This house is just superb.. .. Idyllic location and an absolutely stunning property. It was so clean and well presented this is our second time staying at this property and loved it just as much as the first time. Simply gorgeous.
Maison spacieuse.. Au calme, bien située pour visiter la Péninsule de Dingle.
Nous avons réservé avec Booking.com. Du coup pas de numéro de la propriétaire impossible de la joindre pour savoir comment récupérer les clefs et vous n’avez jamais répondu à nos appels. Nous avons trouvé la maison grâce à Google Maps

A lovely location and spacious property.. Massive bonus to have 4 bathrooms. Very comfortable living area but could be enhanced with the addition of a television downstairs in living area. Also the addition of Wi-fi would be a massive bonus to an otherwise lovely property.
This is honestly one of the best places I have ever stayed in... and there have been many.
We did a road trip at the end of 2016 and booked this house for New Years with a couple of days before and after - and we couldn't have chosen better. Although we struggled to find it at first (it was pitch black and raining) we eventually got there with the help of the owner of the Post Office/Shop just down the road.
The house is perfect! Plenty of space, and each room has an en suite, spacious kitchen, great space outside and a cosy lounge with a fire place - they even got us some things to the light the first fire or 2!
We took New Years day to warm up in front of the fire after the NY swim and cook a meal. There were 9 of us and there was plenty space for everyone!
The little town of Ballyferriter is very near so we did a little pub crawl with the 4 pubs that are on the main road there - they all have a great atmosphere with traditional music and a good few pints. Even better coming home on the clear night and seeing all the stars in the sky - bright as day - this place is pretty spectacular.
Its a short drive into Dingle but close enough and the owner is always available - we had a little issue with the hot water but it was sorted straight away.
I would recommend this place to anyone and Im sure we will definitely be booking it on our next road trip!
One for the books!
House was perfect for our needs and family! Enjoyed the privacy and all the comfort and amenities that the property afforded us!
We had a fabulous and happy time in Dingle and can not wait to return.
Great area close to Dingle yet far enough àway to be out of the crowd..
Responsive hostess who pooped in with a couple of things as needed through the week.. Lovely spacious cottage. Well equipped. Wet room particularly helpful for washing down wet suits after surfing. Wifi and or UK TV channels would have been great although perhaps we would have seen less of the area and just watched more of the Olympics!
The house was ideal for a large group. There was plenty of space for everyone and ideal showering/bathing facilities, as well as a large garden. It was in a quiet area.
We stayed at the Architect House at the end of June/early July 2015. The house was just as it was pictured on the site. I was traveling with my family and my parents (6 people total). There was plenty of space for everyone. The kitchen was absolutely beautiful. We really enjoyed that it was located outside the busy Dingle area, yet still very convenient to the area.
We were staying in Ballyferriter since our ancestors lived there prior to coming to the US. We found everyone was very nice and helpful. They helped us find the location of the church that they attended (which happened to be walking distance from the Architect House).
It would be helpful if the house had WiFi and an updated TV. However, it was clear in the listing that the house did not have WiFi. And besides, we were in Ireland to see the beautiful country, not to sit in front of a computer or TV.
A very comfortable spacious family home in a lovely location.
Liked the space and the layout of the rooms particularly that the TV room is separate and that the kitchen is the centre of attention downstairs. The house is very warm and cosy and generously supplied with basic requirements. It was perfect.
This is one of the best places to visit, not just in Ireland but on the planet.
The house is spacious, tidy, quiet, frankly faultless. Am I going back soon? Yes
