Holiday Homes Dingle for a Spectacular New Year

If you fancy escaping in the New Year to recharge your batteries and start the year off refreshed and full of energy, then why not consider a break in our holiday homes Dingle Peninsula or the Iveragh Peninsula in Kerry, Ireland.

There is plenty to see and do in both the Dingle and Iveragh Peninsula and the local environments offer great places to get back to nature. By far the best way to explore the area and breathe in the spectacular natural scenery to be found here is to explore by foot.

The areas offer a wide range of gentle pursuits as well as more thrilling activities, so whether you fancy taking on a mountain climb, an interesting coastal boat trip or simply roam the many quaint little villages and towns to be found here, the Dingle and Iveragh Peninsula offer plenty of inspiration.

 Walking the Wild Atlantic Way

 There are plenty of walking and hiking routes to be found around the Dingle Peninsula and the area is especially well known for being a particularly spectacular part of the Wild Atlantic Way (WAW), Ireland’s famous coastal route that stretches a very lengthy 1600 miles (2600 km)

While the WAW is one of the worlds longest defined coastal routes in the world, winding its way along the entire West Coast of Ireland, it is the section of the walk that spans the Dingle Peninsula that attracts thousands of holidaymakers each year wanting to explore the wild and rugged coastline.

 Behind every hidden bend of the coastal path, you can find a treasure waiting to be discovered, whether it is one of the enchanting seaside villages along the coast or an ancient monument with a history buried in the depths of a time long forgotten.

 Walking The Dingle Peninsula WAW

 The Dingle Peninsula is lined with seemingly never-ending sandy beaches reaching from the north near Castlegregory to the south of the peninsula. Heading along the coastal path to Dingle town you walk over the Connor Pass, Ireland’s highest mountain pass.

 The path leads you along a very varied route that is quite narrow in places but always gives you some truly breathtaking views to take in and marvel at.

 This area is a true paradise for those who love walking and hiking because it delivers those willing to explore the route some of the most spectacular coastal and mountain scenery in the whole of Ireland.

 It is no wonder that the Dingle Peninsula attracts thousands of avid climbers, walkers and hikers from all over the world each year, yet despite its popularity remains largely unspoilt and wild.

 Fancy a more sedentary walk?

 If you don’t feel up to hiking the whole Dingle Peninsula section of the Wild Atlantic Way, then there are a variety of different walks available in the area that take in some of the splendour of the WAW without quite so much physical effort.

 There are gentle beach walks and sloping areas that can be explored along many of the internationally recognised waymarked routes. You can pick up self-guided walking maps from many local places and there are fully guided walks available where you can learn a lot of history about the area while taking in the sighs at a more leisurely pace.

 Many shorter walks take in many local villages as well as some very dramatic scenery offered along the Dingle Peninsula.

 The Dingle Way Walk

 We highly recommend that you take in at least one of the parts of the much larger Dingle Way walk during your stay in the area. It may well tempt you to return again very soon to take in another section of the walk, which at 176 km /109 miles long can take up to 7 or 8 days to complete if you were to attempt the whole walk end to end.

 The Dingle Way is a good walk to choose simply because it is very well serviced. A lot of the route is along tarmac roads which makes walking easy. You will pass through many picturesque villages where a wide selection of local food and drink will be available.

 Why not take a look at our range of holiday homes that are available in Dingle that you can book that sit on or very close to the trail. You can book a holiday home that is a mere stone’s throw away from the route.

 Holiday Homes Dingle

 Luckily, Stay YNA have a range of holiday homes situated along the Wild Atlantic Way that you can use as a very comfortable base for your walking holiday in Dingle.

 We offer good discounts for January especially if you want to book for more than a week or two, so a month’s rental is really cost-effective. This makes it even better value for money if you want to make the most of your time in Dingle.

 You can take a look at our wide range of amazing holiday homes situated in and around Dingle. We have something suitable for everyone no matter whether you fancy a solitary escape to blow away the cobwebs and recharge your batteries, or you have a very active family that need a breakaway to run wild and burn off some energy.

Iveragh Peninsula

As well as Dingle, the Iveragh Peninsula also has a range of walks and beautiful scenery to embrace if you choose to stay here. Iveragh is home to Carrantuohill, Ireland’s highest mountain, making it the backbone of County Kerry. With lands full of lakes, woodlands and sandy beaches, this is the perfect place for those who love to explore the outdoors. 

There are a large range of scenic walks to talk whilst staying in Iveragh Peninsula and also some beautiful locations within a short drive, such as Killarney, the Gap of Dunloe and Glencar, where you can go climbing if you’re brave enough!

As well as having beautiful scenery, this Peninsula also has heaps of history. You can visit the birthplace of “The Liberator” Daniel O’Connell in Cahersiveen as well as Derrynane House and National Historic Park.

Of course, to visit all of these places, you will need somewhere comfortable and cosy to retire to after a busy day exploring, that’s where we come in. Stay YNA have two holiday homes located in the Iveragh Peninsula. 

Our Inis home sleeps up to 8 people and combines elegance, comfort and space that is perfect for a big group of friends or family but also cosy enough for two of you who want a beautiful place to stay. 

Our Fisherman’s Rest home 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. 

Feel free to call our friendly team on +44 (0)203 397 7903 or email us at [email protected] if you would like to discuss your Dingle holiday accommodation needs.

Don’t forget about our special ‘January discount offers’! Do not hesitate to contact us to find out what special deal we can work out for your New Year break in Dingle.

Post-Christmas Holiday Lettings in Nice

It can be a fantastic tonic for your health and happiness to book a New Year getaway, especially if you are one of many that are feeling a bit tired and jaded after Christmas. Therefore it is important to choose the best destination in which to spend your holiday time, and holiday lettings from Stay YNA can help.

January in the UK can be hard work with short, cold days and long chilly nights. It is when most of us realise just how long we have to wait to see a bit of warm sunshine again.  So what could be better than to escape the grey cold weather and head to a beautiful spot such as Nice to recharge your batteries for a week or two!

Stay YNA have a superb range of beautiful holiday lettings in Nice for you to choose from. Nice is a popular destination for many UK holidaymakers, but if you want to avoid the crowds and really get to know the real Nice and its unique culture, then a January break is highly recommended.

Nice in January

Despite January being the coldest month in Nice, the average temperatures remain mild when compared to the UK and there is plenty of winter sunshine to be enjoyed.

January is also a great time of year to explore the city because it is less crowded and the beautiful beaches will be relitively empty too, making it a great time to visit Nice to relax and recharge your energy levels.

Temperatures average around 9°C, which is high enough to keep frosty weather at bay. However, by mid-day average temperatures sit around 13°C and above, providing you with a very pleasant and comfortable environment to walk around and explore.

While January is the coldest month in the UK, it certainly isn’t the wettest month of the year! Yes, it does rain in Nice during January, but the rainfall average is around 70mm and falls throughout the month in short, sharp downpours. Chances are if it does rain while you are there, you can dodge the worst of the showers by chilling in a cafe over a large cup of coffee until it passes.

Plenty of sunshine to enjoy

You can boost your Vitamin D levels and enjoy an average of 8 hours of sunshine per day during January. This will give you plenty of time to amble around the town and take in the sights and sounds this beautiful location has to offer.

Why not enjoy the sunshine to the maximum by booking one of Stay YNA’s holiday lettings with a balcony, such as the Gabrielle! The Gabrielle has a stunning view from the wraparound balcony too. Sit and gaze over terracotta rooftops, colourful streets and people watch as Niçoise life is laid out before you.

The location is central, with Nice on your doorstep just waiting to be explored. While it is surprisingly sunny in Nice during January, remember to pack a jumper as the evenings can get chilly.

Things to do in Nice in January

While most of the beaches in Nice are closed for water sports and other activities due to the lack of tourists, Blue Beach in Nice does remain open and offers several water-sport opportunities and there is plenty of beach and shores to stroll along to take in some winter sunshine and sea air.

Museum of Modern and Contemporary Art

Take a stroll around the Museum of Modern and Contemporary Art, showing an excellent timeline of Nice’s art history. With an eclectic mix of experimental art, New European Realism, and Pop Art, the museum also displays many works from famous local artists, such as Cesar, Klein, and Sosno.

The Cathedrale Saint Nicolas

The Cathedrale Saint Nicolas is a must-see local attraction in Nice. With a striking exterior of colourful domed turrets, it is a perfect example of traditional Russian Orthodox Church architecture. Inside it is just as stunning with a display of engravings that date from the early 20th Century. Please bear in mind that you will need to cover your feet, legs and shoulders when visiting.

Old Town Nice

Exploring Vieux Nice, or the Old Town, is an amazing experience. The old town plan is built on a serious of narrow, winding alleyways set between busy squares full of activity. The old town is packed full of fascinating independent local boutiques, cafes, confectionery shops selling traditional sweets and treats, and lots of small art galleries.

Why choose holiday lettings in Nice from Stay YNA?

Your holiday is a time that you should be able to enjoy to the full and to stay in accommodation that allows you the freedom of location, style and size of your choice. This is why taking a holiday letting in Nice from Stay YNA can give you all of this and to have a self-catering holiday where you can choose to eat in or go out to eat at a time that suits you.

You will have the freedom to choose how you spend your well-earned getaway time!

Superb and stylish Holiday Apartments in Nice

For those visiting Nice for the very first time, you will realise what a wonderful area of France it is and what you have been missing out on by not going before!

 There is no doubt that your choice of holiday accommodation is going to make a big impression of your experience in Nice and how you come to remember your stay in this region in the years to come.

 Creating your very best holiday memories

 When you are making holiday memories, you will want to make sure that your stay is as pleasurable as possible so you can remember the trip for the right reasons.

Your memories of your holiday in Nice will not only consist of your experiences while out and about exploring the sights, but will also include how comfortable and at home you felt in your accommodation during your stay.

 Why you should choose holiday apartments in Nice

There are so many reasons to choose to stay in a beautiful Stay YNA holiday apartment in Nice.

 For one thing, all of the holiday apartments in Nice that are registered with Stay YNA are all fully vetted and evaluated before we accept them onto our books. 

 We want only the very best holiday experience for you, so we need to know first-hand what your experience of staying in any of our listed holiday apartments will feel like.

 By doing this we can also learn a lot of useful information about your Nice apartment that can help boost the quality of your stay with us. This includes learning about how the heating, cooker and built-in appliances work, how far the local shops are from your apartment, which bus routes to pick up to get you into town etc.

 Nice apartments to suit your budget

 There can also be a desire for many holidaymakers to choose a luxury hotel in Nice because they think it would add to their comfort and give their holiday a bit more finesse. However, in reality choosing a luxury hotel can be prohibitively expensive, and quite often the experience is not anything like what they were expecting.

 The problem with most hotels is that every room is generic, even with an expensive luxury hotel, so you are not really getting a one-off, bespoke type of holiday experience.

 For a much better price, you could instead choose to stay in a truly unique, one-off, comfortable and very smart holiday apartment in Nice. You will then free up some very useful extra spending money that will enable you to create even more special holiday memories.

 The many advantages of choosing from Stay YNA holiday apartments in Nice: 

1: Better value for money than a hotel: You can allow yourself a wonderful stay in Nice with some extra spending money saved from your accommodation expenditure.

 2: Privacy and freedom: With most hotels, you need to vacate your room so that staff can perform their housekeeping duties. You are also usually tightly constrained to eating breakfast or other meals at certain times. With a holiday apartment, you will be free to come and go as you please and eat what you want, when you want.

 3: Dedicated customer service: When you book a Stay YNA holiday apartment in Nice, you will have access to our dedicated, personal customer service. You can contact us at any time for our help and support and you will always deal with the same person. We can anticipate your needs and not just respond to them because we have been exactly where you are right now.

 4: A peaceful night’s sleep: With a Stay YNA holiday apartment in Nice you will be ensured of getting a restful night’s sleep. We make sure you won’t be sleeping on a rock-hard mattress or by being stuck in a room next to a noisy lift that is being called all night long as is the case with some hotels.

 5: Flexible arrival/departure dates: As Stay YNA charge per night, it doesn’t matter whether you plan to stay for a week, ten nights or anything in between, you can arrive or leave any day of the week. As long as your chosen holiday apartment is free on the dates that you want, we are happy to take your booking and arrange your stay. However, we like to encourage our guests to make the most of their valuable holiday time by offering flexible rates where the longer you plan to stay, the less you will pay per night.

 The superior experience of holiday apartments in Nice

 There is no denying that you will get a much more superior holiday experience when you choose a Stay YNA holiday apartment in Nice. Our holiday accommodation is much better than having to rough it in a cheap and unfriendly budget hotel and offers far more comfort and luxury.

 What makes our range of holiday apartments in Nice is the fact that each one is unique. This means that once you have fallen in love with Nice and plan to return in the future, each time you re-book with us you can choose a completely different apartment to stay in Nice.

 By varying your holiday accommodation in this way you can experience staying in different neighbourhoods in Nice and have access to areas that you never explored before.

 When you are looking for a memorable stay for your next holiday in Nice, do not hesitate to book one of our unique Nice holiday apartments. You can find out more about staying in one of our Luxury Nice apartments, or you can get in touch with us to answer any questions you may have.

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…

You can enjoy a cozy family Christmas in one of our five star luxury homes! 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?
