Dingle is our native home and it's an area that we are exceptionally proud of.

Fell in love to Dingle from this perfect location

  • 5 of 5

This apartment is stunning. It sits on the lower level of an ocean front apartment complex. My family of 6 stayed for 3 nights and our only regret is not staying longer. Grainne is INCREDIBLY sweet and hospitable (Her shop, The Coach House, is also worth the visit). The rental is warm and stocked with everything you would need for a comfortable visit. You are 5 minutes walk from the distillery, under 10 minute walk to several bars, shops and the grocery store. Comfortable beds and great bathrooms in each bedroom (ample hot water). Dingle itself is the most magical place. I don't want to tell anyone how much I loved it because I want to keep it all for myself. Book this rental and you won't be disappointed. Thank you so much, Grainne!!!!

Beautiful Dingle

  • 5 of 5

We have a marvelous time at this beautiful townhouse in the lovely town of Dingle. The property was beautifully decorated, fully stocked and so very comfy and cozy. Grainne even made us brownies for a welcome treat. She was incredibly responsive whenever we called and a wonderful hostess. Our family had a great time cooking together, relaxing after a day of sightseeing and walking down to the local pub to hear the music each night. Grainne gave us recommendations for restaurants, how to drive the Slea Head Loop, and how to navigate Kilarney National Park. We will definitely come back here and would highly recommend it to anyone who wants to spend time in a beautiful area in a lovely and cozy accommodation. Thanks Grainne and Marion - even our little hot water issue did not mar the wonderful stay.

Perfect in every way

  • 5 of 5

An absolutely elegant townhouse. Large ensuite bedrooms, complete kitchen, washer / dryer, all the comforts of home. Close enough to the Dingle nightlife (10-15 minute walk) without being in the chaos. A wonderful experience.

A little piece of heaven

  • 5 of 5

We could not have been happier with our 5 day stay in Dingle. The town is so quaint and has more wonderful places to eat than we have ever experienced in such a small place. The Waters Edge was perfect. Grainne was so welcoming. The basic food provisions were waiting for us including the yummy brownies. The home is impeccably decorated ant the little front patio was a great place to sit in the sun and read. One of the nicest places that we have ever stayed.
