“Home from home - location tranquil and beautiful”

Reviewed 6 Jun 2014

The house was very well furnished - comfortable, clean and fully equipped. It was like home from home. The location is excellent, very close to the beach and the village. Difficult to find fault with either the house or the location. Will be back for definite, only hoping it doesn't become too popular!

“Fantastic views, great location”

Reviewed 15 Apr 2014

Stayed for 3 nights in april 2014, perfect accommodation for 2 families (4 adults, 4 kids, 1 toddler). Cottage is very well equipped. Beds were comfortable, nice showers, lovely sitting room upstairs with great views. Its the last house on the road so the view is uninterrupted over the beach/bay and mountains. Its possible to walk into Ballyferriter but we opted to drive. Great access to Slea Head area and about 20mins into Dingle. Hope I get to return in the summer and really make use of the wonderful beach on the doorstep.

“Paradise, away from it all in the south-west”

Reviewed 18 Mar 2014

My wife and I have traveled widely throughout Ireland and have stayed in many rented houses over the years. Le Cheile comes with our highest recommendation - it has all the creature comforts, the beds are comfortable, the kitchen well equipt and the upstairs living room, with its solid fuel stove, is so cosy, even on the coldest nights in winter. Joanna and Ciaran have made this house some homely, with tastefully chosen decor and interesting paintings, prints and photographs on walls, nice curtains, blinds, etc. It has been done with much love and it is this that sets Le Cheile apart from most rental houses we have stayed in, which are often merely functional. We stayed for a week last February and enjoyed the magnificent views of snow-capped Mount Brandon from the house. The beach is only a couple of minutes walk down the lane. The sandy beach was nearly always empty when we were there, apart from a few wild Brent Geese along the strand, and a daily or evening walk was a must. My wife is Swiss, and this locality is absolutely her favourite in Ireland, with the wild atlantic and the open expanse of ocean all around. It is second to none, with Dunquin, the Blaskets and Slea Head just around the head of the peninsula, and lovely Dingle town only 15 minutes drive. We look forward to returning!

“Lovely house on sea”

Reviewed 18 Mar 2014

Joanna was a wonderful and generous hostess and if she could have controlled the weather, she'd have left nothing to be desired. But the winter storms while I was there could not disguise the fact that this is a lovely house with a perfectly equipped kitchen, four nice bedrooms, two sitting rooms and two baths, everything was clean, well-ordered, and as described on the website. It is the last house on the road before the sea so the views are wonderful. There is not much available in Ballyferriter so that one must really go to Dingle for shopping, music, pubs etc., but it's only a 20 minute drive.

“Location location location!!!”

Reviewed 26 Sep 2013

We wrote a review to the Irish Times earlier this year about Ballyferriter and its beautiful context. We have spent many summers there and will continue to do so with our evolving family. We made no mention of Le Cheile in the article ; This was premeditated as we are already well aware of the growing interest in this charming it a 'Protection of therapeutic asset':) The house is brilliantly located at 200metres from an Beal Ban. No man made structures upset seascape views from the house, just an occasional herd of disinterested cattle. The village of Ballyferriter can be accessed via the beach so convenient for late evening jaunts to the local pubs. But a moonlit walk in this environment is intoxicating in itself. The house is well appointed with a useful quirk in an upstairs lounge. The lounge is well equipped with Dvd's/ videos -a brilliant rain card for the kids. It also allows us adults those rare moments of quiet romance at dinner downstairs. And where on this island can you ogle three beautiful sisters in the company of one's wife?...You can from the bedroom at Le Cheile! The owners have not rested on their laurels; I note year on year improvements to the property...the kitchen was painted this year...a new flat screen TV with Saor View -small things but noted and appreciated all the same. We heartily recommend Le Cheile. It is a special house in a special area.

“Two weeks of pure joy”

Reviewed 13 Sep 2013

We have been renting "Le Cheile" for some years now and it has never disappointed us. The house is bright and comfortable. It's location is perfect for walks on the beach, swimming or just taking in the amazing views of Mount Brandon and the Three Sisters. Joanna and Ciaran are always warm and welcoming and couldn't be more helpful. It' a perfect place for a holiday.

“Lovely home in a beautiful peaceful part of the country”

Reviewed 13 Aug 2013

My husband and I along with our two small children and my parents recently stayed in Le Cheile. It is in a lovely quiet part of the Dingle Peninsula just a stroll away from Beal Ban Beach. This beach is very picturesque. Even in the height of summer with beautiful weather it's not crowded. The house itself was warm and welcoming with lots of interesting pictures and decorations. There was a very generous store of cleaning products etc compared to other self-catering houses we have stayed in. We found the owner Joanna to be most helpful and welcoming. The area Le Cheile is situated in is very scenic with lots of interesting places to visit within a short distance e.g. Gallorus Oratory, Blasket Island Centre, Louis Mulcahy Pottery Centre, Dingle and Ballyferriter towns. I would highly recommend using Le Cheile as a base for a holiday in this lovely welcoming Irish speaking area.

“Great location in a peaceful environment”

Reviewed 30 Jul 2013

If you really want to get away from it all, then "Le Cheile" is the place for you! Located on a very quiet road in most beautiful countryside, the house is only a couple of minutes walk from the gorgeous Beal Ban sandy beach. The beach is never too busy and indeed you can have it practically to yourselves on many occasions. The house is only a half hour walk (via the beach walk) from Ballyferriter which has a couple of great pubs and a lovely hotel, Ceann Sibheal, which I would recommend for good value family meals! Le Cheile is a great base for touring nearby Dingle and the utterly beautiful Slea Head. Dun Quin and the Blasket Interpretative Centre are not to be missed! Joanna is a warm and friendly host and will ensure you have everything you need for a lovely holiday.

“Just What the Doctor Ordered”

Reviewed 30 Jul 2013

The House had everything you would need. Hours could be spent just watching and listening to the sea break into the bay and onto the beach. If your looking to get away from it all and wash away the stresses and strains of everyday life, this is the place for you. Also brilliant for dog owners.

“A Little Gem By The Sea”

Reviewed 26 Jul 2013

Review by Dean, Aisling & Laoise: Excited we all were as we headed to the Dingle Peninsula to a little cottage just outside the village of Ballyferriter. Away from the hustle and bustle of Dublin. We try to visit this neck of the island of Ireland at least once a year to take in its natural beauty, serenity and get back to the Gaeltacht (even though I'm from Zimbabwe!). Upon arriving at Le Cheile we were not disappointed. The quiet, beautiful beach was only a couple of hundred metres walk (no sand in the car!) and all around you are the beautiful mountains and rolling hills. Out across the atlantic we looked - next Parish being New York. The cottage has ample space and is in a quiet location, whilst also being close enough to Ballyferriter should you wish to sample some of the pubs there. There are also a couple of small shops which have your basic needs covered. Keep a couple of high-viz jackets/shirts handy if you want to walk. We had a great week there and would definitely recommend the cottage to all-comers. We have a 16 month old and she had a large double room all to herself (in her travel cot of course - which can be supplied). Click on the link and make your booking. You'll love every minute. Dean, Aisling & Laoise.
