I stayed in Ard Na Carraige the first week of March and I have to say it was the most enjoyable stay I’ve had in Ireland in years. I was greeted by the owner on arrival and she showed us around the house and how everything worked, the nicest gesture was a basket of scones with jam/butter and some pastries and a half pint of milk to get us started – such a lovely touch.
The views from the house are amazing, the beach is only a short walk away and it’s a beautiful beach. There’s a small pub called “Quinns” and lovely restaurant “The Skipper” at the bottom of the road, there’s FREE wifi in Quinns which is a plus.
Ard Na Carraige is an idea base for exploring the area – especially if you are into sports such as hillwalking, swimming, running or cycling. The area is so picturesque. However, it was always nice to return to the house as it was very cosy and homely. Waking up in the morning & enjoying a coffee as I stood in the decking area looking at the surroundings is an experience I will never forget. Everyone enjoyed their stay and we’ll be back later this year if all goes well. I highly recommend Ard Na Carraige!
Being only a quick 7 minute drive from Dingle, this property is so close to all the action, but far enough away where you can really enjoy the serenity that Ventry has to offer. Ard na carraige is set perfectly on a hill so you can really enjoy the harbour views. A couple days we barely left the house and sat in the beautiful front sitting room (our favourite room) watching the day go by. So relaxing.
The house is very well kept and is quite modern yet full of character. The dining area has wonderful views of the harbour as well, which adds to the enjoyment of mealtimes. The kitchen is quite nice and has a full dishwasher, along with both a washer and dryer which is quite convenient for longer stays.
We were given wonderful recommendations on local attractions and restaurants by the owners of Ard na carraige. We loved our stay so much that we extended our stay by a night because we simply didn’t want to leave. We will definitely be back.
We come here every year. Absolutely stunning view, the house is perfect in every way. Great way to explore Dingle Peninsula, conveniently placed for beachwalks and horseriding. So looking forward to our next visit, thanks to our hosts who make this place so memorable and welcoming.
