Duinin Cottage Self-Catering


This impressive two-bedroom light filled modern cottage is stunningly located in one of the most enviable locations on the Dingle Peninsula. Undoubtedly the large panoramic window in the kitchen area that frames The Three Sisters Headland and the distant Blasket Islands must be the property’s most unmatched feature. Many a local artist has spent a lot of time and passion capturing this exact image. Other views from the house include Smerwick Harbour and the majestic Brandon Range. This area makes a great base for walks, beaches, hiking, music/language courses and it is not remote being only just 2kms to the local pub/restaurants in the very popular village of Ballydavid. Many guests that have stayed in this area have commented that the evening walk along the headland to the pub where they serve quality food and impromptu Irish music sessions was the highlight of their stay!


Accessed off a small hallway there is a large double bedroom with views to The Three Sisters and Brandon mountain range beyond and directly opposite this room there is a spacious twin room with views to the gorse filled countryside/hills that abound in the gardens at the rear of this special house.


There is one full family sized bathroom with a WC, hand basin, bathtub, heated towel rack and an ample walk in shower.    

Living Area

The living area is very well appointed, and the comfortable sofas are cosily positioned surrounding the functioning multi fuel burning stove. From this seating area one can still enjoy the breath-taking views in all directions! It is an ideal place to curl up and read that book you have saved for the holidays or enjoy a challenging card game. Asides from the warm stove there is also underfloor heating throughout this home, so the overall feeling is very snug indeed! There is a smart TV/Sky freeview TV channels in the living area and good internet connection throughout the house. Located just off the living room there is a storage area where one will find a very smart utility space for all of your needs/sports gear.

Kitchen/Dining Area

This modern cottage has a very open plan chic modern rustic styled kitchen with a deep Belfast sink, all modern appliances, a gas hob and electric fan oven. There is a dishwasher, washing machine, fridge, very sufficient cooking equipment and lovely feature local pottery for everyday use. The kitchen leads out to an ample porch and a rear small rustic styled south facing garden. 

The kitchen/dining area also encompasses a quiet reading corner, a feature antique wood table and four very comfortable director style leather chairs. Again, there are views directly from this dining area while you slowly begin your day to the sound of the sea crashing in Smerwick harbour and Duinin Pier directly opposite the cottage! 

Access/Outside Space

The property has just one entrance/exit area off the Slea Head Drive road with an open style hedge lined small parking area. There is easily enough room for two cars and more to the rear if required. There is a front area with a comfortable “Love Seat” on which to enjoy the evening sunset.
