Tra Cinn Aird (Kinard Beach) is a 3 bedroom property on 1 acre of garden and patio overlooking Dingle Bay and the Atlantic ocean, situated just 100 yards from the beach.
The raised position of the house affords majestic 360 degree views of the ocean, mountains and the neighbouring Iveragh peninsula (see video).
At night the location becomes a natural 'dark-sky park'. The elevated site above a low horizon affords a wonderful opportunity to view a sky of exceptional nighttime beauty unpolluted by artificial light. Stand on the patio, see the stars and be awed by the Milky Way.
The vibrant town of Dingle, crammed with quality restaurants, traditional pubs, art galleries and coffee shops is just 4 miles away.
The area is renowned for its folk/literary history, traditional music, archaeological sites, walking trails and golfing amidst outstanding scenic beauty. Water based activities include sea angling, trips to the Blasket Islands and to see Fungi, the Dingle Dolphin.
At the house, you can read, write, draw or paint in perfect peace and tranquility. You can listen to the ocean, watch gannets dive for fish and trawlers haul their nets. Alternatively you can choose an all action vacation. Or a bit of both....
Whichever you prefer; relax, enjoy, re-energize and be inspired!

We holidayed in Dingle for many years and love its unique charm and natural beauty. Tra Cinn Aird is our dream location. We stay in and read and paint or entertain. We go out and walk or fish or play golf. We live in Cork and stay at Tra Cinn Aird often. Peter & Mary

Our family had a wonderful week at Tra Cinn Aird! The large yard and easy access to the peaceful beach were perfect for our two young children. The house has all of the amenities that are needed and the proximity to Dingle was very convenient. Peter was a perfect host- very responsive before the trip and available during our stay (although we didn't need anything). I am back in NH now wishing I was there.
Delightful Stay Near Dingle
We spent a week at Tra Cinn Aird in early March 2017. What a lovely place from which to explore this idyllic part of Ireland! It was great to be so close to Dingle (5-10 minute drive) but yet feel as if you're at the end of the Earth. The home is delightful with an amazing vista! Bedrooms were nice, enjoyed fireplace and sound system, and well-equipped kitchen. Peter offered great recommendations on restaurants and things to do. We would definitely recommend Tra Cin Aird to others!
I won't waste your time...if you are looking for a lovely, quiet, relaxing home with a majestic view, look no further - the people of Ireland are the most friendly in the world - the Dingle Peninsula was Beautiful and Peaceful - the dining was some the best that I have ever had...some recommendations include Ida's, Chart House, Doyle's, Ashes, Global Village, Out of the Blue, Chowder...we never had a bad meal - I was playing catch with a local inhabitant...and I asked, 'Is this Heaven?'...He replied, 'No...it is Tra Cinn Aird'
What a place!
From the moment you drive down the country lane toward the sea and turn into the driveway, your jaw drops open! Never have we seen such a home and a view. Peter is a wonderful host. The home is so well -furnished. All that you need. Very clean. We two couples especially appreciated the bedrooms on opposite sides of the house. A beautiful base to explore the Dingle Peninsula but we couldn't wait to hurry home and just take in the sea view.
A gem in the most perfect setting
I stayed at Tra Cinn Aird in early July of 2015. After landing in Shannon, I took a long daytime nap at the Park Inn, which is walking distance from the airport. I strongly recommend this stop, as being well rested makes the drive to Dingle more enjoyable. It was easy to make a daytime reservation online using between9and5.com.
I woke up for an early evening drive to Tra Cinn Aird, while it was still light. Once I reached the peninsula, I enjoyed the loveliest drive of my life, enchanted by the views through my windshield. I arrived at the house as the evening light was just fading. Though the hour was late, the owners were pleasant and accommodating. Once they left, I walked around the house and determined that I was the most brilliant person on the planet for booking such a gem! Though the pictures on the website are accurate, the comfort of the house and beauty of the location exceeded my expectations set by the images.
The house was exceptionally comfortable and appointed with everything one needs for a vacation. As an added bonus, much of the artwork on the walls was painted by the host. The image of the cows walking slowly in the road matched the only rush--hour style traffic I experienced on the peninsula.
The Slea Head Drive is well worth the time. I went twice -- first in a tour van, then in my rental car. If you are a careful and patient driver, you might find it more enjoyable to be behind the wheel as the views are spectacular. I enjoyed a great tour of the Adare Castle ruins, as the guide provided interesting history and insights. I also loved the herb garden at the Burren Perfumery and Floral Centre. On one of our long drives north, we ended up at Woodville Walled Garden in Galway, which turned out to be a happy diversion as we enjoyed a detailed tour by the head gardener.
Though the Cliffs of Moher was a beautiful sight to see, I found it to be overrun by tourists who completely ignore the signs intended to prohibit people from climbing over the fence and plummeting to their deaths. As the idiots even ran along the cliff's edge, I fully expected to see Darwinian principles in action. Visit very early in the morning or skip it.
If I had the opportunity to do it all over again, I would spend more time at this perfect house staring through the window at the view of the sea stack.
I apologize that am long overdue in writing this review, but an upcoming trip to a different location prompted me to reminisce.
