Minnie is very efficient and very pleasant so it's easy to organise a great break in Kinsale - you won't be disappointed.The apartment is well equipped -though the furniture could probably to with updating. There are a few flights to steps to negotiate to access the apartment, so not ideal for those with young toddlers or with mobility issues but on the plus side there is easy parking - a real premium in Kinsale during the summer, and spectacular views from the balcony - just have a look at the pics. We had another great holiday at Ardbrack Heights and will definitely return. Thanks Minnie!

It's beautifully decorated and tastefully furnished, with sizeable rooms and an especially comfy/spacious kitchen/living area (bigger than it looks in the photos). It's just a short 3-minute walk to the centre of Kinsale (head of the marina and the Tourist Info office) but nice and quiet too. We particularly loved the wonderful pictures around the apartment (beautiful photos of birds). Gerardine was always helpful and on hand to answer questions. Would definitely stay again and recommend to others.
