Spectacular Views, Miles of Beaches, and Boat Trips, 4 Star Luxury Home

Family-friendly holiday home in Dingle
Close to the Wild Atlantic Way route, Dunroman house was purpose built as a luxury four star Irish Tourist Board approved guest-house. It has operated as a guest-house until 2011 and due to change of circumstances is now available for vacation rental. It is located next door to the owner’s private accommodation. There are four spacious bedrooms, all with en-suite private bathrooms. The three largest rooms each have a double queen size bed and a single bed, and the fourth room has one double queen size bed. Extra fold up beds or childrens cots can be arranged as necessary. All the bedrooms are tastefully decorated with clean white paintwork and beautiful knotted French pine wooden floors. All the rooms in the house comply with the Irish Tourist Board four star guesthouse standards.
Linen and towels are supplied, as are all utilities, and some basic foodstuff such as tea and coffee etc.
The house is located in a quite country setting, beside the N86, 3 miles from the town of Dingle, 27 miles from Tralee and 40 miles from Killarney. There are some spectacular mountain scenes from the bedroom windows and the sea and many beautiful beaches are only minutes away.

Dingle peninsula stretches out into the Atlantic Ocean and is surrounded by the warm waters of the Gulf stream. This results in a very temperate mild climate where exotic plants are common and many rare fish are found around this part of the coast.
The peninsula has some of the most scenic walking tracks in the country, the “Dingle Way” probably being the best known among walkers. The Dingle peninsula has numerous prehistoric archaeological sites of great historical interest and a guided archaeological tour can be easily arranged. Experience unique gems such as the 9th century Gallurus Oratory, and the early christian beehive huts. In more modern times, Dingle peninsula is famous for being the location of “Ryan’s Daughter” the David Lean- Bob Mitchum- Sarah Miles film made in 1969 and “Far and Away” the 1992 film starring Tom Cruise and Nicole Kidman.
The Dingle peninsula has been voted “the most beautiful place on Earth” by the National Geographic. It has also been voted one of the top 100 destinations in the world and has been recently recommended by CNN as a very favourable winter destination.
The peninsula offers some of Ireland’s most beautiful scenery, rugged and raw, wild and untamed. Parts of the peninsula are still Gaelic speaking, and all of the peninsula is extremely welcoming to visitors.

Why not avail of a complimentary one hour boat tour in Dingle Harbour on one of our passenger tour boats, where our guide will talk to you about some of the history of the area, and point out some of the wildlife you may encounter. You will hopefully get to see Fungie, our resident bottlenose dolphin, who has made the harbour his home since 1983.
We can also organise a guided Marine Eco tour of Dingle Bay and the Blasket Islands or a deep sea angling trip of 2, 4 or 8 hours, on other boats, for which you have to pay for. (April - Oct ). Get close to nature in comfort, see dolphins, seals, puffins, gannets, and if you are lucky, a whale, in their natural wild environment. Enjoy some of the most breathtaking scenery on the Irish coast. All trips are weather permitting.

Deep sea angling trips can be arranged and all gear is provided on the boats. Some of our guests like to catch their own fish and then cook it back in Dunroman for dinner - you can’t get fresher than that! For the committed angler, there are numerous shore angling spots that are good for bass, pollock, mackerel, wrasse etc. If your preference is lobster, crab or crayfish, the owners can arrange to buy it fresh from the boats for you to cook for that special meal.

Dingle town is 3 miles / 5 Kilometres from Dunroman. It is a small town with a native population of 1,600 which swells to 5,000-6,000 during the summer. Dingle is renowned for punching above its weight in many respects, and is known all over the world as one of the primary holiday destinations in Ireland. At one time the town boasted 52 pubs, but this has reduced somewhat over the recent years. There are still some old world traditional pubs that have remained unchanged for hundreds of years- hardware on one side of the saloon, bar counter on the other side. Many of Dingle’s pubs have free entertainment most nights, usually traditional music and song. Dingle is probably one of the top gourmet destinations in Ireland, and was awarded 'foodie town of Ireland' in 2014, with its many award winning restaurants. Many of the bigger bars also do really good value meals, lunches and dinners. The Dingle Food and Wine Festival held over the first weekend of October is always a very well attended and popular event. Dingle, or “ Daingean Uí Chúis” in Gaelic, was established 700 years ago as a Norman walled town. Some of the old town wall is still visible. It was once a major commercial port doing trade with Spain and Portugal back in the 18th. and 19th centuries, and since then an important fishing port, but over recent decades, Dingle has become the primary tourist destination of South West Ireland, since the early 70's when the MGM movie 'Ryans Daughter' was shot here.



Dingle aquarium is probably the best of its kind in Ireland. The vast array of local sealife is featured, as well as an amozonian section. There is a shark tank, an underwater glass viewing tunnel, and the most recent addition is a penguin enclosure. There is also a well stocked souvenir shop and a coffee shop.

There are numerous activities for young and old available, both indoor and outdoor. For those who just want to relax and wind down, there are beautiful walks through the surrounding country lanes, where the only traffic you are likely to meet is a farmer going about his work, who most likely will stop and talk to you for a while.
You can have all your holiday activities pre-arranged for you by the owners, or you can 'play it by ear' as they say here. The choice is yours, but whatever your plans, Tom and Noeline will do their best to ensure that you go back home relaxed and happy with your stay.

5/5 Excellent

Great stay and excellent location
Great property just outside Dingle- the location was perfect with everything within driving distance. All bedrooms en-suite and plenty of living space for a large group. Tom and Noeline were super hosts and were extremely helpful. Also the essentials in the fridge were a lovely touch and went down a treat.

5/5 Excellent

Excellent property & lovely hosts
The location & quality of this house is fantastic, 4 fine sized rooms each en-suite, large living & dining room, kitchen, sun room & outdoor space to relax, dry wetsuits etc. We really enjoyed our stay & would highly recommend this property. I had some questions in advance which Tom was happy to answer, so efficiently & quickly. Noeline is a wonderful host, any query is addressed immediately, there was a welcome gift, fruit, breakfast items including home made brown bread - all which positively added to our stay. The trip to see Fungi was one of the highlights of our trip, truly delightful. Dingle is a brilliant location which so much to see & do, a memorable holiday & we look forward to going back.

9 Person Stay in Dingle.
About 3 miles from Dingle, this home was an excellent base for our 9 person, 3 night trip. The house was spacious, comfortable and offered most amenities we needed. You have to be able to drive/take taxis from/to here as the road to Dingle is unwalkable. I would highly recommend this home, and would choose to stay there again.

Our # 1 Place in Ireland
My family loved Dingle we all voted on our favorite town. All 9 said Dingle, even the 2 teenagers enjoyed it. The people (everyone we met ) were so helpful and nice. We traveled all over Ireland and the Dingle Wool store had the best prices for the Irish wool's. The house was perfect for our large group. Each couple had their own rooms with bathrooms. The house has plenty of rooms to enjoy different areas for each group. Watching TV, playing cards or just talking about plans for the next day. We enjoyed the fact that the house is a few miles out of town. The breakfast items left for us by the owners was amazing, the 16 year old fell in love with the bacon and fresh brown bread. Our cab driver's taking us home after pub visits was super fun and they gave us advise on what to visit along our way to Northern Ireland. All agree we want to go back to Dingle and stay here again. Our only advice is be ready for great food, friendly people and a relaxing time.
