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

The location of this B&B is hard to surpass. Many of the rooms look out to the river. John is a very accommodating host providing us with useful information about the area, places to visit and places to eat. We had a very enjoyable stay and if we're ever back in Kinsale, we will certainly stay at the Rocklands House... More

We really enjoyed our stay here. Our room was well-appointed. Our host John was personable, friendly and very helpful, giving us tips and suggestions for our tour. The sitting room has large windows overlooking the river with spectacular views. Breakfast was very good. A very pleasant experience all round, and I highly recommend it.

This is a great B&B. John the owner is very accommodating and helpful. We had a lovely room overlooking the garden with a small balcony to look out on the harbor. Great views as it sits high on the hill. Not far from town, and Kinsale is one of our favorite places we visited on our Ireland vacation. I would... More
