Actons is an excellent hotel in a beautiful location overlooking the harbour. The staff in all departments were first class, friendly, efficient and welcoming. We had a harbour view room, huge bed, top quality bed linen and towels. The room was serviced daily to an excellent standard. Breakfast was excellent with plenty of choices. Acton's is the place to have... More

This is in a great spot in Kinsale. Great city that is a little touristy for me. The hotel itself is nice but not over the top. I think it is probably the largest and most central location in Kinsale, which makes it worth it. However, it could use some updating. The view of the bay in the morning is... More

My wife and I stayed here for a couple of nights while attending a wedding nearby. Actons is a lovely hotel in a beautiful location overlooking the harbour. Staff in the hotel were all very friendly, helpful and welcoming. Our room was very comfortable, top quality bed/linen etc. and bathroom was fitted to a high standard. It would have been... More

Lovely hotel. Staff were very friendly. Rooms were clean and spacious. Looking out on the harbour. Spent a good hour sitting in the window watching the world go by. Got there early and then spent the afternoon in the pool. The breakfast was one of the best I've had in a long time. Would highly recommend Actons for your next... More

Stayed here with the family for 2 nights during the October school holidays this year. When we arrived, it was the end of the Cork Jazz festival and the car park was full. After we found parking on the street, we were checked in within minutes. Expecting the usual family room of a double, single and camp bed, we were... More

Stayed in a room with one double and one twin bed. Appeared to be remodeled VERY recently...spotlessly clean with lovely appointments. Staff were super helpful and friendly. Very nice bathrooms...Hot walk-in showers, gorgeous tile. Loved Kinsale and were so pleased with Actons. Highly recommend this hotel and travel to Kinsale and Ireland in general. Even with cost of flight, the... More

I was lucky enough to stay here, I normally stay at Cork Airport, but decided to stay at Acton’s because it is only 20mins from the Airport and the location in the heart of Kinsale, beside the sea, is superb. The staff I spoke to were all very friendly and helpful. My room was very nice overlooking the harbour. The... More

Spent a lovely weekend in Actons Hotel early November. The staff are great at this hotel, they really make it. One criticism, they need to sort out the extraction system in restaurant kitchen. There is a very comfortable lounge area, but it is marred with the constant smell of fried food!

I stayed in Acton's for a 3 night break. I chose this hotel over others partly because it was recommended it to me by family members who had stayed earlier in the year. I was not disappointed. Being along the harbour it is easy to find and there is a warm welcome. As I stayed in November there was plenty... More
