As often as needed. Live in Dublin so not on site. Cleaner and babysitter available locally. Eva will do key handover or can post in advance. Alternatively I can meet in Dublin and handover there.
Wonderfully quirky town with great pubs and restaurants. Gateway to West Cork & Wild Atlantic Way with amazing scenery, towns & craftspeople. Happy planning!
Bus available from Cork centre or airport at Cork. Car best. Or bike!

Very nice house, central, cosy and clean, both functional and charming: it is even better than the description! Fiona is a perfect host: the "house welcome pack" she left is full of good adresses and things to do - we loved it! - and she answered all of our questions very quickly. The stairs leading to the house were absolutely not a problem, even with a boogie. I recommand this host without hesitation!
Very nice, clean and comfortable house, ideally situated in lovely kinsale.
Fiona is a remarkably welcoming and very informative person. She made sure that everything we needed was there and was overall very caring and checking on us.
location and house were very good everything in kinsale was within walking distance and easily accessible. House was lovely and clean and of a very high standard, everything needed was provided for a very comfortable stay.
Fiona was in contact before and after our stay and was very helpful. A book has left out with all the info we needed about the house and the area. The home is right in the centre of Kinsale, perfect location. The rooms are decent sized and comfortable and the house is very clean and charming! Would definitely recommend staying here :)
L’appartement était propre à notre arrivée
Il est tranquille, cosy et confortable.
Il est très bien situé. Parking très accessible à proximité de l’appartement.
Nous n’avons pas pu rencontrer Fiona mais Eva qui s’est souciée de notre bonne installation.
Fiona a pris contact régulièrement avec nous pour savoir si tout allait bien.
Je suis déçue tout de même qu’elle n’ait pas pris la peine de répondre à nos derniers messages, après notre départ, concernant les doudous des enfants que nous pensions avoir oublié à l’appartement.
Delphine, I'm glad you enjoyed your stay. The last message I received from you was about the bins. I have received no further text, email or message on Airbnb thread regarding the missing children's item. I apologise that you think I didn't respond but I honestly didn't get any message... I will check with Eva & also am down on 31/7 myself and will recheck the place. Can you please describe the item by email to (email hidden) or with Airbnb messenger system. Thanks & apologies again. Fiona
This was our second time in Kinsale but first time for self catering, the location is perfect! So many options just down the stairs. Well appointed home was relaxing and slept our family of 4 very well. Appreciated the extra sink in the master! The kitchen was a help too for quick meals in between the great dining options in Kinsale. The house also has a great bookshelf of local/traveller interest.
