The space

The Rambling House is where, in the past, the local community use to gather to tell stories. One of the very few houses left in the area with a traditional crog loft, you can sit in front of the fire and imagine that you are back in the past. But with the benefit of a modern fully fitted kitchen and central heating!

Guest access

This is a self-catering property and you and your party will have the whole house for yourselves. You will also have access to the garden and patio. Garden furniture is provided. There is parking for 3 cars. We have a shed in which you can leave bikes etc. The sea is an approximately 20 minute walk and can be seen from the house,

Interaction with guests

This is self-catering and while we are happy to answer questions we expect guests to be fairly self-sufficient.

Getting around

The house is rural and there is no public transport. A taxi from town is about 15 euros. Dingle is a safe place to hitch and we often stay at this house without a car.

England, United Kingdom · Joined in February 2013

I live in England but spend every spare moment in our house in Dingle. We run Writer's Retreats at the house and now want to open it up to other people so they can discover the hidden Dingle we have explored over the past 13 years.
We have a dog, Zip and a 3 legged cat Mimi. Zip loves being taken for walks by guests. I'm a keen walker. My husband Chris, has Parkinson's and has to take things more easily but loves sharing stories with guests. We are both writers and you will often find us working away on our latest projects.
My favourite thing to do in Dingle is fish, and then share what I have caught with other people. I love cooking and there is always a home made cake on the go.
When I am teaching or in rehearsals it may not be possible to respond to you immediately.
