Overview

Martramane House Rental Photos and Description

House, 5 Bedrooms, 1.5+ Baths, (Sleeps 11)

Have an unforgettable time at the Martramane House in picturesque Castlegregory on the Dingle Peninsula.

This beautiful self-catering house is in County Kerry on the southwest coast of Ireland. Castlegregory, known as 'Castle' by the locals, has become quite the artists colony, because of its serenity, history, and brilliant views. From every window in the house, you will enjoy breathtaking beauty, including Brandon bay, the Atlantic ocean, the 3100 foot high Brandon Mountain, and Loch Gil. Walk into town, for restaurants, pubs with traditional music, art, historic St. Mary's Church, and a fully stocked grocery store.

The area is well known for its hiking, windsurfing, water sports, horseback riding, and antiquities dating back to the first millennium. It's close to several of the world's greatest golf courses, 45 minutes to Ballybounion. Walk the miles of sandy beaches and more.

The Dingle Peninsula has the reputation for having an exhilarating blend of mountain scenery, big skies, historic sites, rugged coastlines contrasted by sandy beaches, and the friendliest most generous people in Ireland.

Very old fashioned and nothing worked

  • 1 of 5

Arrived to find a list of maintenance issues which included washing machine, dishwasher and VCR not working amongst other things, although bedding had been cleaned the duvet cover was stained badly. Garden hadn't been maintained the grass hadn't been cut or hedges, and absolutely no outside furniture whatsoever which is ridiculous as its a holiday let. Owner refunded to us the cleaning costs of 100 euro but didn't really compensate for the fact the place had been neglected. I have holiday lets myself in the lakes so I was reluctant to write a bad review however I think potential guests should be aware. I know the owners live abroad but that should be no excuse if charging and advertising as a holiday let in such poor condition, it needs money spending on it to give it more of a holiday feel and appliances should be working, it's only saving grace was its location to the village but that's about the only positive I could find

A perfect house to discover the Dingle peninsula

  • 4 of 5

Une semaine passée à deux familles avec six enfants à Matramane House pour de formidables vacances... même les jours de pluie ! Grande, confortable, chaleureuse et bien équipée. Et un point de départ idéal pour découvrir les merveilles de la péninsule de Dingle. Vraiment, merci pour cette agréable maison.

Une petite suggestion seulement : équiper la maison de tables et chaises de jardin et d'un barbecue, lorsque le soleil est là, c'est un plaisir de profiter pleinement du jardin !

Fantastic location

  • 4 of 5

Myself, my husband, 3 small kids and niece had a wonderful 2 week holiday in Matramane house. The location was perfect for us....within easy walking distance of Castlegregory village and yet it very much felt as though we were out in the countryside. A great base for beaches and day trips around the Maharees and Dingle peninsula....and an easy 20 minute drive to Tralee.

On the downside I think for the price I would have expected a higher spec'd house. The downstairs bedrooms (most likely an extension) and toilet were a bit colder than the rest of the house... We used a heater in these bedrooms....Also there was only one shower in the house....I was expecting more. The vcr player did not work and there was no dvd player and only basic tv. Luckily we brought our own dvd player. The upstairs banisters were far too wide for small kids so we got visitors to bring a stair gate which helped a lot. Also, the sheds at the back of the house were blocking beautiful sea view sunsets which was a real shame....a patio with simple picnic table and chairs replacing these sheds would be amazing..Finally the grass surrounding the house was overgrown so when we arrived all of our feet and shoes (including the kids) got wet on arrival!

Despite these few negatives, I would recommend this house. It has a real homely charm with a good sized living room and plenty of beds and all mod cons (bar channel tv/dvd). The owners kindly provided two travel cots and a high chair on request. In hindsight we should have requested a stair gate also. The agent was easy to contact and very helpful and promptly arranged for the heating to be fixed when it was not working for us...she also provided us with a heater for the babies room.

A bit of tlc would make this house a dream holiday home but overall as it stands I would give it 4 out of 5 stars.

Warm, clean and quiet

  • 4 of 5

My kids and I spent four nights at the the Martramane House and found it to be charming. It was warm, clean and quiet and best of all situated in Castlegregory, a lovely little town on the northern coast of the Dingle Peninsula. Thank you for a great stay!

Great Family Holiday Option

  • 4 of 5

Eight of us shared Martramane House for 10 days in October. Off-season so not many pubs or restaurants open, but we enjoyed the ones that were and found some new ones. Recommend Pisces. The owners had left a list of restaurants, and maps so it was easy to get around. Had fun cooking some meals at the house;pretty much everything you need in the kitchen to prepare a meal. Enjoyed shopping at the local grocery store and beyond during our travels. The local people are wonderful; we had so many lovely experiences and the beach is within 10 mins walk. Wonderful location and the beds were so comfortable. We were able to do day trips to Tralee, Dingle (the whole peninsula), Killarney; plenty of hiking available. Just a magical place.
