The apartment is very nice, clean and spacious, nice furnished, has everything and its very quite. We did not cook, nor wash, as its a short walk into town, (ca 15 min) either on the road or just in front of the apartments are the steps that lead into the Scilly walk that brings you either into town to many very good restaurants or to Charles Fort and from there going further is a small path, passing a boat yard, through woods, fern, beautiful landscape till the end and you have in front of you the open sea. We loved our stay and would return to the apartment and to Kinsale. The town is very colorful, the people are very nice and friendly, many restaurants and pubs to chose from, very very good food and a very good service. Also there is every hour a Bus into Cork.

It was spacious, clean and well equipped and easily accommodated our party. The owners were very helpful running up to our stay and we could not fault anything. It is situated in a beautiful spot in rural West Cork. It was very comfortable and was certainly like staying in your own home. We have stayed in other rental properties in West Cork that are quite basic in terms of furniture, kitchen equipment, bedding etc. I would highly recommend staying here.
