"no room at the inn " anywhere except .....The White House. (which we had our eye on anyway) but fully booked. We managed to have supper 15 min before the kitchen closed with...

Had a lovely boozy afternoon here, getting in some practice in readiness for St Patrick's day. Great atmosphere in the bar, where copious drinks were imbibed by our party. Pretty much a central destination in town and good meeting point.

Hi all, We were down over the weekend and we started with a bevvie in The White House. To be honest, we should have come straight back here after our meal! Lesson learned. We did eventually make it back to the pub and were happily allowed sit in the waiting area of the restaurant as there were no seats in...

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...
