Description from owner


This beautiful rental property offers luxurious and spacious accommodation in the centre of Kinsale.

Compass Hill House was built towards the end of the eighteenth century, and has recently been refurbished in sympathy with the Georgian aesthetic. It can accommodate thirteen over the full three floors.

Compass Hill House is the ideal location choice for large groups and families, as there are several attractions to entertain all - from golf at the world famous Old Head Golf Club to surfing, sailing, fishing, walking, cycling and other outdoor activities. If you have time, you can put your feet up and relax while watching the to-ing and fro-ing of the harbour.

Compass Hill House is owned by an Artist and a Geologist. Their respective interests and careers are reflected throughout the house, such as the sea shells and rocks found in far-flung places and the eclectic collection of art works that cover the walls. We hope that you will find this house a wonderful adventure in itself.

Getting around

The best and most exciting way to get to know any town is to walk around it. This is especially true of Kinsale. It is a town of small winding streets, which were not really designed for traffic as we know it today. One can wander independently or take part in a historical walking tour or, for the not so faint hearted, the ghost tour. Getting to destinations further along the Wild Atlantic Way you will need a car.

“Highly recommend”

Reviewed 22 Aug 2017

I stayed here for a week with my wife and one year old child. I found the house to be exactly what we needed for a relaxing break away in Cork. The house is ideally located for local pubs, restaurants and sights to see. The house itself is beautiful with a great and healthy mix of old and modern. There is three stories to the house with two kithen and a number of bathrooms and sleeping areas. My son loved the living room on the second floor as it was very spacious and he could explore and play on the floor. There is a big window with an amazing view in this room that also was a point of entertainment for him. I had some family visit the week I was there and you would not notice there was more people in the house as it offers so much space. The beds were very comfortable and we all slept great for the wee, including my son the the cot provided. The garden, provided the weather is good, is beautiful and offers another option for having a BBQ and lounging in the sun. I will 100% be going back to stay here as I loved the area, the house, the commute from Dublin was only 3 hours and the price was very reasonable for what is on offer. If anyone is thinking of going to Kinsale staying here is a must to add to your experience.

Owner's reply: Thank you Alan, such nice words! You are welcome to return any time, and as a returning guest, you qualify for the 10% discount, too. Hopefully we'll be talking to you again soon. Marie-Loiuse & Marcus

“All great”

Reviewed 26 Jun 2017

Owner's reply: Thanks Conor! Congratulations on winning the IRC White Sails Cat 2 in this year's Sovereign's Cup.

“Perfect location, great space for a family vacation.”

Reviewed 11 Jul 2016

We recently stayed at Compass Hill house for a family vacation. We were a group of eight adults and one baby. It was our first time visiting Ireland and the house was the perfect home base for our many day trips and adventures. We had plenty of space in the house for our group, we all ate breakfast together in the kitchen on several occasions, loved the outdoor garden, and most of all appreciated the ideal location. We were able to walk to several lovely restaurants, to the water front, and to do beautiful scenic walks around Compass Hill. We did several day trips in the area and were always happy to come home for a quick refreshment before heading out for dinner. The wifi wasn't always working, however it seemed like it was hit and miss everywhere in Kinsale, and the house wasn't as clean as it could have been, however our whole group would agree that we had a wonderful stay and would definitely recommend this house for anyone with a large group traveling in the area.

Owner's reply: Thank you Dominique for taking the time to do the review. Any time you want to return, just get in contact again, and of course, you'd avail of the returnee's discount! ML
