Prostor

Wild Atlantic House sleeps 8 people. The house is our much beloved family holiday house and is still frequently used by our extended family and by our friends, who keep returning to it. We have used it continually, since the early 1960s for our holidays.

OLD FASHIONED TRADITIONAL FARMHOUSE: It is an old farmhouse, with some antique style furniture. The house is a good example of the best of the old, blended with the best of the modern world. It has lots of living space. While the kitchen and bathrooms are new, the house still retains many of its nineteenth century features, including the original 1890s staircase and beams. we love the house because of its traditional ambience and because it is the perfect spot for an old fashioned "bucket & spade" beach holiday, while having much more to offer.

BEDROOMS AND BATHROOMS: There are 5 bedrooms: 2 twin rooms with sea and mountain views, 2 double rooms (queen sized beds) with views across the adjoining hilly pastures, and a single bedroom with a view of the sea and mountains. All beds have comfortable mattresses, a duvet and 2 pillows per person. There are 3 bathrooms upstairs, 2 with showers and one with a cast iron bath. There is a spacious wet room, downstairs, with a shower. All the bathrooms are a generous size and all have windows.

ESCAPE: Wild Atlantic House is a discrete retreat for couples, who wish to escape the pressures of city life, to enjoy the romantic cosy parlour, the old fashioned ambience, open fires and candle lit meals in the dining hall.

DIGITAL DETOX: There is no TV, DVD player or WIFI. This is appreciated by most of our guests. There is free WiFi in the local pubs. 3G mobile phone reception is available. There is a radio, tape/CD and a gramophone/record player with a selection of records, CDs and tapes.

CHIMNEY WALL STAINS: Despite our best efforts and constant repainting, stains from 125 years of soot on the inside of the west gable, keep re-appearing. if this is likely to bother you, this is not the house for you.

BARBECUE: There is a large steel fire pit with tripod, on which you may barbecue (use natural timber logs only) and a smaller one for burning charcoal. Try barbecuing locally reared, mountain lamb - wonderful flavour, once eaten never forgotten! Or freshly caught mackerel from Brandon Bay.

BARN: The stone barn is attached to the house and it provides a large area of storage space for kayaks, canoes, fishing rods, surf boards, diving equipment, bicycles etc. The barn contains childrens' buckets and spades, beach balls, body boards, shrimping nets and more for your use.

GARDEN: There is a garden to the front and to the rear of house. The garden furniture provides seating & table for 12 people to enjoy a meal outside and there are other garden chairs, as well as a small circular garden table. For railways enthusiasts, there are two railway lines in the garden, which once formed part of the Tralee and Dingle Light Railway, that closed down in 1953.

PARKING: There is plenty of off road private parking for at least 4 cars, in front of the stone barn.

Dostupno gostima

Guests have the use of the entire house, barn and garden all to themselves. It is a discrete and private property, but not isolated.

Interakcija s gostima

We prefer to leave guests alone to enjoy their holidays. We are always available by telephone or email, if you wish to make contact with us. Our caretaker is most helpful and lives very close to Wild Atlantic House. He is a busy farmer, but he is usually readily available to help out with any emergencies that might arise.

Ostale napomene

CHARACTER: The house is old and has character, which means that some things like the 1890s staircase are quirky and have low headroom. As it is an old house, with many of its original characteristics, it may not be suitable for people who suffer from allergies. It is not wheelchair friendly and is not suitable for those with mobility problems. It is suitable for older children, but not for those under the age of five.

HEATING: There is some effective electric heating and there are 2 fireplaces downstairs that you may use, but this is not the house for you, if you require a constantly hot house, as the old part of the house still has its old wooden sash windows and old doors, which are not draught proof. However, it is still suitable for a romantic winter weekend, with its open log fires. Hot water bottles are provided, along with lots of extra blankets. Do not light fires upstairs, please.

BOARD GAMES, CARDS, JIGSAWS, GRAMOPHONE/RECORD PLAYER AND BOOKS: The house has a good selection of popular board games, jigsaws, playing cards, water-colour paints, coloured crayons and books suitable for all ages to enjoy. There is a gramophone/record player (plays 78s, 45s and 33s), a tape/CD player and a radio.

ON ARRIVAL: The beds will not be made up. We respectfully ask that you leave your used linen and towels into the laundry in nearby Castlegregory, this gesture is always greatly appreciated by us. If you wish for the beds to be made up on your arrival, please contact us well in advance (there will be an extra charge depending on the number of people staying). If you would prefer to leave your linen etc in the house on your departure, please leave €10 per person with it.

CLEANING: We have someone who very kindly will help to clean the house after you leave, but we still ask that you would leave the house clean and tidy on your departure, wash all dirty dishes and leave it completely free of all dog hair.

ESSENTIALS: The house comes fully supplied with a well equipped kitchen with microwave, toaster, dishwasher, fridge/freezer etc. The house has tea, coffee, sugar, cooking oil and some other basic foodstuffs in the kitchen for your use. A hair dryer, iron, ironing board, vacuum cleaner, shampoo, soap, first aid kit, smoke detectors and house manual containing safety instructions are all supplied. The utility room has a clothes washing machine, clothes dryer and there are clothes’ lines, both inside the barn and outside.

- CHILDREN: Over the age of 5 are welcome.
- FIRE PIT: Real timber logs only, to be used in the large steel fire pit, or it may crack.
- TURF FIRE: There will be plenty of logs and/or turf briquettes for your first night. It is greatly appreciated if you leave enough turf and logs for the following guests' first night.
- UPSTAIRS: No fires to be lit in the upstairs fireplaces.
- RUBBISH: We appreciate it if our guests dispose of their rubbish at the local community centre collection point, it is only a 10 minute round trip from the house. We also ask that guests are kind enough to leave clean rubbish bags out for the next guests.
- LINEN & TOWELS: If you are Irish, it is probably easiest to bring your own towels and bedlinen. You are welcome to use the towels and linen (always clean and neatly folded, but not necessarily always ironed) in the house, provided you are prepared to kindly drop them into the laundry in Castlegregory, on your way home (a 10 minute diversion). If you are travelling from abroad, the latter option may suit you better. The beds are supplied with good quality mattresses, duvets and 2 pillows per person. Please contact us, well in advance, in order for us to make arrangements that will suit you best. Alternative arrangements may be made, by special request.
- DOGS: Well-behaved dogs and pets are welcome. We prefer that you do not allow them upstairs. Please bring dog/pet coverings for their beds with you. Wild Atlantic House is in sheep country, so please keep your dog under proper control, when outside. The local farmers do not like seeing dogs walked on the hills, even when on a lead. When the tide is out, there are miles of empty beaches, where you can happily walk your dog. Please understand that some of our cleaners and guests do not tolerate dog hair, so please ensure that all traces of your animal’s hair are removed on your departure. There is a good quality vacuum cleaner, available for your use.
- UNSUITABLE: The house is unsuitable for those who require a high level of heating and for those with limited mobility.
- HAZARDS: There are many hazards associated with an old house like Wild Atlantic House, splinters in floor boards, uneven paths, uneven stairs, low doorways, low windows and more, so care is advised. Further details are available in guests' manual in the house or on request.
-ENJOY: we love our frequent holidays in this old house and really hope that you will as well.

The perfect location for a quiet, laidback genuine Irish experience in the countryside. The house is a great mix of old traditional and modern conveniences. The communication and ease of working with the owner was seamless.

Having family in the area and having rented houses many times in Cloghane, this house was truly a gem. It is very large and accommodated everyone in our party comfortably. The house is modern and clean and has everything you could possibly want. Caro left detailed directions and information, and it was a pleasure staying here. We will definitely be looking to rent this house again the next time we come to Cloghane!

If you are liking for a true, immersive Wild Antlantic experience, look no further...this is it! This house is truly amazing. It's huge, with plenty of bed space for a large family...but it's such a great value that it's affordable just for a couple looking for more space than a hotel or B&B will offer. If you love history, antiques, and old-world charm, this house is for you...the front part of the house is the original, with ancient wooden floors, stone fireplaces, and antique furniture. If you prefer modern comforts, this house is for you too...the entire rear part of the house is an add-on that looks brand new, with an enormous kitchen with all the conveniences you can imagine, fresh new bedrooms and bathrooms, all sparkling clean and in perfect working order. I was a bit worried about the temps, as we hail from sunny California and were caught a bit by surprise by how cold it was in Ireland in early summer...but the radiators came on periodically and kept the place very comfy. And I loved lounging in the old sitting room, wrapped in a blanket and reading a book. We especially loved the remote feel...surrounded by farms, all you can hear around you are the baaa'ing of sheep, and honking of geese. If you are looking to blast in and out quickly, this might not be a good choice...there's quite a checklist of things to do when you leave, including dropping off the keys up the road, delivering the garbage into town, and bringing in all your used linen to the laundry in another town. But if you think of this as staying at a family member's treasured holiday house, it feels right...that's what you'd do. And this DOES feel like you are part of the family while you are there! We feel so blessed to have been able to experience this beautiful family holiday home in the wilds of the spectacular Dingle Peninsula.

Thank you so much for treating our house as though it was your family's special holiday home and for understanding that is what the house is to us. We hope that you will come back next time for a full week and that we will have the chance to meet up with you. Glad to hear that our guest instructions were useful and clear!

Such an amazing place! There were 4 of us (me, my husband our 13 year old daughter and her friend) plus Dorie the dog. The house is beautiful and charming - a mix of old world and new convenience. Everything imaginable for the perfect holiday was thought out in advance. It really felt like our own home. The beds were comfy, lovely duvets, interesting art work, tons of books and games - the girls didn't even miss the TV and snap chat. Once the girls discovered the lovely beach just down the road, we were there most of time - coming back to the house for meals. We had just one day of rain and went to the aquarium in Dingle which was fun. Dingle is only about 20 minutes away over the Connor Pass. We were only a day into our holiday at the Wild Atlantic House and we were already making plans to come back to this beautiful home next year. Thank you Caro for everything. PS: Dorie was happy to stay in the spacious mud room/utility area, even though she could have ventured further afield.

The setting of the cottage is idyllic, with views of the mountains and the sea. The house is a mix of a modern build and an old cottage and has plenty of space and is very well equipped.

Lovely old house which has been brought up to date with everything you will need for a comfortable stay. Very welcoming hosts and plenty of little touches to make you feel at home. We spent a lovely week here. Highlights were climbing mount Brandon, cycling over the Connor pass and kayaking with fungi. Recommend this side of the peninsula for peace and quiet and some beautiful scenery.

A compulsive traveller, I enjoy walking, cycling and riding holidays. I especially enjoy body boarding in the surf, on Fermoyle Beach, County Kerry, at all times of the year.
I am as happy travelling on foot with a backpack using public transport, as I am travelling first class (which rarely happens!). Love eating good quality locally produced food and drink.
Respectful of other people's property, as I manage our family's Wild Atlantic House, in the west of Ireland and know how good it is when visitors enjoy, appreciate it and treat it with the same care and respect, as we do.
Our family have been continuously holidaying in the house near Cloghane, Co. Kerry since the 1960s. It is a very special place that is loved by the whole extended family.
