Very pretty and clean B&B in the lovely town of Kinsale. Slightly on the outskirts of town, but within walking distance, or a very short drive. The hosts were warm and friendly, and helpful with suggesting places to see, good pubs/restaurants etc. On arrival we were offered tea and home made biscuits in the sitting room, which was such a...

We were booked at another B&B. After driving around for 3 hours, due to signal problems with the GPS, we asked for help from locals. The owners welcomed us at 11:00 PM. They were so friendly, and welcoming. The accommodation was GREAT. Breakfast was delicious. Thank You so much for everything. You are the BEST!

Upon arrival we enjoyed delicious oatmeal cookies and tea in their spacious nicely decorated living room. Our room was large in the front of the house and on the ground floor. Breakfast was in a good sized room and it was delicious, scrambled eggs and salmon. There was a computer that you could use. There was easy parking in front... More

What can one say? Try this before anywhere including hotels. This was the cherry on the cake during our holiday in Southern Ireland. Clean, well maintained, quality furniture and linens, excellent shower in the bathroom. A breakfast to cater for all tastes and appetites. Easy walk into the town of Kinsale ( which is really jumping at night, but safe)... More

This was a great find for us on our tour of Southern Ireland. A wonderful BnB at the top of the hill before going down to Kinsale. We were welcomed with tea and cookies to a warm comfortable stay. Very clean room. A full Irish Breakfast sent us on our way well rested from a quiet stay.

Spent two nights in the Woodlands with my family, 7 adults and 8 children. We were made feel so welcome by the owners. We were shown our rooms on arrival they were immaculate, spacious and spotless. I had the best nights sleep, forgot I wasn't in my own bed. The breakfast menu was outstanding, what a selection. The hot chocolate... More

My wife and I just spent a night while on a 10 day trip through Ireland. This place was immaculate. Very clean from the gardens to the rooms. It was just a short walk into town and in was a very quaint village. We ate at an Italian pizza place and the flat bread pizza was terrific. The room was... More

My husband and I stayed at this B and B with our two little girls ages 8 months and 2 years old. My husbands parents also stayed. I called in advanced and booked two rooms and forgot to say that we would have the babies with us, I presumed it wouldn't be a big issue. As soon as we arrived... More

My family and I spent only one night at Woodlands but had a lovely time. Valerie and Brian were wonderful hosts and breakfast was amazing! Our room was spacious and comfortable. The house is a short walk to the beautiful city of Kinsale. Would definitely recommend to others visiting the area.

We spent 2 nights in Woodlands. The rooms were hotel quality. But what beats any hotel was the breakfasts. Made to order with beautiful homemade brown bread. The owners were very friendly. It was a few minutes walk into the main town but very quite area for a peaceful nights sleep. We will be back .
