Dingle house description

At the foot of Mount Brandon, Ireland’s second highest peak, this bright, modern residence is an ideal place to stay during your visit to the Dingle Peninsula.

It is fitted with all modern conveniences to ensure your comfort. Features include underfloor heating and instant hotwater 24/7. The house has satelite TV for your enjoyment, offering a choice of over fifty channels. Enjoy a movie/animation from our DVD collection. Choose a book from our library. Keep in touch with home using WIFI (2 Gigabytes free per booking).

Situated in the countryside you will enjoy the spectacular, rugged beauty of West Kerry, while the town of Dingle, with its countless attractions, is a mere 7 miles away.

Walkers love West Kerry with its designated trails and walks of varying length and difficulty. Many visitors will simply take a leisurely stroll along one of the many beaches while others relish the challenge of reaching Mount Brandon’s peak (3,000 feet) or trekking along ‘Cosán na Naomh’ (The Saints’ Path) which is fifteen miles from start to finish.

The owner has put together some information, directions and photographs of hill and cliff top walks that start and finish at the house. These packs are easy to follow and will be available to you during your stay.

It can be said that the Dingle Peninsula is the archaeological capital of Ireland. Googling ‘Dingle’ and ‘archaeology’ throws up over 46,000 hits! The area boasts Bronze Age standing stones, Iron Age promontory forts, early Christian monastic sites and medieval ring forts. All of these sites are within a short driving-distance of the residence, while the view from the sunroom will reveal a hilltop seventeenth century towerhouse. A thirty minute climb will get you to this towerhouse. It is well worth the effort with views of Mount Brandon to the northeast, the Blasket Islands to the south and, on the rare occasion, County Clare to the north.

Most of Corca Dhuibhne, to give the peninsula its Gaelic name, is a Gaeltacht where Gaeilge or Gaelic is still widely spoken. Cuirimid fáilte faoi leith i gcónaí roimh lucht labhartha na Gaeilge teacht inár measc.

Traditional Gaelic songs can regularly be heard in some of the local pubs not to mention the best of Traditional Irish music.

                          About the owner: My name is Kevin, I'm a primary school teacher. I love the outdoors and spend a lot of my leisure time either hill walking or sea-angling from the shore. The photo shows me at the top of Mount Brandon, Summer 2011.

                          The Unique Benefits at this House:
                          The property is situated in one of the last remaining Gaelic-speaking areas in Ireland. While staying here you can enjoy all that the Dingle peninsula has to offer.
