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 1400 people have stayed in the apartment since we opened our apartment as a 'home away from home' 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 town, lovely apartment, and lovely hostess!

Margie and Alana's Kinsale apartment is ideally located. They are welcoming and helpful.

The apartment is fully equipped and charming. Down the front steps is a sweet little cafe, great for breakfast or lunch.

Can't imagine staying anywhere else in Kinsale.

  • 5 of 5

The apartment was perfect for us. Margie has thought of everything you could possibly need for your stay. She was very easy to contact, had excellent directions to the apartment and is an amazing host. She even left us a bottle of wine and some biscuits to enjoy.

I would highly recommend her apartment as it is fabulous.

Absolutely fantastic. Perfect location with all the amenities. Cafe downstairs makes outstanding lattes. Pubs and restaurants near by are wonderful. When in Kinsale this is the place to stay.

Such a wonderful experience!

  • 5 of 5

What a perfect place for our family of 2 adults/ 2 teenagers. The apartment was very comfortable and had all of the amenities we needed. The kids loved their separate bedrooms and bathrooms. Margie was wonderful with communications before and during the stay. We cooked breakfast in every day and had everything we needed. Having the washer was key as we were trying to travel light. Going to sleep every night while viewing the church tower across the street through our skylight was amazing.

Location was great. The town is amazingly cute and beautiful. Easy walk to restaurants, pubs, grocery store, and sights. Arrived first night at 9 pm and got to see part of the local “ghost tour” right across the street on the church steps. Joined the tour officially the last night for a wonderful local color experience. And then after walked the 10 steps from the apartment to the Tap Tavern where the tour started for local music and conversation. Wonderful!

Highly recommend the apartment
