We thoroughly enjoyed our stay here. We were given a complimentary upgrade to a beautiful room with a sunroom & large private balcony. The room was clean, elegantly furnished & comfortable. The breakfast in the charming breakfast room was delicious (especially the porridge). The owner was lovely & helpful & the proximity to pubs, shops & restaurants was ideal. There...

I was so glad to be able to stay there. The proprietors, location, breakfasts and comfort all great! The proprietors are a long time owning Irish couple who have an interesting life story. You can tell they love being proprietors and love people and what they are doing and make you feel welcome besides providing fabulous over the top breakfasts....

Let me just start off by saying that we spent 10 days on our trip to Ireland from Seattle and this was the absolute best place we stayed. Kinsale was such a great town with great restaurants and shopping. The hosts, Philip & Noreen, were amazingly gracious hosts. We have recommended The Old Presbytery to every one of our friends...

This is not a B&B it is a fantastic experience. We had a fabulous stay here from the minute we arrived to when we left, the Accomodation is top class the hosts are excellent and the breakfast is to die for. The beds are so comfortable but it's all the little touches like heavy dark curtains, comfortable chairs, good bath...

Yes I try very hard to pick the best B&B's and I did it right here!!! We arrived and the parking lot was full, no problem, she asked for our key's and her husband found a parking space for us, (we had been driving all day, so we were glad for the help). Then I mentioned we wanted to go...

We booked 2 rooms for 2 couples in this beautiful B&B for our 1 night stay in Kinsale during late October, 2016. Our hosts, Noreen and Philip McEvoy, went above and beyond to provide us with everything we needed for a memorable stay. Our rooms (6 and 7) were just gorgeous. Wonderfully comfortable king size beds, luxurious bedding, lovely sitting...

Kinsale is a beautiful town, and The Old Presbytery was a delightful retreat. Everyone was very friendly, and our room was beautiful. The breakfast was delicious, but we never got to partake in the wine and cheese offerings as we were too busy unfortunately. We stayed for two nights, but wished we had stayed for at least 3. There is...

Stayed here for two nights based on other Trip Advisor reviews. Lovely rooms, excellent shower and wifi, great breakfast and gracious hospitality offering great advice on where to eat and what to see. The on site parking is also a great benefit given how tiny the streets of Kinsale are - park when you arrive and then walk everywhere until...

The room was nice, and quite comfortable. The off street parking, though limited, was a big plus. And, the breakfast was very nicely prepared, among the best I gad, at 18 different B and B's over 6 weeks. My only gripe? The price! Nearly $100 for one person, was a splurge/overpriced, and I would have stayed at other b&bs if...
