    “Luxury in the West of Ireland”

    We stayed for a week at the end of March, early Apri. We know the area quite well but we hadn't stayed out beyond Ballydavid before. The cottage is in a very remote location but is superbly appointed, with spectacular views out towards the Atlantic in one direction, and of Mount Brandon the other way. ...

    We stayed for a week at the end of March, early Apri. We know the area quite well but we hadn't stayed out beyond Ballydavid before. The cottage is in a very remote location but is superbly appointed, with spectacular views out towards the Atlantic in one direction, and of Mount Brandon the other way. The cottage is equipped with every conceivable modern appliance and can accommodate three couples comfortably. Large windows make the cottage light and airy. The nearest pub is 25 mins walk away and it takes 15 mins to drive to Dingle. The owner lives next door and has sheep and cattle, as well as numerous dogs! There are two itinerant goats who wander from field to field. The weather wasn't great but even the darkest day can brighten up suddenly and surprise you with brilliant sunshine. We had a great time and would love to return.

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.
