We came across this location by accident as we were walking past the back entrance where some people were sitting outside in a small patio area. We were not disappointed with the menu choice, the quality of the food, which is supplied in plentiful amount. The service was exceptionally friendly. We exited by the front entrance!

We ate there 2 weeks ago as a family of four and the food was very good. Great specials and very tasty dishes. The service team is very welcoming and accommodating. A great experience. One of the best meal in Kinsale.

Stayed for 1 night on July 3. We received a warm welcome on arrival and advice on where to go, what to see. Our room was huge, very bright and clean overlooking the street. Down side of this was street noise during the night. Breakfast was good with a good choice on offer. Overall I was happy with our stay... More

Popped in for a coffee, but the table next to us were having an early lunch, it smelled so good. We ordered the potato and white onion soup. Pleasant young girl served us, the soup was just lovely and loads of Brown Bread for €4.85. Clean and comfortable.

We came to the White House following the existing advices on Trip Advisor. We received a warm welcome and were kindly served. I started with a delicious seafood chowder and the 2 other of us went on a perfect beer battered haddock. A little imperfection with a good but definitely too salty beef stew. A kind final touch : two... More

Our guide recommended Kitty O'Shea's, next door. But Kitty's was loud and crowded (no doubt due to the recommendation), so we wandered to The White House, next door, and was very pleasantly surprised by a very nice waitstaff and very good food. I had the tuna salad sandwich and it was quite yummy. Skip the recommended place, and go to... More

Ate a very delicious chicken, corn, and leek soup! Hit the spot on a rainy day after much walking and sightseeing. My husband enjoyed his sandwich as well with an icy cold pint. Very crowded due to a televised Irish soccer game match! Fun to watch.

This place was recommended by our guide so we gave it a shot and have to say the club sandwich was very good however the Mussels were fantastic. A huge amount of them in the bowl would get them again in a second. Located right in middle of the little shopping area in Kinsale
