Quaint and quirky with up-cycled charm. The Nest is a grass roofed cottage/cabin nestling less than 2 miles from Dingle Town. From the double bedroom you can reach into the conservatory pick flowers and fruit in season.
There is a shower room with basin and toilet. The emphasis has been on keeping things simple and rustic. There is a peat burning stove for cosy winter evenings. Wifi is provided. The kitchen area has a full sized cooker and there is a microwave and small fridge. We aim to attract people who enjoy being somewhere different. If you want hotel accommodation this is not the place for you.
Dingle Town is two miles away. How long it takes to walk there depends on how fast you walk and who you stop and talk to.
The fabulous and hidden Birnham Lagoon with egrets, herons and otters is just down the road. You can also fish there.
The cottage is a fabulous place for exploring the Dingle Peninsula. Within 20 minutes drive there are great sea food restuarants, mountains, beaches, mythology and Celtic charm. If you want a night out most of the pubs in Dingle have traditional music.
If you want to take taxi - all all the local drivers know The Nest - it's about 8 euros to town.
We run regular writing retreats at The Nest and lots of photographers and artists use it as a working hide away. We even have our own serial story going to which you are welcome to contribute.
It's just The Nest and somewhere to think, muse and restore your soul. As the Irish would say 'A thin place'.
I cannot say just how much I LOVE Heron's Reach. It was so cosy that my mother wanted to stay another day in Dingle.
The house was spacious, clean, and warm. Like other people have said, the place is quite tricky to find at night, my advice is to follow her directions literally. And drive slow.
Dingle is a beautiful place even during winter. Heron's Reach is a beautiful drive between the town and the beautiful views at the end of the peninsular. Louise was extremely helpful and friendly. This is where I want to retire.
Atlantic Cottage is a lovely little home near the beach and several ancient settlement sites. It was a truly comfortable and enjoyable stay--if I ever return to Dingle, I will definitely stay here again!
Louise and Chris are very friendly, down to earth hosts. It was a pleasure meeting them. Thanks for the good night's sleep and friendly dialogue over breakfast!
We loved staying with Louise. She made us feel very welcome and even let us take her dog Zip for a walk.
We've had a very nice experience with Louise.
The cottage is very cozy and fully equipped: you can even find a washing machine/dishwasher and lots of kitchen ware! Rooms looks new and perfectly clean while delivering a great retro-ambiance. Louise is very nice and very responsive, that's a pity we didn't meet in person.
The way to Dingle centre takes ab 40 mins by foot but that's a nice stroll! Don't miss horse riding options around :)
Our stay in Dingle was unfortunately very short but we loved every moment. Louise`s house was lovely, easy to find and very well equipped. We were the only guests in the house, our room was spacious and very clean. We had everything we needed. When we got into the house we were welcomed with a fresh soda bread, butter and jam which was a lovely touch after a hours drive. Would recommend to friends and family.
Séjour agréable, maison calme. Bonnes indications. merci
A lovely welcome from Louise with freshly baked cakes, brief overview of local attractions, offer to provide us with any assistance we may need - just a phone call away. The accommodation was clean and comfortable and convenient to town.
We never got to meet Louis, but the communication was easy. The house is lovely and has everything you need. It has an amazing view of the hills and fields. Very remote, but we found it easy to hitchhike to where we wanted to go. Dingle is a beautiful place and should not be missed! We highly recommend staying at Louis' if you plan on going.
Heron's Reach is a wonderful place. Communication was great. We had the time of our lives in Dingle and hated to leave. Thanks so much for a great stay!
