A quick lunch as just arrived in kinsale. A club sandwich and chicken Caesar salad washed down with the local delicacy "Murphy's" an excellent way to start our short break. Service and food were good. We were in bar area so we have not tried the restaurant or the accommodation but would definitely recommend for lunch.

Actons is a gorgeous hotel, located on the waterfront. Walking distance to everything. The room was perfect with a large bathroom and bottled water, kettle, hair dryer etc. They had provided a fan also. Breakfast was lovely, a really large selection. Super helpful staff.

The Actons Hotel gave us a room upgrade and made sure that we had a beautiful water front room for the two days of our trip that we were in Kinsale during our wedding anniversary trip to Ireland. It was lovely and they were so nice. The hotel is in a great location to walk to all of the sites... More

Wish we could have stayed more than one night. We loved our rooms and the beautiful setting on the waterfront, in walking distance to the historic town with its shops and restaurants. The front desk staff was welcoming as well.

Clean, central, lovely view of harbour, excellent leisure centre, great breakfast with huge variety, comfortable beds. What it does it does well. I prefer a hotel with a more personal touch but all-round Acton's is very good.

Arrived at the Actons and found the hotel to be in a great location for walking to most things. We had a room with a really nice view of the harbor. The location is so close to the downtown area, with the shops, restaurants, bars, etc. Also, we walked to Charles Fort, which might be too far for some, but... More
