It’s the most wonderful time of the year… Christmas in Dingle!

Once called ‘”the most beautiful place on earth” the Dingle peninsula is known for its breathtaking views of rugged coastlines and gleaming star strewn skies. Not forgetting to mention the cozy pubs with roaring log fires where you can enjoy the famous Dingle whiskey made in the local distillery, and the endless amount of flamboyant town houses, some of which are little eclectic fashion and jewellery shops! No wonder it’s an idyllic destination at Christmas time

 

 

 

Where to eat and drink

Whilst there may not be many restaurants open on Christmas day in Dingle, there's Kennedy’s butchers where you can get your Christmas dinner meat. It's run by craft butcher Jerry Kennedy (and previously by two generations before him). He's known for his finest selection of artisan beef and mountain lamb, sourced from the Dingle Peninsula itself!

Some of the best restaurants in Dingle are open during the Christmas period, why not try 'Mask' for an exquisite take on Irish cuisine and the best fine dining experience in Dingle! Or try 'Doyle's' Seafood restaurant where you can enjoy great food in a relaxed and friendly setting. 

Wren’s Day or St. Stephen’s day

The History behind 'Wren day'

One legend story tells that St Stephen was hiding in a bush from his enemies, only for his hiding to be revealed by the chattering of a wren. Another maintains Irish soldiers were approaching a Viking camp to drive out the intruders. However, a wren started eating crumbs from a drum and alerted the Vikings to the presence of the Irish soldiers hence betraying them. Boys then traditionally hunted a wren and threw stones at it. They tied it to a stick when it was dead and paraded it around the village.

County Kerry may be quiet during the low seasons but on Wren day (December 26th) the town comes alive and devotes the whole day to the celebration! Here, the people are awake early, and by 6 a.m. are on the streets in straw costumes and fancy dress, parading about waving banners to announce The Wren. The day is split into three parts, Then, at about noon, all the children of the town go from door to door in fancy dress, collecting treats. By 1 or 2 o'clock, adults and young paraders, all still in costume, retire to the Dingle pubs for the rest of the day! 

NYE spectacular

NYE’s visitors can relish in a huge celebration on the streets of Dingle to welcome in the New Year....It begins with a spectacular fireworks display on Dingle Bay, so beautifully reflected across the bay. Then you can make your way into the town, following the spectacular marching band and celebrate the New Year with thousands of people on the main street or you can continue the festivities in the villages across the peninsula - Annascaul or Castlegregory. The choice is yours...

The perfect place to stay for your Christmas getaway…

We have a range of properties to suit everyone's needs -  whether it's the size of the home, the location or if you're looking for something extra special... we've got it covered!  Our locations include Dingle town, Ballyferriter, Castlegregory, Cloghane, Ballydavid, Lispole, Inch and Iveragh!

Dingle Marina Holiday Cottages

When planning any trip away, we know there is an endless list of things to think about. However, we think you’ll agree that one of the most crucial things is finding accommodation you are happy with. This is where Stay YNA can step in to help a bit more than others. 

If you are interested in going to Dingle then we offer you a choice of some of the top Dingle Marina holiday cottages and all the information and images you would need to be sure you have made the right choice with choosing Stay YNA!

Getting to Dingle Marina

Located in County Kerry, Ireland, Dingle Marina is an excellent and beautiful place to visit. Dingle has long been a choice of holiday destination for both those from Ireland and those from further afield. 

You can get to Dingle by car or by using a combination of train and bus. The closest train stations are Killarney and Tralee, and if you’re travelling by plane, the closest airport is Kerry Airport in Farranfore. From the airport, there are buses that can take you to Dingle, where you will finally be able to relax in your very own Dingle Marina holiday cottage.

What Dingle Marina Offers

The marina is on the northern shore of Dingle Bay and there are a number of water activities that people can participate in. This includes a sailing club, rowing club, and diving club. If you do choose to venture out to sea, you might even be lucky enough to catch a glimpse of Dingle’s resident dolphin, Fungi!. You can catch a 1 1/2 boat trip to see funghi in dingle bay and is accessible to all ages.

When you start to feel peckish, you can taste some of the freshly caught seafood at one of the nearby restaurants. The marina has lots of seafood restaurants – seafood chowder is the local dish with soda bread.  You can read more about Dingle Marina here.

Your visit to Dingle

We also love the Dingle community and think you’ll feel right at home during your stay. However, the best way to really immerse yourself in the area, is to rent your own holiday cottage home. Whether the sun is shining or the rain is drizzling, Dingle Marina holiday cottages make for the perfect retreat. Our cottages truly offer you the most comfortable stay amongst some of the most picturesque surroundings.

One of the luxuries of renting your own Dingle Marina holiday cottage, is that you have the flexibility to choose exactly what you want to eat, and when you want to eat it. Although there are certainly some great eateries that you should try out during your stay, we know that the cost of eating out can add up, and there may be times when you’d prefer to cook a meal from scratch. When you have access to a holiday cottage that exactly suits your tastes and is a private and homely space, why would you choose anything else?

Holiday Villas to Rent in Nice

I’m planning a holiday abroad. Should I choose Nice, France?

The historic city of Nice is a place that you should definitely take a trip to, whether you’ve been before or you’ve never stepped foot in France. To make the most out of the beautiful destination, book one of our holiday villas to rent in Nice. We think that this will enhance your whole experience. Members of the Stay YNA team stay in each one of our holiday rentals, and they love both the villas in Nice, and getting to immerse themselves in the culture of southern France. Nice in France is a wonderful place to explore and we think that if you haven’t visited already, it should definitely be on your list of go-to holiday destinations.

 

Where can I stay for my holiday in Nice?

If you’re not sure where to stay, Stay YNA has some great options for you. Our accommodation ranges from cosy country homes to lush luxury villas. We also offer:

  • Some of the best prices: We don’t think that quality accommodation should be unaffordable or unattainable, so we have fairly priced holiday villas to rent in Nice.
  • A range of the finest homes: Offering some of the finest places, you can take your pick from our wonderful rentals with their glowing reviews.
  • Consistently great service: If you ever need help in the booking process or want assistance once you get to your French villa, we are ready and willing to help.
  • Extra niceties: These include details such as crisp white linen sheets on ready-made beds and helpful toiletries. We do this to make your stay even more comfortable and show how much we value you as a customer.

 

Why rent a holiday villa in Nice?

Renting a holiday villa in Nice can give you a superior experience to other types of accommodation. With our holiday villas you have the benefits of extra space, privacy, and flexibility. Although some people opt for hotels, having your own villa in France is a way of making sure you get a more authentic experience of your time there. Choosing to stay in a holiday villa lets you have a luxurious space for a short stay, although it is also great to fully take advantage of your rented home with longer stays. 

You might think that holiday villas to rent in Nice are overly expensive and not worth your money, but Stay YNA provides French holiday villas that can accommodate a range of budgets. We think that you shouldn’t be so quick to rule out the idea of a rental holiday villa, as you could be missing out on one of the best holiday decisions you could make! 

 

What makes a good holiday villa in Nice?

One of the first things that makes a good holiday villa, is having that villa be in the right location for you. This might be a place by the beach, an apartment near local parks, or somewhere from where you can easily take in the local city sights.

It’s also important to think practically. For example, you might find it essential to be near shops and supermarkets, especially if you plan to cook a lot at home. On the other hand, maybe you’d prefer to stock up with a big shop and then enjoy your peaceful villa in a more secluded setting. Whatever your preference, Stay YNA have many options to pick from, so you’ll have no trouble finding a holiday villa in the location of your choice. 

Additionally, a good rented holiday villa should suit your individual needs. For example:

  • If you need a child-friendly place, you might want to find a place that can provide a highchair and a suitable cot or room for a child to sleep in.
  • If you want to spend a lot of time in the holiday rental, you might want to seek out a place that has a TV, DVDs, wi-fi, games consoles, and books or board games.
  • If your morning coffee is an essential part of your routine, you might want to check that you are located within walking distance to a good coffee shop or two. Maybe you’d even like to rent a villa where a coffee machine is provided.

Thankfully, all of our French holiday rentals clearly provide information about their amenities and location, so you can make a well-informed decision.

 

What holiday villas to rent in Nice do Stay YNA provide?

Being a specialist provider of holiday rental homes, Stay YNA have options for all types of tastes. Our Nice holiday villas include:

  • Villa Boron: A Vegas-style 5 bedroom villa that can sleep up to 12 people and comes with a jacuzzi and indoor pool.

Tailor made perfume! By Nice Stay YNA manager Claire Phillips

Have you every been in the perfume department or duty free shop and wished that there was a perfume tailor made for you? Perhaps you’ve dreamed of the lingering scent of jasmine, orange or vanilla but still can’t find the right one? Well if you’re holidaying on the Côte D’Azur this year, your dream perfume, made just for you, could come true!

Medieval town of Grasse

The medieval town of Grasse, situated 45kms from Nice, is the world-renowned centre for perfume. Amongst its old cobbled streets, you’ll find famous perfumeries such as Fragonard, Molinard, Galimard etc. Each company has a long history of perfume making in the town. The microclimate in this part of the French Riviera makes it an ideal location for growing the flowers needed to produce some of the oldest perfume recipes in the world.

You can attend your very own workshop!

On the outskirts of this beautiful town, the famous perfumeries run workshops at which you can make your very own bottle of scent. Some of our team headed to the Galimard workshop to see for ourselves why so many of our guests have enjoyed this activity during their stays.

Using an old-age method, your tutor will guide you through the 2 hour workshop, imparting many years of knowledge, to ensure your perfume is just how you want it.

So, how do you make your ideal perfume? You’ll work through the numerous individual scents, picking your base notes, your heart notes and your head notes to find the perfect perfume for you. Once chosen, you mix the scents to make a 100ml bottle of Eau de Perfum which you can take home.

At the Galimard workshop, your recipe will be retained so that you can order more if you would like to.

Some of the famous perfumes houses also offer free factory tours where you will learn about the history of perfume making in Grasse. We learnt that the perfumer (le nez or the nose) who developed Chanel No.5 for Coco Chanel, made 10 different scents, each in bottles carefully labelled from No. 1 to No. 10 and Mme Chanel preferred the one in the bottle No. 5!

The workshop is a great activity for couples, friends or family groups with children aged 8 and over.

Check out the workshop link here - https://www.galimard.com/en

Toiletries in ‘Your Nice Apartment’

In every Stay YNA apartment and villa you’ll find toiletries from the famous Grasse based Fragonard company to use during your stay. You can also visit their shop in Nice on the Cours Saleya.

You can drive to Grasse in just under 50 minutes from central Nice or via train from Nice Ville and then bus or a taxi/Uber to the workshop studios.
