About the property

Scilly House Rentals

We are redeveloping the Chart House from September 2017 to live in ourselves so we are not renting Cara's Cottage or Marian Cottage while the building work is on-going as they are adjacent. Please bear with us as we plan on improving both the other cottages too! Please get in touch if you would like to rent either Cara's or Marian Cottage after September 2018. WWW.HOLIDAYHOUSESINIRELAND.COM

Marian Cottage and Cara's Cottage are in the grounds to Scilly House, a period property overlooking the harbour and dating back to 1760. They can be rented together or individually for thos who want to enjoy the extensive leisure facilities available locally or the many friendly pubs and restaurants that have led to Kinsale being called the Goumet Capital of Ireland. All 3 properties are a 7 minutes' walk from Kinsale town centre where you will find many interesting shops, art galleries and museums. The properties have off-street parking and free WiFi. A mobile phone is also available free of charge if required..

Cara's Cottage sleeps 4. 2 bedrooms. 1.5 baths. Master en-suite. Glimpses of the harbour from living room. Patio garden.

Marian Cottage. Sleeps 2+1 on sofa bed. Studio layout. Large bathroom with claw foot bath and separate power shower. Patio garden suntrap.

Kinsale:: Winner of European prize for Tourism and the Environment, Entente Florale, National Tidy Town, Gourmet Capital - one of Ireland's oldest towns, with narrow streets and many historic buildings to explore; all sheltered by a beautiful harbour.

Museums, historic forts, art galleries, craft shops, not to mention the 40+ bars and restaurants that give Kinsale its reputation for good food and that Irish only phenomenon called 'craic'. Oh, and the Guinness is good too!

For the active: Choose from 3 golf courses including the spectacular and world renowned Links at The Old Head of Kinsale, deep-sea fishing, sailing or perhaps a harbour cruise. Maybe spend a day at one of the many 'empty' beaches nearby or perhaps visit the Norman built 12th century church of St Multose and 15th century Desmond Castle which houses the International Musem of Wine, or the twin 17th century forts guarding the entrance to the harbour to learn about our town that is one of the oldest in Ireland.

Whatever is for you, you will find it here in Kinsale.

Getting here: Is easy with direct flights to Cork from most UK and many European airports. Coming from America? Cork is only a 3 hours car journey from Dublin and 2 hours from Shannon Airport.

If you're arriving by car Cork Ferryport, serving Roscoff in France, is only 14 miles away.

And finally, as our properties are in the grounds of Scilly House we are on hand if you need us. Just ask!

July 2017 Week

  • 5 of 5

Cara's Cottage - Enjoying top notch food and having been to Kinsale a few times, Mark & Dianes cottages are truly ideal for exploring this great little harbour town and eateries. Second time with Mark & Diane, exceeds all expectations. Moderately priced within the tourist budget. Position is great if you can manage a slight incline. Facilities are absolutely great. The Spaniard pub, over the road is top drawer. Great vibrant place. Makes you think that you are 'really' in Ireland. As we have traveled extensively over the years, we recommend these cottages highly. No faults at all! Thankyou Mark & Diane for enabling us to have another great time.

Home Away From Home

  • 5 of 5

This was our second visit to Kinsale. After spending only two days two years ago we decided to stay two weeks this time which still turned out to be too short of a time in Kinsale - maybe our next stay should be two months.

The Chart House is in the perfect location - 5 minute walk into town. We would walk into town at least twice a day to eat, shop or simply admire this quaint town. The facilities in the house were perfect. We were able to prepare several delicious meals. The garden area is lovely and enjoyed eating out on the terrace a couple days. We looked forward to enjoying the sunroom, especially at tea time.

Mark was a wonderful host - made sure we had everything we needed.

A. Little Bit of Paradise

  • 5 of 5

We have been staying at Mark Houston's properties for almost 12 years. Each stay has been excellent. He is a great, hospitable host. Fresh flowers are always nice upon arrival. Each property is well maintained, clean, fullfurnished, and include a washer and dryer. The beds are extremely comfortable and linens fresh and soft. The kitchens have everything needed for all cooking needs. The location is perfect and it is easy to get to the village for shopping. The Spaniard, an awesome pub and restaurant are steps away. One can't go wrong staying at any of the 3 properties depending on how many are in your party. Headed to Kinsale, don't miss this "little bit of paradise".

Lost count of how many times we've stayed here. Always a friendly greeting, clean and comfortable accommodation. There is everything you could possibly need supplied in the house. We'll be back again in August. Thanks Mark & Dianne!

Kinsale is situated on the south coast of Ireland, at the start of the Wild Atlantic Way, and just 15 miles from Cork and its International Airport. The town is the gateway to the wonderful countryside of West Cork and is famous for its gourmet reputation. Pub and restaurant within a minutes walk. Walk to town centre in 5 minutes, to find many many others. Charles Fort, museums and other historic sites all within walking distance. Beaches and sporting activities, including sailing, kayaking, horse riding and golf are only a few minutes drive away.
