"Fantastic accommodation in the heart of Kinvara - it's a home away from home (highly recommended)"
Myself and my partner stayed in the Fuchsia house for one week, and we had the most amazing time there. So much so, we wished we could live in such a lovely place in London. The house was the perfect size, it was beautifully furnished, and was very clean and warm. To be honest, this is the one place I've stayed in where the photos on the website don't do itself justice. It had a beautiful view of the pier and Dunguaire Castle, and it was in walking distance to all the great traditional pubs and amazing restaurants e.g. Piers Head + The Tide Full Inn. We've already recommended it to friends and family!
