Stayed one night at the Anchorage. Our room was at the top of the hill so we had to carry our suitcases up 60 steps!! Room smelt damp and lighting was poor. Rooms a little tired looking. We could hear the water system outside most of the night. Breakfast was adequate and service good as were the ladies at the... More

The rooms were clean and comfortable and the ladies managing the property were extremely friendly and nice. The bathroom was spacious and clean. The breakfast was very well presented with a choice of Irish or continental options. This location is perfect for walking to pubs and restauants. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this location;however, the steps up to the B... More

Had a great stay here, Brian is a very welcoming host, rooms are very nice with great space. The breakfast was excellent and the location is perfect 1 minute walk to the town centre. I would strongly recommend the anchorage for a weekend stay.

Spent an overnight at this b&b! Our room located up two flights of stairs. Very quiet & spotlessly clean. Breakfast great choice & lovely homely/family feel to it!! Ideal for young family as not overly expensive.Would choose to stay here again if visiting kinsale.

When I entered the room, it was lovely, nice and spacious except the bathroom that you couldn't swing a cat in, found a fake eyelash on the dresser beside my bed :o :o I found it was hard to read books in, the lighting wasn't the best in the night. The breakfast was only ok, the lady was mixing up... More

The Anchorage is comfy, even if you must work a little to get to it! Up the steps, then down the steps into the house, then up the steps to the rooms. Clean, quiet, comfortable, plenty of hot water, delicious breakfast. Our sweet hostess cut up fruit for our breakfast, not normally on the menu, especially for us! Nice artwork... More

I organised a group trip to Kinsale and must say that Brian McCarthy could not have been more help to me. He was brilliant and very welcoming and friendly. The Anchorage is quite central. The rooms were very spacious and spotless. All my group were raving about the place and the beautiful breakfast capped a top class weekend. Major thanks... More
