Very much enjoyed my stay here and the cafe downstairs was wonderful. I also could not have been more welcomed and cared for by the staff. Rooms were clean and very comfortable. Hats off to Jo's! ~Gregory

Returned here as it was several months since my previous visit & if anything it was even better this time than last - don't know how you improve on excellence but somehow Jo's manages to do it. Excellent Earl Grey served very attractively & accompanied by the most delicious raspberry & mile chocolate tart ever...... Great ambience; friendly staff; lovely... More

Thank you so much for your kind comments. It has been a busy season and it is so lovely to hear such positive feedback at the end of it. Ps. It took me a lot of tweeking to get the flavours in that tart just right especially because it's white chocolate, but it is one of my favourite too... More

We stayed at Jo's back in June, it was awesome. Jo might be the nicest person in Ireland, and for the Irish that would be quite a title (they are all pretty nice). The location was perfect, the cafe is awesome. You will not be upset if you stay here.

Jo's accommodations was quite lovely. The room was clean and newly renovated It was small, but quite adequate for me to stay the week. The bedding was fanatic! And how "homey" it was to awaken to homemade cinnamon rolls enticing from the cafe below. I recommend Jo's as a great place to experience Kinsale.

Went back to Jo's today. Didn't think it could improve on last time but it did! Best cup of coffee in Kinsale and today Jo brought out her latest creation- a Viennese Opera cake. Even though we had already gobbled cinnamon roll and pistachio meringue we had to try this confection. Needless to say it did not disappoint.

I had a lovely stay at Jo's in August. My room was simple, clean, and comfortable, and the delightful cafe downstairs gave me a good excuse to have a pastry each morning. The location was perfect for exploring Kinsale. I want to thank Jo especially for her hospitality. My luggage was late in joining me, and Jo kindly lent me... More

Jo's rooms are very modest; however, the location simply can't be beat in Kinsale. Also, Jo is a very friendly and extremely helpful. The rooms are over the cafe, and the aroma of fresh baked goods early in the morning is a great way to start the day.

Perfect location to walk to all the sights in Kinsale. Rooms were comfortable, clean, basic, and a good value. Jo is charming and runs a lovely cafe for breakfast and lunch. Enjoyed scones and croissants after a restful night.

We've just spent a week with Jo and her staff and had a wonderful time. The service was always friendly and the quality of both the lodging and the Cafe was exceptional. The room was immaculate as was the bath. The mattress was excellent and a real help to a sore back. We took advantage of the ability to walk... More

This review is for the rooms at Jo's only. I have posted another review for the cafe. The rooms are dank, dirty, outdated, cold, and in disrepair. The shower was clogged, toilet did not flush well, bed was very old and uncomfortable. It was the kind of place where you did not want to take off your socks because the... More
