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

What more can I say about The Blue Horizon? Wonderful service and accuracy in the booking. A nice pub for a pint at night. Fantastic breakfast. Very close to The Old Head of Kinsale Golf Club. And lots of local knowledge for the area. I've stayed there twice and look forward to my next visit later this spring.

I had the good luck of passing the blue horizon August 2014 and getting the last available room for my family. Room with a view and warm service from the owners. Great advice on the area, nice evening in the bar and a good breakfast following morning. Beautiful beach a stone throws away and good restaurants nearby.I really recommend this... More

We tried to book at the old head hotel, but this was fully booked. The blue horizon is within reasonable distance. The hotel has a great view, enough parking place, decent rooms and showers and a local pub. Very friendly people who really make an effort.

We suffered from poor timing, the wife and I, when we booked this lovely B&B for our 30th anniversary. Arrived in a fog that never lifted for three days, but I'm not going to complain about that. Why? Our hosts were simply the best, just the best. Kind, helpful and did everything they could to help us enjoy the stay... More

I initially chose the Blue Horizon because of its reasonable price and good reviews. (Kinsale is one of the more expensive Irish towns to stay in). It is about 8 miles out of town, but in my opinion, the drive is worth it. The Blue Horizon is perched at the top of a cliff overlooking the sea. If you like... More

This is a wonderful B&B with breathtaking views! We were a group of 7 family members ranging from age 26-82! We all were very happy with our accommodations. The owners and their daughter were very helpful and friendly. Our room was clean and the bed was comfortable. The bathroom had a large jacuzzi tub, strong shower, and the water was... More

Staff was so friendly! The bed was so comfortable and the view from the bed - breathtaking! The breakfast the next day was good and the place just has a lovely charm to it. Would highly recommend to a friend!

The welcome was warm and friendly and the food was good. We had a very nice stay in a spacious room with a lovely powerful shower. Garrettstown beach is beautiful, a sandy bay as far as the eye can see. Open fields behind. I would recommend staying here.

This is a wonderful guest house. I was blown away when I walked into the spacious room that actually had nice armchairs to sit in, and oh what a view. The bathroom was huge with a jacuzzi spa bath (which I used). We missed out on eating at a close by restaurant Pink elephant and would suggest you book if... More
