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.

Really Good Kinsale Apartment

  • 5 of 5

Apartment 2A is a very well maintained two bedroom apartment overlooking Kinsale harbour. The location is wonderful, and the apartments' fully glassed living and main bedroom afford superb views.

The apartment is very well equipped, and comfortable.

We will definitely use this again.

Walkable to everything and world class views make this location ideal for Kinsale holiday makers.

  • 4 of 5

Wonderfully located above the Scilly Walk, this two bed / one bath has big views over the harbor and the town. Walkable to The Spaniard Pub and The Bulman Pub...... and to the whole of Kinsale, the location can't be beat. Waking up to gleaming water views is very enjoyable.

A little slice of heaven

  • 5 of 5

This was the end of our fabulous European holiday, and what a perfect way to end it. We had great communication with Minnie (at one point, we thought she was responding in the middle of the night but she was actually in Australia, answering our questions). We opened the door, and there before us to the right was the harbor and town center, and to the left the bay and the Atlantic. Gorgeous! (Or, as the Irish would say, “Lovely” or “Brilliant” or “Grand”.) The apartment was very clean; it is spacious, organized, and comfortable. It was a most welcome joy to find basic grocery staples provided for us. We did not have a car, but we could easily walk to Fort Charles, the town center for shopping, and to some very good pubs / restaurants. It is relaxing, peaceful, calming, and an amazing place to stay. We can barely wait to be back.

Owner's Response: It is so lovely to hear that you had a brilliant time in Kinsale and our apartment. Luckily I had bought an Australian sim card for my phone so being on holidays myself didn't cause an issue responding to online queries. I believe there were dolphins in the harbour whilst you were there I do hope you had an opportunity to see them. I would be delighted to welcome you back and offer returning guests 10% off future bookings as an added incentive.

Wonderful views

  • 5 of 5

We are just back from a lovely stay at Ardbrack Heights, a 10 minute walk from Kinsale centre and has easy parking.

The flat was very clean, quiet, comfortable, well equipped and uncluttered.

The welcome basic groceries were much appreciated as we arrived at midnight.

The views from the living area, terrace and main bedroom are a delight.

During our stay we had to contact the owner, Minnie, a couple of times and she got back to us in a question of minutes.

We are frequent visitors to Kinsale and this accommodation has now become our favourite. We will be back!
