You can't do any better than Aileen and Orla's place in the heart of Kinsale. The room was better than cozy (Rick Steve's term). the room was a good size with some extra attractions we had not seen elsewhere (e.g. a ceiling fan). Breakfast was great and our hosts couldn't be more friendly and helpful.

Orla and Aileen are most welcoming hostesses, and Cloisters B&B itself was a cozy, clean, comfortable home during our short stay in Kinsale. The breakfast was cooked to order and was so delicious!! Orla and Aileen were very helpful and took time to talk with us about our next stops on our trip, offering suggestions for activities, routes, and restaurants.... More

We spent two nights here, the B&B is very close to town, so you can park your car and spend a day just walking around and seeing the sights. Aileen and Orla are a font of knowledge for all that is going on in the area, and readily offer all they know. They are very attentive hosts and we found... More

This 5 room B&B is run like a fine Swiss clock! Its really clean, the bed & sheets comfortable. The room is large, in suite bathroom with plenty of hot water for shower, and lastly the room and breakfast room was decorated cleanly but tasteful style. The two hostesses run this by themselves, they prefer check ins between 4:00pm-6:00pm... however,... More

We stayed five nights at this bed and breakfast in Kinsale, Ireland. It was very modern with flat screen tv and WiFi. The rooms are small, but large enough and all ensuite. There was a fan in the room and it was needed because of the weather which was very warm. The owners are the most fantastic part of the... More

We stayed at Cloisters B&B for 1 night in May 2014. We throughly enjoyed our stay which was perfect in every way. We cannot fault the 5* hospitality that Orla and Aileen delivered. We were greeted with a very warm welcome to Kinsale, and Orla and Aileen were very flexible with our arrival time. They told us everything we would... More

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!
