I actually live in Kinsale myself but due to a dinner party in our family home my sister and I had to move out for the night to accommodate relatives. After hearing great reviews about Blindgate House we decided to treat ourselves. And what a treat it was. The room, the ambiance and THE BREAKFAST was amazing. Will definitely return!

Blindgate is very comfortable and welcoming for its guests - owner Maeve Coakley takes great pride and it shows in the fact that every detail is perfect. Rooms are clean and pleasant. Breakfast choices are wonderful. Kinsale is a delightful town with lots of history. We highly recommend Blindgate!

The property was very nice, clean and well kept. Maeve not only runs her house well, but offers lots of choices for breakfast and all very tasty. We liked the location as it was a short walk and the perfect distance to town.

We spent two nights with Maeve at Blindgate House. It was fabulous to leave the car in the carpark and explore the town, just a short walk downhill, on foot! The room was comfortable and quiet, breakfast was excellent and Maeve could not have been a more gracious host! If you find the steps it shortens the walk back up...

During our 14 days in Ireland, this was our favorite. The rooms were above standard and the breakfast was fabulous. Restaurant recommendations and things to do we're perfect. Location was a short walk from town.

I like this place. I like it more than I thought I would actually... it seems a bit "hotel-ly" if you will, at check in. Things are a little bit to functional and uniform to seem like a quaint B&B in Ireland. It's not right in the middle of town, but definitely close enough to walk. You don't get those...

It was at the end of a travel day from Dingle that we learned the Kinsale hotel where we had reservations had overbooked. They more than redeemed themselves by sending us to Blindgate. We were the winners. Nice, clean, updated rooms, delicious breakfast, and a warm welcome from Maeve and team. Great location! Hope to go back some day!
