Welcome to Castlepark. Castlepark is uniquely positioned in Kinsale, the development itself has won many awards and 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, spread over 3 floors and comprises of a very large open plan Lounge / Dining Room, Kitchen, wide hallways and 4 large bedrooms with 4 matching bathrooms. It can accommodate large or extended families with sleeping for up to 9 people comfortably. Broadband available in house.
We have just completed a full ‘makeover’ of the house and we know you will enjoy your stay here – relaxation, peaceful yet in the middle of everything.
Our House, the ideal location: Our house is indeed a unique beachfront home, on a peninsula overlooking Kinsale itself, surrounded by heritage and the sea, with direct access to a very safe and sandy beach, secure parking and a large green area for kids to play. Relax !
The Open Plan Lounge is above all spacious and bright – the new velux windows allow in the morning light, the beams are painted cream in colour and rise 45 degrees to the double story height of the relaxing lounge and dining area. The new oak floor, exposed beams, cream paneling – the lanterns & leather couches – even the wall mounted plasma screen - they allow for a relaxing atmosphere.
The accompanying dining area comprises of a large pine table and 8 carved chairs – with views out the south facing full height window –allowing maximum light to flood the room.
Also on this floor there is a full bathroom and easy access to the fully equipped kitchen. The full size kitchen is well equipped with a Washer, Dryer, Dishwasher, Hob, Oven, Microwave, Fridge, Freezer & all general kitchen equipment. There is also a table and 4 chairs for extra visitors.
You now have choices, either the stairs up or the stairs down...both excellently finished. The Stairs Down, with inlaid teak paneling & new woolen carpets leads to the 2 lower bedrooms and 2 en suites. All of the downstairs rooms have hardwood maple flooring fully tiled bathrooms.
The first bedroom on the lower floor is a large double room, with pitch pine furniture, maple floor and a large three piece en suite.
All bed lined is the same design and blue in colour in keeping with the nautical theme throughout.
The second bedroom on the lower floor is extra large in size, with a large double bed and a single bed, again all antique pine furniture on a maple floor. Some of the old beams are again exposed in the two downstairs bedrooms and hallway.
Each of the two lower rooms are en suite with quality fittings. There is also a spare pullout bed as an extra stored under the stair case just in case there is a need for an extra visitor.
The second staircase rises upwards, lit be a new velux window and cushioned with new woolen carpets, and as with all the house freshly painted. Overhead you can see some of the old support beams some almost 2 feet thick ! Also on the upper floor is a large hot press for extra storage.
Both the upper floor bedrooms have the exposed beams, natural in color giving a nice contrast to the cream colors below. To the right is a nice twin bedroom, newly carpeted, with antique pine furniture, and additional old style glass-block windows to below.
The other upper floor bedroom is a good size double, again with exposed natural beams, pine furniture and a large velux window providing subtle brightness. Both these bedrooms share a separate bathroom with electric shower.
However relaxed or active you wish to be on your holiday -Kinsale offers you multiple choices (land or sea based) and allows you to take things at your own pace.
Originally a medieval fishing port, historic Kinsale (from the Irish, Ceann tSaile - 'Head of the Sea') is now known as the 'Culinary Capital of Ireland'. Located on the south west coast of Ireland, Kinsale is full of character and charm.
In the 17th and 18th centuries Kinsale was an important English naval base, and it still has a distinct Georgian flavour. With its yacht-filled harbour, brightly painted cottages, bow-windowed houses and displays of flowers in pots, tub and hanging baskets, it marks the beginning of scenic West Cork.
Only 18 miles from Cork, it is ideally placed as a deep-sea angling and yachting centre.
Kinsale is internationally recognized as the gourmet capital if Ireland, with a large selection of pubs and restaurants to cater for all tastes. There is always a traditional welcome and a selection of entertainment by day and by night.
However relaxed or active you wish to be on your holiday Kinsale allows you to take things at your own pace.
