About Margie or Alana

We moved to Ireland in 2006 but fell in love with Kinsale in 2000. We are both educators, Alana at the doctoral level is a PhD professor and mentor and Margie works with younger learners. We own and manage our rental apartment and love being active locally. Alana grew up in Denver, Colorado and Margie was born and raised in San Francisco, California. We come from large extended families and love to play, travel and explore as well as work and participate in our local community.

Margie or Alana purchased this apartment in 2003

Why Margie or Alana chose Kinsale

We purchased this property because of its location. We wished to have an apartment for family visitors as well as for paying guests. Over 850 people have stayed in the apartment since we opened our apartment as a 'home away from home'.

What makes this apartment unique

The apartment is homey, exceptionally clean and very well fitted, in particlar the kitchen and living room amenities. It has all the extras of a home - wifi, books, dvds, satellite tv, stereo, fireplace and games as well.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Wow! What a relaxing visit and wonderful town. The apartment was compact and had everything we needed.

Perfect apartment in the perfect location

  • 5 of 5

The apartment is absolutely perfect in every way and Maggie is a dream to work with. The location is amazing, right in the middle of everything, yet quiet at night. Maggie has thought of everything and is ready and willing to help at a moments notice. We are traveling on a year long adventure around the world and are staying in rentals everywhere we go so we have a lot to compare against. I can highly recommend this apartment to anyone.

Lovely Kinsale Apartment

  • 5 of 5

Lovely apartment position right in the heart of town so no need to have to walk far. The apartment is spotlessly clean and equipped with everything you need for a weekend stay or a full fortnight holiday. Margie is very friendly and helpful should you need anything.

Lovely town center apartment

  • 5 of 5

This apartment is ideally designed. 3 separate bedrooms with comfortable beds and 2 1/2 baths making it easy for each couple to have their own space. Kitchen/dining/living area is on the small side, but perfectly laid out to provide everything we needed. The furnishings are tasteful and the apartment was very clean. Being located right in town was really nice to be able to walk to shops and restaurants. The best part, however, were the kind and thoughtful owners. Margie went out of her way to make sure we got the help we needed with a problem we were having with our global cell phone. For a small charge, she also provides a cell phone for her guests who do not travel with one.

Kinsale Apartment

  • 5 of 5

The apartment is spotless, well-appointed and convenient for walking to all

attractions in Kinsale. Our second visit to Kinsale and the Kinsale Apartment was as wonderful as expected and being in Kinsale at the height of the tourist season was exciting. There is something for everyone in this beautiful town and the Kinsale Apartment is affordable, centrally located and the best self-catering property in which we have ever stayed - a real home-away-from-home. God willing, we will return one day soon.
