We spent several days at this lovely B&B. The home is beautifully decorated in modern decor, and we were greeted with the scent of lilies in the entryway - lovely! There is plenty of open space to sit and enjoy tea (or play cards as our party likes to do). Our room was quite spacious, also tastefully decorated, and we... More

We really loved the stunning views from Rivermount House. There was plenty of parking, totally full by evening, and a little distance from the township of Kinsale, about 15mins along winding roads. There was a local pub,The Speckled Door, of good repute about 2 kilometres or so up the road. Our room was upstairs, as I think the majority of... More

Recently stayed here for one night. Claire & Martin have tastefully decorated their home and garden to the highest standard. Their home and hospitality is amazing, the facilities on offer are top notch, I cannot fault this B&B at all. Beautiful views,comfy beds, clean crisp linen, spotlessly clean room and en-suite what more could you want. The breakfast was also... More

This B&B has wonderful views of the green hills and river as you are out in the middle of farming areas which is the only downside, you have to drive into Kinsale. Kinsale has good parking so this was not an issue for us. The common areas in this B&B are the best we had in our 21 day 2,600... More

We stayed for 2 nights in September - having been booked by our travel agent. After reading previous Trip Advisor reviews we were really looking forward to our stay. The accommodation is more like an Inn than a B&B, with a large number of guest rooms. Our room was small but clean as was the bathroom, however it lacked any... More

Stayed for long weekend, more like a 5 star hotel. Clare and all the staff were amazing. Rooms beautiful, and the view! Breakfast was scrumptious. Not far from the town , cheap taxi if needed. Tea , coffee and homemade goodies available in lounge .

We stayed here the first week of September and couldn't have been happier. The owner was great. She gave us all of the information we needed to explore Kinsale. The rooms were gorgeous, clean and the wifi worked great. The view was amazing and the breakfast was outstanding. I can't say enough nice things about our stay.

I'll begin with the owner - absolutely delightful, hilarious wit, and full of great recommendations for dining, shopping, and pub visitations. The property is beautiful - great views and a short taxi ride to the one of a kind village, Kinsale. The breakfast was simply wonderful. Great variety and plentiful. I will be back!

I'm still missing those breakfasts overlooking the amazing County Cork countryside. Loved the Hotel scaled space, both rooms & public areas. For a large family party of Ten who like to plan every aspect of our stay Claire was fantastic with the pre arrival questions & accommodations we needed. Finding this place next to amazing Kinsale was a find for... More

Wish I could have taken this B&B with me for the entire trip. Accommodations were excellent, we needed three beds and the room was large enough so that we did not have to trip over each other. The bathroom was modern and large with soft towels. The hostess was delightful and the food was 5 star....She interacted with the guests... More
