“Absolutely wonderful”
Reviewed November 20, 2013

Harbour Hill Farm is such a wonderful B & B. It is beautiful, comfortable, close to town with amazing views. Siobhan and Nigel make you feel so welcome. The bedrooms are beautifully decorated with very comfortable beds. We also liked to sit and enjoy the warm fire in the sitting room. The breakfast is so delicious and everything is so fresh - tomatoes from their garden, fresh egss from their own hens - just wonderful! I can not say enough about this wonderful B & B. Kinsale is a beautiful village and Harbour Hill Farm is the place to stay if you are visiting.

What a beautiful place to stay and wonderful hospitality. There are beautiful views from every window. We stayed 4 nights and each night felt like we were returning home. Siobhan and Nigel were delightful!! The B&B was very clean and very comfortable. The breakfasts were the best way to start a day and really the best breakfasts we had in Ireland. It is a short ride to the village of Kinsale. I can't say enough about what a wonderful eperience Harbour Hill Farm is!

We stayed 3 nights at this wonderful B&B in the outskirts of the charming town of Kinsale. Our hosts, Nigel and Siobhan, couldn't have been nicer. They worked their hearts out to ensure our stay was the very best. Room was small but very clean and comfortable. The breakfasts were outstanding with a variety of fresh fruit, cereal, juice, toast, yogurt and a wide choice "main courses". Skip the Fishy-Fishy restaurant for dinner as it is over rated and over priced. A visit to the Queenstown Story in Cobh is worth a visit.

Siobhan and Nigel are as warm and welcoming as any two hosts can be. They run an immaculate B and B in a beautiful setting, a five minute drive from Kinsale.

Our room was king bedded and, though not large, was cleverly outfitted with all amenities without being cluttered. We enjoyed the view down the hill and out over Kinsale Harbor.

A breakfast buffet was offered with a wide choice of fruits, yoghurt and cereals. Egg selections as well as waffles and oatmeal could be ordered off the menu as well. After so many days of full Irish breakfasts, I thoroughly enjoyed the creamiest oatmeal (porridge) I've ever had. After a week in Ireland, I fancy myself an expert on brown bread. This was the best, and Siobhan gladly shared the recipe with me which she confided came from Ashford Castle.

You will most definitely enjoy your star at Harbour Hill Farm.

Siobhan and Nigel were wonderful hosts, and the B&B beautiful. The surroundings are gorgeous, and just far enough away from town. Highly recommend the Harbour Hill Farm. We took a taxi to the town center to avoid driving after an evening of music and frolic. Very convenient, very fun!

The property is beautiful and the breakfast was delicious. Siobhan and Nigel are very welcoming. One note, it isn't quite walking distance from Kinsale, unless you want an hour long stroll, which you may want to do because the scenery is gorgeous. I would not hesitate recommending this B&B.

I have to agree with previous reviewers in saying that the hosts were what made the place unique. They were very friendly and welcoming. The setting was beautiful, with a lovely garden. We enjoyed hearing about the workings of the farm but as it was rainy did not get the chance to see the operation. The rooms were comfortable and the setting was very quiet and peaceful. It is located a few minutes drive from town. The breakfast was great, especially the buffet with fresh fruit and the full Irish breakfast was a bit above average as well.
