Secluded and magical

  • 5 of 5
We arrived one night last December fighting a real gale - and stepped inside to very Irish coziness and tranquility, complete with blazing peat fires!

The cottage was more than comfortable; it was an oasis of West Irish hospitality, surrounded by lush, green hills, secluded seaside and Mt Brandon. A short trip down the road and we could pick up supplies, including the best home-baked bread I've ever tasted, in the charming Gaeltacht village of Cloghane. We felt like residents, not tourists, and somehow that made all the difference.

When I want to relax, I picture myself back there, listening to the wind, abundant birdsong, distant waves and the babbling brook that runs alongside the house. We'll return to experience the cottage in the summer, I know.

Owner's Response: Thank you for taking the time to write a review on your stay at Direen Cottage. The night you arrived was the first of a number of serious storms this winter! That sort of weather can alarm many visitors so it is all the more important that we provide a warm, cosy and comfortable welcome and the turf fire does so much to create this. Cloghane Village and the Bacus Bakery/shop are less than a mile from the cottage and their proximity to the cottage is of great benefit to visitors. I am glad you were made to feel so welcome in the village as we all like to make visitors feel welcome and to see people taking part in the activities of the area.Many guests to the cottage have commented and enjoyed the small stream running alongside the cottage where there is a large enclosed garden with birdsong and wildlife plentiful. We look forward to welcoming you back to the cottage again, some day soon.

Comfy Peat fires...

  • 5 of 5
I recently stayed at Direen Cottage for a week with a friend. It was a wonderfully comfortable, spacious, well-equipped home for that week, complete with comforting peat fires in the den in the evening as we dealt with the day's photographs. It's important to say these days that the wifi was speedy and reliable and secure. We also managed to produce wonderful meals in the well-equipped kitchen. It was a great location and we were able to explore all the roads on Dingle, even mastering daily trips over the Conor pass and back. Thanks again and highly recommended.

Owner's Response: We are glad that you had a very comfortable stay at Direen Cottage. The WIFI is a new addition to the cottage this year and it is good to know that it is speedy, reliable and secure.The turf fire and stove are optional for heat in the cottage but if you enjoy a good fire they add a cosy and comfortable feel to the cottage. We hope to meet again one day!

Owner's Response: We are so glad your children had such a good time in the garden! If the children are happy the adults have a good holiday. The 2 swings give hours of amusement, as well as plenty of tree climbing and a small stream running through the garden. The garden is enclosed making a very safe play space. The garden is so peaceful with birdsong, swaying trees and the flowing stream the only sounds to be heard. We hope you will be back again before too long!

FANTASTIC HIDEWAY

  • 4 of 5
What a beautiful place. Accommodation was spacious, well equipped and very comfortable. Tucked away in its own secluded spot but still very much within easy distance of pubs shop and beautiful walks. The information pack at the cottage has plenty of ideas for places to go and things to do. We had 6 in our group which the cottage was able to accommodate us very comfortably. The surrounding areas were truly awesome, breathtaking scenery. In particular Glanteenassig woods and lakes. (ask Eamon and Janet for directions) but well worth it. Always exciting was Connor Pass to get to the lovely town of Dingle which has all the amenities. Worth checking out the pubs in evening for live Irish music. If love walking, playing music, doing painting or just relaxing this is definitely great place to come.

The perfect holiday base

  • 5 of 5
I came in search of peace and quiet and a place to think and just be. I found it. Every morning I woke to birdsong and the sound of the wee brook that runs at the side. Some mornings it was sunny, some mornings it rained. It's Ireland. It does that all the time. No two minutes are ever the same. The light is constantly changing - which is great if you like taking photographs and you're interested in art. It's not surprising that so many painters and sculptors have chosen to live in the area.

The cottage itself is homely, comfortable and well-equipped. I was on my own, but I enjoyed the space and cosy turf fires. There are two story-telling chairs next to one fireplace, I noticed. Perfect for long winter nights. And there are loads of books to read. Great for small group holidays and families. Bring musical instruments!

Janet and Eamonn are warm, hospitable owners. In fact, everyone in and around Cloghane seems to be warm and hospitable. Don't miss Tintean Ceoil on Monday nights. It's a must.

I couldn't get a mobile phone signal here or pick up a signal for my mobile broadband - but then I wanted peace and quiet, so it suited me very well. Don't let that put you off. Most cafes and bars have free wi-fi and the mobile signals come into play about a kilometer away.

Great walking here, swimming, cycling, eating, drinking, music, storyteling and poetry - whatever you want. Go and look for it. Talk to people.

Lovely Stay

  • 5 of 5
We had an excellent time at Direen! There were 5 of us in my group. We had more than enough room for each other (to have our seperate time) and all our stuff. The cottage had everything we needed. It felt like home and was so nice to come back to at night after traveling around all day. Very clean and organized. The woodwork around the house is fabulous. There are so many things close by that we were never at a loss for things to do. Connor Pass wasn't far and was always an exciting trip to Dingle.
Direen is secluded so it's quiet and beautiful. In the summer it would be awesome to sit outside and enjoy. Might have to plan that for next time! Thank you so much Eamonn and Janet. I really appreciate your time and care in making our trip wonderful.
