Dingle cottage description

WIFI AVAILABLE
WELCOME TO THE SPLENDOUR OF THE DINGLE
PENINSULA
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.

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'.




Situated on the Panoramic Slea Head drive and the Dingle Way,10Km from the quaint fishing town of Dingle, Golf links, horse riding,hill walking, and beautiful safe sandy beaches close by.


Sheep graze the lush land around the Stone House as do ponies from time to time,if the ponies are there they like you to pay them a little attention and feed them carrots/apples.

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.
