The Space

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 an Edwardian sofa bed in the living area which is available for an extra guest.
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.
There is wifi and a washing machine.
It's just The Nest and somewhere to think, muse and restore your soul. As the Irish would say 'A thin place'.

Guest Access

You will have the whole appartment to yourselves.

Interaction with Guests

We travel between Dingle and England. We are happy to share our extensive knowledge of the area with guests and can point out to them some of the hidden secrets of the area. Sometimes even our friends born and brought up in Dingle don't know about them!

The Neighborhood

We love early mornings down at the lagoon watching the bird life.
The changing light on Mount Brandon enchants us as the sun is setting.

Getting Around

The Nest has it's own parking.

There is no public transport to The Nest but town is less than 2 miles away so walkable or a quick taxi.

House Rules

We expect you to leave The Nest as you found it. It is in the countryside so please expect birds and animals to be close at hand and local paths to be muddy after rain.
