The cottage is ideally located for exploring the stunning Dingle Peninsula.. Dingle is conveniently only a 5 minute drive away. Driving on the Irish country roads is an experience in itself! It is recommended that you go clockwise round the Slea Head Drive for good reason. Passing places are few and far between and most traffic, including coaches, goes in that direction. The cottage itself is a bit rustic, but very homely.
Had a wonderful week in the Dingle peninsular, cottage ideally situated to explore.. Dingle town music scene was compared to Nashville by some American visitors, music everywhere and absolutely brilliant.
Cottage is lovely, comfortable, with everything you could possibly need, beautiful art work and we felt really at home there. Owner was contactable if needed.
Wonderful spot..close to town yet far enough away to be very quiet. The kitchen was fabulous..,had everything any cook could need. The cottage was clean and when the stove was lit the place got warm very quickly and stayed warm for hours. There were two things I think need to be addressed: 1. The couch: it's old and dirty. I threw a quilt over it. 2. There are no shades in the windows on the ground floor. (Except for in the bathroom). As there's a caravan park down the lane there are cars and people going by day and night..,I was uncomfortable with the fact that anyone could be looking in. I was alone so not having more privacy freaked me out a bit BUT I would definately come back and hope shades will be installed. It's a delightful cottage!
Lovely cottage in a beautiful setting Mick the owner was a gentleman..
Excellent house in an excellent location.. The owners have clearly put a lot of time and thought into making this as homely as possible. Top marks to them.
A real home from home.. This cottage had everything we needed and more!
Lovely cosy cottage.. Good base for exploring the Dingle peninsula, located just off the Slea Head drive between Dingle and Ventry. Very quiet when we stayed at the end of October.
This is a beautiful cottage and we would love to return

We had a lovely holiday here in August 2014.
The cottage has everything you require for a very comfortable stay, and is a lovely home from home
Dingle is a lovely picturesque town with lots to do. I highly recommend the Slea Head drive, the Fungie Dolphin trip and Murphys ice-cream is heavenly. Overall we had a fantastic trip :)
and if I was to ever go back to Dingle, I would stay in Brosnans Cottage again.

We had a wonderful time when we stayed in Brosnan's Cottage. It was a relaxing home away from home, with the added advantage of being in such an amazing location.

We liked this old cottage with the special cosy atmosphere, sitting in the evening beside the fireplace.. We also liked, that the house is in a peaceful location.
This was our second year in Brosnan's Cottage, we love everything about it, from the sea view to the wood burner and amazing deep bath for relaxing in, it's the perfect home from home. The location is great too, perfect for getting out and exploring! Definitely the best holiday house we've stayed in, cant wait to book it for next year!
As a group of friends we head away around this time every year. We were looking for a place to get away from it all for a few days and reset the batteries. A few beers, good food and go for a few walks. This cottage is very well suited, just outside Dingle and Ventry. Mike is very accommodating and has the place very well set up. The cottage is warm and has plenty of space. The bedrooms are very comfortable and everything is supplied. We are going to stay here again after the summer, would highly recommend the place.
Warm welcoming cosy would highly recommend to others well stocked and spotless. Flexibility around dates much appreciated. Thanks

We spent two weeks in this delightful & beautifully appointed holiday cottage. To come back after a days walking & wallow,neck deep in the huge bath tub & then to toast in front of the wood-burner followed by a great night's sleep in the comfy beds was bliss.
As well as being so comfy & cosy the cottage is a great base to explore all that the Dingle Peninsular has to offer.
I would happily recommend Brosnan's Cottage as a great place to have a 'get away from it all' break.
I stay in this cottage for one week with my family. Unfortunately we had a little storm for three day , even though it s part of the irish charm, but sincerely, this cottage is a little nest. Very well isolated, cosy and suit totally to the idea of "irish cottage' The landlords are very nice, helpful and friendly. Everything is provided to enjoy your stay with a map and list of everything you can do on the peninsula. Not mention that dingle is really enjoyable for a night out with music and good craic, It seem that the inhabitant are a big family, lovely and kind. I strongly recommend this place, the value is definitely amazing. A real little gem.

We spent 1 week in January 2013 in Brosnan Lodge. It has all mod cons but has all the character of a old style home. Very warm and comfortable bedrooms, house very well kept. Huge bath in the downstairs bathroom. Close to beach but not suitable for a buggy. Highly recommend and will stay again.
