Fantastic view

5 of 5
We had a very nice stay, very happy to have found this beautiful apartment with its stunning view. 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.

Perfect!

5 of 5
This place was exactly as advertised. I liked the open flow downstairs and the four bedrooms upstairs were perfect for the six (four adults and two kids) of us. The staff were extremely helpful. We took the kids to the hotel pool on several occasions and it was a nice bonus to be able to utilize the hotel amenities while we enjoyed our stay. The playground area was fantastic, too. Our two kids (3 & 5) used the playground daily. The proximity, via car, to the City center as well as Cobh and Middleton was great, too. We also spent a day at the wildlife park and that place is a gem! Simply put, this was a fantastic place at a fantastic area with fantastic staff. I will definitely recommend this place and will definitely stay there again.
