This was our first time staying in Kinvara Guesthouse. We were a large family group, needing several rooms, and all of us were extremely happy with the experience. The rooms were large and spotless. The bathrooms were also nicely sized. The staff was pleasant, and the breakfast was very good with many options. It is ideally located, right around the...

Spent 3 nights here in late July and would recommend. Very spacious, comfortable room, good breakfast, very pleasant staff. Right in the middle of this little town, with plenty of parking. As others have said, closer to a hotel than a guesthouse, with a lounge and computer for guests use, as well as decent wifi in the bedroom. Only snag...

The photos don´t say much, but this was my favourite hotel in Ireland. Quaint town, 1 block away from the ocean. 10 minutes walking distance from the Dunguaire Castle. There are small restaurants, bars, local shops outside the hotel. There is a supermarket next to the hotel. A childrens playground 5 minutes away. Free parking, free wifi, GREAT made to...

We booked the family room for one night and it was EXCELLENT! There is an elevator, which allowed my elderly grandparents to avoid the stairs. My ONLY recommendation would be to add a free standing shower (the bathroom is HUGE; I imagine this IS plausible) to make the accommodation completely accessible for those with mobility issues. The room was clean,...

This delightful guesthouse is situated in the pretty fishing village of Kinvara on the shores of Galway Bay. We spent two nights here recently on our travels around Ireland. We arrived quite late on the first night having been waylaid in our touring around the Cliffs of Moher, but we were given a lovely welcome by our hosts. Our room...

I was pleasantly surprised with the quality of the guesthouse, facilities and rooms. The place is clean, comfortable and well maintained with modern furnishings. The restaurant service was great, and I had the full Irish breakfast every morning which was great! Right in the middle of Kinvara, across the road from many pubs and next door to the local supermarket....

We get reserved a family room for the four of us and got a huge room overlooking the town. The room was spotless and comfortable. I would have to say that this was probably one of the best values that we found on our 2 week trip through Ireland. The pub across the street has good food.

A perfectly functional place, our room was spotless with a comfy bed and a great shower. Breakfast was ok, budget and functional (sliced pan bread) but with some choice. The guesthouse is right in the middle of Kinvara, which when we visited over Easter wkd, was just waking from the winter slumber and was still a bit sleepy. Location-wise its...
