About Margie or Alana

We moved to Ireland in 2006 but fell in love with Kinsale in 2000. We are both educators, Alana at the doctoral level is a PhD professor and mentor and Margie works with younger learners. We own and manage our rental apartment and love being active locally. Alana grew up in Denver, Colorado and Margie was born and raised in San Francisco, California. We come from large extended families and love to play, travel and explore as well as work and participate in our local community.

Margie or Alana purchased this apartment in 2003

Why Margie or Alana chose Kinsale

We purchased this property because of its location. We wished to have an apartment for family visitors as well as for paying guests. Over 1100 people have stayed in the apartment since we opened our apartment as a 'home away from home' ten years ago in March 2006.

What makes this apartment unique

The apartment is homey, exceptionally clean and very well fitted, in particlar the kitchen and living room amenities. It has all the extras of a home - wifi, books, dvds, satellite tv, stereo, fireplace and games as well.

Beautiful apartment in great location

  • 5 of 5

We spent 8 days in this apartment and absolutely loved it. It is very well equipped, had everything we needed, down to soap, shower gel, washing up liquid dishwasher tabs, washing machine tabs, paper towels, toilet paper, coffee, tea, etc. Our 13 and 9 year old boys enjoyed it, too, they had a room each. The location is perfect, very close to restaurants, shops, pubs, all within walking distance. Margie had a bottle of wine and some biscuits ready for us when we arrived, which is a very nice personal touch. There is a folder in the apartment with very detailed explanations of how everything works. The apartment is very clean, we would highly recommend it. Thank you.

Lovely apartment centrally located

  • 4 of 5

Very pleasant stay here. Nice living room and amenities. A little more attention to the condition of some aspects of the home would have garnered 5 stars. We would come back!

The absolutely perfect size and location

  • 5 of 5

Margie was wonderful we got to the apt. later than expected and she made and extra trip

back after we were settled in to explain everything. We had snacks and some drinks ready for our arrival which was a wonderful touch. The apartment is located within walking distance of almost everything in town. (Stores, Restaurants, Museums, Gifts, Pubs) The people were so friendly it was like stepping back in time. I can not say enough good things about Margie the property and the town itself. We stayed in Dublin for a time as well and all 5 of us decided that we wished we had stayed in Kinsale the whole time as a home base. We saw Cork, Cliffs of Moher, Killarney National Forest -horseback riding and Blarney Castle all from this location. There is also a playground in town that my grandson loved. We will be back in the future. Thank you so much for allowing us to make memories

Easily the best stop of our trip and a first rate property

  • 5 of 5

First off, Margie was great. Our apartment was clean and fresh. It was convenient to everything in town, especially a walk down the steps to the best coffee/pastry shop for breakfast everyday. When we go back to Ireland Kinsale is our first stop and back to Margie's place.

Charming cottage ideally located in the village

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I had a wonderful stay in the efficient, clean and perfectly located apartment in the heart of charming Kinsale village. Margie, the co-owner was lovely and went out of her way to spend time with us going over everything even though there is a detailed instruction book on how everything in the apartment works. We fell in love with Kinsale thanks to our stay here and are definitely going back soon and we will again stay at this cool little spot.

Favorite of all houses rented in Ireland.

  • 5 of 5

We loved everything about this property in Kinsale. We made breakfast every morning in the well equipped kitchen and relaxed every evening in the cozy living room. We sleep very well in the comfortable bedrooms. We were never bothered by street noise. It was easy to walk to town to enjoy the many bakeries, cafes and restaurants. We would highly recommend this property to anyone visiting Kinsale.
