Dingle house description

This beautiful Irish country home is situated just a short stroll from the beach in Minard (an area of outstanding natural beauty) and provides all of the finest amenities to make a memorable family vacation. The peaceful and tranquil location also makes this an ideal location for Artists/Writers and Photographers. You cannot fail to be filled with inspiration.

The house sleeps 2-11 people and offers its guests all of the home from home comforts including satellite TV and Wi-Fi. Four of the bedrooms are en-suite and there is also a further bedroom and separate shower room located on the ground floor.

The beautiful secluded sandy beach in Minard is just a short stroll away from the house, known locally as Beal na gCloc. Perfect for having picnics, shelling and swimming. If you enjoy fishing, why not try your hand at beach casting and catch your own Sea Bass for dinner!

On your return after a day out exploring the Dingle Peninsula, there's a cosy lounge for relaxing with a glass of wine in front of the log burning stove. Choose a book to read or a watch a movie from the owners own collection.

The spacious country kitchen also has a seating area, so you can chat with you friends whilst preparing dinner. There's also a separate breakfast/dining room with a table that extends to seat 8 people.

Outside the garden has a lawn area and a decked area with further seating, so you can BBQ outdoors if you prefer.

Things to do:

The quaint town of Dingle with its colourful shops, art galleries and numerous excellent restaurants is just a short drive away. When it comes to dining out you will be spoilt for choice. Dingle is a real foodie's hotspot. Most of the pubs have traditional music nightly, so you'll be sure to enjoy the 'Craic n Ceol'.

There are plenty of outdoor activities to do such as walking, surfing, diving, sailing, fishing, climbing, swimming, horse-riding, golfing and hiking. From the Marina you can take an eco-boat tour or take a trip out to the Blasket Islands.

Slea Head Drive is a must see. Don’t forget to take your camera for some breath taking photo opportunities.

The whole Peninsula is dotted with historical and archaeological sites of interest for you to visit and this house is the perfect base to explore all of the delights of Dingle, Killarney, Kenmare and West Cork.

Property Manager Julie is close by and will be on hand for any queries you may have during your stay.

          Car: Necessary

          Minard is one the most beautiful areas on the Dingle Peninsula and this is reflected by its inclusion on the famous 'Dingle Way'. This popular walker’s route goes through the area, passing Minard Castle and Lispole village before joining a mountain track that leads to the old Conor Pass road and into Dingle. If scenery is your thing, you won't be disappointed!

          On Kilmurry Bay (also known as Beal na gCloc) are the remains of Minard Castle towering over a sandy beach lined with large rounded sandstone boulders. An Iron Age ring fort and an early-Christian holy well are also in close proximity.

          The drama of the Anglo-Irish conflict explosively played out here in 1650 and 300 years later Minard was the political backdrop for David Lean’s Oscar-winning 1970 film Ryan’s Daughter, which was filmed here and at other locations on the Dingle Peninsula.

          The hilltop ring fort is located at the eastern end of the bay and St. John the Baptist's Holy Well at the western end.

           

          Manager info

          Year Purchased: 2005

          About: Julie manages the property for the owners Paula and Martin, who live in Cotswolds in England. Martin is an Engineer and works for Formula 1 Racing and Paula is an Artist. Many of Paula's paintings are on display around the house and some of Paula's work has been exhibited at the Arts Centre (Siamsa Tíre) in Tralee. Dingle is where she finds much of her inspiration. Martin is passionate about angling and loves to relax and unwind while fishing down on the beach in Minard.

          Why Dingle:
          Dingle was voted 'The Most Beautiful Place on Earth' by the National Geographic and when you come here you will understand why Paula and Martin fell in love with the area. They decided to buy this property in 2005 because of its unique location and close proximity to the beautiful beach in Minard.

          The Unique Benefits at this House:
          Just a stone’s throw from a beautiful sandy beach. Stunning ocean and countryside views. There is something very soothing about being able to lie in bed listening to the waves lapping the beach. This hidden gem is in the most peaceful and tranquil setting you can imagine. You will definitely leave here feeling inspired! Property Manager (Julie) is located closeby and will be on hand for any queries you may have during your stay.
