We found Tierney's as a reasonable option during a very busy time in Kinsale. At first I was apprehensive, as there's no 'lobby' but simply a sign, a door, and a little office off the side of a hallway. But we had a very friendly welcome. We were led down the hall and up the staircase to see and approve... More

As I have said in the title this B and B is in a great position being right in the middle of the town but this does come with a down side. Music from a business near by went on until about 1am so if you want a good nights sleep maybe go elsewhere. We were not too concerned about... More

Within walking distance to the many shops & restaurants Kinsale has to offer. This Guesthouse is centrally located within town. The breakfast is served at the cafe next door and was delicious. WiFi was free with a strong, consistent signal. I would highly recommend this Guesthouse for your visit to Kinsale.

I would highly recommend this B&B. The price is very reasonable for Kinsale. The staff go out of their say to make their guests feel welcome. The location is ideal, everything is within walking distance. A car would just be a nuisance here. Our twin room was tiny but had everything that we needed and was very clean. The breakfast... More

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in Kinsale. The guesthouse staff were hands down the best thing about this accommodation. They were super sweet and helpful at every turn. The breakfast was fantastic in the cafe next door. Awesome staff there as well. I will allow that being in the midst of cobbled streets and bustling nightlife does make for a... More

My husband and I stayed here on April 21, 2014. Room was small but perfect for two people for one night. Great location too and staff very helpful with giving us restaurant recommendations and a map of the town. We had a room that faced the back of the building so it was quiet. I would definitely stay here again!

An absolute gem in the centre of Kinsale. Perfectly located, friendly staff, terrific food and ideal for our visit. Would recommend it to anyone wishing to see Kinsale. Great jam and delicious coffee! This is the third time I've stayed here!

Mary is the standout feature of this B and B. She is extremely helpful to guests, from finding a lost earring to looking up bus timetables to Cork. Mary's wit, warmth, dedication to the comfort of her guests and sense of humor made my stay much more pleasant than it would have been otherwise. The location is perfect, walkable to... More

A friend and I stayed in this B&B last night. It was truly the worst place I have ever stayed in. The rooms were tiny, dirty, noisy, damp and absolutely FREEZING. I wore socks, jumper and leggings in bed and had to put my coat over duvet for heat. Breakfast was in restaurant next door. The manager there made us... More

It's been many years since I stayed at a guest house and didn't know what to expect. This was booked by a friend as part of a golfing trip and what a great little place it is. The rooms aren't large but are big enough for a double bed, a dressing table, TV, and they also have en suite shower... More
