I arrived here starving! I know hunger is great sauce but the breakfast that I only have with my partner in crime is Eggs Benedict, was perfect. Lovely place. Friendly staff. Nice to know for when I'm back in Kinsale, the kitchen of Ireland🍀

Overall really enjoyed my stay.Stayed overnight in room 10, lovely room, very clean, nice extras in room-cookies from the restaurant and a nespresso machine, fabulous breakfast, lovely staff. Only issue is the room gets very hot at night. The window opens about an inch. Lucky there was a fan in the wardrobe!

Nicely located in an old building right in the heart of town. Very nice rooms (the suite was a real treat). Good breakfast and a charming staff. Special thanks to Maria the front desk/manager/waitress - a "jacquie" of all trades exceeding in all of them. Conforable beds and very quiet inside, in spite of the "rugby championship" in town with...

Stayed for 2 nights,lovely clean rooms, very nice staff and great breakfasts. Only downside, and it's very small, is that at busy times in the town it can be hard to get parking close by, but would recommend staying here to anyone!

We stayed in the Old Bank house last night on the final night of a week long roadtrip in Ireland - Kinsale was a last minute choice after deciding against a night in cork having read reviews on trip advisor during the week of Kinsale. I'm so glad we changed our plans because this town is charming and so pretty...

Nice and clean accommodation, lovely Nespresso machine, comfortable bed. However, quite overpriced for what you get. Small bathroom, no wine glasses or cork screw in the room, 4 channels on the TV and also breakfast was a little disappointing when I ordered a full Irish breakfast and it came without pudding (even though it was on the menu).
