“Perfect place to while away a cold wet afternoon.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 25, 2012

A lovely olde world pub, with a beautiful open fire and lots of nice private little spaces to sit and drink. We did not stay or eat here, but loved the atmosphere of the pub and found the service friendly.

“Warm Pub on a Cold Sunday!!”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 2, 2012

We were a large group visiting the area and went for a drink here. We were made to feel very welcome and were offered the menu, but we'd already eaten.
The pub was warm and friendly just what we expected.

Dropped into The Lord Kingsale for a pint on a recent day trip to Kinsale. Lovely little pub with plenty of character and friendly staff.

“Amazing venue and great service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 5, 2012

We just had a rehearsal dinner at The Lord Kinsale and had an amazing experience. The put us in the back private room, which was part of the old, original stone walled building. We also had a private bar to ourselves. The owners and service staff were very friendly and prompt. We had food and copious amounts of drinks. Overall, The Lord Kinsale made for an amazing experience that we will remember for years to come.

“Spend your money somewhere else”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed November 14, 2011

I've stayed in guesthouse, B&B, hotels all over Ireland and in many different countries but I've never had such a bad experience as The Lord Kingsale. I stayed there during the Jazz Festival and although the bar staff were professional, we were given a less than friendly welcome by the hostile owner who questioned and challenged our every (minor !) requests. We felt we were intruding on her rather that being valued guests. The rooms were small, grotty, old-fashioned and they permeated a musty smell. The breakfast was poor enough too. Take my advice and spend your money somewhere else. - Gusto
