior to our arrival. And, when we missed our flight, he responded to my rather anxious communication with calming words. And they were always there to answer any of our questions.
The cottage is located in a traditional small town on the Dingle Peninsula. We felt like one of the locals by the end of the week! It is most welcoming and is well located for trips to Dingletown and Killarney.
Needless to say, we are planning a trip back next year.

Owner's Response: The River Cottage location is indeed one of its many strengths. It is set amongst 4 acres on the Dingle Peninsula , with views of the sea and yet is only 2 mins from the local shop, 10 mins from the local pub and within 30 mins. of both Killarney and Dingle Towns - the two most popular destinations in Kerry. Being 150 yrs old, River Cottage is one of the oldest cottages around and has been lovingly restored over the past ten years. It retains the charm of a traditional small Irish stone farmhouse - Thankfully!

Owner's Response: John really enjoyed the endless opportunities for wonderful scenic photography all around the Dingle Peninsula. The location of the cottage enabled him to explore much of the Ring of Kerry as well as the whole of the Dingle Peninsula. I think he even went to the Cliffs of Moher in County Clare! As with all our guests, he was very respectful of our lovely old cottage and the antique furniture inside. We would love to host him here again.

Zum Wohlfühlen

  • 5 of 5
Ein altes Steinhaus, eingerichtet mit antiken Möbeln und modernem Komfort. Sehr geschmackvoll und zum Wohlfühlen.
Besonders den Kamin im Wohnzimmer und die Ruhe haben wir genossen.
Nick und Ann sind wunderbare Menschen und sehr hilfsbereit, wenn es um die Erkundung der Gegend geht oder bei speziellen Wünschen mit Ihrem eigenen Hausstand auszuhelfen.
Auch die Haustiere sind sehr zutraulich und statteten uns ab und zu mal einen Besuch ab.
Während unseres Aufenthaltes ging leider der Brenner der Ölheizung kaputt. Nick scheute keine Mühen, sie so schnell wie möglich reparieren zu lassen und uns in der Zwischenzeit mit Gasofen und elektrisch aufgeheiztem Wasser für Bad und Küche zu versorgen. Bei der Abrechnung des Ölverbrauchs am Ende zeigte er sich sehr kulant. Auch den zusätzlichen Verbrauch von Strom und Gas hat er nicht berechnet. Man merkt, dass Nick und Ann etwas daran liegt, dass man sich dort wohl fühlt.
Überhaupt fand ich die Iren sehr nett. Abends in Dingle (der nächsten Stadt) ist in vielen Pubs irische Lifemusik. Am besten hat mir gefallen, wenn sich weibliche Stimme und instrumentale Musik abgewechselt haben.
In der Nähe vom River Cottage ist der Inch Beach. Eine Landzunge, die zu einem wunderschönen Spaziergang einlädt. Beim Versuch, die Spitze zu erreichen, hat man das Gefühl, nie anzukommen. Also, besser genug Zeit mitbringen.
Wir waren Ende Februar dort. Der Wind war kalt und die Sonne warm. Manchmal war es auch windstill oder ganz bewölkt. Geregnet hat es komischerweise nicht. Überall blühten schon die Osterglocken. Auf jeden Fall warme Kleidung mitbringen. Auch für das Haus.
Da scheint morgens übrigens die Sonne rein.
In Milltown gibt es einen Bioladen und samstags ist in der alten Kirche „organic market“. Den muss man gesehen haben.

Owner's Response: Holger and Jaly were such understanding people since it was February and the boiler broke down!! In these unforeseen circumstances, all you can do is try and sort out the problem as soon as possible (which we did) and give something back to the guests, so that it didn't affect their holiday. We're so glad that Holger and Jaly were able to get the most out of their week in this most beautiful part of Europe.

Notes:
RIVER COTTAGE is at least 150 years old and is a classic 'Three room stone-built Kerry farmhouse'. It has been sympathetically renovated over the last ten years, retaining many of the features of the original cottage, including slate floors, lime wash walls, sash windows and the large open fireplace and wood burning stove in the main living room. The cottage has full oil-fired central heating and has a southerly aspect so is light , cosy and warm throughout the year. The spacious kitchen and dining area have been added on to the back of the cottage and were designed for our own family of nine. As such, they provide extensive entertaining, cooking and relaxation space for a small cottage and open out onto the wooden decking and barbeque area and pictoresque cottage garden at the rear. Views of Caherconree (Ireland's 4th highest mountain) and the Slieve Mish mountains are possible from both the kitchen and dining areas.
