  • Unbeatable Vacation in a Glorious Location

    "We had the most wonderful time staying at Tra Cinn Aird. When we arrived at the house, Peter welcomed us in. We were immediately struck by the stunning views that spread out before us--mountainous, ocean, cliffs and hills--laid out for our constant enjoyment. The house is covered in windows, so no matter where you are in the house, you are guaranteed to enjoy the view. Peter was immensely helpful in providing us with great advice for food, music and adventures. He even recommended a location for us to pick muscles for dinner! We had a great time poking around the Dingle Peninsula, driving, hiking and walking all over the sprawling green hills. However no matter what we did during the day, we were even more happy to be coming home to Tra Cinn Aird. It was the kind of comfortable, cozy home that you forget is not your own. With comfortable furniture, a great music selection, and even some great board games--we were always entertained. To top it all off, we started and ended our days on the glorious patio. We ate our breakfast on the patio, enjoyed cocktails on the patio, and even ate a dinner out there! We really couldn't have had a more wonderful vacation in Ireland, and I hope that we are lucky enough to come back and stay in Tra Cinn Aird!!"

  • Glorious location, lovely house

    "We enjoyed four days here in June. Kevin was so proactive in sending us information about the property and things to do in the area. The house is stunning, spacious, comfortable and well-equipped. We loved the views and the glorious sunshine! We were very lucky with the weather, but would imagine that this would be a gorgeous place to stay even in the rain!"

  • Castlepark Kinsale perfect for 8 women friends

    "* ladies , all 60 + stayed at Castlepark for a week and highly recommend it. Declan was very helpful helping us plan out trip long distance for months before we left. Castle park is clean and safe and wonderfully quiet and beaitiful. The house was spacious enough for all 8 of us to feel comfortable. Everyting you need is there. We went to Kinsale almost daily. Most of us enjoyed the walk to and from town. Some of us took a cab one or both ways but if you are in good health the walk is perfect. There is plenty to do in town and it was easy to get to Old Head Golf Course, Blarney, Cobh and other lovley places around the coast."
