Our lovely king-size room overlooked Kinsale Bay and provided all the niceties. The perfect spot to retire to after walking around the picturesque town of Kinsale. Breakfast and dinner each morning and evening were exceptional...a large and delicious breakfast buffet and wonderful dinner selections, including beautiful and scrumptious desserts! We hope to return some day.

Stayed here one night in March. The hotel looks out over the water and we were able to find a space in the car park out front. Front desk help was warm and helpful and we went up to our room which was clean but very basic. Perhaps we wouldn't have noticed so much if we had a view out... More

We only came to Kinsale for one night during our recent European vacation - and it was unforgettable! We decided to stay at Actons Hotel because of proximity to downtown Kinsale, and our all-time favorite pub, The Spaniard! The walking around the town was wonderful - people treat you like a local! When we checked into the hotel, the woman... More

The hotel was recently renovated and the rooms do look nice but a bit short of storage. Ok for 1 or 2 nights but if you want to unpack your suitcase it’s a bit of a problem. We had a room with harbor view and that was nice. Being a four star hotel I would also expect a safe in... More

Spent 2 nights in Actons on "midweek special". Everything about our stay was top class. Friendly helpful staff, warm welcome, comfortable room with harbour view, superb breakfast with amazing range of choices and that's only the start. We ate at Actons on both nights and found the food and service excellent. At the nearby leisure centre we dropped into aqua... More

I recently dealt with the hotel organising a party for my sister. Every aspect of the service was faultless. The food, hotel itself and staff were a pleasure to deal with and made all of our guests have a wonderful day and night. A big thank you and will definitely be back in the future.

We had a clean large harbour view room, which was really lovely. The beds were the most comfortable of all our stay in Ireland. The staff are very friendly, the buffet breakfast fruit wasdelicious and fresh, but the smoked salmon was very strong, slightly off in taste. The cooked breakfast was not too good, I think it had been left... More

The stay at the hotel was very pleasant with the room and facilities that were very good. One problem was the parking but with a hotel that popular and catering for weddings you cannot expect anything else. One small complaint was at breakfast when my wife ordered poached egg on toast; the toast was like tinted bread. Obviously the toast... More

Just returned from a short stay at the Acton Hotel Kinsale which is in a very pretty harbour location in southern Ireland. This hotel is spotless with very helpful staff who were very accommodating. Stayed in a habour view room which had tea and coffee facilities and also a hairdryer. Breakfast was buffet style but if you wished a hot... More

Spent 2 nights over the The St Patrick's weekend. Made welcome from the outset and got a feeling everyone was there to make sure we were looked after. Fantastic breakfast served with a smile again. Amazing how many variations of a cooked breakfast the guests were able to come up with. All delivered exactly as ordered. Because of so many... More
