Arrived with high hopes, but slightly apprehensive as the accommodation was very well priced in comparison to anything similar we were looking for. We arrived down as two families to share the one holiday home (4 parents with young kids). My slight fears of quality etc disintegrated within minutes of arriving. The lady who greeted us made check-in very hassle free and had a genuine pleasant friendly manner. The accommodation on viewing was exactly what we’d hoped for- clean, spacious, and stocked well with all the essentials. The site in general was quite good and although situated on the bank of the Bandon, it had a lovely almost shoreline resemblance. On two of the mornings I brought the kids for a walk along the boundary fence at the river bank we were treated to two approaching seals swimming in the river. Each morning they swam quite close to our viewing area, and were in no hurry to leave. Kinsale in my opinion speaks for itself as regards best holiday destinations in Ireland, and we hope to return many times in the future. Castle Quay holiday homes are about 10mins drive from the town, but to be honest this was little or no hindrance to our stay. (Fota 30mins +/-, and Leahy’s farm 40mins+/-) are both musts for the kids and we returned home glad we chose Castle Quay as our holiday destination.

About the location
KINSALE, COUNTY CORK
Cork 15 miles; Clonakilty 22 miles.
Kinsale is located at the mouth of the River Bandon, on the Atlantic coast in County Cork. Popular with tourists, it is famed for its majestic marina which shelters luxury yachts, and is home to a number of sailing clubs. There are fine restaurants producing gourmet cuisine, and fashionable bars and shops to hold the attention of even the most discerning visitor. The town has a rich history and impressive architecture, whilst retaining a quaint air of antiquity throughout its narrow intersecting streets. Historical sites and places of interest are waiting to be discovered, including Charles Fort, and Desmond Castle, which houses the International Museum of Wine. Further afield, but still within easy reach, is Blarney Castle, where you can kiss the Blarney Stone and leave with the 'gift of the gab'. Whether you try this or not, we are sure you will be talking about this beautiful region for a long time to come!
