The cottage caters for four people with two upstairs bedrooms, bedroom 1 has a double bed and bedroom two has two single beds. Downstairs the is an open plan living/dining room with turf burning stove, a small fully equipped kitchen and a bathroom inclusive of shower. The cottage is built of stone which lends it to be very cosy, there are electric radiators in the bedrooms and a turf/solid fuel burning stove in the living room (Starter fuel provided) There is a lovely peaceful back garden with a Valentia slate seat looking out over Dingle bay.
Cul cottage is owned by the Lynch family and run by Gerard and Derarca who both work as Nurses in the local area.
