The Old Bank House was a great choice for downtown Kinsale. It was a perfect location to walk anywhere in town. The rooms were nice and spacious, largest bathroom in a B&B we had all week. Everything was very clean and comfortable. We ended up with a room on the top floor on the corner with nice views of Kinsale... More

What a beautiful place to stay. Location is perfect for going around Kinsale, reasonably priced considering I booked on the day. The bed was huge and there was even a pillow menu and blackout curtains! The shower could have been a little stronger but as we were at the top floor it's understandable. Very comfortable place to stay. I will... More

Good location right in the middle of town. Staff very pleasant and helpful. Very nice breakfast - good coffee. Clean room, little bit on the small side. Shower not great but just about adequate. Quaint place - pretty on the outside. We were at the back so not much of a view from our room but the rooms at the... More

The old bank townhouse is in a fantastic location right in the centre of Kinsale. I stayed here recently for two nights with my husband. Our room was lovely with views over both the town and the harbour. The room was quirky and full of character with large bay windows, I am told a lot of the rooms are smaller... More

This hotel is right in the heart of Kinsale - perfectly located for exploring the town, or taking a walk up to Fort Charles via numerous tempting pit stops (The Spaniard, Bulman etc.). The rooms are clean and smallish but we had enough room for our suitcases. Staff are very nice and welcoming and the breakfast is brilliant (full Irish... More

This was booked for us as we were doing a group tour. The place was lovely! Our room was a bit small, but I think that's expected in these older places. Bed was comfy, I absolutely loved their shampoo/body wash and lotion used - Honey Bee. The people were so friendly. They even had an adapter that they let me... More

I really liked this hotel, we had a small room overlooking the entrance to Kinsale so it could be a little noisy at night but nothing too bad, it was a very busy weekend when I was there. The staff were very friendly and the breakfast was lovely. I'd go back for sure.

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.
