Overview

About the property

Kinsale, Ardbrack Heights, waterfront, large balcony 2 double bedrooms

This wonderfully sunny holiday apartment is located in Kinsale's prestigious Ardbrack Heights in the village of Scilly, a ten-minute walk outside the town of Kinsale. The huge floor to ceiling, wall-to-wall windows allow amazing sea views from the master bedroom (breakfast in bed with a sea view!) and the entire sitting room/dining area. Outside, the sheltered balcony, which runs the entire width of the accommodation, is perfect for a relaxing drink whilst watching the sunset or the busy harbour activity.

The two bedrooms sleep four comfortably and the newly refurbished modern kitchen is fully fitted and ideal for a self catering holiday.

The only sounds you can hear from this property are on the water or the bird song, yet a short ten-minute stroll brings you into Kinsale centre. Kinsale is a popular holiday resort for Irish and foreign tourists which is known for its many gourmet restaurants and excellent leisure activities including yachting, sea angling, and golf.

Kinsale - sedate: Not only does this town lay claim to being the oldest town in Ireland, but it is also renowned internationally for the number and quality of restaurants in the town. It is hailed as the gourmet capital of Ireland, with no shortage of pubs and restaurants to suit every taste. However relaxed or active you wish to be on your holiday Kinsale allows you to take things at your own pace.

Kinsale - Active: Sailing, Harbour Trips, Fishing and whale watching, Golf, Horse Riding, Shooting, Archery, Paintball, Windsurfing and water sports - Walking and Historical Visits - Museums and Forts Leisure - Pottery Workshops - Readings - Taxi and bus tours.

Kinsale History: The Battle of Kinsale, fought in 1601 between a combined Spanish, an Irish force and English armies, was a turning point in Irish history. The harbour is guarded by two very fine star-shaped fortresses built in the 17th century: Charles Fort is well worth a visit (guided tours). See also the old Courthouse, now a museum; St Multose Church, built in the 13th century and still in use, and 'French Prison', the 16th century Desmond Castle. There is a signposted tourist trail to this fascinating town with a guide booklet. Take a trip too to the Old Head of Kinsale for magnificent cliff scenery. It was off here that the Lusitania was sunk in 1915 with a loss of over 1,500 lives.

Three-night stay in Kinsale

  • 5 of 5

Good location - just a short walk from the town - the flat had everything we needed, and everything was so well explained we did not have to contact the owner for anything. Aabsolutely no complaints.

Superb holiday apartment

  • 5 of 5

My daughter and I had a wonderful week's holiday in Minnie Lucey's superb Ardbrack heights apartment. It has 2 very comfortable double bedrooms, a small bathroom with a good shower and a spacious living room/kitchen dining room with a great balcony and unsurpassed view of the estuary, the marina and the village. The flat is modern and beautifully equipped with excellent wifi connection, radio, TV, CD's, books, maps etc, and it was great to have some bread, butter, milk, cheese and a bottle of chilled Prosecco to welcome us on arrival.

Ardbrack heights has private and secure parking, but is in easy walking distance to the village and off road along the estuary to Summercove and Charles Fort.

It was our first visit to the charming little town/port/village of Kinsale which has great facilities for water sports and horse riding, as well as a remarkable number of very good restaurants and pubs. We specially enjoyed the fine food at Man Friday, Fishy Fishy and Finns' Table, pints at the Spaniard and Bulman's, and also beer, fish and chips, and the Irish hospitality with nightly Trad Folk Music at Kitty Ó Sé’s Bar and restaurant.

We can recommend Minnie Lucey's apartment in Kinsale without reservation and hope to return from Edinburgh to stay there again some time!

Lovely clean and comfortable apartment with fantastic views

  • 5 of 5

The apartment was nicely decorated, spotlessly clean and very comfortable. There was a large deck to enjoy the late evening sun while overloooking the harbour. The location was very close to the quaint little town of Kinsale, walking paths and the amazing Spaniard Inn. The owner was a delight to deal with and I would highly recommend staying here!

We loved the property.

  • 5 of 5

It was quietly set up on top of the hill from the town with a beautiful view of the bay as advertised.Our walk to Fort Charles was an easy 30 minute walk where we enjoyed an interesting 15 min overview of the grounds given to us by Karin. The beds at the rental were super comfortable and we especially appreciated the coffee, bread, milk and Preseco that was provided for us. Thank you for allowing us to stay.

A nice apartment with one of the best views of Kinsale

  • 4 of 5

This apartment has a great view and is an easy walk to Kinsale. The Spaniard pub is very close and does good food. There is good parking on site and Minnie goes the extra mile to make sure your stay is a good one.
