We stayed in Jo's Rooms (and frequented her Cafe) for 3 nights and 3 lovely days in Kinsale on June 6-8, 2012. We rented 3 rooms which, while quite basic, were clean, roomy enough and quiet. All had an en suite bath. For the price, 25 euros per person per night, it was a steal. There is no elevator, phone or functioning TV, but that wasn't a concern. Rebel, the Irish setter, greets you through his door off the stairwell, and Jo and her staff were extremely welcoming and helpful. Jo's restaurant recommendations provided us with some of the best meals we had while in Ireland. As another reviewer stated, the location is perfect. We ate breakfast (not included) each morning in the Cafe. I think we were charmed by the atmosphere and seduced by Jo's baked goods in her Cafe. We ended up buying lemon cake, carrot cake, scones, caramel bars and more to sustain us on the road as we left. We would definitely stay here again.
