Marina View, Kilmore Quay
A stunning two-bedroom apartment right in the centre of Kilmore Quay village and offering both harbour and sea views from its spacious and light living space. We've equipped the apartment with high quality furnishing and accessories to make sure you have everything you need. There's super comfortable beds, a well equipped kitchen, cosy blankets for evening snuggles in front of the contemporary wall-mounted fire and buckets & spades for long days on the beach - you won't want for anything.
Although we're sure you (and your pooches) will spend most of your time outside enjoying the amenities this stunning coastal spot has to offer, if you do choose to stay indoors, there's plenty to keep you all entertained. We've provided traditional games (Monopoly, Kerplunk, Scrabble, Jenga and more) for the family to play together; if reading is more your thing, you'll find an eclectic selection of books (if you don't finish one, feel free to take it away with you - we just ask you replace it with one you have finished for our next guest to enjoy). There are also some chews to keep your four-legged friends occupied too...
Kilmore Quay offers a huge array of things to do, places to visit and stunning scenery to see. There are several high quality dining options for example, you can eat in or out at Kehoes chipper (voted in the Top 10 of Ireland's chip shops) or enjoy a beautiful meal at The Silver Fox restaurant. If pub grub is more your thing, then you can wander a few hundred metres up to Kehoe's or walk/drive the 2 1/2 miles to Mary Barry's in Kilmore village.
