It has some of the most scenic views across Balinskelligs Bay. CLEANING service available on request. Ballinskelligs is renowned for its miles of golden beaches (Blue Flag Award) and turquoise water. The area has its own Irish College, where children come in summer to learn the Irish Language. The area has a unique history and culture and was the mainland connection for the monks that lived on Skellig Michael.

The Blue Flag Beach, where the 16th Century Castle of the McCarthy Mór was built to protect the bay from pirates, is a few minutes walk from Dún Geagáin and is spectacular in fine weather but also makes for a beautiful setting for walking or some quiet thought on a blustery day. The village of Dungegan is typical of most rural Irish villages. Village life is centred on the local shops and pubs in the evenings, where you can enjoy traditional Irish music and dancing.

It is is easily accessible through Cork and Kerry airports and 1 hour drive from Killarney train station. 1 hour drive from Kerry Airport (Direct flights with Ryan Air from Dublin, London Luton & Stansted and Frankfurt Hahn)and 10 minutes drive from Cahirciveen and Waterville.

At the rear of the house is a lawn and secluded patio area with BBQ & wooden garden furniture, it overlooks the expanse of the Bay and there is an extensive 1/3 acre landscaped garden at the front of the property which is landscaped has a dry stone wall & Ranch style wooden gate at the entrance. There is a large parking area for several cars. A gardener attends regularly to the lawn & front garden.

For the wet or lazy days there are plenty of distractions in the house to keep you amused including satellite television, dozens of DVDs and books, X-box and games, giant bowling and numerous board games. There is a real open fire in the sittingroom.

For infants, there is a travel cot, stroller, high chair, baby bowls, beakers & baby cutlery.

Some of the nearby lakes and beaches attract anglers from all over Europe and there are fishing rods and tackle for use by anyone interested. Ballinskelligs Watersports is locally based & hires kayaks, boats and windsurfing. , scuba diving can be done also. Local areas of interest include Valentia Island, Knightstown-Cahirciveen Ferry, Glanleam House Sub Tropical Gardens, Skellig Rocks Boat Trips, St Finians Bay (Surfing), Waterville & Skelligs Golf Courses, Port Magee Village, Waterville Lake Fishing, Sailing and Kayaking, Ciall Rialaig Artist Retreat and Skelligs Chocolate Factory. Beautiful walks, cycles and drives. Award winning seafood restaurants within 10 minutes drive.

A highlight is a boat trip from the local pier to the stunning Skellig Michael (http://www.skelligboats.com).Skellig Rock

A must see as you are in the area. The Skellig rocks, which are located 12kms off the coast of Kerry, are of such an importance that they have been made a World Heritage Site. When you first see The Skelligs you wonder how or why anyone would live on such a remote rock in the middle of The Atlantic Ocean, when you visit and stand on the site of the monastery and Experience the Skelligs then you begin to understand.

Waterville is just 10 minutes drive The late Henry Cotton, three times British Open Champion, probably said it best when he commented: "Waterville has to be one of the greatest golf courses ever built. If it were located in Britain, it would undoubtedly be a venue for the British Open. I have never seen a more consistent

succession of really strong and beautiful golf holes than here."

Another jewel in the crown is Dooks. The golf course is laid out on one of three stretches of sand dunes at the head of Dingle Bay. In the immediate foreground are the dune peninsulas of Rossbeigh and Inch, while just a few short miles away, the whitewashed houses of Cromane fishing village provide another eye catching distraction. To the southeast are the famed peaks of McGillycuddy Reeks, while looking northwards across the bay; one can see Slieve Mish and the Dingle mountains dominate the landscape. Dooks offers the visitor a unique links experience in a majestic setting and is perfectly suited to the golfer seeking a tranquil environment in which to enjoy a superb golf course. The par 3, 13th hole, measuring 150 yards, probably best represents the charm and magic that is inherent at Dooks.

Other nearby activities include cycling, walking, horse riding, fishing, diving, windsurfing,& many other watersports.

It is minutes walk from the Ballinskelligs Inn and Rosie's Tavern

The house is located behind the Cill Rialaig Arts centre, which was built resembling an ancient stone fort and hosts numerous exhibitions painted by international artists residing in the nearby restored famine village retreat. During the summer it runs childrens art classes.

The house is located in the Gaelteacht and the local Dungeagan school runs week-long Irish activities for children.

Rates from €550 per week low season to €950 high season. Bed linen & towels supplied. Electricity & heating included in the price. It is a place that will warm your heart and offers the extra special comfort of a beautiful permanent home. No smoking in house please.

"lovely spacious house, fantastic location."

We stayed here with young children last year and had a wonderful holiday. Firstly the pictures really don't do the place justice, it is such a large beautiful house with stunning views across the bay, there's a great garden for children to play in (again with great views) and everything, including bbq is provided for. Location is excellent too, a few mins walk to the gorgeous beach and a few mins walk to the pub, and a great base for exploring the ring of Kerry. The art centre is a very short walk and well worth a visit. For rainy days there's lots indoors to entertain, and a lovely open fire for the evenings. All in all we would thoroughly recommend.

"Magical house - with stunning views."

We were 4 adults and 4 children and this house was perfect for us. There was plenty of space with 2 sitting rooms, 3 bathrooms and 4 bedrooms and well-equipped kitchen.
The house is in a great location with amazing views overlooking Ballinskelligs beach/bay, which made a fantastic backdrop to our evening bbqs on the patio. There was a wonderful cafe open for lunch in the Cil Riliag Arts center, which is walking distance from the house, and the food was great.
There was plenty to do, great restaurants and beautiful beaches. We made a trip to the Skellig Islands and would highly recommend this if you get the chance.
The owner Leesha was very helpful and efficient.
We will be back.

Thanks for your review. As you said there is so much room in the house it is a home from home but maybe a bit bigger. We try to have all the equipment that one has at home. It does enable one to cook indoors or outdoors with the BBQ. The watersports are excellent for all the family and for those into golf there is a choice of courses.

"Sea views and Jamesons!"

My husband & I truly enjoyed our Irish adventure, the cottage is in a superb location overlooking the sea and Ballinskelligs bay, the views were breathtaking. The cottage was well equipped, had all the amenities needed and felt very much like home. Leesha, whom we rented the cottage from was very organised, efficient and answered all of our questions with speed. There was so much to see and do around the area and we found that the ring of Kerry really did live up to name of being one of the most scenic places to visit in the world. I would always recommend visiting Ireland and if you are going to do it, then this would be the best place to start!

Thank you for your review. It is great to hear how people enjoyed their stay with so much outdoor activities in the area there is everything even though the weather is not as hot as is in your country.
