The Acorn is a self-contained apartment attached to a family home on the Dingle Peninsula. It is a four minute walk to one of many stunning, unspoiled beaches. The Acorn is an intimate open-plan hideaway with a kitchen, living space, double bed and work desk. It has a bathroom with an electric shower. Linen and towels are provided. It has a large selection of books, DVDs and vinyl but there is no TV. There is internet access. There is a safe parking space. Surfboards and wetsuits are available on request.

We have just installed a stove in the space, so it will be proper cosy now!

Guests will be left to their own devices but we work from home so are usually here to offer help with travel plans or share our local knowledge.

Nestled between sea and mountains, the Acorn is on 3/4 of an acre, surrounded by mature trees. It is situated on the outskirts of Castlegregory village which is known for its fishing, water sports, surfing, hill-walking, and white sandy beaches, so much so it is known as the Gold Coast. It is also part of the Wild Atlantic Way, Ireland's first long-distance touring route. There are a number of fine eateries and pubs servicing the area, especially during the Summer season. There are two grocery shops, a pharmacy, a post office, a hairdresser's, beautician's, butcher's, laundrette and a gift shop.

There is a practically non-existent bus service (passes once a week!), so own transport is unfortunately mandatory! Unless you are alright hitching. Michael is, and never waits longer than 25 minutes for a lift.

The Acorn is a superb base from which to explore this incredible peninsula but it's also a great little space to enjoy some serious down time.

No public transport. :(

Other Things to Note

Because of the thick walls in our house, and our rural position, internet can be a bit patchy, so if you are planning a Netflix marathon or staging an international webinar, the Acorn might not be the place!

House Rules

We have kept the Acorn cat-free for a buddy of ours who is allergic. We would prefer if guests didn't smoke tobacco in there (it'll kill ya in the end!)

We have check in time set at 3 and check out at 11am. These are flexible when we don't have another guest arriving or departing. Check the calendar, or check with us!
