Very close to Dingle and next to a beautiful, secluded sandy beach, this spacious and beautifully furnished, new 2500 square foot luxury six bedroom house, offers you dramatic views of Dingle Bay, the Atlantic Ocean and Mountains. This gorgeous house sits on a large lawned garden with a great deck where you can enjoy the sea and mountain views as you barbeque or just relax with a coffee or glass of wine.

Five of the 6 beautiful bedrooms contain queen beds (two of which are ensuite), and the sixth bedroom contains two single beds (twin beds). There are two additional main bathrooms in the house, one of which has a large jetted/jacuzzi tub (with individual head rests) to relax in. All bedrooms are either ensuite or close by a main bathroom.

Enjoy a short stroll to the beautiful quiet beach, where you can swim, surf, go shelling and fishing or have a picnic while gazing at the dramatic scenery. This house is a dream for families and couples alike and a great location for exploring Dingle!

The spacious country kitchen is fully equipped with everything you need to enjoy your cooking and dining experience. In the dining area, the farmhouse kitchen table comfortably seats 8-10 and the patio doors conveniently open out onto the deck where you can enjoy the sea and mountain views as you barbeque. If you like to dine outside, surrounded by the sights and sounds of nature, there are further chairs and table on the deck.

Relax in the lounge listening to music or reading a book from the book/CD collection, watch TV or browse the net through the wi-fi. The additional separate TV room adds to your enjoyment with its widescreen HD Television, Satellite channels and great selection of DVD movies to choose from. If you enjoy games, there is also a Wii console with games for both adults and kids to enjoy!

Explore the vibrant and colourful town of Dingle with its top-quality, award winning, restaurants, cafes and traditional bars. You can amble around town enjoying the unique shops, galleries and bookshops or enjoy the atmosphere around the marina. Experience great traditional irish music being played live in many of its bars by some of Irelands top musicians!

There is so much to see and do here in Dingle. The wonderful Dingle Wildlife and Seal Sanctuary is just down the road, complete with a lovely lakeside tea room/cafe (with great food) and children’s play area. Oceanworld aqaurium is also great for nature lovers too. Experience the numerous outdoor activities such as walking, diving, surfing, fishing, climbing, boating, swimming, horse-riding, golfing, hiking, bowling, boat-tours to the blasket islands, eco-tours, exploring historical archeological sites, to mention but a few.

Enjoy your vacation in this super comfortable home, in an area that was cited as 'the most beautiful place on earth' by the National Geographic and has been featured in many films like 'Ryans Daughter' (Robert Mitchum) and 'Far and Away' (Cruise/Kidman), for its dramatic and beautiful scenery. It was voted among the top 100 destinations in the world; CNN recently recommended it as a very favourable winter destination; it is listed as one of the top 10 places to be on New Year's Eve - all of these accolades refer to the stunningly beautiful Dingle Peninsula.

Enjoy boat trips out to the Blasket Islands, eco tours or a trip to see ‘Fungi’ the famous local wild dolphin who has adopted Dingle Bay as his home for many years. Trips can be booked to swim with Fungi too!

Whether you want an action packed vacation or one of peace and tranquillity, surrounded by breathtaking scenery, then this house near Dingle is perfect for you to enjoy it all!

About Niamh

Hi! I'm Niamh and I'm Irish. Myself and my husband Frank built our dream home here in our favorite part of Ireland, after visiting the area for many years. We feel so lucky to own this wonderful home by the sea in such a truly magical place! We love being in Dingle!

Niamh purchased this house in 2007

Why Niamh chose Ireland

It is a luxury house next to a stunningly beautiful quiet beach. It has amazing 360 degree views and a big private garden. The wonderful 'Dingle Wildlife and Seal Sanctuary' (with cafe/lakeside seating) is just down the road and the house is very close to Dingle. Dingle is an amazing place! This area has it ALL: Ocean, stunning beaches, mountains, lakes, rivers, islands and a vibrant town. Wonderful restaurants, bars and great music too. So much to see and do here, it caters to all tastes and ages.

What makes this house unique

The name of our house is 'Didean' (in Irish) which means Haven and it truly is that! Its only a 2 minute stroll to the most beautiful secluded beach, 1.5 miles to the Wonderful 'Dingle Wildlife and Seal Sanctuary' and only 7 minutes drive to the magical town of Dingle, with all it's shops, restaurants, bars and special attractions!

Guestbook comments from the owner

What a wonderful vacation home! Had everything anyone could want! So comfortable and warm and a great place to celebrate a vacation. Our kids and grandchildren loved having 'monster', the neighbourhood dog in all our family photos! Dingle was a great town and had wonderful restaurants and shops. Most important, the people were wonderful and so friendly. Thank you Niamh and Frank!

We had a great time in this vacation home in Dingle.The house was inviting,comfortable,large enough to accommodate our family of 8. The kitchen was clean,well equipped.Almost every bedroom had their own bathroom.

The wi-fi worked perfectly,which is important when travelling with teenagers.

The location of the house was great:close to a nice beach,very quite ,within short driving distance to the shops in Dingle.

The house was a good base for trips on the dingle peninsula,to Killarney and even to the Skelligs.

Spectacular Vacation Home

  • 5 of 5

This beautiful vacation home on the Dingle peninsula was all that we hoped for and more. The home itself was warm, inviting, large enough for our extended family of 13, beautifully decorated and extremely comfortable. Its location was perfect: a close walk to an awesome beach, a short drive to the delightful town of Dingle, and with a spectacular pastoral setting. The grandkids were delighted with all the play room and walks to the ocean, and the adults could sit on the deck or inside with a view to watch the kids while drinking coffee or reading a good book. Niamh was a wonderful person to work with regarding rental. This is definitely a vacation home we would highly recommend……one of our favorites that provided us with lots of memories of a vacation of a lifetime.

Great Place to Stay when in Dingle!

  • 5 of 5

Our family stayed at this home in Dingle - and had a great time. Not only is Dingle a great place to visit, this is a wonderful house to stay in during the visit! A 10 minute drive to town, it is a quiet location with very pretty views of the area and sea. Very nice beach is very close - the water is cold, but its a great place to relax and enjoy the day. House itself is very clean, great beds, hot showers... great sunroom in the in kitchen.

I have traveled the world and I highly recommend!

Wonderful country retreat....

  • 5 of 5

Spent a lovely week here. Our hosts were very hospitable and friendly, seeing to all of our needs. A short walk to the beach and a beautiful 2 mile loop through the surrounding country was a daily ritual. Our kids loved all of the animals in the surrounding farms and even had a couple local dogs join us for our walks. The drive to Dingle is short and scenic. Overall, a fantastic spot for a family retreat.

Perfect Vacation!

  • 5 of 5

Our family travelled to Ireland for 10 days in the middle of May and stayed in this beautiful home on the Dingle Peninsula. The location could not be more scenic, as we would fall asleep to the sound of ocean waves at night and wake up to white sheep quietly grazing in the backyard. We took full advantage of the beautifully modern & well stocked kitchen and cooked most meals during our trip, we loved dining together at the sunny table and talking about the adventures of the day. After dinner, we gathered in the cozy living room to play games late into the night (since the sun doesn't set until 10:30pm!) There are 7 of us (2 couples), so the 6 bedrooms and 5 bathrooms gave us all some privacy at the end of the day. The washer/dryer came in handy as well as we were active throughout the week hiking/climbing the beautiful hills of the peninsula. The home is a 5 minute walk from a beautiful hidden beach, and we took daily advantage to walk the 1.8 mile road that loops around the house through sheep farms and beautiful long grasses. Downtown Dingle is about a 5 minutes drive, so it made for an easy trip in for groceries or a night on the town. Niamh was such a gracious host, met us at check in to answer any questions and provided us with the most recent event calendar and plenty of restaurant recommendations. She made her home feel like ours and it made for one of our favorite vacations together. We can't wait to return!
