Really lovely hotel, beautiful location, stunning views and the food was great both at the wedding and breakfast; great attention to detail. It's also within easy distance to kinsale town by car which is a town with a real costal village vibe

I stayed in the Carlton hotel for two nights with friends while the Kinsale rugby 7's tournament was on. The hotel was beautiful with a fabulous view. The staff were very friendly and obliging. We ate in the bar one of the nights and the food was delicious and served to us by lovely waitresses and an extremely friendly bar... More

Stayed here one week ago for one night. We've got 2 rooms with the lovely sea view. The staff were all very helpful and friendly to us. We really enjoyed our cocktails in the bar. And the breakfast was nice indeed. Thanks!

I made a last minute booking at this hotel after a stressful few days. As I arrived so late in the day I wasn't expecting much with the room options but the very kind receptionist Emma set me up with a beautiful room! I ordered room service later in the evening and the food was delicious! Breakfast the next morning... More

I had a disappointing visit to this hotel due to the service. When we arrived around 6pm to a mostly empty hotel (the parking lot was <40% full), the woman at the front desk decided to play "let's make a deal" for a room upgrade. (We stayed a total of 6 other hotels during this trip in Ireland, and all... More

I'm just back from a week in Kinsale with my family staying in the Holiday Lodges at Carlton Kinsale. They were absolutely ideal for our family with 3 big bedrooms, all ensuite and a living area and small kitchen. My boys loved having their own space and bathroom ( which was a real treat for them! ) and it allowed... More

I went here with two friends for a relaxing spa day and afternoon tea. The spa was fabulous and the staff in the spa very nice. However when we went for afternoon tea we were told by the barman we didn't have a booking. We had booked the spa and afternoon tea as package so we were 100% positive the... More

A nice hotel for a wedding. As this is nearly a weekly business for the hotel, staff should remember that a wedding is a very special day for the bride and groom. Be careful not allow the repetitive nature of you do to compromise customer care in the build up to the event. Our room, 117, was an upgrade. However,... More
