Lovely home

  • 5 of 5

Our stay was absolutely lovely. The house was very well appointed, comfortable, quiet and lovely views of Kinsale Bay. Provided in a manual in the house were instructions on how to operate everything including a guide of Kinsale and recommended things to do in the area. It was plenty big enough for two couples, but could easily accommodate another couple. A short easy walk into town and we were in the city center with Farmers Markets, historical walking tours, food tours, restaurants, shops, etc. Agnes’ attention to detail was impeccable - she thought of everything possible. She was always easily available. We would highly recommend this home for a vacation rental.

Impeccable home in Great Kinsale location

  • 5 of 5

This is a perfectly maintained view home in Kinsale. I have never come across a home where the owner has taken such care to make our stay run smoothly. This is a newer house with all the conveniences we would find in our Southern California home. It is spotlessly clean.The modern appliances are clearly labeled and there is a comprehensive book that the owner has prepared for use with the house.

The house is well furnished and is very comfortable. There is good parking on the drivewayin front. We arrived after a long journey and immediately felt at home.

I cannot say enough about the owner ,Agnes. We communicated by email. Whenever I had a question she replied instantly. If you appreciate a perfectly run home with an owner who truly cares about the comfort of her guests this is the house for you.

Kinsale is a very charming town about twenty minutes south of Cork airport. The house sits n a hill close to the old town and has views of the town and across the water to Charles Fort. There are several choices for sitting relaxing and enjoying the view. We are a family with two grandparents our daughter and husband and their two children. We especially liked the downstairs master bedroom and the two upstairs bedrooms with an upstairs sitting area in addition to the living room and sunroom. This house would be perfect at any time of year.

I am a golfer and would recommend this house to golfers who want to play at Old Head and other courses in the area. It is easy to get too and from and is quiet. it is not on the narrow town streets yet it is very close to all the restaurants and night life in the town.

This s a perfect house in a perfect spot in one of the loveliest towns in Ireland.[ I have rented many homes over the years but have never come across one where the owner has taken such care.

Perfect location, property and host

  • 5 of 5

Our group of four adults and a two year old had a wonderful stay at "Masdon's Mayberry". Only a six minute walk to the heart of Kinsale, this spacious house has everything you could possibly need, including a spectacular view of the town and harbor.

Agnes took care of every detail, which for us included providing a crib and hi-chair.

We would highly recommend this well appointed home
