We were in Kinsale for just one night ("more's the pity") in October and we stayed at the pretty Old Presbytery. The place is very sweet and well-maintained and cared for. Philip and Noreen, our hosts, are very friendly and accommodating. The Old Presbytery is a very cozy little place with tea brewing in the dining room, free DVDs in... More

Stayed here for one night in September while travelling around Cork. Noreen was so welcoming and pleasant and offered us tea/coffee etc on arrival. What a lovely place to stay with all comforts available in a house with such character. Breakfast was just gorgeous and such an array to choose from! Philip and Noreen are the perfect hosts. Unfortunately we... More

This B&B was recommended by a friend that had stayed there previously. Our group of nine stayed here one night and Noreen (& the B&B) was wonderful. Upon arrive (late afternoon) she went out of her way to get us hot drinks and snacks, including some delicious deserts. Unfortunately a couple folks in our group became ill and Noreen allowed...

We were thrilled with our stay at the Old Presbytery. Philip and Noreen were the perfect hosts. Our room was lovely and we enjoyed the sun room and large balcony overlooking the city. I especially loved the jacuzzi tub after the cool days of sightseeing. It is a delightful, short walk to the harbor and all the great restaurants in... More

Have been touring Wicklow and cork counties for a while and have stayed at a good number of b&b but must say that this was the best! Lovely place with lots of character, very cosy, excellent location, and spacious rooms! Hosts were super nice and accommodating. Selection of breakfast was to die for including most of the stuff being organic.

The Old Presbytery will literally make your stay in Kinsale a delight no matter what else you choose to do in that lovely town. It has a quiet elegance and warmth that is so rare these days.

This was our second visit to Kinsale, our favorite city in Ireland, but our first stay at the Old Presbytery. We will absolutely be back and book a longer stay!

One of the best B&B's we stayed at in all of Ireland. The Old Presbytery B&B hosted by Phillip and Noreen, was a great place to stay, terrific food, and an outstanding location. Very good accommodations, Phillip and Noreen mad their home fell like it was ours. A must stay while in Ireland.

Unfortunately we only stayed for 2 nights at The Old Presbytery. We loved this charming B&B in a great location with terrific breakfasts and afternoon snacks. Driving through town was a little tricky, but arriving at the private secure car park off the street made it worthwhile. Philip & Noreen were terrific hosts. We loved the wonderfully decorated rooms and... More
