---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

'Allow yourself to be enchanted by Corca Dhuibhne (West Kerry),a land of stunning impressive mountains, spectacular coastline and sandy beaches.
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.


Sheep graze the lush land around the Stone House.
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.

The Kindest of Wishes;
Philomena O'Connor

For golfers with the beautiful Cean Sibeal 18 hole golf course links 5 minute drive from the house,

The perfect location while exploring the beautiful sights of Ireland. 06/04/2016

VRBO Bear stayed here:


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!
