Overview

About the property

Kinsale, Ardbrack Heights, waterfront, large balcony 2 double bedrooms

This wonderfully sunny holiday apartment is located in Kinsale's prestigious Ardbrack Heights in the village of Scilly, a ten-minute walk outside the town of Kinsale. The huge floor to ceiling, wall-to-wall windows allow amazing sea views from the master bedroom (breakfast in bed with a sea view!) and the entire sitting room/dining area. Outside, the sheltered balcony, which runs the entire width of the accommodation, is perfect for a relaxing drink whilst watching the sunset or the busy harbour activity.

The two bedrooms sleep four comfortably and the newly refurbished modern kitchen is fully fitted and ideal for a self catering holiday.

The only sounds you can hear from this property are on the water or the bird song, yet a short ten-minute stroll brings you into Kinsale centre. Kinsale is a popular holiday resort for Irish and foreign tourists which is known for its many gourmet restaurants and excellent leisure activities including yachting, sea angling, and golf.

Kinsale - sedate: Not only does this town lay claim to being the oldest town in Ireland, but it is also renowned internationally for the number and quality of restaurants in the town. It is hailed as the gourmet capital of Ireland, with no shortage of pubs and restaurants to suit every taste. However relaxed or active you wish to be on your holiday Kinsale allows you to take things at your own pace.

Kinsale - Active: Sailing, Harbour Trips, Fishing and whale watching, Golf, Horse Riding, Shooting, Archery, Paintball, Windsurfing and water sports - Walking and Historical Visits - Museums and Forts Leisure - Pottery Workshops - Readings - Taxi and bus tours.

Kinsale History: The Battle of Kinsale, fought in 1601 between a combined Spanish, an Irish force and English armies, was a turning point in Irish history. The harbour is guarded by two very fine star-shaped fortresses built in the 17th century: Charles Fort is well worth a visit (guided tours). See also the old Courthouse, now a museum; St Multose Church, built in the 13th century and still in use, and 'French Prison', the 16th century Desmond Castle. There is a signposted tourist trail to this fascinating town with a guide booklet. Take a trip too to the Old Head of Kinsale for magnificent cliff scenery. It was off here that the Lusitania was sunk in 1915 with a loss of over 1,500 lives.

Comfortable apartment with fabulous views and a great base to explore Kinsale.

  • 5 of 5

This is our second time staying at this apartment. Minnie is very efficient and very pleasant so it's easy to organise a great break in Kinsale - you won't be disappointed.The apartment is well equipped -though the furniture could probably to with updating. There are a few flights to steps to negotiate to access the apartment, so not ideal for those with young toddlers or with mobility issues but on the plus side there is easy parking - a real premium in Kinsale during the summer, and spectacular views from the balcony - just have a look at the pics. We had another great holiday at Ardbrack Heights and will definitely return. Thanks Minnie!

The view makes it

  • 4 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay. The view is just beautiful. We were travelling with a young baby so all the steps made things a bit difficult and not being able to park up outside to bring your luggage inside. However the view makes it all worthwhile

Fantastic view

  • 5 of 5

We had a very nice stay, very happy to have found this beautiful apartment with its stunning view. The apartment is very nice, clean and spacious, nice furnished, has everything and its very quite. We did not cook, nor wash, as its a short walk into town, (ca 15 min) either on the road or just in front of the apartments are the steps that lead into the Scilly walk that brings you either into town to many very good restaurants or to Charles Fort and from there going further is a small path, passing a boat yard, through woods, fern, beautiful landscape till the end and you have in front of you the open sea. We loved our stay and would return to the apartment and to Kinsale. The town is very colorful, the people are very nice and friendly, many restaurants and pubs to chose from, very very good food and a very good service. Also there is every hour a Bus into Cork.
