Final night after 11 days travelling around. What a gem of a find for comfort, hospitality (excellent lady on reception, v friendly and helpful) and breakfast. Quiet stay compared to previous night's accommodation in another hotel. Would highly recommend

10 days on the road living out of suit cases and staying in a variety of hotel (cheap to expensive). Despite the relatively good reviews on here I really didn't hold out much hope for the Old Bank Guest House! Reception check in was great really friendly and informative! I was mega impressed by the room Really big clean and... More

Stayed here recently and thought it was a beautiful townhouse. The rooms are beautifully decorated each in there own style. Bed very comfortable. We enjoyed a super breakfast in the morning, loads of choice. It located in the centre of the Kinsale so everything is within walking distance. The other slight negative (only slight mind you) is we stayed on... More

If you are looking for basic accommodation in the centre of Kinsale, this one will do. My room was very clean and comfortable. You just have to have some ear plugs. The room was warm but if I opened the window, the road traffic noise kept me awake. The floor boards creeks a lot and the walls are very thin... More

Nice effecient hotel in a great location in Kinsale. Includes breakfast at the cafe downstairs. We also had a dinner that was quite enjoyable. Only spent two nights in Kinsale and would go back. Friendly people, beautiful town and beautiful countryside. One of those heavenly spots.

Perfectly located over looking Kinsale Harbour. Fully renovated. Luxury. Very romantic little town.Price was 100 Euro (or about $150 Australian), but the rooms are of a very high standard. This also includes a full cooked breakfast.

Stayed for 1 night in the middle of a 7 night tour of Ireland and we weren't disappointed. Lovely cosy hotel with beautiful décor and a fantastic corner view from our room (room 14). The breakfast and service was very good as were the cakes in their café! Would definitely recommend this place if you're heading for Kinsale.

The check-in was 'brusque' and this is Ireland! The rooms were small and very warm. We had one very rickety fan which helped a little. Bathroom was very small. Noise from hallway(other guests) and elevator was annoying. Breakfast was good but felt very rushed. Having just left a fabulous guest house in Dingle, the contrast was dramatic.

Were it not for the incredibly weak shower pressure in room 17, we would have given . 'this B&B a hearty 5 points. These corner room was large with wonderful views of downtown Kinsale and the harbour. The king-sized bed was wonderfully comfortable, the bathrom is huge (butbeware of the toe-busting step as you exit the bathroom), and the WIFI... More

Of the nine hotels my wife and I stayed over an eleven day period, this was far and away both of our favorites. Quaint spot. Large very comfortable beds. My wife took a long hot bath in the large bathtub. Great breakfast the next morning. Highly recommend.
