Beutiful home and outstanding view. The host was very helpful and friendly and the breakfast was "first class!" I whole heartedly recommend!

The room was beautifully decorated with a cozy, but modern feel. Our view from the bedroom window was gorgeous. The location was pretty convenient, only about 5-10 mins from Kinsale village. Only disappointment was breakfast- the smoked salmon on my eggs smelled so strong and fishy that I lost my appetite. My husband and family all chose the "pancakes." They...

Claire, the proprietor was fun, friendly, & helpful. We even had a chance to catch up on our email there, using the house computer by the fire in the large, pleasant sitting room. The food was excellent. In fact, we were happy with everything at Rivermount! We noted a large difference among B&B's while we were in Ireland. This one...

I have stayed at Rivermount several times now and the staff at Rivermount always make me feel welcome and at home. Occasionally business takes me to the Kinsale region and after a great experience several years ago I always return to Rivermount every time. It is as peaceful and tranquil as you could want yet only minutes from Kinsale town...

Good location in the country, not in town, but not far out. Less than 10 minutes. Clean, nice size bathroom. Pleasant hostess, great breakfast. Would have liked staying longer than 1 night, but well worth the research I put into finding this gem.

We were lucky enough to book 2 nights at this lovely B&B in Kinsale!! Besides being in a beautiful accommodation inside and out, the host family was delightful!!! They could not have been more accommodating or helpful. This was the final B&B we stayed in in Ireland after a week of traveling around. It was the first one where the...

I called Claire on Friday morning for a room that same night. She said "Sure, no problem." I asked her if she took B&B vouchers and she said "Sure, no problem. What time can I expect you?" She didn't ask for a credit card deposit or make me go through any of that hassle. When we arrived we found out...

In Ireland for 10 days, we were looking forward to a day away from the hustle and bustle of things. After much research we decided on Rivermount House. We were greeted straight away by Martin and made the perfect breakfast by Claire. Our room was clean, quiet, and comfortable. The views are spectacularly breathtaking and the inside of the home...

We were greeted at the door with "an I'm sorry we only have single beds available". Tiny room. No light bulb in main lamp. Pretentious decoration with bad craftsmanship (chipped tile and grout). Our room overlooked owners private yet dingy yard. Not close to town--about 5km. I'm really shocked about the other good reviews. This is no where as welcoming...

Overlooking the scenic river, Rivermount House completed a total upgrade and refurbishment in 2008. It offers four-star quality at affordable rates. We feature classic mahogany furniture, heavily embossed wall coverings and exquisite soft furnishings, which have all resulted in creating an ambiance of luxury comfort and style. With a classy polished marble foyer, this accommodation feels more like a boutique hotel but with the personal attention and traditional warmth of a B&B. ... more   less
