Comfortable room and delightful situation on a hill within easy walking distance(minutes) to Kinsale shops and seafront. Brian and Valerie run the B&B with grace and efficiency; they are each charming and wonderful hosts. They were very helpful in suggesting other places nearby to visit. Breakfast was wonderful as well; our best in Ireland. We stayed two nights.

Welcoming hosts Valerie and Brian made our stay positive. We had a large room, scenic and quiet area about 8 minutes walk from historic town of Kinsale (downhill) and great breakfast with a wide choice on offer. Valerie greeted us with tea in the lounge, explained various good places to visit and how to get there, gave us maps and... More

Very nice B&B in a beautiful house. We had a clean and spacious room. A huge selection of tasty breakfast awaits you in the morning. The hosts are very friendly and helpful. The beautiful city centre is in walking distance.

Beautiful house! A quality B&B with excellent, spacious rooms. Very comfortable and immaculate. Lovely welcome by Valerie. Close to downtown. Excellent breakfast with lots of variety. Delicious! 5 star in my opinion. I would recommend this place to anyone.

The room was great, it was spacious and clean. We were able to order breakfast from a menu, and the food was wonderful. The bed and breakfast was close enough to downtown to walk, however, the streets aren't lit at night, and there is no shoulder or sidewalk to walk on, which isn't ideal when walking home later at night....

This was one of the best bed and breakfast we stayed at during our 3 weeks in Ireland. The room was spacious, comfortable and clean. We even had a little table and 2 chairs; and the view was incredible. We enjoyed a great breakfast each morning and the hosts were pleasant and accommodating.

Professional grade accommodations. New floors, carpets, facilities, and quality linens. Our view of the bay was photo worthy; tremendous. They produce a breakfast menu with excellent options and the soda bread and preserves are home made. Their eye towards detail results in simply tremendous experience.

We stayed at Woodlands house for only one night but wished we had stayed longer. The house is beautiful, our room was decorated so nicely and the beds were very comfortable. The breakfast was delicious and the hosts very warm and calm and welcoming. The view from the house of the harbor is lovely and it is a short downhill... More
