Our Home For Exchange

Description of the home we are offering for exchange

Shanti Path, built 2006, is a timber framed, bright 3-bedroomed detached house on half an acre of land on the beautiful Dingle Peninsula. There are 3 bedrooms - two double-bedrooms and 1 twin-bedroom. I also have a yoga room in the house which, when it's not being used, can be turned into a very big bedroom ideal for kids.
The house is very bright and spacious and looks over the beautiful Annascaul Valley in the centre of the Dingle Peninsula.
There is a half acre garden with a small pond and a vegetable allotment (if I get to do any planting this year!) and the views from the house and garden are stunning. The beaches are just minutes away as are the mountains and Annascaul Lake. There are lots of walks close by without the use of a car, or with a car you can go to the fishing town of Dingle and West and North from there to explore the treasures of the peninsula.
The house is wheelchair friendly.

Neighbourhood

Description of our neighbourhood and surrounding area

The house is in a rural area on a hill overlooking the Annascaul Valley and surrounding mountains and hills. The sea is just 3 kms away at Bun an OIr which is great for fishing; swimming at 5 km-long Inch beach and Minard Beach (with historic Minard Castle and boulder beach) both of which are 7 kms away. Annascaul Lake is 3kms away, Annascaul Village 3 kms away, Dingle 13 kms, Tralee 25 kms, Killarney about 40kms.
Farranacarraige is a quiet, farming townland with stunning views, on the backroad to Dingle. From the house you can walk to the village, to the lake and mountains without going onto the main road.
There are several pubs in the village of Annascaul, 2 of which serve food. There are several places to eat at Inch beach, which is a great place for walking, swimming, surfing and other beach activities. Minard beach is less touristic - ideal for families and my favourite place to swim, especially from the pier.
Dingle is a thriving town with lots to do & see.
