Fisherman’s rest is aptly named as it is looking right on to the sea, If you step out the door and across a narrow road you are on a pebbly beach, more sandy when the tide is out. If you fancy a morning dip in Dingle Bay you’re in exactly the right spot. Looking out the windows you have the sea in front of you, Inch beach and the Dingle peninsula to your right and the splendour of the Iveragh peninsula to your left. This house is newly built to the highest specification, it sleeps eight extremely comfortably with very tasteful luxurious bedrooms and bathrooms and comfortable, elegant, smart, bright living room, kitchen and dining area looking out at the sea. As the sun goes down over the bay, in front of you, expect amazing light and red skies.
