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

Wonderful Cottage. The setting is magnificent! I can say that this was a reflection of my journey in this part of my life. Will be back and enjoy this once again - the next time will be with my family and grandchildren. Thanks once again.

The perfect country getaway

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I travel to Ireland often and memories of our time in Dingle are right at the top of our experiences. Nick's cottage is just charming and everything we were looking for in a home base for our travels around Ireland. The area is charming. We met some of the locals and enjoyed heading down for lunch at inch Beach. It's also an easy and scenic drive right into Dingell proper. It was lambing season and such fun to see all of the little ones frolicking about the countryside. I can't recommend this place more wholeheartedly. It was just such a wonderful stay. Thank you so much and we look forward to returning! - Corbin and Thatcher

Owner's Response: Corbin and Thatcher were lovely appreciative guests. They seemed to thoroughly enjoy their stay at River Cottage and we would gladly host them again, should they decide to visit Kerry on a future occasion. Regards, Nick & Anne

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.

River Cottage

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!

I'm not a good writer but I can say that I enjoyed my stay. Ann and Nic are nice people and did a great jop and Yala gave me a very warm welcome.

Anytime again

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.

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.
