Although we are listed as B & B, we are a small Hostel-Type guesthouse with PRIVATE rooms. We do not provide breakfasts. There are very good cafes and restaurants in the Town within a few minutes walk . .Weather permitting you can enjoy using 2 the Sun Terraces. Some rooms have a kitchenette with fridge,kettle and microwave for your convenience. There are very helpful friendly Resident Staff with Cosmopolitan backgrounds, so maybe they speak your language. We are situated about 5 minutes walk from the Town Centre, in a quiet residential street away from the noise of the pubs and night clubs. The house was the residence for the Officers of the Cork Garrison circa 400 years ago. At that time, it was the first house after entering the now non-existent Cork Gate. After the soldiers returned from the Battlefield, they drew water from the well and retired to their huts in the Garden. The Historic Old Town Wall of Kinsale flanks the Boundary of the Garden.
The owner is an Artist, who has transformed an old Historic house into comfortable accommodation. The Art Works at the property are by the owner, which guests can purchase if they so desire.
We are in the same Street as Desmond Castle, which now houses the interesting Wine Museum and was Historically a French Prison where visitors are welcome. There are other Historic places of interest to visit eg James Fort and Charles Fort. etc Kinsale is famous for its Gourmet Restaurants, and the Pubs have live Traditional Irish musicians. There are varied events all year which attract visitors and workers from Ireland and all over the World, so there is a buzzing Cosmopolitan atmosphere in the Town. There are water based sports, a Marina with yachts and sailing trips etc. shark fishing, diving etc , as well as various Courses ( Irish Dancing, Yoga , Pilates etc,) Horse Riding, Golf Courses and beaches nearby etc. There is a regular Bus Service to Cork City and the Airport which takes about 30-45 minutes.
