Dingle Peninsula: Beautiful House 'an Máimín' Ballyferriter, Dingle

Bedrooms 3
Property type house
Minimum Stay 4 - 7 nights


About the property

3 bedroom / 3 bathroom house at base of a mountain with sea views

Nestled in the picturesque village of Baile an Fheirtearaigh / Ballyferriter in the Dingle Peninsula, this beautiful house boasts three bedrooms, three bathrooms, a tv room and a large kitchen / dining area. With spectacular views of the three sisters to the front, and the Croaghmarhin mountain at the back, it is only a minutes' stroll to the village.

AUGUST Bookings are from Saturday to Saturday. The latest film set attraction to Ballyferriter / Ceann Sibéal is Star Wars, which was filmed during May / June 2016.

Lonnaithe i sráidbhaile Baile an Fheirtéaraigh i leithinis Chorca Dhuibhne, teach álainn le 3 seomraí leapa, trí seomraí folctha, seomra teilifíse agus a cistine/seomra bidh. Radharc álainn amach ar na trí deirfiúracha chun tosaigh, agus ar chúl Cruach Marthain.

Ideal for families as you are spoilt for choice with miles of sandy beaches on your doorstep – Beal Ban, Clogher, Coumeenole and Wine Strand to name but a few. Golf enthusiasts won't be disappointed either, as the renowned Dingle golf links (Ceann Sibéal) is only a 5 minute drive away. Breathtaking views guaranteed on this course! The area is a haven walkers, cyclists, runners and anyone fond of the outdoors.

Baile an Fheirtearaigh is on the Slea Head drive and is only 10 minutes from Dunquin (Dún Chaoin) pier where you can take a boat to the Great Blasket Island. Your closest town is Dingle, famed for many things, including the Dingle Dolphin 'Fungie' and a boat trip from Dingle pier to see him up close is a must!

Fancy speaking a 'cupla focal' – a few words in Irish - then you have come to the right place. Baile an Fheirtearaigh (Ballyferriter) is in the heart of the Gaeltacht or Irish speaking area. It is rich in culture, traditions, language and music.

After a long day of activities, a short walk (1 minute from the house) will take you to the four pubs in the village where food is available and lively traditional music most nights during the summer period.

A place of immense beauty and tranquility and a house with all the modern comforts needed to make your stay a pleasure. What more could you ask for!

A wonderful stay, in a wonderful spot

  • 5 of 5

We felt so welcomed and cared for by Michael's sister when we arrived on the beautiful Dingle peninsula. It felt like being welcomed by family. The house and amenities were absolutely perfect. We could not have asked for a better start to our Irish holiday. This is a house I would recommend to all my family and friends.

This home is well equipped and has ample space to spread out and enjoy its wonderful amenities

  • 5 of 5

The location is perfect for exploring the Dingle Peninsula and surrounding areas.

We stayed for 5 nights in the middle of a 3 week visit Ireland. While there we were able to enjoy the Dingle Food Festival, the beautiful Slea Head Drive and the food and music in the local pubs in Ballyferriter.

Sharon visited us shortly after our arrival and made sure that we were settled in and gave us suggestions about what to see while staying there.

Overall, our stay was a great experience.

The rugged view from the back of the house is beautiful.

Michael's house provided the perfect pause during our visit to Ireland

Our Family Stay at 'An Maimin' in Ballyferriter

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this lovely home for one week while on holiday. It was an outstanding choice! It is located at the top of the hill with a view of the 'Wild Atlantic' and the 'Three Sisters Mountains.' The home has 3 large bedrooms, 2 with ensuites, and a smaller bedroom. it is one block from several pubs and the corner grocery, where you can buy freshly baked breads, scones, and donuts and most anything else you need. It is in an excellent location - away from all the tour buses and people. It is just a short drive to Dingle town. It is on the ring of Kerry and only a short drive to Dunquin, where you can ride a ferry out to the Blaskets. We want to thank Michael for all of his advice prior to our arrival. When we arrived, Michael's sister Sharon greeted us with the keys as well as a small tour of the home. When we discovered our wi-fi was acting up, we called Sharon. In a very short time, Sharon brought us her personal router from home and set it up. Several times Sharon 'dropped by' to check that everything was fine. Michael's mom, Phil, also came by to check on us. I simply can't say everything in this small review. What I will say is that on our next holiday in Ireland we will stay in this home. Michael, our thanks to you, Phil, and Sharon for making our holiday so great!

We spent just over 2 weeks travelling around Ireland, and without a doubt our favorite place to stay--by far--was this little gem tucked on a hillside in the little village of Ballyferriter. We were travelling with our 5-yr old son and "Grandma." The home was spacious, very clean, comfortable, and easily the most well-equipped VRBO we have every stayed in.

I was a little worried about the remoteness of the property, but it's location was awesome.

Just 15 minutes from the town of Dingle, and just one block off of the Slea Head Drive, it was the best of both worlds. We were met by the owner's mother (could not have been sweeter) who showed us around the home. 3 HUGE bedrooms -- 2 upstairs and 1 on the main floor (King Bed / Queen Bed / 2 Twins), each with its own full bath. There was a lovely kitchen with what seemed like newer appliances and a full size washer and separate dryer (rare in our experience in Europe). It had every kitchen gadget you could want, and high-quality, matching dinnerware, flatware, and glasses. It also had a nice, large table, and two areas for TV watching (in the living room and a separate "den-type" room). The showers were hot and powerful.

The owner's sister came by a few times to see if we needed anything and to offer advice. She was so kind and helpful!

We had lovely views of the mountain we were situated on and ocean/landscape views from the two upper bedrooms. We were also a short walk (3 minutes) to Murphy's -- a little pub/restaurant where we had one of the best meals of our trip. A 2-minute walk will get you to a little convenience store where you can get produce, deli, cereal, bread, and any other staples you forgot to get at the Super Valu in Dingle (don't get the pizza, though -- it was terrible!).

We spent 3 nights and if we could do it again, we'd stay longer. The beaches are incredible and the Slea Head Drive is stunning. It would also be possible to do the Ring of Kerry from here, but it'd be a long day.

Can't say enough positive things about this place! Seriously...stay here!!!
