Abigail’s Lodge is an elevated pod with stunning sea views that sleeps up to 2 people in a large double bed, an en suite, and kitchenette, it’s your ideal base when in West Cork. You are 20 mins drive from Cork International Airport and 5 mins from the busy tourist town of Kinsale and close enough to walk into town along the amazing coastline walk, which even has two watering holes along the way.
Summercove is the place to be, peaceful yet on your doorstep are some of the best amenities such as, The Bulman Bar/Restaurant (voted the Best Pub in Ireland), Charles Fort (one of the finest star-shaped Forts in the World, 300yrs old), Summercove is the Start/ Endpoint of the Wild Atlantic Way, has a fantastic Coastal Walk which follows the coastline path towards the open Atlantic Ocean and views of the Old Head. There is a slipway and beach close by, people often hire kayaks and go exploring the inner harbour, Bandon river or go into town for a coffee by water! All within 100 metres of the property. In the evening, after days exploring, you can sit and watch the sunset over Kinsale or walk down to the slipway beside the Bulman Bar and sip “Sundowners” as the Sun slips away behind Kinsale to the West, while the waves lap the shoreline beneath your feet. Summercove is a place that you will keep coming back to, its got everything, views, walks, food and people.
This is the ONLY RENTAL accommodation in Kinsale with its own Motor Boat which can be rented by the hour to go exploring further out along the coast and see the Old Head Lighthouse (close to the site of the sinking of the RMS Lusitania) or do some sea fishing, naturally subject to weather, bookings and T’s & C’s.
