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.

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
