Grove Cottage Rental Photos and Description

Three bedrooms, sleeps 7

Stunningly situated two-storey holiday house 10 min outside of Dingle town by car going in the direction of mt. Brandon and Ballydavid. Three bedrooms, one with a double bed, one with a bunk bed (two singles) and one with a double bed and single bunk (sleeps 7 total). The beautifully renovated farm house has a large kitchen and living room with a traditional fireplace including the original antique iron crane (see photo). There is a cozy bathroom downstairs with bath/shower and a toilet upstairs as well. The breathtaking view from the front of the house looks directly out on Smerwick Harbour to the south and to the West lie the Three Sisters and the Atlantic horizon. To the east is Ireland's second highest mountain, Mt. Brandon, climbed by Celtic/Christian pilgrims since the early Middle Ages. Also visible in the distance are the hills of Great Blasket Island. Total privacy, a cozy house facing the North Atlantic & proximity to Dingle's lively pub scene are what this house offers.

About Kathleen Dineen Young

I am originally from County Cork. I grew up in an irish speaking family and we spent our childhood holidays in West Kerry. I fell in love with the area and the cottage is now my family holiday home with my three sons. The area is an inspiration for me as a singer with the area`s rich irish traditional music culture.

Kathleen Dineen Young purchased this cottage in 1989

Why Kathleen Dineen Young chose County Kerry

The cottage is a unique location with total privacy and stunning uninterrupted views of Smerwich Harbour and the Atlantic ocean. Winter or summer, it is a beautiful warm,quiet and peaceful place to be.

What makes this cottage unique

It is a traditional house maintaining its original character with wooden beams and stone floors. There is a feeling of going back 100 years in time. For me it is the only place in the world where time stands still and one can forget all the stress of work and modern living.

Authentic Gaeltacht cottage, spacious, appointed

Remote, but not too hard to find, this cottage is set spectacularly on the sea. It is a superb location vis a vis Blasket Islands, the Dun Quinn tour in one direction and drive up to the Connor Pass or the back road to Dingle town in the other. We could walk to a pub and two good restaurants. The home is a real home. Peat for the fire. Great to have bedrooms upstairs. View of the sea at the kitchen sink is mesmerizing. Housekeeper is very attentive. (We forgot a coat with a passport in it!) Parking escarpment is tight for big cars, but welcome to Ireland.

Dingle, Dingle-Peninsula, Blasket Islands, Mt. Brandon, Gallurus Oratory... the Dingle area is world famous for its Gaelic heritage and beautiful landscapes unlike any other part of Ireland. Perfect for hiking, fishing, snorkelling, bike-riding, sailing, wind-surfing, music, relaxing with a pint of Guinness, etc. This dramatic Atlantic coastal region lies so far west in Ireland's geography that local signs say, 'Next Parish: America'.
