“Hidden gem!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 20, 2010

This spotless guesthouse was a real find! Very modern (opened a year ago) and once you get past reception, up to date in tasteful decorations and amenities. Reception was rather spartan, however made up for by friendly reception staff who first showed us around the very inviting guest lounge with complimentary newspapers and magazines, a huge flat screen TV, and a kitchen off it with tea, coffee and snacks. Our rooms were clean and comfortable and also had tea & coffee making facilities. Shower worked well, lots of hot water. My chronic back problem disappeared in the well sprung bed, beautiful soft sheets! Tempting to stay in and relax instead of attend the family function we were in town for. Breakfast was ample choice of cereals, juices, fruit and yogurts and a hot full Irish if desired. Tea coffee and toast as much as you wanted. Will definitely pay a return visit if the opportunity arises.

Stayed on May 13th.

Kinvarra Guesthouse is an interesting place - it is advertised as a luxury b & b and true to that claim, our room was very modern and stylistic with wooden floors, a flat-panel TV, and a great, spacious bathroom. It is also located in the center of the town, about 10 minutes walk from Dunguaire Castle. What it might lack is the presence of an actual owner (that's not a bad thing unless you enjoy chatting it up with every b & b owner you meet). When we arrived there, we were asked to check in with a clerk at Londis (Allison, who was very friendly). Since we had an early flight to catch, we couldn't really sample the breakfast but Allison set us up with continental breakfast at 7AM, which we were very grateful for. This place also has free wi-fi, which is a definite plus. We have no complaints about this place and probably will stay there again - the location and the price are both good, as well as the facility itself.

Spend last night there, it is very clean, friendly, new and better than many hotels. 32"-LCD-TV, Chipcards for the door, and so on...
You can choose between B&B with Irish (30€/Person) and Intercontinental breakfast (32.50€/Person). Just 10 Meters away a Supermarket.
I'll come back, next time I'm in Ireland.

Stayed in this B&B in the picturesque village of Kinvara. One of the best B&B's I've ever stayed in. The bedrooms are of a standard similar to a hotel - really modern spacious and comfortable. This B&B is well positioned in the village of Kinvara. The breakfast was excellent with excellent choice between full Irish breakfast and the continental option. The service was excellent. Really enjoyed our stay here.
