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.

Our family spent 2 nights in two rooms, one double bedroom and one family room that had 4 twin beds. Both rooms were very large and well appointed with large bathrooms as well. The rooms have lots of electric plugs and even have a two plug US outlet converted to 110V. The internet worked well in both rooms. There is... More

Over the past 15 years, I've stayed in 4 different hotels and B&Bs in Kinsale. Rivermount House is far and away the best of the bunch, and I'll revise my travel dates before I'll stay elsewhere. Claire and Martin have a beautiful property and they obviously take great pride in their property and in making their guests feel welcome and... More

Kinsale was our third stop on our trip around Ireland. We were quite pleased when we arrived to the town, so beautiful! As we continued on through to find our b&b we were a little uneasy to see that it was too far out of town to walk. However, that didn't matter much once we arrived to Rivermount. We were... More
