Kinsale may have been the favorite town we visted and Actons' harborside location provides ready walking access to the town. The facade of the hotel looks unchanged since it was built in the '40s. The common areas are nicely done. Staff is helpful and friendly. Hallways and rooms feel a bit dated, but are clean and comfortable. (Our rooms may... More

This is a modern hotel at the docks in Kinsale. Just three or so blocks from downtown. The hotel staff were very nice, but can't get lunch before noon in Kinsale! Card Entry. Wi Fi is good in rooms. Food was good. Modified buffet with menu for main breakfast serving. We were there during the regatta - got to have... More

The staff really make this wonderful hotel experience - especially the receptionists, who are always on hand for useful information and a friendly smile. The food is top class and the beds are simply to die for - the eggs benedict in particular. Acton's has full leisure facilities; including a gym, 15m pool, jacuzzi, hot tub, sauna and steam room....

Firstly one of us ordered a " Hendrix" gin which costs circa €10 & is supposed to be served in a LARGE glass with crushed ice & cucumber, this was requested but bar person had no idea &... More

I recently stayed at Actons having found it through an accommodation search engine. Wasn't sure what to expect, but on arrival our room was ready with amazing views over the harbour. Check-in was fast and easy even though we arrived at a very busy point in time. The room was spotless, very comfortable and lovely ensuite and room amenities. We... More

We stayed at Actons in early August, peak of season. We loved how it was easy to walk to the town of Kinsale, along the harbor. Great restaurants are all nearby, such as The Steakhouse for beef and Dino's for Fish and Chips. The hotel itself is very well kept, the rooms clean, and the staff attentive. Our room overlooked...

This was our second time to stay in Actons Hotel and the only downside was we were only here for one night this time. This is a quality place to stay mixing the important elements of relaxation, attention to detail & a stellar breakfast. The rooms are a good size & the beds are very comfortable. The bedroom and en... More

They remodeled but with many cheap fixtures lacking any room to put things in the bathroom. The buffet breakfast ok. Yogurt, sweet rolls, too sweet waffles, fruit not great. I don't like watermelon w/ seeds for breakfast or syrup sweet apricots. Bed not great, only good. Nice to have a parking lot right in front. We never moved the car,... More

Booked this hotel for a week to celebrate our wedding anniversary and my husband's birthday after reading the reviews. Hotel itself is lovely, beds are super comfy, it's clean, location is very central & free parking but was let down by the rudeness of the staff. They didn't really acknowledge we were even there. I would've thought they'd have acknowledged... More
