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 The rooms are dank, dirty, outdated, cold, and in disrepair.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

Only have had coffee here and it's the reason for the review. The coffee here is excellent. Just dropped in while on a cycle pit stop a couple of times. Other fare looks very good too. I'll return for the coffee. Nice relaxed atmosphere also...

My husband and I stayed in Jo's in January. Fantastic location, room was spotless and very adequate for what we needed. The cafe is amazing with the most delicious home baked goods. Had the best hot chocolate ever there! Jo is so welcoming and we could have sat in the cafe all day watching the world go by! We left... More

Stayed in April 2011 with a friend. We were the only one's for that night, so Jo was kind enough to offer us each our own room for the same as sharing a room. Comfortable rooms, especially after a long day walking around and getting lost and driving down a sidewalk trying to find Charles Fort. Close to many restaurants... More
