'Allow yourself to be enchanted by Corca Dhuibhne (West Kerry),a land of stunning impressive mountains, spectacular coastline and sandy beaches.

Spend time in a place rich in tradition, literature and culture, where our native Irish language prospers but most of all spend time in a beautiful house where you can marvel at the splendour of its surroundings with every modern convenience the house offers privacy and comfort.

There is few places in the world that will thoroughly take your breath away as the view from inside or outside or on the patio of the cottage overlooking Clogher Beach /Sybhil Head and the 3 high points called the 3 sisters /mountains and the vast Atlantic Ocean,,, the most photographed point of the most scenic of drives .the home is only 20minute drive from idilic Dingle town

This is no ordinary cottage, quite apart from breath-taking views from every windows,the house is utterly delightful and comfortable with oil fired central heating,wooden floors and subtle decor which sets the tone in this tranquil hideaway. Situated right at the heart of what

National Geographic calls it 'the Most Beautiful Place on Earth .The spectacular views of the rugged cliffs which make up the coastline can be seen from every window of the house.

It overlooks Clochar Beach, Sybil head,The Three Sisters, Mount Brandon,Smerwick Harbour..It inspired classic films such as David Leans 'Ryan's Daughter' Tom Cruise/Nicole Kidman epic 'Far and Away'.

Situated on the Panoramic Slea Head drive and the Dingle Way,10Km from the quaint fishing town of Dingle, Golf links, horse riding,hill walking, and beautiful safe sandy beaches close by.

Sheep graze the lush land around the Stone House.

You can walk through the fields attached to the house and feel the freedom of living in the country also you can walk to the cliffs through the fields and sit on the stone wall and watch the waves and the ocean and the surrounding hills and cliffs and feel the peace and tranquility seep through your body!!

The house is probably the best situated on the dingle peninsula with views that awe-inspiring, the pictures that accompany this sight are all the the views you will experience from you visit.

About philomena

I was born hear and my first language was Irish I Came from a large family of 8 kids. I became a nurse where I traveled to England for work in my younger days but my heart never left home, I returned where myself and my husband Alec reared our family.

philomena purchased this cottage in 2006

Why philomena chose Dingle

Alec and I build the house as we wanted to share this piece of Heaven with our guests . Never have i grown tired of the view or even seen a place to equal the place that i call home.

Within a few minutes walk you are on the magical beach of clogher which you see from the cottage or Cuis Na Naon where generations of my family have fished from to rear there big family.

What makes this cottage unique

The view/Peace/Tranquility/Walks or Tracks and simple life... come and see for yourself!!

Home away from home at one of the most beautiful places on earth!

  • 5 of 5

Dear Philomena,

Our family stayed in your beautiful Stone House on the Dingle Peninsula May 20-26, 2018. Our time there will remain one of our most treasured memories. Your home is so warm, comfortable, and inviting and is meticulously maintained. The breathtaking views overlooking the cliffs and water, however, make it one of a kind. We altered our plans to allow ourselves more time to spend near the house walking the beach, and cliffs. We enjoyed waking to stunningly, beautiful mornings, and dining several times at home so we could relax and take in the beauty of Ireland. We didn’t have to travel each day to find the best view - we were already there! And with Dingle town only 20 minutes away, we took in the fantastic local music and pubs quite a bit as well. We can’t wait for our next return trip. Thank you, Philomena!

One of most beautiful places I've ever stayed!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I recently rented both of the wonderful stone cottages owned by Philomena on the Dingle Peninsula to celebrate our 30th anniversary. We had five other couples with us and we were all more than comfortable with enough bedrooms and bathrooms for everyone. The cottages were clean and inviting and had ample cookware and coffee makers and were equipped with wifi and puzzles to help entertain us when we weren't out enjoying the countryside. Now...to the main attraction, I can't say enough about how beautiful the view was from our cottage. The location could not have been more ideal for hiking, biking and simply enjoying the amazing scenery. The cottage is literally right across from the Sybil Head peak and the Three Sisters peaks. Most people spend a good portion of their vacation in Ireland trying to find the type of view that we woke up to every morning. Not only was the view incredible, but each morning the bleating of the new lambs came through our open window, which was heaven for this city girl. If it is at all possible, I will go back and will stay in exactly the same place. Philomena and her daughter Sharon were warm and welcoming and made wonderful recommendations for places to eat and local pubs to visit. The village of Ballyferriter was close by with a few cute pubs and a small grocery store. Trip into Dingle was a short drive and was fun for shopping and dining. The stone cottages will remain one of my favorite vacations spots for a very long time and I hope I have the opportunity to see them again!

Heaven on Earth!!

  • 5 of 5

I was tempted to write a sour review only to keep the place to ourselves, but truth is, we all need to share the beauty and wonderment of God's grace which can be found sitting in living room overlooking Clogher Beach and the three sisters. The hikes are magnificent and Dingle is not too far off! Philomena is the caretaker from heaven. She is also guardian angel of the roads there..sweet talk her and you may get ride to Dingle and Back!!

Delightful

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed a relaxing time at the stone cottage, taking in the changing views and enjoying the peacefulness of the area. The house had all the little essential things that one often would forget to bring or take for granted at home.

We had an Irish breakfast every morning, a little exploring by day and a turf fire by night. We watched Ryan’s Daughter on the DVD player and then later explored some of the areas in the film like around the house and further afield like Inch beach. We discovered lots of little beaches and quite a few cosy pubs. The walk near Clogher beach that loops around the head was enjoyable and quite manageable. The walk in the opposite direction was a little more rugged, but good fun all the same. It was reassuring to know that if we needed anything Phil, Sharon and Alec were very approachable and close by. Thank you for such a lovely stay.
