Arriving weary after travelling all day I was looking forward to a friendly B&B. They were overbooked and had moved me to another establishment. No notice and no ensuite. Not happy that I wasn't given a choice or advised so that I could have gone elsewhere. I had to return there for my breakfast. That was even more of a... More

If you're from the States, don't stay here. The manager is very unfriendly but the women she hires are great. The rooms are tiny; the bathroom door hit the bed. It's clean and tidy because the women that work here do a nice job.

The Rockview was centrally located near the city center and grocery stores. The Irish breakfast and the breakfast ladies were perfect. The room was dinky, with no place to sit down other than the bed. The bathroom was microscopic and it was difficult to flush the toilet. The paper thin walls and horribly lumpy mattresses made it difficult to sleep.... More

I would not recommend this accommodation to anyone. The rooms were clean but tiny and their was barely room to turn around in the shower room. The whole place is badly in need of refurbishing and not conducive to a comfortable experience

This is an odd B&B with tiny rooms and even tinier bathrooms. The shower really needs some help in the water-pressure department, as it took a lot of patience just to get my hair wet enough to shampoo. But the bed was comfy and the room was clean. Breakfast was excellent and the staff was kind. I hope to return... More

Greeting was very rushed, not told about WiFi or password. Walls paper thin could hear everything and full conversations from other rooms. TV close to ceiling unable to see it that high up. Very noisy w street noise.

The Good: This B&B had a good location and the breakfast was good. Mary made our food and she was great. She talked to us and we enjoyed her cooking. She provided local info that helped us on our journey. The Bad: The beds were not comfortable at all. All 4 of us didn't have a very good nights sleep.... More

Our room was spacious and quiet...However WIFI did not work...too low of a signal as shared between 2 B&Bs (think owned by same people). 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
