My favorite stay of our 9 nights in Ireland was the 2 nights we spent in Kinsale at the San Antonio B&B. Jimmie, the owner of the B&B, was so genuinely nice and full of conversation. He gave us suggestions of where to eat, what to do, and what to avoid. Our room was at the very top of the... More

There are a lot of variables in why or why not a B&B may be OK, good, or great. While I agree with the reviewer that said the rooms at San Antonio were nothing special, what is special is the location and the host. Jimmie is a fabulous and gracious host and he has a great location just on the... More

Room was small, clean nothing special. Our host Jimmy was helpful. Breakfast was o.k. nothing exceptional compared to many of the other B & B's we'd stayed at. You had a basic breakfast with no frills. No credit card accepted here. The only draw back here is the room was rather plain in terms of its presentation so was rather... More

I thoroughly enjoyed my stay at the San Antonio, and would happily return. Jimmy, the host, gave great suggestions for pubs and walks, and was a friendly and low-key host. He had a great knowledge of the local pubs in terms of music, and gave great advice.

I recently spent a weekend in Kinsale and stayed in San Antonio and I could not say enough good things about this place. Our host for the weekend was a charming gentleman called Jimmy. He was just brilliant and a perfect host. The B&B itself is a beautiful old building full of character, high ceilings, lovely mouldings, sweeping staircase and... More

We really enjoyed our two nights spent at Jimmie's B&B. It is a very cozy place and we slept so well. We really liked coming down in the morning for our delicious breakfasts. Jimmie is great at suggesting places to see. We will definitely be back to stay when we are in the area again!

We loved our short one night stay here; Jimmie was the definition of a jovial Irish gent and the rooms were spacious relative to other B&bs in Ireland. It was only a few minutes walk to everything in town and in room 4, we had a nice view. Only slight complaint is the sheets were not that soft and the... More

All of the wonderful things people say about Jimmie and the San Antonio are true. If you are going to Kinsale you will not find a more generous host. The rooms are comfortable and the breakfast is outstanding. The San Antonio is in a perfect location to walk to everything. My friends and I will be back! Thanks a million!

San Antonio was a bit of a challenge to find in Kinsale with the interesting street layout throughout the town. After stopping to ask a local for help, we eventually found the B&B where the owner Jimmy greeted us warmly. San Antonio is in a 200-some-year-old house that has a lot of character. Regardless of it's age, the house doesn’t... More
