After reading some not so good reviews, I wasn't sure what to expect. The hotel is old but the rooms were modern and clean, with comfortable beds. The staff were friendly. The location is great - right across the street from the harbor. The parking and gym facility were free. The gym was small but had the basic cardio/lifting equipment... More

Acton's has been transformed into a lovely modern hotel in the heart of Kinsale! We stayed for three nights and enjoyed its bar, breakfast, leisure facilities and food! We'd definitely recommend and delighted to see a nice central hotel!

Last Minute search on TA found this what I would call Old English Style Quality Hotel in an excellent location at the Harbour. Nice Rooms, Good Service, food looked good but didn't partake on this occasion. Could have availed of some great offers if had read the website. Good value Hotel.

Sorry to leave. A classic Hotel that does it all. A two night stay that was so relaxing. A fantastic breakfast buffet with everything-smoked salmon, cheeses, breakfast cooked to order. We didn't eat in the Restaurant but ate bar food both nights, no complaints. Fresh & tasty & served just right. The bar area has lovely lounge style tables, really... More

We only spent one night at the Actons, which had been recommended to us by a pub manager in Waterford. Our room was a beautiful, huge, water view room with a claw-foot tub in the bedroom. Besides the tub, the bedroom had a huge bed (the largest of our trip). We went out that night to a wonderful pub with... More

We spent 2 nights last week in this very tidy, bright and comfortable hotel located on the beautiful Kinsale harbor. The staff was helpful, even showing me how to use the phone we bought to use for the week. The room was very clean, spacious and modern with the bed being the most comfortable of our whole trip. The best... More

Our 1 night at Actons was a nice interlude to our usual practice of staying at smaller B & B's. We opted to pay a little more for a room that gave a view of the harbor. It was very spacious and tastefully decorated with 2 double beds and sitting area. The buffet breakfast is not to be missed with... More

Just back from a wonderful stay at Actons. Lovely view of the harbour (costs a little but more but definitely worth it). Leisure centre is also a plus. Great breakfasts and the bar food is really good. But highest praise goes to the staff. So friendly and helpful and really made our stay.
