The Perfect Choice
We were three women expecting to enjoy our 2 weeks in Ireland, and we certainly did. The best week was spent in Boland Townhouse. Whether in Kinsale or off on a day trip, this was the perfect home base. It is close to everything and the Bolands are the best hosts one could meet. The townhouse lacks for nothing. They have worked hard to make it comfortable and welcoming.
The kitchen is well equipped if you plan to cook, you can eat inside or on the terrace, weather permitting. It is a beautiful place to start and end your day.
The beds are very comfortable, the rooms spacious, and there are lovely robes in the closet. The living room fireplace and relaxing chairs go well with the selection of music cds, a book from the shelf, and a glass of wine in the evening. There is also television with an abundance of choices. Photos of the townhouse can't fully do it justice but they give you a glimpse of what awaits.
We made use of the bus service, a quick walk around the corner and very handy. The "i" is right across the street. And the marina just behind the buildings and parking lot also straight across the street. From the townhouse you are part of the town but removed from the action if you wish to relax. Good restaurant choices are within easy walking distance and many delightful shops too. Everything can be reached on foot. And Kinsale people are friendly and helpful.
I can't say enough about Tony and Colette Boland. They are super people and really want their guests to have a great stay. We will remember them always.

Best Place to Stay in Kinsale
I was seeking a rental where a car is not required as I did not want to drive in Ireland. The townhouse is in the center of town so the shops, restaurants, and pubs are within steps. The townhouse is very well appointed and the supermarket and food stores are all within a five minute walk. Tony and Collette are fabulous hosts and were available for questions or suggestions. Friends joined me for a portion of my almost three week holiday and we discussed returning annually and we would only want to stay at Boland Townhouse.
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 . Read more

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.
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. Read more

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.

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! Read more
Response from Tony Boland - 12/03/2011
Thank you Maggie for your kind words - very much appreciated.
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!
Excellent accomodation in Kinsale
Lovely townhouse with parking, and all the home comforts you need. Highly recommended.

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.
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. Read more

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. Read more
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.

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.
