Great views with large garden perfect for kids. Clean and spacious with everything you'd need. Lovely spot - we had poor weather but it was still magic - the kids loved it.

“Paradise!”

We arrived back from ventry holiday home a week ago and have to say it completely lived up to our expectations. The house was beautiful, clean and homely and was set in the most idyllic location, overlooking the bay. Dory was the perfect host and made sure we had everything we needed including a basket of freshly cooked scones, butter and milk on arrival - a wonderful touch! Ventry itself was so peaceful and beautiful but it only took around five minutes in the car to get to Dingle where there was plenty of life! We can honestly say that county kerry is one of the most beautiful places we have ever visited and will definitely return one day.

“What a great spot!”

We stayed here as a family group whilst visiting relatives who live locally.
The house is in an excellent position with stunning views over Ventry Bay. It is a short walk down (about 300 yards) to the village with post office/store, friendly pub and great little French style sea food restaurant and then a few steps more onto the long sandy beach.
There are little car parks if you want to drive down to the beach which we did having some older folks in our group.
The house itself is really comfortable and very clean and nicely furnished with a deck and plenty of other places to sit and admire the view. Everything on the website is very accurate ( if anything it undersells this house) and Dorry the owner made the whole booking a very easy process.
Will definitely go back.

“Cosy house with amazing views!”

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!
