About This Listing
Kinsale is just one of the most amazing & beautiful places to visit! With all its lovely restaurants & galleries (one of which I have the pleasure to work in!!!) its a great place just to wander around.
I am offering a lovely bright comfortable double room (not en-suite) in a charming terraced cottage.
Only 7 mins walk from the town center.
Shared sitting room, kitchen and bathroom.
Breakfast is continental - choice of cereals, fruit, teas & coffee available in the kitchen area.
This is my home & live in this terraced cottage with my little dog "Lady" who has a lovely friendly temperament & sleeps most of the day!! She does bark at the door bell, she is not aggressive just very protective of me!!
The historic seaside town of Kinsale is internationally renowned for its beautiful surrounds and gourmet & seafood restaurants, some of the best in Ireland!
The numerous fine restaurants all offer superb cuisine and ambiance. At night the town is buzzing with Traditional Irish music & live bands in the bars.
Kinsale also has much to offer tourists from water sports, world class golf courses, historic walking tours, beautiful walks as well as offering the perfect location to sit back and simply relax.
Try the lovely walk up to Charles Fort and call for a sneaky drink & snack in The Bullman, one of our many traditional pubs on your way home!
Kinsale is served by an excellent hourly bus service from Cork city which conveniently calls to Cork Airport which is located en route 15-20 minutes from Kinsale.
An hourly train service connects Cork to Dublin.

The location is terrific, easily within walking distance of the town center. The apartment itself is nice but not enormous. Our bedroom door was immediately next to hers and it would have been nice to have our own bathroom. Still, the room served our purposes very well for the night and at a good price.
Sinead was an amazing host! Her house is lovely and in a great location. There is parking nearby and the walk to town takes a minute at most. My wife and I had a wonderful time touring Kinsale and it was made so much easier staying here. We slept well knowing Sinead's dog, Lady, was guarding the house ;)
Kinsale is a very lovely town, and so do Sinead's place and hospitality! Her house is very stylish, warm and clean, with a cute doggie too! Breakfast was ready for us early in the morning. Sinead is so friendly and nice who offered useful travel tips to us. I hope we can meet again in future!
Sinead did a fantastic job of making us feel welcome in Kinsale by immediately offering tea and conversation. The room was just as described and the view was perfect. Even though we only stayed one night, we loved the town of Kinsale and it felt quaint and peaceful. Sinead offered lots of suggestions in the way of restaurants, pubs and things to do. Her home was clean, tidy and felt like home. She offered us a great breakfast and we were able to come and go as we pleased. This was a great first impression of using Air BNB and we only wished we could have stayed longer!
Myself and my sister stayed with Sinead and she was a fantastic host. She was so welcoming and her dog, Lady, is absolutely gorgeous! The room was lovely, light and airy and the bed was really comfy too.
Sinead has the house immaculate and it was lovely to stay there.
It's literally only a 5 minute stroll from the main town of Kinsale which is so handy too. Both my sister and I would definitely recommend staying with Sinead. Oh, and I forgot to mention, she has cappuccino too (my fave!) :)
Sinead was ago friendly and helpful. We booked to stay with her last minute and she made sure we had all of the information to get there and for things to do around south west Ireland. Her place is very comfortable and she really is a top host. Thanks again for the great experience.
