Museums, historic forts, art galleries, craft shops, not to mention the 40+ bars and restaurants that give Kinsale its reputation for good food and that Irish only phenomenon called 'craic'. Oh, and the Guinness is good too!

For the active: Choose from 3 golf courses including the spectacular and world renowned Links at The Old Head of Kinsale, deep-sea fishing, sailing or perhaps a harbour cruise. Maybe spend a day at one of the many 'empty' beaches nearby or perhaps visit the Norman built 12th century church of St Multose and 15th century Desmond Castle which houses the International Musem of Wine, or the twin 17th century forts guarding the entrance to the harbour to learn about our town that is one of the oldest in Ireland.

Whatever is for you, you will find it here in Kinsale.

Cara cottage

  • 5 of 5

We recently stayed in caras cottage.

When we first arrived we were met with an amazing view of the harbour with a beautiful little garden to relax in.

The cottage itself was very clean and very comfortable .. Unfortunately the weather wasn't good but it wasn't hard to cosy up in the cottage. I had my little 19 month old with me and mark kindly left some toys in the bedroom. I thought this was a really nice touch as Nicole just drove the little truck around all weekend fully entertained !! I also want to comment on how comfortable the beds were .. Never slept better that weekend

It's a short hop across the road to a lovely traditional pub and only 10 min walk to the town.. We Were sad to leave but I would highly recommend this cosy cottage to people wanting to have a break in kinsale and mark couldn't have been more helpful with any of our requirements..

adorable cottages

  • 5 of 5

We had a girl's trip in Kinsale and rented both cottages. The cottages were spacious, clean, and absolutely adorable. They are located directly across the street from The Spaniard, which became our hang out for most evenings. The town is beautiful and we had a nice view of the water from the cottages. I can't wait to come back!

Warm, Comfortable, Clean Get A Way Cottage

  • 5 of 5

'Cara's Cottage" on Scilly property was a beautiful retreat that overlooked the sea. It was a pretty, warm, and inviting cottage where we felt totally at home. The owner, Mark, was very helpful and friendly and went out of his way to make us feel welcome and comfortable.

It was so wonderful that we booked for an extra night. The cottage was a short walk from the beautiful town of Kinsale, which has several nice little shops and delicious restaurants. About 100 yards from the cottage is a wonderful little pub called The Spaniard which provided an enjoyable evening with music and very nice people and of course hot Port.

This cottage is above and beyond what we expected and someday when we return to Kinsale we will definitely stay here.

Lovely Kinsale

  • 5 of 5

We booked Cara's Cottage, for 3 nights..... It was not enough time. The cottage is perfect for our party of 4 adults. We toured, washed, and even had home cooked meals ( the kitchen is excellent and easy to use) The weather was so pleasant we could sit outside in the evening..... Very serene. Park the car and walk, our tour all that West Kerry has to offer. Mark (host) is great to work with, email /text/phone whatever ... This is probably the best apartment/cottage I have rented thank you Mark for the pleasure....
