Annie's Cottage is charming and cosy. It is located on our small farm with direct views of the sea and Slieve Mish mountains. Four acres of fields surround the cottage, some containing our friendly donkeys and lambs. Inch beach is just 10 mins. away.

The space

ANNIES COTTAGE is a warm comfortable detached stone cottage located near to the sea at Inch on the Dingle Peninsula.
It is conveniently located (no more than 30 minutes drive) for Killarney, Dingle and Tralee. It comprises three bedrooms and has spectacular views of mountains to the rear and the sea (Castlemaine Bay) to the front.

It is situated next to the owners farmhouse and their smallholding comprising donkeys, sheep and chickens, together with four acres of grounds.

A river runs through the property and access to the mountain behind is possible via a small country lane adjacent to the cottage. Inch Beach with it's four miles of white sand and dunes(and increasingly a surfing and paragliding mecca) is no more than 15 minutes drive whilst the beauty of Killarney National Park and it's lakes are also within easy reach. Dingle Town is also no more than 30 minute drive and the whole of the Dingle Peninsula is easily visited, using the cottage as a base.

A local grocery shop (8am to 10pm, daily) is 2 mins. by car. A further cottage on the farm - RIVER COTTAGE - is also available for rental. Dogs are welcome.

Guest access

All our guests are welcome to wander around the 4 acres and especially say hello to and feed the donkeys and lambs . The mountains behind and the sea in front can be accessed from the door of the cottage via a small walk in each direction

Interaction with guests

We live in the farmhouse next door and are on hand to help with any advice needed (or to lend the odd food ingredient). We enjoy talking to our guests but are wary of the need for guest privacy as well. We are usually around most days to feed the animals and maintain the garden and grounds.

Other things to note

Dogs are allowed but we charge an extra 30 euros per dog per stay to cover the additional cost of cleaning. We ask that dogs are not allowed in any of the bedrooms or on the furniture.

Great experience! The Dingle Peninsula and Slea Head Drive is absolutely amazing and words cannot express its beauty. Staying at Annie's cottage was a convenient location for us to enjoy the town of Dingle and see all of its beauty. The cottage itself was very clean, cozy, and beautiful.

We had a very enjoyable stay in Annie's. The house was very family friendly and we had more than enough space for our family of 7. The setting was very scenic and we found it a good central location for the various road trips we took. The house was well equipped for our needs and I would have no hesitation in recommending it to another family.

Thanks, Catherine. We have a large family ourselves - so over time, have got to understand what is needed to 'survive', whilst away from home with one's children. We have tried to incorporate those into the facilities and setting of our cottages - amimals, DVD's , space to run around , safe environment etc

The directions Nick gave were great (we were able to find it even in the dark and the rain!). He greeted us upon our arrival and walked us through the amenities. The house was just as described and perfect for our stay. We felt right at home.

Thanks. We try and ensure that, on arrival, our guests don't have the extra stress of both finding the cottage and then working out how everything works. That's why, where possible, we always try to meet our guests on arrival (and then we leave them alone to enjoy their time at this lovely cottage). I'm glad we were able to 'kick your holiday off' in style!

We felt really relaxed at this charming cottage and Nick and Anne made us feel welcomed. The animals are very friendly and it was nice to be greeted by their dog since we were missing ours back home. It wasn't too hard to find the place, which was appreciated after a long day exploring the Dingle peninsula, and we wished we could have stayed longer. On a clear night you can view lots of stars from the large skylights in the upstairs bedroom... even saw a few shooting stars.

Never thought of star gazing as a particular benefit of staying at Annie's Cottage but then, we do have the most fantastic starry nights here in Kerry with no light pollution whatevver (when there are no clouds of course).

It has been a pleasure to spend some time to nick’s house. Annie’s cottage is far from everything but it was what we were searching for. Close to the sea, close to this beautiful Inch’s beach. The house is clean, well furnish. There is everything to cook. The house is also very well isolated and its really appreciable in Ireland. We were with our 6 months old baby and we felt we were home. Nick was always available for us, to answer any questions we could had. The only thing we didn’t appreciate much we had to pay for our electricity, we had to pay : 30€ + 2€ for 4 nights. The renting was already high and we are thinking electricity should be included for this price. Despite the fact we were very careful with electricity. Its the only negative point of our journey. Sam, Esteban and Boris.

Response from Nick:
Thank you for your comments. Regarding the electricity and heating costs, we are clear about these at the time of booking. They simply reflect what our guests use and what it costs us (and is a much fairer system than charging higher rents, assuming that everyone is going to have the heating on all the time). Some guests choose to have a lot of heat and are happy to pay for it , others are very careful. Some guests chose to have a lot of heat and are not happy to pay for it. Samantha and Boris had a small baby and had the heating on for twice as much as the average guest - it cost them 8 euros per day in Late October. We very much enjoyed their company and thankfully for most guests, Annie's Cottage is very conveniently located being only 2 mins from the nearest shop, 20mins from Killarney and Tralee - so hardly an 'isolated' location and 'far from everything'. None of these comments were mentioned during the four day stay despite many happy conversations - Oh well!

Nick and his family were wonderful hosts. He was very easy to make arrangements with and very accommodating. He gave us excellent information on his house prior to our arrival so we knew what to expect and how to find it. Nick met us on our arrival to show us around and gave us some tips about the area. His place is very nice, and was kept quite clean. It was a great base to explore the Dingle Peninsula, which we loved. His recommendations were spot-on. Inch Beach was super nice. A great place for a morning stroll and a coffee. And Foleys restaurant (a few minutes down the road) had the best apple pie we had ever tasted.

This is a great place to stay if you want to be out of the way in a quiet, scenic setting. The grounds and the hills in the background are unreal! The house is super cozy and warm, and it's actually as cute as the pictures make it out to be. The hosts are lovely as well, and were patient with us when we had car trouble and showed up late. We also loved the donkeys, cat and dog :) very pleasant stay!
