The property

Dingle 7.5 miles. This is a wonderfully charming, traditional, detached cottage, located in the rural townland of Ballinknockane, at the foot of Mount Brandon, 7.5 miles from the lively tourist town of Dingle, County Kerry. Dating back around 200 years, this Dingle holiday cottage has been lovingly refurbished to offer superb holiday accommodation, whilst still maintaining its superb original character. Not only will you be excited as you approach your lovely, old stone holiday cottage, in its wonderful, rural location, but once you enter and take in the fabulous exposed beams and exposed stonework throughout, you'll know you've picked the right place for a country cottage holiday in County Kerry. The sitting room has a real, traditional charm with a warming woodburning stove nestled in a beautiful stone fireplace. Imagine coming back to your Dingle cottage after a day exploring the lovely nearby beaches and surrounding countryside, and snuggling up with a glass of wine in front of the cosy fire, chatting about the day's highlights and planning the next day's activities. There is plenty to choose from: visit Dingle 7.5 miles away with its lovely bay and harbour, along with a host of shops, pubs and restaurants. Alternatively enjoy great walking, cycling and fishing in the surrounding countryside or take a day trip to Killarney National Park or along the scenic Ring of Kerry. At the end of the day return to your welcoming Dingle cottage, perhaps taking advantage of your attractive, well-equipped kitchen to cook a meal for your guests. Sit together in the open plan dining area and enjoy a meal all together, a real social experience. On a summer's evening you might choose to sit out in the garden and enjoy your favourite tipple as you take in the simply wonderful sea and mountain views, which surround your Dingle holiday home. A great base for a cottage holiday in County Kerry.
