Lovely relaxing stay
Posted on: 23/11/2016

“We had a lovely relaxing stay in a beautiful part of the country. Amazing house and within easy reach of plenty of surf beaches. The host had left goodies on arrival, which was great after a long drive to Kerry. Looking forward to a return visit very soon. ”

High standard

Excellent house in a lovely part of Kerry. A high standard of finish throughout the house. Prepared and presented very well. Very easy to deal with the host, before and during the stay. Highly recommended

Wonderful stay in this lovely home with beautiful views

An excellent stay! Beautiful home, a bit off of the beaten path (25 min from Dingle town). Perfect for a family get-away!

Surrounded by the most beautiful views!
Posted on: 08/08/2017

Amazing views from every window! Location is peaceful and a bit remote but that suited us perfectly. It was still only about 15 minute drive to Dingle. The home was clean and comfortable and the host was very accommodating when we needed to show up a couple hours earlier than planned! Our family plans a return visit! 

Excellent overall

Absolutely incredible

This place is magic. We had a lovely time during the Easter holidays. The kids (3 years old) had a great time. The place is spotlessly clean with good amenities. Great size for a big family or group of couples. 20 mins to Dingle town, 10 mins to local village Ballyferriter. Lovely pubs and restaurants nearby. Right on the coast with great beach. Clodagh is a great host, very accommodating and brilliant communication. This is a very high standard home in a location to die for with amazing views!

Beautiful homes tucked out in the Irish countryside

Beautiful homes tucked out in the Irish countryside, loved the views and the sound of the sheep in the mornings, well equipped kitchen, House was spotless, comfortable beds. Had some trouble finding the place after a long drive and the neighbors were told to watch for us, so very helpful in helping us find our way.

The place is wonderful, highly recommend.

We stayed here for three nights over the recent June bank holiday weekend. We’re from Dublin. Its a lovely house overlooking the Smerwick harbour- serene does not do it justice. We have 2 little girls, who really enjoyed the house, and of course, Dingle, which is about 15 minutes drive away. There is a nice beach within a 5 minute drive, and several more within 15 minutes. The location is great. If you have little children bear in mind that the staircase is a bit dangerous (gaps between the stairs), but other than this, the place is wonderful. Highly recommend.

Everything was perfect!

Exceeds my expectation. The place was impeccably clean, loved the layout of the house and the skylights provides spectacular views for every room in the house of either the bay and the 3 Sisters mountains, lots of natural lighting, quiet area, and close proximity to all the spectacular points on the Slea Head Loop Drive. Will dream about going back….
Check in and Check out was very easy. Clodagh was very attentive, she supplied us with some bread, milk, eggs, cheese and coffee/tea to start out.

A magical place!

From the family room, the dining room and the master bedroom, there are incredible views of Smerwick harbor and the mountains of dingle. Directly to the north are the three sisters mountain range.
This is off the beaten path, but well worth it. We could just sit outside and see heaven all around us. At night the quiet was stunning and only disturbed by the bleating of sheep or the mooing of a cow
The house is perfect and extremely well done. We felt totally comfortable and at ease.

Great location

Fantastic location and comfortable house. Dingle is a picturesque and interesting town with plenty to see and do, the beaches are fantastic and the ‘foodie town’ label is well deserved. Recommended.

This home is spectacular

“This home is spectacular-view must be seen. Lovely furnishings and very comfortable beds and seating. Lots to see and do with great tips and information. Can’t wait to return.”

Location was perfect

“The Lookout was a great stay! Superb harbor views. Plenty of space for a family of four. Modern appliances and a lovely dining room overlooking the harbor. Thought the location was perfect—allowed for easy access to Slea Head Drive where roads are wide enough to travel it counterclockwise (e.g. access Blasket Center, Mulcahey’s Pottery, etc). Recommend John Benny’s and the Diner (both in Dingle), Murphy’s Ice Cream and the Coffee Walnut Cake at the Blasket Center “forced” us to make three trips there—best dessert we had whole trip. Also nearby was an awesome point hike—stunning panoramic vistas from Blaskets to Skelligs to 3 sisters. Also recommend a quick stop at the very close Dun An Oro historic fort. Not much remains, but very important historic site and it offers the best views of the harbor and Atlantic.”

It was a dream to stay at the Lookout
Posted on: 26/09/2019
We stayed at the beautiful Lookout on Sept. 11 through 14, 2019.
What an incredible home and location!  We were so pleased with the clean and beautiful accommodations.  The host met us at the house and reviewed all the ins and outs of the heating system and electricity, etc.
Very roomy bedrooms with lots of closet space and a nice size bathroom.  And, plenty of hot water!
It was a dream to stay at the Lookout, because it was only about a mile from where our grandmother grew up.  Stunning landscapes, too!
Thank you for a very memorable stay.
