About Mark Houston
We have lived adjacent to Marian Cottage and Cara's Cottage since 1999 and have been operating them as holiday lets since 2000. We have been subscribers to HomeAway and its forerunners all this time. We are usually around during your stay should you need assistance but the cottages are completely independent of our own house and we try to be as discreet as possible!
Mark Houston purchased this Cottage in 1999
Why Mark Houston chose Kinsale
Both Marian Cottage and Cara's Cottage are located in Scilly, a village-like community 7 minutes walk from Kinsale town centre. Kinsale gets very busy in peak season so Scilly offers a quiet respite from the bustle in town while being within easy walking distance. We also have off-street parking which is a big benefit as parking in town can be hard to find when the town is busy in the summer months. The Spaniard Pub and Man Friday restaurant are within 1 minute walk of the cottages; 2 of the best pubs/restaurants in town!

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in Kinsale and at this lovely property. It was so perfect for us in every way. Spotless, well appointed and so very comfortable. There were several nice amenities in place when we arrived that were super helpful, such as milk for our coffee and plenty of firewood. Mark is an excellent host, Thank you for a beautiful stay!
It was all I expected and a little more.
A Fantastic Accomodation!
We spent six nights here in Kinsale. My wife and I prefer to walk locally when traveling, so any destination in town was an easy and enjoyable walk. Several quality restaurants were an easy stroll, the the we enjoyed the neighborhood pub (The Spaniard) in the evenings. The cottage is roomy and comfortable, with an excellent kitchen. In the cool evenings we enjoyed relaxing near the wood burning stove, and in the warm afternoons the same is true of the garden patio. A great stay!
Cottage perfect for touring and visiting Kinsale and local area. Enjoyed the cottage and Kinsale
The best in my experience.
Marion Cottage a delightful property, well positioned for exploring Kinsale and the south coast of Ireland. The property was extremely spacious and airy and was exceptional in it's provision of all home comforts.
The owner was particularly friendly and helpful.
I would strongly recommend the cottage.
Kinsale is situated on the south coast of Ireland, at the start of the Wild Atlantic Way, and just 15 miles from Cork and its International Airport. The town is the gateway to the wonderful countryside of West Cork and is famous for its gourmet reputation. Spaniard Pub and Man Friday restaurant within a minutes walk. Walk to town centre in 5 minutes, to find many many others. Charles Fort, museums and other historic sites all within walking distance. Beaches and sporting activities, including sailing, kayaking, horse riding and golf are only a few minutes drive away.
