Quaint cottage near the Connor Pass. Beautiful views of the mountains and ocean. Easy access to Dingle, Slea Head Loop, and Ring of Kerry. We loved staying in this quiet location. There is a little hike to a lake nearby which was beautiful. Micheal and Veronica were so kind and had a fire laid so we could stay warm on cold nights.
Great you enjoyed your stay and all the family were comfortable in cottage while storm Hannagh in force but managed to enjoy trips around Slea head Ring of Kerry and strole into nearby lake.
We would love to welcome you all back at a future date

The home was as advertised. Everything was clean, comfortable and well equipped. We were two couples and the layout afforded plenty of space and privacy. The owner, Veronica,met us upon arrival and was a pleasure to chat with. We cooked several meals at the home as well eating out at the friendly little pub(O’Connors) in the little town of Cloghane.

Fantastic vacation site
We stayed for 2 weeks at this wonderful cottage in what we thought was the most scenic part of Ireland. The views from the cottage are breath-taking and we enjoyed being on the northern side of the Dingle peninsula, which is less "touristy". Cloghane is a nifty little village a short 5-minute ride away where we ate dinner a couple of times at O'Connor's pub/restaurant; the food was delicious. (If you attend the local ceilidh in Cloghane, come prepared to sing a song!) We also had a great meal in nearby Stradbally (Tomasins); a little farther away, in Castlegregory, are several great restaurants we enjoyed and a Spar for grocery shopping. We also enjoyed renting bikes at Castlegregory, although I would be a little leery of biking on roads in other parts of Ireland.
We needed every bit of our 2 weeks to savor the Dingle peninsula. We hiked twice behind the cottage through sheep pastures to one of many loughs (lakes), again out at Brandon Point, and along multiple beaches. Tralee (40 min drive) is the capital of Kerry (nice museum) and the rose capitol of Ireland; we enjoyed a Siamsa Tire performance of Irish song and dance there. In that direction also is Killarney National Park and the Muckross estate. Or, you can go south through the Conor Pass (an adventure all by itself) to the town of Dingle (touristy) and out along the Slea Head drive. We picnicked there, went to the Blasket Island Information Center and, on a different day, took the boat to Great Blasket Island, which was fascinating.
Scorid Cottage itself is very comfortable and Veronica was very hospitable, greeting us with fresh scones and jam. We took one of the downstairs bedrooms (there are 2) with its own bath. We also used the tub in the upstairs bath, which has two additional bedrooms. The kitchen was well equipped.
An Irish custom that requires some forethought is that electricity is expensive and oil and electricity is metered and charged at the end of the rental period (this was true for other rentals, as well). We were conservative in our usage and it only cost us about 15 euros per week; a large group who indulge themselves in lots of hot water or heat can expect a much higher tab.
Overall, we had a wonderful time at Scorid Cottage and would highly recommend it. The cows and sheep right next door were a bonus. A regret is that we were too late in the year for the lambs.
