It is very well equipped, had everything we needed, down to soap, shower gel, washing up liquid dishwasher tabs, washing machine tabs, paper towels, toilet paper, coffee, tea, etc. Our 13 and 9 year old boys enjoyed it, too, they had a room each. The location is perfect, very close to restaurants, shops, pubs, all within walking distance. Margie had a bottle of wine and some biscuits ready for us when we arrived, which is a very nice personal touch. There is a folder in the apartment with very detailed explanations of how everything works. The apartment is very clean, we would highly recommend it. Thank you.

We all had a lovely time and the welcome from Laura along with the yummy homemade biscuits gave us a brilliant start to our holiday. The Speckled Door pub a few yds away was very friendly and did a really good value Sunday lunch. Unfortunately we were too early in the year to sample food there in the evenings as they were only doing lunches. They even provided some toys for my Grandson and some basic food to get us started. Thank you very much Laura and Yvonne.

Bedrooms are a great size with lots of storage, and beds are super-comfy! This contemporary Townhouse has everything you need to make your stay great. Very easy to find, free parking right outside and only minutes to the centre of Kinsale and all it has to offer - absolutely ideal in every way, we were delighted - what's not to love!!
