“Exceptional property, wonderful owners, highly recommend”
Reviewed 4 May 2018 for a stay in April 2018

An impressive and spacious property with everything you need. Exceptionally clean, conveniently located near Dingle, with beautiful views and beaches nearby. The owners, Ray and Sarah were very welcoming and went out of their way to ensure we had a wonderful stay. The visitors book on site is also full of excellent reviews, it is impossible not to love this place. Totally recommend this accommodation.

Many thanks to Sarah & Ray for a wonderful stay! Accommodation was top class and will definitely return again. Location is perfect allowing us to explore the wonderful South West Kerry and Cork. But returning every evening to a peaceful and tranquil setting with what can only be described as probably the best views in the Area. Being Ireland there's no guarantee of sunshine which means choosing your accommodation is so important and on this occasion we struck gold!

“Amazing”
Reviewed 10 November 2016 for a stay in June 2016

I and my partner had an amazing stay with Oilean Rua. The owner gave us a warm welcome, they are very helpful and kind. The cottage is really lovely inside and out and the view outside is stunning. We had a great time visiting nearby places like Dingle and shops. It's nice visiting Dingle at 10:00 in the evening whilst the sky are still clear.

We had a relax and peaceful holiday.

“Absolutely Fabulous”
Reviewed 12 June 2016 for a stay in May 2016

This is a lovely property. The owners Sarah and Ray are very helpful and considerate. The property is a separate annexe to their home but is beautifully furnished and very private. We were so lucky having seven days of unbroken sunshine on the Dingle Peninsula. It is a lovely part of Ireland and we enjoyed the long walks in the beautiful Brandon Bay, Ventry and Tralee Bay, Slea Head, the Connor Pass , as well as the Eco Tour boat ride from Dingle. There is so much to do here but the holiday was made so special by the hospitality of Ray and Sarah. I would highly recommend this property, it is very special.
