We are redeveloping the Chart House from September 2017 to live in ourselves so we are not renting Cara's Cottage or Marian Cottage while the building work is on-going as they are adjacent. Please bear with us as we plan on improving both the other cottages too! Please get in touch if you would like to rent either Cara's or Marian Cottage after September 2018.

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.

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
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!
Charming Quintessential Ireland
This cottage surpassed our expectations. I would love to return and book a longer stay.
Fantastic place, great welcome
This place was perfect for me and my 2 little boys. Great location. Thank you!
Lovely, quiet, spacious and clean
Accommodation was v good - there are 3 houses beside each other so great for families. Short walk to kinsale
Had a wonderful time in Marion cottage at Kinsale.
Had a wonderful time in Marion cottage at Kinsale. Mark is a great host, very understanding and very accommodating. The cottage itself is pleasantly cozy and in spite of being near the road very quiet. You cannot be any closer to both Man Fridays and the Spaniard, and then an easy walk into town. Try Bastian for a lovely dinner. A+++ in every way.
A perfect base for our one week stay
The cottage is very well appointed, warm and welcoming after a day's walking out. Superb location for the town, getting out into West Cork and also for walks out to the forts and harbour and ocean views. We would definitely stay again
Kinsale is situated on the south coast of Ireland, at the start of the Wild Atlantic Way, and just 15 miles from Cork and its International Airport. The town is the gateway to the wonderful countryside of West Cork and is famous for its gourmet reputation. Spaniard Pub and Man Friday restaurant within a minutes walk. Walk to town centre in 5 minutes, to find many many others. Charles Fort, museums and other historic sites all within walking distance. Beaches and sporting activities, including sailing, kayaking, horse riding and golf are only a few minutes drive away.
