The spacious country kitchen is fully equipped with everything you need to enjoy your cooking and dining experience. In the dining area, the farmhouse kitchen table comfortably seats 8-10 and the patio doors conveniently open out onto the deck where you can enjoy the sea and mountain views as you barbeque. If you like to dine outside, surrounded by the sights and sounds of nature, there are further chairs and table on the deck.

Relax in the lounge listening to music or reading a book from the book/CD collection, watch TV or browse the net through the wi-fi. The additional separate TV room adds to your enjoyment with its widescreen HD Television, Satellite channels and great selection of DVD movies to choose from.

You can amble around town enjoying the unique shops, galleries and bookshops or enjoy the atmosphere around the marina. Experience great traditional irish music being played live in many of its bars by some of Irelands top musicians!

There is so much to see and do here in Dingle. The wonderful Dingle Wildlife and Seal Sanctuary is just down the road, complete with a lovely lakeside tea room/cafe (with great food) and children’s play area. Oceanworld aqaurium is also great for nature lovers too. Experience the numerous outdoor activities such as walking, diving, surfing, fishing, climbing, boating, swimming, horse-riding, golfing, hiking, bowling, boat-tours to the blasket islands, eco-tours, exploring historical archeological sites, to mention but a few.

Enjoy your vacation in this super comfortable home, in an area that was cited as 'the most beautiful place on earth' by the National Geographic and has been featured in many films like 'Ryans Daughter' (Robert Mitchum) and 'Far and Away' (Cruise/Kidman), for its dramatic and beautiful scenery. It was voted among the top 100 destinations in the world; CNN recently recommended it as a very favourable winter destination; it is listed as one of the top 10 places to be on New Year's Eve - all of these accolades refer to the stunningly beautiful Dingle Peninsula.

Enjoy boat trips out to the Blasket Islands, eco tours or a trip to see ‘Fungi’ the famous local wild dolphin who has adopted Dingle Bay as his home for many years. Trips can be booked to swim with Fungi too!

Whether you want an action packed vacation or one of peace and tranquillity, surrounded by breathtaking scenery, then this house near Dingle is perfect for you to enjoy it all!

About Niamh

Hi! I'm Niamh and I'm Irish. Myself and my husband Frank built this dream home here in our favorite part of Ireland, after visiting the area for many years. We feel so lucky to own this wonderful home by the sea in such a truly magical place! We love being in Dingle!

Niamh purchased this house in 2007

Why Niamh chose County Kerry

It is a luxury house next to a stunningly beautiful quiet beach. It has amazing 360 degree views and a big private garden. The wonderful 'Dingle Wildlife and Seal Sanctuary' (with cafe/lakeside seating) is just down the road and the house is very close to Dingle. Dingle is an amazing place! This area has it ALL: Ocean, stunning beaches, mountains, lakes, rivers, islands and a vibrant town. Wonderful restaurants, bars and great music too. So much to see and do here, it caters to all tastes and ages.

What makes this house unique

The name of our house is 'Didean' (in Irish) which means Haven and it truly is that! Its only a 2 minute stroll to the most beautiful secluded beach, 1.5 miles to the Wonderful 'Dingle Wildlife and Seal Sanctuary' and only 7 minutes drive to the magical town of Dingle, with all it's shops, restaurants, bars and special attractions!

Guestbook comments from the owner

Our family had a wonderful week at Didean! Thank you for providing us with such a beautiful home base for exploring Dingle! We hope to visit again soon!

Wish we could have stayed forever

  • 5 of 5

Cannot begin to adequately express how perfect Niamh and Frank's house was for our family vacation. There were 12 of us. Two of our children and their spouses and six of our grandchildren. We enjoyed this wonderful spot the first week in August, and it was amazing. The boys cooked huge breakfasts every morning in the wonderful kitchen and everyone then took off exploring. The beach down the road (accompanied by Monster, the dog from across the street), the climb up the mountain behind the house. Dingle, Slea Head, Ballyferriter, Inch Beach, castles and ruins, even golf for 8 of us one day. Loved being in the farm area surrounded by sheep and cows (even enjoyed the "traffic jam" occasionally while waiting for the cows to pass!). Evenings were spent around the table playing cards and games, and most nights the kids took over the upstairs lounge area watching movies and playing Wii. A huge thank you to Frank and Niamh. You have a beautiful spot here, and we had a memorable and fantastic family week enjoying beautiful Ireland and its wonderful people.

A Beautiful Last Visit to Dingle

  • 5 of 5

Getting too old to travel, but wanted to show children and grandchildren one of my favorite places on earth. We stayed in this beautiful house that was replete with every convenience and glorious views...all we could have desired. We visited every ancient site in the area, hiked up hills, fished in Dingle Bay and returned to the comforts provided by the kind and helpful owners....this will always be part of my best memories of Ireland.

Simply wild, humbly free

  • 5 of 5

We flew from the States and then drove across the country to get to this rustic piece of land and sea. Encompassed in the serenity of the green, we were relaxed and happy. But once we turned onto the Wild Atlantic Way, we felt a certain excitement. The foxgloves and wildflowers along the walls led us to the Cinn Aird road and everything stood still- vibrating in a free space that allows all to breathe. I'd vote this the most relaxing place on earth.

We arrived late so had to go looking in Dingle Town for dinner. We landed at John Benny's where they made us feel so welcome and cozy on a tapestried bench with locals, a fish curry, mussels, roast/ veg/ mashers for the kids. A woman with her squeeze box and a man with a guitar and stories played just feet away while we ate. Later in the week we attended a more formal folk concert at St. James that's not to be missed. We also enjoyed Chowder, Ashe's, The Goat Street Social Club, and all the wool shops before we left.

The morning we awoke, we watched a fox spring over the hills with birds squawking around her. She came all the way to the yard and stared at us, as sure a welcome as any stranger'd expect. We cooked and enjoyed many meals in the great kitchen at the house, found quiet moments in the beautifully lit front room. The bedrooms were quiet and comfy. There's so much space to be together but enjoy moments alone, too.

The walk from Didean to the beach delighted and enchanted us. All the colors surprised us, especially in the subdued and misty rain (purple-pink foxgloves, small yellow flowers and white, the rocks in lavender and rose and greys, the turquoise sea and blue skies, the emerald green all around!). We took another walk to a lighthouse and castle ruins along some cliffs nearby. The Slea Head Drive and short hike to Peddler's Lake at Conor Pass were refreshing!

We took a few road trips crossing the country over our 2 week stay and were always relieved to come back to this quiet, homey spot.

Frank and Niamh were patient with our big group and very efficient and helpful communicating, but did not hover. We are simply grateful they shared this glimpse of peace with us.

A wonderful home in a perfect location

  • 5 of 5

We selected this home for a family holiday to celebrate our 50th wedding anniversary. The home was perfect for our family and the location could not have been better. It was so convenient to return to "our house" after spending the day enjoying country walks, scenic drives and exploring Dingle. A great holiday.
