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 can not say enough about the wonderful breakfasts they served. While the Irish people were very nice to us everywhere we went, Orla and Aileen were absolutely the nicest... More

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.

We stayed here 1 night for our honeymoon in April. Our only regret is that we didn't book a longer stay! Aileen and Orla were so friendly and welcoming. Even before we arrived Aileen was extremely helpful and answered many of my questions about things to do/see in Kinsale and the surrounding areas over the phone. This was the first... More

This was a pleasant surprise for our stay in Kinsale. The Cloisters was well located, the rooms were beautifully decorated and breakfast was great. I would recommend this property to anyone going to Kinsale

This was a beautiful property at the top end of town. The women that run it are very helpful and a delight. The rooms are spacious and very pleasantly appointed. Great breakfast. Wish we could've spent more time here!

We arrived in the beautiful town of Kinsale and were greeted with smiles by Aileen and Orla who were great hosts, providing excellent recommendations on dining, pubs and routes for our remaining trip. The breakfast was delicious and the rooms were so quaint and very comfortable. I look forward to one day returning and recommend a stay at Cloisters!!

Great location in Kinsale. Room very small but beautifully decorated. Hosts Aileen & Orla were extremely helpful and provided a great breakfast. Parking is available next door and everything is a short walk away. Strongly recommend but suggest try for the larger room.

My niece, mother and I had the opportunity to stay at The Cloisters in September 2014. Aileen and Orla went to great lengths to make our stay exceptional. The location of the B&B to town was great as we could walk even though my mother is elderly. It was our first time in Kinsale and I really hope that we... More

My wife and I stayed here one night while on vacation in Ireland. Aileen and Orla are great hosts. The location is perfect. It is located about 2 blocks from downtown Kinsale and there is a small parking lot on the left hand side of the building. It is 1.75 miles to Charles Fort which made for a nice 5K... More
