Fodor's Expert Review Giles Norman Gallery Townhouse

45 Main St., Kinsale, Co. Cork, Ireland Fodor's Choice

The gallery sells striking black-and-white photos, so it's fitting that the rooms in this carefully restored Victorian house are decked out in black, white, and gray contemporary furnishings, with large photo murals on the walls. Three of the four luxurious, uncluttered rooms have a sea view over the picturesque harbor as well as large flat-screen TVs and tea- and coffee-making facilities. Rooms are airy and spacious, and the generously sized bathrooms have rain showers and Voya's Irish seaweed soap products. The largest room ($$$$) has a living room area, an exposed-brick wall, and wooden beams.
