We were only two so we did not get value for money as we had a spare bedroom. However I would have to say great location, lovely view of the bay. Great kitchen with every utensil you would need.… More

"Perfect apartment with a great view"
We absolutely loved staying at Radharc Alainn. The 2 bedroom PLUS 2 baths made a nice break as this was the end of a 2 week visit to Ireland where we had previously only had 1 bath for the 3 of us. … More

"Charming, comfortable and relaxing week in Kinvara"
Such a lovely apartment overlooking Kinvara bay with its 3 living room windows so we could watch the tides come in and out and see all the sea birds. The accommodation was very comfortable, 2 good bathrooms, good dining area and kitchen. The view was probably the best thing about it and its position in the village (which is gorgeous). Kitchen could have had a bit more equipment (casserole dishes) but was generally good. Only other suggestions: a DVD player as TV is limited and maybe the oil tank in garden could be covered with trellis although we didn't use the garden much as the weather wasn't warm enough. Other than that it was all clean, light and quiet. The lady who cleans was very sweet and owner very helpful.
