Excellent location and terrific property

  • 5 of 5

We stayed the month of May 2017. Location is short walking distance to most of Kinsale. The White Lady Pub is only a two minute walk. The property is totally up to date and spotless. Michelle and Dave are very responsive to any questions a guest might have. Highly Recommended.

Superb property. Excellent location in town.

  • 5 of 5

The property was spotless and very comfortably furnished - more of a well-loved home rather than a holiday let.

Fantastic Holiday Home by the sea!

  • 5 of 5

I brought my parents and children to this beautiful period home in Kinsale to celebrate their 50th wedding anniversary. Michelle could not have been more welcoming and helpful as we planned this trip from America. The home is spotless, comfortable for teenagers and elderly alike, and perfectly appointed. If you want a home in Kinsale, only a short stroll to the harbor or the many wonderful restaurants and pubs, then "57" is your place.

Thank you, Michelle! We will be back!

Fantastic location, lovely home!

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed a perfect weeklong stay here in March on a family trip to Ireland. The house location was ideal - walkable to shops and restaurants (Steakhouse across the street was fabulous!), so everyone could do their own thing and meet up afterward. Home itself was lovely and very comfortable. Lift was great for getting luggage to the bedrooms (and when older knees needed a rest after a day of touring). Kitchen was very well-equipped and furnishings all very comfortable. Will definitely plan a return here when time allows!

Delightful property

  • 5 of 5

The house was fabulous and just as shown in the photos. My husband and I were on our own for 3 nights then joined by two other couples and the 3 double beds (plus one extra escape single) all with en-suite baths was a perfect situation. The house is very roomy and with great facilities. It is located very close to the harbor and the center of town. The garage was very useful. We had a really great time and would stay there again. The owners were most helpful.
