Had a lovely stay - the hotel is very central, the staff were so friendly and welcoming and could not do enough for you. I stayed in room 6 and it had its own balcony with a nice seating area outside. I can't fault it as a place to stay in Kinsale and would def stay there again.

We had a fantastic two-night stay at The Old Presbytery, a wonderful inn near the center of Kinsale and very walkable to everything. Philip and Noreen were fantastic hosts, our bedroom was spacious, and the bathroom fantastic. Breakfasts were amazing; the cold breakfast alone was wonderful, but add to that the incredible hot breakfast menu, and our biggest dilemma was... More

The hosts, Noreen and Philip, have perfected the art of B&Bing! Cozy, quiet generous sized rooms with everything you would need to make your stay comfortable. Philip makes full hot breakfasts as well as homemade scones and Irish Soda Bread. The cold buffet had all the wholesome foods including fresh fruits, muesli, yogurts and lovely homemade preserves ( ginger-Apple my... More

My husband and I recently returned to The Old Presbytery after a fabulous experience last year.

We tend to stay in modern hotels with modern amenities but found this gem as a late booking. What a lovely, homely guesthouse. From arriving in the car park we were made to feel welcome from proprietor Philip and inside his wife Noreen and daughter. This is a family run business & you can see that the guests are valued...

Delicious breakfast! Very cute, spacious, and clean room. Bathroom was also very nice and water for the shower was hot. Short walking distance to shops/bars/water. I stayed in the 2 bedroom suite which had a nice dining room and small kitchen. The owner was very nice and accommodating as well. No complaints here.
