Bright, modern house on the Dingle Peninsula. Wifi
Dingle, County Kerry, Ireland
Additional Location Information
Situated in the countryside you will enjoy the spectacular, rugged beauty of West Kerry, while the town of Dingle, with its countless attractions, is a mere 7 miles away.
Walkers love West Kerry with its designated trails and walks of varying length and difficulty. Many visitors will simply take a leisurely stroll along one of the many beaches while others relish the challenge of reaching Mount Brandonâ€™s peak (3,000 feet) or trekking along â€˜CosÃ¡n na Naomhâ€™ (The Saintsâ€™ Path) which is fifteen miles from start to finish.
It can be said that the Dingle Peninsula is the archaeological capital of Ireland. Googling â€˜Dingleâ€™ and â€˜archaeologyâ€™ throws up over 46,000 hits! The area boasts Bronze Age standing stones, Iron Age promontory forts, early Christian monastic sites and medieval ring forts. All of these sites are within a short driving-distance of the residence, while the view from the sunroom will reveal a hilltop seventeenth century towerhouse. A thirty minute climb will get you to this towerhouse. It is well worth the effort with views of Mount Brandon to the northeast, the Blasket Islands to the south and, on the rare occasion, County Clare to the north.
Most of Corca Dhuibhne, to give the peninsula its Gaelic name, is a Gaeltacht where Gaeilge or Gaelic is still widely spoken. Cuirimid fÃ¡ilte faoi leith i gcÃ³naÃ roimh lucht labhartha na Gaeilge teacht inÃ¡r measc.
Traditional Gaelic songs can regularly be heard in some of the local pubs not to mention the best of Traditional Irish music.

Would Loved to have Stayed Longer
Brandon View Cottage is in a wonderful location with fantastic views. It offers an excellent standard of accommodation which is very clean and well maintained. Appliances, linens etc were all of really good quality. The house is very spaciaous, great for families with 2 bathrooms and an ensuite, large kitchen/dining area and also a separate sitting area in the sun room.The house is in an ideal location for exploring the Dingle peninsula and only a 10 mins drive from Dingle town. The wifi internet access was extremely reliable. With so many wonderful places to explore, you could easily stay for a couple of weeks and not run out of places to visit. Kevin is on hand to help you make the best of your holiday with great advice and information on the local area. His mum was a delight, very welcoming and friendly.

Thank you for your kind words. I'm glad to hear that you had a good time. Thank you for choosing our house. Much appreciated, Kevin
Perfect House and Location on the Dingle Peninsula
I cannot imagine having a better base for exploring the Dingle Peninsula than this house. It is absolutely gorgeous and so clean you'd think no one else had ever stepped foot inside. It's situated at the very end of a residential road, and as you can see from the pictures, the views are stunning - a stream and Mt. Brandon in the back, a field of sheep out front, the tips of the 3 Sisters can be seen from the front, and mountains towering as you look right from the front as well. The house is very well-furnished with good quality appliances, furniture, kitchen supplies, etc., and none of the shabby things you sometimes find in vacation rentals. Even when the rain kept us from going out we were delighted to stay put in the house...it's that comfortable, the views are that beautiful. There are many hikes and things to explore close to the house [I recommend staying on this side of Mt. Brandon rather than the other side because it's closer to more great drives & hikes and it will save you the time of repeatedly driving over the Conor Pass]. We have small children, and a safety gate, high chair, and travel cot (pack & play) were all provided. You'll find extras everywhere - lots of books, Dvd's, candles, and more. Kevin was extremely kind and helpful, and he provided information and suggestions as we requested them. If you are looking for a quiet, beautiful haven where you'll feel like a local and be enveloped in breathtaking scenery, then this is the house for you!!
Beautiful House in a Beautiful area
This house is beautiful, bright and airy, and has been equipped with everything you need for a lovely stay. Kevin and family are very helpful and eager to ensure that all needs are met. They have alot of literature available as well as leave phone numbers if you need them, and provide good suggestions for excellent area hikes. They also have WiFi available which was important to my husband and son.
There is much to see and do in this area. It is also a good location for exploring further out such as Blarney Castle, Kinsale, Ring of Kerry, etc. The house is so nice, cozy, and quiet to come home to each night. Don't miss out on the opportunity to stay here - you will not be disappointed!!

house was great and owner great to deal with
we stayed for a week and enjoyed the home and surronding area. home is about 10 mins from town and sits back off the main road a few hundred yards but once we found it we loved the quiet setting and views from the windows and sky lights. we found lots to do to keep us busy in the area and home was set up with all you need. kevin was great to deal with and quality built home with great finishes and outfitted well for guests.
Amazing house in an amazing town!
We rented this house for St. Patrick's Day week and we couldn't have felt more welcomed by the neighborhood, or the town. When you stay at this house- you're staying next door to Kevin's brother Danny- who helps with anything you need, and a few houses down from his Mother- who makes sure you have everything you need.
The house can't even be explained--it is comfy, but modern, and bright- and the views are outstanding!
Kevin leaves brochures, maps, cab numbers, his number--everything you could possibly need.
It is the perfect centralized location for all the day trips in this region--Blarney/Cork/Killarney...and the best of all- right down the Road- Slea Head Drive. Words can't describe how gorgeous this drive is...
Overall- If I could have hidden myself under the bed- I never would have left!!
We loved this house!
Saint Paul, Minnesota
We loved staying here and can't wait to return. The house itself is beautiful, spacious, and comfortable, with a well-equipped kitchen and laundry. The views of Mt. Brandon from the windows are stunning. It's a great home base for seeing the area, whether you're interested in sea views, walking, archaeological sites, or traditional music. And it's a great place to come home to after a day of exploring!
I would wake up every morning and open my window to the sounds of a gently stream and an incredible view of the nearby countryside. For the rest of my life I will never forget the clouds rolling off the nearby mountains. The house was more then perfect: bright roomy kitchen, cozy and comfortable living room, and large bedrooms. Downtown Dingle was a short drive away, and there was even a pub less then a mile away!
Great house, great location.
My husband and I had a great time in Dingle. We highly recommend staying at this house, it is just beautiful and very comfortable. We couldn't have been more pleased with it.
Kevin helped us to plan our stay offering advice on trips to take and traps to avoid. We exchanged many emails with him before we arrived in Ireland.
We will be back again someday.
