We stayed in Kinvara Guesthouse for a few days over Christmas and New Year and I cannot say enough about how delightful Kinvara Guesthouse is. We were greeted by a very pleasant staff member who took us to our beautiful room. There were five of us adults sharing a room, yet the accommodation felt spacious. The entire facility was modern,...

I don't think I've been to the same hotel as previous reviewers.... Location is great, our room 19 was big with very comfortable king size bed but there was a pair of woman's knickers with a pad left on the floor when we got there which is discusting. Haven't even got sorry when mentioned to reception...... Another disappointing thing was... More

This didn't have the feel of a B & B...like a hotel. Which was fine. It was very clean, centrally located, you can walk to anything. And not far from Lisdoonvarna if you want to visit. I ate at the Merriman for the two nights I was there, and it was very good. I happened to stumble on a Christmas... More

There isn't much to say about this hotel except it's simple in decor and it's clean. The person who checked us is helpful (but he doesn't look like he enjoys his job or it just looks that way). That didn't bother me since I only wanted something clean and central. The person that made us our breakfast every morning turns... More

Great wee place. Have stayed here a few times and highly recommend it. Spotless rooms and breakfast, lounge area. This is a B&B though, not a standard hotel so no bar as such but there is a comfortable TV area with squashy couches. Very reasonable, staff are lovely and it's becoming a favourite overnight stop for us.

We had a fantastic 2-night stay at Kinvara Guesthouse. Everything was wonderful; the staff, the breakfast, the design and cleanliness of our room--we were very pleased with everything about this place. It's a great value for the price, and we hope to return in the future!

We stayed here at the recommendation of friends who frequent Kinvara, and were not disappointed. We upgraded to a superior room, which was quite large and had a lovely view of the town. The room was nicely appointed, with a comfortable king bed, plenty of room for luggage and closets, in room tea service and wifi. The bathroom was also... More

We had an attic room on the top floor that was spacious and well appointed - only drawback was the relatively small roof window. The accommodation is quiet, modern and checkin was prompt and courteous.

I stayed here with my niece last Saturday, while visiting the town for a family funeral. We only booked in after attending the graveyard, the owner suggested a room with 2 double beds would be cheaper than 2 separate rooms. The room was a reasonable size, with usual facilities of TV, hairdryer etc. We had a lovely view of the... More

The woman who checked us in seemed like we were putting her out, so I had a bad first impression. But there was a young man working there - cleaned, served breakfast, and even brought ice to our room - who was wonderful. The rooms weren't luxurious, but they were large enough and clean. Wifi worked great. Had a nice... More
