We stayed at this B & B June 2011 - wonderful, welcoming hosts and experience. Beautiful views. Reasonable rates. Very clean, quiet and relaxing. Large common area / living room to relax; have an irish wiskey! A 10 min. walk up the hill from the habour if you do not have a vehicle, but well worth it. Highly recommended! Excellent B & B.

We stayed here for two nights. The home is tucked away on the hillside with wonderful views from some of the rooms. Kinsale is a charming town, not to be missed on a tour of Ireland. We took more photos there than anywhere else on our three-week trip. The B&B was a little too far out for us to walk all the way to town, but our host told us of a convenient place to drive down the street and park. More panoramic views! We ate dinner twice at Jim Edwards' in town. We would happily stay here again!

Room Tip: Ask for a room with a view.

My wife and daughters and I had a wonderful stay at the Rocklands house in mid-July. Both rooms had beautiful views of the river and surrounding hills. It was a only a 10-15 minute walk from Kinsale center, yet the Inn is definitely in the peaceful countryside. The Innkeeper, John is a true gentleman and went out of his way to make us feel welcomed. The rooms are clean, comfortable, and well maintained. We are looking forward to returning to the Rocklands house on our next visit to Kinsale.

We loved staying at Rocklands House Bed and Breakfast during our visit to Kinsale. The charming home overlooks the harbor and is clean and beautiful. The hosts were very hospitable, the food was delicious, the rooms were clean, views were spectacular, and it was very quiet. The home is a slight distance from the town of Kinsale but not far at all. We would definitely go back to this bed and breakfast next time.

Nice rooms: ours was quiet, small triple with very nice view. Great location & property. 10 minute walk to town with beautiful views of Kinsale Harbor and the Forts along the way. Good breakfast with wonderful view. We'd go back in a heartbeat.

My wife and I had stumbled across the Rocklands House through a simple google search and so glad that we did. We had a room with a king size bed and a balcony overlooking the river and surrounding hills. It was a 10 minute walk from the town's center and a perfect location to mix the liveliness of a quaint Irish village with the peacefulness of the countryside. The owner, John, was more than accommodating and a pleasure to deal with from the booking process and through our stay with them. I would recommend this as a perfect weekend getaway to a great place to stay if you are touring Ireland. We are looking forward to our next visit to Kinsale and our stay with the Rocklands house.

John was wonderful and the food was great. The bed and pillows make me want to go back. One from our party was sick and John even made an appointment for us at the local clinic. I would recomend this to anyone.
