NEWLY BUILT COTTAGE IN SMALL FISHING VILLAGE.

Dingle Peninsula Cottage Rental Photos and Description

Modern cottage with 4 bedrooms, 4 bath, power showers sleeps 8/10.

This cottage is situated in the small fishing village of Ballydavid on Smerwick Harbour, it has 4 bedrooms, 2 upstairs, a double and a double/twin both of which have their own en suite bathrooms. Downstairs there is a double bedroom en suite and a bunk room with 2 bunk beds, this takes the 4th bathroom as its en suite. There is a large kitchen/dining/sitting room off of which is a sun-room in which to relax and watch the world go by.

The house has a high pressure water system for power showers.

The village has a fishing pier and 2 small sandy beaches, the harbour is ringed by numerous long sandy beaches and cliffs which provide magnificent walks, 'The Dingle way' walking trail goes through the village.

There are two pubs with live traditional Irish music sessions and a warm, relaxed atmosphere.

A short drive from the house are 2 renowned restaurants The Old Pier and Gormans.

It's a 5 mile drive from the charming town of Dingle with it's many shops restaurants and pubs.

Activities: The most endearing feature of this area is the relaxed stress free atmosphere and the clear fresh air from the ocean and mountains. Our advice is to make this a destination and become immersed in the locality rather than using it as a staging point for visiting other places. You will not want to leave and any pre-planned trips will feel like an unwelcome chore. There are many activities available, the beach and cliff walks are fabulous, hill walking of various levels, for golfers there is the beautiful Ceann Sibeal golf course nearby.

Dingle has a scuba diving centre, a sailing centre, a climbing wall and adventure centre, an excellent aquarium.

Horse riding/trekking can be booked at local riding centres and various boat and fishing trips can be made from the Dingle marina. A 'Fungie trip' to see the famous resident Dingle dolphin is almost mandatory.

There are many fine restaurants in Dingle as well as pubs which serve lunch and food all day.

Pubs at night are great 'craic'.

Some history and facts of the area: Smerwick Harbour and its fort, Dún an Óir (the golden fort) is where in 1580 the English - among them Sir Walter Raleigh - massacred several 100 Spaniards and Italians who had landed to support the Munster rising.

Smerwick Harbour was a Viking settlement .The name Smerwick comes from two Norse words, smoer and wik, meaning butter and harbour.

At the end of the peninsula is Slea Head and the treacherous stretch of sea called Blasket Sound, where two ships of the Spanish Armada were smashed to bits in 1588.

In the summer boats cross from Dunquin to the Blasket Islands, now uninhabited but once home to an Irish-speaking community, which became a Mecca for lovers of the language and culture.

The Dingle Peninsula is extraordinarily rich in archaeological remains - some 2,000 monuments have been identified, many dating from the Bronze Age and the Early Christian period.

At Slea head the most westerly point is Garraun Point, this is the nearest part of Western Europe to America.

Gallarus oratory & castle. Kilmalkedar church.: A short walk (3Km) or drive from the village is Gallarus Oratory the small dry-stone church which is among the best-known early Christian sites and dates from 700 or 800 AD.

Nearby is Gallarus Castle which was built by the FitzGeralds and is probably 15th century in date. It is one of the few surviving castles on the Dingle peninsula. It is a four-storey tower with a vaulted ceiling on the fourth floor; none of its battlements remain.

The early Christian ecclesiastical complex at Cill Mhaolchéadair (Kilmalkedar) is also nearby (3Km).

This site is spread over a large area of around 10 acres. The history of this site is associated with St Brendan, but the site is said to have been founded by St Maolcethair. At the centre of this area is a 12th century Romanesque Church, it consists of a nave and chancel. Amongst the other features here are, the Alphabet Stone, A holed Ogham Stone, Sun Dial, two bullaun stones, a large stone cross, St Brendans Oratory and numerous cross slabs.

Beautiful cottage - light, spacious and clean

  • 5 of 5
We stayed in Jimmy and Carol's holiday home for 3 nights. It was a great location, brilliant pubs within a 2 min walk and beach for swimming/rock pool exploring. Lots of beautiful coastal walks accessible directly from the cottage. Cottage was really spacious, nice decor and very clean. The conservatory and outside seating area were a big bonus - we were lucky enough to have a few sunny afternoons. Carol and Jimmy were really helpful and gave lots of advice for activities in the local area. It's a 15 min drive into Dingle, so v.close. Would definitely recommend to friends and hope to be back. One word of advice: sat nav doesn't take you to the right place. Follow signs to Ballydavid's official name: Baile na ngall

Beautiful cottage in a beautiful location!

  • 5 of 5
We were absolutely delighted with our stay in Ballydavid. We arrived after a very long travel day to find fresh scones and jam, and a much-appreciated bottle of wine. The cottage was impeccably clean, comfortable, and spacious enough for our group of 10. We particularly enjoyed relaxing in the sunroom. The location is ideal for exploring the Dingle peninsula, with just a very short walk to the beach, pier, and pubs of Ballydavid, and a short drive to the busy town of Dingle. We loved the nearby cliff walk, and the kids spent hours poking around in the tide pools.
I would absolutely recommend this home to anyone. The owners, Carol and Jimmy were incredibly helpful and friendly. We hope to have the opportunity to return to Ballydavid cottage and spend more time exploring this beautiful corner of Ireland.

Modernes Haus in schöner Umgebung

  • 5 of 5
Die Buchung erfolgte über einen sehr angenehmen E-Mail-Kontakt direkt bei den Eigentümern. Bei Einzug konnte ein sauberes, gepflegtes und voll ausgestattetes Feriendomizil übernommen werden, welches auch hinsichtlich Gebrauchsartikeln wie Toilettenpapier, Holz/Kohle, Seife, Spülmittel etc. keine Wünsche übrig ließ. Das Haus befindet sich auf einem abgeschlossenen Grundstück und ist sowohl für bloße Entspannung als auch Familienurlaub mit Kindern (viele Spiele vorhanden) zu empfehlen. Es ist ein idealer Ausgangspunkt für Wanderungen in West Dingle. Das Straßennetz lässt aber auch entspannte Autofahrten zu entfernteren Zielen zu.
Wir (Reisegruppe von vier Erwachsenen) können das Cottage uneingeschränkt empfehlen.

The Dingle Peninsula or Corca Dhuibhne stretches 30 miles (48 kilometres) into the Atlantic Ocean from Ireland's south-west coast. The peninsula is dominated by the range of mountains that form its spine, running from the Slieve Mish range to Mount Brandon in the west, Ireland's second highest peak. The coastline consists of steep sea-cliffs, broken by sandy beaches, with two large sand spits at Inch in the south and the Maharees to the north. The Blasket Islands lie to the west of the peninsula.

The peninsula has something to offer to everyone. Among other things: sandy beaches safe for swimming, walking routes for all abilities, a thriving Irish language community, a rich musical tradition, fine dining, sea angling, arts and film festivals, talented craftspersons and some of the best surfing in Ireland.

Ballydavid sits on the eastern shore of beautiful Smerwick Harbor on the north west of this peninsula in the shadow of the majestic Mount Brandon.
