Kinsale condo description

Fabulous large luxury top of the range Duplex Penthouse (2 floors own hall door) in Shearwater. Shearwater is Kinsale's most prestigious address in an unprecedented location on Kinsale's marina. It is right beside Kinsale Yacht Club and the famous Fishy Fishy Restaurant in Ireland's gourmet capital. There is secure private parking so forget driving as you just stroll out to restaurants, bars and galleries - you are in the heart of everything - not just looking at them across the bay! Stylishly fully equipped the duplex is furnished to 5* star standard. The stunning vast airy New York loft style living room, with windows at each end, has a very high vaulted ceiling with rooftop velux windows making delightfully bright. There are flat screen TVs in the living room and in the large master bedroom, as well as DVD, and free WIFI for laptops. Ideal for 'Old Head' golfers and discerning visitors.


The apartment facilities: Shearwater is a small exclusive luxury development on a prestigious site right on the waterfront on Pier Road right beside Kinsale yacht club and between acton's hotel and fishy fishy. Shearwater is Kinsale's top of the range of accommodation, overlooking the marina and myriad of yachts and yachting lifestyle. There is an airiness, lightness and brightness feel. It is impossible to capture on camera the height of the main room ceiling with its airy velux windows but it is delightful. On the ground floor of Shearwater is a cafe wine bar so if you don't want even to cook breakfast on your holiday you can pop down to vista for your croissants and cappuccino, otherwise take them back up up and relax with your newspaper in the little Breton boys casual dining section of the kitchen. There is also a formal dining area with a beautiful solid walnut dining table seating 6/8 people for that more formal dinner. There is also free wifi internet access for your laptop

Kinsale: Kinsale is awash with fab restaurants from Fishy Fishy, to Max's wine bar, Toddie's, the Blue Haven, the Shanghai Express with Jean-Marc's great Asian food, so you will never be hungry. And all 2 to 5 minutes stroll. There are lots of art galleries, including one on the ground level of Shearwater and always just so much to do in between sips of wine! Kinsale is a friendly relaxed place, perfect for all the family, and for all interests. Everyone is very helpful and friendly and there is nothing like the Corkman's banter and wit. You will fall in love with the place as we did and end up returning year after year! It is just twenty minutes down the road from cork airport on an old country road. Kinsale is the perfect base for visiting the south west of ireland. Arts week 2013 5th - 14th july. Gourmet festival 2013 11 - 13th Oct. Come for The Gathering!

Apartment info: our 2 floor duplex penthouse is one of very few in the development to have its own steps up to its own hall door from the large communal landscaped patio deck area where you can sit out, or lie out, and take the sun. It is also one of the biggest available. There is also a small deck area right outside our hall door at the top of the steps where you can also sit and take in the sun or sit and sip! With its very high cathedral loft ceiling in the main living room the atmosphere and feel is airy spacious lightness and brightness not seen in normal apartment and difficult to capture on camera. I think you will see from our review from previous guests that everyone has loved the whole atmosphere and ambiance, the lightness and brightness of the whole place. It is really special and magical at night looking out over the lights of kinsale and the yachts bobbing up and down on the marina. Access is from the car park is by swipe card and elevator to the first deck. STRICTLY NO SMOKING IN PROPERTY. NO PETS ALLOWED IN THE COMPLEX.

They are filled with interesting little shops, cafes, galleries, bars and restaurants. Life is relaxed in Kinsale with its other major attraction being the sea and marina as well as the old head golf club and the very interesting Charles Fort. There are coves and beaches within a few minutes drive and deep sea fishing is also very popular. It is a colourful cosmopolitan spot. It is just 15 miles from cork city and is the gateway to west cork for day trips along the coast to Glandore, Clonakilty, Killarney, Kenmare before returning to one of the super restaurants in Kinsale for dinner. . Shearwater is right in the heart of Kinsale itself- not looking across the harbour at it with a hefty walk up the aptly named 'Breakheart Hill' home.

                      Other Activities: Gourmet Restaurants all year round plus Kinsale Arts Festival in July and Gourmet Festival in October. Sailing Courses for children in Kinsale Y.C.
