'Allow yourself to be enchanted by Corca Dhuibhne (West Kerry),a land of stunning impressive mountains, spectacular coastline and sandy beaches.
Spend time in a place rich in tradition, literature and culture, where our native Irish language prospers but most of all spend time in a beautiful house where you can marvel at the splendour of its surroundings with every modern convenience the house offers privacy and comfort.
There is few places in the world that will thoroughly take your breath away as the view from inside or outside or on the patio of the cottage overlooking Clogher Beach /Sybhil Head and the 3 high points called the 3 sisters /mountains and the vast Atlantic Ocean,,, the most photographed point of the most scenic of drives .the home is only 20minute drive from idilic Dingle town
This is no ordinary cottage, quite apart from breath-taking views from every windows,the house is utterly delightful and comfortable with oil fired central heating,wooden floors and subtle decor which sets the tone in this tranquil hideaway. Situated right at the heart of what
National Geographic calls it 'the Most Beautiful Place on Earth .The spectacular views of the rugged cliffs which make up the coastline can be seen from every window of the house.
It overlooks Clochar Beach, Sybil head,The Three Sisters, Mount Brandon,Smerwick Harbour..It inspired classic films such as David Leans 'Ryan's Daughter' Tom Cruise/Nicole Kidman epic 'Far and Away'.

You can walk through the fields attached to the house and feel the freedom of living in the country also you can walk to the cliffs through the fields and sit on the stone wall and watch the waves and the ocean and the surrounding hills and cliffs and feel the peace and tranquility seep through your body!!
The house is probably the best situated on the dingle peninsula with views that awe-inspiring, the pictures that accompany this sight are all the the views you will experience from you visit.

I was born hear and my first language was Irish I Came from a large family of 8 kids. I became a nurse where I traveled to England for work in my younger days but my heart never left home, I returned where myself and my husband Alec reared our family.
philomena purchased this Cottage in 2006
Why philomena chose County Kerry
Alec and I build the house as we wanted to share this piece of Heaven with our guests . Never have i grown tired of the view or even seen a place to equal the place that i call home. Within a few minutes walk you are on the magical beach of clogher which you see from the cottage or Cuis Na Naon where generations of my family have fished from to rear there big family.
What makes this Cottage unique
The view/Peace/Tranquility/Walks or Tracks and simple life... come and see for yourself!!

Heaven on Earth!!
I was tempted to write a sour review only to keep the place to ourselves, but truth is, we all need to share the beauty and wonderment of God's grace which can be found sitting in living room overlooking Clogher Beach and the three sisters. The hikes are magnificent and Dingle is not too far off! Philomena is the caretaker from heaven. She is also guardian angel of the roads there..sweet talk her and you may get ride to Dingle and Back!!
what a funny and quirky review from one of the finest musicians I have every met and such a wonderful and funny human being!!
So glad you enjoyed your stay in 'Heaven on Earth' and climbing over the balcony to look at the stars !! hope to have you great guys back so I can teach you the rules of the road AS I KNOW THEM...love you guys
Everything about our stay was wonderful. The house was lovely and well-appointed, the scenery was unbelievably beautiful, and we thoroughly enjoyed meeting and visiting with Philomena, her daughter, Sharon, and the other amazing folks we met in Dingle.
This rental is the best.
The view is magical. The beauty never ends. The hosts are so kind and the house has everything you need. We want to go back again.
We enjoyed a relaxing time at the stone cottage, taking in the changing views and enjoying the peacefulness of the area. The house had all the little essential things that one often would forget to bring or take for granted at home.
We had an Irish breakfast every morning, a little exploring by day and a turf fire by night. We watched Ryan’s Daughter on the DVD player and then later explored some of the areas in the film like around the house and further afield like Inch beach. We discovered lots of little beaches and quite a few cosy pubs. The walk near Clogher beach that loops around the head was enjoyable and quite manageable. The walk in the opposite direction was a little more rugged, but good fun all the same. It was reassuring to know that if we needed anything Phil, Sharon and Alec were very approachable and close by. Thank you for such a lovely stay.
Ed and family...thank you for a great review and it was such a pleasure to be your host.
We are so happy you all enjoyed you stay in the Dingle Peninsula and that you picked our home away from home...hope to see you again
on your next trip.
A home away from home with incredible views
Everything was perfect. The house, the location, the views, our hostess. My husband and I stayed with my two boys (4 and 3 years old). They enjoyed every minute of it. We loved the views, walking around the property, enjoyed the fire at night with a glass of wine, our little trips around the area, Dingle, the pubs at Ballyferriter... It is a beautiful property with beautiful views and beautiful people. Everything was clean and was working perfectly well. We would have stayed there longer if we could!! I am sure that someday we will go back to the Stone House. Our hostess was so nice and friendly. We didn't spend much time together, but enough to keep her in our heart forever. I will always remember those days we spent at the Stone House as one of the best memories in my life. I would recommend anybody to take some days off and stay there. You will never regret it. We'll be back some day!!! <3
It was so nice to meet you both and your beautiful and well behaved children.
It was a real pleasure to be your host and we would love to have you back with us again ...we did not meet a lot but you left your mark and we will always remember you in our heart forever.
Such a beautiful view from our perfectly appointed stone house. And our hosts were a match for the view, lovely.
what can I say about you two...so wonderful kind and caring...I hope they wont be a big gap before you come again to our home and the beautiful Dingle Peninsula...a man of few words but so genuine.
