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!!!

Rivermount House is a bit outside town but it is great. If you want to relax and have a goodnight sleep this place for you. Also our room had an amazing view and breakfast was delicious! The only downside was poor sound proofing but in spite of this we had a pleasant stay. Would recommend.

Simply put, my family really enjoyed staying at Rivermount House. Idyllic, peaceful, beautiful, serene, friendly, inviting, helpful, comfortable, affordable...the list can go on and on. Their house is outside of town, with beautiful views up and down the valleys and fields. Claire and Martin O'Sullivan are wonderful hosts, and very accommodating. And their dog, Charlie, warms right up to guests... More

We stayed in this beautiful bed and breakfast while visiting Kinsale. We were given places to each locally and things to see. We found their hospitality to be excellent. They had a wonderfully decorated common room with a large TV for anyone who didn't get reception in their rooms. Breakfast was one of the best we had in Ireland with... More

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
