Dingle house description
Dunroman house was purpose built as a luxury four star Irish Tourist Board approved guest-house. It has operated as a guest-house until last year and due to change of circumstances is now available for vacation rental. It is located next door to the owner’s private accommodation. There are four spacious bedrooms, all with en-suite private bathrooms. The three largest rooms each have a double bed and a single bed, and the fourth room has one double bed. Extra fold up beds or childrens cots can be arranged as necessary. All the bedrooms are tastefully decorated with clean white paintwork and beautiful knotted French pine wooden floors. All the rooms in the house comply with the Irish Tourist Board four star guesthouse standards.
Linen and towels are supplied, as are all utilities, and some basic foodstuff such as tea and coffee etc.
The house is located in a quite country setting, beside the N86, 3 miles from the town of Dingle, 27 miles from Tralee and 40 miles from Killarney. There are some spectacular mountain scenes from the bedroom windows and the sea and many beautiful beaches are only minutes away.
Dingle peninsula stretches out into the Atlantic Ocean and is surrounded by the warm waters of the Gulf stream. This results in a very temperate mild climate where exotic plants are common and many rare fish are found around this part of the coast.
The peninsula has some of the most scenic walking tracks in the country, the “Dingle Way” probably being the best known among walkers. The Dingle peninsula has numerous prehistoric archaeological sites of great historical interest and a guided archaeological tour can be easily arranged. Experience unique gems such as the 9th century Gallurus Oratory, and the early christian beehive huts. In more modern times, Dingle peninsula is famous for being the location of “Ryan’s Daughter” the David Lean- Bob Mitchum- Sarah Miles film made in 1969 and “Far and Away” the 1992 film starring Tom Cruise and Nicole Kidman.
The Dingle peninsula was voted “the most beautiful place on Earth” by the National Geographic. It has also been voted one of the top 100 destinations in the world by Trip Advisor and has been recently recommended by CNN as a very favourable winter destination.
The peninsula offers some of Ireland’s most beautiful scenery, rugged and raw, wild and untamed. Parts of the peninsula are still Gaelic speaking, and all of the peninsula is extremely welcoming to visitors.
Why not avail of a complimentary guided Marine Eco tour of Dingle Bay and the Blasket Islands on one of the owners tour boats (April - Oct ). Get close to nature in comfort, see dolphins, seals, puffins, gannets, and if you are lucky, a whale, in their natural wild environment. Enjoy some of the most breathtaking scenery on the Irish coast. All trips are weather permitting.
Check out our website at dinglebaycharters.
Deep sea angling trips can be arranged and all gear is provided on the boats. Some of our guests like to catch their own fish and then cook it back in Dunroman for dinner- you can’t get fresher than that! For the committed angler, there are numerous shore angling spots that are good for bass, pollock, mackerel, wrasse etc. If your preference is lobster, crab or crayfish, the owners can arrange to buy it fresh from the boats for you to cook for that special meal.
Dingle town is 3 miles from Dunroman. It is a small town with a native population of 1,600 which swells to 5,000-6,000 during the summer. Dingle is renowned for punching above its weight in many respects, and is known all over the world as one of the primary holiday destinations in Ireland. At one time the town boasted 52 pubs, but this has reduced somewhat over the recent years. There are still some old world pubs that have remained unchanged for hundreds of years- hardware on one side of the saloon, bar counter on the other side. Many of Dingle’s pubs have free entertainment most nights, usually traditional music and song. Dingle is probably one of the top gourmet destinations in Ireland, with its many award winning restaurants. Many of the bigger bars also do really good value meals, lunches and dinners. The Dingle Food and Wine Festival held over the first weekend of October is always a very well attended and popular event. Dingle, or “ Daingean Uí Chúis” in Gaelic, was established 700 years ago as a Norman walled town. Some of the old town wall is still visible. It was once a major commercial port doing trade with Spain and Portugal back in the 18th. and 19th centuries, and since then an important fishing port, but over recent decades, Dingle has become the primary tourist destination of South West Ireland, since the early 70's when the MGM movie 'Ryans Daughter' was shot here.
If you like animals and wildlife, why not visit The Dingle Wildlife and Seal Sanctuary? It’s just across the road and has a children’s play area and country style Tearoom /Cafe attached.
Dingle aquarium is probably the best of its kind in Ireland. The vast array of local sealife is featured, as well as an amozonian section. There is a shark tank, an underwater glass viewing tunnel, and the most recent addition is a penguin enclosure. There is also a well stocked souvineer shop and a coffee shop.
There are numerous activities for young and old available, both indoor and outdoor. For those who just want to relax and wind down, there are beautiful walks through the surrounding country lanes, where the only traffic you are likely to meet is a farmer going about his work, who most likely will stop and talk to you for a while.
You can have all your holiday activities pre-arranged for you by the owners, or you can 'play it by ear' as they say here. The choice is yours, but whatever your plans, Tom and Noeline will do their best to ensure that you go back home relaxed and happy with your stay.

I can say our family of 13 had a wonderful stay. There were 6 adults and 7 kids, we stayed here for 10 days. The house was very spacious and clean. The host family was fantastic. They helped us with any need we had, and gave us great advice on things to do and see on the Dingle Peninsula. I would highly recommend staying here. Also, take advantage of the Eco-tour, it was the highlight of our trip.

Owner response: Hi Andy and family, Thank you so much for your wonderful review. It was an absolute pleasure to have you here in Dunroman, and we would all be delighted to have you back again. You were wonderful guests, and I am so happy that you enjoyed your time here in Dingle. "Cody" and "Rodge" say Hi to the Kids ! Kind Regards, Tom & Noeline.
Noeline and her family were amazingly hospitable, kind, and helpful. We have 3 small kids ages 2, 4 and 8 and I was a little worried about dirtying up the place. Noeline wasn't phased at all when we arrived with our kids soaked from playing at Inch Beach (which was a lot of fun). We had a little trouble with the internet, and her son was SO HELPFUL in making sure my husband could do his business overseas while we were gone. The home is bright, cheery and comfortable, filled with books and games. Great home. This was the best place we stayed during our 2.5 week trip.

One word... Amazing
One word... Amazing
Dunroman is the perfect balance of ultra modern facilities but located in an old world setting just 3km outside the historic West of Ireland town of Daingean Uí Chúis (Dingle). I was astounded by the "cead mile failte" I received from Tom and Noeline on arrival. Their warm generosity and incredible local knowledge meant that I felt like I was in a home away from home when I arrived. My biggest surprise was when I asked about exploring the local marine area and Tom took me on a complimentary trip on his own boat and I could explore Dingle Bay and the Blasket Islands. The facilities were second to none with a state of the art kitchen area, beautiful pine wood floors and ensuite bedrooms with spectacular views of the rolling green hills behind. The location just outside Dingle, the Gaelteacht (the traditional Irish speaking part of Ireland) and walking distance from beautiful sandy beaches and great hill walking opportunities meant I could not rate this property any higher. Incredible hospitality, amazing facilities and located in my favourite part of the world. Simply awesome.

My family LOVED this house and we are in the process of planning our next trip for this summer. This time we are going to take our neighbors with us and the house will be more that big enough to accommodate all of us. We especially like the fact that we can cook our own meals. The owners Tom & Noleen also have boats that do trip to the Blasket islands and Fishing. Our neighbors are very excited about the jou

My 7-year old granddaughter and I came to Dingle for a wedding and stayed at Tom & Noeline's wonderful home. It was heavenly to arrive at this clean, modern and relaxing place after an exhausting trip from Chicago. The hosts were warm and friendly and felt like family! Also,it was the best location to take in all of the activities available in this breathtakingly beautiful Dingle region. Not to be missed!

Incredible House and amazing Hosts! Everything you could ask for and more!,
My family and I stayed at Dunroman in August of 2012 and we loved it!!!! And Mr and Mrs Tom Hand couldn't do enough for us what an awesome host and hostess..... Their house had everything we were looking for a huge kitchen and dining room. We shopped in dingle most days and cooked at the house it was so easy to cook in the kitchen while my young children hung out watching tv. The house was very very child friendly. There is plenty of bedrooms and bathrooms for everyone lol!,and very convenient to Dingle town which can get very busy. Tom I want to thank you so much for taking us out to see Fungi and the trip to the Blasket islands was absolutely amazing my daughters loved it...they are actually still talking about it and of course want to return again real soon. The view from Dunroman was spectacular whether you were in the front or back of the house.. And very clean,they have beautiful wooden floor all over which really suits her. Thank you again Tom and Noeline for an absolutely amazing vacation. I would highly recommend this house without reservation to anyone looking for an Irish holiday home away from home...

What a gem I found when I booked Dunroman to stay.I was organising a group of 6 old friends now in different parts of the globe who wanted a catch up and see the area . We descended on the house after a long drive and was made at home immediately by the owner Noeline, & Tom who gave us tea and delicious scones. The house was very spacious, clean and everything you want for a comfortable stay within easy access to the town. Noeline gave us comprehensive details of the activities in the area. and Trips to see the famous dolphin Fungi & Eco tours were also organised for us. They really are a must if you are in the area particularly the Eco Tour as the guide was superb with a wealth of knowledge. Everyone enjoyed it so much we booked again for our next reunion Thank you Noeline & Tom and will see you again shortly

Trip of a lifetime
Trip of a lifetime
Our extended family of 6 adults stayed at this charming house during the first week of June, and I must say it was a fabolous experience.The house is centrally located for discovering the most beautiful countryside, and only a few minutes drive from Dingle town.The house is very modern and guest friendly, each of the large 4 bedrooms has its own bathoom. All 6 of us took up the owners (Tom & Noeline) offer of a dolphin watching trip in the local harbour,which was a wonderful experience as the local dolphin is actually wild but has decided to stay in Dingle for more than 20 years,.Some of our group were bitten by the sea bug and went on a half day deep sea angling trip, and caught quite a few fish which they still talk about to all our friends. On one of the better weather days we all went on an ECO tour on one of the owners boats to the Blasket Islands,the cliff scenery is breathtaking, we got to see ,dolphins,puffins seals and red deer on one of the islands.There was a guide on the boat who was an absolute fountain of knowledge on geology,history and just about everything we saw. Our only problem was a week was not enough time to take everything in,I would highly recommend anyone travelling to Ireland to stay at Dunroman,Tom and Noeline couldn`t have done more to make us feel welcome. Thanks guys and we are already planning our next trip back.

About the owner: Tom is a marine electronics engineer by profession, and during the summer months he skippers one of the familys' tour boats. Noeline is a nurse in the local hospital. Both have 10 years experience in looking after guests and take great pride in doing it well.
Why the Owner Chose Dingle:
Both Tom and Noeline have lived here since 1986, and would never move. The natural beauty of the Dingle Peninsula is unsurpassed anywhere else, but what makes this place so special is the unique character of the people who live here. The area has an undescribable magnetism, which is evident by the many tourists that come here and never leave.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
Dunroman is a modern, clean, comfortable, cosy house, in a country setting, but only minutes from the sea, beaches, mountains, walks, towns. The unque benifit you will enjoy while a guest at Dunroman is the offer of a complimentary trip on a tour boat to either see the local resident dolphin 'Fungie', or go on a guided Eco tour on Dingle Bay and to the Blasket Islands ( April - October ). Please note that all trips are weather permitting, but as you may know, we sometimes get all four seasons in one day here in Ireland, so if today is not suitable, tomorrow might be.
