My husband and I stayed for 1 night in April 2017. We were welcomed immediately by the B&B's sweet pup Scamp at the door. Noreen was a very welcoming and gracious host, providing a map of the town and recommendations for restaurants on a quiet Monday evening. She followed up with welcoming wine&cheese or tea&scones with homemade jam (delicious). Our...

This is a rave review. While our room at the Old Presbytery was a bit small and idiosyncratic, we had a great view of Kinsale from our window. The furnishings in the room were nice, but the stellar aspects of the Old Presbytery include the fantastic breakfasts (OMG it was good), the wine and cheese at 4:30 in the afternoon...

Best on our trip so far. Noreen is a professional hostess, providing everything before you realize you need it. Her breakfast menu is the best. The most generous portion of salmon with scrambled eggs and fresh to die for scones and other tasty choices. The location right in town with easy parking and strong wifi made our stay perfect. Thanks...

My husband and I stayed at The Old Presbetary on a 15-day trip across the south of Ireland. What a wonderful place to stay. The room was very comfortable and clean. The hotel is around the corner from the town within walking distance of everything. The breakfasts were absolutely delicious. Very quiet location. The owners Noreen and Philip were very...

I'm so glad we chose the Old Presbytery for our night in Kinsale. My only regret is that we only stayed the one night. Next time we will definitely spend some more time in the this amazing property in a beautiful town. Phillip and Noreen were gracious hosts. Everything was perfect from the start. We loved that they had private...

We stayed in the penthouse suite for 2 nights in April. The layout is ideal for a family traveling with kids or a teenager as there is a double bed with en suite bathroom on the first level and on the second level a king bed with an en suite bathroom. The rooms are very nice and the breakfast was...

Six of us visited Kinsale and stayed at the Old Presbytery. We had a wonderful stay! The rooms are beautiful and comfortable, and the hotel management could not have been kinder or more helpful. Kinsale is a "walking town" and this hotel is perfectly situated. We had no complaints and would happily stay there again. One of the owners, Maureen,...

Well everything about the Old Presbytery was wonderful but all my daughter will talk about is the scones and jam. The breakfast was excellent. The room was updated, clean, and large. My only regret is only staying one night.

My husband and I spent only one night at the Old Presbytery - sadly! Noreen & Phillip are great hosts and make you feel very welcome. Our room was very nicely decorated and the bed was very comfortable. The bathroom was a very generous size with a large claw foot tub and large shower. There was a nice, bright vanity...
