A beautiful contemporary, totally self-contained small studio apartment in Dunquin (Dun Chaoin) overlooking the Atlantic and Blasket Islands. The perfect base for hiking, cycling, visiting the Blasket, viewing stars at night, listening to the sound of the sea, with peaceful beaches and beautiful walks nearby. We are on the wild Atlantic Way, at the tip of the Dingle Peninsula, the halfway point of the Slea Head Drive. We are a 20min drive west of Dingle town. A car is essential!
“This place is beyond amazing... the cleanest, well decorated and well-stocked place we have ever stayed in. She had fresh eggs, cereals, milk, condiments, fresh pastries... this beyond the amazing views from both the kitchen window and the bedroom window were more than we expected. They gave us valuable hiking advice and we took it... this is the cleanest place I have ever seen,”
My place is close to art and culture. You’ll love my place because of the location, the views, and the people. My place is good for couples, solo adventurers, families (with kids), and furry friends (pets).Y Waterville 10 miles; Portmagee 8 miles; Cahersiveen 10 miles.

“This is a great house. It’s comfortable, large, clean and has great views, unless it’s raining of course! Anne Marie and James made every effort to make our stay enjoyable. The home made bread on arrival was very much appreciated! The location is ‘rural’ but that’s what gives it the wonderful views. There is every convenience you could want - washing machine, tumblr drier, television, but no microwave. The bed is very comfortable and the bathrooms our luxury! A good base to stay whilst exploring the Wild Atlantic Way!”
Our home (a working farm) and The Cottages at are nestled beneath Ireland's highest mountain, Carrauntoohil. We are situated on the famous Kerry Way walking route and in the heart of the Reeks District. The collection of houses were some of the last in Ireland to be connected to the electricity grid (in 1978) due to their isolated location in one of Ireland’s most unspoiled valleys on the edge of the Killarney National Park.
“The cottage, nestled under Carrauntoohil, was more than we expected. Ailish and her family have put lots of thought into creating a homely space with lots of cosy touches. We had everything we needed to cook and clean, along with lots of books to read and art supplies. Both nights we lit the fire with logs provided and chilled with some wine. Once familiar with the road the journey took approx 45 minutes to reach molls gap, however the last stretch of terrain before reaching the cottage is extremely rough- just to make anyone with a fancy car aware! I also wouldn’t recommend returning home in the dark, and we did one night in the lashing rain and it was quite frightening to say the least. We couldn’t of asked for a better host, and would love to return! All the best with the family’s future ventures with their business.”
