This B & B is very convenient to town; is clean; no parking. There is no wifi, although readily available in many places in town. Do not expect the traditional B & B breakfast - no cereal, no yogurt, no brown bread - scrambled eggs, toast, sausage, rashers, tomato half. Next time would look elsewhere.

Mary, our host was a lovely lady but the accommodation was poor. There was no wifi, no tea/coffee making facilities and no parking. The room was adequate but the general feel of the place was tired with no extras eg tissues. Breakfast was pleasant with juice, tea and cooked breakfast of scambled egg, sausage, bacon and half a tomato but... More

The Gull House is located in a perfect location, all of Kinsale's attractions are just steps from the door. Staying with Mary is just like visiting your Grandmothers house, Mary greets you with a warm smile, feeds you a hearty breakfast and assures that your stay is enjoyable.

We really enjoyed our stay at the Sea Gull House. Mary was helpful and gave us a warm greeting. The location was perfect for walking into town every night for dinner. It is a nice quiet homey place to stay. We really enjoyed the Ghost tour which starts out of her bar the Tap Tavern, great fun! We highly recommend... More

My daughter and I stayed at this inn while visiting Kinsale. The owner, Mary O'Neil was so delightful!! Our room was clean and comfortable and located not far from any place we wanted to visit in town. We enjoyed our stay at this B & B.

Kinsale is not to be missed. The Sea Gull is a nice quiet location. We arrived very late our first night which is a no-no. Breakfast was perfectly fine. The rooms are dated but clean and comfortable. Check out day Mary was vacuuming the room while we were still packing up which we did not appreciate.

Thoroughly enjoyed our two-night stay here. Mary was delightful and attentive, serving up a great full Irish breakfast. A basic, no frills room which was clean and made up each day. There was no tv or wifi. We kept our car parked in a free lot about three minutes away the whole time we were in Kinsale and got around... More

I spent two nights at the Sea Gull House B&B in Kinsale, Ireland. Mary was a gracious hostess and great bartender. The rooms are suitable, the location is great, and Mary is delightful. Make sure you go have a few pints in The Tap Tavern which she also owns and tends bar with her son Brian. My bartender Pat was... More

It was ok. Mary was nice but very no-nonsense. The location was great, it was close to everything in town. The rooms were simple but very clean. Breakfast was very typical and hearty. I will come back since the location is hard to beat The town was lovely!
