About Mark Houston
We have lived adjacent to these cottages since 1999 and have been operating them as holiday lets since 2000. We have been subscribers to HomeAway and its forerunners all this time. We are usually around during your stay should you need assistance but the cottages are completely independent of our own house and we try to be as discreet as possible!
Mark Houston purchased this Cottage in 2002
Why Mark Houston chose Scilly
Both cottages are located in Scilly, a village-like community 7 minutes walk from Kinsale town centre. Kinsale gets very busy in peak season so Scilly offers a quiet respite from the bustle in town while being within easy walking distance. We also have off-street parking which is a big benefit as parking in town can be hard to find when the town is busy in the summer months. The Spaniard Pub and Man Friday restaurant are within 1 minute walk of the cottages; 2 of the best pubs/restaurants in town!
100% refund for cancellations more than 60 days before check-in date.
Marian Cottage- Provided more than expected
Marian Cottage and the village of Kinsale were more than described accurately. Our stay in early April 08 allowed our spirits to be rejuvenated, by a village and accommodation that provided much more than we had expected. Marian Cottage is situated at the top of Scilly Hill, which is an easy walk into the village (although there are some steps) There is a great pub opposite (The Spaniard) which provides wholesome meals. Although Marian Cottage has more than enough amenities for the gourmet traveller with quality local produce being readily available. For those who enjoy their privacy Marien Cottage has a secluded courtyard, although it would be difficult to forgo the spectacular views provided from the (secret garden) access from the grounds of Scilly House. The property is very clean and well maintained, we will be recommending Marien Cottage to our family, friends & Colleagues.
I would like to add on a personal note that the owner Mark provided a service above what might normally be expected. We had been waiting on documents to arrive by mail from Australia on our departure from Kinsale they had yet to arrive. Mark drove a 40 minute round trip to Cork Airport to deliver the documents that had arrived not long after we had left. What a champion!
Charming Quintessential Ireland
This cottage surpassed our expectations. I would love to return and book a longer stay.
Fantastic place, great welcome

Accommodation was v good - there are 3 houses beside each other so great for families. Short walk to kinsale
Had a wonderful time in Marion cottage at Kinsale.
Had a wonderful time in Marion cottage at Kinsale. Mark is a great host, very understanding and very accommodating. The cottage itself is pleasantly cozy and in spite of being near the road very quiet. You cannot be any closer to both Man Fridays and the Spaniard, and then an easy walk into town. Try Bastian for a lovely dinner. A+++ in every way.
A perfect base for our one week stay
The cottage is very well appointed, warm and welcoming after a day's walking out. Superb location for the town, getting out into West Cork and also for walks out to the forts and harbour and ocean views. We would definitely stay again
