After a great start to our tour of Ireland this property left us wanting a bit more. The location is beautiful - right at the harbor, but something seems to be missing. We traveled with 3 other couples and each had a junior suite, which frankly is a must here I'd say. The suites are large and have nice views. Bathrooms are large and nicely appointed. Service was OK -- I don't know if they were just busy or if jaded from the volume of tourists. Breakfast is included and very good -- try to get a table near or at the window for a great morning view. Absolutely DO NOT MISS a meal at Fishy Fishy. That absolutely was the best dinner of our entire trip. Reservations are a must because it is hopping. There is no fitness center at the hotel -- it's at its sister property, Acton Hotel, a short walk down the street. That was a bit disappointing but the fact that our boys played golf at Old Head made up for it. The town of Kinsale is very quaint and there is a terrifc shop, Grandma's Bottom Drawer, that is not to be missed if you like lace and/or cashmere. Two of us found cashmere ponchos that we bought and love.
