We were relatively late booking a Saturday night in Kinsale and this was the only place with a vacancy. Next time we go to Kinsale, this will be the first place we call. Everything was perfect. Marian and Andy couldn't do enough for us. It's slightly out of the town but Marian will show you a nice walkway into the... More

Marian and Andy couldn't have been more welcoming. The bedroom was large and the bed was very comfortable . Breakfast in the morning was generous and delicious, the smoked salmon went down a treat. Andy went out of his way to suggest the picturesque walk to Charles Fort and places to eat. We highly recommend this B&B. Moira &Ron, Victoria,... More

Our family was one of the first to stay at Kilcaw since Andy and Marian took ownership and we absolutely loved it. The property is nicely situated near Kinsale, the accommodations were just right for the 5 of us, and Tadgh (their son) made some very tasty breakfasts. Andy made a nice fire our first nite there and we felt... More

As you mentioned Mike, you were one of the very first visitors since we took over the house in May. We were so pleased that you were able to become what seemed like part of our extended family while you were here. It's great to see guests relax and feel comfortable as they would in their own home. Hopefully we... More

The property is under new ownership and the owners were very thoughtful and helpful throughout our brief stay. They were able to make multiple recommendations and give directions, to make sure our short time in Kinsale was well spent.The location is just up the hill from Kinsale and so it's very convenient for going on the gorgeous walks Kinsale can...

This was our third visit to Kilcaw House. We stayed there on our honeymoon and our 10th wedding anniversary. When we tried to book our visit for our 20th, we found that Kilcaw House had new owners. Happily, Kilcaw House remains in very good hands. Andrew and Marian, the new owners, couldn't have been more hospitable. They helped us plan... More

This is probably the most enjoyable b&B we stayed in during our travel through Ireland. Altohough it is located a bot from the town - it offers a very nice "silly walk"' by the sea to the city center or the owners offer you transport. The owners are very committed to give you the best stay - from a clean... More

I stayed here on Friday night in a double room. I was greeted with a smiling face of the owner Marian who showed us to our room. The house is extremely clean and it was a very spacious room. The next morning we had a breakfast cooked for us and we were offered a choice of various things. Would highly... More

IT is the intention of the owners to Make Kilcaw House a first class B&B investing in the facilities and in hospitality. We are confidend they will succeed. Nicely located on a Hill top a fox curiously took notice of us in the breakfast room. A very good breakfast for that matter.

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
