"We had a group of 9 and the accommodations were perfect for all! The 4 bedrooms en suites were ideal for the mixed group giving everyone their privacy. We are all animal people and absolutely adored their two beautiful English retrievers and their neighbors dogs who also visited with a baby lamb who thought he was a dog! The living space was great providing game, books, tourist information, a weight bench and tv/radio to ensure their was something for everyone. The Eco boat tour to and around Blasket Island was amazing, giving us breathtaking views and a very interesting education. I wouldn't think twice about staying here again. Noeline and Tom were perfect hosts."

"My wife and I fled snowy New England for a February stay at The Aunt’s House, and we’d do it again in a heartbeat. The house itself was clean, warm, and comfortable, and it’s nice that the owners preserved many of the home’s original features like distinctive doors and locks when they performed their recent renovation. And we really appreciated the stash of maps and walk descriptions -- we lit a peat fire every night and planned the next day’s walks and drives over a dram or two of Irish whiskey.
Caherdaniel and the Ring of Kerry in general are a bit more quiet in the offseason, and that suited us fine. Fewer tourists meant more room for us at the bar at the Blind Piper, where we had dinner most nights, and we never saw any campers or tour buses on our explorations. We’re also fairly avid runners, and a quick down to Derrynane House or past a ogham stone was a great way to start each day.
We had a blast on our visit, and we’re already planning a return trip."

"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"

"Our family of seven recently stayed in this fantastic home near Tralee on the Dingle Peninsula. The home is gorgeous, very clean, has ample space and modern amenities. The design and attention to detail is amazing and we felt so comfortable here. The kitchen is well appointed and we cooked many dinners and enjoyed the views in the evening. The kids enjoyed playing board games in the large living area and playing wide games out on the lawns.
The owner, Mel, was so helpful in the planning process and gave us many suggestions for day excursions, dining, nearby shops, etc... She got in touch with us during our stay to see if there were any questions or concerns.
While staying in this home we enjoyed day trips to Blarney Castle, Adair Manor, Dingle, horse riding on the Slieve Mish Mountains, the acquarium, fantastic hikes including the best one up to Eask Tower, and days at the beach in Castlegregory.
We are all looking forward to returning one day soon."
