Kinsale was a highlight of my family's 8 day trip in Ireland, in part to Jimmie's B and B. The location is great, rooms are large and clean, breakfast is fabulous, and Jimmie is endearing. He is always around when needed and provided great recommendations for dinner, drinks, and music. Lovely experience!

Parking is provided, and you can walk to everything in town. Our room was very quiet despite the "downtown" location. Jimmie was a fantastic host; you can tell he really cares about your stay at the San Antonio.

Our time in Kinsale was wonderful and a big part of that was due to our stay at San Antonio B&B with Jimmie. Such a gracious host. The B&B itself is in a great location - just 2 minutes away from many of the great pubs and restaurants in Kinsale (which is such an easy walking town!). The room we...

The San Antonio is a wonderful Bed and Breakfast right in Kinsale. Jimmie is a tremendous host. The accommodations were top notch as was the breakfast. The home made porridge was a great addition to the hearty full Irish breakfast. But what really made the stay was Jimmie. His warmth and outgoing nature will really make you feel at home....

This was our first visit to Jimmie's and it was just wonderful. We stayed two nights at the San Antonio. Jimmie is a great host - funny, accommodating and a pleasure to talk to. He was very helpful in recommending places to see and places to eat. We walked everywhere and left our car near the B&B. The breakfasts were...

On our recent trip to Ireland our family stayed two nights at the San Antonio and wished we had booked for more. The lovely town of Kinsale was one of our favorite destinations and that had a lot to do with the accommodations which included the perfect location, engaging host and phenomenal breakfasts. We left our car parked the entire...

Jimmy was fantastic-humorous, warm, funny, and helpful. We stayed 2 nights and He provided a map of Kinsale and instructed us how to get through town. I was traveling with 2 teenage boys and they also thought the world of Jimmy. On our last day he encouraged me to leave the car in his parking area until I was finished...

Stayed here 2 nights midweek. I just re-read several of the TripAdvisor reviews that led us here and agree with all of them after our experience. Note that there are currently no "bad" reviews of this B&B, which is remarkable considering how many picky travelers there are. We only sampled 10 B&Bs during a month in Ireland and, while not...

Jimmie, our gracious host made us feel welcome, relaxed, and made our stay truly memorable. we had booked 2 nights but decided to stay a third to enjoy the beautiful and historical town of Kinsale.
