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

When we should up at the Pier House in Kinsale after driving from Dublin, Ann, the proprietor, said she wasn't expecting us until the next day. We waited in the entry for about 10 minutes until she came out and said she had re-worked another reservation and escorted us to the second floor to a beautiful en-suite bedroom at the... More

Loved everything, especially our Room #1 and Toby, the shy Westie. The garden through which you enter the house is tropical with fountains and sitting areas - a natural context suitable for this beautiful B and B. Our first impression was "wow, this is great" and it only got better. We really liked venturing out the back gate to the... More

We checked this B & B before booking and it didn't disappoint. Location is excellent opposite the harbour and free parking in a nearby carpark, We had a warm welcome from Ann and Toby and were shown to our lovely room which was beautifully decorated and spotless and a bottle of Prosecco cooling for us. The house itself is quirky... More

Ann greeted us AND carried our luggage! Our room (suggested by Karen Brown Guides) was in front with a balcony overlooking the garden and the harbor. It is the largest room--sofa, chairs, sunshine... The bathroom is new and functional. Wifi was dicey in the room but good on the stairs and in the "wifi room." Breakfast was a delight with... More

We arrived in Kinsale with a reservation at a different facility which turned out to be unacceptable. With the help of someone at a local hotel, we found that Ann had just had a cancellation. We were able to stay for the two nights we had scheduled in Kinsale and were delighted with the room and amenities. Breakfast was wonderful... More
