The Sea Gull, run by Mary O'Neill, is an interesting home perched on the hill next to Desmond Castle. The home is old-fashioned, clean, quite pretty inside, and breakfast is excellent. Mary runs the Tap Tavern, a friendly neighbourhood pub, just down the hill from the B& B and you may go by the pub to pick up the key....

When we arrived a note appeared on the door saying that Mary was at the pub she owns down the street, Tap Tavern. We easily found her, she greeted us with a smile and the keys. The B&B has a distinctive smell when you walk in the door but as usual your nose gets used to it. The décor is...

We visited with hostess, Mary for three nights and had a great time. She was most accommodating and helpful. Our room was comfortable and clean and the breakfasts were good. Easy walking to everything in Kinsale. Parking was not easy-we just had to find a place as close as possible.

We had a big family reunion/vacation in the southern part of the Republic in August 2012 and we stayed in Kinsale for two nights. The location of the Seagull Guest House was absolutely perfect: we could walk everywhere and yet the B&B was just a little up the hill so it was nice and quiet. Mary was a wonderfully warm...

A delightful place to stay in the heart of Kinsale. The rooms are large enough for two, clean, the bathrooms are modern and the beds are very comfortable. The breakfast that was served was excellent. Mary is a wonderful host and very helpful and an interesting person to visit with. The cost of the rooms is reasonable. As well, to...

Our family of 6 occupied 3 rooms in Mary O'Neill's B&B last week & enjoyed it thoroughly! Contrary to past reviews, it was clean & very well-kept. Mary has someone who helps her clean, though she cooked our delicious Irish breakfast herself. Sea Gull House is charming, a true home with photos & momentos of the O'Neill family life. It...

Ms. Mary took us in last minute with no problems. She is a lovely lil elderly lady that is 4th generation of Kinsale. They own the local Tap Tavern just down the hill from the Sea Gull House B&B. They B&B is also located next door to the Desmond Castle which made it easy to find at night after walking...

We stayed at the Seagull House on Rick Steeves book recommendation. This is a cute B&B that reminded me of what my Irish grandmother's home used to look like. Mary is adorable and generous and kind. The rooms are clean and small, but comfortable. We told her that our toilet wasn't working and she ran up the stairs to fix...

I had read the reviews prior, so I was prepared for the cold - no problems there. Mary was in The Tap Tavern as expected and was as sweet as could be. Be aware that "street parking" is hard to find - you might have to park a block or so away from the house. My biggest problem was the...
