About this listing
An apartment in the heart of Dingle, a few minutes walk to the sea. It has one double bedroom, one single bedroom. The living room and full kitchen are combined. It is a quiet space with free wifi, no TV and invites you to rest and BE.
Besides the two separate bedrooms there is also a sofa bed in the living room.But as the Flat is small I'd like to usually rent it to two people only.
There is a dehumidifier in the flat as well as electric heaters for cooler weather.
The Flat has a separate entrance and no amenities have to be shared. At times the garden of the Meditation Centre can be used.
Interaction with Guests
I like to know my guests, but I would usually not have much interaction. I would usually be available for advice and support if necessary.
The neighborhood is generally quiet and peaceful. The Flat faces the back of John Street.
Getting around by foot is best in Dingle, but to explore the western part of the Peninsula you'll need a car or rent a bycicle in town.
Other Things to Note
There's a new beautiful Gym right beside the Little Flat. Private parking is available beside the Flat.
I'm open to give a special rate for those who travel alone and stay by themselves in the flat.
I expect guests to be respectful and take care of the Little Flat. As it is at times used for people who come here to meditate it has a special energy which I like to be maintained. Smoking is not allowed, but there is outside space for it. A small dog might be allowed at times, but there are several cats in the neighborhood, so it would have to be supervised at all times.
Eva's Little Flat was fantastic. It was exactly as advertised - very homey, warm, and welcoming. I absolutely loved Eva's garden. It was so peaceful and was a respite at the end of every day. My only regret was that I did not get to meet Eva, as she was out of the country. But she had her friend, Blaithin, meet me at the bus and take me to the flat and make sure I was familiar with everything.
I spent a week at the flat and could not have asked for a better accommodation! Well done Eva, and thank you for sharing your Little Flat!
Eva's place is in a fantastic location to downtown Dingle. We were able to walk downtown for sightseeing dining and listening to Irish music.
Eva was helpful and her place had everything we needed. She even gave us some fresh lettuce from her garden. It was in an ideal location for visiting Dingle. Dingle is the most picturesque spot in Ireland in our opinion.
The Little Flat was cozy, convenient and quiet. Eva's garden is spectacular! The location is very near all the action in Dingle, but it's location--1 block up and tucked away behind the businesses/houses--makes it a peaceful retreat. There's nothing fancy here, but you have everything you need to cook meals, stay clean, and enjoy Dingle.
The little apartment was exactly as advertised, little, but exactly what we needed. My son thought it felt very peaceful like a Buddhist temple, which we liked.
We loved staying at the little flat in Dingle in early June. Eva was a very kind and helpful host and the flat was self-contained and gave us the independence we were looking for. It was very comfortable, provided everything we needed to do cooking and was a great place to hang out when we came back after a day of sight-seeing. Its location was also perfect, so close to the pubs, restaurants and shopping in Dingle and a quick/easy walk to the harbour area. Parking our car was also very convenient, which we appreciated.
The Dingle Peninsula area is beautiful and there is much to do in the area (e.g., hiking, bicycling, driving to points of interest). The little flat is an ideal location as a home base.
Thank you Eva, for your hospitality! We would VERY gladly return to the little flat in the future and highly recommend it!!

My wife and I stayed at Eva's flat for two nights at the beginning of June, and we couldn't have been more pleased - we wished it could have been longer ! Eva is very proud of the area outlining all of the must see sites to visit during our stay; and was available for any question that we had. Christine and I loved the city flat setting and it was wonderful to be able to walk to everything within Dingle city - including the 52 pubs within the city proper and their well developed music scene. Eva's flat is so convenient to seeing the full scope of the Dingle peninsula. The apartment met all of our expectations and was clean, quiet, and quite comfortable. We highly recommend it for those wanting close proximity to Dingle and the surrounding environs. I urge all who are visiting Dingle to stay at Eva's flat - you most surely won't be disappointed. Thank you, Eva, for all of your wonderful hospitality !
About the Host, Eva
I'm Swiss, living in Ireland since 2003. I'm running a little meditation center, teaching mindfulness meditation and stress reduction. I'm using the Annex for people to stay when they come on retreats, but as it is often not used and a lovely, simple space in the heart of Dingle, I'd like to offer it for those who come to visit this special area and who want a quiet space in town. The annex does not lend it self for partying, but rather for resting after a day out on one of the festivals or after hiking or exploring the area in other ways.I myself am hiking with the Dingle Hill Walking Club - visitors are welcome on our Sunday walks. I swim inside and when I'm really up for it also in the sea. I'm busy teaching and love my work. If you want to drop in to a meditation session, you are welcome to do so.
