And our bed was soooo comfy! Also the room had lots of space! Bathroom not huge, but fine for Ireland. We had a balcony and view if marina! The...

After reading the many glowing reviews on Tripadvisor, we were more than a little disappointed when we arrived at the Pier House. While our room and our sons' room were decorated very stylishly, the beds were rock hard and the duvet was comically heavy ("is it filled with gold ingots?" I joked). It was warm in the room, however, we...

Great location within walking distance to restaurants and shops. Friendly and welcoming. Nice porch and internet/reading room. Breakfast was awesome. Best fruit crepes I have ever had! Good recommendations for restaurants and local music. Would stay again.

Great B&B in Kinsale! Ann the owner is fantastic and a great help! Perfect location in the middle of a cute seaside town in Ireland. The room was great, clean. Tiny bathrooms, but which ones are not in Europe. A little reading nook, wine room, and patio. Breakfast was delicious.

Clean, modern art on wall, quiet. Thoughtful owner. Great location, walking distance to stores & restaurants. Our room had small balcony that was nice. Would like to go back. Breakfast included. Free, safe parking across street. Short drive to Cork yet on water/harbor .

Great location for exploring Irish, south coast town. Free parking. Hardworking owner provided clean & friendly setting for our adult family, along with great Irish breakfast. We hiked to both forts in Kinsale which takes about 45 minutes walk each way.

I stayed here for two nights with two girlfriends. Ann was just wonderful - very welcoming and her little Westie Toby was also a friendly greeter. Ann helped us carry our luggage up the stairs and then recommended restaurants and entertainment to us before leaving us for the evening. She knew exactly what she was talking about! Our room ended...

Ann is a wonderful host and so helpful with recommendations (OMG - Bruno's) and directions. The room was small, with little room for our clothes, but that was not an issue since we were only staying one night. It also had a balcony and a view of the harbor. Pier House is decorated beautifully, with many interesting touches. The courtyard...

Shane and I had a wonderful time. The property is perfectly located in Kinsale for easy walking and bus access. Anne is a wonderful hostess and the food was fantastic. Good healthy variety if you don't always want the full irish. We will most definitely be back.
