Recently got take away hot chocolates and croissants from Jo's. They were excellent as usual. The hot chocolate is made using real chocolate so it's beautifully rich and creamy. The cakes are all homemade and the scones look amazing. It's Would highly recommend treating yourself to one!

We were happy with Jo's Rooms. I was traveling with my teenage son and daughter; Jo gave us two cheerful, clean rooms for a great price, each with a private bath. The location was an easy walk to the town center. Also we enjoyed excellent coffee and breakfast downstairs at Jo's. My only complaint is that I had a hard... More

The rooms are bright, extremely clean and spacious for a great rate. I had breakfast in the cafe every morning and it was fantastic! The best scones I have ever had. The owner is very kind and hospitable. I will definitely stay here again on my next trip to kinsale.

I visit the cafe regularly for my hot chocolate treat. They have delicious homemade baking by Jo. Personally, I have to have great willpower to resist for the sake of my waistline. :-) I have tried the gluten free chocolate brownies that my kids love. I have enjoyed lunch there also. Coffee lovers go here for their coffee fix. She... More

I didn't stay here, but last week stopped in on a chilly day to have cake and a hot chocolate. It was really delicious. I feel like that's all that needs to be said! If you are looking for hot chocolate in Kinsale, go here.

What a treat and in a lovely town that my friend and I stumbled on at the tail end of our visit in Ireland. Jo was a gracious hostess with our late arrival. The cafe has delicious pastries and good coffee. All of this at an affordable price. I so look forward to a return visit.

I am a current customer at Jo's café! I always stop buy for a hot chocolate and a cake. Recently in Jo's there has been a new worker and any time I would buy from Jo's she would always end up giving me the wrong change.... I would understand if she would do it once or twice from mistake but... More

Jo's Café and Rooms are fabulous. Downstairs, you can easily eat your way through the bakery counter as everything is spot on delicious! The scones are to die for. Love the white chocolate raspberry ones! On my last day in Kinsale tried the raspberry one on its own and that was great too! The cinnamon buns are fantastic. Really gooey.... More

Loved visiting Jo's Cafe today. Friendly staff, relaxing atmosphere and delicious desserts. We went twice today 'cos we liked it so much. The gluten free orange spice cake was yummy. Plan to go back tomorrow!

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
