Our refurbished Georgian building is now home to the new Giles Norman Townhouse – luxury accommodation offering guests a modern touch of class and comfort right in the heart of Kinsale. We see the guestrooms as extensions of our main gallery – each individual room has been curated by Giles himself, exhibiting pieces from his many portfolios. The townhouse is home to Giles’s studio and gallery – it’s a creative space where his photographs come to life. Our vision was to build an interior aesthetic for our guests that reflects both Giles’s artistry and photographic style. Having previously collaborated with Arlene McIntyre of Ventura Design, we’ve joined creative forces again for the interior design of our guest accommodation.
Kinsale marks the beginning (and end) of the Wild Atlantic Way, and is only twenty-minutes drive from Cork International Airport. Whether you are visiting Kinsale from abroad or elsewhere in Ireland, our guest accommodation will give you the perfect balance of luxury, privacy and prime location. Nestled in the centre of this historic town, overlooking Kinsale’s tranquil harbour, the Giles Norman Townhouse is located within walking distance of the country’s best restaurants, cafés and bars. Kinsale also has a wide range of entertainment to offer its visitors with plenty of land and water based activities, along with various historical tours, scenic walks and coastal drives.
All our guestrooms include tea and coffee (Nespresso) facilities, free WiFi, a flat-screen TV, luxury bed linen and goose down duvets. The Studio, The Ireland Suite and The Kinsale Room offer guests stunning waterfront views of the town’s marina, and feature a super-king bed, which can be converted into two singles. All rooms have elegant en suites with rain showers and organic VOYA toiletries. The Studio is the most spacious of our guestrooms, featuring a living-room area, a free-standing bath and an additional sofa bed, which can facilitate one adult or two children. Please note that all our guestrooms are located on the upper levels of a Georgian building and can only be accessed by stairs.
