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

This B&B was just like a home from home, and probably closer to a mini 5 star hotel than a B&B, but still retaining that 'homely' feel. The whole place was immaculately clean, our room, was very clean and spacious, with a very comfortable bed and a stunning bathroom. All of the facilities we could ever need were there, and... More

We were out on a family trip of 25 days to Europe. We stayed in many B&B's but Rivermount House had the warmth of a house but facilities matching 7 star hotels. The rooms are beautifully done up and their cute dog was always a source of entertainment. I really recommend this to all people...

The Rivermount House B&B is a very beautiful house in a quiet location. The beds are comfortable and the room and bathroom is spacious. They cater for families as well. I think that this would be a great place for a couple or family spending a few nights in the area. Kinsale is only a 10 minute drive away. For... More
