Lovely 3 Bedroom Bungalow, well equipped in a good location, ideal for bringing a car over.

  • 4 of 5

The bungalow is roomy and well maintained, and was immaculately clean. 3 good sized bedrooms (1 double, 1 twin and 1 single). The kitchen was well equipped and the back patio has a lovely view over the River Bandon. The location was a 5-10 minute walk from the centre of Kinsale. Its location, just outside the town centre was a plus for us as we had brought out car over from the UK and didn't have to negotiate or park in the streets in the centre of Kinsale and there is ample space on the driveway for two cars, Can highly recommend the accommodation to a family or small group, and despite the changeable Irish weather, my girlfriend and I had a lovely week there.

Owner's Response: I'm glad that you enjoyed your holiday. We find the location ideal, being so close to the town's centre. Parking can be a problem in Kinsale, especially in the peak season. Being able to park at the house and walk to the pubs, restaurants and shops is a real bonus. We often find that, after flying over and hiring a car, we park it on the drive and don't use it again until we return to England.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review. We do try to ensure that our guests have a nice experience during their stay. The house has been redecorated this year and improvements made. We have several guests who return regularly. We feel that, being just a short walk to the main centre, the house is in an ideal location for the shops, restaurants and pubs with live music.

From the Owner

My wife, Mary, is Irish and comes from nearby Bandon. When she was a little girl she often used to visit Kinsale with her family. It was her ambition to have a house in Kinsale one day. That dream came true in 2003. We love the position of the property, being near to the centre. Also the garden and view.

Activity and Interests


Kinsale has a glorious sandy beach on the other side of the harbour 5-10 minutes drive away.


Cork Airport is approx 30 minutes drive from Kinsale as is the nearest ferry port. Car hire is not essential as the house is a taxi ride from the airport and only 5 minutes walk from Kinsale Centre. However, West Cork is a beautiful area and is certainly worth exploring by car.

Further Details:

Kinsale has many shops with all trades covered and the Supervalue supermarket is very handy in the centre. There are many restaurants with very high quality food in this gourmet capital of Ireland.

The South West corner of Ireland is known for it's beauty and dramatic coastline. There are many places of interest to visit and only a few are mentioned here.

Cork City is within 30 minutes drive of Kinsale and is a thriving, vibrant place. Standing on the banks of the River Lee it is the second largest City in Southern Ireland and owes it's origins to St. Finbarr who founded a monastry there in the 6th Century.

Clonakilty (home of the famous black and white pudding), Skibbereen, Glengarriff, Killarney, Bantry and Blarney are all within sightseeing distance of Kinsale. As is the Ring of Kerry, including the beautiful lakes, Gap of Dunloe etc.

Cobh, the last port of call of the Titanic, is well worth a visit. The Heritage Centre tells the story of emigration from Cobh in the period of the famine in 1845 up to the era of the great Liners in the 1950s. The historical role which Cobh harbour has played as a port is also illustrated.

From the Owner

I find Kinsale a magical place. Not too big and not too small. Nice and friendly local people. There's a good variety of pubs/restaurants serving high quality food. We love to watch live music and there is plenty to choose from in Kinsale. Our house is in an ideal location being in a residential area and just 5 minutes walk to the centre. It also has great views and a nice garden.
