Stayed for 2 nights,lovely clean rooms, very nice staff and great breakfasts. Only downside, and it's very small, is that at busy times in the town it can be hard to get parking close by, but would recommend staying here to anyone!

We stayed in the Old Bank house last night on the final night of a week long roadtrip in Ireland - Kinsale was a last minute choice after deciding against a night in cork having read reviews on trip advisor during the week of Kinsale. I'm so glad we changed our plans because this town is charming and so pretty...

Nice and clean accommodation, lovely Nespresso machine, comfortable bed. However, quite overpriced for what you get. Small bathroom, no wine glasses or cork screw in the room, 4 channels on the TV and also breakfast was a little disappointing when I ordered a full Irish breakfast and it came without pudding (even though it was on the menu).

I loved the way this hotel and restaurant looked and felt. It's rates at holiday time are much, much higher than the Trip Advisor price. I was quoted €189 for this week. It's a sister company of a hotel The Blue Haven down the street so I had to walk down the street to get rates. The best thing is...

I can't say enough about this wonderful place. From start to finish it was a wonderful experience. Gorgeous bed, state of the art Nespresso machine, beautiful view, breakfast outstanding, food and service in the Bistro excellent. We tried but couldn't find a single fault!! Thank you so much for a terrific birthday weekend and for the thoughtful chocolate touch left...

As we traveled to Kinsale during the week, in the off-season, we decided to take our chances and make lodging reservations on the fly. We had heard good things about the Old Bank House, and fortunately, they had a room when we arrived in town. It was quiet, comfortable and centrally located. Both the room and the breakfast exceeded our...

After a wonder round Kinsale, we stopped in here to get out of the cold. Nice cosy cafe which does breakfast, lunch, etc Had tea and water (still stuffed from breakfast earlier). Free wi-fi, no password which is handy. Fast friendly service and nice atmosphere. Would recommend.

Arrived in Kinsale and were pleasantly suprised by the quality accommodations the we found at the Old Bank House B and B. The location was right in the downtown and we were very fortunate to find a parking spot on the street, right in front of the B and B. This is on the main street so you may have...
