Halfway between the villages of Camp and Castlegregory, retreat into a place where time seems to stand still, a 200-year-old thatched cottage steeped in history and tradition. With oodles of original features, combined with modern updates for the utmost in comfort, the atmosphere concerts held in olden days still echoes in The Old House. 


Sleep beneath the beams in one of three bedrooms where modern comforts mix with old style. The house boasts three bedrooms—a tranquil cottage-style master bedroom with en suite shower room, a family room with one single and one double bed (both with built in storage drawers), and a twin room. A spacious mezzanine room above the sitting room houses a pullout sofa which can be converted into a further double bed.

Please note that the downstairs twin bedroom has old-fashioned low ceilings with low beams at 5’9”, while in the upstairs family room bedroom the beds are tucked in under the eaves of the pitched roof with beams overhanging the beds.


The large modern family bathroom has absolute wow factor, decorated in soft cream and blue, with a large freestanding clawfoot bath the focal point of the room. The classic Victorian style fittings are complemented by a subway-tiled rain shower.

Living Area

The comfortable sitting room with comfy leather couch and armchair is arranged around the focal point of a large wood burning stove, with a host of nostalgic paraphernalia arranged on high shelves around the room, distracting from the presence of a super large flatscreen TV, mounted discreetly in the corner. This house melds old and new with panache.

Upstairs the plush carpeted mezzanine provides a chic space – ideal for parents to retreat for a cosy cup of tea or aperitif, while keeping an eye on the kids below.


The newly remodelled kitchen keeps the country cottage feel with soft blue cupboards (including ample larder style cupboards), wooden countertops, and a Belfast sink, complemented by vintage-style kettle, toaster and fridge-freezer.

Washing machine, dryer, and an indoor clothesline can all be found in a large modern outbuilding to the rear of the house.

Dining Area

The dining area, which you enter the house by, is the heart of the old cottage, with the original hearth feature made from pebbles from the local beach, and old stone floor, and a traditional Irish dresser displaying delph. The dining table seats four  to six comfortably and is just calling out for a traditional Irish breakfast to set you up for a day walking or surfing on on of the stunning local strands. With antique chaise longue and armchairs, this room is ideal for social evenings.

Outside Space

Outside has ample parking, and large gardens shared with the neighbouring house. Due to the flammable nature of thatch, barbecue use must be limited to the rear of the house where the extension roof is tiled.


Thick gravel outside, no steps to entry, two bedrooms and main bathroom are downstairs.

Unique property

“Unique property in an old cottage that has been modernised for comfort, but retains its original character. Lovely location on the North of the Dingle Peninsular with lots of walking to do in the nearby area. Communication and check in was great – we were met and given a thorough introduction to the property and surrounding area. Would recommend for anybody keen to spend time in this part of the Irish countryside.”

We enjoyed a wonderful few days in The Old House and the northern coast of the Dingle peninsula. The Old House has been tastefully renovated retaining its old world charm with modern amenities. Mary was a great host providing freshly baked scones and an evening of music and craic that we all enjoyed. I would have no hesitation in recommending The Old House.
