Beautiful views and excellent decor. This B&B is just a few miles beyond Kinsale and provides a surprisingly high standard of accommodation. Modern furniture and facilities throughout - although the wonky toilet seat could do with a fix.

A rural location with amazing views across open country down to the river, the rooms are not large, but nicely equipped including excellent beds. Bathrooms were clean and modern with good towels. Breakfast was the best we experienced in Ireland with bacon and pancakes being a popular highlight. The owners were extremely friendly and helpful, this is a delightful place... More

Loved Kinsale, it's people and restaurants. Don't miss the walking tour which is a highlight. We really enjoyed the B&B. I had stayed there briefly before some years ago, but promised myself I would come back. Rivermount was a bit out of town - which suited us - and we were really well looked after there. Breakfast and the pancakes... More

Since this B&B is a relatively new house and recently redecorated, it does not offer the charm of older B&Bs. However the place has a fantastic view up high overlooking Kinsale and is unbelievably clean and comfortable. The hostess has gone to great effort to provide everything needed. Her linen napkins at breakfast are typical of the way she handles... More

Stayed for one night at the start of the Wild Atlantic way and we were really pleased. It's like staying in someone's home and they have not cut any corners. Everything is to a high standard and the rooms although small are impeccably clean and rather trendy. Great linen and towels. Both Claire and Martin were friendly and welcoming and... More

Claire the owner is delightful, very helpful with suggestions and great with directions. Our room was clean with individual beds mine was OK, my wife's bed sagged and she was not happy and the linens were so so. You do get plenty of towels. Tea was served all day and night always with cookies and sometimes nice muffins too. The... More

Unlike some of the other B&Bs in Ireland, the Rivermount House is closer to a true B&B in my opinion. By this I mean, it's smaller (about 6 rooms) and you actually have the feeling of staying in somebody's house. The quiet location is just outside of Kinsale (not walking distance!) and offers stunning views. Our room was spacious and... More

We recently stayed in rivermount for a hen party, Claire was so accomadating I would highly recommend this place! Beautiful scenery, all bedrooms are different it's more of a boutique hotel! Yummy pancakes for breakfast we will definitely be back again, it's like a home away from home!

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
