  • "We had a lovely stay."

    The pictures on the site do not do justice to quite how lovely the location is and the view from the cottage. Stunning view of sea and coast everchanging with the light. We were very comfortable, with kitchen to cook good meals. Great starting point for Mount Brandon walks. We got information promptly when required from owners. Would be happy to stay there again and to recommend Stone Cottage. Only one pub/restaurant but good and within walking distance. Excellent. Thanks!

    Thanyou for the feedback, we are glad that you enjoyed your stay and hope to see you again. Jim and Angela. Property Owner

    The views are spellbinding. Really cosy, comfortable well equipped cottage with spacious airy bedrooms, comfy beds, lovely bedding & bath towels. A perfect base for The Dingle Way & the other wonderful sites on the Dingle Peninsula. Angela & Jim were delightful hosts.

  • "A gorgeous cottage, with small touches that really make your stay memorable."

    Beautiful views, comfy beds, great directions and friendly hosts! We would definitely stay again. If you are driving, I would be mindful of (very cute and friendly) dogs who can be found exploring the roads when approaching the cottage. Unfortunately, due to personal news, our stay was unexpectedly cut short. The hosts were extremely understanding and we look forward to coming back to make up for lost exploring time!

    Thank you so much for the positive feedback and for choosing to stay at Stone Cottage. W e hope you will be able to visit again in the future. Angela & Jim. Property Owner

  • "Thank you so much for letting us stay at Stone Cottage."

    It was a really fabulous holiday and the house is absolutely every way. The location is stunning. The only comment I might make is that the directions to it might be made a little clearer (which I guess is something Sykes should sort out?).

    It's cosy and spacious, well equipped and comfortable. (My only suggestion would be to have a dining table that sits 6.) We shall be back for the views alone, wow!

    Thanks so much for the great review. I understand your point of view about the table it's just very tight for space in the kitchen but will consider your comments. I do hope you will visit again and am delighted to hear you enjoyed your stay. Angela. Property Owner

    Many great walks nearby, via dingle way to brandon via mas an tiompain or via ballybrack and binn na mna which jim reccommended - an easyish and short climb but with stunning views of ocean. An bohar pub is about 20 mins walk with great coffee, food and wifi. There is a local bus service (kennedy's) to dingle, feohanagh and other local villages / towns - timetable is online. I hope I'll be able to visit again.

  • "Our second visit to this absolutely fantastic cottage."

    Comfort and character in abundance, with probably the best view you can imagine. The view alone makes this cottage worth your trip to Kerry!! Everything you require is supplied but for the only small (VERY) service that would be nice , was broadband WiFi. 4G is available but with the old walls of the house, the signal is not very strong inside. All in all, you could not ask for a better Holiday Rent!!!!

  • "Beautiful cottage, modern and suits needs of young family."

    Nice and warm and stunning views from all windows. Directions to the cottage should be given, as it’s no where near Ballydavid. Co-ordinates are on the website but in very small writing. A simple FAQ sheet would help with small things like nearest shop/pub/restaraunt/takeaway/church and to be left with all other information sheets. No large bin given to dispose of bins that fill up in the house. Overall we enjoyed our stay, it’s was what we expected with the exception of the small view advisory bits mentioned. Would come back. PS you will need a car to get here.

    the car had to be left on the side of the road and was showered with grit etc from passing vehicles. The kitchen was not clean the cooker was old and not up to the normal standards, the cupboards weren't clean one was particularly bad. We will definitely not go back to this property its not up to the standards of Sykes properties we have rented before and since a thumbs down.

The property

Ballydavid 4 miles.

Located in the coastal hamlet of Ballinahow, just 4 miles from the pretty village of Ballydavid is this beautiful stone cottage.

This Ballydavid cottage is over 100 years old, but has been lovingly refurbished to a fantastic standard and still maintains elements of the original character, such as the thick stone walls.

Wonderfully presented, the sitting room has a modern feel and benefits from stylish leather furniture and a small dining area, ideal for enjoying breakfast with the morning paper.

The four comfortable bedrooms at this Ballydavid cottage offer excellent sleeping accommodation for any party, with the ground floor en-suite bedroom a particular highlight due to its spacious nature and doors onto the patio where spectacular views of the Atlantic Ocean and sea cliffs can be enjoyed across picturesque rural vistas.

Lovers of the great outdoors are perfectly placed at this Ballydavid cottage, with Mount Brandon, Ireland's highest peak outside of the Macgillycuddy's Reeks range, on your doorstep, and a selection of wonderful, sandy beaches in the area.

Take a stroll to the local pier and cast a line and see what bites, or enjoy the 'craic agus ceol' - hospitality and traditional music in the nearby Bothar Pub.

The famous and popular town of Dingle is just a short drive away and with so much to see and do on this naturally stunning peninsula, this Ballydavid cottage is the perfect spot from which to base your Irish adventure.

Note: This property has a Good Housekeeping bond of £100.
