We ended up here after arriving in Kinsale around 5.30 pm without having booked anywhere; we tried somewhere else more central first but they were booked up and suggested Blindgate House. It's a little off the beaten track up the steep hill from the centre (which was interesting on two fully loaded big touring motorcycles with little clue where we... More

Arrived into a very crowded Kinsale with no accommodation booked for a one night stay. After a bit of traipsing around we were directed to Blindgate by another helpful b&b owner. Maeve drove down and met us and we followed her back up the hill to Blindgate. Lovely home. Good parking. Rooms nice and clean, beds comfy. Best breakie in... More

Also free wifi and ice :) Highlight has to be the breakfast.. Varied hot menu and an abundance of fresh fruit etc.. Definitely the highest quality B&B I have been... More

Very comfortable with excellent breakfast provided. Hostess Maeve is great, and even helped us to book some activities while we were in Kinsale. The walk to the town is short and easily accomplished. There is spacious parking available (important since you won't want to drive in Kinsale). No hesitation in recommending this B&B: it's clean, secure, comfortable, quiet, and the... More

In a busy town an oasis of calm with a very spacious car park. Great room. Nothing a problem and all needs catered for. Would come again without hesitation. Breakfast to look forward to in the morning. We paid extra and had room service.

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
