Travelling has always been a passion for Clodagh and Phil. They met whilst venturing through the Americas, Australasia and Asia. Along came children and the need to settle down, but in a place that could still feed an adventurous spirit...
Clodagh’s parents were originally from Kerry and on returning to the place of her childhood holidays, she and Phil fell in love with the area due to the abundance of outdoor activities, inspiring landscapes and a thriving artistic culture. After building their own home and with two children now in the local school, it was time for a new challenge. Clodagh and Phil have a strong background in customer service, design and a passion for travel, the perfect combination to operate STAY YNA Dingle Cottages.
“YNA were looking to expand to other countries and I had started to manage holiday rentals in the area already. I like finding properties that have the wow factor and it feels good to strive for excellent customer service, it's was a perfect match.
The Dingle Peninsula is a very special place. We are really excited to share this wonderful part of the world with guests who want to stay in accommodation that is unique and of a high standard. It’s also really important to us that we support local business and increase tourism. So from our linen to our toiletries and welcome packs, it’s all supplied locally.“ Clodagh Edwards
Dingle started with three gorgeous cottages and has now expanded to 48 luxury and boutique homes in stunning locations with outstanding interiors. Phil and Clodagh love to embrace the local community and support other business. You can arrive home cooked food courtesy of Phil cheffing background! and also order kindling, firewood, champagne and book cooking classes at the local cookery school, distillery tours, surfing lessons and much more. Killarney was presented as a perfect place to expand the STAY YNA service and our first home Killarney Haven has been launched, so keep a look out on our facebook page and blog for more homes in this area.
