About Margie or Alana

We moved to Ireland in 2006 but fell in love with Kinsale in 2000. We are both educators, Alana at the doctoral level is a PhD professor and mentor and Margie works with younger learners. We own and manage our rental apartment and love being active locally. Alana grew up in Denver, Colorado and Margie was born and raised in San Francisco, California. We come from large extended families and love to play, travel and explore as well as work and participate in our local community.

Margie or Alana purchased this apartment in 2003

Why Margie or Alana chose Kinsale

We purchased this property because of its location. We wished to have an apartment for family visitors as well as for paying guests. Over 1100 people have stayed in the apartment since we opened our apartment as a 'home away from home' ten years ago in March 2006.

What makes this apartment unique

The apartment is homey, exceptionally clean and very well fitted, in particlar the kitchen and living room amenities. It has all the extras of a home - wifi, books, dvds, satellite tv, stereo, fireplace and games as well.

KINSALE LOVELY

  • 5 of 5

THIS KINSALE APARTMENT WAS PERFECT FOR OUR NEEDS. GREAT LOCATION WITH A CLOSE WALK TO ALL BUT STILL QUIET WITH THE NICE CHURCH VIEW AS WELL. THE PANTRY CAFE BELOW WAS A REAL PLUS AND WELL WORTH A BRUNCH OR LUNCH. (WE HAD BOTH) PARKING WAS ALSO VERY EASY. I WOULD STAY AGAIN FOR SURE.

Dont pass this one up ! everything was exceptional

  • 5 of 5

If you are looking for an apartment with a great view and within walking distance of the town, this is the place. The Apartment is spacious and well kept. The owner was really nice and accommodating. She answered quite a few questions timely and prepared a nice welcome pack before we arrived. It is very impressive and well organized to make us feel like home. Will definitely recommend it to our friends.

Nice Apt, Great Location

  • 5 of 5

Check in was super easy as they have a lock box, parking right next door in the free car park. Apt. well appointed and super well located. Close to the SuperValue grocery, lots of good restaurants and nice running from Charles Fort to James Fort. Quiet yet central. Would rent here again. Only bad thing was that we were here only 3 nights and really should have stayed at least week. Will definitely return to Kinsale and hopefully this apt.

Highlight of our trip. Great homey apartment

  • 5 of 5

Fantastic rental! Highly recommend this lovely apartment. You just walk in and every thing you need is there and you feel at home. The owner, Margie has gone to great lengths to give you every thing you would want in a rental. It is decorated beautifully, the linens were lovely high quality. There were DVD's and books, cookies and wine upon our arrival. The appliances were also high quality. And, you are not going to find a better location in Kinsale! A short walk to EVERYTHING. We had such a good time, we were so sad to leave and move on to our next rental in a different area. We have rented 3 cottages this trip (our fourth) and this surpasses any rental, we have ever had. Margins attention to detail is astounding, she even leaves you a cell phone to use while there. I highly recommend this to all. You will miss out if you don't choose this apartment.
