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

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
