We had a very nice room that had a roomy en suite . A nice parlor with fireplace that was lit and a decor surrounded by candles. Our hostess was very helpful with suggestions for guided tours as well as walking on our own and fantastic places to eat.

Maeve is a delightful hostess with a...

I stayed in Kinsale for three days on a golf vacation. The Blindgate house was awesome - excellent order from the menu breakfast (try the salmon and eggs), great bedding, excellent service and close access to town. As a runner I enjoyed the 5K run to the old Fort and back.
