Chris and Tom were so warm and welcoming from the start. We had the best sleep and breakfast from our whole trip in Ireland, I would thoroughly recommend a stay here!

arrived in kinsale after touring the ring of Kerry. What a welcome - delightful room and shower ensuite. verey reasonably priced . The host were just fantastic and welcoming. It really felt like we had just come home and were part of the family. They were great to chat with and very informative of the area. Would highly recommend them to anyone visiting kinsale and was able to park outside. the best breakfast of our short visit to ireland. the scones were fabulous

Proprietor Tom and Chrissie Quigley. A wonderful homey atmosphere!! Tom (a retired Garda) and his son Cian were great hosts and we had a lovely breakfast with all that you could think of to eat and wonderful conversation. The only disappointment here would be that we didn't get a chance to meet Chrissie as she was recuperating in hospital but hoping to be discharged soon. We hope she is back in the Olde Bakery running a tight ship and feeling well now.

We stayed at the Olde Bakery and couldn't have been happier there.
Tom & Chrissie were the nicest hosts & made us an outstanding traditional irish breakfast. The rooms were clean & comfy. They made us feel right at home. I would highly recommend this B & B to anyone staying in the Kinsale area....which might I add was a pretty place on the water.

We stayed at the Olde Bakery B&B in Kinsale for a night on our road trip through Ireland. Kinsale is a neat harbor town, albeit a little sleepy when we were there. It makes a perfect overnight spot, particularly if you are going to play Old Head (less than 20 minute drive from B&B) or head on to Killarney or Dingle. This B&B is centrally located near the restaurants and harbor (less than 5 minute walk). We didn’t use our car when we were there, so as other reviewers have mentioned, though B&B doesn’t have private parking, we found a spot within a few blocks of the B&B and it was a non-issue.

As for the B&B itself, it is run by an exceedingly warm, interesting older couple (Tom & Chrissie) with two friendly, little dogs (that are not allowed in the rooms or the kitchen). While it is in town in a very convenient location, it is on a quiet street, which makes for undisturbed sleeping. Our double room was large, clean and with a sizeable ensuite bathroom. A nice hairdryer was provided, which I always appreciate.

I agree with other posters that it feels like you are staying with relatives in their home. That atmosphere was a nice break for us, as it provided a personal touch and road-tripping in a different country can be a bit stressful. Tom provides solid restaurant recommendations, and they had by far the largest, best breakfast spread of anywhere we stayed! In sum, I would absolutely choose to stay at this B&B when passing through Kinsale again.

Tom & Chrissie made us feel right at home. Chrissie welcomed us and found us a parking spot close by.Due to a cancellation, we were able to stay in the large room downstairs, which saved us carrying our bags up to the 2nd floor! The location is an easy walk into town and Kinsale has much to offer. We joined other guests in the kitchen for a delicious full Irish breakfast cooked by Tom~excellent fresh eggs and bacon and homemade breads.
Good value, can recommend you stay here!
