Stayed here for one night during our recent visit to Ireland. A very nice accommodation, though it felt more like a small hotel than a B&B.The room was very pleasant and reasonable roomy, and the bed comfortable. Breakfast was the true highlight of our stay, though. The cold buffet was outstanding, with fresh fruit, granola and excellent cheese and cold... More

This guest house is situated up the hill from the main town so is quiet in the evenings. Purpose built and everything in really good order. Lovely breakfast and nothing is to much trouble for Maeve and her team. A great and comfortable centre for exploring this beautiful area of Ireland.

We booked the Blind Gate House in Kinsale, Ireland based on excellent previous reviews. It is not what people said. Room is stuffy, no ventilation, TV was terrible (no volume, ringing noise on all channels, bad picture, and they refused to do anything about it). Room has no character, felt like a nursing home. Carpet in entranceway and stairs very... More

Kinsale is a little tough to navigate around with small roads and houses stacked up a hill. Blindgate house a little hidden up one of these roads with a gravel parking lot was very clean with nice amenities. The room was cozy and breakfast was delicious with choice of full Irish breakfast ( one fried egg, black and white pudding,... More

Clean, quiet away from the hubub of town, free parking, comfortable beds, fantastic breakfast. Maeve and the staff were very helpful with questions we had about the area. Check in and check out were seamless. The short walk up and down the hill to town was no problem and gave us a way to stretch our legs a bit and... More

Maeve was a delight. She was personable and informative not only about Kinsale but about our next stop as well going above and beyond getting restaurant information for us. Maeve was also kind to make restaurant reservations for us in Kinsale. The rooms were clean and comfortable and quite roomy. I would stay here again. Great location and a short... More

We've stayed at Blindgate many times over the years. Lovely room, great size and nicely decorated. Breakfast is delicious - delicious fresh fruit, brown bread and hot breakfast cooked to order. Plenty of Parking (unusual in kinsale). Maeve is friendly and gives great suggestions/tips on restaurants. Would recommend to friends and will stay there again.
