Wonderful airbnb experience! The house was easy to find with the navigation coordinates. It is very spacious. Helen has provided everything you could need including toys and breakfast items. The area is wonderful to walk in, and it is a short drive to Inch beach or into Tralee for family/tourist activities. We would highly recommend this house for a family vacation!

This is a secluded country home in the Dingle peninsula. Good base camp for exploring both Dingle to the west and Killarney NP and the Ring of Kerry to the east. The house is a 100-year-old traditional Irish home, completely restored to 21st-century style and convenience. We were able to do laundry at the house, so that was a huge help after a week of traveling. The drive up to the house is a bit challenging but you'll manage. We recommend this place to all looking for a rural getaway.

We had a great time at Helen's home in Castlemaine. Her home was spacious enough for our group of 3 adults and 4 kids. The views from upstairs are beautiful and the location great for our trips in County Kerry. Helen was helpful in stocking some supplies that had run out and generous to share her children's toys. We would definitely stay here again!
