Georgian Estate in Kinsale - Ireland's Gourmet Capital
***We welcome enquiries for reduced stays. Contact us if interested in less than 7 nights. We regularly have availability from Sunday to Friday (5 nights). Note that there are now direct flights from Boston/Providence to Cork Airport on Norwegian Air***
This house is a fully-restored private estate on the outskirts of Ireland's premier tourist town and gourmet capital, Kinsale. It was built in the late 1700s with 10 foot high stone walls bordering its 40 acres - so you get the true sense of an exclusive Irish Georgian estate.
There are many activities around Kinsale - including the world-famous Old Head Golf Course which has been voted 'World's Most Spectacular Golf Course' by Links Magazine; several equestrian centres with both indoor/outdoor arenas, country rides and beach riding; outdoor activity centres with sailing, windsurfing, boat hire etc; sail and power boat hire companies; and many shops, art galleries, cafes and restaurants in Kinsale.
It is also at the start of the famous West Cork Tourist Trail which starts at Kinsale and winds its way around the coast to Bantry. Other popular tourist destinations within 1 hour are Cork city, Blarney Castle and Cobh (the last port of call of the Titanic). And within 2 hours drive are Killarney, Kenmare, Waterford, etc. Shannon and Dublin International Airports with many direct flights to the USA are around 2.5 hours drive from the House.
You will have one staff member on call to answer any questions or solve any problems you may have during your stay, so you are not left on your own. They can also provide information on day trips, tours and sights to see in the area.
The 8 bedrooms for your use are in 3 different wings of the house. Also some of the King beds can be split into 2 singles if you require. You will also have a large living room, TV room, dining room, sitting room and outdoor dining areas, as well as a domestic kitchen. If you would like our chef to come in and cook for your group - either breakfast, lunch, dinner, BBQs, picnics etc - this can be organised by prior arrangement at additional cost. Please let us know your requirements and we will organise it for you.
We look forward to hosting 3RD HOME members in our home.

Georgian Estate in Kinsale
This Georgian Estate in Kinsale is an amazing property. The staff was very helpful in arranging activities, breakfasts, and a pizza party. They suggested interesting places to visit in the area. You won't regret using five keys for this memorable experience!”
Book this property immediately! Incredible!
We could not have had a better stay in this property: it was absolutely incredible! Gorgeous, quirky space with top-notch staff and incredible amenities. On booking, we wondered about the value of the mandatory daily fee, but believe me, the service and cuisine are worth every Euro and more. The staff was highly attentive, professional, and easy to work with. We traveled as a group of eight and worked with the host to organize a private birthday dinner party, including a live traditional Irish band (Fiona Tattan). It was wonderful! The food was arguably the best we had in ten days in Ireland. The daily continental breakfast is sumptuous and delicious. The grounds are beautiful and easily accessible by taxi for a night out in Kinsale pubs. Overall, we could not recommend this property more highly and already cannot wait to return.”
This Ballinacurra House was utterly amazing! It is everything that it appears to be from the pictures. We had a great concierge and a wonderful dinner/party. It is also truly only 5 min from town and very convenient. The only drawback is the charge of 50 Euro per person for a breakfast that is not hot. Otherwise, all is great!!”
Best Location in Ireland
We could not have picked a better spot in Ireland, in the gourmet capital of Kinsale, close to one of the top rated golf courses in the world, and convenient to coastal drives and scenery. The entire staff at Ballinacurra were exceptionally friendly and helpful in every way. The culinary school located on the property lived up to its reputation in providing unbelievable meals for our guests. A must stay if in Ireland. Sandy and Minouche Robinson”
