We stayed just the one night at Woodlands House, and it was wonderful. We were greeted by Valerie and a pot of tea. The rooms are spotless, the food superb, and nothing was too much trouble for either of them. We had a flat tyre and Brian kindly pumped it up with his footpump!

A short ride, or walk to town, this bed and breakfast is a great place to spend your time in Kinsale, your hostess ( Valerie) will welcome you, ( even if you arrive late, like we did) The breakfast is very good and freshly made. The rooms are larger than your typical bandb rooms, wish they had a few more... More

Fresh tea biscuits and scones on arrival - only one of two on our two week trip for a B and B too offer this. Located a handy short walk from the Kinsale action and great views of the Kinsale bay. A nice room, great breakfast and a convivial host. Fully recommend.

A wonderful, clean, comfortable B&B. The breakfast was exceptional and I couldn't get enough of the soda bread. The walk back from town is not far, but a bit challenging for one of us, as it is uphill.

We had a one Week Trip through Ireland and the Woodland House was the best of all the B&B we encountered. The Rooms were spacious and the owners were really kind. After a nice run in the morning along the Scilly Walk Track we enjoyed a delicious breakfast! Full score!

The hosts are very hospitable and welcoming. Our room was big, comfortable and clean. Its a 10 to 15 minute walk to the city centre all downhill so be prepared to walk back up a steep hill on your return. Otherwise you can find a park in a cark park closer to the centre. Breakfast was delicious.

We had a lovely stay in this comfortable and cozy B&B. Our hosts were so warm and friendly and took great care of us, from securing dinner reservations to a very nice breakfast (love that soda bread)! The bed was very comfortable, and the wifi also much appreciated. And I loved seeing all the family photos, especially of the darling... More

Stayed here for a few days and it is lovely. Nice hosts, good breakfast, no complaints. If you want a quiet room, ask for room 7 (I think that's the number). It's at the back of the house, at the top of a staircase. It's the only room up the staircase, so it was pretty peaceful. Nice and clean, comfy... More
