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

Stayed here before but this time it was well below average and I wouldn't be enticed back here. The breakfast is served in the b & b which is in a different b & b (there is two b & b's, this one and the rockview and they are situated near each other) but you have to go to rockview... 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

This place is in the perfect location. The owner is extremely nice, and tends to whatever it is you may need. Everything is in a 5 min walk from the B&B. The rooms were great, very clean and spacious. wifi came in good and the bathroom was clean with plenty of hot water. I parked right behind the B&B in... More

We arrived in Kinsale after driving all day and had no reservations. We decided to stay at the anchorage. We had a HUGE room with a balcony and a nice view. The bathroom was huge too! It seems there was a bit of a moisture issue in the bathroom but we had a great breakfast in the building in front.... More

The first thing that strikes you when you arrive at this guesthouse are the 42 steps up to it, although it was not a surprise to us as we had been made aware of it when booking. While perhaps this may mean The Anchorage is not for everybody, we found that even with two toddlers in tow it was not... More

The McCarthys are so kind! Breakfast was wonderful, and the beds were comfortable. My friends and I enjoyed ourselves and knew that if we needed anything at all, we need only ask! The shower was a little confusing, but just make sure you ask about that when you check in!

We stayed one night at the Anchorage and quite honestly would not recommend it. Our room was tiny with precious little space to navigate around the bed. A kettle was provided but no tea or coffee accompanied it. The walls are very thin and other guests returning to the B&B In the early hours could be clearly heard. Breakfast was... More
