We stayed two nights here and it was clean and bright with beautiful water views. We booked the adjacent apartment for our son, his wife and our grandchild. It is a nice walk into town and you don't have to struggle with parking. John could not have been more accommodating! He booked Fishy Fishy for us and even prepared breakfast... More

Absolutely top notch. Wonderful room, comfy bed and a breakfast that was excellent. John, the host made us feel so welcome and gave us pointers on the town and our trip plans. We loved our stay here and wish we had planned for another night. We walked into town and back at night and found the walk a nice bit... More

Very good accommodations and excellent breakfast. Most of all, John could not be more personable and accommodating. Easy walk to downtown Kinsale (and/or easy drive to other locations nearby). Our family just enjoyed a great stay in Kinsale!

This is seriously the best place I've ever stayed in, in my entire life, and by far! The house, to begin with, is absolutely lovely...the room was immaculate and so cute, with lots of little attentions (bottle of water, nice little cookies) that are a proof of John's immense kindness. The dining-room and living-room are also wonderful, with a view... More

My family and I had a lovely night at Rocklands House. John was a great host and the location is perfectly set just out of town. Views are lovely and breakfast was delicious. My parents stayed in the self contained cottage which was set away from the house and had it's own outdoor space and kitchette. Wonderful!

Our room was large and had amazing views over the harbour. It was nice to have so much space for a 3 night stay. Tea and coffee facilities excellent and replenished daily - it was a nice touch to have a fridge that guests could use as well. John was a lovely host - very enthusiastic and genuine. He seemed...

We booked a double/single room and just expected to pass through. Upon arrival, John went into town and booked us reservations (at Max's since Fishy Fishy was booked), came back and picked us up to drop us back in town. Was walkable but it was getting late. The rooms and house were very clean and the breakfast was delicious. The... More

We booked one double and two single occupancy rooms here and we all found the rooms very clean and luxuriously appointed as was the rest of the property. The rooms were well sized and the beds very comfortable and ours had a delightful view over the garden looking down to the river and beyond. John was very welcoming and friendly.... More

What did we prefer : - The astonishing view - The fabulous breakfast with fresh fruit salad, home-made scones and delicious pancakes - The warm hospitality of John - The peaceful environment - The cleanliness of the place Difficult to say but everything was there and we would have liked to stay longer for sure.

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
