The space
Driftwood is a hidden gem! A private detached studio apartment for two people. In a unique waterfront setting just minutes walk to the lively heart of Kinsale.

The interior is light and comfy with a velvet sofa and fabulous wood pellet real flame fire, we even provide the fuel for you!

Overlooking the sea, the king size bed with a new firm mattress and fresh white pure cotton bedding will add to a great nights sleep.

The wall of windows are double glazed and the entire building is extremely well insulated, keeping you snug even in the harshest storm!

Driftwood has a shower room with cruelty free toiletries, fluffy towels and fresh dressing gowns.

The double doors open onto your own private terrace and garden.

To get even closer to the water, you have the unique shabby chic hut sat on the edge of the harbour wall! With a table and chairs, it’s the perfect spot for a sundowner on sunny evenings. Blankets provided!

You’ll find a small and well equipped kitchen with Krups coffee maker, French press, microwave, twin hob and under counter fridge. Perfect for simple breakfasts.

Dartington glassware, crockery and all the utensils you would expect to find in a good kitchen. Driftwood is also stocked with teas, coffee, sugar, biscuits and milk for your arrival.

You’re not limited to cooking during your stay! Kinsale has the best range of restaurants, we have a guidebook with our personal favourites, but there's many more!

Car Parking. We have an agreement with the owner of a closed bar about 50m away to allow us to use his car park for our guests. Whilst we cannot guarantee a space it’s usually available.

Ian and I really enjoy hosting and try to ensure both Driftwood and The Boathouse offer the level of comfort, privacy, facilities and standards we love to find when we travel. We’re easy going, we love the sea, sunshine and our two rescue cats! We both love to travel (usually!) and eat. Ians a windswept windsurfer who you may see flying out across the harbour. I like design, creating, sewing and planning our next trip away (or just dreaming about it at the moment!)
