Guestbook comments from the owner

Located in a spectacular part of Ireland at the very tip of Dingle Peninsula,these cottages overlook lush green fields facing the Atlantic ocean.To the west there is the beautiful Sybil Head.A very short walk takes one down to a beautiful sandy beach and connects with the Dingle Way.

Clogher Head ,Dunmore Head,Mount Eagle.The Blasket centre,Blasket Island and many other attractions are only a short drive away.The town of Dingle is a little further,but easily accessible for shopping,dinner or an evening out at the pub.

This is the real Ireland where cattle graze peacefully by the sea and the signs are in Gaelic.Its hard to believe that places like this exist anymore....looks like it is part of a movie set.It quickly became home base for us either to explore Kerry,or recently,more ofton when tired of being on the road,just to stay home and hike the trails without ever having to drive anywhere.

The cottage is both cozy and roomy with a modern kitchen,fireplace and three bedrooms.It is always very clean and the owners are exceptionally accommodating.In short it is a jewel of a place and a place that will create Irish memories for a lifetime.I feel it is my home when I am in Ireland and look forward to coming back

You will always want to come back to Dingle

  • 5 of 5

These butter yellow cottages facing the Wild Atlantic Way are absolutely wonderful as is the family that will be your hosts. This is our second 2 week stay and we loved it. The cottage has a wonderful fireplace stove and Philomina will see to it you always have wood. The kitchen is well appointed and the beds are great. You can see cows and calves and sheep with their lambs grazing on the hillside in the back and an unobstructed view of the sea in front. Walk to a dramatic strand of beach or Louis' gorgeous pottery studio for delicious coffee and cakes. Visit the Great Blasket Center and Dingle Town Aquarium. The very best is the incredible O'Connor family themselves. They will make you welcome and you will never forget them. We have taken 8 trips to Ireland and the OConnors, Dingle and the Wild Atlantic Way are our most cherished memories.

Lovely cottages within walking distance to the ocean

  • 5 of 5

I enjoyed staying here. Philomena and her family were very warm and friendly. It was a bit harsh weather as is January, but the wood stove and heaters provided a cozy atmosphere.

Another great stint on the Dingle Peninsula

  • 5 of 5

Thoroughly enjoyed my stay at Suantra. Philomena and Sharon communicated excellently and went out of their way to assist when some issues driving to the cottage. It's a beautiful location and very cosy cottage, fully equipped with everything you it's got fast WiFi so I stay connected to the office (yuck, right?) for a few of the days. Can't wait to go back and stay even longer!

The Very BEST Place to Stay in Dingle

  • 5 of 5

I could not have more wonderful things to say about my stay in the Suantra Cottages. Philomena goes above and beyond as a host. She became a great source of wisdom on the area, showing us around Dingle and all the incredible history it holds. Our time here was nothing short of sacred. This place has a healing energy that seeps into your bones, leaving you feeling refreshed, renewed, and fully connected to nature. The cottages are well appointed, and super cozy. I spent most evenings relaxing by the fire, or outside stargazing. Philomena was so much more than a host- in our month here we met her family, shared many cups of tea, and felt so incredibly welcomed into this space. Book this rental now! You won't regret it.

Beautiful place, very cosy and comfortable cottage

  • 5 of 5

We spent a week in one of the cottages and we were absolutely delighted with it! The surrounding area is really heart-stoppingly beautiful... Dingle is our favourite place in Ireland and this particular spot is just incredibly wonderful. The cottage is also clean, comfortable and very cosy. The fireplace is great on a rainy day, the kitchen well-equipped and the washing machine and dryer very handy, too. Philomena and her daughter Sharon were very friendly, warm and welcoming and we definitely felt very much at home in this lovely cottage. Our boys (aged 7 and 10) also really loved the place. Our favourite trip was to Great Blasket Island - there is a ferry from Dunquin, just a 5-minute drive away - the boat trip was great fun, we saw lots of seals on the beach, had a nice walk and went on a guided tour of the village on Great Blasket. But we also enjoyed the walks from Suantra cottage very much and Clogher beach is very, very beautiful too. We cannot wait to come back to this lovely place - we are from Germany, so it's not quite 'around the corner', but we will try and be back as soon as possible...

Suantra Cottage, stay for family of 5

  • 5 of 5

Cottage was cosy, clean and well fitted out. 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.
