Spent 30 days travelling all around Ireland and stayed in 15 different B&Bs and guesthouses. Many were very good but the Old Presbytery was the best! Everything you would expect from great accommodation: friendly, helpful hosts; central location; attractive, clean, comfortable room; added touches like chocolates, water in a glass bottle. But more as well: absolute gourmet breakfasts plus afternoon... More

It may be that because we had a superior king room, our experience was exceptional. We loved it! The bathroom was a very decent size and great shower! We slept like babies. Parking is a premium, and after a very chaotic entry into Kinsale, we allowed Philip to park it and just walked around during our time there. Our only... More

We were lucky to find accommodation at this very comfortable and friendly B&B. Travelling through Ireland with my husband and sister in law we had not booked and found ourselves in Kinsale in the middle of a sailing regatta. The tourist info suggested the Old Presbyterian and because they had had a cancellation they were able to accommodate us with... More

The Old Pres was by far the most charming place we stayed on trip. Noreen & Philip had such nice furnishings & details in our room, felt like a cozy 5-star hotel. Our 2nd fl room even had little balcony with great view, and private parking was so nice. Breakfast was amazing, shrimp&lobster included in special menu with gorgeous table... More

The Old Presbytery is a beautiful B&B located right in the heart of Kinsale. The rooms are decorated perfectly and the breakfast was the best we ever had. Owner Noreen and her husband do a fantastic job of making every thing perfect. The bed was the most comfortable bed we have ever had the pleasure of sleeping on at a... More

Room was clean and comfortable, location is convenient to the charming town. Breakfast was outstanding with a buffet & menu (with excellent choices). Poached eggs on muffin with crab meat & spinach were great, with mucho crab meat. Owners are very nice. And free parking in private lot was much appreciated. Fine place.

We found the Old Pres a wonderful place to stay in Kinsale. Breakfasts were great, as was the location in walking distance of Kinsale harbor. Noreen and Phillip helped find the right restaurant for our taste and to locate shops for our needs.

Out of the 8 B&B's we stayed in during our trip around Ireland this was our overall favorite. It is located right in the middle of the quaint and delightful town of Kinsale which made walking to any point in town so easy, even out to the Fort. There was a warm welcome upon arrival and good tips about restaurants... More

The Old Pres was a great stop on our trip around Ireland. It had a great location in Kinsale and the most helpful, friendly hosts we could have asked for. Noreen and Phillip offered up wonderful suggestions for food and activities. We enjoyed several of their signature dishes for breakfast and none of them disappointed. And the spread they put...
