Although many accommodations in An Daingean are cottagelike, the Kavanagh family chose the grander Georgian style, setting a tone of quiet, unostentatious luxury in this spacious, yellow, mansard-roof home on the water's edge. There are more than 185 pieces of original Irish art in the house from the family's private collection. Relax on the goose-down-filled velvet sofas in front of the drawing room's open fire while sipping a drink from the honor bar. Guest rooms are
large, with sitting areas in the bay windows. Each one is color-themed to a local wildflower, with plush carpets, Regency-stripe drapes, and Victorian antiques. Power showers, sunken baths, and speakers in the bathroom encourage indulgence. It's a short, water's-edge walk into town to sample Dingle's famous seafood.
