    Property description
    Holiday Rental House – 
    2 Bedrooms, 2 Bathrooms, Sleeps 6
    'An Bothán' is the Irish for 'The Shed'. An Bothán began its existence as the home of the O' Shea Family, my mother-in-law's family in the late 1800s. When the family built a new house nearby in the 1950s the house was then used as a milking shed. Over the years the house had fallen into disrepair until 2002 when we began the project of restoring it to a habitable space once again. We hope that we have managed to marry old charm with new modern comforts. Outside there is a seating area and this is a real sun-trap when the sun is shining. Our closest beach is only a 5 min. stroll from the cottage, at Muiríoch. It is a long, sandy beach wonderful for walking, safe for swimming and ideal for building sand castles. This is only one of many beaches in the area... more

    Additional amenities & feature info
    The cottage is fully equipped with all modern appliances to make your stay as comfortable as possible. The main double bedroom is en suite and has a view of 'An Fear Marbh' island. Soak those aching muscles after a hard day's hill-walking in the roll-top cast iron bath, in the main bathroom. The main living space has high ceilings and exposed beams and also contains a wood-burning stove for any cool evenings. The loft area has proved very popular with guests in the past as a chill-out area or indeed a den for the children where they can play games.

5 of 5 stars Reviewed 14 January 2013 for a stay in December 2012

We spent a delightful four nights with two 10 year olds at this cozy but modern stone cottage during a rather stormy session just after Christmas. The howling wind, pelting rain and sleet only added to the ambience and we felt snug as bugs each night listening to the tempest. In fact it didn't deter at all from exploring all... more

We enjoyed our stay in this cottage. The cottage is very comfortable and has lots of character . The location is good too, about a 5-10min drive to Dingle and about a 10-15min walk to nearby beaches and two pubs. Would recommend for anyone looking for a relaxing base on the Dingle peninsula. more

I found An Bothán after a long search for a suitable place to take my father for a 70th birthday trip. This turned out to be a great choice; we received a very warm welcome with a bottle of vino! What a great place to stay - there is so much on the doorstep to do if you like walking,... more
