The Space

Situated just 9km from Dingle, this modern, bright, refurbished and extended holiday home set in a complex of twenty other cottages, looks out (email hidden) where children can play and mingle with neighbouring holidaymakers.
On the ground floor there is a large open plan kitchen, dining and living area, two double bedrooms ( 1 with en-suite shower and toilet), one twin bedroom, one family shower and toilet room and a hall way with a spiral staircase. Upstairs there is a double bedroom (mezzanine style).

The house is set in an area of natural beauty bounded on one side by the Chorca Duibhne mountain range and on the other side by Dun an Or and the Three Sisters promontory. The seas of Smerwick Harbour lie within the 3km span between these majestic headlands.
The beaches of Beal Ban, Gortadoo, Wine Strand and Murioch surround our holiday home about 500m to nearest beach. Access to these beaches is a available by road
When the tide is out it leaves many interesting rock pools in it's wake and hours of fun for children catching crabs and miniature fish. Also, within 600 metres of the doorstep is a u-shaped harbour which creates a swimming area when the tide is in.

  • Brenda and her cottage are wonderful! We loved the setting - the cottage is situated far enough away from Dingle to feel peaceful, but close enough to be convenient. It's a 5 minute walk to the beach, or even less. The TV works well, and worked perfectly to watch the World Cup. The four bedrooms are spacious, especially the master and loft rooms. The washer and dryer are a nice addition, especially for a weeklong stay.

  • Lovely spot and great house. Cosy and lots of nice personal touches. Brenda was very friendly and accommodating and saved us bringing a lot of baby stuff as she had bedding, high chair etc..available to us.

  • The cottage was the perfect setting for our Dingle area holiday. When we arrived we were greeted warmly by Brenda who had a delicious quiche and scones waiting for us and the fireplace set to light. Brenda shared many great tips for exploring the area and had local guides and maps ready.
    The cottage is extremely spacious (too much for four adults) and fully equipped for all holiday needs (handy to have the washer and dryer available and we enjoyed the games as well). It also has fantastic views and a lovely little beach for swimming, exploring JUST 500m away. You can walk to the local village for a pub dinner and Dingle town is a short car ride. The area offers lots of great hikes, climbs (short drive to Mt. Brandon) and very scenic drives. We certainly used a rental car to get around but liked being able to start lovely walks right from the cottage doorstep (beautiful shoreline, Mount Eagle, an old castle, cemetery and local potters all close-by). I will certainly recommend the cottage to friends and family. Couldn't recommend the place and the host more highly! Many thanks Brenda for sharing this very special place.

  • We arrived at Brenda's house after a long delay in our layover to get into Shannon. Brenda was very gracious in meeting us so late at night and filling us in on the workings of the house. We very much enjoyed the scones, quiche and other goodies she left for us in the refrigerator! The hot water bottles in the beds when we got there was nice touch! Our sore bodied needed it after the long trip! Brenda was very helpful with things to see and do in the area. She exceeded what was requested and couldn't have been more accommodating! We had a fantastic trip!
