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.

Just back from one night stay in Tierneys and glad it was only for one night. The double room should be a single and would be a small one at that. Double bed was shoved against the wall and no space for a bedside table on either side. Wardrobe had no doors. TV was on top of the wardrobe so... More

While truly cute and center of it all, be aware that the street noise hours on til 2 am! The steps would hinder you if any medical issues and as they note it is only a B NOT A B& B! The room was small but nice and comfortable. Very close to everything.

Small rooms but very clean and tidy and comfortable. Family owned business - great people, would do anything for you. In the heart of Kinsale so right in the middle of the hussel and bussel - great for single people like myself!

Very small money making adventure packed into the space above a resteraunt. Located bang in the middle of town (bad for parking and transferring your luggage) Not a good place to stay; the centre of town was noisy, we were woken by late night drinkers singing in the street in the early hours of the morning. Then about 3 am... More
