Kinsale Cottage Rental Photos and Description

Properties sleep 4+ 4+2. Can be rented together or individually.

Cara's Cottage, Marian Cottage and The Chart House (returning to the holiday rental market for 2014) are in the grounds to Scilly House, a period property overlooking the harbour and dating back to 1760. They can be rented together or individually for thos who want to enjoy the extensive leisure facilities available locally or the many friendly pubs and restaurants that have led to Kinsale being called the Goumet Capital of Ireland. All 3 properties are a 7 minutes' walk from Kinsale town centre where you will find many interesting shops, art galleries and museums. The properties have off-street parking and free WiFi. A mobile phone is also available free of charge if required.

Kinsale:: Winner of European prize for Tourism and the Environment, Entente Florale, National Tidy Town, Gourmet Capital - one of Ireland's oldest towns, with narrow streets and many historic buildings to explore; all sheltered by a beautiful harbour.

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.

Getting here: Is easy with direct flights to Cork from most UK and many European airports. Coming from America? Cork is only a 3 hours car journey from Dublin and 2 hours from Shannon Airport.

If you're arriving by car Cork Ferryport, serving Roscoff in France, is only 14 miles away.

And finally, as our properties are in the grounds of Scilly House we are on hand if you need us. Just ask!

Marian Cottage- Provided more than expected

  • 5 of 5
Marian Cottage and the village of Kinsale were more than described accurately. Our stay in early April 08 allowed our spirits to be rejuvenated, by a village and accommodation that provided much more than we had expected. Marian Cottage is situated at the top of Scilly Hill, which is an easy walk into the village (although there are some steps) There is a great pub opposite (The Spaniard) which provides wholesome meals. Although Marian Cottage has more than enough amenities for the gourmet traveller with quality local produce being readily available. For those who enjoy their privacy Marien Cottage has a secluded courtyard, although it would be difficult to forgo the spectacular views provided from the (secret garden) access from the grounds of Scilly House. The property is very clean and well maintained, we will be recommending Marien Cottage to our family, friends & Colleagues.

I would like to add on a personal note that the owner Mark provided a service above what might normally be expected. We had been waiting on documents to arrive by mail from Australia on our departure from Kinsale they had yet to arrive. Mark drove a 40 minute round trip to Cork Airport to deliver the documents that had arrived not long after we had left. What a champion!

Chart House - great location, loved the house.

  • 5 of 5
The view from the house is amazing, the location is really convenient to Kinsale town. The house is really nicely decorated inside, it was clean, cozy and the owner had added a special touch by putting up a Christmas tree for our stay. The kitchen was really well equipped, the house had everything required for a 2 week stay. Kinsale provides a selection of excellent restaurants (Jim Edwards & The White Lady were our favourites) and bars and there was a great atmosphere in the town. The start of the Scilly walk, which is a pedestrian walkway along the water front is just 2 mins from Chart house. The house has lots of lovely books and an open fire which was really relaxing and we will definitely go back there.

Cozy and Welcoming Cottage, the Perfect Spot in Kinsale.

  • 5 of 5
I'll start out by saying that as soon as we arrived, we wished we had planned to stay more than the 3 nights we had scheduled. The cottage could not have been more perfect for a relaxing diversion from the first 6 days of our Ireland trip; it was sort of a vacation from our vacation! I felt like the Cottage was actually larger than the pictures on the website reveal...it was quite comfortable and the perfect size for my husband and I...plenty of room to move around and to relax without stepping over each other...huge bath was also great. Bed was very comfy and we never had any issues with outside noise disturbing us. It was really nice having the outdoor space for coffee in the morning and wine in the evening, and we actually cooked dinner in one night (it has the basic 'hardware' for preparing a meal) and also had coffee and breakfast in each morning. We actually enjoyed being a tad bit away from the center of town, it was a delightful walk into town each day. It was also nice having two restaurants very close by as well. The Spaniard (you can see it from the cottage's driveway) and Man Friday were nice, we ate at both and the food was good. Also great to have off-street parking...we only took the car out one afternoon to visit Old Head Golf Links (go see it, it was amazing!) which was maybe 20 minutes away. Mark, thanks for being so easy to deal with thru the rental process and always very responsive...it was great having a chance to chat with you a bit toward the end of our stay. Your cottages really are something special in Kinsale, and I hope we get to come back some day.

Spacious, well equipped but cold and dark

  • 3 of 5
We recently stayed at Marian Cottage, Scilly House, Kinsale Ireland for three nights and found the cottage to be spacious and well, equipped. The kitchen has a washing machine and full sized oven and all the crockery and cutlery that one will need for a short break.

The bedroom / Lounge room are of a barn style with a vaunted barn roof, free standing lights for lighting and one of the most comfortable beds we have slept in on our travels.

While providing a feel of spaciousness this barn style did mean that, even with all the heating on, the cottage was very cold, and we had to wear jackets indoors for the full length of our stay. This coldness is of particular note in the very large bathroom which has just a single heater sandwiched between the bath and wall. The property is also very dark at night with the free standing lights unable to cope with the size of the property.

We also experienced a considerable amount of noise from the nearby pub on both Friday and Saturday nights. There is also a problem in that pub patrons park directly outside the bedroom windows of the cottage and stand beside their cars talking loudly when they leave the pub.

We would not stay in this cottage again nor recommend it to friends. Just too cold, dark and noisy.

In comparison we are now staying in a more modern cottage at Tarbert which is fully insulated, has double glazing, costs considerably less per night, is set in the quiet Irish countryside and is superb.

Owner's Response: We are very sorry to hear you weren’t warm enough during your stay. As we live next to the cottage we regret you didn’t bring this to our attention at the time as we would have done our best to resolve the problem. The cottage does have double glazing and is fully insulated. It also has central heating and a wood burning stove with wood supplied. In our experience, with the fire lit, the cottage can get very warm so we are puzzled that you were cold. We have rented this cottage for over 10 years and have not had a complaint of this kind before. Indeed, some of the reviews specifically refer to how warm and cosy it is!

It is true to say the cottage is close to the Spaniard Pub; there is always going to be some noise as this is one of Kinsale’s most popular and traditional bars and is a great amenity for some!
The cottage dates from the nineteenth century, has a lot of character and charm and is located close to, but not in Kinsale town centre. We do not advertise it as being in a rural peaceful location.

Exactly what we were looking for

  • 5 of 5
My wife and I stayed in this lovely cottage in april 2013 and found it idyllic. The 7 minute walk to the center of town enhanced the appeal of this location as the walk is quite nice and scenic. The cottage itself is very warm and welcoming and the bathroom is huge. Everything worked well and the bed is very comfortable. The little wood stove fireplace added quite a wonderful ambiance into the evening on the chillier nights. And the Spaniard! It's worth staying here just for the proximity to The Spaniard. The locals are a nice and friendly bunch and you will easily be welcomed. Mark is a cool guy and very accommodating. We would definitely stay here upon our next visit.
