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.

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.
