Just can't say enough about this B&B. David greeted us with freshly baked scones and tea or coffee. Then, he showed us to our detached garden apartment with its own patio overlooking the Bendon River. We were only there for one night so didn't have a chance to take advantage of the full kitchen (including clothes washer). The main house... More

My husband and I have been traveling around Ireland, having a lovely time. Last night we stayed at Rocklands, and I have to say it's one of the best B&B's we have ever stayed in- maybe even THE best! The cottage we stayed in was fully outfitted for extended stays, with a well-supplied kitchen, even had a washer/dryer. More than... More

Lovely place to stay in Kinsale. A bit of a walk downtown but not bad, worth it to be at such a quiet location with a stunning view of the bay. Room was nice, good breakfast, great hosts. One of our favorite stays during the trip. Highly suggest driving to Charles Fort, that was another highlight.

Two couples, from the UK went on a golfing holiday to Ireland in early July and found this gem of a B & B in Kinsake overlooking the most beautiful bay. John, the owner was a sheer delight and most helpful on the tourism front as well as a whizz at making omelettes. Couldn't do enough to make our stay... More

I stayed here with a friend recently and we had a great time. We had a wonderful adventure getting there, up and down the windy hills of Kinsale, and when we saw the drive down to the house we knew we were going somewhere magical. The house is in a beautiful setting with fantastic views. It is a nice walk... More

My daughter and I were so intrigued by the beautiful winding driveway that looked like we were headed into a forest. The owner, John, is such a great host. He is welcoming and accommodating. He makes you feel right at home. Our room had a beautiful view of the lake and hills. The bed was comfortable although a little on... More

We were intrigued by the drive up and down the windy small roads, and the payoff was intense immediately when we saw the gate. This place is enchanting! John was incredible, friendly, and just a fantastic host. We LOVED our stay here. It felt like a home hug, from the smell of food to the furnishings, everything was just amazing.... More

I am just back from visiting Kinsale and was delighted with our night's stay at Rocklands House. We would have loved to stay longer but Rocklands was fully booked and I understand why. John and his wife are lovely accommodating people. For those who love to find out a bit of history about Kinsale and the Wild Atlantic Way ,... More

My wife and I were so taken with the owner John and his beautiful dog Poppy we ended up staying four nights. If your going to make a booking request the guest house. It's private and you feel like you have your own cottage away from the main house. John made us feel very welcomed and would on occasion invite... More
