KINSALE - PRIVATE, BEACHFRONT, 4BR / 4BA, PRIVATE HOUSE - TIME TO RELAX !

Kinsale House Rental Photos and Description

House - 4 Bedrooms + 4 Baths -(Sleeps 9)

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.

This home in Kinsale met all my expectations, and believe me they were high. Declan and his family are nothing but kind, helpful, and considerate. The home is beautifully maintained, roomy, and comfortable. We had a large group of adults and children and never felt cramped. The location is exceptional. Somedays we walked into Kinsale and enjoyed the town with all its shops, friendly people, and great restaurants. Other days we we took long walks on all the trails around this home or just enjoyed the beach and sites nearby. Kinsale is also a great stepping off point to tour around. We did a lot of touring and I can honestly say there was not one location I saw on my travels that I would have preferred to stay.
My family took this trip to celebrate my parents 50th anniversary and we could not have chosen a better spot.

We highly recommend Castlepark to anyone who wants a home away from home. It is very clean, casual, and lots of space to spread out if you have several couples, as we did. We enjoyed the kitchen for breakfast, the laundry facilities, and the large living room. The listing description and photos were all as advertised. Declan was very good about answering our questions, and getting a good deal for golf :-). All the restaurants were great, Jim Edwards is our recommendation, and Dalton's pub for traditional Irish music on Mondays and Tuesdays. Don't come late or you won't find any space!
We would definitely refer our friends to Castlepark. Only one small downside is there is no internet connection or telephone, so we needed to go into town to connect with the world. Upside of that, it is really cheap to buy a local phone, which we did. Thanks for a lovely stay Declan.

We stayed in Castlepark Kinsale the week of August 20th. There was nine of us which consists of 7 adults and 2 kids. The house was brilliant the layout of the house was exactly what we needed we were not living on top of each other because of the space. Having a beautiful beach that was just steps away from the doorstep was excellent, my kids just had so much fun there. I had a friend come and visit us with her 2 kids and her Mum they to did not want to leave they had so much fun. Also having the Dock bar to sit out on a sunny day was just lovely.There also was beautiful places to walk to like James Fort, it was so pretty.Kinsale also had such beautiful places to eat i highly recommend Maxs we went there 2 nights in a row. Overall it was a fantastic place to stay and we would diffently go back.

This home is in Kinsale, which is a lovely harbour town with lots to do for any genre. My family stayed in this home and we found it to be quite lovely. The owners are very accomodating and are very willing to give information on golf courses, restaurants, hiking, and other activities. The home is very modern and the layout is great for families. It is within walking distance to town and is situated within one minute of the beach. My husband golfed Old Head, which is nearby. If you golf I would definitely recommend considering making a tee time! We actually had a cook-out one night above the beach and it was great fun. I would highly recommend this home to anyone visiting Ireland! The listing information and photos are exactly as you will find the home. The home was clean, well maintained, and well equipped.

Great for our family

  • 5 of 5
This house proved to be perfect for our family -- our 3 adults and 3 kids (17, 14, 12) fit comfortably in the house, which was well-lit, clean and well equipped. The family who own the house were very accommodating and available for our questions, and the whole Castlepark complex was quiet and friendly. Easy access to the beach was a great plus, and Kinsale itself is a great launching-off place for our visits to Beara Peninsula, Cork, Cove, pony trekking, and many other day-trips. We done many house rentals over the years, and we felt anxious having to arrange this one sight-unseen at great distance, but it could not have gone better and the house and location were perfect. Did I mention easy access to the Dock pub just outside the complex gates? We'd love to return someday -- in the meantime, we hope to send friends and relatives.

Kinsale

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.

Other Activities: On the beach with a vast range of water based activities - kayaking, sailing schools etc

Golf: Our House is only 10 minutes from the world famous 'OLD HEAD' Golf course , there are also others nearby (Fota Island, Cork Golf Club, Monkstown, etc) - If you want further details or you want to give me further details I can make suggestions accordingly....

Notes:
Our House, the ideal location: Our house is indeed a unique beachfront home, on a peninsula overlooking Kinsale itself. We have direct access to a very safe and sandy beach – to get to this from the house you stroll across the private lawns and step quietly onto the soft sand. On the other side of the peninsula from the beach is a great yacht marina, Castlepark marina with multimillion euro yachts for charter. Also on the doorstep is the famous traditional pub, The Dock for a quiet pint. Directly across the water is historic Charles Fort, behind the house is equally famous James Fort guarding Kinsale harbor and up behind the house is a beautiful headland with scenic walks , providing panoramic views of the harbour, Charles Fort, Kinsale town and the Bandon River. Kinsale caters for all sporting enthusiasts both land and sea based. You are also only 10 minutes from the ‘Old Head’ – one of the world's most recognized and respected Golf courses.
