About This Listing
Self-catering,boutique apartment accommodation.
The flat includes bedroom, with double bed, bathroom with shower, living room/ kitchen. Sofa/bed in sitting room also.
March through May is the lambing season. Great views and walks!
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 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.
Janet and Seamus were incredible hosts! The house was more than ready for us. Not only did it have all the basics (utensils, furniture, heat, towels, covers, etc.), but Janet and Seamus graciously kept the kitchen stocked with an assortment of food and beverages, the living room had a lot of literature and the bathroom included various soaps and shampoos. This was especially helpful when the weather kept us in. The view from the house is great and it is a bit detached from Dingle town so you can enjoy all the natural sounds of wind, birds and sheep. Living on a sheep farm was a huge bonus and was easily a highlight of our trip. Janet and Seamus taught us how to hold and feed the lambs and we watched as Seamus expertly herded them into a shed. As people from New York City, this was a really rich and unusual experience and we enjoyed it very much! We didn't have any problems but Janet was easily accessible if we needed anything.
*Bonus tip: Janet is an excellent musician and is down have jam sessions!
Janet and Seamus, thank you so much for your hospitality!
Great experience here! We were in Ireland for 12 days and stayed here for two. The Dingle Peninsula was one of our favorite places in all of Ireland. We are so glad Janet and Seamus recommended doing the Slea Head drive. That was one of our highlights. The accommodations were comfortable and clean. We got just a little confused finding the place because most of the photos are from the back of the house, but Jan met us when we arrived and guided us where we needed to go. Would love to visit again!
Thanks for the suggestion Nicole. I will post a picture of the exterior front of the house. The driving directions I emailed you did though include a description of the house (brown with a blue door). It is the only brown house with a blue door on this lane. Cheers, Jan
We loved our stay at Jan and Seamus's place. It is just as pictured. They have provided everything needed. The kitchen is well stocked and they had provided bread, milk , cereal tea and coffee. Jan checked in with us to make sure we were comfortable and had what we needed. I loved helping feed the lambs. The view is beautiful! I would love to come and visit again someday.
The place is an ideally located paradise for nature lovers and the flat is neat, tidy, super clean, ultra comfortable. You can see the sheep through every window!
Janet made sure the flat was warm enough.
Seamus allowed us to bottle feed the lambs and to walk through the fields. A terrific experience!
Our stay was amazing but far too short. We would love to go back again one day.
We've been to many airBnB places. This one ranks among the best! Thank you Seamus and Janet for welcoming us!
What a truly wonderful experience! I was teary eyed as we left ts morning! Jan and Seamus were so gracious! The apartment was perfect - very well thought out in every sense. Nice to have a few staples, bread, milk and coffe for us.
Highlights for us were assisting with the lamb and sheep feedings, spending time with Seamus and his flock, and hearing Jan play/sing in a very locals pub! What a treat! Seamus took us on a quick tour of his home area including a 'backdoor' entry to the ’old is old' Bee Hive church!
The only downside was having to say 'See ya next time'...want to move here and help on the farm!
A HUGE thank you to Jan and Seamus for allowing us to stay in a little slice of heaven - we are honored to have had the opportunity!
We arrived late afternoon and after seeing the flat Jan asked if we wanted to go and help feed the lambs which we jumped at the chance to do. Seamus and Jan were very welcoming and gave us plenty of information about walks to do and drives to go on - Slea Head Drive being one of them which is a must. The flat is gorgeous, very comfortable with all the comforts, the view is stunning to watch the sun go down and to wake up to. We would definitely stay here again and would recommend the flat!
