A perfect blend of traditional style with modern upgrades, this family-owned rural haven in the picturesque Irish countryside is genuinely perfection for those who love an outdoor lifestyle and seek a retreat in which to detox, unwind and explore!

At one with the natural world, the enveloping Dingle Peninsula provides sublime sea and mountain views right from your bedroom window. And within the house, there are several characteristics reflective of its age, including the original 1890s staircase and beams, yet selective modern upgrades create a perfectly comfortable environment.  

Leading on from the modern and well-equipped kitchen there is a traditional dining room provides the perfect ambience for a relaxed, candle-lit dinner enjoying an array of antique style furniture and an open fireplace.  On the same floor, there is a cosy living room which is the ideal spot to relax in the evenings, warming by the open fire.

All five bedrooms are on the first floor. Two large and comfortable double rooms are located to the rear of the house looking out onto beautiful green pastures. Two twin rooms and one single are on the opposite side of the house and are enjoy privileged views of the estuary and the mountains. These rooms are thoroughly traditional, with nineteenth-century floorboards, old patterned fabrics and even small fireplaces.  There are four spacious family bathrooms, three with showers and one with a cast iron bath. All four enjoy pastoral views to the rear of the house, and have heated towel rails, with plenty of natural light streaming through the large windows.

In the garden, there is a large steel fire pit with the tripod for natural timber logs, and a small charcoal one is also available, perfect to enjoy a meal with the sunset in the background. There are even two railway lines running through the garden, which once formed part of the Tralee and Dingle Light Railway.

The attached stone barn offers perfect storage and connects directly to the main house, is an entirely calm and quiet studio space, ideal for arts, crafts, yoga or meditation. It is a vast space with room for everyone to enjoy it! There are buckets and spades, beach balls, body boards, shrimping nets and much more for your use, take them down to the beach on a sunny day for a traditional beach day out! In front of this barn, there is off road parking available for up to four cars.

As well as a village within walking distance, there are several beautiful beaches nearby too. Indeed, not only can you stroll to the nearest of them, there are in fact five different beaches within a 15-minute drive so that you can explore a different one every day!

The location of Dingle Farmhouse leaves little to be desired. Situated on the Dingle Way, a 179km trail around the Dingle peninsula, and 2.8km away from the base of Mt. Brandon, Ireland's second highest mountain. The incredible views from the windows themselves highlight many of the leading attractions - the stunning local beach, and the majestic surrounding mountains for starters!

Dingle is perfect for an active family or group of friends, with so much to do - there are plenty of maps and lots of information is available in the house, but just a few ideas include:

Cycle any of the routes printed out in the house for your convenience; there are some beautiful routes nearby, starting from the front door! Go horse-riding along the sandy beaches, take part in all kinds of water sports including surfing, windsurfing, kite surfing and body boarding - you can take lessons at the Castlegregory surfing schools. There are also some well-established diving schools nearby, with PADI courses available near Castlegregory, just a short drive from the house.

The remote location is not only ideal for walkers, cyclists and water-sport enthusiasts alike but for anyone who enjoys an authentic experience of the natural world. If you're into botany, archaeology or geology, many of the world's best have explored this area. There are all kinds of historical sites, unusual and rare species or beautiful cliffs, waterfalls and lakes to visit within just a short walk or drive. And indeed, the total lack of light pollution makes for extremely clear skies, allowing you to view the stars and even the Milky Way like never before - there are vintage 1970s astronomical telescope in the house especially for it, but glance up at the night sky and you'll notice the difference!

Within just a 15-minute drive you will find five different sandy beaches, all unique and offering outstanding views. We recommend bird watching at Lough Gill and whale watching in Dingle. In fact - dolphins, seals, sharks and whales are frequent visitors to the coast of the Dingle Peninsula, getting as close as Brandon Bay, just 3km away! Or venture further afield, with a day trip to the Blasket Islands, via the foot passenger ferry from Dunquin Harbour, which until its evacuation in 1953 was the most westerly settlement in Ireland.

And when you've had your fill of activity throughout the day, retire to one of the nearby pubs or restaurants to try the local offerings. You can find excellent local artisan food in Cloghane or at the farmers' markets in Dingle and Castlegregory. And of course, Ireland is famous for its Guinness, but other local drinks include Kerry craft beers, Dingle Gin, Dingle Vodka and the newly released Dingle Whiskey, all sold locally. In Cloghane and nearby towns you will find traditional Irish music in the pubs, as well as story-telling on Monday nights.

And for all other needs - there is an excellent information centre in Cloghane village 2km away.

Owner Profile

How long have you owned the property?
Our family have owned the property since the early 1960s and it continues to be our family holiday house. So it is full of interesting family books, pictures and other bits and pieces. We only rent it out at times that the family are not using it. Guests are welcome to make use of everything in the house and the adjacent barn.

What was it about the property that you first fell in love with?
The incredible scenic views and the immediate access to both the sea and to the mountains. The friendly welcome from the people living in the area and the wonderful local pubs. Easy access to Dingle and far enough away for a complete chill out.

Are there any interesting stories in its history?
The house is an old farmhouse that was built in the 1890s. The huge stone barn, attached to the house, is of the same date. It continued as a farm until 1960s, when it became a holiday house. The major selling point in 1963 was that it had a single bathroom with running water. As the builders did not know which was round to place the bath – it was plumbed in the wrong way, this was an amenity that few houses in the area had at that time. Now, it has 4 smart new bathrooms that are properly plumbed.

Do you have a favourite room in the property?
Our favourite room is the cosy, warm original parlour, which is now our sitting room. On a winter’s evening we like to light the turf fire in the original fireplace, pour ourselves a Dingle Whiskey, play a few LPs on the gramophone and settle down to do a jigsaw or play scrabble and have a total digital detox (there is no WIFI or TV in the house).

For anyone coming to stay is there anything in the surrounding area they should...

Really do? Climb the mountains for some of the best views anywhere in the world. Cycle the Conor Pass and around the Dingle Peninsula, as we frequently do. Visit the 5 completely different beaches that are within 15 minutes drive of the house. Bird watch and body board.

Really eat? Our favourite meal is to go foraging for cockles and mussels and to cook them in white wine and garlic. After that we recommend a salmon sandwich at Brandon pub and for the evening a visit to one of the first class restaurants in Dingle.

Really see? Visit the Blasket Islands, Dunquin harbour, Gallerus Oratory and soak up the atmosphere in Dingle, while eating a Dingle Gin icecream from Murphys’ – the best!



  • Fantastic

    Posted by Linda on 27/08/2019

    A fantastic cottage in a beautiful location. A great place to get away from all the trappings of modern living yet have fantastic facilities.

  • Gorgeous

    Posted by Owen on 17/04/2019

    What a place. The Dingle peninsula is just gorgeous and the house feels like a home from home. I definitely hope to return.

  • Full of character

    Posted by Helen on 19/02/2019

    This is a beautiful, old house full of character. The views are out of this world. It is nestled at the foot of Mount Brandon and overlooks Brandon Bay. A perfect house for getting cosy round the fire after stunning hikes or swimming in Cappagh Beach which is a 5 minute walk down a quiet lane.

  • Just lovely!

    Posted by Jenny on 08/08/2018

    We had an amazing family holiday in Dingle farmhouse!
    The house is so well stocked for practical items and toys etc for the beach in the barn! The location is perfect a short walk from cappagh beach where we swam everyday and close enough to walk to both Cloghane and Brandon! Thanks Caro!

  • Really beautiful place, great views.

    Posted by Michael on 11/07/2018

    Had a family stay for my parents 50th wedding anniversary. Sea nearby as are the beautiful coastal drives to Dingle and surrounds. The area is amazing and quiet. The house feels like home.

  • We will definitely be back.

    Posted by Teresa on 13/06/2018

    As this was our second visit to the property in two years, it is obvious that we love the place. We stayed 8 days this time and after the first 5 days of not wanting to leave the house and it's locality, we ventured a bit further afield (Blasket Island all-day boat trip (amazing) and water sports in Castlegregory). The information books at the house are chocked full of things to do in the area. I even chose a few walks I'd like to do, but the time didn't allow (this visit....) We were lucky to get the fabulous Irish summer of 2018 and even asked Caro if we could stay an extra day. She responded straight away to let us know it was no problem at all. I highly recommend this fantastic house.
