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...

The host, John, was very gracious and tentative, the room had everything from great WiFi (strong enough to watch Netflix on iPad), hair dryer, king bed with all white clean bedding, tea/coffee in room, beautiful views from the room of the Harbour and lovely hot made to order breakfast. Much better than a hotel stay-memorable, only draw back is small... More

We spent a wonderful night in Kinsale and this b&b certainly contributed to the overall experience. It is the lovely place, the magnificent room and John's warm hospitality that make it all so excellent. In short, it is highly recommended!

My boyfriend and I stayed here in June for two nights and it was one of the best B&Bs we stayed in during our trip in Ireland. The room itself was gorgeous, with a huge window that looked upon the most amazing view of the water and hills. The room was very comfortable, clean and modern. John was a great... More

John makes your stay completely comfortable and welcoming. He went the extra mile to explain local history, make restaurant recommendations and even jump in to help us when an unusual problem popped up. Our room was tight but cozy and had a nice view down to the harbor. Our breakfast was cooked to order in the morning and we even... More

My daughter and I found Rocklands House by chance after leaving the narrow streets of Kinsale and deciding we needed to stay in a calm environment. John provided us a delightful room with a small balcony and an incredible view of the river. Just the environment in which to relax after the stress of driving a big car in the... More

We travelled Ireland on public transport (bus and train) from B & B to B & B this September. Our experience was exceptionally positive and all the B & B hosts were pleasant and helpful beyond expectations, especially John at Rocklands house. The accommodations, view and food here are A+ and John is a gracious and knowledgeable host, offering individualized... More

My brother & our wives were traveling through ireland & finding B&B's as we went. We had good luck finding places & this was one of the best. Our room was clean and comfortable. The food was delicious & the B&B had a great view. The owner was very friendly & helpful in helping us contact our ireland cousin. It... More

Rocklands House can be a little exciting to find, as it is on a hill high above Kinsale, with an expansive view over the village, river and bridge below. The owner was extremely pleasant and helpful, even loaning us his phone and laptop to ensure we reached our next night's destination without trouble. The house is clean and quiet, and... More
