Dúinín House is situated on the Conor Pass Road approximately 1km from the centre of Dingle. We are about a 3 minute drive from the Conor Pass, Ireland’s highest mountain Pass. The views from the Pass are spectacular (Conor Pass Views). Dúinín House overlooks Dingle town and harbour and is directly opposite the townland of Hollywood or, in Gaelic, Cuilleannach. The restaurants and bars of Dingle town are a 2 minute drive way. There is free, safe car-parking available. Though close to town, the house is set in the heart of the countryside and the local farmers tend their sheep and cattle or till the land, especially in Spring and Autumn, their busiest time of year.
There are 5 en-suite bedrooms in Dúinín House – 3 double rooms and 2 twin rooms. A double room contains 1 double bed (5′ x 6’6″); A twin room contains 2 single beds (3′ x 6’3″). All rooms have private bathrooms containing washhand basin, shower and toilet. All rooms are equipped with television, tea and coffee making facilities, hairdryer and shaving socket. Adaptors are available from the hosts just in case the electrical fittings are not compatible.
The best views from are from the conservatory/dining/lounge area, which is for the use of all our guests. In the foreground, Dingle town with its square church belfry is just a kilometre away, nestling on the north shore of Dingle harbour. Across the harbour is Burnham Hill topped by Eask Tower, constructed during the Great Famine of 1846 – 49 to provide relief work for the local, starving population. Beyond Burnham and Eask tower, mighty Mount Eagle fills the Western sky, with Marhin Peak on its right and Inish Vickillane, the most southerly of the Blasket Island group, peeping over its left flank.
In the main lounge, guests can sit and watch all the channels which are currently available on satellite – RTE, Sky and BBC. Complimentary Tea or coffee is available in the conservatory on arrival.
