My husband and i love this place. We had pre-booked based on reviews and it was perfect for two nights in Kinsale. The hostess, Ann, has been in the hotel business for over 20 years and it shows. She has it all down pat from amenities to decor. The feel is modern so if you want all old-Ireland, this is... More

Really nice stay at the Pier House B&B while recently in Kinsale. Very convenient as it's in the heart of the town, tastful decor, clean and fresh rooms and a very personal touch by our host Anne. I'm happy to recommend this place and will definitely return.

My wife and I had the pleasure of staying here recently, and had a wonderful stay. Ann is a fantastic hostess, and put us in the room overlooking the harbour, once she found out we were celebrating our wedding anniversary. The house was modern, clean and very comfortable. The breakfasts were fantastic, with wide selection of fruit, cereals, and of... More

We arrived in Kinsale without booking anywhere and Pier House was recommended to us. What can I say other than what a superb boutique hotel. Ann our host was just a warm and welcoming as a person could be and made us very comfortable. The rooms etc are impeccably clean and very comfortable. I can recommend this place without hesitation.... More

We stayed here recently and had a wonderful experience. Ann is a fantastic hostess and even handled taking care of our laundry. The location is right in town and easily accessible for walking everywhere. Would highly recommend the place!!

The Pier House is a lovely modern B&B (more of a feel of a nice hotel) in the center of Kinsale, a short stroll from the water and the fortress. Only downside is our room was a bit small and did not have a view of the water - it looked onto a fence. However, we only stayed for one... More

Fantastic location overlooking Kinsale harbour. The room was large, clean and beautifully decorated with a large en suite. Breakfast was served in the front room with lovely views over the harbour. I can't give this 5 stars as the room was a little noisy both Saturday and Sunday night - other than that - a lovely place to stay and... More

We had stopped for a bit of a look around, and were astounded by this beautiful gem tucked in the center of Kinsale! The proprietress Ann was friendly, informative and simply a joy. The room was heavenly, with the best shower to be had in all of Ireland!! Well worth the price and a repeat visit!
