"Myself and my partner have just stayed in the Stone House for a few days and we wanted to stay a lot longer. The setting is amazing, the scenery fantastic, the beach just down the road beautiful and peaceful, the proximity for exploring the area unreal.
The house itself was pretty much perfect. The bedrooms on ground level are protected from the wild Atlantic weather perfectly (we visited in late October) and the master room opens out onto a garden full of herbs and diverse Burren plant-life.
Upstairs, the great room is stunning. At one end a beautiful raised fireplace which was perfect to warm by after a days exploring. At the other end the most amazing view; a hundred miles of sky and sea viewed through floor to ceiling windows and a balcony outside to step out onto and drink in the sea air. In the middle, a kitchen stocked with every manner of dish and utensil, everything we needed we found.
I could write a lot more, but I think anyone reading will get the gist!
Superb, we'll be back for sure"

"Turin Castle was my dream come true! The one thing that was a must for me to do in Ireland was live in a castle. Turin Castle was absolutely beautiful. The owners have gone above and beyond to make it comfortable and functional while staying true to the authenticity of the time period of the castle. The green fields surrounding the castle made it very private. We watched shooting stars from the top on our last night. Perfect! My niece had a banner made for me that said Queen of Turin. That is what I felt like my entire stay."

"We absolutely enjoyed our stay at this wonderful home. Not only was the house itself gorgeous, but the surroundings were as well. The views of the mountains and fields were lovely. We saw sheep and cows regularly. There were wildflowers growing nearby. The atmosphere was just very laid back and relaxing. The amenities are all modern and the house is clean and comfortable. We loved it and would have liked to stay longer. Kevin was very prompt in his responses, and thorough in his descriptions. His mother was nearby too, which was a comfort knowing that someone familiar was close by in case we needed anything. The house was also close to many of our favorite attractions on the Dingle peninsula. Thank you, Kevin, for sharing your home. It was truly a home away from home and we would love to come back again. To anyone out there considering staying at this home, you won't be disappointed!"

"We booked with the owner two days before our arrival as our prior travel arrangements got dashed at the last minute. The owner could not have been more responsive and accommodating. Upon our arrival, the property manager warmly greeted us and gave us a wealth of information that made our stay all the more convenient and enjoyable.
Everything you read in the other reviews is spot on. The home is immaculately clean and well appointed. The presence of the guitar, fiddle, piano and squeezebox are great diversions for musicians who have come to the area for its rich traditional Irish music scene. It's location is perfect, just outside the bustle of Dingle Town but close enough to walk (or cab if you're not so inclined). A local cell phone with 10 euro of time already loaded on it (which you can "top up" at the supermarket if you run out) is another amenity provided which was a nice touch and very useful for making restaurant reservations, calling cabs, etc.
Once you wander into town, the locals are more than willing to point you to things which might interest you just for the asking. Using their input, along with the Rick Steves guide (which we found to be spot on in nearly every instance), we were not disappointed. The number of outstanding musicians per capita playing in the local pubs is equal to U.S. music towns like Nashville and New Orleans. While the pubs are where the real fun is, don't miss a trad music performance in the Dingle Music Shop or the St. James Church where the setting is more intimate and the audience more subdued.
One new activity that appears to not have hit the general info guides yet is the Dingle Cookery School on the west end of town. We took an Irish cooking course there and spent a wonderful rainy afternoon learning about and cooking traditional Irish dishes, including brown bread and a hearty turnip and squash soup that left us so full up and satisfied we skipped dinner.
All in all, lots to do and see in and around Dingle. Then after long days and nights of exploring and pub crawling, you return back to the home for peace, quiet and comfort and to recharge your batteries for tomorrow!
Go dte tú slán"
