Reviewed March 10, 2011

My wife and I thoroughyly enjoyed our stay in Kinsale. Noreen and Phil are the perfect hosts. Their breakfasts are amazing and the beds are so good that I wanted to take them home with me.

We spent one night in Kinsale at the Old Presbytery. We arrived early yet Noreen had a room ready for us and with Phillip they could not have made us feel more welcome or at home!

The room was lovely, the bed was comfy and the bathroom was clean and fresh. The breakfast was to die for!!

We hope to visit Kinsale again and there is no better place to stay!!!

We stayed here for two nights while driving through Ireland - it was the perfect place to stay in the lovely Kinsale! The house is just beautiful! Breakfast was delicious and our hosts were helpful and welcoming. They sent us to Max's for dinner, where we had an amazing meal! There are even two computers right outside the dining room for guests to use, in addition to the free wifi.

My boyfriend and I spent two nights in Kinsale at The Old Presbytery. We really enjoyed everything about our stay. We stayed in a small room at the top of several flights of stairs but the view of the town and harbor was worth the climb. While it wasn't large, the room was quite nice with a little seating area under the window. The breakfast was excellent as other reviews mentioned and the location (with plenty of parking) can't be beat. My boyfriend had been to Kinsale previously in the summer and mentioned that the town felt a bit dead in the fall by comparison. However, it was a lovely side trip and the B&B was top notch.

My wife has stayed here with a group of friends on many occasions (for the Kinsale Jazz festival) but this was the first time I had been. I had heard so many good stories that I was really excited about staying and I was not disappointed. The welcome and service from Philip and Noreen was warm and friendly, the room just perfect and as many people have said, the breakfast has to be among the best you will have. I hope to stay again next October!

Spent our first night in Ireland at The Old Presbytery. Noreen gave us a wonderful 1st floor room with charming furniture, a small balcony and contemporary bath with jacuzzi tub/ great shower. The parking lot is a huge plus with an easy walk about the town from their central location. Noreen was very helpful providing a walking map identifying good restaurants and sites. The 2nd floor dining room was bright, beautifuly decorated with large windows providing a city overlook. Noreen's breakfast was elegant, generous and delicious.

We stayed at the Old Presbytery for one night only, but we could have easily stayed a few more nights. Philip and Noreen are wonderful owners/hosts of this charming and beautiful hotel. The rooms are immaculate and cozy at the same time. The beds are super comfy and the bathroom fixtures are brand new (if you stay in the new part of the hotel...the water pressure was light, though, but who cares; you're on vacation!) There is so much personality in every corner of this hotel. Philip and Noreen make you feel right at home as soon as you come inside. Be sure to check out the lounge area (right off the reception area). It's decorated beautifully -- just like Kinsale. Eat at MAX's for dinner. Philip recommended it and it was wonderful! The best food during our whole trip! You can't go wrong with any restaurant in Kinsale. They have the best food in Ireland! The breakfast at the Old Pres was wonderful, too. Everyone who stayed there was super nice and had great energy. You will love the Old Pres and Kinsale!
