LOCATION - SCILLY
Scilly is a village in itself and is loaded with history - for example the iconic Spaniard Pub and now restaurant also started by the late and famous Peter Barry - also a mere 5-minute walk away and also the equally iconic Man Friday restaurant family run for two generations, a further 3 minutes from there. The famous Scilly Walk runs in front of the house. Here, one can saunter. Along the waters-edge and watch the boats sail in and enjoy the best harbour and sea views in Kinsale. This walk takes one as far as the Bulman, in Summercove, another famous pub boasting food of almost Michelin star quality. If you want to socialize this is the perfect place to be, yet this property is tucked away, hidden behind dry-stone walls and electric gates. Ensuring absolute privacy. However, this is primarily a residential area, boasting high end, private residences interspersed with the odd traditional Irish cottage. Apart from being the most sort after location in Kinsale, it is also quirky, quaint and picturesque.
