CARRAIGLEA is a typical Irish style cottage located on the Wild Atlantic Way. It offers stunning views over Dingle Bay and the Blasket Islands. The 200-year-old thatched house has been extended and restored with great attention to detail, without destroying the typical Irish character.

Carraiglea offers two self-contained apartments that can be rented separately. A connecting door in the house makes it possible to rent the house completely for a large family or 2 friendly families.

Both are very cozy and comfortably furnished and have a fantastic view of the sea and the Dingle Peninsula. Both parties can enjoy the large, beautifully landscaped garden, because there are various cozy sitting areas surrounded by plants with garden furniture.

The main house Carraiglea No1 can accommodate up to 5 people. It has 3 bedrooms and a shower room with WC. Newly built in 2000, the neighboring Carraiglea No2 can accommodate 2 adults and 1 child. There is a double bedroom and under the roof another small bedroom with 2 small single beds. Access to the room under the roof is via a narrow terracotta staircase. In this house there is a shower room and a separate toilet.

The house is absolutely quiet, far below the road WILD ATLANTIC WAY. Nearby is the small town of Kells, halfway between Glenbeigh and Caherciveen. There is a small shop, a post office and a pub within a few minutes walk.

This picturesque bay is also home to the popular KELLS BEACH and KELLS BAY GARDEN. The latter is an old Victorian garden with one of the most important collections of subtropical plants of the southern hemisphere in Europe. For hikers, the mountains of the region are a paradise and access to the KERRY WAY trail is also nearby.

Many other attractions are only a few minutes drive away. GLENBEIGH with other shops, pub and restaurant as well as the impressive 2km long sandy beach ROSSBEIGH BEACH with its dunes is only 9km away. CAHERCIVEEN lies in the other direction west only 14km along the RING OF KERRY. There is a larger selection of supermarkets, shops, butchers, fish shops, pubs, restaurants and attractions.

The picturesque harbor village of PORTMAGEE is not far from Caherciveen, from here boats start to the Skellig Islands. A magical place protected as a UNESCO World Heritage Site, a drive here is highly recommended.
