Nice place Good nights sleep Walkable ( not super close) to downtown- that has some advantages now that Kinsale is so busy Consider a taxi back from visiting town Valerie remembered that my wife had dietary restrictions- gluten and dairy- so that was great and thoughtful Would stay there again

Had a great stay at Woodlands House. Valerie met us and was very friendly and incredibly helpful, assisting us with bookings for the airport and wedding venue for the next stay. The house is immaculate and well located for Kinsale. It's a 5 minute walk down the hill, a 10 minute walk back up but straightforward and my pregnant wife... More

We stayed only one night but the stay was very pleasant. The accommodations were excellent. We wished we were able to stay longer. The facility throughout was spotless. The "full Irish breakfast" was good. Food was served hot and was served promptly. The grounds were very attractive. Our hosts were pleasant and helpful.

We were in Ireland for 10 nights and stayed in Adare, Killarney, Kinsale, Kilkenny, and Dublin. The Woodlands House was, by far, my favorite b&b from our trip. The interior was lovely. Rooms 5&6 were spacious and comfortable. Valerie and Brian were so friendly. Their home is absolutely lovely and VERY clean. Valerie is very particular and holds a high... More

My wife and I spent 2 nights here in May 2015. Valerie and Brian have an excellent property at the top of the hill, an easy walk into the town of Kinsale. We were warmly welcomed and found all facilities and breakfasts to be excellent.

Stayed for 3 nights. Cannot fault this B & B in any way. We were warmly welcomed. House is spotless and Brian and Valerie very friendly and helpful. The room was spacious, comfortable, well equipped and very clean. Breakfast was well cooked with a good variety and very tasty. It should be rated 5 star by the agencies! Good value... More

This is a lovely house in a quite area, spotlessly clean, with lovely grounds a credit to the owners The owners however seemed a little aloof in our opinion. Our room was smallish and this is borne out by the fact the door hit the end of the bed every time you opened it. The wardrobes were half size as... More

Stayed here for two nights, great welcome received on arrival. The house is less than 10 minute walk to centre of Kinsale, very easy walk to town. Rooms are very comfortable and clean, the breakfast is great and a varied menu to suit all tastes. Wonderful B&B and will definitely return.

Very comfortable and nicely situated just a little bit out of town. Large comfortable bedrooms, great bed, super breakfast with home made soda bread (yum) and friendly hosts. Only one negative point.....the walls are quite thin and on the first night of our two night stay, the people in the room next door were quite noisy and very loud snorers,... More

Stayed 2 nights in Woodlands House recently and loved it. So clean and warm and homely. Breakfast was very nice served by the very friendly owners. Good location within walking distance of Kinsale town, though it is up the hill, which of course meant great views.
