The Dingle Peninsula region
Kerry is probably the most popular destination in Ireland.The sheer wild beauty of its mountainous terrain and coastline, combined with its fascinating history and archaeology make it a 'must visit' destination. Killarney, with its lakes, castles and surrounding mountains, Dingle, with its quaint harbour and array of small shops, pubs and restaurants and the county town, Tralee. with its internationally famous Rose of Tralee festival, racecourse and numerous shops and pubs are all no more than a 30 min drive from Annie's Cottage.
If you like walking, rambling or climbing, you are bang in the centre of Ireland's premiere mountain scenery with the highest five peaks all within reach for a day's climb (and down again!). There are also the Kerry way and the Dingle Way, two of Europe's most spectacular waymarked walking routes.
And, if you need something for the children to do, there are miles of white sandy beaches with not too many people on them where shells, driftwood, starfish and all manner of other items can be found. Surfing is also an increasingly popular activity on this part of the Dingle Peninsular, with Inch beach (only 5 miles away) a major venue.
Music, craft and culinary festivals frequently populate the calendar and there is rarely a weekend without something of interest happening locally. If the weather is fine, there are numerous outdoor activities to pursue. If not, there is the Aquadrome in Tralee, the climbing centre in Dingle, various indoor Horse riding centres and of course a plethora of pubs and restaurants to visit.

"Excellent stay in River Cottage"
In the Christmas week we stayed at the River Cottage. Nice and cossy cottage, we loved the fire place, and make a fire every evening. The big kitchen with the oven was great, warm bread in the morning… More

We are a family of four with two young children (and a dog!) who enjoyed a great week in Annies Cottage. We found it a great base for touring Kerry and getting to Dingle, Tralee and Killarney. Bensons shop is only a few minutes away so while you are in a rural area, all the basics are close to hand. The cottage itself had everything we needed and was very cosy. It was really easy to keep clean and is a lot more spacious inside than it looks from outside. On a rainy winters day it was actually lovely to sit inside and watch the changing landscape of the mountains. I would definitely reccommend it to small families who enjoy a rural peaceful and quiet environment on their holidays.

"A true gem"
My fiancee and I had the pleasure of staying in this idyllic location where we were made feel at home from the moment we arrived. Our hosts were friendly and helpful, providing us with extensive knowledge of what we could do in the area.
The cottage is situated with stunning views of the surrounding countryside, overlooked on one side by beautiful mountains and with a breathtaking view down to the sea. A walk to the local shop provided us with all we needed for meals and the stunning views at Inch Beach, only five minutes drive away, left us with a sheer love for the Dingle Peninsula.
With excellent restaurants and traditional pubs within minutes, a drive to Dingle town only 25 minutes and a fully equipped kitchen etc, we had the perfect balance of blissful solitude, Irish hospitality and 'craic'!

"A gem on the Dingle Peninsula"
Staying in Annie's Cottage was a last minute decision for us on our journey around Ireland. We loved the look of the place, and on arrival the cottage exceeded all our expectations. Extremely well equipped, warm, very comfortable and homely, our stay was a joy throughout. Annie's is a perfect base to explore the peninsula and beyond, there is so much to see and do. The owners were extremely helpful, from the simple booking process, the welcome on arrival and providing advice about the area. If we return to Ireland, we will definately return to Annie's Cottage.......and say hello to the owners Donkeys!
