“Beautiful Kinvara”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 2, 2013

Kinvara is a wonderful town and features a beautiful scenic harbour and castle. We were extremely blessed with fantastic weather for the whole week, temperature reached 30 degrees one of our days. Our bed and breakfast was clean and modern. The Guesthouse has been modernised in the last three years and is being still having further touches added to it. The lounge area had t.v and Internet facilities although Internet was available in all rooms. The proprietor and staff were most helpful and welcoming.

Room Tip: If you have a room at the back of the guesthouse facing the car park, you may be woken up by deliver...

We were on a driving tour of Ireland and had stayed in a castle hotel the night before. We did not have high expectations for Kinvara Guesthouse (how can you compete with a castle?). We were very pleasantly surprised. The room was small but very clean, very modern in decor. It was quiet and the bed was comfortable. It was easy to find within the town of Kinvara, and the staff was friendly and helpful. There was a grocery just around the corner, which was handy at that stage of our trip. Don't be nervous about booking this hotel just because it's a good value. You, too, will be pleasantly surprised.

Lovely modern Guesthouse. def. worth 4* . No Flowery duvets and patterned carpets!!. this is as good if not better than a Hotel. Wi Fi available and baby sitting services. The room and bathroom were a great size, The breakfast was lovely and everyone was so friendly. Kinvara is. a pretty place with lots of cute Irish Pubs and restaurants. we tried the italian one which was very nice .the village is very clean and all the houses and bars freshly painted. well worth a visit.

Room Tip: all the rooms are good

My husband, adult daughter and I spent two nights at the Guesthouse last week and had a wonderful stay. Everything was perfect, except the bed pillows which were unfortunately hard and flat. The room we had was very large and spotlessly clean. The water pressure in the shower was delightful and the Irish breakfast delicious. The location is ideal for exploring western Ireland and totally local instead of touristy. We did a little pub hopping (everything in walking distance) and shared some great chats with several locals. We ate both nights at the Pier Head and had outstanding meals and service.

Despite our reservation that too many great reviews will turn Kinvara into a tour bus magnet, we highly recommend a stay in Kinvara at the Kinvara Guesthouse!

Room Tip: Ask for a room with an ocean view!

This is an exceptional B&B. The rooms, breakfast, cleanliness, every comfort. To top it off there is a wide variety of restaurants in the village and we enjoyed an excellent meal at Keoghs across the street. We will return to this beautiful place

Room Tip: I think every room is a good here

In the center of a sweet village of kinvara, Ireland is this guesthouse. Quiet, clean, nice rooms with good towels and plenty of hot water! Sounds silly but some places don't have either of those items! We had a quiet night sleep after a fun pub dinner right across the street. A beautiful breakfast the next morning and we were off again. Delightful stay. Would recommend.

We spent one night in this delightful guesthouse while travelling along the west coast. The entire house is most tastefully decorated and is immaculately clean. Our room too was very much to our satisfaction, great shower and comfortable beds. A full Irish breakfast (yummy) set us off for the day. We most definitely recommend this guesthouse, it is ideally situated to visit the Burren, Galway Bay and the Cliffs of Moher and is in a picturesque little fishing village that is a delight in its own right.
