We spent a few happy few days here. Irene is very welcoming and it is in a great location with a fabulous view of the harbour.

Traveling to Kinsale for St. Patricks Day weekend, we were looking for a convenient and comfortable apartment to use as base to explore the area. I can not think of a better place than Irene's Pisces apartment! It is only a 5-10 minute walk into town (and a beautiful 30 minute walk to Charles Fort). The apartment has everything you need, is clean, comfortable and quite spacious. Irene was the perfect hostess with information on things to do and see and shared her big terrace to view the Boat parade and Fireworks. It truly was a special treat to stay there.
We will definitely return to Kinsale and Pisces apartment!

“Wonderful host and incredible view!”
Reviewed 18 March 2014 for a stay in March 2014

My husband, daughter (2.5yrs), and I just returned from Kinsale, and we had such an amazing time! The apartment is perfect, and the view was absolutely incredible! We already had high hopes for this holiday rental after seeing pictures, but I can honestly say the pictures don't even come close to capturing how beautiful the property and surroundings are. Irene is a magnificent host and willing to do anything she can to make your stay enjoyable. The boiler for the radiators had run out of oil when we first arrived at the apartment, but Irene immediately called someone to come fix it and gave us her one portable heater so our daughter's room was nice and warm - such wonderful hospitality! In addition to the view, the location is perfect; you are only a 5 minute walk away from the heart of Kinsale, which gives you the best of both worlds: awesome restaurants and pubs + the peace and quiet of home. I would strongly recommend staying with Irene and enjoying this lovely apartment. We definitely hope to return in the future!

Pisces provides roomy accommodation with all facilities required for a good relaxing holiday. The outlook is fabulous no matter what the weather and Irene a very friendly host. The apartment is well located very close to good restaurants and an easy walk to the town centre.

“Can't wait to come back and stay longer!”
Reviewed 26 June 2013 for a stay in June 2013

We had stayed at The Moorings years ago when it was owned by Pat and Irene Jones and absolutely loved it! We were thrilled to find the Pisces Apartment,owned by Irene and in the same general area of Scilly, Kinsale.The location is exceptional with a 5 minute walk into town and within steps of two of our favorite restaurants -The Spaniard and Man Friday.The view over the harbor is fabulous with a lovely outdoor space to enjoy it from.The charming apartment offers many,many features and has a great layout. Irene was such a gracious, welcoming host...we cannot say enough about her or her property! Thanks again Irene and we are looking forward to our next stay at The Pisces!!
