This incredible townhouse has all the views, spacious rooms, a beautiful large garden and as for the location, well you can’t beat it! It is right on the marina at the heart of Dingle’s bustling centre.
The home has stunning interiors with original features and an eclectic mix of old and new, furnished with antique, retro and contemporary pieces creating a boutique chic effect. Unique artwork adorned the colourful palette on the wood panelled walls. It’s just full of character!
Step outside and the plethora of great restaurants, music and bars that Dingle offers are right on your doorstep, not to mention boat tours, sailing, kayaking, fishing and paddle boarding.
Moving upstairs via the gorgeous stairwell with exposed stonewalls, four spacious bedrooms with walnut wooden floors, chic furnishings and delicate art create the wow-factor.
To the front of the house is the en suite master bedroom, painted in restful mauve, with rich berry accents. A double bedroom decorated in soothing sage tones and a twin room with a subtle nautical blue feel—all commanding excellent views across the harbour.
A final double bedroom looking on to the garden, is a sunny apricot-toned delight with retro furnishings. All rooms have ample storage and the beds are all dressed in crisp white linen with colourful cushions and throws
The main large family bathroom is on the first floor, featuring bold navy paint and an electric shower. There is a compact en suite with subway-tiled shower off the master bedroom and a toilet downstairs off the utility room.
The stylish lounge is an elegant escape for sure. The sage and teal wood-panelled walls and oak floors are complemented with a brown leather chesterfield, plush navy velvet armchairs, an original mid century coffee table and atmospheric lighting. An idyllic spot to watch the world go by through the large windows out across the harbour to Eask Tower. It’s also the perfect snug to could just curl up and watch a movie on the flat screen TV.

The heirloom dresser has been updated with ornate tiles and hooks to hang utensils and sits alongside a contemporary fridge freezer. There is an electric hob and oven, dishwasher, vintage style kettle and toaster and a convenient breakfast bar nook that completes the facilities.
In times gone by, the utility room at the back would definitely have been called a scullery – this house just exudes an air of history, even with its updated decor! Here you’ll find a washer, dryer, microwave, WC and access to the large back garden.
Charming and elegant, the dining room is the perfect setting for a fancy dinner party and practical enough for family feeds.
