Perfect location in the centre of the town, lovely clean bright rooms with high ceilings and huge bed. Staff are so welcoming and friendly, nothing is too much trouble. Breakfast was beautiful, fresh fish and perfect pouched eggs topped off by lashings of tea and soda bread. Thank you

We just loved our stay! The rooms are right in the heart of Kinsale and you can walk to everything. If you're traveling without a car, the bus stop is just around the corner. The service was fantastic and the rooms were clean and quaint. It felt like an authentic Irish experience. It's so convenient having a little bar and... More

I traveled to Ireland for the first time this summer and was not sure of what to expect. We stayed at the white house and i could not have felt more comfortable. Every staff member I dealt with was delightful and accommodating. Rooms were very clean and peaceful. The food was incredible and the portions were larger than expected. The... More

The White House is right in the middle of all the activity in the great little port and foodie mecca of Kinsale. The room had been tastefully updated with modern but integrated furniture, great beds and a really nice bathroom with great water pressure. The staff was very friendly and competetent with an excellent restaurant and beer garden out back... More

We had a wonderful one night at this kinsale inn. The White House is perfectly located in town and besides the spacious room and ever-friendly staff, you will eat very well. The homemade granola was especially delicious for breakfast. We were fortunate to be eating in the pub during the rep Ireland versus Germany euro cup qualifiers. Everyone was lively... More

Great stay here! This is a charming place in a very charming town. Definitely would recommend the experience! Everyone working here were super kind and friendly. Our room was excellent (just as shown in their web page) and, as said in the title of this review, the place has it all! Only thing is that the live music & pub... More

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
