I spent two nights in this hotel on a mid-week break. While it is located a little outside Kinsale town, this does not detract from the hotel. There is a very convenient bus service provided for a small fee, going very frequently right up until midnight. I must remark on the bedrooms- fantastic floor to ceiling windows with a view... More

Nearly cancelled this hotel due to a few bad reviews I had read before making our visit I'm so glad I didn't cancel as it turned out to be a really nice hotel and one that I hope to revisit next year. The staff were nice, hotel was very clean, the food was lovely. Every morning the breakfast was fresh... More

My Husband and I stayed here in September for 3 nights. We stay in hotels on a regular basis, particularly Carlton hotels and to be honest, this hotel does not live up to the usual Carlton standard we are used to. We were kept waiting at Reception when we arrived, whilst the receptionist checked her screen for notes. There were... More

Myself, my wife and our 18 month old stayed in the hotel in April in room 105. We live in Cork city and the sole purpose was to get a night away. For the most part our experience was enjoyable but when the wedding band started playing at 10 o clock, our room echoed with the sound of the music.... More

To celebrate our anniversary we spent one night at the Carlton. There was a wedding in process. Lots of kids running up and down and only one staff member at reception for check in. Besides that we had a lovely stay. The facilities were very nice. We got massages at the spa before leaving. It was a great way to... More

Our wedding was held in the Carlton in September and a better event we could not have wished for. To say the day ran smoothly would be the understatement of the decade. On our honeymoon, I met other brides who asked me what was the thing that went wrong on my wedding day, as apparently that happens to people. I... More

Kinsale is a beautiful town to visit, the people are amazing, and it earns its reputation as a food haunt in Ireland. Sadly having booked into the Carlton, that image could well have been shattered. I booked a 3 bedroom suite with kitchenette for my group before we left, as well as a number of rooms for some colleagues. On... More
