Let’s get this out of the way first – the rooms are small and the showers are even smaller. If you are looking for luxury, this is not the place. BUT, if a clean room with a super attentive staff in a location that is steps from almost anywhere you will want to visit in Kinsale is desired, Tierney’s Guesthouse... More

I have to say that I read the previous trip adviser reports on Tierneys before visiting. It's true what they said that the room was basic but clean. You wouldn't stay here if you needed a romantic week end away with luxury. Or would you stay here if you needed a peaceful get away. You would stay here if you... More

What can I say "Great Location" Dominic was a GREAT Host & made us feel very welcome (we didn't want to leave).Excellent cafe next door, great food. It's very true about what they say about the Irish, the ones we met (and we met a lot) where just so friendly. Would recommend this Hotel & we will be going back... More

I can't say enough about the natural , friendly welcome we got staying here. My family & friends came from far & near from Limerick cork London Usa to spend two nights in Kinsale. From last year to when we booked it there was no wish cumbersome for Mary or Dominic they gave us tips where to go , paid... More

Average room at front of building, was like a nightclub going in the room all night! Lots of pubs opposite with live music that wasn't even good music! The receptionist questioned me when I asked for a spare towel (only given one each in room ) I had to explain I needed it for my hair! Wouldn't stay again

There wasn't anything spectacular about the room itself. It is very basic and small as others have mentioned...just enough space to walk around the bed, and the bath is no larger then necessary to fit a little shower, toilet and small sink...but everything was clean and the staff was friendly. The only real complaint was the mattress was in need... More

As mention in previous reviews, the rooms are small and basic, but we found them to be clean and comfortable, Kinsale is a very busy place with limited parking, so you may have to park a fair distance from the guest house

We stayed here in early May of this year. There is no dedicated parking, and the rooms are very small, and the bathroom even smaller. The rooms were clean, but furniture flimsy. It is near the center of town, but would not recommend.

It's in a great location but there is quite a walk to parking. It's this way for the entire little village. Our room was quite small and the bed was not comfortable. But the room was clean and the shower worked great. Breakfast is extra but's it's conveniently in the same building.

It is an ok guest house that looks more like a hotel. The breakfast is very good because you take it on the cafe beside the hotel but its not cheap. The service is not bad but we crossed few words with the manager to say more.
