We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in Kate's fabulous house in Ventry. Everything was perfect for our family of 6 and we are looking forward to a return visit.
Wonderful house, stunning location. Very peaceful and quiet with beautiful views. Everything provided in the house, including washing machine and dryer (VERY helpful with young children playing on the beach all day), dishwasher, all kitchen crockery and utensils. Four bedrooms and two bathrooms, all spotlessly clean, nicely furnished and very comfortable.
A sumptuous welcome basket greeted us on our arrival, containing freshly baked scones, jam, tea and coffee. This was a lovely and delicious surprise, which we all enjoyed immediately!
I would absolutely recommend this house for a relaxing holiday.
The location is ideal. Very close to Dingle, Ballyferriter and local tourist attractions. House was very clean with modern appliances. The owner Kate L goes out of her way to make sure your stay is enjoyable. You will not find a better home to rent in Ventry. I would recommend this house to anyone and plan on staying here again.
We felt very much at home in this spacious and modern cottage. My 7-year-old enjoyed having a huge, safe garden to run around in and especially liked climbing on the big rock and being the official gate-opener. The cottage is just up the road from Ventry beach and village and a quick drive to Dingle. There is so much to see in the Ventry area alone that we didn't stray too far. We went on an eco-marine tour to the Blasket Islands that left from Ventry pier; we went horseback riding courtesy of Long's, visited Dunbeg Hill Fort, Rahinane Castle ruins and many other nearby sights. I'd highly recommend The Skipper restaurant for an amazing breakfast. Our initial arrival was delayed as we missed our connecting flight from Dublin so we didn't arrive until well past 9-9:30 pm but we had been in touch with Kate and she very happily accommodated us. We were met by Sarah who greeted us warmly and even popped back home to bring us some milk, eggs and yogurt, since we hadn't had time to do any grocery shopping. That was incredibly kind and appreciated. We would certainly return to this cottage again (and I seriously wish I was still there now!).
We had a lovely relaxing week in this peaceful cottage, beautiful walks on the beach and a perfect location in the middle of the Slea head drive. Fantastic opportunity for my amateur photography, got some great shots. The cottage was really clean and comfortable, really good spec. Great buzz in Dingle town, excellent food and fun in the evening, even the short taxi ride in was surprisingly enjoyable, we got a sample of the local ceol agus craic!! we are looking forward to when we can stay again already!
My family and I stayed in Ballinleague Lodge for a week in July17 and had a wonderful week. The house is very functional and homely, perfect for our 3 young kids. It has a bright and warm interior and a large spacious garden complete with gates where the kids could safely play. The location is excellent, 5 minutes drive from Dingle, Slea Head, and Ballyferritter and a short walk from Ventry beach. We really enjoyed our stay and would highly recommend Ballinleague Lodge. Kate L was very helpful and the scones and homemade jam were much appreciated on arrival. We will be back again next year
