Things to do right from Beenbawn Cottage;
Stroll 3 minutes to beautiful Beenbawn Strand at the cove where “Fungie,” our resident dolphin, frolics daily. Howls of delight from Fungie watchers on boats will alert you to his activities.
Have a swim in the clear cool water or borrow some fishing tackle and try your hand at catching dinner.
A 30-meter pre-Christian ringfort is about a five-minute walk from the cottage off the boreen to Doonsean (Dún Síon). This national historic site has Ogham writing on lapidated oval stones from the storm beach at Minard. I will give you more historical information and directions once you are here.
Pack a picnic lunch and wander up to the top of Beenbawn head. Walk safely along the cliffs to the stone cairn at the peak for breath-taking views of Dingle Bay and passing fishing and sail boats. You can see across to the Beara Peninsula, Skellig Michael, and Valentia Island where the first transatlantic cable linked Europe to America. To the west is Eask Tower marking the entrance to Dingle Harbour.
Interaction with Guests
I live on site in the attached bungalow. I am available for any visitor information that you may require and have many suggestions for interesting off the beaten path adventures. Beenbawn is so beautiful I want to share it.
Beenbawn is a quaint hamlet of 19 farmhouses a mile from Dingle. You can walk to town along the seaside by the lighthouse, or take the fuscia-lined boreen (road) past the track of the annual Dingle Races and then the main road until you come to town. We are a cluster of family homes by the sea with horses, dairy cows, and sheep on the hillside.
Taxis are readily available for €7 to get into town. It is only one and a half miles and the drive time is under 5 minutes. There are national buses that service Dingle with connections to other towns. The village is very walkable with numerous shops, pubs and interesting places to visit.
Other Things to Note
I have a friendly dog and one outside cat. I'm open to people bringing their dog on holiday as long as it is kept on lead if it chases cats or livestock. If you leave the dog in the studio while you go out no barkers please. I have a horse that I occasionally keep next to the house if I'm going to ride or drive her the next day. Please don't feed her without asking.
I work in the mornings so please be considerate of late night noise. Have fun and bring a happy attitude.
Location is perfect， beside sea and beach. Only about 2-3mins drive to dingle town centre. Maureen is a very generous and welcoming host. The house is well designed. Private entrance was a plus. One of the lads was disappointed by the lack of wifi but I personally thought it was great that we could enjoy the scene instead socialisng on the phone;)
Maureen was a great host. She was very helpful with directions and recommendations for food and drink. Make sure she tells you how to get to the Tower for a good (short) hike and great views. The studio is attached to the side of the house. It was very clean and cozy and Maureen provided starter logs for the stove heater, which was a nice touch. Even thought the listing says no wi-fi, there is wi-fi available when Maureen is at home. We very much enjoyed our stay and would stay there again, for sure.
Maureen was such a delightful host! She loves her town of Dingle and loves sharing it with others. Her place was lovely and clean and right by the water. She spent a good bit of time giving us directions, recommendations and tips on our time in Dingle.
Maureen was wonderful, and the place was perfect. We especially loved the location, which has easy access to what ended up being our favorite hike on the peninsula. Beautiful cliff views and access to the beach made this place great! It was also very close to town, and Maureen was nice enough to call us a cab. Cozy accommodations and a kind and gracious host. It was our honeymoon and Maureen had a chilled bottle of bubbly waiting! Maureen, we hope to return!
Obwohl wir erst kurz vor Mitternacht, viel später als geplant angekommen sind war Maureen noch wach, hat uns herzlich empfangen und willkommen geheissen.
Das Haus und der Ort ist wie auf den Fotos. Ein wunderbarer Ort so nahe bei Dingle. Wir waren nur drei Nächte da, würde oder werde sofort wieder zu Maureen, auch um bei ihr noch ein paar Tipps abzholen, was es in der Nähe von Dingle noch zu sehen gibt.
Maureen was a wonderful host. She took the time to explain how all the Different (Irish) things worked in her home. Incredibly knowledgeable of Dingle, quick to suggest driving routes and places to see. Excellent ocean view from the kitchen and living area. Maureen's place is clean and open, every thing you might need is close at hand. BBQ was the first we had seen in Ireland. :) Pleasant and quiet neighborhood. Will stay with her next time we make it to Ireland.
We had a great week in Dingle with Maureen who was very helpful. Accommodation was even better than we imagined, very spacious!
Lovely being near the beach and on edge of town. Heating excellent, even peat for the fire!! Thanks for a lovely stay, Maureen.
About the Host, Maureen
I love to share interesting tips about Dingle and can give you lots of foodie recommendations as well as local activities. I have a dog named Teddy that welcomes everyone and one horse named Molly as well as an outdoor cat named Beanie. I have lived in the states and have travelled extensively. I like to explore diverse cultures and places as well as enjoy being in nature. I am a relaxed host but I like things neat and clean.
