We needed accommodation in the centre of Kinvara and this is certainly the choice if looking for that, it's a large bed and breakfast bordering on small hotel. Standard is good for bed and breakfast. Not much of a personal touch but it's too large a business for that. I found it was the best Kinvara had to offer, friendly... More

Myself & my husband spend a night at Kinvara Guest House last week and found it to be a lovely place to stay. It is located right in the heart of the village, and within an easy walk of the restaurants, pubs, the quay, and the castle. Free car parking is available right outside the guesthouse. There is a lift... More

Situated in the city square the Kinvara Guesthouse is likely the cleanest property we've ever lodged. The rooms are typical European (smallish) but more than adequate for travelers. There is a family lounge on the 1st floor immediately adjacent to the breakfast dining area (breakfast included). Surprisingly this two story property had an elevator to avoid dragging suitcases up flights... More

My mother and I stayed one night at this place. When we came there and saw it from the outside it looked like any other guesthouse. But when we got the key to our room and started to walk in the corridores, we realised that this place was much bigger than we thought. Our room was spacious, clean and seemed... More

Picked this hotel based upon positive reviews and was not disappointed. Clean, big room (family - double and two twins). Great location in sweet seaside town. Free breakfast (full Irish and continental buffet). For the money it was great and we liked the town. The gentleman at the desk was also super helpful in planning our Burren exploration.

My husband and I spent just one night at this fabulous hotel. We received a warm welcome from the staff. Our room was spacious and just gorgeously decorated. Breakfast was plentiful and tasty. Location was great too. We spent the evening in one of the 10 local pubs where musicians were playing live music. Just lovely! Highly recommended.

The room was nice and clean. There was an issue with the bread served at the breakfast which wasn't fresh (see picture). I highlighted this issue to the waiter who changed the basket of bread straight away. I think this may have been an isolated incident which I believe is not the normal in this guest house as everything else... More

This place was an unexpected gem! Great value, especially for families, large room and comfy beds. Very clean and tidy and made a perfect base for our stay. You could easily pass the place by but once inside it has been decorated to a high standard and I couldn't fault it. Friendly and helpful staff too.
