Overview

Overview

Photos and Description of this 2 bedroom holiday apartment in Kinsale - 2a Ardbrack Heights

Kinsale, Ardbrack Heights, waterfront, large balcony 2 double bedrooms

This wonderfully sunny holiday apartment is located in Kinsale's prestigious Ardbrack Heights in the village of Scilly, a ten-minute walk outside the town of Kinsale. The huge floor to ceiling, wall-to-wall windows allow amazing sea views from the master bedroom (breakfast in bed with a sea view!) and the entire sitting room/dining area. Outside, the sheltered balcony, which runs the entire width of the accommodation, is perfect for a relaxing drink whilst watching the sunset or the busy harbour activity.

The two bedrooms sleep four comfortably and the newly refurbished modern kitchen is fully fitted and ideal for a self catering holiday.

The only sounds you can hear from this property are on the water or the bird song, yet a short ten-minute stroll brings you into Kinsale centre. Kinsale is a popular holiday resort for Irish and foreign tourists which is known for its many gourmet restaurants and excellent leisure activities including yachting, sea angling, and golf.

Kinsale - sedate: Not only does this town lay claim to being the oldest town in Ireland, but it is also renowned internationally for the number and quality of restaurants in the town. It is hailed as the gourmet capital of Ireland, with no shortage of pubs and restaurants to suit every taste. However relaxed or active you wish to be on your holiday Kinsale allows you to take things at your own pace.

Kinsale - Active: Sailing, Harbour Trips, Fishing and whale watching, Golf, Horse Riding, Shooting, Archery, Paintball, Windsurfing and water sports - Walking and Historical Visits - Museums and Forts Leisure - Pottery Workshops - Readings - Taxi and bus tours.

Kinsale History: The Battle of Kinsale, fought in 1601 between a combined Spanish, an Irish force and English armies, was a turning point in Irish history. The harbour is guarded by two very fine star-shaped fortresses built in the 17th century: Charles Fort is well worth a visit (guided tours). See also the old Courthouse, now a museum; St Multose Church, built in the 13th century and still in use, and 'French Prison', the 16th century Desmond Castle. There is a signposted tourist trail to this fascinating town with a guide booklet. Take a trip too to the Old Head of Kinsale for magnificent cliff scenery. It was off here that the Lusitania was sunk in 1915 with a loss of over 1,500 lives.

Fabulous Views -Restful and Fun Vacation!

  • 5 out of 5
We had the best time in Kinsale! What a beautiful town and friendly, helpful people. The restaurants were terrific- We loved Man Friday just down the hill and The Bulman on the Scilly walk. The property itself was beautiful, clean and well-maintained and stocked. We were thrilled to find oatmeal bread, sliced cheese and red and white wine when we arrived. Although the construction was still ongoing upstairs, the contractor was very kind and kept the noise level insignificant when he knew we were home. He asked us to call up to him on coming and going and was extremely polite. Although the uphill walk is a little rigorous, this holiday home is worth every penny. Thanks, Minnie!!

Exquisite view & apartment

Exquisite view & apartment
  • 4 out of 5
77560ha. Kinsale

We chose this apartment because it looked really inviting and we knew the view would be exquisite. We thought it would be the perfect place to be...quiet, incredible views plus a nice walking path by the water and a beautiful place to stay. We weren't disappointed. We took tons of photos, loved eating meals looking at the sea, the ships, the lovely town of  Kinsale. 
We splurged, spending more than we normally do because this was our second visit to Kinsale and we had fond memories from 18 years before. Our plan was to stay a week.
Midway through the week, the construction upstairs began. This is when it's nice to have an on-site landlord or contact. We had neither. E-mail was our means of communication; and while the wifi was great, we didn't plan to have to deal with upstairs construction. The owner upstairs was quite nice, but she was eager to get her remodeling done, too...and for several days the noise continued. Of course, for much of the day we were out and about, but it's not fun to come home to banging...so, be forewarned. This view and this apartment are both exquisite...but until August....the noise will probably continue. 8-15 May 2014

Owner's Response: We are delighted to hear you had such a great time in Kinsale. I am not an on-site landlord and this is made clear from the start of any booking as my address is on correspondence showing that I live in the UK. My phone number which is displayed on the website is also always given on emails and correspondence. When you emailed me late on Friday afternoon to let me know that the helpful builder upstairs had shown you how to work a washing machine, I replied within 90 minutes and contacted the upstairs owner as I was unaware of any builders being present.

I have been assured by her that the noisy work has been completed and any fitting work has and will be undertaken only during normal working hours when most visitors are out and about. I felt it was very generous of her to recompense you in the way that she did.

Absolutely wonderful view

  • 5 out of 5
What an absolute treat to stay in this apartment. We have been to Kinsale many times and always took a photograph from the road at the back of the Ardbrack apartments. To spend a week waking up every morning to the ever changing, beautiful harbour was a real treat. The apartment was spotlessly clean, well equipped, comfortable and such a good location. With such a commanding view there is a price to pay. Our party were all of medium fitness and we managed the climb up the hill with no problems.The town itself has lots to offer people of all ages and interests. In summer it is always busy with lots going on in the pubs and in the harbour. Parking is difficult so if we didn't fancy the climb back home or had shopping to carry we took the car and parked it on the harbour side at the bottom of the hill where spaces were always available. Minnie was helpful and accomodating and a pleasure to deal with. We loved it so much we are planning a return next year. Can't recommend it highly enough. A superb week was had by all four of us. The only problem was fighting over who had the bedroom with the view. We lost - but next year....

Fantastic outlook across the Bandon River.

  • 5 out of 5
Kinsale has always been a favourite holiday destination of ours and this apartment is is without doubt the best we have stayed in. The estuary and harbour views are spectacular especially in the early morning sunshine which we were blessed with for the entire week.

You are close enough to the town, although after eating out (Hoby's a particular favourite) a taxi was needed to get back up the hill, the Spaniard is close though and has a good pub menu.

The apartment is spacious and well equipped the WiFi was faster than I am used to at home, only complaint I never found the remote for the satellite TV, still with that view who cares.

This is a fab place to stay in Kinsale - the view is fantastic and is interesting all day long. The apartment is quiet and clean and the beds are really comfortable. An easy walk to town, restaurants and pubs. Highly recommended!

Rooms with a view!

  • 4 out of 5
We had a wonderful week in this apartment with the most beautiful views of Kinsale. My mother's family hail from here and so the town has always had a place in my heart. Ardbrack Heights is a spectacular location with easy walking access via the lower road to Summercove and Charles Fort and in the other direction to the town centre and harbour. We only used the car to explore further afield in West Cork. We enjoyed fabulous food at Fishy Fishy (twice!), Jim Edwards and The Spaniard. Given the horrendous summer we are having even the weather was kind with the rain only ruling out play for one morning. Thoroughly recommend the Old Head at Kinsale for bird life and we also spotted a basking shark. The welcome pack was a nice touch. Would love to return one day.
