  • Description


    I am an actor and theatre maker. I moved to Kinsale nearly 6 years and ago and started my own theatre company and well I just love it here. My house is an old 1940's farmhouse with views over Kinsale harbour and the Old Head Pennisula. The house is bright and warm and very welcoming. Situated 3 km from Kinsale town, it takes about 45 minutes to walk, so a bicycle would be a really good idea, if you have no transport.

    I do have a dog, Buzz and a cat, Puck who are really very friendly. Buzz love walks around the area and for sure he would love to go out walking with you. I travel a good deal for work and so helping mind the pets would be great..

    Originally a medieval fishing port, historic Kinsale (from the Irish, Ceann tSaile – ‘Head of the Sea’) is one of the most picturesque, popular and historic towns on the south west coast of Ireland. Just 30 minutes for Cork City and the first stop on the Wild Atlantic Way, Kinsale has so many things to do, on and off the water. From historical walking tours, ghost tours, castles, forts, galleries and shops, arts & crafts, horse riding, golf and the recently launched Kinsale Gourmet Academy – you’ll never be bored in Kinsale! With three marinas, a yacht club, two outdoor activity centres, boat and yacht hire, harbour cruises, beaches, sailing, kayaking, fishing and scuba diving there is so much to see and do in this busy harbour town.

    Big surfing nearby too.. Garrestown beach is about 8 Km away from eh house.. more details here..

    Also the Permaculture course at the local college has brought in a great mix of international students and so the town has great initiatives for sustainability and the environmental.

    Large double room with super comfy king size bed. Views from bedroom are stunning, as the house sits out on a pennisula with very little passing traffic. Quiet and peaceful, the house is warm and friendly with two pot belly stoves in the two living rooms downstairs and also an open fireplace in your bedroom. There is a large shared bathroom upstairs, with bath and electric shower, plus another bathroom downstairs. Small vegetable garden out the back which leads out onto fields and a short walk to the coast..
