The house is situated in the hamlet of Dunquin at the tip of the Dingle Peninsula, backing onto rolling hills, facing onto the Atlantic Ocean, staring at the Great Blasket Island. There are beautiful beaches, scenic drives, walks, and a host of archeological remains in this area. Dingle Town, 20 mins drive away, is a lively place year round. The house is situated at the end of a quiet laneway in an acre of grassy garden, plenty of room to run around. Spacious and comfortable, well stocked with every necessity, it is a home from home. Lovely views from the living and dining areas, and two of the bedrooms. The house has 2 fireplaces and is warm and welcoming even in winter.

About Sheelagh O'Neill
Irish born, living in the UK Our family and friends have spent many happy holidays in Dunquin, and love the fresh air and wide open spaces, together with the beautiful vistas. A great contrast to city living.
Sheelagh O'Neill purchased this House in 2003
Why Sheelagh O'Neill chose Dunquin
We fell in love with the area because it is an area of exceptional beauty, with wonderful views from the house and round every corner. We love the fresh air , the space and all the stars you see at night - and our house is sturdy and comfortable in any weather. We love it in winter as well as summer.
What makes this House unique
I love looking out at a panoramic view of the sea, with sea birds diving overhead. We have lots of space inside and around this house, which is good for the whole family. The kitchen/family area is well provided for and comfortable I love going for a bracing walk, then lighting a fire, and reading on the couch.

Great views and great house!
The house is in the perfect location with spectacular views. We will definitely be back again!
Thanks very much Connie, delighted you were happy.
A very high quality property in a stunning location!
The location is beautiful - the house looks out over the sea and the Blasket Islands. Absolutely stunning. There are many walks straight from the house and many more within a short drive. Dingle is an easy 20 min drive. The house is of the highest quality - very spacious, very well-maintained and extremely well-equipped. We mostly ate at home and were able to cook ourselves a range of meals - not always possible with houses with more limited kitchens. We would love to come back.
Light, cosy with stunning views
As a serial renter of holiday homes, I think this is a corker. Not only is it finished to a very high spec, it is charming, comfortable and cosy. It adapts to all weathers incredibly well, and the area is simply outstanding for landscape, walking, wonderful food and culture. Whatever the weather and whatever the time of year, this house delivers in spades. Fabulous.
Stunning location, charming house with everything you could need.
We have been renting this house over many years and are now on our third owner. It has recently had several major improvements, in particular the kitchen is vastly improved and affords a wonderful living space with stunning views over Great Blaskett Island.
I cannot think that there is a nicer house for rent in magical Dun Quinn and have no hesitation in recommending others to experience the stunning scenery and walking opportunities its location provides.
Thank you very much Kim for this review. It was lovely to have you back at the house, and I'm delighted you approve of the remodelling of the kitchen and living area. I'm very pleased with it. Hope we'll see you back again another time. Kind regards Sheelagh
Perfect holiday house in ideal location on Dingle
You are lucky if you find this house for your holiday on the Dingle peninsula. It has perfect views over the Blasket Islands. It is very comfortable and spacious; and well appointed. It is much used by the family and does not feel like a rental holiday house. It is clean, warm - plenty of hot water and a lovely kitchen and dining area. It is also perfectly positioned for all sorts of activities including great walks, horseriding, golf, beaches, local restaurants, and getting out to the Blasket's. We have been coming to the area for over 20 years, and now we have discovered Fennessy's Find we would never stay anywhere else.
Thank you very much for this lovely review and I'm delighted that you would like to come back. The area is so great for anyone who enjoys the outdoors, and I like to think that the house is a comfortable and welcoming place to come back to. Many thanks again.
Wonderful Vacation House
The description of this house does not do it the justice it deserves. It is comfortable and homey; well appointed and spacious. The view from the front yard and windows is simply spectacular. We loved exploring the surrounding area, but also enjoyed staying at the house and reading books, and having the children play in the large front yard. Do stock up on food items in Dingle -- then you won't have to leave the house for days and can enjoy the end of the Dingle peninsula. We stayed in many houses during our three weeks in Ireland, this house was by far our favorite. There are many things do to in the area. We loved our day on the Blasket Islands most of all.
Thank you for such favourable feedback.
We're delighted that you enjoyed our house and the
area so much. It is a special place.
Hope to have you back in the future!
All the very best, Sheelagh
