We did a month-long trip around the UK and Ireland, and we stayed in 16 different hotels. Out of all those hotels, the Old Presbytery was my overall favorite. I loved this place. The room was huge with a large sitting area, and several windows facing out to the quaint street. The beds were comfortable, and the bathroom was large... More

Something so special about The Old Presbytery. There are very few places in Ireland where you find that famous Irish hospitality, that we as a nation are so well known for and Noreen and Phillip certainly have that lovely Irish charm about them. Every last detail has warmth and so much thought in it. I loved the afternoon tea that... More

We stayed three nights at The Old Presbytery B & B. It was very charming and romantic with the most comfy bed and a gorgeous shower. Noreen and Phillip are wonderful people. We had to call Noreen when we got lost on our way to Old Head and she knew exactly where we were. The breakfasts were the best part... More

Stayed here for one night during our stop in Kinsale. This is right in the heart of the city, barely a 5 minute walk to get anywhere, it is a perfect location! Rooms were very clean and comfortable, the staff couldn't be nicer! Breakfast was absolutely delicious, and they even offered afternoon tea, coffee, and wine with cheese and crackers... More

Kinsale is small and easy to walk everywhere (and we are not much walkers). The Old P. is on the hill (gentle, short climb) above the main areas. Quiet, with its own car park. Our room (1a) was fantastic. VERY large, with a huge modern bathroom. The hotel is gorgeous -- the nicest place we stayed in two weeks. And... More

We stayed here for two nights and loved it. The room we were in had lots of character as it was in a 1750 building but had a fairly modern bath and sunroom that had been recently added. While we loved the room, do be aware there are a couple of steps down to the bathroom and sunroom. Our room... More

We stayed at the Old Presbytery for one night on our trip around Ireland. It was great! We loved that they offered free off-street parking (made it so much easier for us since we were getting in late after picking up friends from the airport). The rooms were lovely and the bathrooms, even better! We were also really impressed with... More

The Old Presbytery in Kinsale, Ireland is truly wonderful. Our room was stellar, the breakfast was excellent and the proprietor helped us book out next night's stay. The B&B is close to restaurants and shopping and Kinsale is an old Irish town with lots of history.

We stayed here for two nights and had a great time. The rooms were a nice size and were very clean. We had a small balcony terrace off our room, which was a nice space and view to wake up to each morning. We had a late arrival into County Cork and the owners' daughter was up and waiting to...

We had a nice stay at the Old Presbytery. The off street parking is a nice touch. The rooms are fine and we had a nice view of the harbor. Breakfast was very delicious. The wifi is very weak - there is a computer for guest use that works much better.
