Also water in the shower was cold as they forgot to turn on the emertion or something...I had to call and then I was in a rush as I had to wait for water to heat... More

Although this B&B is in an ideal location in Kinsale, there are too many faults to recommend it. The rooms are tiny and the walls are wafer thin. Constantly been woken up doing to squeezing doors and being able to hear all is not my idea of getting a good nights sleep. Don't bother turning on the telly in the... More

I can't recommend this place. You could here every noise from the rooms. Doors and floors squeaked. Needs a major refurb. A lot of traffic noise due to being on a bend. Not for a good nights sleep. Good location is all that this has going for it. Overpriced for what you get.

Breakfast was huge and comprehensive. Staff were cheerful. Location is good. Room was tiny but that was to be expected for this type of building. Water pressure in the bathroom was very low. Not more than a dribble in the morning and we gave up trying to have a shower. One reason we stayed was because we were told it... More

I will start with the good stuff. Very friendly staff and the breakfast was second to none. The location is spot on and walking distance to the town. Ok so the bad stuff... Needs a major revamp in terms of rooms, they are like something out of the 70s, the shower is that small you cant turn around in it... More

We were immediately attracted to the bright cheery exterior. The room was good but small. The en suite was very small but everything worked and it was great. Located walking distance to everything. Breakfast the next moring was very good.
