The distinction between ‘house’ and ‘home’ is a very Irish one. Be it stately or humble there’s no place quite like it in an Irish person’s heart. To welcome guests to Kinsale and make them feel ‘at home’ is what your hosts at Perryville House strive to do. Poised in the centre of this medieval fishing port, overlooking the marina & colourful streets with their forests of hanging baskets and window boxes, Perryville House combines the grandeur of the past, with the luxuries and convenience of today. With all the ambience of a private country home, Perryville House has been stylishly decorated by your host Laura Corcoran, reflecting her passion for interior design and Irish antique furniture. Laura’s sharp eye is evident in every detail, from the blazing turf fires and scented candles, to the baskets of fresh flowers cut daily from her own garden and displayed profusely throughout the house.
At the end of the day of touring & sightseeing your way around Cork County, there is nothing better than the indulgence of sleeping between the finest cotton in a luxuriously large bed, in beautifully appointed guest rooms. Each room has been stylishly decorated by your host Laura Corcoran, reflecting her passion for interior design and Irish antique furniture. Laura’s sharp eye is evident in every detail and all are decorated with a blend of luxury, tradition and imagination.
