The Old Presbytery was the perfect place to stay in Kinsale. We were visiting for our honeymoon in October 2016, and they upgraded us to a different room. The location is perfect for exploring Kinsale-Everything is within walking distance. Breakfast was delicious- try the warm fruit crepes! The hosts were very nice and helpful with dining suggestions and directions. If...

We stayed 3 nights in Room #2A and really enjoyed our visit to Kinsale. It was one of our favorite places in Ireland. Nice harbor with beautiful sailboats. Take a harbor tour if the weather is nice. Our room was quite large with a large bathroom as well. We really enjoyed staying here. The B&B was located within walking distance...

This charming bed and breakfast, The Old Presbytery is very quaint and charming. It deserves its rating. It's very near the Desmond Castle on the hill and an easy walk down to town. There are several interesting sights to see on this hill and it's a quiet place for respite.

My large family stayed at the Old Presbytery and I loved it! The staff was so accommodating and went above and beyond to make sure we were all happy. Some of the family had already been there before, but it was my first time. The town of Kinsale is one that everyone should put on their list of things to...

The breakfast in the charming breakfast room was delicious (especially the porridge). The owner was lovely & helpful & the proximity to pubs, shops & restaurants was ideal. There...

You can tell they love being proprietors and love people and what they are doing and make you feel welcome besides providing fabulous over the top breakfasts....

Let me just start off by saying that we spent 10 days on our trip to Ireland from Seattle and this was the absolute best place we stayed. Kinsale was such a great town with great restaurants and shopping. The hosts, Philip & Noreen, were amazingly gracious hosts. We have recommended The Old Presbytery to every one of our friends...

This is not a B&B it is a fantastic experience. We had a fabulous stay here from the minute we arrived to when we left, the Accomodation is top class the hosts are excellent and the breakfast is to die for. The beds are so comfortable but it's all the little touches like heavy dark curtains, comfortable chairs, good bath...

We booked 2 rooms for 2 couples in this beautiful B&B for our 1 night stay in Kinsale during late October, 2016. Our hosts, Noreen and Philip McEvoy, went above and beyond to provide us with everything we needed for a memorable stay. Our rooms (6 and 7) were just gorgeous. Wonderfully comfortable king size beds, luxurious bedding, lovely sitting...
