Beautiful cottage with absolutely great view!

  • 5 of 5
The cottage is just perfect:
the kitchen simply gemütlich, the big living room with its gorgeous views and the cozy fireplace, the sleeping rooms bright and with very comfortable beds.
Even the bathroom has the same great view over the bay.
Everything perfectly clean and well-maintained, the owner very caring and sympathetic. Big variety of CDs and DVDs in the house.
Fantastic moments in the beautiful garden behind the cottage.
Due to the season we were lucky to watch the sheep and even feed the lambs, unforgettable.
Very kind people all around, authentic traditional music on sunday evenings in Murphy's pub down by the pier.
Delicious breads and cakes in Cloghane nearby, fantastic walks around the corner.
We found everything we hoped to find and definitely recommend a stay in this cottage.

You can not find better

  • 5 of 5
Renting this cottage and staying in this part of Ireland could not have been any better. To begin, Sinead was friendly, helpful, and informative from the beginning of our communications. Upon arrival, the cottage did not disappoint at all. The photographs and descriptions do not do it justice as the cottage was cozy, roomy, and warm. Anything you need is there at the cottage. The location is stunning and the views could not be matched. The surrounding area is very lovely as well and the people are kind, friendly, helpful, and open. It truly made for the most wonderful vacation and I could not recommend this cottage more. It was a perfect experience and I look forward to staying again.

The perfect anniversary retreat!

  • 5 of 5
My wife and I spent 10 days at Murphy's Cottage during a two-week stay in Ireland to celebrate our five-year anniversary. We considered a number of cottages, all on the Dingle Peninsula. Though this one was much larger than we needed we instantly fell in love with the photos we saw, and knew this was our place. We weren't disappointed either! Absolutely as charming as it looks, Murphy's Cottage was truly a home away from home. With views of Dingle Bay, gorgeously dramatic weather, and the lushest and most magnificent shades of green you've ever seen, this is the perfect place for a quiet, romantic getaway. Everything was clean and tidy, the kitchen amply outfitted, the fireplaces cozy, and plenty of books, maps and guides of the area to help you organize your days. The village of Brandon is relatively remote, so this might not be the best place to stay if you plan on setting out for a series of day trips along the west or south coasts. But if you want to settle in and really explore beautiful Dingle Peninsula, you'll be hard-pressed to stay someplace lovelier.

A little slice of heaven

  • 5 of 5
A week of blissful weather capped a wonderful stay in this enchanting holiday home. The setting is so, so beautiful. The house is immaculate, quirky, a home from home and close to some amazing beaches. 4 of us (including 2 small children) enjoyed our week here enormously. The listing is accurate and honest. The joy of sipping wine outside after the kids have gone to bed was inspired by the photo of apperetifs on the patio!

The owner is a dote - charming and knowledgeable about the area.

Thank you.

Heavenly spot.

  • 5 of 5
If you love the mountains and the sea, then this is the place to be.
We spent a week here but wished it had been a month. House is cosy when
necessary and light and open when the sun is shining. Views are hard to
beat and you're up high and part of this magnificent panorama. Great if you like
walking, birding, wild flowers but the house is full of great books and music too.
Really well equipped kitchen, lovely bedrooms and loads of comfy living-space including 3 open fires and a garden you don't want to leave. We've rented lots of houses but this is the best simply because it's a real 'home' away from home.
