Stephen and I rent rooms in our lovely house situated 8kms west of Dingle on the beautiful Slea Head Drive. Stephen is a musician and painter, and I am a musician and Ayurvedic massage therapist.
A continental breakfast of fresh bread and rolls, local cheeses and jams, fruit, tea and coffee is included: but, if you're up for a hearty Irish breakfast, I can whip one up for you too.
There are plenty of things to do and see within a few kms of our place; such as, Irish trad music, local pubs, beautiful beaches and landscapes for painting and photographing, swimming, surfing, diving, fishing, horseback riding and hill walking. And of course Fungi, the dolphin! Its also worth mentioning that if you're into golf, The Dingle Golf Links Course is just 4kms down the road.
And, after a day full of actiivities, you can have an Ayurvedic massage to relax and unwind.
We are 2.5 hours from Cork and Shannon airports, 1.5 hours from Kerry airport.
Stephen and I look forward to making your visit to Ireland a warm memorable experience.
Our guests have access to the kitchen, sitting room and back yard if its a sunny day and they wish to eat outside.
Interaction with Guests
Stephen and I are very social and we love meeting people from all over the world. We let our guests be at ease with how much they want to socialize with us. If a guest wants to do their own thing and only have a few passing words, that's fine. If a guest wants to sit in our sitting room by the fire and have a good conversation, that's fine too. Either way, Stephen and I are always here to answer questions and make sure everything is ok.
Other Things to Note
We do not have WiFI but we have a USB Dongle modem which our guests can use on their laptops or they are welcome to use our computer for getting online.
The kitchen is available for self-catering for guests staying more than two nights. Washer is available at 5 euros a load. The dryer can only be used if it is impossible to dry clothes outside on the line or by the fireplace. Use of the dryer will cost 5 euros a load. Pick up service to and from Dingle will cost 10 euros.
Linda and Stephen were great and showed much hospitality. They cooked us breakfast every morning which was delicious.
They're a lot of fun if you wish to socialize with your hosts. Also they have great suggestions on where to eat and drink in town. The house is a little drive from Dingle Town, about 10-15 minutes.
Their house has a great view in both the front and back yard and easy access to Slea Head Drive and close to the golf course as well. Which I unfortunately didn't get time to indulge myself this trip. Perhaps next time!
Overall very satisfied.
We only wish our stay with Linda and Steven was more than one night! They were friendly and affable and we're only to happy to share with us their knowledge on things to see, do and eat in and around the Dingle Peninsula. The room and bed were perfect + a nice hot shower!
