Our B&B en-suite has been so popular we have decided to add a self-catering Boutique apartment accommodation. So now you can stay on the sheep farm, in a private one bedroom flat.
The flat includes bedroom, with double bed, bathroom with shower, living room/ kitchen. The sitting room also has a fold out sofa/bed that will sleep two. Entrance is private, and off the deck. The sitting room allows views of the surrounding fields with sheep grazing below.
Spend an evening on the deck and bar-b-que some local beef or fish. On a clear night the stars are spectacular. If it is raining, then light the fire in the solid fuel stove in the living room. The apartment has a flat screen TV (Irish channels) and WiFi. Parking is at the rear of the house just beside the stairs to the deck.
Laundry facilities are not on site, but are there are two service laundries in Dingle.
Dingle Town is about 3 1/2 miles from our front door. We are located just off the Slea Head Drive, possibly one of the most scenic drives in Ireland. In Dingle you will find shopping, dining and pubs. Dingle is a harbor village with a bustling night life. It is nice to be close to Town, but also nice to have the peaceful quite nights on the farm. Take a harbor boat ride out to meet Fungie, Dingle's resident dolphin. He has made Dingle his home for over 30 years now. You have a chance of getting up close and personal with him if you book a kayak. Horseback riding, hiking the Dingle Way, and clean beaches are all just minutes away.
Meanwhile, down on the farm . . . March through May is the lambing season, and so very busy on the farm. You can participate as much as you like. You may be able to assist with lambing, or bottle feed a lamb. Pregnant women are not recommended to come into contact with newly born lambs. The fields of our farm are yours for the roaming. For 25 Euro we will take you on a guided half day sojourn up to the top of the cliff, where you can look down over Conor Pass to Tralee Bay. We have spare wellies and farm coats on hand, so you don't have to dirty your own clothes should you be out on the farm.
Note: The house is brown with a blue door. It is the only brown house with a blue door on this lane.
Please - No small children under the age of seven.
We hope to see you soon in Glin South Dingle Co. Kerry.
Roam the hills and fields.

Janet And Seamus did a great job of making sure we had directions and gps coordinates to their home. Janet greeted us upon arrival and gave us a quick tour. Their apartment is fantastic! Fantastic views, fantastic location, fantastic bed, and the best shower we had in all of Ireland. Highlight of our stay was feeding the lambs their morning milk out of Guinness bottles. Make sure you take the Slea Head drive too and go to Dick Mack's pub, great place.
We really enjoyed our stay at Janet and Seamus' sheep farm and in Dingle. The apartment is even better than in photos and the best appointed that we have seen so far in our travels through Ireland. We loved feeding the lambs and running around with Floss and Scout (dogs). We would recommend at least three days/two days to explore the area with Janet and Seamus' house as your home base.
We had the most amazing time in Dingle staying with Janet and Seamus.
The apartment is so comfortable and cosy and everything you need is right there.
Janet came to meet us in town. She and Seamus were great hosts always making sure everything was just perfect. The flat was exceptionally well equiped. The bed & sofa were very confortable and we had all the basic ingredients (to make a feast if we wanted to).
We had lovely views of the surrounding countryside. We were allowed to feed the lambs (I didn't realize they were so energetic !!).
Dingle is also a lovely little town with a very wide choice of good restaurants.
It's a little piece of heaven. I would definitely recommend to anyone wanting to visit this part of Ireland.
