|Minimum Stay||4 - 7 nights|
The house is situated in the peaceful hamlet of Dunquin at the tip of the Dingle Peninsula, backing onto rolling hills, facing onto the Atlantic Ocean. 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.

I have three children.
We have spent many happy holidays in Dunquin, and
love the fresh air and wide open spaces, together with the beautiful vistas.
Sheelagh O'Neill purchased this house in 2003
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 - a great contrast to city life, and our house is sturdy and comfortable in any weather. We love it in winter as well as summer.
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.
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.
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.
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.
One of the especially appealing aspects of this exceptionally comfortable house is its versatility. Whether in glorious sunshine with world-class views or in slightly less appealing drizzle, the house is light, bright and incredibly convivial. Great for quiet evenings by the fire or coping with a jolly crowd of happy holidaymakers. Thoroughly recommended.
This house is in a stunning location, looking out to the Blasket Islands. I could sit and soak up the views all day long. That is, if I wasn't going out along the coast looking at all the other constantly-changing beautiful views around the area! It is certainly the photographers dream.
The Blasket Centre is very close to the house, and one day we made the short boat trip across to the Great Blasket Island, which was one of the highlights of my stay.
This house is perfect, with all mod cons, and beautifully furnished to the highest level throughout. It has obviously been refurbished very recently, but has managed to retain the cottage atmosphere. The kitchen and living areas are so well-appointed, but totally relaxing. There is also a very nice lounge with a TV, and there are board games and DVDs available for use by the guests.
Dingle is only 20 mins away, with an excellent Aquarium, plenty of interesting shops, and a "must-do" boat trip to see Fungi the Dolphin!
I would recommend Fentons and Chart House restaurants for a nice dinner.
I stayed in this house with 3 friends, and we thoroughly enjoyed our time in Fennessy's Find, and are hoping soon to make a return trip to this magical place.
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in Fennessey's Find. It is a beautiful, large, perfectly maintained house with breathtaking views of the Blasket Islands on one side and the mountains on another. We must have taken hundreds of photographs as the vista is constantly changing. The interior decor is modern and high spec. The kitchen and bathrooms are top notch show-house quality and overall the house is cosy, luxuriously comfortable and yet practical.
The drive up to the house is a winding lane, lined with montbretia and other wild flowers and we instantly got a lovely sense of relaxation and of 'being away' .
We did lots, we cycled (wonderful way to see Slea Head) and went for lovely drives further afield. Our teenage daughter loved the Seal Sanctuary, the Aquarium in Dingle, the Fungi boat trip and the Blasket Cultural Centre (which is just down the road). There are beautiful beaches nearby and boat to The Blaskets goes from Dun Chaoin harbour which is also very close to the house. We had a lovely trip to that famous Island where Peig Sayers once lived. We had great 'meals out' and would recommend the Goat Street Cafe (our daughters favourite), Global Village, Out of the Blue (my favorites) and The Chart House (his favourite).
We enjoyed browsing in the shops in Dingle and there are a number of lovely potteries nearby, including Louis Mulcahy's showrooms. The nearest grocery is on the road Ballyferriter so we stocked up with provisions in Dingle on our way to Dun Chaoin.
We would thoroughly recommend this house to all, we have recommended it to friends and family and we hope to return.
It is a wonderful place to chill, unwind and recharge your batteries!
