Kinsale studio: self-catering,1 bedroom,1 bathroom. Private and quiet..
A private and spacious studio apartment in Kinsale with its own entrance, patio and parking area - with wireless broadband and satellite multichannel TV.
It is attached to the owners house, but completely separate, in a peaceful location in a large, quiet garden with no traffic noise.
An easy walk to Kinsale town centre with all its cafes and restaurants (10-12 minutes). We are just twenty minutes drive from Cork airport and thirty minutes from the ferry port.
The studio is an ideal base for a holiday in Kinsale with its angling, sailing and golf, or just to relax. Convenient for day trips to explore West Cork and Kerry.

Dingle is an OK drive for a full day's touring - we recently drove there, climbed Mount Brandon, had a swim and drove back in an easy enough day.
A trip to Skellig Michael is highly recommended and within the scope of a day trip.
Sea angling day trips and evening whale watching are available from Kinsale pier.
