A very good location less than 10 minutes from Kinsale Town Centre. Our host, Christina, was very accommodating/helpful and our room very comfortable. Wished our stay was longer than one night as there's much to see in Kinsale and surrounding area.

We enjoyed a 2 night stay with Christina at her wonderful B&B just a short distance from town. Very nice rooms, great breakfasts, and it was nice not to have to struggle to find overnight parking. The only problem we had was that there was only one unused electrical outlet in our room so it was hard to charge phones,... More

Enjoyed a night at Kilcaw House and awesome Irish hospitality! We arrived soaking wet after sight seeing in the rain. Chris graciously threw our stuff in the dryer for us. Headed to the Spaniard for food, drinks and song which was a short cab drive away. Room was large, bed comfortable and breakfast was awesome as was the travel recommendations.... More

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.
