This smart, well designed dormer style ranch house is your perfect combination of being close enough to Dingle town and far enough away to truly enjoy the tranquility of the Dingle Peninsula. The property is set on verdant green farmland and the views from the rear will not disappoint even the weariest traveler. For those that love to soak up all the cafe/restaurant culture that Dingle town has to offer, it is only a 10-minute drive to the centre of Dingle. There are some nice easy walks on the doorstep and you are located on the gateway to the rest of the fabulous Slea Head area. Just to note this property is not walking distance from pubs/restaurants so hold onto that rental car. It is though within easy commuting distance for local taxi service.

An ensuite twin bedroom with lovely green views to the rear gardens and Dingle harbour, a second twin bedroom with garden views but to the side of the house. All rooms are bright and cheerful with a calm feeling. Upstairs is accessed by the cutest artisan wrought iron staircase that leads to an open landing area that serves as a cosy study which in turn leads to the master double bedroom. Again this room is light and sunny with velux windows.

The center of the room is dominated by a very sturdy artisan wrought iron table and six chairs. There is a small wood stove inserted into the chimney breast, a TV and stereo system to entertain all members of your family or group. The room has plenty of overhead and lamp light fittings to add to the atmosphere for those long chats over dinner. There is a cupboard and open bookcase with some interesting reading material and games for guests to enjoy.
