"We spent 5 days at this wonderful place and felt really sorry when we had to leave. We enjoyed the beautiful surroundings and the spectacular views. The house is very cosy and the garden extremely well kept. We did a lot of hiking and only had to go short distances by car. The pub down the road has good food. So, if you love unspoilt nature, go there!"

"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"

"The house was large, spacious, and definitely easy to heat as others have said. The area surrounding the house was GORGEOUS!
However, I would like to offer a word of advice - Make sure you allow more than enough time to drive the Irish roads and make it to this place before dark. We allowed a lot of time, but not near enough and ended up trying to locate this place in the dark... This is in a Dark Sky reserve, so not only are the roads difficult to manage (small, opposite side of the road for Americans, the usual), but it is VERY dark after the sun goes down (no street lights, reflectors on the road, etc.) and it will be very hard to find the house. Not only that, but you will miss seeing the beautiful area you are staying in! But that was a lovely sight to wake up to!
We also traveling during non-peak season, so many of the local places were closed by 8pm. However, the Gardens right down the street have delicious Thai food! :) We traveled to Cork from here, which was a lovely drive. We also drove the Ring of Kerry, which was just breathtaking.
We loved the sitting room and the fireplace, and were very comfortable in our rooms. The house is minutes from a lovely beach, which gave us an amazing sunset and some of the best photos of our trip. Overall, it was a lovely stay in the Ring of Kerry."
