About the property

This stunning setting is located at Coomeenole Strand overlooking the Blasket Islands at the very tip of the Dingle Peninsula in West Kerry. This turn of the century stone house stands regally above the sea with a beautiful walking and swimming beach below. Uninteruppted views of the ocean with a direct walk to the beach. The 3 fields adjacent to the house are used by our neighbor for grazing sheep and cows. The village remains as a largely farming and fishing community. It is a 15 minute drive to Dingle Town. The historic Dingle Way walking route is well marked and nearby. Dingle offers excellent dining, shopping, farm markets, fishing and sailing. The many pubs in the town feature the traditional Irish music of West Kerry. Prehistoric and early Christian sites are found throughtout the Dingle Peninnsula.

It is a 2 hour drive from Shannon Airport and a 45 minute drive from Kerry Airport. Train service runs regularly between Dublin, Tralee, and Kerry Airport.

Spectacular scenery and walking trails. There are an abundance of prehistoric sites dating from the 3rd century as well as many early Christian ruins from the 6th and 7th centuries.These sites are accessible to walkers and by car. Another notable feature are the clean, beautiful beaches around the peninsula. The town of Dingle has music in an unusual variety of pubs as well as superb local foods. This is a traditionally Irish speaking region.

Wow! Wow! Wow! Wow! Wow!

  • 5 of 5

"Wow!" is what we heard from each others lips as we got out of our car at Sheila's place in Coomeenole. The 360 degree views are awesome. The house itself is an immaculately kept rustic home that is comfortable for living and lounging. We were two couples who loved the kitchen! It was a terrific space to create meals, gather to plan for the day, then sit with a glass of whiskey or tea and reflect on the day's events.

Great rustic, but comfortable cottage in fantastic location.

  • 5 of 5

Great rustic cottage in fantastic location. Well maintained and has everything needed to feel comfortable. Driving is tough in the area with two-way, one-lane roads. Suggest to get the smallest possible car that still holds all the luggage. Great fishing off the rocks at Dunmore Head in walking distance.

Best rental experience ever

  • 5 of 5

This property is so special: while the pictures on this site are accurate and representative, they don't even begin to do justice to the spectacular setting! The house itself was immaculate and equipped with every necessity, as well as some important extras such as strategically placed light sensitive nightlights and the most excellent library of books and maps. Before arriving my husband and I were a little worried the distance from pubs/shops would be an issue because we wanted to minimize driving, but my concerns never materialized because there was so much to do right there in the Coumeenole/Dunquin area - hiking, reading, and generally relaxing! - and also we rented bikes which made Ballyferriter and Ventry perfect no-car destinations. Normally I am ready to leave a place when the time comes but this outstanding house and location made it tough to move on to the next adventure. Many thanks to Shelia for making the house available and appointing it so perfectly!

Our Safe Place

  • 4 of 5

This was our first trip to Ireland and we had some situations with delayed flights and lost luggage and my wife got sick and needed some medical care. The owner of this property went out of her way with the help of her house keeper to make sure we were good. We appreciate everything they did to help answer questions etc.... The home was wonderful and was more than expected. This is located on a place that is one of the most beautiful places of the world. We are looking forward to coming back and have already share the information to some friends. We have already had one of our photos framed and have it up on our walls to remind us of this incredible experience.

The Perfect Vacation House

  • 5 of 5

Spent a week on the Dingle Peninsula and wish we could have stayed for two. Plenty of room in the 3 bedroom house. Had all of the appropriate amenities and kitchen utensils you will need. The perfect location for those who want to get away from everything yet still be close enough to civilization. Located by the coast overlooking Slea Head Drive and the Blasket Islands. Majestic views, spectacular sunsets, local hiking.... can not say enough good things about this house. The peat fires on a chilly rainy evening were just incredible. Thank you again!!!

Great cottage, even greater location!

  • 5 of 5

This is a wonderfully restored old cottage in an absolutely perfect location in a magical part of Ireland. Located just above a small, gorgeous beach, just behind Dunmore Head and just below Mt. Eagle, with views of the Blasket Islands, the cottage could not be sited any better. The rooms are all lovely, the kitchen large and well-equipped. It is a great staging point for walking/hiking the Dingle Peninsula. I recommend it without hesitation or qualification.
