The stunning setting and quiet surroundings are what set this B&B apart for me. After a day of bustle in lovely but crowded Kinsale, it was worth the 10 minute drive to this bucolic oasis. Beautifully appointed rooms with great views of the river valley and rolling farmland, lovely baths, and excellent breakfast. The real standout though is the outdoor... More

We had triple room which was actually two bedrooms and bathroom. Lovely decor and fresh clean bathroom with toiletries. Lovely breakfast and nice indoor area to enjoy the views. Easy car distance from kinsale but not walkable. Tea and coffee facilities in room too.

Rivermount is like a boutique hotel, rather than a B & B. The rooms are beautifully appointed, with luxurious cotton bedding, comfortable pillows and an immaculate bathroom. The owners have really hit the right recipe between being there to give you all the help and advice you need, but they also remain unobtrusive, so you can come and go without... More

The Rivermount House was beautiful, inside and out. Our room was small but adequate. The dining area and sitting areas were exquisitely decorated. Breakfast was excellent and we enjoyed our evening in Kinsale with dinner at Dino's.

An outstanding modern property with gorgeous views overlooking the river. It's only a 10 minute drive into Kinsale and parking there is relatively easy. Our first floor room was very spacious with lovely décor and a large, extremely comfortable bed. Breakfast was superb, with lots of choice. The pancakes (clearly aimed at the U.S. market) were very tasty. Ample parking... More

Rivermount is like a new hotel not a musty B&B. The rooms are comfortable and the view is gorgeous. Best breakfast we had in Ireland. Easy drive into Kinsale, nice not to be in the heart of the town. Don't hesitate.

Lovely setting outside of Kinsale. Clare and her family are excellent hosts. She offered several choices for breakfast, and they were all wonderful. Highly recommend this outstanding B&B. Roooms are comfortable with wifi available throughout the house. You are close enough to Kinsale, yet have a wonderful countryside setting

Beautiful house in the country, with a gorgeous view of the river. Very close to Kinsale, less than 10 mins drive, near Ballinspittle. We stayed in room 3. Lovely and luxe. Were pleasantly surprised to find an "American" wall plug. Great bed and bathroom. Breakfast was wonderful. Separate tables and buffet area. Menu items also available. Try the pancakes. Only...

Fabulous B&B located just out of Kinsale. Martin provided us with good advice, was very helpful, obviously takes a lot of pride in his property. Easily the best accomodation we have had the pleasure to stay in. Delightful breakfast. Would highly recommend.
