An Ri;asc is situated on the Dingle Way, just off the Slea Head Drive and close to the foot of Mount Brandon. The house has four bedrooms, all of which have an en-suite with a shower and one has a bath with a shower. Each bedroom also has its own tv with terrestial channels. The guest lounge has satellite television with a basic Sky package. Guests are invited to explore the original Irish artwork which adorn the walls of the house, several of these paintings are scenes from around the Dingle Peninsula.
The food served at the guest house is carefully selected and prepared. A four course evening meal can be prepared for guests but 24 hour notice must be given beforehand. Most of the vegetables come from the organic garden, others are sourced locally and in-season. Vegetarian dishes are a speciality. In the morning, there is a choice of breakfast from the à la carte menu and are each is prepared as it is ordered. Bread and scones are freshly baked and all juices are also freshly squeezed.
Irish is the first language spoken at the house but everyone is perfectly happy to converse with guests in English. Lessons can be given at various levels for groups of 2-8 people. Walkers not from Ireland may be interested in getting a basic lesson to help bring to life all of the local place-names that are found on the map. Please enquire about the cost of such lessons. Another course worth considering is a cookery demonstration. Groups of 2-8 people can learn various recipes for baking.
Dingle Way Walkers who would like to spend an extra day in the area have many options for other activities to get involved in. An Riasc would be happy to help organise these. These include an guided walking tour of the area; a self-guided walk of the Pilgrims Route or Cosán na Naomh; a self-guided tour on a hired bicycle; a boat trip to the Blasket Islands from Dunquin; kayaking with Funghi the Dolphin from Dingle.
