This bed and breakfast has much to offer.It's guest lounges are comfortable and relaxing and the views from them are stunning . Breakfasts are better than good and served by a professional team of staff .Our bedroom and bathroom ,although well decorated, were small .This was a real disappointment given the price paid for our room ..

We stayed for one night earlier this week. The house itself is beautifully decorated and very modern, the rooms upstairs were clean with plenty of hot water which is always good. The breakfast was delicious - there was great choice and I would highly recommend the pancakes - YUM! The only slight downside was that on booking.com, the house was... More

Stayed here 1 night. We never met the host or proprietor except for a kitchen worker who came out to take our cash. Booked it and held it with a credit card but when we got there was told only cash. Their cc machine was down. A little inconvenient as we had to run to the ATM and get cash.... More

Although this location is about a 10 minute drive from Kinsale, we found it to be a welcome respite from the busy activity level in town. The home is absolutely beautiful, the room was very clean and comfortable and the hosts were very welcoming. As someone who usually stays in hotels, this was the first time I felt very comfortable...

It was our first night in Ireland and we stayed one night at Rivermount B & B. Would recommend to anyone. It was the perfect place to stay, and exceeded our expectations. The breakfast was delicious and the hosts were like family. We found the people of Ireland to be so friendly and welcoming! The room was so clean, the... More

We spent a few nights in Rivermount house and thoroughly enjoyed the quality of the accommodation. The family room (or rooms as it is two distincts bedrooms with their own private room) is spacious with a large bathroom and the deco is really lovely. The breakfast menu is nice too. The only (really minor) down side would be the service... More

Had an excellent stay here over a long weekend. The B&B is just over 3km out of Kinsale on the other side of the Brandon river, but after our friends staying in Kinsale told us how noisy it could be, I was glad to be out of town in a quiet, tranquil, rural setting. Claire is a great host, and... More

Rivermount House is in a perfect location to access the lovely town of Kinsale and Old Head Golf. The home is beautiful, spotlessly clean and very welcoming. The beds are large and comfortable and the view of the river very peaceful. The hostess was very helpful and the breakfast very good, with choices from the traditional Irish breakfast to lighter...

Rivermount is a superbly appointed B&B with welcoming hosts and a gorgeous setting. It's just a few minutes from the Old Head of Kinsale (stop by at the pub on the way for some great chowder) and about 10mins out of Kinsale. We certainly had the best breakfast here of all our B&B stops. All that said, next time I... More

Built here in Rivermount House is an environment of family, homeliness and class. Located just outside the magnificent Kinsale, Rivermount is a true gem for all. Our stay here in Kinsale was made a dream come true by the hospitality of Claire and Martin, and the facilities here on offer - a beautiful room; kept to a standard of excellence.... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Overlooking the scenic river, Rivermount House completed a total upgrade and refurbishment in 2008. It offers four-star quality at affordable rates. We feature classic mahogany furniture, heavily embossed wall coverings and exquisite soft furnishings, which have all resulted in creating an ambiance of luxury comfort and style. With a classy polished marble foyer, this accommodation feels more like a boutique hotel but with the personal attention and traditional warmth of a B&B. ... more   less
