We absolutely loved our stay at Lobster Cottage... so much we decided to live in Kinsale! We were planning on moving to nearby Cork but absolutely fell in love with the town, the area, and the lovely people here. It only took us 2 days to sway us from the bustle of Cork to the calm charm of this gorgeous seaside village.
The first person we met of course was Ian as he welcomed us warmly shortly after our arrival. The house was well maintained and appointed and Ian couldn't be a more gracious and accommodating host.
We had a month's stay in the house while looking for a permanent home and Ian was greatly helpful in both advice about the area as well as providing us a lovely reference for our new landlord. If we had to stay in Kinsale again, we'd definitely look to staying in the house again and will certainly recommend to our family and friends.
We really enjoyed our four weeks in Lobster Cottage #1. Ian is a great host. He provided an excellent orientation, and was very responsive to our needs. Not that we needed much. The place was in great working order and well equipped, including both a clothes washer and dishwasher. The beds were comfortable, and the living/dining area was nice, especially in the cozy glow of the gas fireplace. The three bedrooms allowed us to have family visit us from the USA. The location is great. It's right across the road from the harbor. The views from the cottage are wonderful. You can watch the sunrise and the boats in the harbor from the windows and the front patio. There is a fishing boat quay directly opposite the place. The cottage is less than a mile from the center of town, and less than that to the nearest pubs and restaurants. Kinsale itself is a delightful town with interesting shops, great pubs -- some with live music -- and many stellar restaurants. It's in a beautiful part of Ireland, with fascinating historic sites in the area. The only negative is traffic noise on the road between the cottage and the harbor. Having said that, we would gladly stay at Lobster Cottage #1 again.
J'ai vraiment adoré la maison du 1 Lobster Cottages... dans la ville de Kinsale. Je m'y suis sentie tellement bien, mon fils et mes amies aussi... À quelques minutes du centre ville, tout était parfait...
Lobster Cottage is a clean, modern, comfortable residence with a great view of Kinsale Harbor. The kitchen, dining and living areas were particularly nice. Ian, our host, was a good communicator, clear and timely. The Cottage, as advertised, is in fact a 5 minute walk from most restaurants and shops in town. However, it is located on a rather busy road, the R600 and the front facing rooms are noisy at times. Also, the beds have footboards, which makes them tight for even average size men.
Thank you for your review - all of which is appreciated.
Firstly I would like to thank you for the manner in which you left the cottage after your stay. This was very much appreciated and helped immensely with house-keeping.
This is the first occasion that I have had anything other than positive feedback in relation to the beds. I have registered your observations and should the issue be raised at any point again in the future, I will of course replace the beds in question without delay.
With regards to the front door lock, it is a standard "off the shelf " door lock as supplied by any doors manufacturers.
It is appreciated locking it may cause an issue to someone on the initial occasion they go to do so, so it is something which I will ensure I demonstrate with all future guests.
As the door unlocks like any other door I see no reason why this would present itself as a hazard should it need to be opened in a hurry, but thank you once again for your feedback.
Thank you for staying with us and it was a pleasure hosting you in Kinsale. I am thrilled you enjoyed your stay.
We stayed in Kinsale for a long weekend and Ian was the best host. He arranged our airport transfer with a reputable taxi company. The cottage is beautiful and located with stunning views of Kinsale harbour. We thoroughly enjoyed the trip and will most certainly come back and stay at 1 Lobster Cottages!
The cottage was lovely and very well equipped, Ian was very friendly and helpful - I managed to leave a pair of shoes behind and he has organised sending them on to me., which is great.
Kinsale is a very pretty town with lots to see and do and amazing food! The cottage is within walking distance but also far enough out to be our little bolt hole when needed. We would definitely recommend this cottage.
English/German: Great! The Lobster Cottage is nice and comfortable little house whitch is comfortable furnished and has everythink in it you need like TV, DVD, WiFi, dishwasher, washing mashine... It is a perfect place to stay in the vibrant seaside village of Kinsale with its superb restaurants and bars and a good starting point to see the South coust of Ireland (Ian thanks for your perfect tips!). Ian is a perfect host and every question was answered very fast (per SMS). The house is luckily not situated at the end of the world (like the adress is named) but you can start your trips from there. We can really recommend this Cottage.
Toll! The Lobster Cottage ist ein schönes gemütliches, gut geschnittenes Häuschen. Und ein perfekter Ort, um im lebendigen Küstenort Kinsale mit seinen hervoragenden Restaurants und Bars zu verweilen bzw. von hieraus die Südküste Irlands zu erkunden. Das Haus ist gemütlich eingerichtet und alles Wichtige ist (website hidden), Wifi, Spülmaschine, Waschmaschine…
Ian ist ein perfekter Gastgeber, und zur jede Frage gab es prompt (per SMS) ein Antwort. Seine Reise- und Restaurant-Tipps waren Gold wert und haben uns schöne Stunden beschert. Am Ende der Welt (wie die Adresse lautet) liegt das Haus zum Glück nicht, über die Verbindungsstraße konnte man gut seine Erkundungsfahrten starten. Wir können dieses Haus mit guten Gewissen weiter empfehlen.
