Guest Reviews


    • “Lovely, relaxing stay”
    • tripadvisor rating
    • “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.”

    • “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.”

    Mrs Rogers, DENBIGH, August 2015

    • “A very comfortable spacious family home in a lovely location.”

    Mr Lynch, February 2015

    • “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.”

About the location


Dunquin 5 miles; Dingle 7 miles; Inch 22 miles.

The pretty village of Ballyferriter nestles quietly near the tip of the Dingle Peninsula in County Kerry. Home to a selection of local facilities including pubs, a shop, and a small hotel, and flanked by towering mountains, rugged coastlines and sandy beaches, this traditional Irish village is the perfect base for those wishing to relax, or to explore the great outdoors. Ballyferriter is also one of Ireland's most prominent Gaeltacht villages, where the traditional Gaelic language is widely spoken amongst the local residents, giving visitors a truly immersive experience, and exposure to this ancient culture. The natural surroundings will enrapture visitors, with the magnificent Blasket Islands only a short boat ride away, and Mount Brandon - the second tallest mountain in the country and a great challenge for avid walkers - also close by. Be sure to visit the nearby town of Dingle; with an unrivalled selection of Irish pubs, shops and visitor attractions, and a harbour full of boats offering excursions and fishing trips, it is one of the most popular destinations in the west of Ireland.
