Our 2 nights at the Pier House could not have been nicer. Pat and Ann were awesome hosts helping with restaurant bookings, questions, and just fun to chat with. Location was great. Room clean and comfortable. Breakfast very lovely. We would definitely stay there again.

We really enjoyed staying at this small hotel right on the Kinsale harbor. Creatively designed and decorated, bright and clean, everything was comfortable in every way. The host/ owner, Ann is super friendly and welcoming. Breakfast was delicious. I took a break from the traditional fry and had the fruit filled crepes--yum! Would definitely return.

Great stay! By way of a booking agent error, we were routed to Pier House B & B, and Ann and Pat could not have been more accommodating, helped us above w/and beyond service. We have a delightful room, nice outside sitting area across the hall, nice gathering room, ice machine, even supplied wine glasses and a cork stand! Loved... More

At the most expensive rate for a room that barely accommodated the bed, this room was the poorest value during what was a superb holiday on the Wild Atlantic Way. The room was generally clean and trendy, but in order to plug the kettle in it had to be moved to sit on the floor which created a potential hazard.... More

My wife and I stayed at this superb place recently. It has been voted to be one of the best guest houses in Ireland, and it genuinely deserves that title. The service, food, and accommodation are all top notch. The views over the water are lovely. It is a 5 min walk to the center of town. One of the... More

Ann was warm and welcoming to us upon check-in and the room was superb. We had a comfortable bed, nice sitting area, patio and we even had a heated bathroom floor! The location of this B&B couldn't be more convenient to downtown Kinsale and parking is available in a lot nearby. Ann also makes a delicious breakfast with a good... More

We are feeling guilty for failing to write a review of this wonderful guest house. Last year, I think it was May, my wife and I along with our dear friend and his wife stayed for one night. All I can do is repeat what I have said in the overall rating everything about the place and our host was... More

Highly recommend this B&B for your stay in Kinsale. The host is warm and inviting, and the breakfasts are wonderful. Location is excellent as well, right in front of the harbor. The rooms are nicely furnished, bathrooms are sizeable, and the bedding is comfortable. I would stay here again.

The location is in the small centre of the town, near the tourist office and all the pubs and stores. The host is very friendly and the breakfast was very good. The rooms are spacious, modern and very clean. We even had a balcony overviewing the harbor. Compared to the other B&Bs it is a little bit pricier, but nevertheless... More

Location of this B&B is awesome and in close proximity to the city center. Ann, the proprietor, was kind and very accommodating. We stayed in a twin room away from the street which was comfortable but a little on the noisy side. Only complaint I can honestly give is the size of the shower. It was extremely tiny and difficult... More
