Murphy's Cottages


Situated on a working farm, Murphy’s Cottages are two beautiful homes boasting superb views of Ventry Bay. Situated one mile from Ventry village and just 5 miles from bustling Dingle town. The cottages are beautifully furnished throughout, it makes the perfect base for touring Kerry. There is so much to do locally from visiting the aquarium in Dingle, a trip to the Blasket Islands, seeing Fungi the dolphin or driving to the Killarney Lakes and the Ring of Kerry.

Your visit wouldn't be complete without a visit to Rathanane Castle. The 15th century castle is situated inside an ancient ringfort built between 300-1000AD and is situated just a stone throw from the cottages. The cottages have direct access to the castle and ringfort, situated on Murphy's private land.

Ventry is a great place to enjoy a relaxing seaside break, or to just escape the bustle of a busy town. Here you will find one of the most attractive and safe Blue Flag beaches on the West Coast of Ireland, where swimming, surfing, canoeing and sunbathing can be enjoyed by all who visit. The area surrounding Ventry is a walker’s paradise. This is really an ideal place to stay at any time. With the coast so close, and the country on your doorstep, you really can enjoy the best of both worlds from these delightful cottages.
