Why Grainne Kavanagh chose County Kerry

Dingle is our native home and it's an area that we are exceptionally proud of. We have shared our knowledge of this area with guests in our guesthouse Emlagh House for 14 years & it's a wonderful experience to share and enhance our visitors stay with our local knowledge. This location is unique in so many ways, the views of the bay, the 5 minute walk to the marina area of Dingle yet on the Slea Head side of town makes it perfect for sightseeing.

A beautiful spot!

  • 5 of 5

We so enjoyed our stay at Water's Edge, so much so, leaving was very hard! Grainne and Marion are amazing hosts, paying close attention to every detail. From fantastic recommendations about the best local merchants, to delicious deliveries of home made scones, we wanted for nothing. We hope to come back soon, and highly recommend Water's Edge.

Beautiful home, stunning views, above Dingle Town

  • 5 of 5

After spending a week in Ard Na Mara House in June 2015, we can not recommend it more highly. Everything you could possibly ask for in this lovely home - beautifully appointed, luxury kitchen and furniture, spectacular views of Dingle Harbor, a 7 minute walk to Dingle Town's pubs, restaurants, shops and market means there is no need to drive and find parking in town. Our hosts Grainne and Marion could not have been more helpful and accommodating - right down to the home-made scones and jam awaiting us on our arrival. Dingle Town is the perfect base for exploring SW Ireland and hiking over the spectacular Dingle Way and other walking trails. Absolutely perfect home in one of the most beautiful places on earth.

Best self catering accomodation ever.

  • 5 of 5

If you are looking for a luxurious and spotless self catering holiday accomodation in what must be one of the most beautiful spots this side of the Atlantic, then look no further. We had a fantastic time here, we have a disabled son and have used self catering accomodation all over Europe, none come close to this standard. It could at first seem more expensive than other "5 Star" accomodation, but you get what you pay for and this is the real deal. Our Hosts Gráinne and Marion could not do enough for us, even rearranging a room to suit our sons mobility needs. Be warned though, you won't want to leave. The view from the house are fabulous and Dingle is a haven of culture, pubs and food, all served with a genuine smile and quality that is wanting in a lot of holiday destinations. A short drive from Dingle and you can be on a beautiful beach or viewing the high cliffs rising out the Atlantic. We look forward to returning.

Perfect in every way!

  • 5 of 5

My son and his girlfriend and I stayed at this property for a week, in early September, and had a wonderful time! The owners, Marion and Grainne (who are mother and daughter), have done a lovely job with the interior design. It is beautiful, but also comfortable and functional. (The only quirk is the hot water system, which requires some advanced planning, to make sure it's there in sufficient quantity when you need it! A slight inconvenience, but not a serious problem.) Grainne made herself very available to answer all of our questions and to help with anything we needed, including arranging a guide for us, for a day of hiking. She also gave us excellent tips about restaurants and where to catch the best live music. I truly hope to come back to Dingle and stay here again, in another year or two.

Waters Edge House Is wonderful In so many ways!

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I, and our son and his girlfriend, stayed at Waters Edge House in early August. We truly loved this place. With a beautiful view of Dingle Bay from the living room and main bedroom, it is a quiet and relaxing place. It is very clean, well furnished and stylishly decorated. The photos really do not do justice to the home.

It is located within easy walking distance to "downtown" Dingle. At the time we were there, Dingle was very busy. We were grateful that the house was just far enough outside the business district to provide a peaceful oasis. We spent our days shopping, exploring County Kerry's many natural and historical sites, and enjoying golf, kayaking and other activities. At night, we enjoyed Dingle's superb restaurants and pubs, with a nightly variety of music.

The hospitality of our hosts, Marion and Grainne, was particularly outstanding. The freshly baked scones and brownies were wonderful. Also, their thoughtful and friendly help with suggestions, recommendations and directions was very impressive.

We definitely plan to return.
