Incredible owner and perfect location makes this home a perfect vacation.

  • 5 of 5

Thank you Trisha for your outstanding service and beautiful home right in the center of Kinsale.

I rarely write reviews but I must let you know that you will not be disappointed with this property and outstanding customer service. I spent a week with a friend over St. Patrick's Day 2017. I have been to Kinsale 3 times and rented from others which were nice. I am so happy that we found this home and plan on coming back soon. The location is right in the heart of town and it still seems like a quaint private and quiet location. Yes Kinsale has Ireland's best food and the world's greatest people. Trisha is no exception. Everything felt like home and the service was outstanding.

I left plenty of coal for the BBQ as well as kindling to start a beautiful fire at night. This was by far my best visit to Kinsale. I hope that you enjoy the best vacation ever in the heart of Kinsale.

A lovely house, tastefully restored.

  • 5 of 5

We were very pleased to spend a week in this spotless, comfortable house. It's short walk to excellent restaurants, good shops and historic buildings; a short drive to some of the most beautiful spots on Ireland's south coast. Highly recommended.

Owner's Response: Its so great to get such positive feed back from guests who stay in Higher O'Connell Street, we are very proud of our house and love when other people get to enjoy it. Kinsale is a great town with some of the best restaurants in Ireland, everyone makes a huge effort to keep it that way! Trisha

What a find!

  • 5 of 5

I chose this cottage because I was really impressed with the photos and the positive reviews, I have to say I was not disappointed! The house is Soooo fabulous, the interior is stunning and the patio area a real sun trap. We had our 16 month old daughter with us and it was great as we didn't need to bring a high chair or travel cot. The location is great too as it's so quick to get to the shops, cafe's and restaurants. We had a wonderful holiday and thoroughly recommend staying in this little gem.

Amazing property, Fabulous location

  • 5 of 5

We were searching for a small home in or near Kinsale. What a find!

Lovely, refurbished 2 bedroom with one bath, in the heart of Kinsale. Beautifully decorated, with a professional designer's flair. Fresh flowers and plenty of fuel for the fire on arrival.

Walk to everything, yet in a peaceful, quiet location. Master has a queen, 2nd bedroom has a queen and twin. (Livingroom couch is also a comfortable sleeping alternative.) Car park in the back, good wifi. Delightful owner.

When you rent it, please take good care of the place, as we can't wait to return.

Great house and location-family friendly

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in this 2-bed home at the start of August. A family with 3 young boys, we were able to have meals together in the back garden and the large open plan living/dining space as well as easily enjoy our very first visit to Kinsale. The kitchen, which is all modern like the rest of the house, has folding doors that open it up to the patio garden - perfect for summer visits but even when it rained were terrific to be able to open up the house. The pictures on the website are not an exaggeration, this is a cleanly designed and presented house with TV/sofa perfect for the end of a busy day and early morning kids' entertainment while preparing for our next day out. Bedrooms and bathroom have great furniture and natural light, all well presented when we arrived.

The house is two minutes walk from a terrific local pub and shops and five minutes from the town centre and marina so evening walks were easy - and we were able to go out for forgotten pints of milk or just explore without hassle. We had a large 7-seater car too that we either parked just outside the front door or in the parking area at the rear of the property. Both were no problem so we could use the house as a base to explore the beaches south of Kinsale or head into Cork, Cobh and other local places.

The house owner was also in contact with us by mobile phone with tips for where to go and where to eat out, and with answers to any questions. Very helpful. We very much recommend this rental if you want to be central for access to a great place like Kinsale or to venture to the rest of the south coast/West Cork area.

Gorgeous house

  • 5 of 5

I rented this house for a weekend away with the girls. The house was so inviting and cosy that we didn't want to leave. The location is excellent and the house has all the facilities you could ask for in a rental property. I would highly recommend staying here as the unique and quirky characteristics of this cottage offer much more than a holiday home.
