Our stay at Lorna's chalet was wonderful! It was the perfect location for exploring the Dingle Peninsula. The chalet was very comfortable, and filled with many fun, quirky touches. The grounds and gardens were lovely, and there were friendly dogs and cats stopping by to say hello. The kitchen in the chalet was perfect for two, but we had breakfast at Lorna's Pheonix Restaurant each morning-- the food was delcious, fresh, and filled with tasty herbs and veggies from the garden. The chalet is a great place to stay if you want to explore the region, or if you just want to curl up with a book. We would definitely stay there again!

Fantastic location for visiting hills, beaches, wildlife, history. Chalet very comfortable - nestling in Lovely gardens - and next to restaurant serving delicious, wholesome food all day. Lorna and Billy very helpful with local info and tips. As a light sleeper I was worried about the noise from the road from reading previous reviews, but it didn't bother me at all.

Great place in the middle of nowhere. Pubs, oil, groceries, 5 min by car. Beautiful garden and cosy organic restaurant. Road just 3meters away windows of the chalet, some noise at night but no big trouble. Good location for those who want to enjoy dingle's and ring of Kerry's sights and atmosphere. The Phoenix people are friendly and helpful.
