IT is the intention of the owners to Make Kilcaw House a first class B&B investing in the facilities and in hospitality. We are confidend they will succeed. Nicely located on a Hill top a fox curiously took notice of us in the breakfast room. A very good breakfast for that matter.

A very good location less than 10 minutes from Kinsale Town Centre. Our host, Christina, was very accommodating/helpful and our room very comfortable. Wished our stay was longer than one night as there's much to see in Kinsale and surrounding area.

We enjoyed a 2 night stay with Christina at her wonderful B&B just a short distance from town. Very nice rooms, great breakfasts, and it was nice not to have to struggle to find overnight parking.

Enjoyed a night at Kilcaw House and awesome Irish hospitality! We arrived soaking wet after sight seeing in the rain. Chris graciously threw our stuff in the dryer for us. Headed to the Spaniard for food, drinks and song which was a short cab drive away. Room was large, bed comfortable and breakfast was awesome as was the travel recommendations....

Our room was large by normal B&B standards. It was very clean as was the ensuite. Christine was a lovely hostess and made us feel welcome. The breakfast was delicious and beautifully cooked and presented. This B&B is just on the outskirt of Kinsale making it very quiet and pleasant in it's semi rural location. We would recommend Kilcaw House...

Very tidy..well kept grounds. Quiet and away from the busy & congested city center. We were very pleased with the breakfast, service and accommodations. Adequate sized room, nice place to stay for the night. There were 4 in our party and we occupied two rooms. No issues with either room. Plenty of parking and short hop to the city center....

Great location just on the edge of town, Christina was a lovely host & even drove us to town on our evening out. The room was comfy & lots of room, the property was beautiful & very scenic. Great Irish breakfast, you won't go hungry after staying here, we would return in a flash !!

What a place. one kilometre outside the town so nice and quiet but yet close to everything. Great breakfast. spotless rooms and a wonderful hostess. Chris I am only we couldn't stay longer. If you want to stay in a real irish home this is the place. My third time and there will be many more. See you again Kinsale

“You could walk to Kinsale from here (about a km) but would probably recommend cab or driving (or asking Andy if he is headed to town :) ).”

“Although I am a single person , I was given a lovely double bedroom with en-suite bathroom. I have seen several of her other rooms, all wonderful. Also, the dining room, hall/entrance and sitting area for guests all spotlessly clean,beautifully decorated and comfortable . I noticed lovely fresh flowers were always placed in this area too. Very welcoming and comfortable .”
