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.
Other Things to Note
We have WiFi available in all the rooms.
Self catering available for guests staying more than two nights. Use of the washer and dryer is 5 euros a load each. Pick up from Dingle is 10 euros round trip.
Linda and Stephen were great hosts. They are very knowledgable about the area and love a chat in the evening. Their place is well situated on the peninsula, just a short drive from the busy village of Dingle and a few kms from Ballyferriter where you can find some good pub food. It's very central to the area with several beaches in easy reach and you are ideally situated on the Slea Head drive. Breakfast was excellent. Overall I'd rate it highly and would definitely stay again.
Linda and Stephen were very lovely, making me feel right at home very quickly. My stay in Dingle was 'awesome' as we say in North America! Such a magical place with down to earth and fabulous people. Thanks again Linda and Stephen for taking such good care of me and including me in your very interesting lives, drumming class, choir practice and making my stay completely enjoyable. I only wish we had more time to get to know each other. Until my next visit that is!
The Dingle peninsula is a natural wonder that should be experienced at least once (I know I'll be back several times). PS - Linda's Ayurvedic massages are a godsend to a tired traveler's muscles and highly recommended.
What a great and healing experience! Linda and Stephen are very lovely and open people that made me feel like home. Delicious breakfast and clean rooms. I even got an ayurvedic massage which made me feel very relaxed. Just can recommend!
Lovely house, room was very clean and comfortable. Lovely welcome too! Recommended!
Linda and Steven are wonderful warm and lovely hosts. We had a gorgeous time with them. The room was friendly, clean and quiet. Breakfast was delicious and sumptuous. Linda is a great Ayurvedic Massage therapist and an incredible singer. Steven is a wonderful musician and painter and we loved listening to his music in the pub. Dingle as well is a beautiful place with amazing nature and a lot of possibilities. We miss them.
An extremely brief stay on our behalf but a pleasant one! Unfortunately only quickly met our hosts but they kindly left us breakfast out. Room clean tidy and comfertable.
Linda and Steven were marvelous hosts. They made me feel really welcome and I would highly recommend them. I really enjoyed my stay and the beautiful Dingle Peninsula.
