Yes, there is a bus you can get from Parnell place bus station in cork city. The bus to kinsale will bring you to kinsale town but you'll need to take a taxi from there to the hotel which costs about €12. Hope this helps

Nice walks in the summer, pool is ok but I think it would be limited enough in the winter.
