Stayed here recently, the lady of the house is very helpful, a pleasure to deal with. Rooms are spacious and clean and the house is conveniently located. Wifi is an issue in some rooms but overall a very pleasant stay.

Stayed one night during a 2 week driving tour after reading about it in Rick Steve's Ireland book. Facilities were clean and modern. Was a bit concerned about the location from prior reviews, but it was a very easy walk to the town and restaurants. Parking is ample. The owner was helpful in providing recommendations and travel information. Breakfast was... More

My husband and I were recently in Kinsale. We chose Blindgate House due to its location near to people we were visiting. Our stay of 4 nights was terrific. The room was extremely comfortable, bathroom was large and spotless and breakfasts were excellent. It was very quiet at night, and we slept very well (not usual for us!). We spent... More

It's been a few months since I travelled around Ireland with my mother, and yesterday someone asked me where was the best place I stayed... the answer was Blindgate House because everything was perfect. Both my mother and I can highly recommend it. We arrived in Kinsale without a booking for accommodation and found the owner extremely friendly and she... More

We loved Kinsale. Our room was very large - the owner said that it was an upgrade because she had given our room to someone else. The walk into town was downhill - going back was a little more challenging but OK. Very nice breakfast. The owner must not have been having a good day when we were there -... More

Great stay while in Kinsale. The rooms were nice and clean and rather large. The bathroom was clean and a good size (which is sometimes hard to find while in Ireland). Great breakfast to go along with it. The owner was very pleasant to talk with and very helpful with giving out directions and recommendations for food and tours.

We stayed for three nights in mid-June. The room and hospitality were excellent...comfortable, quiet, excellent breakfast. Maeve is spectacular...it was quite warm so she found a fan for our room. We asked for ice the first night, and found some every night when we arrived back. And she provided excellent advice on local attractions. If we return to Kinsale, and... More

This B & B is well worth finding and like a previous reviewer, I was directionally challenged getting there. In desperation I called Maeve and she came straight out to find us! What a wonderful service. The house is spotless and in a quiet area above the town of Kinsale. It is a easy walk to all the wonderful cafes,... More
