We had a wonderful stay at Friar's Lodge. It was a perfect base for exploring Kinsale and all its delights. We had a bit of trouble finding Friar's Lodge in the winding streets of Kinsale, but a couple of local people sent us in the right direction. Friar's Lodge is very comfortable and well located. Our room was quite cozy,... More

We have just stayed at the Friars lodge in Kinsale and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. We were welcomed and given great advice by the owner. The room was huge and very clean. The breakfast set us up for our long journey North.

We had their family suite, which slept four very comfortably. It was very spacious and right across from the building that houses the reception and breakfast, which was included. That was very nice as well -- with full service and several traditional, made-to-order hot meal options. The service was very nice, and we had good wifi service in our room.... More

Spent 2 nights here mainly because they are dog friendly and was not disappointed. Large spacious rooms, decent sized bathroom and a private car park at the back and a small green area at the top of the road, 2 mins walk away - ideal for four paws! Breakfasts were generous- buffet selection with a choice of a hot cooked... More

Convenient location for Kinsale. The room was huge, parking convenient and free. The breakfast was ok but nothing special. Good value for the area. While not the hotels doing, driving in Kinsale is a bit of a challenge as the roads seem to be even narrower that in other towns in Ireland.

We stayed here for 2 nights and had a great time in this relaxing town. The Lodge is just a couple of minutes walk from the town in a quiet area and has nice big ensuite bedrooms. The rooms are spotless with a big double bed, tea / coffee facilities, iron and table and chairs. In the main area there... More

There were seven of us traveling together and the Friar's Lodge was perfect. It was a late booking and they were able to accommodate all of us. The rooms were large, clean and the shower was great. It has on site parking which was a plus and the breakfast the next morning was both buffet and the hot food was... More

We spent one night here in June 2016. The room was large, breakfast was very good, and free parking was a big bonus. All of the roads in Kinsale seem to be even narrower and busier and curvier than in the rest of Ireland so we were happy to get the car parked and out of the way. I'd describe... More

Our party of 14 stayed here 2 nights. Great accommodations close to downtown. Breakfasts each day are wonderful. Lobby has complimentary sherry which is great and creates a little gathering spot. Staff was fantastic. Rooms were huge with a double bed and 2 singles.
