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

We just returned from a 2 week trip to Ireland, staying in B and Bs, and the Kinvara Guesthouse was the absolute best place that we stayed! Large, spotless room. Beautiful countryside view. Very reasonably priced. Great breakfast. And the staff was just exception in making sure that our needs were met. Great stay!

This was a different sort of lodging than most we stayed in Ireland. It was a small hotel near the center of the small town. The rooms were modern, furnished with an Ikea style of furniture rather than antiques. We had a room on the backside that opened to a shared patio area with picnic tables which was a nice... More

Really comfortable guesthouse that's more like a hotel, but very reasonably priced and located right in the centre of Kinvara. Breakfast was one of the best I've had in any hotel with poached eggs to perfection, a cafetière of lovely coffee and delicious pastries, as well as a fabulous full Irish.

Only spent one night here but the room was clean, plenty of hot water, and good wifi. It's not fancy but it is affordable. I would suggest getting there early as there are only a few places to eat in Kinvara and they do fill up. Be sure to talk to the desk people about what to see. The young... More
