“The best B&B in ireland”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 9, 2013

We stayed for 3 night in Insiara b&b and it was the best 3 nights of our holiday! The b&b is spotless and very comfortable; and the breakfast was amazing. It is in a perfect location for visiting kinsale and west cork. I would highly recommend the b&b!

Excellent start of our cycletrip through the south-west of Ireland. Nearby the Airport of Cork, warm welcome, nice, comfortable room and (indeed!) Eileen's homemade bread is the best you can find! Thank you!

We have stayed at 6 different B & B's in Ireland, and this was definitely the best. Everything was more than satisfactory - we can't think of anything to improve! John and Eileen are so pleasant and friendly and very considerate. The house is lovely, our room was VERY spacious and light, the shower great, the bed extremely comfortable, and the breakfast terrific. We chose this B & B because we had a morning flight out of Cork, and it is so close to the airport (less than 10 minutes), and VERY easy to get there. It was a perfect ending to our week in Ireland, and if we can get back to ireland again (hopefully next year), we will definitely stay here again. We absolutely and unreservedly recommend Insiara B & B!!

We stayed at Insiara for one night in October 2012. John & Eileen were so very nice; provided me a gluten-free breakfast. When planning a trip to Cork Ireland this is the place to stay. I defiantly recommend this B&B.

John and Eileen are the absolute the best. Wonderful, absolutely a wonderful place to stay and so warm. Do the Irish breakfast and put aside reluctance to do the puddings. Do pay attention to the turn off if you go to Kinsale.

I stayed at Insiara B&B for two nights on a recent set dancing holiday in Ireland and only wish I'd been able to stay longer. What a gorgeous B&B, in a location that's both beautiful and handy for travelling to all parts of Cork, with two of the loveliest hosts you could ever meet! John and Eileen went out of their way to make my visit to Ballinhassig as wonderful as possible. Unbeknownst to me, John even contacted a set dancing friend of theirs so that I was warmly welcomed as I arrived at the Ballinhassig ceili and I had my first dancing partner for the night lined up! I'm already looking forward to my next visit to Insiara B&B. I'm not sure when it will be, but it will definitely be for longer!

Our last night in Ireland we stayed at Insiara b&b.
Eileen and John were very welcoming, friendly and helpful.
The welcome, the accomodation, the breakfast, the location, ... it was all excellent!
A place to remember when we visit Ireland again.

Eileen and John, thank you for so much kindness!
