Our room was large by normal B&B standards. It was very clean as was the ensuite. Christine was a lovely hostess and made us feel welcome. The breakfast was delicious and beautifully cooked and presented. This B&B is just on the outskirt of Kinsale making it very quiet and pleasant in it's semi rural location. We would recommend Kilcaw House... More

Very tidy..well kept grounds. Quiet and away from the busy & congested city center. We were very pleased with the breakfast, service and accommodations. Adequate sized room, nice place to stay for the night. There were 4 in our party and we occupied two rooms. No issues with either room. Plenty of parking and short hop to the city center.... More

Great location just on the edge of town, Christina was a lovely host & even drove us to town on our evening out. The room was comfy & lots of room, the property was beautiful & very scenic. Great Irish breakfast, you won't go hungry after staying here, we would return in a flash !!

What a place. one kilometre outside the town so nice and quiet but yet close to everything. Great breakfast. spotless rooms and a wonderful hostess. Chris I am only we couldn't stay longer. If you want to stay in a real irish home this is the place. My third time and there will be many more. See you again Kinsale

We enjoyed this B and B that was close to kinsale. I tried to get a room closer to the water but was not able and this place was very warm and inviting. We enjoyed a great breakfast and the hostess was able to give us some good tips on where to go on our travels. We ate at the... More

Wonderful spot with great clean rooms. Not much space to hang outside your room. The place is on a beautiful piece of land right next to Charles Fort. A bit too far to walk into Kinsale for us but definitely possible if you needed to. Lovely hosts who are most helpful on giving you recommendations for the day.

Set on well-maintained grounds, Kilcaw House B&B is clean and well appointed. The hostess, Chris, couldn't be more accomodating. While our room was not huge, we had no real space issues. Breakfast is personally prepared. Plenty of parking, very easy to find - even at night, and close to Kinsale town center without the traffic. Would certainly stay again.

The place is nice, easy to find, rooms clean, fairly roomy, safe place to crash for the night. Breakfast was nice, the lady of the house was very nice, gave us tips on travels. I would visit this location again.

The directions for the B&B are perfect, follow them and you will find it! Upon arrival we automatically felt at home. The welcoming was warm and check-in quick. We were given great recommendations and made us feel really comfortable. The rooms were nice and big, the beds were comfortable. We had to leave very early in the morning (3am) and... More
