We spent 2 nights in late Feb at the Actons Hotel & we had a nice relaxing break. Our room was a great size looking over the water, shower only but it had a large showerhead which was amazing! The breakfast is probably the best I've ever had. I ordered the veggie full Irish both days which came with grilled... More

This is probably the best value for money hotel we've stayed in. We got a good out of season rate from the hotel's website. I like Travelodge and to compare hotels I ask myself the question "is this worth paying more than I would for a Travelodge?" So often the answer is no. In this case it is a clear... More

We stayed in the hotel for 2 nights in early February. It was quite late when we arrived - about 9pm- and a girl at the reception just mumbled all the information about our stay. Not good for the first impression. We were hungry so we went immediately to the bar to have a supper.First of all, it took them... More

There was much to like about our two-night stay at Actons: big windows affording a pleasing view of the harbor from our room; the lap pool was the best we experienced in Ireland; airy/clean room and bathroom; comfortable bed; courteous staff. But the floorboards in our room (top floor, northern end) squeaked incessantly. We had to tip-toe, especially at night,... More

Had a mishap with a booking at The K Kinsale guest house. Had a room booked but the place was closed when we arrived. So in desperation we drove around Kinsale until we found Actons Hotel. I had stayed here back in 2002 and knew it as a nice place in a great location on the water. The accommodated us... More

Don't get meeting, all the bedrooms are beautiful & clean, but our first choice of bedroom was at the back of the hotel which looked out onto a dark street & other buildings, the bedroom was very tastefully decorated & huge, but as we don't get to go away that often without 3 children I asked to be moved to...

We stayed here for a Stag weekend. This hotel serves the purpose really well. Its cheap, really well located in the center of Kinsale and the bar stays open pretty much as long as you can drink. The rooms are good, we had room 323 which has really good shower, comfortable beds and the room temperature was perfect. The staff... More

We stayed at Actons last weekend and it was very enjoyable. The hotel itself is location right in the centre of Kinsale within walking distance of everything. The rooms were lovely, and the bathrooms were very impressive, ours looked like it was brand new. We had breakfast both mornings and it was excellent, a large selection from a buffet and... More

We went for a three night stay during Christmas. We booked a room in the front with a lovely view of the water. I felt this was well worth the extra as it was lovely to see the boats out on the water and to see the sun sitting. The room was nice and warm with every thing you would... More
