Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
If you have submitted a review for a holiday rental property, we may also ask that you provide us with proof of your stay to ensure that your review is attached to the correct rental property.
Holiday rental reviews collected via the VRBO website (formerly Homeaway) and syndicated to the Tripadvisor website are not currently subject to Tripadvisor’s standard moderation processes.

Amazing stay in oileán rua
We are just home from an amazing stay in Sarah and rays, what a beautiful holiday home, probably the nicest air bnb we've stayed in, so spotlessly clean, fresh and cosy with the most beautiful view, the seating area outside in the evenings was stunning we didn't need any restaurant to eat at we had everything we could of asked for, the personal touches were so thoughtful, the fresh bread was delicious along with the eggs and milk for our first morning of the holiday to enjoy, we didn't want to come home, thank you so much for an amazing stay at oileán rua, I'd recommend this place to everyone it really is perfect.

5 Star Excellence
I’ve stayed at many holiday homes over the years and this is truly one of the very best. It is beautifully furnished and equipped: a real home away from home. Sarah and Ray (the owners) are hospitable and friendly. Nothing is too much trouble. I loved the views of the ocean and mountains from the living room, and the log burning stove kept me cosy and warm. I really recommend this house if you’re looking for somewhere comfortable, relaxing, quiet and ideally positioned on the dingle peninsular for walking and sight-seeing. I will definitely be back. Thank you Sarah and Ray for a lovely week.

Sehr schöne Unterkunft
Sehr nette Vermieter und ein schönes großzügiges Haus in ruhiger Lage. Perfekt als Ausgangspunkt für Ausflüge auf der Dingle Peninsula. Es hat uns an nichts gefehlt und es war auch mit Kleinkind ideal. Wir kommen gerne wieder!

The visitors book on site is also full of excellent reviews, it is impossible not to love this place. Totally recommend this accommodation.

Very comfortable spacious accommodation
A week at this place allowed us to explor the Dingle Peninsula, and undertake one of our passions, hiking. We were fortunate to visit Great Blasket Island, climb Mt Eagle, and undertake several shorter walks near Anascaul and Clogher Head. All fabulous. We had gale force winds, some rain and some perfect days. To return to the house each night was a delight. Th owners are very friendly, and helpful, the provisions in the pantry were generous, and we highly recommend this place.

Happy Times
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! Tips! 1. Swim at Wine Strand 2. Slea Head Drive 3. Ring of Skellig/Valentia Island 4.Dingle Ahoy (Fish & Chips Van) 5. Inch Strand 6. Wheaten Bread (Ballyferriter) 7. Killarney National Park 8. Arapent Cathedral 9. Titanic Experience (Cork)

Amazing
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.

Wunderschön
Die Lage und die Ausstattung des Hauses war außergewöhnlich gut. Der Service und die Freundlichkeit der Vermieterin waren nicht zu übertreffen. Wir haben uns sehr wohlgefühlt! Vom Wohnzimmer aus hatten wir einen Ausblick auf eine Atlantikbucht und auf die schöne irische Berglandschaft.
