“Great value, great view”
Reviewed June 2, 2014 for a stay in May 2014

people found this review helpful

My brother-in-law made the reservation, but I stayed here with my husband. We had a wonderful time and would go back. If you are looking for a peaceful, relaxing place, this is it. The lack of cable and Internet were a bonus for us. A phone would be nice for emergencies, given that US ones don't work in Ireland. There is a great view of the ocean in the front and verdant hills at the back. Various trails are nearby if you like hiking.
The rooms are indeed small, but fine for a rental. The beds were very comfortable, the bathroom and the kitchen functional. The pine furniture worked well for the place. We were early in the season, so it took quite a bit to heat up the place (even with the fireplace), and the owner charges a lot for electricity (thus the 4 stars instead of 5). There is a washer/dryer, but you have to put in coins for electricity, and it doesn't tell you how much you need for a load. Since our cellphones from the States don't work in Europe, I had no way to inquire from the owner, who would do well to put a sign in there.
You will need a car: Dingle is about 20 mn away, and the only thing you could reach by foot after quite a hike is a pub. The great advantage of this place is its position on the scenic road of the peninsula. There are so many attractions within an hour's drive that you won't have time to see them all.

“Very cosy but a bit dated”
Reviewed May 7, 2014 for a stay in April 2014

Our Host (Phil) was excellent and made us feel very welcome. The little cottage was very cosy despite wet and windy Dingle weather. Phil provided us with a good starter pack for the fire which warmed the cottage very well. The cottage was small, quiet and cosy but the cottage and fixtures are starting to be a bit dated. These days internet access should be as standard as TV. The furniture and bathroom fittings are quaint but probably due for updating. We had no issues except that since the cottage had probably been closed up for the winter we had a few too many insects such as slatters in the bathroom and bedroom. The cottages are well located and an easy drive to Dingle town and some very nice pubs at Ballyferriter.

“Wonderful Cottage”
Reviewed April 5, 2014 for a stay in March 2014

We had a fantastic stay at Suantra cottage. We loved the scenery, privacy, closeness to ocean, and hiking. We enjoyed going to the St Paddy's day parade and pubs in Ballyferriter. Philomena was a good host and the cottage was everything we needed to enjoy the Dingle peninsula.

“Its a grand view!”
Reviewed September 22, 2013 for a stay in August 2013

My husband and I stayed for a week in early August and had a wonderful time. We had the best view on the island and checked the weather every morning by how much we could see of Sybil's Head. Mrs. O'Conner was a welcoming hostess and the cottage was as advertised. The adult irish language school happened to be in session in Ballyferriter the same week we were visiting and so the little village was hopping. Easy access to all the points of interest on the peninsula.

“Nice accomodation and good value for money”
Reviewed August 31, 2013 for a stay in August 2013

This was our third time staying here - with a forty year gap!! Everything that one could want is supplied and the accommodation is ideally located facing the ocean. What more could one want? Mrs O'Connor is extremely welcoming and it was lovely and nostalgic to catch up on the lost years.

“Lovely Cottage in stunning location”
Reviewed February 28, 2013 for a stay in February 2013

We stayed in Suantra Cottages in February. Despite the cold weather there was plenty to do and see in the area. The children loved the beach so nearby and that we were able to bring our dog was a bonus. The cottage is very comfortable and the owner lovely. We are planning to visit again soon.
