First, we loved being in Kinsale so this hotel was just part of our great experience with the city. Our room was huge with a beautiful view of the harbor. We also had a huge bathroom with full sized tub. The shower stall was big, not the tube kind that is so small you can't bend over. And, there was plenty of space on the bathroom counter to spread out the toiletries in my bag. The hotel is not as new as some but very clean and comfortable.
Breakfast was plentiful and the dining room has views of the harbor. The lobby is small but we didn't really stay there much. We did have a late lunch in the dining room that was very nice.
Our only negative comment is that there was no top sheet on the bed. This was the second hotel in a row that didn't provide one so I think it might be an American custom but not European. Otherwise, we certainly enjoyed Kinsale and this hotel.
