Lovely large house in Kinsale
This was a lovely large house with 4 bedrooms in a residential area of Kinsale. It was well stocked with the little extras that matter - extra bin bags, dishwasher tablets, towels etc. There is a garden washing line that we used for drying wet suits.
One note for potential hires - it's at the top of a steep hill just outside town so one of our senior guests couldn't walk up from the centre of town. Not a major problem for most people and we had a car but worth considering if you have mobility constraints.
Overall a very nice property in a great town.
Wonderful place for a holiday
We loved the house. It was in a great location for us as it was only a few minutes walk to the centre but was slightly set back so was very quiet. Everything was in good order and there was plenty of space for us. We particularly liked that basics such as salt, pepper and oil were in the cupboard. The owner was lovely and communication with her was very easy. We would certainly use this house again if we stayed in the area.
Lovely home, good neighborhood
holiday in Kinsale
Clean and tidy. Loved the spacious Kitchen diner. Plenty of parking spaces. Wifi excellent. Short walk to town. We enjoyed our stay and would book this property again.
This lovely house has all you need for a perfect holiday. Very well equipped and spacious. Tastefully decorated and spotlessly clean. Excellent location within easy reach of central Kinsale if you do not mind a hill walk on return. Highly recommend and excellent. We will return.
