We stayed for 6 nights and really enjoyed our stay in Actons. After a bad start on the first night (our room was directly across from the lift) we were moved to another room further down the corridor with an even better view of the harbour. Room was lovely but very warm at night time, despite having a small fan.... More

We stayed at the Actons Hotel for one night at the end of our tour of Ireland, and would definitely recommend it. One of the plus sides is its location in the center of Kinsale, just on the picturesque harbor, and the free parking area within the hotel premises. We read that the hotel has been recently renovated, and in... More

Recently our family of four stayed at the Actons Hotel while one daughter and my husband participated in a Father-Daughter Golf Tournament at Old Head. The hotel is very nicely located in the charming town of Kinsale near some great restaurants and pubs, right on the Kinsale harbor. We had a suite on the back of the hotel, which was... More

Caring and attentive reception staff made us feel welcome. Our room was spacious and overlooked the Harbour. Highly recommend Actons for the overall experience. The hotel is well situated for walking tours of Charles Fort and James Fort.

We spent the night here on our driving trip around Ireland. We couldn't get reservations at the two places we had chosen to eat, so we ate at the Actons restaurant/lounge. We were very pleased. The food and service were very good. The hotel is right on the bay, so there was a nice view from the room. Unlike many... More

My wife and I stayed at this hotel during our 2 weeks in Ireland. It was a bit mild in Ireland during this time (25C). The hotel had no air conditioning and opening the windows did nothing to cool the rooms. They only were able to provide a small fan but even if it was a very large fan, it... More

Roaring and shouting until all hours Double windows didn't even keep out the noise The room was stifling hot and we were given an a/c unit and this helped a bit in... More
