We recently travelled most of the counties of Ireland during our stay and this B&B ranked as one of the top we stayed at in every category - location, room, service, food, parking. The breakfast has to rank as the best we had the entire trip because it had the most varied menu, executed with little touches that made it...

We stayed here as we toured through Southern Ireland. The owners could not have been more helpful. Our original room was too big for us, but that was all that was available when we reserved. As soon as another room opened up, they kindly moved us without any work on our part. The breakfast is amazing. The second morning I...

This hotel has some good points. It is an easy walk to main street Kinsale. There is parking on site. The breakfasts are very good. They had a good internet connection. The owners are very friendly and helpful. And they had good recommendations for local sites. But the room we had wasn't worth it. The bathroom has only been half...

Dear Hunter.oz, Thank you for your review and your many positive comments regarding our location, breakfasts, parking and service. However, we were disappointed to read that your room was not to your taste. We are constantly improving our facilities but always in a way that is sympathetic to the era of the house. As you see from our website, we...

Philip and Noreen just seem to effortlessly enjoy their job. This made us feel extremely comfortable. They really have a knack of making you feel at home. They were friendly and helpful without being 'in your face'. Everything was just lovely - food, room, views, location. We had a great time.

Spent two nights here in September of 2014. Wonderful lodging experience in a beautiful town. The building appears quite old but is well maintained. Our room on the 5th (?) floor was charming and very cozy. The bathroom was newer and that was much appreciated. Breakfasts were excellent (highly recommend the porridge). Innkeepers were kind enough to book dinner reservations...

Wow. What can I say. Great staff, great room and most importantly great breakfast. This was the first place we stayed on our latest trip to Ireland. Room was very comfortable. They have a car park. In Kinsale this is big plus. Very tight streets. Food was fantastic. Great start to your day. Highly recommended.
