My husband and I stayed here for a night in May. Orla and Aileen are so welcoming and helpful, pointing out various places to eat and drink in Kinsale as well as recommending a lovely walk to Charles Fort (which is well worth it). The bedroom we stayed in was tastefully and thoughtfully furnished and the bed was incredibly comfortable... More

To say that The Cloisters exceeded our expectations is an understatement. Orla and Aileen are delightful hosts who truly embody the friendliness and warmth of the Irish. During our 4 night stay they out of their way to insure that we enjoyed our time in Kinsale, from the wonderful breakfasts to arranging for a driver to pick us up at... More

Aileen and Orla are magnificent hosts at their charming B and B. Great breakfast service and the location in the heart of Kinsale was outstanding! Park the car and enjoy the nightlife. If you are in Kinsale, this is the place to be!

This B&B topped our expectations. The rooms were immaculate, the location was perfect and the breakfasts were absolutely excellent. Aileen is an amazing cook! Orla greeted us with a welcoming smile and gave us lots of information for sightseeing the gorgeous town of Kinsale. Thanks to Orla and Aileen, our Kinsale visit was perfect!!

On our Ireland visit last month we stopped for a night in Kinsale at the Cloisters B&B. What a wonderful treat. Orla and Aileen welcomed us at the door. What a wonderful home! Spotless and cheerfully decorated. Although we were only there for one night we enjoyed it immensely. They made dinner reservations for us at Toddies. The breakfast was... More

We have just left Kinsale after spending two wonderful nights at Cloisters. Originally intended to stay one night and move on somewhere else as the owner had explained she only had the smaller double room available when I rang to enquire about availability the day before arrival. We had just spent two nights in Kilkenny on our short tour of... More

Orla and Aileen were the perfect hosts. They were so accomodating and helpful that they added to our Ireland experience. The B&B was immaculate and the beds were very comfortable.

I've stayed in this B&B twice now; once recently on my own, and once a couple of years ago with my family. It's really excellent. The rooms are spotless, the beds are comfortable, the breakfasts delicious! orla and Aileen do a brilliant job, and make everyone feel very welcome. And the home baked scones and soda bread just top everything... More

This is a great B&B in a fantastic town. Our room was comfortable and the breakfast was fantastic. The owners were so helpful in pointing us towards food and attractions, even helped us plan our next day to get the most out of our drive. I wish we had allowed for more time here.
