Views have to seen to be believed!
Homely, cosy cottage with spectacular views all round and beautiful garden, you can sit in front of turf fire and watch the weather change over the mountains and sea. The closest beach is about a 5 minute drive and extremely picturesque. We brought our dog and he loved it. Also, in case anyone was wondering, the WiFi is excellent. Many thanks for an incredible short break.

An idyllic house on the Dingle Peninsula
Four of us travelled to The Dingle Peninsula to do some hill walking and enjoy the area. The cottage was set in an idyllic setting with views of the sea and sheep in the garden. It was well equipped for cooking, watching movies or relaxing. The Dingle Way was just steps from the front gate. We were able to go out the front door and enjoy the day. We also enjoyed a pint of Guinness at Murphy’s Pub at Brandon Pier. It was in walking distance to the house. Deirdre was very helpful and looked after the house and us very well. I would highly recommend the house and surrounding area.
