This is a charming traditional cottage with a peat burning fireplace in the sitting room, comfortable charming guest rooms and a large table in the kitchen. It is rustic and delightful. You can tell this is a beloved family home not just a sterile hotel room. The views of the sea from the cottage are wonderful and the location was perfect. Close enough to be convenient to Dingle town but far enough away to feel completely private and serene. Easy access to everything we wanted to do on the peninsula. We had our breakfast outside one morning with the sun shining on the sea and the cows in the pasture next door gazing at us. We were able to walk to the bay where our daughter searched for shells. We didn't do any real cooking while we were there as we ate at the local pub An bothar for dinner every night. We loved our stay and would love to visit again someday. Thank you Kathleen!

We had just the right amount of space for a family of two adults and three children. Great views from all around the cottage and a lovely loop walk starting just across the road takes in two nearby beaches. Philomena was very welcoming and happy to answer all of our queries and gave us useful local advice.
