Kinsale house description

Welcome to Castlepark. Castlepark is uniquely positioned in Kinsale, the development itself has won many awards & was most recently referenced in Journal Of the Royal Institute of Architects of Ireland (May 2007).

Our house is unique in that it is the largest house, positioned in the middle of Castlepark village, spread over 3 floors & comprises of a very large open plan Lounge/Dining Room, Kitchen, wide hallways & 4 large bedrooms with 4 matching bathrooms. Unique features include vaulted ceilings with exposed timbers & plenty of natural light. Our house can accommodate large or extended families with sleeping for up to 10 people comfortably. We have just completed a full ‘makeover’ of the house, we know you will enjoy your stay here, relaxation, peaceful yet in the middle of everything.

From the hallway you get a first glimpse of what is too follow, free flowing of space into the open plan lounge/dining area, old style yet contemporary but above all relaxing & ready to enjoy. The open plan lounge area is very spacious & bright, the new velux sky light windows allow in the morning light, the beams are painted cream in colour & rise 45° to double height. The new oak floor, cream panelling –the lanterns & leather couches even the wall mounted plasma screen TV/DVD they allow for a relaxing atmosphere.

The accompanying dining area comprises of a large pine table & 8 carved chairs with views out via the south facing full height window allowing maximum light to flood the room. Also on this floor there is a full bathroom with shower & easy access to the fully equipped kitchen. The full size antique pine kitchen is well equipped with a Washer, Dryer, Dishwasher, Hob, Oven, Microwave, Fridge, Freezer & all general kitchen equipment. There is also a table & 4 chairs for extra visitors.

The first bedroom on the lower floor is a large double room, with pitch pine furniture, maple floor & a large three piece ensuite. All bed lined is the same design & blue in colour, keeping the nautical theme throughout. The second bedroom on the lower floor is extra large in size, with a large double bed & a single bed, with all antique pine furniture & maple flooring.

Each of the two lower bedrooms are ensuite with quality fittings. There is also a spare pullout bed & a baby travel cot both stored under the stair case just in case there is a need for an extra visitor/toddler.

The second staircase rises upwards, lit be a new velux sky light window & cushioned with new woollen carpets, & as with all the house, freshly painted. Also on the upper floor is a large hot press for extra storage.

Both the upper floor bedrooms have the exposed beams, natural in colour giving a good contrast to the cream colours below. To the right is a nice twin bedroom, newly carpeted with antique pine furniture. The other upper floor bedroom is a good size double, again with exposed natural beams, pine furniture & a large velux sky light window providing subtle brightness. Both these bedrooms share a separate bathroom with electric shower.

There are four bathrooms all with showers throughout the house. Plenty of board games & books are available when friends arrive. Outside the house there is a planted gravelled courtyard & private secure parking accessed via a pass code on an electric barrier.

Our House, the ideal location: GPS(51°41’50N)(8°30’50W) (Note: We also have a 2 Bedroom house available as well (ref : VRBO 260301)
Our house is indeed a unique beachfront home, on a peninsula overlooking Kinsale itself, surrounded by heritage & the sea. We have direct access to a very safe, sandy beach, you stroll across the gravel courtyard & private lawns & step quietly onto the soft sand.

On the other side of the peninsula from the beach is a great yacht marina Castlepark Marina, with numerous yachts & boats available for charter, short term holiday moorings can also be arranged. Also on the doorstep is the famous traditional pub, The Dock for a quiet pint. Directly across the water is historic Charles Fort, behind the house is the equally famous James Fort, both guarding Kinsale harbour. Up behind the house is a very beautiful, heritage protected headland with very scenic walks, providing panoramic views of both the inner & outer harbour, our beach, Charles Fort, Kinsale town & the Bandon River.

Castlepark has it all yet you are still only minutes from the gourmet capitol itself-Kinsale. A real Gem to escape too!

About Kinsale:
Originally a medieval fishing port, historic Kinsale is now known as the 'Culinary Capital of Ireland'. Located on the south west coast of Ireland, Kinsale is full of history, character & charm. With its yacht-filled harbour, brightly painted cottages, bow-windowed houses & displays of flowers in pots, tub & hanging baskets, it marks the beginning of scenic West Cork.

Only 18 miles from Cork, it is ideally placed as a deep-sea angling & yachting centre. Boat charter fishing excursions can be organised at the local Marina. Kinsale is internationally recognised as the gourmet capital of Ireland, with a large selection of pubs & restaurants to cater for all tastes. There is always a traditional welcome & a selection of entertainment by day & by night. A wide range of festivals are held during the year, Arts Week, Jazz Festival, Gourmet Festival, Comedy Festival, Kinsale Karnival, Kinsale Regatta, Sovereign Cups, Vintage Rally, Kinsale 7’s.

Perhaps join a historical walking or geology tour, go horse riding or whale watching; Learn to sail, snorkel or kayak; take a pottery or art lesson or perhaps learn to cook, anything is possible! Kinsale caters for visitors of all ages, for all sporting enthusiasts both land & sea based. You are also only 10 minutes from the ‘Old Head’, one of the worlds’ most recognised & respected Golf courses.

However relaxed or active you wish to be on your holiday-Kinsale offers you multiple choices and allows you to take things at your own pace.
