If you’re looking for the perfect place for a weekend for two in County Cork, this beautiful detached apartment on the waterfront is more than ideal.

You’ll find this gorgeous little apartment in the lively little fishing village of Kinsale, a stone’s throw from many of the county’s top attractions.

Beautifully decorated and with stunning sea views, you’ll never want to leave this one-bedroom, detached studio on the harbour. 

A home right on the water

This detached studio apartment, known as ‘the Boathouse’, is right on the waterfront in a desirable part of Kinsale town in County Cork.

The one-bedroom place has an outdoor terrace where you can enjoy the incredible views over the harbour and town.

The interior has been newly refurbished with perfectly modern décor and cosy furniture. You’ll find a small kitchenette which has basic cooking facilities to make a simple breakfast or cup of coffee.

Beautiful coastal views

The coastal views are what really sets this place apart from the many other unique Airbnbs in Kinsale (there’s a lot to choose from).

There are double glass doors at the front of the apartment where you can enjoy the sea views from the comfort of your bed. All the windows offer plenty of natural lighting and welcome fresh salty air into the apartment.

If you visit when the weather’s fine, you can walk out onto the terrace and sit back while watching boats sailing past in the harbour that stretches right across the front of the property.

A gorgeous interior

This place has plenty more going for it other than the views. The recently refurbished interior has a fresh beachy theme with plenty of whites and blues in the décor.

It’s been furnished with comfort in mind and has wooden flooring, fluffy sheepskins, crisp white cotton sheets, linen cushions and woollen blankets. 

What you can expect if you visit

You can have the entire detached studio apartment to yourselves if you book this place.

There’s one bedroom for two people with all the modern conveniences and facilities that you need. You’ll have access to the following amenities:

  • Terrace facing the sea with chairs to enjoy the view
  • Kitchenette for simple or basic cooking needs
  • Wi-Fi throughout the place
  • Heating for cooler nights
  • A spacious bathroom with a double size shower

There’s no TV in the apartment but it gives you more of a reason to enjoy the stunning view out the window instead.

How much a night will set you back

It’s a little on the pricey side, but for a romantic little getaway by the sea, this beautiful place is worth the splurge (it’s also a perfect base for tackling some of the many things to do in Kinsale).

So, I put in a weekend in December for two people sharing. Here’s how much it worked out at:

  • Total price: €527
  • Per person: €263.50
  • Book a night or see more here
  • Note: if you book an Airbnb using the link above, we’ll make a small commission. You won’t pay extra, but you’ll help us pay the bills (cheers if you do – it’s appreciated).
