Up on the hill with some lovely views from the rooms. John was most helpful and made us feel welcome. Good breakfast made to order. The rooms were clean with fresh towels daily. The walk to Kinsale wasn't too far, although we could have done without it at night so sometimes we took the car. Thanks for a lovely stay... More

John was a wonderful host, providing us with helpful suggestions for exploring (and eating) in town and interesting insights on local attractions. Our room was comfortable, clean and quiet, with amazing views over the river to enjoy the complimentary tea and coffee facilities (and bottled water... More

An amazing house in a stunning location - our room looked out onto the river. The room was lovely and peaceful, and the bed was super comfortable. And the breakfast was delicious! Kinsale is a beautiful town and this was a perfect place to stay.

This B&B is honestly one of the best places I have ever stayed at! Very comfortable, spectacular views- lovely friendly owner and a magnificent breakfast! It is walkable to town and in a very peaceful part of Kinsale. I would highly recommend it.

My mother and I stayed for one night and wished we could have stayed longer. John was a very welcoming and helpful host; he secured a reservation for us at a wonderful restaurant, Fishy Fishy. Breakfast was delicious, and the views are indescribably beautiful. Would recommend, and hope to stay again soon,

This has the most amazing views and a great welcome from john. Our rooms were airy and comfortable not the most glamorous but there were compensations in the great sitting room we were able to use. Breakfast was served in the room with the view and fresh scones, bread and amazing pancakes were on the menu, my father had seconds!... More

We stayed for one night last week and would have stayed more but unfortunately the place was fully booked so we were lucky to have just the one night,. Excellent rooms and good views of Kinsale harbour high up on compass hill, which also has a really good circular walk of about 40 minutes. also ideal for going into town... More

We stayed for one night only mores the pity. Was greeted by the friendly golden Labrador (nice touch!) and then shown to our lovely room with balcony looking out over the beautiful garden and beyond Kinsale Harbour. What a gorgeous place in Ireland. Delicious buffet breakfast on top of full Irish breakfast. Gentle Gracious Irish service. Highly recommended.

We stayed here for just one night (would have liked longer). A lovely view from the fabulous dining room - didn't want to leave! Bedroom linen and bed was really comfortable - our room was a little small though .. not a king size - understandable perhaps as we were only there for one night.. however Wi-Fi access was really...
