This is a great location in the heart of Kinsale. Walking distance from the best Restaurants and harbor. We did stay in a VERY small room at first as all rooms were occupied. HOWEVER, as we are walking around we checked out other outstanding B&B's in the area that were the same quality but cost much less. and actually the... More

We loved it here. We stayed for three nights. The rooms are furnished with beautiful antiques, the owners are the nicest people, and the breakfasts are AMAZING!! There was lots of parking and it was very quiet and comfortable. We wouldn't think of staying anywhere else when we go back to Kinsale.

we were 4 friends and shared the beautiful suite at 3rd floor which is on 2 levels and has 2 bedrooms, one kitchen, 2 bathrooms and a living room. Price is higher than standard b&b in Ireland, as we spent 180 € all together, but it is worth. Perfect position, in town, with private parking, very useful as it is... More

We only had one night in the Old Presbytery but we wish we had more. We were greeted by a sweet little cat outside the door and then warmly welcomed by Noreen who brought us tea right away. The atmosphere is lovely, very relaxing and a little quirky. The location is ideal. Our room was gorgeous, cozy and very clean.... More

Old Presbytery is an absolute gem. We shared the family suite with our 18 and 20 year old kids and it was lovely, quirky, immaculate and very comfortable. Breakfasts were terrific and Noreen is extremely welcoming and helpful. Kinsale was the highlight of our trip and Old Presbytery was a perfect location. We highly recommend it.

The Old Presbytery was fabulous! Right downtown so we were able to sightsee, walk to dinner & even take the haunted ghost tour walk. Our room was beautiful. Large king bed, fireplace, bathroom with spa tub and even a outside patio. The kids shared a 2 story room with a spiral staircase. There was even private parking. We had great... More

Noreen and Phillip are fantastic hosts and this superior B&B is well worth a few extra euros per night. The room we stayed in was spacious and very well appointed. Off street parking is a bonus too. The breakfasts are restaurant quality, eg beautifully fresh, perfectly cooked fish fillets (just let Phillip know your preference the night before and he... More

In a recent tour of Ireland my wife and I were lucky enough to stumble across the Old Presbytery. This was a recommendation of another B&B that had top marks through Tripadvisor but happened to be full the night we required. Our room was ground floor, which saved the trek up the stairs with luggage and had a lovely little... More
