Loved the view and location. The rooms were beautifully updated and the facilties beautiful. The husband and wife team were a joy to visit with. Its centrally located to many great tourists stops. Also kinsale offers some great food. We will definitely visit here again and stay longer.

This is a truly lovely place to stay when you are visiting Kinsale. As some have already mentioned it is indeed not in town but when you have a car, you'll get there in under 10 mins (it's 5 km). The owners were very friendly and helpful about where to park and what to see and breakfast is just great.... More

Stayed two nights in this nice B&B a little way out of Kinsale. Everywhere was clean and well-furnished and it was clear the owner took a pride in her business. There was a lovely view from the front of the house and we enjoyed a welcome cup of tea sitting outside admiring the view and meeting the family's dog. Tea,... More

This was our first stop on our 17 day excursion through Ireland. This B&B is on the outskirts of Kinsale, but well worth the drive. We were welcomed by Martin who showed us to our rooms. The only reason for not giving it excellent is the lack of bathtub rails and slick tile floor with a very difficult stepdown. I... More

This was my first and one of my best B&B experience in all of Ireland. Clare and Martin (the owners) are wonderful people, very friendly and accommodating. This house is stunning on the inside and out. Great Style. The view is absolutely amazing. The breakfast was absolutely delicious. I would recommend the maple pancakes. I will definitely stay here when... More

I have stayed at 3 other places in Kinsale (1 hotel and 2 other B&Bs) and this is head and shoulders above those other places! 8 of us women from the U.S. on a 2-week jaunt around Ireland spent 2 nights here in August, and each and every one of us wished we were staying here longer! It's just a... More

My dad and I just spent the October Bank Holiday weekend (3 nights) in the Rivermount House in Kinsale. From the moment I picked up the phone to make the booking to Claire to the moment we left after our 3 day stay I almost felt like a member of the family. Firstly our welcome was very warm, in fact...

Friendly and obliging hostess. Plenty of public rooms to meet others or be on your own. Well furnished bedroom with nice en suite. Great view of the river below, from the public rooms and our room on the ground floor. Very nice breakfast with interesting choices of hot food. Great recommendations for cafés and a Physio in town. Finding the... More

Spent two nights with two friends over bank holiday weekend. Stay here if you want to be away from hustle and bustle of kinsale. I slept better than I have in a long time due to the peaceful surroundings and comfy bed. Hosts v friendly, breakfast delicious, loved the decor- room spotless. Kinsale town only short drive which suited us... More

At first, we were a little disappointed to find that this B & B was about 1.5 miles outside of the city center. However, it is a beautiful home with gorgeous grounds overlooking the water. The home has a warm and cozy but updated modern decor. Our hosts were playing beautiful, soft Irish music in the background and we had... More
