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

Great location in the center of the town, the staff were all very friendly and helpful. The live music in the bar at night was great. Only down side was no lift and no air con, not that you need it most times in Ireland but it was quite noisy if you left the window open for fresh air at... More

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.

I have stayed in numerous hotels throughout the world and Ireland and I must say I was quite impressed with The White House. It was quaint without being pokey and modern without being pretentious. The staff were very nice and helpful and the room was big, clean, tastefully decorated with a large comfy bed. I wasn't woken by other guests,... More

Located right in the center of town, the owner Michael and his wife couldn't have treated us any better if we had been family. Nice rooms, great food, and the Guinness was great. Even had the luck of the Irish with us betting on a few horses, thanks Michael. Can't wait until my next visit (not sure if I want... More

We were a group of 15 "gentlemen" in Kinsale for the weekend and this place really hit the spot. We had great service from Olivia in arranging the booking, the location was the best we could possibly have hoped for (right at the heart of everything), the rooms were compact but more than adequate for our party and the food...

Stayed here last week for one night, central location, gorgeous room with above mentioned ample bed! Breakfast was delicious, with great choice and friendly staff. Went for a run the following morning down by the harbour, it was beautiful.

This is a lovely little boutique hotel, situated right in the heart of Kinsale. Nice, clean rooms- warm (always important). Great breakfast. However this hotels greatest asset is its staff who were all pleasant, helpful and very professional.

We were in Kinsale for one night only and booked at the White House. It is a lovely place, convenient, staff was very helpful and friendly, but I would not stay there for a full holiday. Rooms are quite small, well the bed was huge, the bathroom was very small too, it was comfortable enough though but again for a... More

Kinsale is a small town and The White House is right in the center of it all. Great location and really with not many choices - it's the way to go. Perfect? No. But worked out great for our one night stay in the town. Pros: clean, location, bar/restaurant attached are great Cons: Very cold room, room pretty small, basic,... More
