Blindgate House is attractive, with new, smallish rooms (compared to the other lodging we had on this trip). There is a good-sized parking lot. Breakfast was very nice. Be aware that Kinsale is VERY hilly, and Blindgate was way up the hill from the city center, where the restaurants and pubs are located. You'll get your exercise, since it isn't... More

My husband and I stayed for two nights at Blindgate House during a two week trip to Ireland. The rooms are very nice, clean and quite large. There is ample off-street parking. Breakfast is very good. Maeve, the proprietor was helpful with questions regarding local laundries. The guest house is a little bit of a hike, uphill, from the town... More

I can't add much to the laudatory reviews of this property. Wonderful property, clean, good-size rooms, delicious breakfast, and a lovely, helpful proprietor in Maeve. It's a very short walk to the center of town. I will stay here on my next visit to Kinsale.

We arrived in Kinsale late one evening during a whirlwind, two week honeymoon adventure in Ireland…and did not have a reservation for the night. Fortunately, Blindgate had one room available for us so we were thrilled. Blindgate is very well designed, modern, clean lined and well appointed. It has a simple elegance that could be construed by some as minimalist... More

Stayed there with my two youngest kids. Was made welcome, breakfast was excellent and the kids were made welcome. Its close enough to the centre to walk to and far away enough to be quiet enough at night. There is ample parking and its a great spot from which to explore the local area

Blindgate House is a special experience and Maeve an excellent host. It's got a gorgeous country house feel, very comfortable ensuite bedrooms with a delicious breakfast menu including juices, yoghurt, fresh fruits, cheeses, cold meats, Irish soda bread followed by gorgeous cooked choices... try the french toast with maple syrup and bacon... all beautifully presented. It's in a great location,... More

I recently spent a weekend staying in this lovely B&B. It was my first trip to Ireland and I was very impressed. The standard of the B&B was great, very modern, clean yet charming rooms. I travelled with a friend of mine and we shared a big comfortable room (two big twin beds). The service by the owner and the... More

I've just returned from a weekend here and found everything to be excellent. I was attending a friends wedding and had never been to this area. The house is a five minute stroll from the heart of Kinsale. The room was spacious and impeccably clean, it also had really lovely crisp white bed linen and proper pillows in a comfy... More

Just returned from a weekend in Kinsale with some friends. We stayed at Blindgate House which was absolutely superb. The guesthouse is very tastefully decorated and has a clean, modern feel to it while still feeling "warm and welcoming". The bedrooms were nice and spacious and the beds super comfortable. Location is great too - 5 min walk in to... More
