This delightful guesthouse is situated in the pretty fishing village of Kinvara on the shores of Galway Bay. We spent two nights here recently on our travels around Ireland. We arrived quite late on the first night having been waylaid in our touring around the Cliffs of Moher, but we were given a lovely welcome by our hosts. Our room... More

I was pleasantly surprised with the quality of the guesthouse, facilities and rooms. The place is clean, comfortable and well maintained with modern furnishings. The restaurant service was great, and I had the full Irish breakfast every morning which was great! Right in the middle of Kinvara, across the road from many pubs and next door to the local supermarket.... More

We get reserved a family room for the four of us and got a huge room overlooking the town. The room was spotless and comfortable. I would have to say that this was probably one of the best values that we found on our 2 week trip through Ireland. The pub across the street has good food.

A perfectly functional place, our room was spotless with a comfy bed and a great shower. Breakfast was ok, budget and functional (sliced pan bread) but with some choice. The guesthouse is right in the middle of Kinvara, which when we visited over Easter wkd, was just waking from the winter slumber and was still a bit sleepy. Location-wise its... More

We were delighted with our stay at Kinvara Guesthouse. Our accommodations were spotlessly clean and comfortable. We enjoyed the fine quality linens and comfortable beds. The staff was very helpful and friendly. The breakfast was delicious and generous. The breakfast waitstaff was fast, accurate and attentive. This was a wonderful place to stay.

Stayed here for one night having stopped off on a cycling tour. More of a hotel than a B&B so don't expect to be welcomed with a cup of tea and a slice of cake. In summary, this was a good place to stay for a night or so conveniently located as it is within a few minutes walk of... More

This guesthouse is very convenient for attending the Medieval Banquet at Dunguaire Castle. (Great fun!) It is located in the middle of the small town, convenient for shops, strolls to the waterfront, and just across the street from a friendly pub. (Keogh's) The rooms are modern and clean and the breakfast provides a large selection, including the "full Irish." However,... More

We came to the Kinvara Guest House with a wildlife tour and were very impressed with it as a base. Lovely location, spacious and comfortable room and the staff were friendly and helpful. Breakfasts delicious and meals at the nearby Pier Head restaurant were appetising and reasonably priced

You know what they say about not judging a book by its cover? Well the same applies to The Kinvara Guesthouse. Not the prettiest facade but once you are through the door... Wow! The furnishings are lovely. The rooms clean and comfortable. We stayed in room 21 which had a lovely view out of the window. The gentleman on the... More
