I'm not sure why this is listed as a B&B. Having a bar, restaurant, and more than a handful of rooms, I would have thought it qualified as a hotel. Anyway, I stayed here for a night recently and really liked it. We received a proper warm and genuine welcome from a very helpful receptionist. The rooms (although cosy) were... More

We stayed here for 3 nights in September while spending 16 days in Ireland. We enjoyed the town of Kinsale. We were in the "Lodge" portion of the hotel. Had to walk up 2 flights of stairs to our room. Room was small but clean, sloped ceilings so felt a bit claustrophobic (ours was smallest of the 4 rooms for... More

Excellent meals! My girlfriend and I each got the “Special Value Menu” which includes an appetizer, entree and dessert for 26 euros. She had the soup, lemon-peppered chicken and warm chocolate brownie. I had the soup, salmon and mint ice-cream. Food and service were out-standing!

I stayed here with my parents in May and had a lovely time overall. Very spacious room, clean, friendly staff, lovely breakfast, good value for money and an amazing location. I would have given 5 stars if it had not been for the fact that my room was extremely smokey... somebody had been smoking in there for some time and... More

We went there for an evening meal and it turned out to be an evening with live music too. The food was absolutely delicious (monkfish) and the service friendly with the Irish smile we've come to expect on this trip. The music was great and there was a lovely atmosphere in the bar.

Good hotel, bar with great Irish music. Rooms on the street were noisy due to nightlife. Had to climb 2 flights of stairs. Difficult to park nearby. Excellent breakfast with choices. Close drive to Old Head golf course

My travelling companions and I stumbled on to The White House when we got to Kinsale and could not have been more pleased. The accommodations were first rate, the restaurant very good, the music was fun and on top of it all the location is center city. Could not have asked for a better place to stay.
