Mary is a 'hoot' - our double-occupancy room was clean and roomy. Our friend had a single-occupancy room that was very small. Good breakfast and Mary was very attentive during the meal - loved the quaint feel of the breakfast setting. Great location with easy access to downtown.

We arrived about 3pm and there was no answer at the door. We went back two hours later and there was a note telling us to go down the hill to the pub to get our key. The rooms at Sea Gull House are very small. No place to put your luggage. The heater worked well for the room but... More

Mary O'Neil's bacon is undoubtedly the best in all of Ireland. She knows how to welcome visitors warmly. Also highly recommend the ghost tour. Kinsale was our favorite towns in all of Ireland. -Mike and Allie, Illinois USA

Thoroughly enjoyed our stay in Mary's B&B, The Sea Gull House. It is an old fashioned place, but cozy and clean. Mary is a treat, and took care of us. Enjoyed sitting with her by the fireplace at her family's Tap Tavern down the hill. A great experience.

Loved our stay. Would have made it a multiday option in Kinsale to see all of the town and sites. Mary was wonderful and breakfast was very good. Their pub was down the hill and was the locals hangout and music was brought in among locals as well. Loved the quaint bar and atmosphere. Kinsale was beautiful.

The Sea Gull, run by Mary O'Neill, is an interesting home perched on the hill next to Desmond Castle. The home is old-fashioned, clean, quite pretty inside, and breakfast is excellent. Mary runs the Tap Tavern, a friendly neighbourhood pub, just down the hill from the B& B and you may go by the pub to pick up the key.... More

When we arrived a note appeared on the door saying that Mary was at the pub she owns down the street, Tap Tavern. We easily found her, she greeted us with a smile and the keys. The B&B has a distinctive smell when you walk in the door but as usual your nose gets used to it. The décor is... More

We visited with hostess, Mary for three nights and had a great time. She was most accommodating and helpful. Our room was comfortable and clean and the breakfasts were good. Easy walking to everything in Kinsale. Parking was not easy-we just had to find a place as close as possible.
