Since this B&B is a relatively new house and recently redecorated, it does not offer the charm of older B&Bs. However the place has a fantastic view up high overlooking Kinsale and is unbelievably clean and comfortable. The hostess has gone to great effort to provide everything needed. Her linen napkins at breakfast are typical of the way she handles...

Stayed for one night at the start of the Wild Atlantic way and we were really pleased. It's like staying in someone's home and they have not cut any corners. Everything is to a high standard and the rooms although small are impeccably clean and rather trendy. Great linen and towels. Both Claire and Martin were friendly and welcoming and...

Claire the owner is delightful, very helpful with suggestions and great with directions. Our room was clean with individual beds mine was OK, my wife's bed sagged and she was not happy and the linens were so so. You do get plenty of towels. Tea was served all day and night always with cookies and sometimes nice muffins too. The...

Unlike some of the other B&Bs in Ireland, the Rivermount House is closer to a true B&B in my opinion. By this I mean, it's smaller (about 6 rooms) and you actually have the feeling of staying in somebody's house. The quiet location is just outside of Kinsale (not walking distance!) and offers stunning views. Our room was spacious and...

This bed and breakfast has much to offer.It's guest lounges are comfortable and relaxing and the views from them are stunning . Breakfasts are better than good and served by a professional team of staff .Our bedroom and bathroom ,although well decorated, were small .This was a real disappointment given the price paid for our room ..

We stayed for one night earlier this week. The house itself is beautifully decorated and very modern, the rooms upstairs were clean with plenty of hot water which is always good. The breakfast was delicious - there was great choice and I would highly recommend the pancakes - YUM! The only slight downside was that on booking.com, the house was...

Stayed here 1 night. We never met the host or proprietor except for a kitchen worker who came out to take our cash. Booked it and held it with a credit card but when we got there was told only cash. Their cc machine was down. A little inconvenient as we had to run to the ATM and get cash....

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Overlooking the scenic river, Rivermount House completed a total upgrade and refurbishment in 2008. It offers four-star quality at affordable rates. We feature classic mahogany furniture, heavily embossed wall coverings and exquisite soft furnishings, which have all resulted in creating an ambiance of luxury comfort and style. With a classy polished marble foyer, this accommodation feels more like a boutique hotel but with the personal attention and traditional warmth of a B&B. ... more   less
