Overview

About the property

3 sleeping rooms, 2 open fire places,

It is a cozy, extensively furnished, freshly renovated house with 2 Irish style living rooms (each with open fireplace), 3 bedrooms. It’s ideal for families. You have a view of mountains and cliffs, 3 minute walk to the bay. The house and the area offer possibilities for both a quiet, restive, and an active sporty holiday. An information/address brochure is located in the house. Many Airlines offer cheap flights from the continent to Ireland. Ryanair, Easyjet and HLX fly to Shannon Airport from a lot of different locations all over Europe.

Fishing: Very good fishing spots on easily accessible cliffs nearby the house. Beach and pier fishing spots are also available. Catch mackerels, conger and pollocks from these spots. Deep sea fishing trips on chartered boats are available from Dingle and Ballydavid. Catch tuna and shark! In the house you will find 2 books written by Bob Moss, a famous local fisherman. He describes all fishing spots and possibilities of the area around. Lough Caum near Castlegregory provides good brown trout fishing as well as Mount Eagle lake. Permits and boats available locally.

Hiking and day trips: Ballincolla is situated at the Dingle Way. Along its 178 km (110 miles) length, the Dingle Way traverses pristine sandy beaches bordering on crystal seas, fuchsia and gorse lined green roads leading through pastoral countryside, heather and bracken covered hills, and mountain passes up to 700 meters (2000 feet) high. Climb Mount Brandon, Irelands second highest mountain (3277 feet), or enjoy easier walks to Cloger Head, Sybil Head or Mount Brandon. Boats leave Dunquin for the The Great Blasket Island from May to October. Abandoned in 1954, these islands were home of famous Gaelic authors, e.g. Peig Sayers and Sean O'Crohan. The Blasket Islands are of great importance for breeding seabirds. The sea cliffs, and deep ocean ensure the islands are home to a diversity of breeding seabirds amongst the highest in Ireland or Britain. The famous 'Ring of Kerry' on the Iveragh Peninsula (one of the most beautiful Coast Roads in the world) can easily be driven in a one days car trip.

Kids and Culture: The Dingle Peninsula is dotted with beautiful strands and beaches, perfect locations for a family day out. On Ventry beach, there is a water sports centre run by Jamie Knox, with a huge choice of water sports activities on offer. The kids can hire body boards, wetsuits, or take a spin in a Donut! Ventry is a Blue Flag beach, with lifeguards on duty during the busy summer months. Other family friendly beaches include Beenbawn near Dingle, Cappagh Strand near Brandon, and Wine Strand situated between the villages of Ballydavid and Ballyferriter. A lot of nice pubs are found all over the Dingle Peninsula. Enjoy music sessions, bar food and meet locals.

Nice home in one of the most beautiful places in the world.

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for 2 weeks and had a lovely time in the area. I had the pleasure of being near my aunt,uncle and cousins within a few hundred yards away. The house was nice and in good shape. The house was ready when we arrived. I would stay again.

Komplett eingerichtetes Ferienhaus in idyllischer Lage

  • 5 of 5

Wir waren 6 Erwachsene und ein Baby, dessen 1 jährigen Geburtstag in Ballincolla gefeiert wurde. Die räumlichen Gegebenheiten waren für uns völlig ausreichend. Besonders beim Frühstück konnten wir die herrliche Aussicht durch das große Glasfenster genießen. Eigentlich wollten wir den Ring of Kerry umrunden, aber wir hatten auf der Halbinsel Dingle genug zum Ansehen, sodass die Woche im Handumdrehen vorüber war.

Man muss dort länger hin !!!

Owner's Response: Wir sind auch der Meinung, daß man dort länger hin muss. Am besten mindestens 14 Tage!

Geräumige Unterkunft in traumhafter Lage

  • 5 of 5

Wir hatten eine herrliche Woche auf der Dingle-Halbinsel trotz sehr "irischen" Wetters. Die Unterkunft ist aussergewöhnlich gut ausgestattet mit Büchern, Filmen, Spielen und allem, was man bei Regenwetter so brauchen kann - auch in der Küche fehlt es an gar nichts. Zwei Kamine tun ihr übriges, dass man es auch bei Regen und Sturm schön gemütlich hat. Bei gutem (und natürlich auch schlechtem) Wetter gibt es in der näheren Umgebung so viel zu sehen, dass man locker ein bis zwei Wochen zur gründlichen Erkundung hier verbringen kann. Die Fahrt zur Blasket-Insel ist lohnenswert, ebenso der Slea-Head Drive und diverse Küstenspaziergänge, z.B. ab Clogher Beach oder vorbei am Blasket Center.

Das Haus ist sehr ruhig gelegen und man ist schnell am Strand, aber auch im nächsten Ort mit Pub und kleinem Laden.

Owner's Response: Dem ist wenig hinzuzufügen. Wir freuen uns darüber, daß es Ihnen gefallen hat! Wir verbringen nun schon seit 20 Jahren viel Zeit in dieser traumhaften Gegend und haben immer noch nicht alles entdeckt.....wir kommen wieder!

Alles Top

  • 5 of 5

Man findet gar keine Worte um zu beschreiben, wie schön es ist. Das Meer gleich um die Ecke, herrlicher Blick auf Berge und Weite, Land, Wolken , Sonne, Regenbögen. Es ist total ruhig und idyllisch mit jeder Menge Platz im Haus und um das Haus drumrum. Man kann hinterm Haus die schönsten Sonnenunter - und vorm Haus die schönsten Sonnenaufgänge sehen. Die Gegend ist einfach der Hammer und die Ausstattung des Hauses lässt nichts zu wünschen übrig. In ca 20 Minuten ( mit dem Auto) ist man in Dingle, wo es sich hervorragend einkaufen lässt und in noch weiniger Zeit ist man an den diversen herrlichen Stränden. Sehr zu empfehlen ist der Wine Strand, gleich um die Ecke und Clogher Head mit wahrlich spektakulärem Blick auf eine der Blasket Islands ( the sleeping giant), nebst umwerfender Brandung - bei genug Wind. Dort nebenan die Töpferei von Louis Mulcahy, auf jeden Fall einen Besuch wert. Auch sehr schön ist Minard Strand in Lispole bei Annascaul, der Inch Strand und der Annascaul Lake.
