Reviewed 11 October 2011

We received a very warm welcome on arrival and this continued throughout our stay. The house is very elegantly decorated and the facilities are certainly 5 star. The rooms, bathrooms etc. are immaculate with every facility. The guest lounges and dining room beautifully decorated with everything to hand and wonderful views over the Bandon river. Claire is very knowledgeable about the surrounding area and gives excellent suggestions to make guests visit as enjoyable as possible. We will certainly return and will recommend to our friends in the UK.

Room Tip: We had a lovely room on the ground floor which was spacious and light with a wonderful view over the...

It is hard to believe its 3 years since our last visit to Kinsale and we were looking forward to returning to Rivermount & again we were not disappointed, it is excellent accommodation. The house has recently received a 5* accolade & this is a well deserved award, it is extremely well appointed & the interior decor is just ~FAB. There are lovely little seating areas in the lobby and the views from there are superb. Tea & Coffee is availabe also in this area. The rooms are lovely spacious clean with every possible need. The breakfast is just fab, a very wide choise you would want to stay longer to sample it all. The wonderful thing about Rivermount is that is is about 2 miles from the town of Kinsale so near enough to experience the wonderful town that is Kinsale but far enough for some peace & quiet in the evenings & at night. If visiting Kinsale then Rivermount is a must.

This is a very well designed home opened up to the public. It has been beautifully renovated recently and you can tell that Claire and her family put their all into it. The only drawback is that it is 3 miles from downtown Kensale.

This property is very clean and modern. It has a wonderful view to eat breakfast by in the morning. They serve a full Irish breakfast and have friendly service. Rooms are very clean and showers nice and hot. I shared a room with single beds and they weren't so comfortable! Free internet service and a world class golf course close by.

This is a great B&B, refurbished not long ago to a very good standard. Our room was very clean and the Ens bathroom followed the to the same standard. the beds were big and comfortable.
Claire and her husband are very welcoming, they have staff to help them keep their guests stay as enjoyable as it can be. They certainly succeeded with us.
Breakfast was delightful, and the view indescribable. Set in peaceful surroundings, this is the perfect retreat for a holiday. Minutes away from the lovely town of Kinsale where we found some really refreshing food, notably at the Fishy Fishy restaurant were you can’t possibly get fresher fish…
I do regret one thing and one only, I had to go home.
Thanks for a wonderful stay.
