The staff, and specifically Rose, are incredibly helpful and sweet. We had traveled from the US to Ireland and had many issues along the way including two canceled flights resulting in a ten hour layover in LHR then a flight to SNN instead of ORK. By the time we got to Kinsale we were wrecked, only to find that the...

The Whitehouse Kinsal is a delightful B&B in a colorful town, centrally located with confident parking in the back. We did have a fair amount of rain but it did not slow us down. The town itself is a big sailing hub.

We stopped here because we wanted to sample the local fish. Oysters were a good starter but the mussels were spoiled by the sauce which contained far too much thyme or other herb. There were herb plants in the covered garden room (smokers allowed) and it felt as if the profilic thyme was being hurled into every dish. After reading...

Stayed two nights at the White House. Location is in the middle of town with parking in the back. Nice pub area and breakfasts were great. Friendly helpful staff including Michael and his twin. :) Room was clean and comfortable. Can get some street noise, but you're downtown. Wish we'd tried the restaurant in an evening.

Nice b&b right in the middle of Kinsale. We had a triple room which had plenty of space but was a bit noisy as it was overlooking a pub. Room was clean and comfortable.

On our 10 Day Tour of Ireland we were told by a friend here in Arizona that we had to stay at this hotel if we made it to Kinsale. We called and got a great rate. The hotel was clean fresh and nice with an attached Restaurant and Bar. On the walls were an ode to 9/11, New York...

We stayed one night in a triple room. Welcoming, very comfortable, very clean, great location and good breakfast. Limited parking, but the public car park next to the tourist office is a few minutes walk and free between 6pm and 10.30am, which suited us perfectly.

Attentive staff, convenient location within walking distance to everything, delicious dinner, great breakfast, and comfy room. We stayed 2 comfortable nights before checking out and beginning a weeklong cycling tour. When we returned we were welcomed and allowed space to change out of our gear. Very nice and accommodating.

One of the best meals had on a recent visit to Kinsale. The whole experience top notch. Decor and staff up there with the best. Menu prices perfect for the fare you get. Booking meal is essential as we were lucky to get a table. Well done. Will be back for more.
