The rental was for one week and the party comprised four friends (male) whose aim was to go fishing and to have a good time in and around Kinsale. The property is a large modern estate house which is well appointed, well laid out and comfortable. The Three double bedrooms (two en suite) were very comfortable and all occupants slept very well. The 'box room' with a single bed (mine) was perfectly adequate in that I slept and lived out of a suitcase! Kinsale centre is c.2km walk, but is mostly down hill. A taxi back costs around E8! This is a great base for exploring south and SW Ireland with both the Ring of Kerry and the Dingle Peninsula being easily accessible in a day. But, there is loads of things to do and see locally.
The owners were very helpful and quick to respond to queries - delightful to deal with.
This was my 6th trip to Kinsal but the first time I have stayed outside the centre. However, I would do it again as the centre can get noisy, especially in summer weekends and I would be more than happy to rent this property again. So, why not a 'five star' score? Because this would mean perfection and so it is unlikely that I would ever give such a score for any property - and one cannot give 4.5!!
