About our home

At edge of city centre this three bedroom apt is across from St Multose church, built in 1057. We are open to asynchronous or points trades.

Kinsale is a wonderful mix of mediaeval town, fishing village, and modern upscale yachting community. This 3 bedroom apartment sleeps 5, each bedroom with their own bathroom for convenience. Parking is free and right next door and the apartment has the entire village within a few blocks.

There are six really nice day trips out of Kinsale. They include: Timouleague Abbey, several beaches, the English Market in Cork, the memorial for the Lusitania, Barry'scourt and Blarney Castles, Fota Wildlife Park, and many others. People who like adventures have the whole Wild Atlantic Way at their doorstep, including kayaking, biking, and golf.

Spring and fall are the best times to visit, when the town is awake but not to hopping with tourists. Friendly people farmers market and more great restaurants than you could go through in one visit. Close to airport, Cork City Centre and the rest of West Cork. This apartment is at the doorstep to all the beauty of this part of the Emerald Isle.

There is a pool and a gym within an easy walk that will keep you fit. Day passes available upon request.
