This rental felt like a bit of a gamble at first since there were no previous Trip Advisor reviews. It ended up being a truly lovely rental experience for us. The owners live in an attached cottage/ apartment next door. We didn't hear them at all. It was so nice, you almost wonder if you want to keep the secret to yourself and keep going back unhindered! But no, the word needs to get out to be fair to the owners. We interacted with Sarah who provided useful suggestions, answered questions, provided toys for our 3 year old to borrow, provided him a separate bed, and equipped the place very well so that we didn't really need anything. The furniture and layout were very nice. Next door there is a home daycare/ preschool and they were very friendly, it seems it would be an option to include a child into their setup if desired.
The lawn is spacious, the gardening and landscaping is lovely.
It was really nice to have a washer and dryer available. They also have a microwave, toaster, real oven, stove, fridge, basic pots and pans and dishes, etc. Inside the bathroom there is both a bath and a shower. The only thing that they don't have is a dish washing machine (but they had everything needed to wash your own dishes).
I felt like they had put a lot of thought and attention into making sure all necessary things were present like a peeler and a wine opener, towels, shampoo, hand soap, tissues, some washing detergent, starter kitchen items, etc.
The only potential negative to consider is that the road to the place from Ventry is a one lane road at places, and for those of us who aren't used to the narrow roads driving on the opposite side of the street it requires some bravery- especially as the locals drive much faster than the tourists. But the location is about a 5 minute drive from Ventry and 10 minutes from Dingle town, with some more nice places to visit in the opposite directions, so you don't feel isolated nor too far removed from the action.
I would not only recommend it to others, I would definitely go back myself.
