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

From the outside looked a bit old and weathered, but it is on a headland. But inside, the rooms were comfortable and warm. I could hear people above walking about, but not too bad. Room and en suite good size. Comfy lounge with views of the bay, that's where you had to sit to get wifi. There was a bar... More

Mary, Alice, and the rest of the family at Blue Horizon made our stay very special. What a beautiful setting, and Mary was very attentive. She even arranged a very special tour for us involving potatoes... Breakfast was great, and the rooms were very comfortable. Our group from Houston highly recommends Blue Horizon. We can't wait to go back.

When we arrived in Kinsale, we started following our GPS to Garretstown, which we thought was an area in Kinsale. It is, but about 7 miles out on the top of the hill overlooking the ocean near Old Head Golf Course and a big surfing area. Once we got over the shock of being so far out of town, we... More

Family of five stayed for three nights. It has a lovely location with view of the sea and green acres. The beach is 300 meters from the hotel. Beds were breakfast were OK, but not more. It was a nice stay. Compared to the other B&B we visited, it was clearly of a lower standard, but this also was reflected... More
