Amazing location with plenty of room for a large group

  • 5 of 5

Ten of us rented this rambling home above Inch Beach for a week of hiking around the Dingle Peninsula. First off, the beach is simply amazing. Perfect for long walks and water sports but also within walking distance to Sammy's for fine meals or the pub. The home is large, with plenty of space (and bathrooms) for a group to stay together. This kitchen is one of the most well appointed I've ever had the pleasure of using and the sunroom was perfect for meals together. We arrived in rainy, cold weather and Michael gave us some extra time for heat ( heat is on a timer) I would rent this property again in a heart beat.

Owner's Response: The Lodge is ideal for ‘activity’ groups and this delightful group of women from the USA seemed to make the most of it...
