Based on the pictures we achieved something much nicer but this is more like a private room hostel. Floors are sticky and it's right by loud bars. Room was clean and had the basics but be prepared for the bare minimum and uncomfortable beds that you can feel the springs. If you just want the basics then this is your... More

Ok.. So the rooms are small. But they are clean, comfortable and well maintained. Tierneys Guest house is slap bang in the middle of Kinsale, surrounded by fine eating establishments, wine bars & pubs. (No need for taxi's here...). Tierneys do not provide breakfast, but are located besides the best breakfast café in Ireland (The Lemon Leaf if I recall... More

The expression "you get what you pay for" really applies here. It is not expensive but it's not perfect. Positives: friendly and helpful staff and a comfy bed. Very central location in Kinsale and short distance walkable to everywhere in the town. Negatives: cold shower at all times and very noisy from the street outside at all times.

Tierney's Guest House was am ideal location for us literally in the midst of everything we wanted to see (historical attractions, pubs, restaurants, shops were all just steps away...) We got a top floor room with ensuite bathroom, a very comfortable bed, opening window/skylight, coffee/tea making facilities, high speed wifi, etc. and everything was clean & tidy. The staff were...

The staff were very helpful. A nice little guest house with an excellent central location. The only thing that spoilt our stay here was the noise from the street in front with the early morning deliveries, even with the window shut. I would request a room at the back next time.

This location is great as it's right in downtown Kinsale. Very small place - Dominick leaves his phone no. to call when you arrive and he does arrive very quickly. We requested two rooms with double bed in each but when we arrived, we had one room with two twin beds and the other a full bed. It was OK... More

We ended up here on a last-minute booking because it was the only availability in town. I see why. The twin beds were teeny-tiny and dreadfully uncomfortable; the room was so small there was nowhere to set our bags; the bathroom smelled like cat pee; and they gave us used soap (a recurring theme, if you've read my other reviews)....

In the heart of the resort area of Kinsale, this guest house provides easy access to the best the town has to offer. Pubs, restaurants, shopping are all minutes away... The rooms are basic, clean, but do not offer great comfort. They do provide a kettle and tea/coffee service in the room. The young man who checked us in basically... More

Although Tierneys has had a refurbishment in recent years, the service has not. We booked 2 months in advance and requested 2 of their larger rooms as we were familiar with the size of the rooms and some are very small. Upon calling to confirm our reservations prior to arrival, there was no record of our booking. The receptionist finally... More

Your right in the heart of everything here. Right outside your Window if you're to the front can be noisy until the small hours at the weekend. Room was nice and cosy but a bit on the small side. Bed was comfortable . Breakfast was lovely. Nice little Spot to visit.
