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

We had a nice time while staying 2 nights here near Kinsale. The owners are friendly, active farm, settled in a beautiful setting! We had a room with 2 twin beds, our room and bathroom were small, we were not charged for the 5 star rating which we expected, so this was a pleasant surprise! This was the largest B&B... More

This was the only five star B&B we stayed at vacationing in Ireland and weren't sure what to expect. The accommodations were perfect, as was the breakfast (pancakes for our daughter were better than mine, and the scrambled eggs with smoked salmon is something we certainly will miss). The hostess, Claire, had us feeling very welcome in no time at... More

Spent 2 delightful nights at Rivermount B& B near Kinsale. It is a short drive from Kinsale but well worth the drive out away from the hustle & bustle to enjoy their wonderful home & view. Everything was great which made our stay relaxing and comfortable. Full bathroom facilities with bathtub. Breakfast was very good with lots of variety. A... More

This was the biggest disappointment of all the places we stayed on our 10 day trip around Ireland. Made all the more disappointing as I was closely deciding between a place in town but chose this based on it's amazing reviews. We booked a twin room and I carefully checked out the photos and amenities before I booked. When we... More

We were a party of four siblings with our elderly dad who stayed overnight at Rivermount House a few weeks ago. This is such a beautiful establishment in a quiet location which is decorated to a very high standard. My sisters and I shared a triple room which had very comfortable beds and was very quiet. Our family sat in... More

We booked the B&B thru a travel agency and could not be more happy with this choice, the house is big, spacious, clean and very well decorated, I even left a new hat behind when we left the next morning after a delicious Full Irish breakfast. After contacting Claire, she told me no worries she has it and will mail... More

We spent 16 days in Ireland and Scotland in September and this was the second best place we stayed, and not far behind number one. Claire and family were wonderful, the view from the front yard sitting area was great, and the living rooms accomodations were comfortable.
