About the property

House, 5 Bedrooms, 1.5+ Baths, (Sleeps 11)

Have an unforgettable time at the Martramane House in picturesque Castlegregory on the Dingle Peninsula.

This beautiful self-catering house is in County Kerry on the southwest coast of Ireland. Castlegregory, known as 'Castle' by the locals, has become quite the artists colony, because of its serenity, history, and brilliant views. From every window in the house, you will enjoy breathtaking beauty, including Brandon bay, the Atlantic ocean, the 3100 foot high Brandon Mountain, and Loch Gil. Walk into town, for restaurants, pubs with traditional music, art, historic St. Mary's Church, and a fully stocked grocery store.

The area is well known for its hiking, windsurfing, water sports, horseback riding, and antiquities dating back to the first millennium. It's close to several of the world's greatest golf courses, 45 minutes to Ballybounion. Walk the miles of sandy beaches and more.

The Dingle Peninsula has the reputation for having an exhilarating blend of mountain scenery, big skies, historic sites, rugged coastlines contrasted by sandy beaches, and the friendliest most generous people in Ireland.

Great property!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time staying here! It is a very well kept and lovely place! My favorite area was the very spacious sunroom and the rest of my family loved the house as well. The people in the town were lovely! Moe's cafe had great full Irish breakfast. Would definitely stay here again!!!

Lovely home and beautiful views

  • 5 of 5

We had an absolutely great stay at this home. It was easily the best part of a long trip. We loved the home, the town and the proximity of so many beautiful scenes. Some issues to be expected with an older home but overall a great stay!

Basic but Cozy

  • 3 of 5

We stayed at Martramane house for 3 nights in September and found it to be very basic but cozy overall. There was plenty of room for 8 of us, including kids. The living room was a great atmosphere with the fireplace and the dining room was a nice size to seat us all. The bedrooms were clean and comfortable. There are two toilets, however only one shower on the second floor. It would've been nice to have another shower to accommodate the first floor bedrooms as well. The house is located on a very quiet lane in the town. One thing we would've loved to see more of is the view from the house which is hampered by the tall hedges. Overall, we found it to be a nice gathering place after our daily excursions. We also really enjoyed NatterJack's pub in the evenings. The house is located a close drive to the ocean and horseback riding, which we loved!

Charming Country Home in Dingle with just the essentials

  • 4 of 5

Mindy's home in Castlegregory is charming and cozy. It's surrounded by green fields and sheep - the views from the second floor are as picturesque as you can find. It's walking distance to the small town it's situated within and the Spar grocery store there. We drove to many of the main sights in Dingle in 30-45 minutes. The bedrooms and the bathrooms were clean and warm. The hot water was readily available, thanks to the instructions we were given upon check-in. The caretaker who stopped by also gave us firewood for the fireplace and fresh bread for breakfast. Very thoughtful!

However, you are in the Irish countryside, so arrive prepared for what you will find - such as minimal speed on the wifi, and dark streets without street lights after sunset. Also, the bathroom situation is somewhat awkward - there are no mirrors above the sinks in the two standalone toilets. There's only one bath for all the bedrooms and there's no lock on it (can be awkward when there's a large group using the same bathroom - a lot of knocking happened prior to entry).

Overall, we liked our stay though there are some add-ons such as mirrors and locks that would have improved the experience. Great place to stay to see Dingle at an affordable rate. Thank you for taking care of us so well Mindy!

Very old fashioned and nothing worked

  • 1 of 5

Arrived to find a list of maintenance issues which included washing machine, dishwasher and VCR not working amongst other things, although bedding had been cleaned the duvet cover was stained badly. Garden hadn't been maintained the grass hadn't been cut or hedges, and absolutely no outside furniture whatsoever which is ridiculous as its a holiday let. Owner refunded to us the cleaning costs of 100 euro but didn't really compensate for the fact the place had been neglected. I have holiday lets myself in the lakes so I was reluctant to write a bad review however I think potential guests should be aware. I know the owners live abroad but that should be no excuse if charging and advertising as a holiday let in such poor condition, it needs money spending on it to give it more of a holiday feel and appliances should be working, it's only saving grace was its location to the village but that's about the only positive I could find
