Was staying near bye , called in for a drink . The views are amazing the bar is basic but on a sunny day it would be a dream to sit outside on one of the benches and enjoy the sunshine . Would recommend having a look at the bandb options.

For our honeymoon through Ireland we wanted to stay at least in one inn with the idea to combine a typical Irish evening in a pub with an overnight, the Blue Horizon was that inn. We were only a bit disappointed when we arrived there because the pub was only open in the weekend and because it remoted location the... More

We were just passing through on a lovely day and decided to stay the night. This B&B is close to the beach, it faces the sea and the view from the large window in the bedroom is beautiful, you can sit outside your room and watch the sunset. there is a bar attached which was nice to have a drink...

We chose this B&B because of it's proximity to old head with kids. It has gorgeous vistas of the beach and old head in the distance. It is not overly fancy, very beach cottage feel (also spotless). The best part is the pub downstairs that is only open to guests during the week, which was the perfect place to get... More

Stunning views for cliff-top location. Close to beach. Clean, bright, comfortable room. Very helpful, friendly hosts. Great craic at the informal session in the bar in the evening (last Friday of the month). Lovely breakfast.

Mary and Jimmy were wonderful hosts! We enjoyed spending time with the family chatting. They acknowledged that it was our honeymoon and made us feel right at home. We had a lovely room with a beautiful view and jacuzzi tub. They went out of their way to give us travel suggestions and help us out. This was definitely one of... More

This was our last destination on a two-week trip to Ireland in June 2014 - and was a perfect ending to a wonderful vacation. We stayed for 3 nights, and I can't think of anything that could have been nicer. We are a family of three with a tall teenage son, and I reserved the one-bedroom cottage on the end... More

You will have to try very hard to beat the view from this location. Right around the corner from Old Head. Location is friendly and accommodating with an on site pub. Perhaps just a little dated but that adds to the charm. I would recommend it. Access by the typical somewhat narrow Irish roads. It is just a few minutes... More

My husband and I traveled to Kinsale due to a flight delay and happened to stay at The Blue Horizon B & B. We are so very delighted that we did. Everyone was so polite and welcoming, the room was lovely as well. Simple, but peaceful. You have an amazing view of the ocean and we were even able to... More
