Brandon Bay Cottages
Rent a cottage and make the most of your time off. We have lovely cottages to rent on a remote headland in southwest of Ireland. Brandon is located on the northern side of the dingle peninsula in Co. Kerry. The holiday homes are located at Brandon point in a peaceful, unspoilt area with spectacular view of Brandon bay and surrounding mountains. The Stone Farmhouse and the Stone Cottage each has its own site with a style of their own rather than the monotonous same colour and layout type constructions that you find in some holiday villages The cottage has unobstructed mountain and sea views from every window. Brandon has been described as the Land of extremes, extreme isolation at Europe's periphery, extreme beauty of land, water and sky.
Brandon Point has been designated a discovery point on the Wild Atlantic Way. The Cloghane Brandon Area is a Gaeltacht area meaning it is one of the few regions in Ireland where Gaelic is still used daily. We are very proud of our culture and have a fantastic nights entertainment weekly to keep our traditions alive. The Tinteán Ceoil ( music by the fire side) is on in Cloghane Village 4 miles away.

The Great Outdoors: Brandon is a wonderful place to spend your holidays. Brandon - Cloghane is situated on the northern side of the dingle peninsula, tucked at the base of Mount Brandon and washed by the sparkling surf of Brandon Bay, the Cloghane Brandon region is surely one of the great beauty spots of the world. Here an exhilarating blend of mountain, sea and sky entice the visitor to linger, often longer than planned.
A fine selection of way marked trails through the Cloghane-Brandon hills have made the area a favourite destination for hill walkers. Walks range from short shoreline strolls to the high level Brandon Ridge Walk. The local walking guide book and No. 70 O.S Map are the ideal companions for all who wish to experience our special blend of hills, valleys and Atlantic coastline.
In Cloghane-Brandon, there is a choice between shore angling at Cappa and Fermoyle strands or casting for trout and salmon in the Owenmore River Valley below the Conor Pass.
In Cloghane-Brandon, the close proximity of mountains, sea and moorland makes for an interesting mix of wild flowers, ranging from seaside plants like sea pink to Alpine saxifrages. In between are the beathland, meadow and roadside plants. In summer scarlet fuchsia, purple foxglove, yellow and orange\red combine with other flowers such as the deep violet, great butter wort, bright yellow asphodel and heath spotted orchid of the Bogland to provide a memorable blaze of colour.
The tidal estuary of Cloghane Creek is a favourite haunt of curlews, oyster catchers, herons and many other waders. Cormorants, razor bills and guillemots find it a rich fishing ground. Fulmars nest at Brandon point, off which majestic gannets wheel and plummet in their spectacular quest for food. Another impressive aerial performer, the red-billed may also be observed at Brandon Point, soaring in the distraught, or feeding on the close-cropped hillside.

About Maura O'Neill
I have renting holiday homes since the early seventies. I have some clients who have been visiting the area since the '70s and still return regularly. I live in Cloghane Village a few miles from the Farmhouse. Many of my guests have moved to the area and now reside here permanently.

Why Maura O'Neill chose County Kerry
The Stone Farmhouse and the Stone cottage are both lovely properties in a magnificent location. Both have open plan living /dining room with an open fire. There are sea and mountain views from every window. It is located on a headland and the road ends just a few hundred yards from the farmhouse. We are off the beaten track yet have been included in the Wild Athlantic Way. Brandon Point is a discovery point.
What makes this Farmhouse unique
This property has everything you need to get away from it all. If you enjoy the great outdoors you will be spoiled for choice - the dingle way and Kerry way pass close to the property. You can go sea angling from Brandon Pier a mile away. There are numerous beaches locally suitable for walking , swimming or surfing.
Excellent location though isolated from main town
Cottage needs more decorating and cleaning
Not super clean but absolutely charming with stunning view
Could be a little bit more cleaner. There are some cobwebs in the corners and on the chairs. Also the bathroom wasn't clean.
But everything else was great!
Perfect settingComfortable home
The O’Neills are a treasure and exemplifies
The ideal of a hundred thousand welcomes
The Stone Farmhouse was wonderful. The O'Neill's are wonderful hosts and provide all the amenities one could need. We stayed a week and couldn't have been more pleased. Beautiful location on Brandon Point with stunning views of the mountains and bay. The seclusion was wonderful. We saw an occasional car or hiker going up the road to the point, but other than that our only neighbors were the sheep and dolphins. There is no wi-fi in the farmhouse but Mullally's Bar or Murphy's Pub are just down the road in Brandon. Both offer wifi. And the little shop in Cloghane carries groceries and staples.
Our favorite spot
This was our second time to Brandon Point, but our first time staying in the stone farmhouse. We absolutely loved our stay! The farmhouse is well represented on the website, and the view is one of the best in all of Ireland. We were fortunate enough to be able to enjoy our coffee outside on most days while listening to the sheep, and waving to passersby. This is a lovely spot to unplug, unwind, and enjoy the incredible beauty that surrounds. Just up the road is Mullalley's, a great little local pub. And beyond that is a small grocer for any essentials you may need. Communication with Maura was seamless, and she and her husband couldn't have been kinder. We can't wait to return!
Pure nature and a wonderful view!
