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 activities, 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.

Linda and Stephen were wonderful hosts, engaging, funny and creative. They've some lovely pets too with two dogs that like to play and a cat that likes a pat. They are lively and entertaining and very relaxed which was nice. Also make delicious varied breakfasts. Room was nice with lovely view, ensuite and heaters if its cold outside. Would definitely recommend staying here if you are looking for something a bit out of dingle and nearer ballyferriter and the wine strand, which is well worth a visit. Also a great cycling / sea swimming area with lively pubs.
My elderly mother and I had a delightful stay for 2 nights with Linda. She was very easy to contact a very quick to response prior to our stay. We received a very warm welcome and were immediately made to feel at home. The house is warm and cosy and our room and bathroom were clean and in excellent condition. I liked the location a few miles away from hustle and bustle of Dingle, yet within easy reach of all the key sights and spectacular coastal scenery. Linda is a wonderful host and she cooked a very nice breakfast. I had one of her excellent Ayurvedic Massages, which was very relaxing and gave the whole stay an extra level of deep peace of mind!
Linda and Steve are wonderful hosts...really can't do enough for you. I really appreciated their hospitality as I am travelling on my own. It has been my most favourite stay so far!
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.
Linda and Steve were very gracious, friendly and fun....Breakfast was very generous and directions to local scenery was excellent. I would like to return there in the future...
Thanks for the nice stay during the New Years period. Rooms were lovely and the warm showers with great pressure were great!! Nice welcome and nice house. Thank you!
