Spacious Clean and well equipped. Perfect location for kinsale.

5 of 5
Excellent place to stay right in kinsale with a 2 min walk to shops restaurants and pubs. Easy free parking on road if more than 1 car . Rooms were very clean and lots of nice touches to make it feel like home. The beanbag the size of a bed in the lounge was very popular. !! The kitchen was large and airy with a big dining table and so much cupboard space. Loads of equipment and at least twice as many plates dishes mugs and cutlery than the 9 people it caters for. Carmen left shampoos etc in bathrooms very handy if on hand luggage and also washing up liquid dishwasher tablets and clothes washing gel. The steakhouse was wonderful and Dinos fish and chip supper proved popular and some great little pubs. It is only about 20 minutes from cork airport and 35 from cork centre (handy for Ed Sheeran)We had a wonderful 4 days. Thank you Carmen for all the help before we arrived as well. Can't recommend this place highly enough. Only thing we missed was a full size cheese grater!!

Immaculate with all mod cons

5 of 5
The house was really lovely. There was nothing that we needed that wasn't provided. A two minute walk from a bar with a really good restaurant attached, by the pier. It was a wonderful base to explore East Cork. We particularly enjoyed Cobh especially the escape rooms at Escapade. I would have no hesitation in recommending this property to anyone.
