About the property

Cottage, 3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 3-5)

With breathtaking sea, Blasket Island and Mount Eagle views, this traditionally designed modern cottage, is situated in a wild and wonderful part of the Dingle Peninsula - Dunquin Village (Dún Chaoin) . Loved for its rugged beauty, this area of Kerry is a landscape of contrasts from the isolated rocky coastline to the miles of golden sandy beaches. Lots of traditional music and dancing in the friendly pubs (the nearest is 100 yards). Ventry (7 miles) has a Blue Flag beach and water sports center.

Entrance to attractive open-plan living room with open fire stone fireplace, rocking chair with sheep skin throw and wooden floor and rugs. Kitchen/Dining area with local slate floor and open fireplace. All modern facilities.

One queen and one Double Room (one w/Shower/W.C.) with wooden frame beds and wooden furnishings, 1 Single Room with wooden frame bed and furnishings. Bathroom/Shower/W.C. Wooden floors and rugs throughout.


• Walking distance to Krugers Pub, An Portan Restaurant (seasonal opening) and the Blasket Island Centre and café - the center combines sculpture, miniature and audio-visual to recreate the unique world of the islands

• Nearby beaches include breathtaking Coomeenole with a cobbled road down to it and picnic area near the car park and majestic and powerful Clochar Beach which opens into the mighty Atlantic Ocean

• 3 miles from the world renowned Louis Mulcahy pottery store

Town: Ireland, Dingle Peninsula, Dunquin

The cottage is ideally situated for exploring the Dingle Peninsula and surrounding areas. Nearby villages and towns include Ballyferriter (3miles), Ventry (7 miles) and Dingle (10 miles). Tralee which is about a 40 minute drive offers great restaurants, shopping, kids center and a beautiful theatre with live traditional irish music dance (a must!). Dunquin has been described as the Land of Extremes; extreme isolation at Europe’s periphery, extreme beauty of land, water and sky, extreme fluency in their native tongue, and extreme sadness when you have to leave!

The Blasket islands provides some of the most spectacular scenery to be found anywhere in the world. In 1953, as a result of emigration, the Great Blasket was finally abandoned and its 22 remaining inhabitants transferred to the mainland. However, from April to October every year both visitors and locals venture back to the Great Blasket for either a day trip or a few days camping. Ferries leave from Dunquin Pier (a magnificent feet of architecture in itself) every half hour.

About Janice Martiak

My father-in-law traveled to Ireland and when he drove over the hill and saw the amazing view, he fell in love with Dunquin. I am one of three daughter in laws and I have been managing the property for him the last few years. We have had many repeat renters over the years and family and friends who visit just love it as much as we do. We hope you will feel the same.

bel endroit

  • 3 of 5

un sejour tres agreable dans un endroit plus que sublime; le cottage est tres confortable.

l arivee est un peu complique car les identifications etaient un peu sybilines.

l equipement est correct mais la tv et le dvd ne fonctionnent pas; bien prevoir un equipement de substitution si vous le souhaitez ou avez des enfants.

en arrivant, des aliments pourissaient dans le four a micro onde et les poubelles n etaient pas videes.

nous attendons le remboursement de la caution pour etre complement satisfait de notre sejour
