We enjoyed our stay in this authentic stone cottage! Paddy, the owner, gave us a warm welcome when we arrived and gave us good tips to experience nice Irish music. O'Connors Pub in the village is really a cozy place for hanging out and the concert in the musicshop of Dingle was great! We got some rainy days reading a book near the fireplace, but most of the time we were able to make great walks in the remote and beautiful surounding hills and along the coast. Also we liked the chats with the busy sheepfarmer next-door. We would love to come again! Linda and Dick
Linda and Dick were superb guests.We enjoyed our chats and it was great to see them immerse in our Irish Culture and music of which we are very proud.Linda and Dick looked after our cottage very well and left it very clean and tidy after their week with us.We look forward to their return visit sometime soon.
A typical irish cottage...
We spent a week in this cosy cottage away from the hustle and bustle in a wonderful landscape.Despite of my little accident at the beginning, we enjoyed our stay. Dingle Peninsula has a lot to offer. The mixture of different types of landscapes, all clodes by, makes Dingle to a very unique place. You can have a sunny walk on the beach and watch the cloudy covered mountains; from the mountains you can watch the dunes and farm life all over the place. Not to forget the a nice evening at the O Conners with a creamy Guinness.... Thanks Eileen, thanks Padyy for your help and support. I wish you all the best. Hope we meet again. Regard, Joerg & Imke
Joerg and Imke were a delightful couple looking for a quiet break from the hustle and bustle of a busy life.They participated in our local annual hill walk fundraiser and got a chance to experience the easy going atmosphere of our village and country life.We would be very happy to host Joerg and Imke in our cottage again.
We had the most wonderful time, Paddy and Eileen were the nicest people. The cottage was perfect as well, the surrounding area was breathtaking! Had a wonderful time.
It was so nice to meet Emily and Lureis and their two boys.We thoroughly enjoy making people feel at home while staying at our cottage.Our location at the foot of Mt Brandon and in the beautiful area of Cloghane is the undiscovered North side of the Dingle Peninsula overlooking Brandon Bay.
Looking forward to seeing this family back again to share some Appalachian Music and blend it with some great trad music from our region.
My husband and I spent two weeks at Loch Cruite Cottage in April and planning our return already. The cottage was absolutely perfect, it was spotless, cozy and the setting a total immersion into Irish living. We found fresh baked bread, wine, and the fireplace ready for a wonderful peat fire on arrival. We had the great fortune of arriving at the end of the lambing season and had the opportunity to experience farm living first hand. Yes the cottage was perfect, the setting magical, the weather was beautiful everyday...however, it was the wonderful people we met that made our experience so memorable. The next door sheep farmer was so willing to teach us about the lambs, the area and it's history. When we were interested in helping with the lambs he welcomed our participation and we made a lifelong friend. The owners went above and beyond to make us feel at home and a welcomed part of the community. From the warm greetings, the update on local activities, the invites to music sessions, to the wonderful last evening of song and friendship at the cottage. The owner's father heard that we liked to fish; he provided us with a tour of his favorite fishing spots, fishing equipment, bait, a lesson on finding cockles and brought us some wonderful fish that he had caught himself. I could go on forever about the wonderful time we had at Loch Cruite, however, it must be experienced first hand to truly appreciate this magnificent place and people. Thank you Paddy and Eileen.
We were delighted to meet our special guests Denice and Terry from North Carolina.It was a privilege and pleasure to introduce them to Our Little Bit of Heaven in the Kingdom. Our cottage suits visitors who would like to engage with the countryside and in particular a location situated adjacent to a busy sheep farm while at the same time be in a fabulous valley located at the foot of Mt Brandon (2nd Highest mountain Ireland) and 3km away from Brandon Bay that has a host of fabulous beaches to visit.
We look forward to meeting Denice and Terry again and sharing more stories and songs.
Now part of a great memory
Just back from an utterly fantastic time at Loch Cruite Cottage. I spent three unforgettable days there with my cousin for a bit of a catch up. Firstly, the area is magnificent. The north coast of Dingle is a real hidden gem. The scenery in this out of the way part of Dingle is jaw dropping and the cottage sits right in there amongst the best of it - Mt Brandon looms over your bedroom window spectacularly and the ocean can be seen off in the distance. It was fun watching cars tentatively enter the Connor Pass just across the valley.
Secondly, this is real country for craic. The pub owners will get to know you by name, tell you stories that will leave you riveted and even let you have a bash on the house guitar. The chat was friendly and full of wit and the food is excellent.
Lastly, the cottage is as picturesque as you will find. The beds plush and comfortable, the kitchen well appointed and the fireplace big and homey. (If you have issues starting peat fires, Paddy will build you an idiot proof one from scratch.) Speaking of Paddy, he's absolutely ace. Helpful, funny, full of local knowledge with a real talent for making everything just right. You'll love it. I hope to get back as soon as can be managed.
Great to meet the cousins Geoff and John from Boston and delighted they stayed in 'our little bit of heaven in the Kingdom (Pet name for Co Kerry).It is always a pleasure for us to welcome visitors and make suggestions of what to see and do.To meet two great musicians and singers was a pleasure and it was great to share songs and guitar instrumentals in the weekly Tinteáin Cheoil with all the local talent on Monday Night and then some more songs and tunes with Micheál in O Connors pub in Cloghane later in the evening over a few creamy pints of Guinness. The visit finuished with a night of Music in Murphys Pub on the pier in Brandon Village.We are looking forward to seeing Geoff and John with their families again and next time hopefully Mt Brandon will be clear for a mountain hike.
Wonderful Stay Everything We Were Looking For
We were looking for a base to set ourselves up in a location that was we could experinece the "true Ireland". This was a perfect choice. The cottage was located on a working sheep farm. It was fantastic and so interesting for the children and adults a like. Tremendous walks through sheltered valleys with amazing vistas done to the sea and surrounding mountains.
The walk up to the Loch Cruite directly behind the cottage was exceptional.
The cottage itself is a rennovated and modernised 200 year old cottage that exudes the charm of yester years with all the mod cons.
I would certainly recommend this property to our friends and relatives. It was very clean and well maintained and the owners were contactable and very helpful in ensuring that we had everything we needed and that our week was action packed and planned.
We had some fabulous nights in Cloghane village with traditional music and ballads in O'Connors Bar. Brandon Pier and Murphys Bar was also a highlight. There was also a good selectioon of quality "pub grub".
We were also ecstatic to discover that we had the Wild Atlantic Way right on our very door step and explored this at out leisure over the week.
The walks were fabulous and would highly recommend this property for those would love the great outdoors, fresh air and amazing vistas.
