Dingle is one of the most beautiful areas in Western Europe and once you come to this area it is very difficult to tear yourself away. We have had major movies made in the area - Ryan's Daughter/Far and Away - all drawn here by the spectacular views, starting in Inch as you drive into the peninsula and running all the way west around Slea Head into Dunquin, Ballyferriter and Ballydavid. The welcome you get in the Dingle Peninsula is well documented and we all do our best to make each and every visitior welcome here.

My house is situated in a little village 1.5 miles east of

Dingle overlooking the beautiful Dingle Bay with views

out over Burnham head. We have a lovely secluded beach within 5 min walk of the house and at times our

famous dolphin Fungai calls in there! I think what people most enjoy about staying in Racecourse House

is the fact that we spend time having a chat with our visitors and letting them know where to go and what to do while they are staying with us. The house is located near Dingle Racecourse (horse flap races take place here once a year in early August) a much loved race festival in the Dingle area. The scenic pictures I have posted are all within walking distance of the house

and many of our visitors love going for a walk to the beach or walking along the cliff top walk which has amazing views out over Dingle and beyond.


Owner info

Year Purchased: 1992

About the owner: This house was origionally our family home. We moved next door about five years ago as we needed extra space to accommodate a family member who is wheelchair bound. I like the fact that I can get to know my visitors as I think personal attention is very important.

Why the Owner Chose County Kerry, Ireland:
My husband and I have lived in Dingle all our lives and we love it here.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
The house is accessible for a wheelchair user. The bathroom on the ground floor is a wet room. We have two bedrooms on the ground floor with plenty of space, the kitchen sunroom and living are all on the ground floor. All floors are on the same level.
