Lovely spot for a meal. Ordered the special half lobster and it was fabulous. The burger and rustic chips also went down well. I'd recommend you have food here for sure. Service was great also and the location is bang in the middle of Kinsale town.

We were disappointed in this hotel unfortunately. No A/C, so windows had to be opened to a very loud crowd outside with a band that played until after midnight. The food was average as well. And amenities were missing that we have been accustomed to, such as refrigerator, ice bucket, microwave, and elevator ( we had to lug our bags... More

This is a very old establishment with many odd characteristics but don't let this put you off! The staff are lovely and you will be well treated. As I said the hotel is very old and I thought I had had too much to drink the first morning I rose from bed, until I realised, it was the floor that... More

We checked into the last room. Kinsale is a beautiful port town on the east coast of Ireland. The Lusitania was sunk 75 miles off the coast of Kinsale The White House hotel includes a wonderful restaurant and bar. The staff were very accommodating and friendly. Our room while not air conditioned was very comfortable with a window cracked open.... More

Fantastic location and comfortable bed, but unfortunately a bit noisy for our taste. We stayed in a front-facing first floor room and could clearly hear the singer/guitarist in the ground-floor pub from 9 to 11:30 p.m. Normally, we wouldn't be heading to bed that early, but we were exhausted from a fun day of touring the Jameson distillery in Midleton,...

We loved the location of this hotel for our 2 nights in Kinsale. It is right in the heart of downtown with all the restaurants, bars, and shops right outside the door. The hotel itself has a pretty nice bar. The room was comfortable and clean. My only disappointment was that our room faced the back of the hotel. When... More

Stayed on the White House for one night in big family room. One comfortable king size bed and bed for one. Room was very stylish and well decorated. Breakfast was ok. B&B Location is in the center so finding a parking space on the street can be difficult.

Excellent waitstaff! As one of our first stops in Ireland we were not familiar with many of the beers, particularly the Kinsale ones, and they helped remedy this so that we could select pints we would enjoy. Comfortable booths line the walls of the traditional bar allowing easy relaxation. Particular props to the chips: we seem to have found one... More

We visited this hotel for breakfast while waiting to check into our hotel . It was only 11 am so bar was closed but if you eat you can also have a beer which delighted the men in our company. Food was excellent the lady that attended us was lovely . Would probably stay here next visit . The evenings... More

Staff were very friendly. Room was on the small side but adequate. Bathroom was clean but had no shelves anywhere to put toiletries on. We found the room extremely noisy as the bar stayed open very late and unfortunately we were over the front door and could hear everybody turning out and traffic noise. Breakfast was quite basic/
