We absolutely loved our stay at Cloisters. Orla and Aileen are wonderful hosts and have great recommendations for places to see, dine and enjoy in beautiful Kinsale. Our room was perfect, plenty of space, comfortable bed and a very large bathroom which was spotlessly clean. The homemade breakfast was delicious and you could choose from a large Irish breakfast to...

Friendly hosts, Very clean. Charming rooms, on smaller side but I loved it. Beautifully decorated. Good bed. I could hear the snoring from the next room but had noise cancellation headphones. Wonderful breakfast. Highly recommend. Quiet location. Was here in October when the Jazz Festival was in town - amazing.

My husband and I spent 3 wonderful nights here whilst exploring Kinsale and surrounds. Orla and Aileen were perfect hosts, the breakfasts were delicious and the ensuite room clean, spacious and very attractively decorated.Right in the heart of Kinsale we left the car parked and walked. Thank you for your wonderful hospitality.

Rooms felt very clean. I always check mattress covers and mattress and they were clean and in good condition. A little bit of mold in bathroom (just a warning if you have severe allergies). The room was very spacious, beds very comfortable. The hosts were very welcoming and helpful. Orla gave wonderful suggestions on where to eat. She even gave...

If you haven't been to Kinsale yet and look on a map where the Cloisters B & B is you would swear it would be noisy by its close proximity to the downtown area. You would be wrong. It is extremely quiet both inside and outside the inn. The breakfasts were excellent!! Orla and Aileen were so helpful for directions...

We had one night to stay in Kinsale and luckily found this B&B through the Rick Steves travel guide. When we arrived the smell of bread baking filled the house and made even the first contact so inviting! The room was spacious and spotless. Kinsale is a town that is easy to walk. Orla, the inn keeper, gave us an...

What a pair... Orla and Aileen make you feel like family. When we arrived Orla came out to the car and offered to assist with luggage. Our room was immaculate and nicely appointed. They provided us with great information about the town and places to visit. One could not imagine a more welcoming atmosphere. Breakfast was lovely and we sat...

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...

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...

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...
