“Pleasant Surprise”
Reviewed June 12, 2014

We were unable to get into the B&BS that was recommended so we were referred to the Acton. What a pleasant surprise to be greeted by a wonderful staff, clean rooms, cozy bar and restaurant. Special thanks to Stephanie who was a lifesaver in getting us to our next stop and making special arrangements at the hotel. We will never forget her!

My boyfriend and I attended a friends wedding at Acton's recently and we had the most amazing time. The day of the wedding was fabulous and the hotel is right on the harbour. The view was exceptional. We had a three course meal and it was fantastic, I had beef as my main course and it was such a lovely meal followed by a trio of deserts and dancing. After the wedding we stayed an extra couple of days in the hotel and made full of use of the hotels leisure center. It was so relaxing and the staff were very helpful and friendly. I would highly recommend this hotel to anyone looking for a place to stay in kinsale.

Nice hotel. Service very good, staff always willing to help, especially Louise on the front desk (it makes such a difference). We had a family stay here of 4 generations and everyone was very happy with their stay. Worth spending the little extra to get a harbour view, About 5 mins walk to the centre of Kinsale which is lovely.

Room Tip: Worth paying the extra to get a harbour view.

Actons is in a great location overlooking the harbour. Car Park was reasonable size and we were able to park OK. Rooms were good size with a huge shower, and bed was really comfy.
Didn't eat in the Hotel restaurant on the evening but breakfast was very varied and good quality. If you're visiting Kinsale a harbour view room at the Actons is a must.

Best to book directly with the hotel, even if you have to telephone them. The hotel staff is excellent, very helpful and they go out of their way to provide excellent service. The web site is not user friendly and has "layers" of information making it hard to read when printed--like directions. The rooms were comfortable and clean and a bit on the small size. There is a elevator, but as the building is a combination of older buildings there is a raised portion in the hall with four steps. I was awakened VERY early by the thumping of suitcases down the stairs in the hall when members of a tour group didn't carry them down the steps but rather drug them down. I used the pool area and found it convenient. There are lockers to allow for changing in and out of street clothes. The pool was clean, but in need of a cleaning of built up calcium on the tiles--not at all dirty but it had that white calcium deposit on the tiles. The wi-fi was free but it was not consistent as it came and went unexpectedly. The breakfast was good, fast and hot, with a great selection, including smoked salmon. All-in-all a good place to stay.

Room Tip: Get a room at the end of the hall--if you cannot handle steps you need to mention this. If you are...

We really enjoyed our 2-night stay at Actons Hotel this May. Rooms were well-appointed and clean and the staff were very friendly. The location is excellent, right on the harbor and within easy walking distance to the center of town. The breakfast was very good. The free WiFi was also a major plus. The only minor issue we had was that the elevator was broken when we arrived and we had to lug our luggage up 2 flights of stairs to the room. Otherwise a great stay.

We stayed here for one night during our 10 day trek through Ireland. There was nothing special about this hotel, but it never really promised anything special so our expectations were met. We had a standard double room which was on the small side with an even smaller bathroom. But everything was clean and the decor was simple. Don't think I could've stayed here more than one night but it served its purposes and we had no complaints.

Room Tip: I'd recommend asking for a room with a view of the bay so you're not facing an alley and fee...
