Wonderful location - definitely the most unique and beautiful spot to stay in Kinsale! Gorgeous water views from each room. Keep in mind that you will have to park your car away from the house in town and be shuttled back and forth by Diana (who is really a lovely host!). Wifi was slow but there! Diana left croissants for us every morning, which was a lovely touch. Thanks!

We loved this studio. The walk to and from town was enjoyable for us. Others may not feel the same way. The studio was larger than appears in photos. The sunrise was spectacular after a night of rain. We would recommend this studio for up to two people. Everything was as expected, clean, on a lovely pedestrian path, with the most lovely view of the Kinsale harbor. Kinsale is wonderful and we wished we planned a longer stay in the studio. One could easily spend a week here.

My husband and I stayed a couple of days in Kinsale and were lucky enough to experience this very special place . From first contact with Diana, who was a delightful host, to our sad day of departure our time here was wonderful in every way . The kitchen was thoughtfully stocked and also had breakfast supplies which was a real treat. Accommodation is very cosy, comfortable and full of character. The views are spectacular , the garden is beautiful and all within walking distance along a beautiful tree lined path to kinsale in one direction and the fort in the other . It was a combination of the beautiful , peaceful setting , the comfortable accommodation and the hosts kindness and hospitality that made this place so special . Mike and Diana have worked hard to create a very special place and we thank them for sharing it with us and others .

Our stay in Kinsale was absolutely picturesque. The view from the cottage is unbeatable. Great location for those looking for some relaxation. The cottage is in walking distance to the town and other local eateries. Diana was an amazing host and was available for any queries or advice. She also provided bread, milk, and coffee which was great to get us started. HIGHLY recommend this stay!

This cosy cottage was the perfect place for a relaxing few days. Diana was extremely helpful during our stay and giving us tips for transportation and restaurants. We were pleasantly surprised how close the cottage was to Kinsale. All in all, the best place to stay when in Kinsale!

Where to start! Diana is a wonderful host. Not only is she an excellent communicator, but she goes the extra mile to make sure your stay is flawless. Their property is fabulous, right overlooking the bay, and embedded in nature. Everything you could want and more, for a relaxing weekend or getaway.
