If you want to visit Kinsale and stay at wonderful updated accommodations within 10 minute drive to town strongly consider this B&B. Claire and her daughter are wonderful hostesses and are willing to answer all your questions with a smile. The room we stayed in had a wonderful view of the Irish countryside and river. The drive to town was... More

By far our favorite bed and breakfast stay while in Ireland. We had never stayed in a bed and breakfast before our Ireland trip and were a little leery but if you want to see the Irish countryside, b&b's are your only option and it is the norm. I was very selective in pre-booking only 4 and 5 stars for... More

We were a group of three friends traveling together and could not have been happier with our stay! The home is beautiful and well appointed. It was great to have American outlets!!! It is a short drive from town, but we had no trouble finding it. We found Claire, and her daughter, to be friendly and helpful. The common area... More

Really nice bed and breakfast but not within driving distance of Kinsale. The rooms were well appointed and very comfortable. The breakfast was also great. The hosts were informative but not over friendly. The wi fi needs to be improved.

Very nice, modern country B&B but truly needs better wifi. Rooms were clean & had 110 power outlet for us US citizens, nice addition. Breakfast was good, pancake option was different. Everything else was great!

Rivermount is a beautiful house and the scenery around it is absolutely stellar. For that it deserve a 5 star rating! However, If you are traveling Internationally and looking for warm, friendly host who will know your name and take time to learn something about you and welcome you into their home, I would suggest you look elsewhere.

Our room was comfortable, included both American and European electric outlets; several common rooms where you could relax, watch tv, have a quiet space, table to work from; delicious breakfast selections, homemade; and the home itself was beautiful, located on a hill with a view of the harbor with patio seating and gardens.

Great accommodations! Good breakfast, near town, great restaurants, big grocery store. Nice hostess, clean home, good showers. I'd go back. I didn't type the minimum of 200 words so I need to do so I'm typing this sentence.

As other reviewers have said, this is about 10 minutes from town, in the countryside, but well worth the drive. Large house, spacious bedrooms, excellent bathroom, great breakfast, and hosts who were very welcoming.

Our room had an amazing view of the Irish countryside. I was a very romantic setting -- the rooms were clean and comfortable. I would recommend the pancake breakfast -- my wife had the smoked salmon and really enjoyed it. Great food and great hosts!!!

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Overlooking the scenic river, Rivermount House completed a total upgrade and refurbishment in 2008. It offers four-star quality at affordable rates. We feature classic mahogany furniture, heavily embossed wall coverings and exquisite soft furnishings, which have all resulted in creating an ambiance of luxury comfort and style. With a classy polished marble foyer, this accommodation feels more like a boutique hotel but with the personal attention and traditional warmth of a B&B. ... more   less
