Overlooking the harbour on the south facing Scilly peninsula Pisces apartment is just five minutes walk away from the town centre with its wonderful restaurants, art galleries and shops. The large sandy beach of Garrettstown is a fifteen minute drive away. The accommodation is a delightful self catering apartment offering stunning views of Kinsale town, marina and historic James Fort and has been rated four star by the Irish Tourist Board. Finished to a very high standard with antique pieces and original oil paintings there are two en suite bedrooms (one double, one twin) and open plan kitchen, dining, sitting area. There is also a balcony overlooking the yachting marina.
I normally stay in town but always wanted to be up in Scilly. You can not ask for a better location and the views from the living room are priceless. It is a very peaceful and quiet area even with the Spaniard next door. The location makes it ideal if you want to head into Kinsale or out to Summercove and the Bulman. Two nice size and comfortable bedrooms and a very useful kitchen with a washing machine. Irene was a very nice host and provided us a parking spot right in front of the house which came in handy. This is now my first choice whenever I get back to Kinsale.
The sun is glistening on the harbor and streaming through the large windows overlooking the harbor and marina as I write this review on our next to last day here. It has been a delightful vacation. Pat and Irene are great hosts providing invaluable local information, as well as other information and travel tips about Ireland. The apartment is comfortable and well fitted out. It's a great "home away from home". I would definitely recommend this property to friends and relatives. There is only one downside - the pub across the street can be a bit noisy on weekends during warm weather. But hey - join in!! It's a great pub.
Kinsale in County Cork is one of the most picturesque, popular and fashionable resorts of the south west coast of Ireland. The town nestles between the hills and the shoreline, a maze of narrow streets, never far from the water and little changed in many hundreds of years. There are three pubs and three restaurants on our doorstep. Kinsale town with its many gourmet restaurants shops and art galleries is a five minute walk away. Nearby leisure facilities include three golf courses (including the spectacular Old Head Course)., sailing, fishing and horse riding.
