“Another perfect stay”
Reviewed August 24, 2015 for a stay in August 2015
1
person found this review helpful

We have just returned from another perfect stay at Le Cheile. We have stayed there for many years now and hope to do so for many more. We are now 2 adults and 3 children, and this year my sister, her husband and their 2 small children stayed with us. The house was well equipped to deal with us.

Years ago we stayed in a nearby self catering let, but we think Le Cheile is better; We haven't looked back. There are no houses to obstruct views to the sea (last house on the road) but the views are really 360 degrees here.
An Béal Bán Beach is but a 200 Metre stroll and has been awarded the Green Coast Award for 2015.

The house is on a substantial lawned plot with ample parking to front.
Inside,the curious arrangement of upstairs lounge separated from a kitchen dining area downstairs works brilliantly in context of a family. These rooms are stocked with a stove and fireplace but we have never required their use as the house is warm. The lounge upstairs comes with a growing DVD/Video library with plenty of junior material to allow adults R&R chill time downstairs. The kitchen has everything we need, particularly wrt pots, pans, cutlery and cooking apparatus. A utility room off the kitchen (with Dutch half door) houses plant, clearly marked heating controls, storage presses and microwave.
A wash machine and dryer takes pressure of the suitcase load!

We could write chapters on the area itself -our Summers would not be complete without a stay in this precious part of West Kerry.

Our final note relates to our hosts, Joanna and Ciaran. They have always made us feel so welcome. They continue to make improvements to the house and grounds and we always arrive to find a clean house with freshly made beds -much appreciated after the long drive from Dublin.

We would recommend this house to all.

“Ideal Summer House”
Reviewed August 21, 2015 for a stay in July 2015

Le Cheile is the ideal summer house - 5 minutes to the beautiful beach (Beal Ban), wonderful views of the sea and the mountains, in a peaceful location.
I have been renting this summer house for many years now and the fact that I keep going back speaks for itself. Joanna and Ciaran are great to deal with and friendly and welcoming when we arrive.
The house is comfortable, cosy but with plenty of space (4 bedrooms). It's a short drive to Ballyferriter village where there are two shops for basic provisions and newspapers, pubs for music and craic and even a Museum with a little cafe.

“location and accommodation excellent”
Reviewed August 9, 2015 for a stay in June 2015

we spent the first fortnight of june in the Le Cheile holiday home in Gorta Dubha, near Basllyferriter
The house is located less than ten minutes walk from Beal Ban strand which is very safe for children
The house itself is relatively new and is equipped with all "mod. cons"
The owners have obviously gone to considerable trouble in decorating the house
There is a first floor sitting/tv room with beautiful views of the sea and of the Brandon range of mountains on the horizon
The sitting room contains a wood burning stove which heats the room very quickly and was much appreciated on the cooler nights

“Location doesn't get much better than this!”
Reviewed August 2, 2015 for a stay in March 2015

I often visit this house when my parents rent it during the summer, so it seemed like the perfect place to celebrate my 30th birthday with some members of my family at the end of March this year. There is no beating the house for location - it is just a short stroll to the beach - and it's the last house on the road so there are amazing views.

There is plenty of space inside, with four bedrooms and two bathrooms. And when the fog rolls in (as it often does!) you can light a cosy fire in the sitting room or the kitchen. I'd recommend it to any group or family looking for a low-key holiday away from a hectic, internet-driven city life.

“Best holiday home we've ever rented”
Reviewed November 1, 2014 for a stay in September 2014

Five hill walking friends and I stayed in this lovely house for a week. The location is idyllic: within a short walk of Béal Bán beach, and a beach walk from Ballyferriter, where we enjoyed a number of great music sessions in the local pubs. This house was perfect: very spacious, with a very well equipped kitchen/living room. The upstairs sitting room was a real treat, with views of the coastline and real sense of home about it. We couldn't have asked for a better place to stay: within reach of Slea Head, Mount Brandon and Dingle town. The owner, Joanna, was a pleasure: so helpful before we arrived and upon arrival, with lots of very helpful tips re: the local area.

“Perfect location”
Reviewed October 22, 2014 for a stay in October 2014

It was our first trip to Dingle Peninsula and Le Cheile was a wonderful choice. Just 5 walk minutes from the beach and gorgeous views. The house was light and bright, the rooms large, beds comfortable and kitchen well stocked. We had a toddler with us and Joanna kindly left a travel cot and a stair gate for our use. The nearly beach was lovely and we were a quick drive to Dingle and many other beautiful spots. The kitchen was a little small for our 4 adults and 1 toddler because we like to cook a lot, but otherwise we would unreservedly recommend Le Cheile.

“A really, good holiday experience.”
Reviewed August 27, 2014 for a stay in July 2014

I should note that I know the general area really well, having vacationed west of Dingle each and every Summer for 41 years. My mother-in-law hailed from Fán. The location of Le Chéile is superb. The house is well designed and ideal for holidays. It is also suitably equipped with the kitchen, bedrooms and gardens in great order. The sitting room/television room was warm, and offered spectacular views of Béal Bán and An Mhuiríoch. The sofas in that room are too low and quite uncomfortable. Our pre-arrival and post-departure service from the owners was ecellent; We have already booked for next year, 2015.
