We had a fabulous time in kinsale, this was a beautiful stay, rooms were so full of character with a great view of the town and harbour. We were made feel so welcome by the hosts and staff, the breakfast was a real treat, we really enjoyed the veg pancakes with goats cheese. You won't find a better place to... More

What a cute, romantic place. Right downtown. 2 minute walk to everything. Really friendly staff - some of the most if not THE most in all of our 1300 KM trip. The owner and her daughter were wonderful and witty. The breakfast cannot be beaten anywhere in Kinsale. Huge assortment of "pre-breakfast" buffet home made goodies - jams, jellies, scones,... More

We booked the two bedroom suite (more like an apartment) for our family of four, and it exceeded expectations. Clean, quiet, roomy and all around just nice. It was also a great convenience to have two bathrooms. The breakfasts were phenomenal and the service pleasant. We would definitely come back and highly recommend it to others.

Our group of 4 people stayed in this B&B for 2 nights in June and what a wonderful experience. Helpful friendly staff, clean rooms, a great location and superb breakfast. Our rooms were really quiet and very spacious and clean. If we are ever back in the area we will definitely stay again. Ray, Sandy, Roxie and Stacey

Our stay at the Old Presbytry was wonderful. It must take a lot of work by the hosts to make everything seem so easy! A real B&B feel. The hosts are longtime pros at this and it showed. Thank you so much for your hospitality! /the Doyles

My cousin and I, with our wives, spent a wonderful two weeks touring Ireland. We spent the the first two nights and last two nights in hotels in the two major cities but stayed in Bed & Breakfasts in between. Three of those nights were in the wonderful village of Kinsale at the delightful Old Presbytery. The rooms were lovely... More

I've stayed here several times over the past 17 years, and goodness me, it just gets better with every visit! The guest house is located in a quiet street near Desmond Castle and has the added advantage of private parking, which is a bonus in this town, popular with tourists. Accommodation is spread over several floors and furnishings are of... More

A late review, but credit where its due (now that my Tripadvisor login is working again!). We had a wonderful 2 night stay here, in a gorgeous clean, quiet cosy double room high in the house with beautiful sea views. A comfy bed came with throws and pillows, a super bathroom with walk in shower and wall mounted flat screen... More

This was a great B&B in Kinsale. We had off street parking and free breakfast. The breakfast was great as well as the tea and scones they served around midday. We had a large suite with a balcony looking out over the harbor. It was very cute and cozy. The location was great too! Cons - dragging your bags up... More

This is a great boutique type hotel. Convenient to town with restaurants and shopping. Our room was a nice size with a large bathroom. Car park is tight but we had no trouble. The breakfast was the best we had in our entire Ireland trip. Well worth staying if just to eat. Wi Fi was very good as well. We... More
