Kinsale is a small, historic town on the south coast of Ireland, lively and well known for its restaurants, sailing, golf and angling.
We are just twenty minutes drive from Cork airport and thirty minutes from the ferry port.

Comfortable self catering with well equipped kitchen area and a very good shower.
The studio is available for a long winter let at reasonable rent.
Cork airport is 20 minutes by car and there are daily flights with Ryanair, Aer Lingus and others.
Popular surfing and Blue Flag swimming beaches are only 10 minutes away (with very good bass angling). Whale and dolphin watching trips run every evening in the summer. Several charter angling boats operate from Kinsale and there is seasonal salmon fishing on the River Bandon. There are three local golf courses and many more in south and west cork. Sailing, angling, wind surfing, kayaking, riding and rock climbing can all be organised: or just relax with art, pottery or yoga lessons. Not far away to the west are the beautiful coastline and mountains of West Cork and Kerry. Our studio accommodation is an ideal base for a self catered holiday in West Cork - quiet and private, but convenient for everything you need.

I had a wonderful time in Kinsale. Heather and Graham were exceptionally accommodating especially with my shifting arrival time. The suite was lovely and very comfortable. I'd highly recommend the orchard house to anyone coming to to Kinsale
Our stay was a highlight of our holiday. The studio was very clean, comfortable, practical and quiet. A great location from which to explore the town of Kinsale on foot. Our 4 day stay was not long enough. Thanks to Helen and Graeme for making your studio available.
Très beau quartier calme et logement très agréable, bien aménagé et bien décoré. Nous avons passé un excellent séjour. Nos hôtes ont été discrets et très aimables.Même les chiens étaient très sympas !
Our stay at the orchard was perfect! Very clean, comfortable. .We had everything we needed. Helen lent to us an adapter ad we couldn't get one in town.We got a little lost finding the studio,and she drove to pick us up which was super kind.We totaly enjoyed our stay at the orchard.
Nice and quite studio in a wonderful surrounding. We had a great time in Kinsale and Helen was a very friendly host. We can recommend to walk to Fort Charles and further in along the coast. And the beach near Fort James is amazing!
Our stay at Helen William's Orchard Studio was a wonderful experience. The room was spacious, beautifully decorated and the grounds were lovely.
In addition to a bed and ensuite, there is a sitting area and kitchen. The kitchen saved us both time and money as we could easily make light meals. It is a very short walk into Kinsale which is a wonderful town. I think Helen's place would be preferable to a town center hotel because you can avoid the crowds you won't have parking problems you may have with these hotels. I highly recommend the Orchard Studio.

About the Host, Helen
Hi to all you travellers out there.
I'm a teacher and Graham is a semi-retired fisherman. I'm doing my best to keep him off boats but the idea of a big catch can be too tempting sometimes. When not fishing he is gardening and has turned this garden into a paradise in the summer.
We love animals and the outdoors. There are some lovely walks around Kinsale which conveniently end in a pub or café.
It's such a great little town with bookshops, cafes and great restaurants-see you soon!
