Spacious house in Ireland on hillside overlooking Atlantic

Our summer house with large garden is located on the South-West coast of Ireland on the slopes of Mt Eagle, Co. Kerry, with fabulous views of the Atlantic and surrounding mountains. It is very secluded, accessible by a private road, but at only a 5 minutes drive (25 minutes walk) to the beach and to all amenities; it is a 15 minute-drive to the lively town of Dingle and a half-hour climb to a mountain lake. The house is modern and has all facilities, including satellite television and broadband. It has three bedrooms, three bathrooms, a large living room, sitting room and two studies, all with lovely views. There is also a large garden. The upstairs study has a sofa bed for additional guests. The house is compact so while it can easily accommodate 6-8 people, it is also comfortable for a couple.Having two separate studies makes it very suitable as a country retreat for academics writing books.

I have rented this home twice over the past 3 years, once for a 3 month period and another for 1 month. The first time I rented the home, I was not familiar with the area or the homeowners. They provided so much helpful information about the house and the area, which left me feeling very welcomed. The home itself is gorgeous with very friendly neighbors in a family-oriented village , of whom you will get to know at the local pub. I traveled alone on both trips and always knew I had others to count on if I needed assistance, particularly from the person that the homeowners hire to maintain upkeep on the home while they are away. The homeowners are very friendly and always accessible. The home is also settled nicely on the Dingle peninsula with accomodities such as an e-bike, surf boards, internet access and laundry. A hike over the mountain behind the home (Mt Eagle) provides a spectacular 360 view of the peninsula including blasket islands. I have rented a car and also relied on local transportation (or my own two feet) to get to Dibgle and surrounding areas, as there is not a public bus that runs from the home into town. Even without transportation, I never was short of things to do. Also, I was able to wake up each morning and write peacefully I plan to rent this home again soon.
