This accommodation has the most perfect view! You couldn't stay anywhere nicer in cork if you tried.. close to a lovely pub called the bulman and only down the road from the Spaniard inn! Cannot wait to go back

A hidden gem is how I would describe Abigail’s Lodge Kinsale. A very warm welcome from Daragh was followed by a detailed viewing of this hidden gem. Daragh is very proud of his creation and it shows in every detail. A1 rated is no mean feet to achieve. The view is unreal. The complimentary homemade brown bread (made by Daragh) is to die for. And then there is the location.Its Ideal, Bullman bar and restaurant is literally next door. Charles Fort just up the hill. I highly recommend this for a break . Will definitely be back sooner rather than later.
