About the Property

Cottage, 2 Bedrooms, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 4)


Walk to everything in Kinsale! No need to drive. Set in a quiet residential neighborhood, but right in the center of the beautiful village of Kinsale. We're close enough to walk anywhere in about 2 to 5 minutes, but far enough away from all the action to ensure the peace you need when you need it.

We've completely redone the interior design with a modern, fresh feel, while preserving the original beauty and tradition of the exterior of this 300-year-old former fisherman's cottage. We've just returned from another update, adding new curtains, new sofa, some new fixtures and some lovely finishings.

Here's a review that puts it quite nicely:

'It couldn't have been more perfect for us. This cottage was indeed immaculate, charming, tastefully furnished, quiet, and cozy. It really felt like home and everything was conveniently within walking distance. What we also loved was the abundance of natural light that came through the cottage during the day making it such an inspiring place to be in. We would definitely come back to stay. Thank you for making our Kinsale holiday such a great experience!'
Ann Mairi & Eric, New York, NY

And another said: '...the most comfortable bed I slept on in Ireland...'
New Zealand

Set on a hill above Desmond Castle in the center of town, walking distance to all of the wonderful shops, pubs and restaurants of Kinsale, considered the 'Gourmet Capital' of Ireland.

Nearby attractions include: the Old Head of Kinsale (a beautiful site and also the location of one of the top golf courses in the world), several beautiful beaches, a marina, and some of the most amazing natural scenery in Ireland.

We've recently added all new wood floors, new beds, all new modern designer furniture and fully stocked the kitchen with new utensils, glasses, plates, etc., new washer and dryer, a gas bbq and patio furniture in the expansive back yard.

It's a beautiful place to stay and we welcome you to come and experience all that this wonderful location has to offer.
