FARMHOUSE WITH MAGNIFICENT SEA VIEWS

Dingle Peninsula Farmhouse Rental Photos and Description

4 bedroom farmhouse sleeps 8 near Dingle

Old farmhouse refurbished as a holiday home with magnificent views of Dingle Bay, Skellig Rocks and the Atlantic. Four bedrooms, sleeping 8. €350-575 per week. Excellently situated for exploring the Dingle Peninsula and surrounding Kerry countryside.

The Dingle Peninsula has a lot to offer. Dingle Town (12km) has plenty of pubs and restaurants to suit most tastes. There is traditional Irish music and dancing for the energetic; and some of the finest seafood to be found in Ireland. Dingle Town hosts an aquarium and the most famous local attraction is a visit to see Fungi, the friendly Dingle dolphin, at the mouth of the harbour where he has lived for twenty years.

Also in the area there are pottery and craft stores, one of which offers the opportunity to test your own pottery skills! Excellent golf courses, sandy beaches with shore angling, and bike hire is available; as is horse-riding. There are many archaeological sites in the west of the peninsula with plenty of walks linking them, most notably the Dingle Way. The property overlooks the impressive Iron Age Dunbeg Fort.

The house itself has four bedrooms (3 double, 1 twin), and is able to sleep ten. An infant’s cot is also available.

The living room boasts an open coal / peat fire, with the house also having storage heating. There is a large, walled front garden with fantastic views and a private drive up to the side of the house. Worth a special mention is the Stone House restaurant and bar, which is a short walk from the house.

The house offers the opportunity to stay within easy reach of the Dingle peninsula’s renowned tourist attractions; whilst retaining a quiet and idyllic setting overlooking the expanse of the Atlantic Ocean.

Guestbook comments from the owner
The house had everything we needed, and our children enjoyed the presence of the dogs and cats in the farmyard behind, not to mention the cows and sheep across the road.

Location is ideal, to the extent that we didn't travel more than eight miles from the house any day during the week, but visited three great beaches, an aquarium, three historic buildings and two museums, as well going hill-walking and sea-kayaking.

'TWAS A GRAND STAY FOR THE MONTH OF APRIL 2014

'Twas a Grand Stay for the Month of April 2014
  • 5 of 5
Upon arrival at "Jack's House" the first impression was the spectacular view. This was confirmed by the periodical stopping of tour vans in front of the house. Our month long stay was highlighted by the birthing of lambs and calves on the farm next door. Our neighbors, Denis and Mary were gracious and welcoming. They made our experience one we will never forget. Ireland is a beautiful country; but it is the people you meet that stay in your heart. My wife and I highly recommend Jack's House for the beauty of the area and the warmth of its neighbors.

STUNNING VIEWS AND CUTE LITTLE LAMBS

  • 5 of 5
We were a group of 3 adults and 2 children who stayed 4 days at this property. The views are stunning, since the front of the house faces the Atlantic and the Iveragh penninsula. The beds were comfortable, and there was ample room for us. This is a traditional old farmhouse like you see them all over the Irish countryside - my husband and his sister were delighted since they grew up in pretty much the same kind of house. The kids didn't care much for the view but loved the lambs - we were there during lambing season and I think 16 lambs were born while we stayed there. The caretakers next door, despite being so busy with lambing and calving, took time to let the kids hold and pet the lambs each evening - a big thanks especially to the daughter of them, who was lovely with our kids. Location-wise, the Dingle way is accessible on foot by walking about 400m or so along the Slea head drive (which passes in front of the house), and we did a bit of it (not much - kids complaining too much), with amazing, gorgeous views. Dunbeg Fort is right next door, though we didn't go there on this trip. Dunquin and Cumenoole Beach are pretty close. Our recommendation for cafe fare and beautiful, stunning pottery made on the premises is the Louis Mulcahey Pottery and Cafe in Clogher, on the Slea Head drive a little after Dunquin. We ate a light lunch there every day. Highly recommended.
We would definitely stay at this property again!

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for your lovely review. I'm glad you had a great time, being there in the lambing season is brilliant for little children. Hope to have you back in the future, Lorna.

BEST NIGHTS SLEEP!

  • 5 of 5
Took our grandchildren away for Easter 2012. Really comfortable house. Lovely fire in the evenings and the beds were so comfortable! After long walks on long, deserted beaches, what more could you ask for?

LOVELY HOUSE

  • 5 of 5
We had a fantastic time in Fahan - the house was warm and comfortable, with plenty of room for our large family (6 of us). The area is absolutely beautiful and there is lots to do in all weather - we enjoyed the beaches at Slea Head and Ventry, music & fun in Dingle, Oceanworld in Dingle & our boat trip to see Fungi the Dolphin.

JUST PERFECT

  • 5 of 5
As my wife and I return to "reality", I just wanted to write and express our thoughts after a week at your home.

The house was exactly what we were seeking for a true getaway from the everyday stresses! It was comfortable, clean, convienent to local attractions, and in an absolutely stunning setting. I must also mention your aunt who was an outstanding hostess! Not only that, but the proprietor of the Stonehouse was just as accomodating as we found it to be a great "local" spot.

I highly recommend your home for any traveler seeking a place to stay on the Dingle Peninsula (actually have recommended to several others here in the US who are looking to make the trip).

Thanks again, and we are hopeful that we can make it back to the Peninsula for another getaway....maybe for a longer period of time next time.


Thanks Again

NOTES FROM OUR BLOG - OUR FAVORITE "COTTAGE"

Notes from our blog - our favorite "cottage"
  • 5 of 5
This cottage (family farmhouse built in 1930s) was our favorite out of seven self-catering cottages we stayed at during a six week cycling trip in Ireland, May/June 2010. Here are just a few comments from our blog on www.crazyguyonabike.com

http://www.crazyguyonabike.com/doc/?o=RrzKj&doc_id=6979&v=8i

Beautiful location way out on Slea Head -the bedrooms, especially, have great views of the sea right across the sloping, rock walled, pasture. We have sheep in a small field right next door who welcomed us. The wind comtinues to howl, but we're pretty cozy in our cottage. It's rather gray and cloudy looking across the choppy sea to Ring of Kerry (Iveragh Peninsula), but the forecast is for sun for a few days now - we'll see what tomorrow brings.

We were greeted once again with sunshine - today with calm winds as well. We enjoyed some time on the front lawn in the warm air (and holding kitties). We had decided to have more of a walking day before the four travel (cycling) days we have ahead of us. It was a wonderful day of just enjoying our cottage overlooking Dingle Bay. This spot is very hard to leave - I can just soak in the peacefulness of watching the sea.

After a very relaxed morning, we went up part of the Dingle Way Walking Trail above our cottage. The area is known as Fahan or Fan - an area of prehistoric structures 500 - 2000 bc. The trail was high enough to see a number of them (beehive huts) scattered throughout the rock-walled fields - amongst the sheep. There are also a few old houses abandoned during the famine years.

We went to a new French restaurant in Ventry for an early dinner for my birthday and then did a little wifi(at post/shop). Our day was a really nice break and a beautiful place to enjoy Ireland. Off on the bikes tomorrow.
