Breakfast was had in cafe in lower floor and... More

Great downtown location. Parking can be difficult. Street parking is free on Sundays and there is no enforcement Mon-Sat before 10:30 a.m. Overall nice room but paper-thin walls. Hotel offers pillow options if you ask at the desk. Nice breakfast area.

2 nights in Kinsale on a golf trip. Hotel is right in center of town. Rooms are clean but a bit small. Breakfast is not to be missed at this hotel---best of our trip. Homemade yogurt and fruit to die for,,,eggs cooked perfectly. Walking distance to at least 10 pubs or restruants.

This is a quaint hotel with comfy but not over spacious rooms. Time seemed to stand still here which created just the mood we were looking for. The hotel is in an ideal location -- a close walk to the town center. Kinsale is a picturesque village. The breakfast was hearty and filling.

The most comfortable bed we had slept in during our trip to Ireland! But more importantly the breakfast was fabulous and the service was great too! Kinsale was a really pretty place, great pubs and lots to see, really enjoyed it, should have stayed another night

Here is a small, quaint hotel in an old building on the main street of town. Forget using you GPS to locate this hotel, just open your eyes and look for the sign. This town doesn’t believe in obviously numbering their buildings nor do they have obvious street signs, but the village AND the hotel are worth visiting. From the... More

our happy but tired group of 4 motorcyclists arrived a little late, but to a very warm welcome and brilliant accommodation. Unique rooms with quirky furnishings. Comfy bed, great views amazing breakfast. They even took our food order by email whilst we were 4hrs away on the ferry to Ireland from UK. A gem. A real gem.

We were fortunate to be given an excellent room overlooking the street. Very comfortable, clean and great bed. Breakfast was the best we had in Ireland. The deli store at the front of the restaurant had all the local products at a very reasonable price. Would recommend this accommodation and restaurant.

We only stayed here one night, but it was a nice clean room with a nice view of the street. Room was quiet and comfortable with a big bead. Staff was friendly and the breakfast at the cafe was tasty and filling.
