    "This property was Heaven on Earth for our family. The location on the Dingle peninsula was the perfect spot for day trips all along the coast, especially so close to Dingle. The detail in the home was beautiful and truthfully I was praying this home really existed because it was that amazing in the photos. YES IT DOES EXIST🌈 AND THE VIEW WAS SPECTACULAR! We have five in our family and our three kids all had their own rooms. Francis helped get us settled and even met us to follow her to the home. She was so kind and thoughtful. Lucky to have found this home!"

  • 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!!"

  • Perfect

    "We had a wonderful week in West Cork in this beautiful home. The house is nicer and larger than the photos indicate. All the bedrooms are very large and our party of 5 adults and 2 kids had more than enough space. The kitchen was huge, the bathrooms had hotel-quality fittings. Everything was very clean and comfortable and the owners kindly left us a bottle of wine. We've been vacationing in this area for a few years and this is a great price for such a nice, spacious house. The location is also fantastic: you can walk or cycle out the door to beaches and fabulous views. I wish we were still there!"

  • Wonderful Irish Adventure!!

    "We had a Fantastic time while staying at the Aghaboe house despite the coldest March on Record. Our family, consisiting of 2 Grand Parents, 2 Parents and 2 Boys ages 13 and 10, stayed at the house for about a week travelling each day to a different Irish attraction. The House provided a Perfect back drop to our wanting to be as close to Ireland as possible. We loved the centuries old house over looking the Mult-century old Abby. The simplicity of the farm-land surroundings was gorgeous. We saved loads of money by having family meals prepared on the old AGA Stove (adventure all its own). The House was very accomodating with warm beds and history in every nook & craney. The location is perfect as we were able to do the Ring of Kerry, Kilkenny and Cork all in day trips. I was worried the boys were not appreciating the trip and asked if they would rather have been on the beach where most of their friends went for the week and they gave a quick and resounding NO. Many Thanks to Mike and Rod for helping us make the most of this trip and making it as authentic and fulfilling as any trip can be."
