                          Wren's Old Cottage is nestled into the hillside, on the famous Dingle Way walking trail, overooking Brandon Bay with panoramic views extending across to Fermoyle Strand, Ballyheigue, Tralee Bay and County Clare in the distance to the North and East. To the South and West there are mountain views of Beenoskee, Mount Brandon and Conor Pass overlooking the Cloghane Estuary. The cosy fishing village of Brandon is just over a mile down the road with 3 pubs, restaurant and a small harbour with a pier for sea fishing in the Bay.
