Spend time in a place rich in tradition, literature and culture, where our native Irish language prospers but most of all spend time in a beautiful house where you can marvel at the splendour of its surroundings with every modern convenience the house offers privacy and comfort.

There is few places in the world that will thoroughly take your breath away as the view from inside or outside or on the patio of the cottage overlooking Clogher Beach /Sybhil Head and the 3 high points called the 3 sisters /mountains and the vast Atlantic Ocean,,, the most photographed point of the most scenic of drives .the home is only 20minute drive from idilic Dingle town

This is no ordinary cottage, quite apart from breath-taking views from every windows,the house is utterly delightful and comfortable with oil fired central heating,wooden floors and subtle decor which sets the tone in this tranquil hideaway. Situated right at the heart of what

National Geographic calls it 'the Most Beautiful Place on Earth .The spectacular views of the rugged cliffs which make up the coastline can be seen from every window of the house.

It overlooks Clochar Beach, Sybil head,The Three Sisters, Mount Brandon,Smerwick Harbour..It inspired classic films such as David Leans 'Ryan's Daughter' Tom Cruise/Nicole Kidman epic 'Far and Away'.

Situated on the Panoramic Slea Head drive and the Dingle Way,10Km from the quaint fishing town of Dingle, Golf links, horse riding,hill walking, and beautiful safe sandy beaches close by.

You can walk through the fields attached to the house and feel the freedom of living in the country also you can walk to the cliffs through the fields and sit on the stone wall and watch the waves and the ocean and the surrounding hills and cliffs and feel the peace and tranquility seep through your body!!

The house is probably the best situated on the dingle peninsula with views that awe-inspiring, the pictures that accompany this sight are all the the views you will experience from you visit.

About philomena

I was born hear and my first language was Irish I Came from a large family of 8 kids. I became a nurse where I traveled to England for work in my younger days but my heart never left home, I returned where myself and my husband Alec reared our family.

philomena purchased this cottage in 2006

Why philomena chose County Kerry

Alec and I build the house as we wanted to share this piece of Heaven with our guests . Never have i grown tired of the view or even seen a place to equal the place that i call home.

Within a few minutes walk you are on the magical beach of clogher which you see from the cottage or Cuis Na Naon where generations of my family have fished from to rear there big family.

What makes this cottage unique

The view/Peace/Tranquility/Walks or Tracks and simple life... come and see for yourself!!

The perfect location while exploring the beautiful sights of Ireland.

VRBO Bear stayed here

Jun 4, 2016

At the Stone Cottage on the Dingle Peninsula, we experienced the magic of late sunsets and lingering twilight...the perfect way to end our days of exploring this beautiful area of Ireland. Stone Cottage has it all -- beautiful sweeping views, the perfect location, easy access to the town of Dingle, and the genuine Irish cottage ambience. The house overlooks Sybil Head and Clogher beach. Each morning we had our coffee on the terrace while watching the waves crash on the cliffs and sheep graze in the pastures. We enjoyed walking through the pastures to the cliffs and Clogher beach – private access to a priceless view! The home has four very comfortable bedrooms, each with its own bath. The master bedroom is spacious with a separate sitting area. The best part of the master is two sets of large windows overlooking the sea and cliffs. While laying in bed we could watch the sunset over the ocean. The master bath has a clawfoot tub and each bathroom has towel warmers. We were impressed with how clean the house was; it was immaculate. The kitchen was fully stocked with everything we needed to cook our meals at home (food processor, steamer, etc.). Having a washer and dryer was very convenient. The working fireplace is made for cozy evenings, and our host Sharon provided us with wood and helped us build the fire. Overall, the house was comfortable, cozy, and hard to leave. We spent a week at the Stone Cottage and wished we had stayed longer! There is so much to do on Dingle. Directly from the house there are several beautiful walks. Exploring around the house was a delight! We wandered down back roads to find beautiful villages, beaches, and cliff walks. There are also many archeological sites close by. The Beehive huts along Slea Head Drive date from 2,000 B.C. are a must see, so is Kirkmander Church and Galarus Oratory. There is a cafe just two minutes down the road on foot, the town of Ballyferriter is five minutes down the road by car, and the town of Dingle is less than 15 minutes away by car. Dingle town is absolutely adorable. We had several amazing meals in town, saw traditional live music, and shopped at the local artisan stores. Overall, Stone Cottage was the perfect home base for our explorations on the Dingle Peninsula which we felt was the most beautiful area in all of Ireland!

Icing On The Cake!

  • 5 of 5

Where do I begin? What drew me to this property? It was the amazing reviews even before I poured over the pictures. There is a reason that everyone falls in love with this home. And yes, the stone cottage is beautiful and well appointed, and the location is beyond what I expected, because pictures don't do it justice. For my group, it was the two amazing women, Phil and her daughter Sharon, which were the icing on the cake. They took such great care of us from the moment we arrived after a grueling 30 hours of travel time, to the very last day that we had to make our sad goodbyes. I had made so many plans of places I wanted to visit in Ireland with my group (this was to celebrate my husband's 50th birthday with friends/family), but our best days in the end, were the lulls that we dubbed "Dingle Days" and just took hikes, went golfing, read a book, went shopping, grabbed a pint, or just sat in front of that picture window taking in that amazing scenery. I can't thank Phil and Sharon enough for making our two week stay the very best vacation I've ever taken, and even more so, a very special celebration for my husband as well. I promise we will be back!

First, a very nice host that actually cares. It was our first stop in Ireland and it was the one that we always remember. A very nice house with everything that you need and in an excellent shape. Best views of any area in Ireland. Close to everything, but still I wanted to stay in and enjoy the house and the view.

Beautiful sea and coastal views

  • 5 of 5

I stayed with my extended family of 6, ranging in age from 26 to 80. We found Philomenas house to be comfortable and well equipped. The ground floor was open plan, enabling full advantage to be taken of the spectacular views from the back of the house over the surrounding countryside and coastline.

The beds were comfortable, the house spotlessly clean, and there was ample parking for up to three cars out front.

I would highly recommend this house for its incredible location.

Dingle is a short drive away, where you'll find great restaurant and shopping choices.

The pottery down the road is excellent.

The local village also has good food, and its small store bakes amazing fresh bread and scones daily - fantastic with lashings of great Irish butter and jam.

Unbelievably perfect!

  • 5 of 5

Our group of 8 stayed at this property in April 2017. I can't put into words how perfect this house is. In booking vacation rentals I've come across houses that portray the property as being something it's really not. This house is exactly the opposite of that. The pictures do not do justice to how beautiful this house is. The house, the view from the balcony, and the area it is set in are beyond words. As if that's not enough, the hosts did everything they could to make our trip enjoyable. Thank you so much Sharon!

Unbelievably beautiful. We absolutely loved our stay at the stone cottage.

  • 5 of 5

Philomena and her daughter are so lovely and helpful. The view is incredible. We spent most of our day just looking out at the view from the cottage. We enjoyed spending time in the living room and dining room reading books and playing games while looking out at the view. In the evenings, we would go out for dinner and live music. Wonderful vacation, wonderful cottage. Not a single negative thing to say about our stay. We loved it.

I was referred by friends to this location that stayed here. They told me how great it was but it was even better than expected. The views were incredible. Philomena and her daughter were so nice and helpful with facts and fun things about the area. We enjoyed hikes without ever having to get in a car. We didn't have s bad meal anywhere, enjoyed the local pubs in Ballyferriter as well as in Dingle.

I can't wait to go back. We stayed for a week then headed north to Galway and Dublin. Had fun in those areas but enjoyed my time at the Stone Cottage so much more.
