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 Brandon’s peak (3,000 feet) or trekking along ‘Cosán na Naomh’ (The Saints’ Path) which is fifteen miles from start to finish.
It can be said that the Dingle Peninsula is the archaeological capital of Ireland. Googling ‘Dingle’ and ‘archaeology’ 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 fáilte faoi leith i gcónaí roimh lucht labhartha na Gaeilge teacht inár measc.
Traditional Gaelic songs can regularly be heard in some of the local pubs not to mention the best of Traditional Irish music.
