Chilling out in the garden, the only noises are the humming of bees.

Christine and Peter were amazing hosts, so kind and welcoming! I could not recommend staying here more, the house was beautiful and the view breathtaking! The breakfast in the morning was by far our best meal of the week, very delicious shrimp salad! If I had known how great the glasshouse was I would have booked my whole trip just to stay there! One night was not nearly enough time to soak in the scenery. Thank you Christine and Peter, we will definitely be back if we are in the area again!

Nous avons passé un très bon moment chez Christine et son époux.
La maison est absolument magnifique, tant pour sa verrière que pour sa décoration. Située au calme, en retrait de la route, elle offre une vue exceptionnelle, parfaite pour la petit-déjeuner copieux et varié.
Nos hôtes étaient accueillants, chaleureux et de très bon conseil quant aux parcours et activités possibles.
We ABSOLUTELY POSITIVELY couldn't have enjoyed our stay with Christine and her husband Peter more! The home itself is so stunning, perfectly curated and cozy as anything and Christine and Peter were gracious and fun to chat with (with lots of unique recommendations for activities in the area!) The view from their property is also to die for! And breakfast was very delicious but slightly unique from the usual in Ireland, which we appreciated (yummy cheese and meats, different baked breads, granola and yogurt, eggs, and a beautiful fresh shrimp salad!) If we could, we would have stayed forever :) Oh, and the bedroom was private and comfortable. We couldn't have been more at home or excited to have this as our base while we visited Inch beach, the Dingle Peninsula and the Blaskets!
Loved our stay at the Glasshouse!! Incredible architecture, decor and breathtaking views of the bay! Tucked into the side of the mountain with unobstructed views of sunrise and sunset over the water, we couldn't have asked for more. Christine and Peter were so fun to chat with and so very sweet. Breakfast was fantastic as well, with a fantastic spread of Irish and German treats! Would love the chance to stay here again! Now if only I can get Peter to build me a glasshouse in the US...
Christine et Peter sont des hôtes vraiment conviviaux. Peter plein d'humour, Christine aux petits soins. La maison quoique pas évidente à trouver (il faudrait un panneau de signalisation en bas de la colline) est un havre de paix. Vue extraordinaire sur la baie.
Dingle is beautiful and this house is exquisite. So tastefully decorated and the food was wonderful. Christine & Peter are charming and helpful.
Christine and Peter's Glasshouse is really special. The light filled and elegant interior is matched by the superb ocean views. Very welcoming with helpful advice about touring the Dingle Peninsula. Don't miss Minard Cove and Castle and dinner at Foleys Pub nearby. And Peter and Christine serve the best breakfast we have enjoyed at any AIRBNB property.
This year my husband Peter and I made the decision to start a B & B business in our family home THE GLASSHOUSE.
We have been visiting the Dingle peninsula on holiday for more than 30 years and our love for this beautiful part of the country has led us to now make it our home full time.
Our unique home was built 20 years ago and was designed by myself to accomodate family and friends who shared our love for the house and the area. We hope you will come as a stranger and leave as a friend.
