Just a little more information about Archaeological Sites in the area.

The Dingle peninsula is rich in Archaeological site locations.

There are 35 known sites registered with the Archaeological Survey of Ireland in the valley of Gleann Na nGealt alone.
Historic Tobar na nGealt is located here in the valley.

We have a number of Archaeological sites on the Farm these include 2 Ringforts, a Souterrain and a Gallaun or standing stone.
These sites were protected by the respect and esteem our ancestors held for the past and superstitious belief associated with bad luck resulting from interference with the properties of the Fairies or Little people as they were sometimes called.

This is a fantastic place to stay, especially if you are looking for a peaceful homey place to get away for a bit. Felt at home immediately with Brigid, she had a peat fire going and offered us tea with homemade apple tart. So helpful and kind, I wish she were my mother! Also sheep?!?!?! First time I have ever literally fallen asleep counting the faint baaaas of baby lambs. What could be better than that? Would recommend a thousand times over. Thank you Brigid!

I think that Brigid might be one of the loveliest people in Kerry, if not the whole country! We had a fantastic stay on her farm and it was so good to chat to her and find out the history of the area and her background. We can't recommend Brigid and her lovely sheep enough!

My experience at Brigid's sheep farm was the best Air BnB experience I've ever had. The people of Ireland are lovely and Brigid is one of the best! She made me feel so at home. She is so generous and helpful. I am so happy I stayed here and only wish I could have stayed longer at this gem! Thank you so much Brigid and Millie!

What a lovely and peaceful area! Brigid is so caring and enthusiastically volunteered to be our Uber ;) She dropped us off at a pub and we walked back (about 20 minute walk so very doable if nice out!) Perfect place to experience picturesque rural Ireland!

Killarney is 40 minutes drive and Tralee 20 minutes from our home. Camp, our local friendly village has quaint country pubs, supermarket/café and great restaurants where you can meet the locals ! And we have friendly pet sheep to meet and hens, who lay eggs for your breakfast !
And we have stories to tell and we love meeting new people !
