My husband & I were in Kinsale during the middle of our honeymoon in Ireland earlier this month. I have to say, Kinsale was probably the prettiest town, in my opinion. It is absolutely out of a fairytale & Desmond House was the perfect place to stay.
Michael greeted us upon arrival & insisted on carrying my bag upstairs (such a gentleman). We stayed in the Charles Fort Suite & it had a wonderful view of Kinsale. The room was very large & had the best shower & water pressure we encountered during our entire trip. Breakfast was delicious (my husband thought Michael's eggs were the best we had) & Michael was just an absolute delight. Upon leaving, he provided us w/a list of suggested stops we could make on our way to Bantry, which we followed exactly :) & found extremely helpful.
Michael also had my favorite quote of our trip which came when I was expressing our opinions on Irish country roads... he said, "Americans drive on the right side of the road & the British drive on the left... but the Irish drive down the middle!".
Michael - we will be back, with the family ;)
