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/

We stumbled across this place and were lucky to find there was a room available. The gentleman was really kind and it was no fuss to have our small children come stay. We felt it was fairly good value with breakfast included. The next morning, I was greeted by the most sweetest Irish waitress who was enamored by my kids.... More

Kinsale was highly recommended by a bartender in another town and found The White House last minute on booking.com. A GREAT FIND ! Price was great, people were great, breakfast was great and location was great. The room was small but clean, quiet and comfortable - perfect for 1 night. Super short walk to all kinds of great food, drink... More

Our stay at the White House was great! We rented two rooms. The rooms were clean and the beds were comfortable. One room looked out over the streets and harbor. The other looked out the back. Both were great. We ate an enjoyable dinner and had breakfast (included) the next morning. If we return to Kinsale, we will stay there... More

Stayed in this hotel a couple of years ago. It was lovely then and lovely now. The service is great. The rooms are spotless. The woman Tracy who does the rooms was still there. She is so pleasant and hardworking. An asset. The location is great right in the middle of town. Will definitely be back for my 5th anniversary.
