The owners, Orla and Aileen, went above and beyond providing us with directions and recommendations before we arrived in Kinsale. The room was spacious and clean. The breakfast had the most variety of choices in any B&B we have stayed at thus far. I highly recommend the Cloisters for a wonderful stay in Kinsale!

We stayed 2 nights at Cloisters and loved it. It is close to, but not smack in the center of the main activity of the town. Thus, it was a little bit quieter, but still a very quick walk to anywhere. Orla and Aileen were gracious and friendly hosts (and patient with our late arrival), and gave us great advice... More

Thank you, Orla and Aileen! You were so gracious and helpful, you made our first two nights in Ireland such a joy. The room was beautiful and comfortable, the breakfasts delicious, and your recommendations for things to see and do were spot on. I highly recommend the Cloisters for a wonderful stay in Kinsale.

The room was immaculate and spacious and beautiful. Orla and Eileen went out of their way to make us feel comfortable. They provided great tips on local entertainment and meals. They spent time calling to find us just the right b&b for the next 2 nights. I told so many travelors they should stay at Cloisters. ..it's our favorite place... More

A very good location in Kinsale, up the hill a bit from the commercial area but only one block walk to it. Orla and Aileen were very helpful with their recommendations for dinner and served a good breakfast. Convenient parking.

The Garmin/Sat Nav took us through many narrow streets around Kinsale trying to get us to the Cloisters that we finally gave up and called. One of the hosts met us in a Shopping Center parking lot within 2 minutes, and that was the beginning of a wonderful weekend. Great accommodations, wonderful breakfast, friendly advice, just a block or two... More

The beds were the most comfortable I have slept in in a long time. Orla and Eileen who run the Cloisters serve great breakfast, they were so helpful with everything I needed nothing was to much trouble. I highly recommend a visit if you are ever in Kinsale, to this spotlessly clean Bed and Breakfast. Happy Camper Christine Tobin

This was our second stay in three years at the Cloisters, and it was great to be back. Very cute property with fantastic hospitality. Aileen and Orla are so welcoming and ready to help in any way. Very pretty decor, nice amenities. Great scones too!

Excellent B & B! Would highly recommend. Aileen and Orla were wonderful! They were very pleasant and helpful with travel suggestions. Breakfasts were fabulous! Location was perfect, right in the center of town. Can't say enough good things about this wonderful B & B!

My husband, 20 year old son, and I spent two delightful nights in Kinsale at the Cloisters in August of 2013. The location of the property is perfect -- an easy walk into town and all that it has to offer. The hospitality shown to us by Aileen and Orla was incredible. They are so warm and friendly; we left... More
