We take pride in our little cottage, and love to share it with others, as we feel it is an amazing and special little space, so unique and is a true piece of Irish culture.
The cottage is ideally situated to the east of Dingle Town. This property is a 150+ year old traditional Irish old stone cottage and it is perfect for a relaxing and rustic getaway! It is just a 3 min drive or 15/20 minute walk to Dingle Town. Our unique old stone Irish cottage has its own authentic Irish síbín (shebeen) which is an old Irish word for bar, it also has a wood burning / solid fuel stove perfect for those stormy winter nights in, small kitchenette, bathroom with shower, outside decking area at the back door with stunning views and there is also a BBQ area to the front of the cottage.
Our lofted cottage contains an extremely comfortable double bed (with electric blanket for those extra cold winter nights) in the loft/ mezzanine area and it sleeps two comfortably. Bikes are available at request. Our cottage is an Ideal location for hill walkers. Fresh clean towels are provided on arrival.
Parking is available.
The property is animal friendly and we have 2 super friendly dogs on site who live in the main house, they are called Cleo (sheep dog) and Scruffy (Glen of Imaal Terrier). They have been a big hit with previous guests and they look forward to welcoming our future guests!
Though the cottage is on the same property as the main house (across the yard / driveway from the host's house) the guests have their own private entrance therefore they will have complete privacy.
Interaction with Guests
We are available at anytime to help if needed by phone, or knocking on the door of the main house if we are home or popping into our store while in Dingle town.
Ballinvounig where our cottage is situated is a small rural village / parish just east of Dingle Town. When you come out of the cottage and onto the road, go right to head for Dingle Town which is just a quick 3 minute drive or 15/20 minute walk. From here you can head on a tour out west around our beautiful Slea Head drive and take in the breathtakingly beautiful scenery. or alternatively if you feel like a leisurely stroll, take a left and stroll along the country roads where you will find Garfinny Bridge which is reputedly the oldest surviving bridge in Ireland. It is a medieval bridge and has been recently restored. It is the only bridge to be declared a national monument of Ireland. It may have been standing in 1580 when, according to local legend, Lord Deputy Grey and 800 troops passed over it.
Having a car would be advisable, but not totally essential.
Other Things to Note
As this is a lofted / mezzanine cottage, the wooden ladder/stairs up to the loft bedroom are steep. May not be suitable for those with limited mobility.
Breakfast is not included. The cottage is very much self catering, and there is several good supermarkets in town where many delicious breakfast foods can be purchased and cooked by the guests in the cottage.
Check in from 3pm onwards & Check Out is strictly by 12 midday
All we ask is that you treat our home like your home and to please leave the cottage in a reasonably clean state upon departure. Also to abide by the host's rules if availing of the síbín bar (which will be stipulated upon check in).
From Jun 1 - Aug 31, 2016 the minimum stay is 2 nights.
