Perfect quiet vacation retreat

  • 5 of 5

Just spent a week at the cottage with our extended family (6 adults and 1 child). The house is perfectly set up and has all the amenities needed. The beach is so close and you could just sit and watch the tide all day. Our 1 year old loved the perfect sand beach.

The house has amazing views of the water from every room.

Only a 10 minute drive from Ballybunion to get food, drink, etc.

Can't say enough about the assistance of Dermot, thank you!

Peaceful, rural and perfect.

  • 5 of 5

This is my new "home away from home" while I'm in Ireland. The location is ideal for day trips throughout counties Kerry and Limerick, and once you get the lay of the land, the roads and cuts to the towns are easy to navigate.

Dermot a great host. In addition to meeting me just outside of Ballybunion so that I could follow him to the house, he also took the time to give me a thorough tour and explain the amenities of the home and how to get to the local grocery.

The house was spotless, bright and felt very homely. Dermot welcomes you with homey touches including a homemade rhubarb tart and the makings for tea. The kitchen is perfect for those who love to cook, and is fully stocked with high-quality dishes, flatware and pots and pans - a rarity in the rental market!

The fresh flowers were a lovely touch. The view of the beach really does take your breath away and there is no substitute for the peace and quiet of this rural home.

I will definitely return and hope to be back soon.

A beauitful house in a great location and great value

  • 5 of 5

6 adults stayed for a week at the end of March 2016.

It was such a great holiday and the house was everything and more.

Dermot was very accommodating and helpful, he meet us at Asdee and we followed him to the house as its not that easy to find the first time around.

The house was spotless, bright and felt very homely. There was a apple pie in the fridge on arrival aswel as milk and tea bags- just what we needed after traveling. The kitchen is a dream :) and the fresh flowers were a lovely touch. The view of the beach really does take your breath away. The beds are very comfortable, the en suits are very modern and up to date.

We had good weather, but sadly no bbq's this time around.

I would HIGHLY recommend this house to anyone- it has that perfect balance between being rural and being able to reach local shops, beaches and pubs fairly easy in a car.

We visited Cork, Tralee, killarney and listowel but always felt happier at the house playing cards and looking out at the views.

Ballybunion beach is stunning, McCarthy's Sundaes ice cream shop is a must too.

We will be back at some point :) Thanks Dermot

Traumhafter Ausblick

  • 5 of 5

Wir waren eine Woche im "Dolphin" Cottage und es war eine sehr schöne Woche. Das Haus ist sehr sauber und gepflegt. Am tollsten war der Ausblick von der großen Küche auf Wiese, Strand und Wasser. Am Strand kann man entlang spazieren, träumen und Ruhe genießen. Ein Domizil zu empfehlen für Menschen die Entspannung suchen. Mietet man sich ein Auto, so kann man schöne Ausflüge in der Umgebung machen. Ich kann das Haus gerne weiterempfehlen. Thanks , it was wonderfull! Claudia

simply wonderful!

  • 5 of 5

The Dolphin Cottage was one of the best places we have ever stayed.

We will never Forget the stunning look when we first came down to the Cottage and saw the House and in the back the Sea.

The House itself is clean, stylish and comfortable.

Dermot was as friendly and helpful as you can only wish!

It wasn't just a Holiday accomodation it was a home for us in that time and will be missed from time to time when we are at home again.

There is every Comfort you will Need.

You'll find some games and books for nice and funny evenings. And as well for the Little ones you can find balls, or Beach toys.

And the Kitchen is a dream with it's big Gas Stove with Grill plate for meat and a Wok.

There isn't a bad Thing to say!

We loved it!

Thanks again Dermot for everything!

From Shannon airport follow the signs for Limerick on the N18. Go through the Tunnell ( Toll €1.90) and take the 1st exit for N69 towards Listowel. At Tarbert continue straight ahead on the R551 to Asdee.

Golf: Golfers paradise. Play all the famous links of the south west Lahinch, Doonbeg, Tralee, Waterville and the Old Head of Kinsale are within reach and of course Ballybunion is right on your doorstep. The parkland courses of Killarney and Adare Manor are also close by.

The beach in front of the house is a great place to practice your swing
