Our beautiful Gardener's lodge is a first floor apartment, set in a large and private mature organic terraced garden with many fruit trees, organic vegetables, herbs and salads.
To enjoy the stunning harbour view from your bedroom there is no need to get out of the beautifully handcrafted king size bed, as it is designed for you to look straight at the sea, which you also do from the kitchen and living room windows.
Gardener's Lodge is very private and just a few meters above the sea. There is access to the sea, but the nearest sandy beach is a 5 min drive away. Within walking distance to all amenities in Kinsale.
It has it's own terrace on which on sunny days you can enjoy the sunshine from morning until sunset, it faces south/west.
The lodge is a stand alone property in our extensive terraced gardens right next to the sea.
It comprises of two bedrooms, one double and one full size bunk bed for two. Large kitchen, living area with wood burning stove, all wood supplied.
Great deck space with sun all day for a BBQ (supplied) or just relaxing and taking in the views.
Originally from Kinsale, but then grew up in Germany, returned to Ireland in 1991.

We are in a very sheltered position, it is a real suntrap.
Very private, peaceful and unique.
We originally stayed in Gardeners Lodge in June 2013 having booked through a different channel hence the delay in submitting a review on this site. The cottage is in a wonderful location with everything for a relaxing holiday. Diana and Myke are excellent hosts and the delivery of freshly baked bread within an hour of our arrival was a love!y surprise. If we had the time to spend the whole summer here, we would block book the Lodge without hesitation but will have to be content with another holiday in June 2015.
We stayed at the seaside lodge for valentines weekend and wished we had longer. A great welcome from Diana and Mike who live in the main house just 100 yards away, spotless comfortable accommodation with our own private deck overlooking the water (Robinson Crusoe Style), beautiful views from the property which nestles into the hillside. The weather wasn't perfect but this was a very sheltered little sun trap and we sat on the deck with our wine and watched the early evening sunset until it got a bit too chilly to be outside. Then went inside and loaded the wood burner with some logs that Mike left for us and snuggled in by the fire to finish our wine - sheer bliss!!
Kinsale is a great little town with lots to do - we love to walk and there was no shortage of interesting places to go - a local fellow offers historic walks which I hear are captivating but we didn't manage to fit that in - and apparently there is a ghost tour on offer too !! The restaurants and great pubs are in abundance so it was difficult to choose. We like the food in The White House and went there twice.
The road to our accommodation is along the seafront and a beautiful spot for an after dinner stroll back from the restaurant. I think we stayed at the very best location in Kinsale - close enough to reach the centre of town by a 10 minute stroll and far enough to get peace and a quiet for a good nights sleep with the added bonus of being right on the sea front. All in, a great place that I would recommend.
First class accommodation with views to die for, one of the finest places to stay in the world not just Ireland. Excellent hosts and a beautiful location. Highly recommended with first class service
