Newly refurbished to the highest possible standards with spectacular, panoramic ocean views and private balconies overlooking the marina, this exclusive luxury penthouse property occupies a truly romantic location on Kinsale’s historic quays.

At the start of the Wild Atlantic Way, and just half an hour from Ireland’s second largest city, you won’t want to leave. You certainly wouldn’t be the first!

 

Exquisite attention to detail

The apartment is on two levels, with secure access via shared outdoor stairs from a gated quay-side level.

A spacious and impeccably furnished open-plan living space is at first floor level. It is intuitively allocated between seating, dining and kitchen areas, with all of them benefiting from a simply stunning panoramic view across the Kinsale Marina and the harbour.

Central to the living area, there is an Eco conscious hi-tech fireplace, which is instantly controllable.

The dark hardwood flooring evident throughout the home was specially fashioned from reclaimed timber for this project. It is a common theme here that as much as possible, including bedlinen has been ethically sourced locally and sustainably.

An impressive glazed full-height sliding door opens onto a generous timber floored terrace that spans nearly the full width of the apartment and overlooks the dock-side below.

A polished peninsula distinguishes the contemporary galley kitchen from the rest of the gleaming white interior.

To the rear of the living space, white paneling conceals a nautical themed guest WC, and a compact utility station for laundry.

 

Bedroom accommodation

Stairs from the entrance hall lead to up to an ample master bedroom with a king-sized four poster bed at its heart.

The bedroom too has a splendid balcony with glass balustrade and glazed sliding door access to the harbour view.

A walk-in wardrobe has been installed behind the headboard, while radiant white shutters from floor level, augment the electric roller blinds for additional privacy.

As with the living area below, there is another hi-tech letter-box fireplace below a state-of-the-art multi-channel television.

A magnificent bathroom, which runs along one side of the bedroom, features an elegant double-ended slipper bath and a stand-alone shower.

With a second entrance outside the bedroom, the bathroom can also be accessed without disturbing the bedchamber.

Out & About

 

Home to talented artists, fine fishy dining, boutique stores, cute creative design shops and bookstores, multiple marine activities, and historical monuments; there’s always more to discover.

We just can’t list them all, but here are a few of our favourites…

Prim’s Bookshop
at No.43 in the Main street, is a great place to ‘hang out’’, play the piano, ‘check mate’ at chess or simply browse their wonderful book collection. Known for hosting secret, pop up music events. There may also be an opportunity to do what many consider the ultimate experience viz. run a book shop for a day (think ‘You’ve got Mail’).


IRISH SODA BREAD MAKING
Interactive bread making class is also available. Led by a local Kinsaler who will initiate you into all the secrets.

 

The Locality

 

 

Kinsale town, extolled by Conde Nast as one of Ireland’s most beautiful towns, sits at the mouth of the River Bandon, just half an hour South of the magnificent Cork City. This is the Southern limit of the Wild Atlantic Way, Ireland’s 2,500km route that follows the coast to Inishowen, in the North.

Wild Atlantic Way
Click here to find out more…

The genuinely picturesque town has a long and chequered history as a strategic port, but it’s current status as ‘The Gourmet Capital of Ireland’ derives from the quality of its acclaimed restaurants, of which there are many.

Fishing has endured as the primary driver, due to the excellent sheltered harbour. In the mid 1800’s it was probably the largest fishing port in the country, and seafood remains a valuable tourist enticement.

The apartment is close to Kinsale central, and most things are within easy walking distance.

The harbour is also ideal for sailing ships, and the port acquired significant importance during their heyday, both commercially and militarily.

A number of notable buildings survive around the town, including Desmond Castle aka the French Prison – c. 1500; the Market House – c. 1600, and the Church of St Multose (Church of Ireland) – 1190. Local guided tours are usually both fascinating and entertaining.

The are also the remains of two impressive forts built by the English to protect the narrow entrance from the sea. The 17th-century pentagonal bastion of James Fort, and its successor, Charles Fort on the opposite side of the estuary, which is one of the finest surviving examples of a star-shaped fort from the period. Charles Fort continued to be used by the British Army until February 1922.

Completed in 1906 And built for speed at Clydebank in Scotland, the passenger steamship Lusitania initially held the record for the fastest trans-Atlantic crossing. It was also the largest and most luxurious of its day – being surpassed only by its sister ship the Mauretania.

In 1915 on a trip from New York to Liverpool, the ship was torpedoed by a German U-boat 18 km off the Old Head of Kinsale. Taking 18 minutes to sink, there were only 764 survivors.

The loss of 128 Americans in the tragedy is thought to have contributed to their active involvement in WW2, however a number of controversies and conspiracy theories relating to the disaster persist to this day. A museum and memorial garden at the Signal Tower on the Old Head, commemorate the event.

Shipwrecks abound along this stretch of coast. You may be interested in a book by local historian Jerome Lordan called No Flowers on a Sailors Grave which details them.

More from Jerome here…

There are a number of beautiful beaches in the proximity – the nearest being The Dock Beach just across the river, and right beside the Dock Bar. Kayakes for rent here too.

The Siege of Kinsale
In 1601, a contingent of 4000 Spanish troops occupied Kinsale as part of the Anglo-Spanish War and the wider conflict of Protestant England against Catholic Spain, and were surrounded by English army. Attempts to assist them by Gaelic rebel Lords ultimately failed, leading to a breakdown of the old Gaelic system and an exodus of leaders known as the Flight of the Earls, and conclusively to the Plantation of Ulster by Presbyterian Scots.  A decisive moment in the island’s history.

How to get there – Car advised..

By Air: Flights to Dublin, Cork or Shannon airports.
Cork Airport – is about 20 minutes from the apartment.
Dublin Airport – just over 3 hours from the apartment

A wonderful outdoor seating area is provided, and sheltered garden room, should the weather turn inclement. The log burning fire, complete with cooking racks for grilling steaks and burgers is an enchanting bonus for those long evenings.

A wood-burning pizza oven in the garden room is a recent addition, and handmade pizza bases can be supplied if requested.

Depending on the season, there is a rich treasure trove of birdlife to be seen locally.

West Cork is inundated with fantastic food, dramatic vistas, coastal adventures and historical treasures…

 

Here are some of our favourites…

The Locality

 

 

The secluded rural hinterland of the peninsula is mainly given over to dairy farming, bordered by rugged coastal cliffs, sandy beaches, abundant bird life and historical sites.

The Seven Heads Walk offers over 42Km to explore, passing local eateries and small cosy pubs.

The nearest grocery shopping is available from the Eurospar supermarket in Barryroe, less than 10 minutes away by car.

The picturesque fishing village of Courtmacsherry is a short 15 minute trip along the meandering coastal route. Busy during the summer months the village is a centre for sea anglers, whale and dolphin watching tours, plus an array of water sports and skills courses.

 Courtmacsherry kayaking

Timoleague, at the head of this short estuary, has a ruined abbey dating back to the 13th century. The village has a long tradition of Bee-keeping and obviously honey.

The multi award winning historical town of Clonakilty 25 minutes away has quirky shops, cafes and pubs featuring live music sessions, as well as some fine restaurants.
The town is known for its black pudding which is made to a secret spice recipe since the 1880s, but also produces other fine treats such as craft beers, chocolate and gin.

Of course these waters are a familiar haunt for Whales and Dolphins, and there are a number of experienced local boatmen offering guided trips to get up close and personal with them – an unforgettable experience.

Standing on a headland, and clearly visible from the cottage, is the ruin known as Seven Heads Signal Tower. Built at the start of the 19th century, it is one of a chain of 81 interconnected defensible coastal towers constructed to give advance warning of an expected Napoleonic invasion. Messages were passed to the neighbouring tower via hoisted flags and balls. You can reach it from the cottage.

Beaches

There are myriad of sandy swimming beaches dotted along the coastline.

Dunworley, 2Km away, is a real local gem, perfect for swimming, snorkelling, and kayaking and a surfer’s dream when the south westerly winds whip up impressive swells. Children will love exploring the many rock pools filling their buckets with a myriad of marine life. Coffee and snack trucks available during summer months.

Blindstrand and Broadstrand beaches, both hidden secrets and a short 10 mins drive from the cottage offer safe wild water swimming all year round.

The beautiful Blue Flag beach at Inchydoney Island, is family friendly and very popular amongst surfers, with a great stretch of sand backed by dunes. It’s about half an hour away – combine with a trip to Clonakilty.

15 minutes further west, the aptly named Long Strand offers a mile and a half of dune-lined sandy beach. The top end is excellent for surfers.

Warren beach in Rosscarbery (35 mins drive) is a designated Natural Heritage area and a safe sandy beach for swimming and cliff walking.

Of interest is that the surrounding dairy farm is one of five cream providers supplying ingredients for Five Farms Cream Liqueur, an award-winning premium whiskey-based beverage for export – primarily to the US.

How to get there – Car advised..

By Air: Flights to Cork, Dublin or Shannon airports.
Cork Airport – is about an hour from the cottage.

From a derelict Victorian gate lodge, this contemporary restoration celebrates its origins, in a unique location overlooking White Strand Bay, on the Wild Atlantic Way.

Just 50 minutes from Shannon Airport, in the Banner County, home of Traditional Irish music, the Cliffs of Moher and the Burren, this is the consummate hideaway for a romantic break.

 

Stylish yet restrained

In this cottage the traditional stucco cottage walls continue on the interior, and together with the local Liscannor stone floors that feature throughout, create a natural bridge to the outside world – assisted of course by full-height panoramic glazed doors that wrap around the corner of the seating area.

Underfloor heating is supported by a magnificent free-standing wood-burning stove.

For sandy showers – and this is that kind of location – there are two enclosed shower options, one is open to the stars. We love the beautifully hand finished walls.

​The extended living space that is the back garden patio allows you to conclude your day by enjoying oriental bathing in the oversized ‘Ofuro’ outdoor seaweed bath – with hand harvested seaweed from the shores of Spanish Point. The deep design is perfect for a full-body immersion, and straight after, pop under the plunge bucket shower to re-energize.

Dining al fresco has never been easier, with Barbecue and muti-sided chic wood burning stove to warm the cockles.

 

The lodge shares a gritty drive with Armada Farm, a fascinating project which celebrates a no-dig sustainable form of growing, notably by feeding the soil with loads of sea weed.

This gives the produce the traditional flavours delivered for generations of farming along this coast.

During your stay you’ll be greeted by various animals which could include Alpacas, donkeys, sheep and lambs.

Golf, Beaches, Cliffs and Craic – what’s not to love about County Clare?

Lahinch Golf Club

Miltown Malbay, Ennistymon, Doolin and Ennis all host farmers markets where you can taste and purchase homemade local produce such as farmhouse cheese, chutneys and free-range home bakin.

The Willie Clancy Festival – starts first Saturday in July every year – is a week long Traditional Music & dancing festival with classes and events on throughout.

Here are some of our favourites…

 

The Locality

 

 
The small town of Miltown Malbay, a three-minute drive away, caters for visitors, three supermarkets and as many restaurants. It’s one of the centres of traditional Irish music and has a selection of pubs with regular traditional entertainment.

The town is home to the annual Willie Clancy Summer School and Festival, held annually since 1973 in memory of and to honour the uilleann piper Willie Clancy.

It is less than 1km to White Strand Beach. This relatively small sandy beach with a rocky shoreline has been awarded the prestigious Blue Flag award on a number of occasions, and has a summer life guard on duty. There is a beautiful easy cliff walk which starts here.

A few minutes further South is the beach at Spanish Point which is better for surfers. It is so named after the Spanish who died here in 1588, when many ships of the Spanish Armada were wrecked during stormy weather.

photo: lukemcurley

Lahinch beach, 10 minutes north, is a long golden strand directly facing the swells of the Atlantic Ocean. As a result, it is one of Ireland’s most popular surfing beaches.

A bit further on are the Cliffs of Moher. Peaking at 213 metres high, and stretching south for nearly eight km, the dramatic cliffs are probably the most visited tourist site in Ireland.

They are home to an immense number and a variety of nesting seabirds, including the only mainland colony of breeding Atlantic Puffins in Ireland, a species on the decline elsewhere in Europe.

Farther North, 35 minutes from the lodge, comes the Burren with its strange karst landscape consisting of limestone slabs divided by crevices (or grikes). It is famous for its remarkable collection of animals and plants, including orchids and the European Pine Marten.

This is Ireland’s most important cave area, where only one river manages to reach the sea without being swallowed into a sink hole. More than 35 miles of cave passages have been surveyed and some can be explored for nearly seven miles.

Doolin Ferries and Cliffs of Moher Cruises both operate a passenger ferry service to The Aran Islands from Liscannor and Doolin during the months of April to October.

Trips to the two smaller islands of Inisheer at 11km or Inishmaan are make for terrific days out, but to appreciate the cliff fortress of Dun Aengus, a stop-over on Inishmore makes sense.

Dun Aengus photo: Tourism Ireland

The renowned songwriter and entertainer Percy French has long been associated with County Clare. In the late 1800s, he was badly delayed on a journey from Dublin to a gig in Kilkee when his train broke down making him some 5 hours late for the show. He successfully sued the Railway, and the incident led to the song Are ye right there Michael? which became one of the most popular numbers in his repertoire.

How to get there – Car advised..

The Locality

 

 

The busy Carraroe peninsula on the northern stretches of Galway Bay overlooks an Atlantic inlet crowded with islands. The area is typical of the intensely crenulated Connemara coast, with dry stone walls and boggy fields, and big skies.

A drive or cycle around the deeply indented coastline reveals many beaches of staggering beauty, and some of golden coral. You will also discover quirky little fishing harbours which provide sanctuary from the huge Atlantic swells.

The local village of Carraroe has a small supermarket, a great Fish & Chip shop and a couple of cosy pubs.

Wild Atlantic Way

This is a Gaeltacht area, meaning that the thriving local community speak Irish on a daily basis.

There are four summer schools here that teach Irish to secondary-school students from all over Ireland. It is also a centre for the Irish-language media, with the Irish-language radio station, RTÉ Raidió na Gaeltachta located in nearby Casla, and the Irish-language television station, TG4, just a few kilometres east. Church services are conducted in Irish, as are all school and daily cultural activities.

10 minutes away, Trá an Dóilín is a beautiful and unusual Blue Flag beach made of very rare biogenic coral. There are lifeguards in summer months, toilets and great swimming.

Keep your eyes open for the hardy Connemara Pony whose exact origins are uncertain. A breed collected internationally, they are known for their athleticism, versatility and good disposition, well suited to these semi barren peninsulas.

The house is just 40 minutes’ drive from Galway City, the capital of the west of Ireland and second only to Dublin in yearly visitors. With its charming streets, restaurants and nightlife mixed with culture, traditional Irish music and activities for all the family, it is worth a visit.


State-of-the-art Production Facilities in the Connemara Gaeltacht

Studio Cuan is a special Music Production Studio with one of the loveliest recording rooms in the country. It is equipped with excellent facilities to ensure the highest quality for all types of sessions. 24 minutes away by car.

Fíbín Media is an award winning, Television Production Company that have a purpose-built television studio in Galway. 9 minutes away by car.
They also have a mobile recording studio that is available to rent.


 

At the end of August, Carraroe hosts one of the largest annual regattas for Galway Hooker boats – a distinctive form of traditional Irish fishing boat. Some of these sailing boats with their conspicuous rust-coloured sails are berthed at Sruthán Pier. The boats can accommodate heavy loads and was in active service until the 1950′s ferrying supplies, turf and livestock to and from the Aran islands.

Now adays they are mainly used in competitions racing, and there are several regattas along the Connemara coast.photo credit: Ardfern

The infamous Aran Islands at the mouth of Galway Bay are famed for their dramatic cliffs and distinctive knitted jumpers. The three islands have maintained the culture and heritage of traditional Irish life, and fascinate the thousands of visitors who make the journey every year.
They can be reached by ferry from Rossaveal which is on the opposite side of the bay – just 7 minutes away by car – or by plane from Connemara Airport, which is just 10 minutes away by car. The boat trip takes 40 minutes and you can bring a bike, or hire one there.
The spectacular semi-circular stone fort of Dun Aengus – reckoned to be about 2,500 years old – backs onto a 90 metre cliff and is considered one of the most important pre-historic sites in Western Europe.
Not to be missed.

County Cork

On the northern shores of Bantry Bay – the heart of West Cork – this recently modernised two-bedroom cottage preserves its heritage while allowing the outstanding beauty of the setting work its magic.

Wrapped in the enduring melodies of the sea breeze, the lapping waves, calls of sea birds and the reassuring whisper from the woodland behind, this is an idyllic spot to recharge and explore the remote Beara Peninsula and the Caha Mountains on the Wild Atlantic Way.

 

Compact with character

Winding its way through ancient woodland, the driveway ends in a secluded south facing clearing just a few feet above the sea.

From here a weathered iron gate opens onto a gravel path that leads down to the cottage, where a set of French doors welcome you to an open plan kitchen and dining area.

The dining table seats up to six on a cushioned bench and chairs. It is bright with glorious views across the small, well-tended lawn to the sea and hills beyond.

The kitchen is painted in egg shell blue and soft white set off by solid wooden work surfaces, and affords the best in contemporary appliances and below-counter storage.

The Belfast sink, the brushed brass kitchen draw grabs and original door handles provide a link to the past and are a testament to the owner’s diligence in the recent renovation.

A four ringed electric cooker with oven is complemented by a Rayburn range with hot plates and oven. This oil-fired range provides the heating and hot water to the home.

A cosy sitting room with more of those stunning bay vistas adjoins to the dining room.

A sofa and two arm-chairs provide the comfort, and selection of books encourage a curl-up moment on those rare West Cork inclement days!

In addition to the oil-fired central heating, a wood burning stove is sited in the fireplace with an endless supply of fuel drawn from the surrounding woodland in a shed around the back.

 

Bedrooms

Both bedrooms are doubles and have south facing windows, and they each have free standing hand basins.

One bed has a novel system of elevation, devised to catch more of the views…

The bathroom is located towards the rear, and includes both a generous bath and modern power shower.

Out & About

 

Isolated but not remote, the Beara Peninsula defies analysis. The sea, the air the history, there’s so much to explore.

 

 

Mare’s Tail Waterfall

 


More about Bantry

We just can’t list it all, so here are a few of our favourites…

 

The Locality

 

 
The nearest supermarket is in Reendesert a few minutes drive away, but a trip to Bantry town will not disappoint – about 10 minutes – there are several large outlets to choose from.

Bantry has a rich history. At the end of the 18th century a republican group seeking to overthrow British rule in Ireland, and spurred on by activities in America and France, managed to persuade the French to send a sizeable fleet of ships and some 14,000 troops to Bantry Bay.

Wild Atlantic Way
Click here to find out more…

Storms and general mismanagement doomed the Armada – an exhibition in Bantry House details more of this, plus the gardens are fantastic.

Sailing is the most ubiquitous pastime along this stretch of Corks coastline, and Crookhaven to Kinsale there are countless regattas throughout the summer, and great opportunities for the serious sailor to up their skills.

The Ring of Beara road twists its way around this headland, exposing colourful hamlets in its path. Narrow, but with minimal traffic, it is a splendid tour, and the views are spectacular. For Cyclists or walkers the Beara Way https://bearatourism.com/things-to-do/beara-way-walking-route  offers a safer route.

West Cork is blessed with an exceptionally warm and wet micro-climate. The Gulf Stream ocean current ensures that summer sea temperatures are about 17 C, approximately the same as Long Beach California. Here you can find palm trees, luxuriant sub-tropical vegetation and exotic flowers growing in abundance.

The tiny Garnish Island, just off the buzzing village of Glengarrif, 15 minutes away, demonstrates this in a series of gardens flush with rhododendrons, azaleas and other surprising plants.

Further along, Castletownbere is Irelands largest white fish port. The harbour is deep and is reputed to be one of the safest in the world. Sheltered by Bere Island, itself with many ancient archaeological sites, the town has a long military history.

At the tip of the peninsula a spur off the loop road continues to Ballaghboy. From here you can catch Irelands only cable car for the ten-minute ride to Dursey Island.

The rickety car carries six passengers (or the equivalent in sheep) about 250m above infamous Dursey Sound, where strong tides make travelling by boat hazardous.
With magnificent views stretching from the Skelligs to Mizen Head, only a handful of inhabitants brave this wild and windy island.
Dolphins, whales and innocent basking sharks are frequently seen in the surrounding seas.

For a period during the 19th century copper mining was the major industry in the area, and much evidence still exists in the small town of Allihies where there is an interesting museum – and a simply stunning beach.

The Caha Mountain range runs down the spine of Beara, and Hungry Hill is the highest of its peaks.   The panorama at the top is of course staggering, but the route is a bit all-terrain and needs fine weather.

To cross back to Strand Cottage, don’t miss the Tim Healy Pass. This zigzag road is worth it for the wonderful scenery, and is one of the classic Irish Car Rally stages.

Healey Pass

There are ample sites for fishing into deep water straight off the rocky Beara shoreline. Glenbeg Lake, is also teeming with trout and the short Glenmore River spate is extremely prolific, with runs of Spring Salmon coming in March, and Sea-Trout in mid-June to late July.

How to get there – Car advised…

By Air: Flights to Dublin, Cork or Shannon airports.
Dublin Airport – under four hours from the cottage
Cork Airport – approx 1 and 1/4 hours from cottage
Shannon Airport – approx 2 and 3/4 hours from cottage

By Sea: Ferry crossings
Dublin City Port/Holyhead has a fast crossing and is just under four hours from the cottage
Rosslare Harbour for Ferries to South Wales is also just under four hours from the cottage
