My wife and I ate here with two other couples and everyone raved about the food. The service was very good and the atmosphere also very good. They also have a very nice memorial to the 911 attack in the U.S. which was very much appreciated.

Best seafood chowder we had in Ireland. A menu with a variety that has something for everyone. First time was so good we went back for lunch two days later.

A Monday night in Kinsale was quiet but we found a delicious meal. The pumpkin soup was divine as well as the baked cod with butternut rissoto. The Guinness stew was tender and perfect for a cold November night.

We stayed at the White House and each morning were served a wonderful breakfast. We also ate dinner there one evening and the menu gave us many inviting choices, we so enjoyed the meal. Staff was very attentive.

Friends from Canada had recommended this restaurant and we certainly enjoyed our meals. The bread at the White House was the best I had in Ireland and my meal was delicious. My travelling companions were also happy with their dinners.

Thank Maggie M
