My travelling companions and I stumbled on to The White House when we got to Kinsale and could not have been more pleased. The accommodations were first rate, the restaurant very good, the music was fun and on top of it all the location is center city. Could not have asked for a better place to stay.

I have stayed in numerous hotels throughout the world and Ireland and I must say I was quite impressed with The White House. It was quaint without being pokey and modern without being pretentious. The staff were very nice and helpful and the room was big, clean, tastefully decorated with a large comfy bed. I wasn't woken by other guests, which happens far too often in large hotels, and the breakfast was set in a very lovely restaurant. Great location too.

Room Tip: I had a room which was out front and there was no noise from the streets outside so not to worry abo...

Located right in the center of town, the owner Michael and his wife couldn't have treated us any better if we had been family. Nice rooms, great food, and the Guinness was great. Even had the luck of the Irish with us betting on a few horses, thanks Michael. Can't wait until my next visit (not sure if I want to bring those two friends with me..ha ha.) Thanks again for everything and say hi to everyone for us.

We were a group of 15 "gentlemen" in Kinsale for the weekend and this place really hit the spot. We had great service from Olivia in arranging the booking, the location was the best we could possibly have hoped for (right at the heart of everything), the rooms were compact but more than adequate for our party and the food was top notch! I strongly recommend the "Breakfast platter" which is a full Irish but without all the grease - delish! I'm happy to recommend the White House.

Stayed here last week for one night, central location, gorgeous room with above mentioned ample bed! Breakfast was delicious, with great choice and friendly staff. Went for a run the following morning down by the harbour, it was beautiful.

This is a lovely little boutique hotel, situated right in the heart of Kinsale. Nice, clean rooms- warm (always important). Great breakfast. However this hotels greatest asset is its staff who were all pleasant, helpful and very professional.

We were in Kinsale for one night only and booked at the White House. It is a lovely place, convenient, staff was very helpful and friendly, but I would not stay there for a full holiday. Rooms are quite small, well the bed was huge, the bathroom was very small too, it was comfortable enough though but again for a short stay. The tv was not working, neither was the wi fi but that was not an issue for us as all we needed was a place to stay for the night. The only thing I was not happy with though is that our room must have been located not far from a smoking area and you could smell the smoke coming from outside...other than that, happy!
