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.

Amazing views

  • 5 of 5

Although we stayed in November the apartment was lovely and bright with those huge windows overlooking the water. We enjoyed watching the seals and found some lovely restaurants. Will definitely be back.

Wonderful apartment with a fabulous view of the harbor

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed staying in this apartment. It is a clean, very modern two bedroom unit with a view of the harbor that we just loved. We enjoyed sitting on the deck having a glass of wine and watching the boats go by.

The kitchen is well stocked and there is a very large grocery store in Kinsale, just a few minutes away by car.

Kinsale has a reputation for high quality restaurants and they didn't disappoint. Town itself is small but interesting with a lot of history attached to it.

I enjoyed spending several hours at nearby Charles Fort.

We also drove to Cobh and saw The Titanic Experience. It's a worthwhile 1 hour or so exhibit.

this apartment has the most incredible views, large airy rooms and a very responsive owner

  • 3 of 5

My friend and I loved Kinsale and the fabulous view of the apartment. I would give it five stars if the furnishings were slightly more updated and comfortable. The rooms are bright and airy so a larger couch and at least one chair would fit. There is currently just a love seat with two bean bags that only a child could sit in. Everything is refrigerator white. The apartment is walking distance to everything. We loved the location. There are quite a few steps so getting luggage in and out of the apartment could be difficult for some. The owner was very helpful even though she was out of town
