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) .

• 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.
When you're ready to book, here are some tips to keep in mind.

About: 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. Janice
