Self-catering studio in Kinsale : L-shaped kitchen/sitting/ bedroom, plus bathroom. A ten minute walk from the centre of town - attached to the owner's house - set in a wooded cul-de-sac - private and quiet.

The space

A very private studio apartment in Kinsale with its own entrance, patio and parking area. It is attached to the owners house, but completely separate, in a peaceful location in a large, quiet garden with no traffic noise.
An easy walk to Kinsale town centre with all its cafes and restaurants (10-12 minutes). There is wireless broadband and satellite multichannel TV.
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.
The studio is an ideal base for a holiday in Kinsale with its angling, sailing and golf, or just to relax. Convenient for day trips to West Cork and Kerry.
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.

Helen and Graham are gracious hosts. The studio apartment is spacious and super clean and comfy and in a very nice neighborhood. Very convenient to Kinsale. We would certainly stay there again.

We had a wonderful 3 nights at the cottage! It was very cute and comfortable, and had everything we needed for our stay. Great beds, shower, and kitchen. There was a grocery store nearby so we were able to have most meals in the cottage. We loved the neighborhood and the beautiful views. Downtown Kinsale was a short, nice walk from the house and had many restaurants, pubs, and shops. I would definitely recommend visiting this city and staying at this house!

Bight and airy, the Orchard Studio has a beautiful garden view from every window. The apartment is comfortable, cozy, and has all you need to feel at home. Helen shared many suggestions that made our stay most enjoyable. From the serene studio, it's a quick walk down to town. The walking paths by the river, around the harbor, and past the fort are a wonderful way to explore Kinsale.

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.

This accommodation suited my husband and I very well. It was situated a healthy walk from the main town and was in a very quiet area. The studio was very well equipped and very clean. It was lovely to sit in the large, interesting garden after a days wandering. Helen had kindly provided a lot of food basics which made self catering easier. We would definitely stay there again.

A great studio nestled into a mature, well landscaped estate with a beautiful garden onsite. A welcome post dinner and drinks stroll from Kinsale. The hosts were easy to communicate with and anything you could wish for in a well equipped Air BmB was onsite. Great shower pressure! Arriving to find milk, tea, proper coffee, brownies and eggs was a lovely touch. Quiet surrounds and an excellent base for Kinsale and wider West Cork exploration.

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!
