“You must have a strong back”
Reviewed August 13, 2008

Situated in an ideal spot for anyone with limited mobility as it is flat and central to the centre of Kinsale. It also has public car parking right at the back of the property and you can bring your luggage in through the back door.

On the corkguide website many facilities were listed but they were extremely cramped into the double room at the back of the property, to the degree that it was difficult to move around.

However, the bathroom was the main problem the hand basin was the size of an ashtray, the toilet was in such an awkward position with not enough room between the toilet and either of the two walls that were only a few inches away. The biggest problem was that the toilet seat was of such poor quality that when you sit on it you are immediately jolted with such force that my back was painful for 2 weeks afterwards.

The problem was reported to the manager but she seemed extremely suprised! I expect all other visitors must have had very strong backs and be under 5ft tall!

  • Liked — A central position with no hills or inclines for people with limited mobility
