MARY FLANAGAN HUNT purchased this house in 2005

Why MARY FLANAGAN HUNT chose Dromderrig

This property is on the waterfront with lovely sea views, and a short walk brings you to the pubs and restaurants, After holidaying in Kinsale on several occasions we came across this property and fell in love immediately, the half door was just attractive and unique. There is no better setting in Kinsale than Worlds End area in my view, DO COME AND VISIT AND EXPERIENCE FIRST HAND.

What makes this house unique

The Location, why be in Kinsale and not have the views and yet be in a nice homely residential area.

What a special treat!

  • 4 of 5

What a really lovely cottage. Beautifully equipped, comfortable beds - but most of all a perfect position. The teasing seal only added to the pleasure. So thank you to Mary.

Home Away From Home

  • 5 of 5

My family and I, my wife and three children , (and later in the week granny) had a super week in Kinsale staying at 2 Lobster Cottage. The property itself is more spacious than it looks in the photos and is bright throughout, a home away from home. The location is perfect, a short work from Kinsale town centre, but also the right side of town for exploring West Cork saving you from driving through town on day trips etc. We found everything within the property one could need, all mod cons as it were, and the owner was lovely and responded positively and promptly to any requests. Highly recommended.

Owner's Response: Thank you and your lovely family for booking no 2 lobster cottage. Glad you enjoyed your holiday, and also thanks for leaving it spotless. Hope to see you all back again sometime,. Mary

Lobster Cottage in Kinsale

My cousin and I stayed in Kinsale at one of the Lobster cottages. The home was very comfortable, clean, and located within walking distance of Kinsale's town, pubs, shops, etc. We highly recommend staying here and look forward to future visits.

Perfect location

  • 5 of 5

Lobster cottage is absolutely lovely. It's location was perfect for us - just a short walk from the town center. Directly across the road is a small pier and we loved watching beautiful herons and seals gather there everyday, waiting for fishermen to arrive and throw them scraps - quite something to see from your sitting room window! The house is very well equipped and comfortable and has a lovely homely feel. I would definitely recommend staying here. Thanks Mary for your warm welcome and hope to see you again!

Great visit to Kinsale

  • 5 of 5

Had a wonderful stay at the Lobster Cottage. Mary, our host, couldn't be nicer and more accommodating. If you are looking for accommodations in Kinsale that are within walking distance and offer charm, this is the place. We are coming back soon!
