Reached the Blue Horizon after quite a drive, not sure what to expect. It was dark when we arrived and had no idea what to expect. Found a warm and friendly place With a great feel. Woke up to an amazing view of the bay, realizing this is so much more than a B&B! Recommended!

We stayed one night during September 2013. We booked via the web, which was very efficient. Our upstairs room had a balcony and was a good size for two. Our only issue was that we had to drive to the next village for dinner, as the Blue Horizon was not open for night meals the night we stayed. The staff... More

My wife and I had a wonderful overnight stay at this lovely B&B. It is not often that I would score everything as excellent but, on this occasion, I have no hesitation. The room was lovely - clean and very comfortable, the staff were very helpful and friendly and the food was excellent. We met other people from America and... More

We stayed here for one night durning the cork jazz festival, and to be honest we only booked it because kinsale was booked out. But what a nice surprise we got when we arrived, it really is a lovely little place. The owners are very welcoming and they have created a lovely warm and relaxing atmosphere about the place. The...

A truly delightful 2 night experience one we would highly recommend. A long days driving led us to Blue Horizon. Our host Jimmy showed us to a beautiful spotless room with a view of the ocean, we arrived just as the sun was setting. We were asked if there was anything we would like and I suggested a glass of...

Host was very nice. Breakfast was good. The Blue Horizon is outside Kinsale quite a ways. The town of Kinsale is a zoo. Flooded with tourists. My room at the Blue Horizon was above a party of 100+ people with a disc jockey that went past midnight. Not only was the noise overwhelming, but the Internet was so overloaded by... More

It saddens me that you did not enjoy your stay at The Blue Horizon. Our bar is a single story building with no bedrooms overhead. The two bedrooms at the front, people have said that seeing the sun rise up out of the ocean more than makes up any disturbance. It is very rarely we have parties at the bar... More

We stayed at the Blue Horizon while visiting Kinsale. It won our "Best Location" award for our recent trip. The inn sits up on a hill with spectacular views of beach, ocean, farms, and the Old Head. Golfers, note that the beautiful course at Old Head is about a ten-minute drive from the B&B--very convenient. It is an easy fifteen-minute... More

Fabulous setting and clean and comfortable rooms with fantastic sea views! We were travelling with a 7 month old baby but nothing was too much trouble and we were made to feel so very welcome. Breakfast superb and relaxed atmosphere with friendly locals in the bar made the visit most enjoyable! If we get the chance, we will definitely be... More

Spent three nights at the Blue Horizon and could not happier with our choice. Jimmy and Mary were wonderful hosts, and the attached pub was wonderful to be able to have a pint and visit and then just walk to our room! Breakfast was plentiful and delicious. We highly recommend.

We stayed one night at the Blue Horizon and wish it had been a longer stay. We had a lovely ocean view from our room. Jimmy and Mary are delightful hosts. The on-site pub was great and very welcome after a long drive. Dinner at the Spotted Door just down the road was very good. We would certainly return to... More
