Orla and Eileen are delightful ladies who take great pride in their home and establishment. Theirs was the highlight stay of our 15 day UK/Ireland adventure. Very roomy, very comfortable bed, not on a busy street nor next to a bar/restaurant. Our tub shower was a palace compared to many of the matchbook showers of other B&B's. If you stay... More

We can't say enough about this wonderful B&B. It just was the ultimate in a B&B experience. Orla and Aileen catered to us from the time they opened their door to the day we left. We were not allowed to carry our luggage up to our room or down! Our room was small but compact (we're small people so we... More

We were welcomed most warmly by Orla and Aileen and immediately felt at home. Our room was small but perfectly formed in every way. We were given a map and the ladies told us about a number of restaurants in Kinsale and also advised us on what we could do - all excellent advice! The bed was divinely comfortable and... More

If you are lucky enough to book a room at the Cloister's, you're in for a treat. The rooms are beautifully decorated and spotless, the breakfast delicious - homemade breads, fruit, eggs ... The location is central, but not at all noisy. The owners Aileen and Orlan are delightful - very helpful, pleasant, and just really nice people. This was... More

This was an excellent find for us. We loved Kinsale - so charming -- and our one night/morning at Cloisters added to our enjoyment. Orla and Aileen greeted us and got right into opening the little town's map and highlighting things to do, great places to eat, etc. It's a very short walk down to the main streets and the... More

The location was perfect - right in town but not too close to the noisy bars. Our triple room was big and comfortable for the three of us. We loved the breakfast - plenty of vegetarian options. I had french toast both days and it was delicious.We enjoyed talking to the other guests at breakfast. We were able to park... More

Top town and top B&B! The hosts Orla and Aileen are so helpful, accommodating, and friendly, so much so that they ran to find us in the town when we left something behind in our room! The rumour is that Cloisters has the most comfortable beds in Ireland and I can attest that this is true!! Breakfast was a delight... More

We stayed at 5 different B&B's throughout the course of our week holiday & Cloisters was our favorite. The location was perfect, right in the middle of Kinsale, the owners were friendly and knowledgable and the B&B itself was fantastic. Our room was decently sized, comfortable and well-appointed. The bathroom was standard and had great water pressure and the room... More

This BnB is like a model, for other BnBs to aspire to. Easily the best place we stayed on our 9 night tour of Ireland. Lovely hosts who were friendly and welcoming and gave you just enough information and help without being overbearing. Lovely, newly decorated rooms with all the facilities you'd want. Tea and coffee, huge bathroom, great Wi-Fi...... More
