What Past Guests Are Saying
A great spot!
Enjoyed our stay at Boland's. Tony and Colette are delightful, the house is very well appointed and equipped and in the middle of everything in Kinsale .
Kinsale is a terrific spot to explore Southern Ireland .
Response from Tony Boland - 06/11/2013
Many thanks for your kind review David.
Tony & Colette.
I love this place. It is a beautiful townhouse in a wonderful little town in enchanting West Cork. The owners are extremely thoughtful and they have provided absolutely everything one could need. They are also warm and charming hosts, attentive but not intrusive, and they give excellent advice about what to do and see. It rained a lot when we were in Ireland but with the choice of Kinsale's great wine bars, pubs and restaurants a few steps away, or great Irish seafood and meat to cook in the very well-equipped kitchen in the townhouse, we couldn't have been happier.
In the past I usually preferred staying in a hotel to renting an apartment, but this changed my mind. We have already been back once and I hope that we shall be able stay there again in the future. In fact the only problem with the Boland Townhouse is that it is so hard to leave.
Everything you need as a base to explore Southern Ireland
This is a lovely town house located in the middle of the small town, plenty of shops, pubs, walks and local history all just outside your door. The friendly and welcoming owners have gone to great lengths to ensure you have everything you could need. We stayed with 2 grown-up “children” and there was plenty of room for all. Safe off-road parking is a real bonus and it is very handy to Cork. Kinsale boasts a lot of good restaurants (not all open in the Winter season) and some great pubs.
Couldn't ask for more
Tony was waiting up for us to drive down from Glasgow. Very calm and helpful throughout the welcome. Wine and chocolates of course - very nice touch. Even a mobile phone to help the traveller save money! Flat is very very well stocked. Couldn't possibly want for anything in the kitchen or in the flat. Power shower! Computer printer wifi - even paper! The place is immaculately clean. Washing machine & tumble dryer so appreciated when travelling with toddler. We lucked out booking this place. Kinsale is so small everything is within walking distance and despite being in the centre of town noise isn't an issue. Secure parking on site. Truly amazing for a young family. Tony even moved his stuff out to make space for our bulky buggy! Thanks so much tony!
relaxing getaway in the heart of
The personal welcome and comprehensive visitor pack not to mention the complimentary wine and chocolates which greeted us on arrival is unparalleled in our many holiday trips at home and abroad surpassing even 5 star hotels.The accomodation and facilities are excellent which combined with location in the centre of town make the townhouse ideal for all intending visitors whether families,retired couples or parties of friends.Set in picturesque Kinsale with the harbour and numerous restuarants within a minutes walk it is an ideal base to explore the beautiful surroundings of west Cork.

Great place to stay in Kinsale
If you are visiting the beautiful Kinsale, Boland Townhouse is without a doubt the place to stay, from the position, centre of town, restaurants, shops, pubs, everything you need all within easy walking distance.
The accommodation is excellent, comfortable beds, nice sitting room, kitchen with all you need if you plan to cook, but there are good places to eat out. A welcome pack, a bottle of wine a box of home made chocolates. There is a lovely roof garden where you can sit out to eat, weather permitting. Tony Boland is a very friendly helpful chap willing to help with any queries.
Response from Tony Boland - 07/26/2012
Many thanks for your kind words.
Ideally located in the centre of Kinsale, the Boland Townhouse is top quality accommodation. Everything you could want, and more besides - from the bottle of wine and hand-made chocolates as a welcome gift, to the very convenient parking space. Beautifully furnished , lovely bedrooms and exceedingly comfortable beds, satellite TV, a lovely patio garden, and lots of info on local restaurants etc. Tony was very helpful, particularly when we had a problem with the Wi-Fi, and I would have no hesitation in recommending his property to anyone. I hope to be able go back soon.
Excellent Townhouse in Kinsale
If you want to stay in the centre of Kinsale, Tony's Boland Townhouse is fantastic. I have stayed in lots of apartments across Ireland and Europe, and the Boland Townhouse had the most comfotable beds, Real satelite TV, best reception in terms of wine, chocolates tea / coffee etc, the best information for local restuarants and activities that I have ever experienced. All this with parking, a beautiful patio and situated in the very centre of Kinsale.
Ps. If you love walking try the beautiful Scilly Walk to Summer Cove and the Fort, and the Bullman Restuarant for an early evening meal which is first rate.

A really nice Townhouse in a great location
We thouroughly enjoyed our stay. The townhouse is wonderfully located in a lovely town . Everything is within a short walk, Pubs,shops,restaurants. The townhouse itself is beautifully furnished and has all the home comforts.
The owner Tony Boland is a very obliging gentleman and is there to help.
We had a wonderful stay.

You get exactly what you pay for .
We saw this when we were in Ireland in July 2011 and my wife said that this was the place we should stay on any subsequent visit to Kinsale .
This is our verdict on our weeks stay from 12th to 19th May 2012 :-
Everything that one could wish for when visiting a nice place like Kinsale ; convenient , comfortable and welcoming .
Nice walks up onto Compass Hill with good views & not too strenuous . Good walks to Summer Cove where 'The Spaniard' was visited on two occasions (good food with a nice drop of Murphys) .
Two good take aways from the Indian restaurant (time for a drink in the 'Lord Kingsale' across the way whilst waiting for the meals to be prepared) . And just around the corner is 'Jim Edwards' , good for a cracking lunch .
We are not connected to Mr. and Mrs. Boland in any way so this is just our honest opinion of one of the best holiday accommodations that we have stayed in .

Our stay at the Boland Townhouse was relaxing, cozy, as comforta
We will return in a heartbeat, as soon as we have the opportunity. The house is quaint, beautifully decorated, and perfectly appointed. The kitchen has everything you need to cook up a lovely breakfast, lunch, or dinner. There is even laundry detergent if you find you need to wash some things during your stay. The gas fireplace was at the heart of our most relaxing hours of family time - a welcome, cozy spot to relax after long days hiking the exquisite surroundings of Kinsale. We never used the car while we were there, just walked to historic sites and world-class restaurants, even enjoyed a pint of Guinness at a pub while listening to a great R&B; guitarist/vocalist. The beds are top-notch for comfort and the linens are laundered with a light, heavenly scent. As for service, the Bolands own the gift shop next door, so there is always someone close by if you have any questions. A box of chocolates and a bottle of wine await you on arrival, too!

A wonderful week in Kinsale
Our stay at the Boland Townhouse was one of the best vacations we have ever taken. We have talked about our trip and the Boland Townhouse to many of our friends and family since coming home. We plan to stay there again soon. The townhouse had everything you need and much more. It is perfectly located in the center of beautiful Kinsale. Literally a minute's walk gets you to the supermarket and many restaurants. It has a private parking spot at the front door. The floor plan on 2 levels is ideal for 2 couples or a family with children. Each of the 2 bedrooms has it's own private bath. The kitchen is very well equipped and there is a washer and dryer that came in handy during our stay. Best of all was the kindness of Tony and his wife who made us feel like extended family members.

Absolutely perfect are the words that first come to mind when I think of Boland Townhouse. We stayed here for four nights in October and were disappointed when it was time to move on.
The location is convenient to shops, grocery stores, pubs and restaurants. Our hosts were full of information regarding the town of Kinsale as well as the surrounding area and if they weren't available the bookself was full of informative books and brochures. The townhouse is immaculately clean and perfectly set up for two couples or a family. We took advantage of the well equipped kitchen to cook ourselves some lovely meals using local ingrediants. Parking is at premium in town so it was very convenient having a designated, enclosed, parking spot.
Staying here was the highlight of my trip to Ireland. The Bolands can expect to see us again very soon!
A Wonderful Stay in Kinsale
My sisters and I really enjoyed our time at the Boland Townhouse. It's a perfect location for enjoying everything Kinsale and the surrounding countryside have to offer. The accommodations were cozy and comfortable, and the fully-outfitted kitchen met our every need. I would recommend this place to anyone, and I can't wait to go back!
Response from Tony Boland - 12/03/2011
Thank you Maggie for your kind words - very much appreciated.
Everything you could want in a holiday home
We have stayed in many self-catering properties in Europe and further afield, but this far exceeded our expectations. Spacious, very comfortable, immaculately clean and fully equipped with everything you might want or need in a holiday home. Lovely beds, fantastic shower, jacuzzi bath, computer and even a mobile phone for calling local restaurants to make reservations. Loads of lovely towels and fluffy robes too. A delightful roof terrace, which unfortunately we were unable to use because of poor weather, but I can imagine it would be very pleasant to sit out there with a coffee or glass of wine. Perfectly placed in the centre of Kinsale, near the harbour, and a private parking space too. Very helpful owners who supplied recommendations for restaurants and bars with live music. Would love to go back and stay there again.
Response from Tony Boland - 10/22/2011
Thanks Sally for your kind words. Much appreciated. Tony.
I have traveled to Ireland 12-13 times and have stayed in various accommodations all over the country. I can wholeheartedly say that Boland's Kinsale Townhouse is one of the best places in terms of value, comfort, and location.
The townhouse is situated smack-dab in the center of Kinsale with gated private parking. Restaurants, pubs, shops, and the supermarket are all within walking distance. The property itself has every imaginable comfort. The beds are comfy, the living room is cozy with a gas fireplace, and the water pressure in the showers will just about knock you over! This townhouse is furnished as though it were someone's home. We're not talking about yard sale dishes and towels knocked together to fill the rental property. Everything is of the highest quality, from the dishware to furniture to the white terrycloth bathrobes. And, what a treat to find a bottle of wine and box of chocolates waiting for us upon our arrival! I wholeheartedly recommend this property for anyone looking to visit Kinsale!
San Francisco, California
Sets the Bar amazingly high
We can only echo the other reviews. It was beyond fantastic. Just a few of the many, many pluses: Two big bedrooms, both with lovely bathrooms (one bathroom even had a jacuzzi tub); beautifully decorated; large--completely stocked kitchen (there was even a pastry cutter); washer and dryer; wonderfully cozy, yet spacious living room with lots of light and a gas fireplace, which put out plenty of heat; a lovely private garden; a parking space; and I could go on and on. And best of all, the lovliest landlords you could ask for. Tony and Colette live right next door and were wonderful. We were there a month and we seriously could have stayed forever!!!
And if the above is not enough--it is in the heart of the great village of Kinsale. Everything, truly everything, is walking distance. And there are loads of pubs, with live music almost every night--for what ever your taste is. And . . . .there are just so many "ands" Kinsale is located in a beautiful area of Ireland. We took many drives just to admire the countryside. And (said there were lots) , Kinsale is a sailing town, so there were lots and lots of activities--community theater, old car rally, national chowder cook-off!! A stay at Boland House in Kinsale could get you thinking that relocating to Ireland just might not be a bad idea!!
And once more, I just have to say that Tony and Colette made is just perfect.
Excellent accomodation in Kinsale
Lovely townhouse with parking, and all the home comforts you need. Highly recommended.
David and Chris
Home from home
A very comfortable stay, a real home from home with the inclusive mobile phone, broadband with wi-fi and sattelite TV. Not to mention the dishwasher, washing machine, tumble dryer etc. Both bedrooms very comfortable and the house's position could not be any more central. To cap it all a very friendly welcome from the owners, who were helpful throughout.
We were delighted with our stay in Kinsale which was made all the more enjoyable with our wonderful accommodation.Bolands is located right in the centre of town. We had loads of fabulous restaurants right on our doorstep. Tony was very helpful to us and nothing was a problem. The house itself is furnished to a very high standard and is very comfortable.
We have already recommended here to our family and we look forward to staying here again ourselves.
We just returned from our week in Kinsale last night and I could hardly wait to write this review! It was just perfect. The house is lovely, and Tony and Colette thought of every little detail. Kinsale is gorgeous, and the townhouse is right in the middle of everything! We hadn't really planned on it, but had dinner in almost every night as the kitchen was so well stocked and Kinsale had so many great shops. Don't miss the small but really good farmer's market on Weds. mornings - make sure to try the thyme marianated goat cheese! Kinsale is alo very well located if you'd like to do day trips. Inch Beach took my breath away. We flew into Cork airport - would highly recommend as is only about 20 minutes by car.
Cork airport is only about 20 mins away but unfortunately the flight times didn't suit us, so we flew to Dublin. I have to say the new motorway meant that travelling from Dublin airport was so easy too. The Bolands were fantastic, the left us provisions as we arrived at death o clock! The house is in a fantastic location, we went walking around the town and the area nearly every day. One day we took at trip to Kilarney and another to Cork all within easy reach. This house is lovely, clean, warm and so comfortable. I look forward to a return visit.

Wellford, South Carolina
If you're thinking about Kinsale, this is a great location. We wanted to stay in County Cork and thought Kinsale (with a rental car) would be a good central location. It worked out well. Within walking distance are many restaurants, shops, two grocery stores (open late), and the harbour. The Kinsale tourism office is just across the street.
The townhouse is well-equipped with everything you want, including wi-fi capabilities. There was an iron, vacuum, hairdryer, washer, dryer, refrigerator, dishwasher, big TV, computer, printer and a mobile phone for local calls...very difficult to get all that from a hotel for the same price!
If you stay here, enjoy the drive on R600 towards Mizen Head...you won't be disappointed. Plus along the way you can see the Drombeg Stone Circle.
Luxury self catering in the heart of Kinsale
We stayed with our two children in Boland's Townhouse for 5 nights at Easter. It is one of the best self-catering places we have stayed in and feels quite luxurious. We were greeted by Tony, with wine and chocolates on arrival which was a very nice touch. The place is very clean and comfortable with great facilites like the computer with internet access, jacuzzi bath and reclining armchairs. There were even fluffy robes and trouser presses like in a hotel! The location is also brilliant, right in the heart of Kinsale with all the shops and wonderful restaurants nearby. Highly recommended.

Warm and welcoming "home" with all our needs anticipated.
It was our first stay at the Boland Townhouse and we found the website informative and suitable to our needs. The reality was even higher than our expectations. The welcome was warm and we felt that every need was anticipated. Tony and Colette were ever helpful but not intrusive. The townhouse is fitted and furnished to a high standard and the little extras made all the difference. It was a pleasure to come back to after a day outside exploring the lovely surroundings.

The only thing better than the accommodations at the Boland Townhouse are the Bolands themselves. The townhouse is ideally situated across the road from the Information Centre of this attractive town. The care and concern of the proprietors was very much appreciated and will be remembered together with the natural beauty of southern Ireland.

Location, location, location... spectular
Tony and Colette were so accommodating, unit was even nicer than we expected. We were pleasantly surprised with the decor and layout with a lovely deck off the breakfast area, and just one flight up to the 2 story unit.Private secured parking in front of building, which considering it is located so near the water, and right down town. We were ib a tight time schedule, or would have spent more time there.

Thoroughly enjoyable, warm and comfortable: Delightful hosts.
This is the second stay at Boland Townhouse and I can truthfully say I doubt there is another place within the town that is as well set up and attended as this. I was able to entertain friends from the continent and they, too, thought the facility top rate. I plan to be in Kinsale again within the year and this is the first choice for my next visit. I was completely satisfied and more.
The Boland Townhouse exceeded our expectations!
This vacation rental is even better than advertised on the website. The townhouse location is right in the very center of town with beautiful views across the harbor and includes off-street parking. The townhouse itself has all the amenities you could possibly need during your stay and was spotless. The Bolands went out of their way to make us feel welcome and ensure that we had everything we needed the week we were there. We will definitely stay here again.
Response from Tony Boland - 01/10/2011
Thank you for such a glowing review. I think you were looking at the view with rose coloured spectacles, because, to be accurate, there is no harbour view from the Townhouse. But its not far to go around the Tourist Office!!
Our stay at Boland Townhouse was without fault, from booking through to departure. We stayed the week before Christmas with our two young children - 2y10m and 10m. The location is perfect for exploring Kinsale and the parking space right outside the townhouse is an added bonus. The accommodation was spotless and the attention to detail in providing their guests with everything they may possibly need impressed us the most. The bedroom windows even had wooden shutters and blackout material on the curtains which prevented any early morning wake-up calls from our daughters. If you are considering staying at Boland Townhouse then do so, as you won't be disappointed. We have visited Kinsale a number of times and will return again - when we do, it will be first on our list when checking for available accommodation.

Our wonderful Irish holiday.
This was our fourth visit to Boland House so we know the house and the area very well. The house is lovely very confortable and has everything you would need. Tony and Colette are perfect hosts very welcoming and helpful. The house is also very warm and cosy so perfect for a winter break and there is a lovely patio area to sit out in the warmer weather. The location is excellent right in the centre of Kinsale and a short walk to good restaurants and pubs and there are some nice shops and galleries close at hand. Off street parking is very good and there is a wonderful area to explore by walking or by car. Can't wait to return.

All we could ask for!
Perfect place to stay. Our stay has been over the Christmas holiday. After shopping just around the corner, we put together a full Christmas dinner. Using guides right here on the book shelf we've done a number of the local, recommended walks - one of our favorite things to do. Going out, or staying in, the home is beautiful, comfortable, and extremely well-situated.
We've had a chance to live a bit of Ireland, which is exactly what we wanted, and all we could ask for!
To Class accommodation
The Town House was fantastic and ideally situated for exploring Kinsale and the surrounding area. It is fully equiped with everything you could possibly need and the jacuzzi bath was most welcome after the cold November days. The Bowlands are friendly and welcoming and have attended to every last detail. top Class

Boland Townhouse was perfect!
The house is perfectly located in Kinsale within walking distance of everything in town. The house is lovely and as comfortable as home! Bathrooms and kitchen modern and with everything you could possibly need. Beautiful rooftop patio. The parking was a bonus; we didn't realize how important it would be. Tony and Collette are wonderful hosts and made us very comfortable. Is it for sale, Tony? I want to move there!
Atlanta, GA, USA
Perfect first visit to Ireland
If you are considering a visit to County Cork, I could not recommend the Boland Townhouse more highly. Tony and Collete are the most gracious hosts and the location is superb. The photos just don't do it justice. The townhouse is very spacious and includes every amenity you could ever wish for: local cell phone, computer with wi-fi and a printer, fantastic jacuzzi tub, loads of fluffy towels, comfy beds (with great pillows!), a kitchen fit for Gordon Ramsey (there's a really good supermarket two minutes away), washer and dryer, tons of tv channel choices, and a wonderful patio garden. The Bolands live next door and were always available to answer questions and offer advice, but were never in the least bit intrusive. Kinsale is a beautiful village that offers a perfect balance of quaintness and sophistication. It is also a great home base from which to explore the unparalleled beauty of south west Ireland. Don't miss a drive down the Beara Peninsula! I simply cannot say enough good things about this vacation rental. And what a value! Get here as soon as you can!
Friendly service with precise instructions but the best thing about the property is its wonderful location right in the centre of Kinsale with its own parking space. The house is very well presented with a lovely patio area. This was our second time there and we hope to go again.

Very comfortable accommodation in lovely town
The townhouse was well located in beautiful Kinsale. It was very well equipped with everything to make our stay comfortable, relaxing and enjoyable. Our welcome was lovely and the welcome gift was very thoughtful and much appreciated. The parking space was essential in this busy and popular town. We enjoyed the walks around the area and visited several of the lovely restaurants nearby.
Comfortable townhouse in superb location
The townhouse was very comfortable and had absolutely everything needed for your stay. It is ideally located in the centre of Kinsale with everything on your doorstep. Secure reserved parking was ideal. We were made very welcome by the owners.
Eamon & Judit
Charming townhouse in great location
We spent a week in this very nice, spacious and well-equipped townhouse in the heart of Kinsale. It is ideal as a base for exploring County Cork and is close to some fine beaches, but also has immediate access to the shops, restaurants and pubs of Kinsale. The owners, the Bolands,were friendly and helpful.
Nothing left to chance;its all there
We were 4 motorcyclists;secure offroad parking and grd floor storage for bike gear. Central to all amenities. Superb accomodation and the modern kitchen had all utensils fit for a gourmet chef.Great attention to detail thro'out both in decor and comfort. Beds v.comfortable and showers worked 'just right', no shortage of hot water. Reception on arrival made us feel welcome.A great week was had by all.If there has to be negative then I would advise light sleepers to have the back room. Having said that, it is nothing more than one would expect in such a cental location
All the comforts of home in a wonderful location
Boland Townhouse is located in the heart of Kinsale. Parking space in Kinsale is at a premium, so being able to park your car on the gated driveway in front of the house makes life very easy.
We were given a warm welcome by Tony and Collette Boland, which was enhanced by the provision of wine and chocolates as a gift on our arrival. Tony showed us around the house and each room revealed all of the home comforts that are so rarely delivered by other vacation properties we have rented.
The accomodation is very comfortable. There are also a wealth of added extras that make a difference such as Sky TV, Computer with internet access, Jaccuzi bath etc. We found the bedrooms extremely comfortable and spacious with a plentiful supply of clean, fluffy towels. We were very pleased to find that every little detail had been thought of to make our stay as pleasent as possible, including plentiful supply of such things as tissues, dishwasher tablets and even a mobile phone to enable us to make calls in Ireland without incurring the costs of international calls from our own mobile phones. All of these are small details but they made a real difference.
Kinsale provides a wonderful location for the house with all of the bars and restaurants in close proximity. Cork City is also close by should you want to venture a little further afield. Although the house is located in the centre of town, shutters on the windows help to keep out any noise at night.
We had a wonderful stay in Kinsale at Boland Townhouse and would have no hesitation in recommending the house to anyone. We will certainly be back.

A Home away from Home
My husband and my two daughters ages 15 and 12 just spent two weeks at Boland Townhouse. We were in Kinsale from New York for a family wedding. Tony and Colette were helpful without being at all intrusive. The location was perfect as we could walk to anything we wanted to do in town. It was also nice to know that when we did need to use our car we didn't have to fight for a parking space. The townhouse was clean and neat and was just the right size for us. We had a very relaxing and enjoyable stay in Kinsale. If we ever return we'd be sure to stay at Boland Townhouse. Thanks Tony and Colette.
