Perfect staycation home in Kinsale, Co. Cork, for families and hen weekends

If you fancy a family staycation in Ireland or are heading for a hen weekend on the Emerald Isle, check out this perfect staycation home in Kinsale.

Kinsale is a historic town of strategic interest. Indeed, two 17th-century fortresses overlook the River Bandon: the vast, star-shaped Charles Fort to the south-east and the smaller James Fort on the river’s opposite bank.

Kinsale Town is the gourmet capital of Ireland. The reason behind that is probably to do with the town being full of amazing restaurants and pubs that have traditional Irish music played in them most nights of the week.

Just outside of Kinsale Town, you will find one of the most beautiful holiday homes for rent in the whole of Ireland.

It is located on the Wild Atlantic Way, and it has far-reaching views, way out into the Atlantic Ocean for as far as you can see. Plus, it looks out towards the world-famous Old Head of Kinsale Golf Course.

The house is rented out by the owner Ryan O’Leary of Exquisite Holiday Homes, who take bookings via his website and here.
