Fabulous with amazing views

5 of 5
This is a beautiful apartment with amazing views and there's always something to watch - the balcony is perfect for a few drinks in the evening. It has a comfortable bed, again with a view that makes you not want to get up - there is another bedroom without views. The shower room has a good shower and a heated floor, a nice treat in Winter I'm sure. The kitchen is well equipped with all the essentials although I can't remember seeing oil, if you're going to cook in - we didn't. The walk into the centre takes about 10 minutes but longer coming back as its a long haul uphill but no problem if you're fit. The Spaniard is the nearest bar/restaurant and is very good. Man Friday is close to the Spaniard but is a restaurant I prefer in Winter as it gets too crowded in a good summer. Bulmans on the way to Charles Fort is also a great bar/restaurant. We had great meals in Bastion and in Max's, a good meal in Jim Edwards but we found Finn's Table disappointing this time. Best to book for all restaurants. There is a large waste bin where cars park which operates with a key and holds anything it seems without any thought of recycling. If you are a mad recycler, there is a large recycling centre on the way out of town past the Supervalu store on the R605. The Supervalu store is excellent. I wouldn't hesitate to return to this apartment when we next hit Kinsale.

Arundel House was perfect for us!

5 of 5
We were happy with Arundel house in Kinsale. The house was quite large, offered our 3 couples their own private space, and yet we had a great dining room and living room to use as a group. The place was clean and kitchen was well stocked with dishes and condiments. The best part is it's less than 5 minute walk to the town center down the hill. Just a note - the house is very old but updated somewhat. Thank you Carmen.
