Stayed here for one night, as wanted to go to Fishy, Fishy and see the town, and easy access to Cork airport. Again best to sort your cases so you only have to carry minimum, the stairs long and narrow. We were on the top floor, very small room and bathroom, but clean. Bed the worst we had during our...

**Note: No breakfast included** Really central to the town and rooms were very well furnished, clean and comfortable but the price was extremely expensive for what was included. Rooms are also very noisy being so close to the main street which wasn't ideal for families or people travelling early. Very disappointed with lack of breakfast, especially considering the prices.

Not the best place in Kinsale. Very small. Too many stairs if you have a lot of luggage. Nowhere to park and very loud if you want to sleep. Could not get out of Kinsale fast enough. They had internet, but very slow.

Great location on Main Street , small rooms , bed moved all over the place on the slightest movement . Shower very weak !! And the best was left to the end , noisy street with pub dwellers singing drunkenly till after 1am . Staff friendly but more of a hostel feel to the ambience than guesthouse .

Only stay here if you like listening to loud music all evening ( pub opposite) and shouting and yelling in the early hours of the morning. Our room looked onto the street and was very noisy indeed. The bed was comfortable but the bathroom was tiny and of course breakfast is not included so €73 seemed a high price. On... More

I was met by a charming lady in reception on check in who showed us to our room and recommened places to eat, drink and see in Kinsale. Rooms were basic but clean and bright. Bathroom was quite small and the sink was in the room, the shower was unreal good. We had breakfast downstairs the next morning, not sure... More

Pillow like rocks and all accompanied by high noise volumes from pub directly across the road. Staff only available to give keys and never seen again.No parking available unless you can find a space overnight on the very... More

Just a quick visit but room was comfy, a tad small. Close to restaurants and free parking. Internet was a bit spotty. No free breakfast but coffee and tea available in room. Host helpful and friendly and made reservations for us at foodie spot down the street

Although the room was on the small side, it was clean, quiet and cozy. The location of this guesthouse is in the heart of Kinsale, and is walking distance to all. We enjoyed our stay here and would book again.
