Nice rural stay!
Beautiful countryside. The house was fine for our needs. We would stay again if back to Dingle. Cybil & Patrick
Glad you enjoyed your stay at Scorid cottage and surrounding countryside. We would love to welcome you both back on your next visit to the Dingle Peninsula.

Fantastic vacation site
We stayed for 2 weeks at this wonderful cottage in what we thought was the most scenic part of Ireland. The views from the cottage are breath-taking and we enjoyed being on the northern side of the Dingle peninsula, which is less "touristy". Cloghane is a nifty little village a short 5-minute ride away where we ate dinner a couple of times at O'Connor's pub/restaurant; the food was delicious. (If you attend the local ceilidh in Cloghane, come prepared to sing a song!) We also had a great meal in nearby Stradbally (Tomasins); a little farther away, in Castlegregory, are several great restaurants we enjoyed and a Spar for grocery shopping. We also enjoyed renting bikes at Castlegregory, although I would be a little leery of biking on roads in other parts of Ireland.
We needed every bit of our 2 weeks to savor the Dingle peninsula. We hiked twice behind the cottage through sheep pastures to one of many loughs (lakes), again out at Brandon Point, and along multiple beaches. Tralee (40 min drive) is the capital of Kerry (nice museum) and the rose capitol of Ireland; we enjoyed a Siamsa Tire performance of Irish song and dance there. In that direction also is Killarney National Park and the Muckross estate. Or, you can go south through the Conor Pass (an adventure all by itself) to the town of Dingle (touristy) and out along the Slea Head drive. We picnicked there, went to the Blasket Island Information Center and, on a different day, took the boat to Great Blasket Island, which was fascinating.
Scorid Cottage itself is very comfortable and Veronica was very hospitable, greeting us with fresh scones and jam. We took one of the downstairs bedrooms (there are 2) with its own bath. We also used the tub in the upstairs bath, which has two additional bedrooms. The kitchen was well equipped.
An Irish custom that requires some forethought is that electricity is expensive and oil and electricity is metered and charged at the end of the rental period (this was true for other rentals, as well). We were conservative in our usage and it only cost us about 15 euros per week; a large group who indulge themselves in lots of hot water or heat can expect a much higher tab.
Overall, we had a wonderful time at Scorid Cottage and would highly recommend it. The cows and sheep right next door were a bonus. A regret is that we were too late in the year for the lambs.
Stunning views away from it all
Lovely and spacious cottage providing everything you need. We had a wonderful time there and would definitely love to come back one day. Perfect for larger families and also safe for children in the outside area. Really relaxing and comfortable for both parents and children. Nice contact to owner.
Scorid cottage review
This was my third stay at scorid cottage. The location as a fishing base is ideal, every type of fishing a very short drive away.The cottage is very spacious clean and has everything you need. Veronica will welcome you with scones and is a short walk away should a problem arise. Can't wait untill my next visit.
Many thanks Paul for taking the time to post a review on Scorid cottage on your recent fishing trip.It was a pleasure having you stay once again. Look forward to welcoming you back in the near future. Veronica
Deceptively large cottage in a beautiful part of Ireland. Small niggles were very quickly sorted. Plenty of space inside and outside with wonderful views from the lounge. Could not ask for more at this price. Highly recommended.
Many thanks for taking the time to post a review on your recent stay at Scorid cottage. Glad you found the cottage comfortable and spaciious while enjoying the surrounding scenery. We look forward to welcoming you back at a future date
wonderful holiday at Scorid Cottage
Thank you for a great holiday Veronica at Scorid Cottage, we had a wonderful time staying with you.
The cottage was just as we expected, clean modern and views to die for. Veronica welcomed us with some home made scones, was available if we needed any help, but left us to our own devices to enjoy the peace and quite of the surrounding country side.
We honestly did not want to leave and hope to visit again one day.
Anne and Nigel.
