We stayed here for a night and to call it a B and B is an understatement. It really is more like a boutique hotel. The bedrooms are well appointed, clean modern and all accessories you would except in a hotel, hair drier shampoo tea coffee etc. the breakfast is the best I have ever had, better than any five...

We were expecting a lot from The Old Presbytery. To say that we were not disappointed, simply does not do. Noreen and Phillip McEvoy make everyone feel at home. No detail is left to chance and everything is done to make one's stay a wonderful experience. The Irish breakfast may be the best anywhere in the Emerald Isle; the afternoon...

Had a lovely stay - the hotel is very central, the staff were so friendly and welcoming and could not do enough for you. I stayed in room 6 and it had its own balcony with a nice seating area outside. I can't fault it as a place to stay in Kinsale and would def stay there again.

We stayed here only 1 night but would have loved to stay longer. We stayed in a suite on the top floor with breath-taking views of the harbor. A bit difficult to get our luggage up there but still worth the effort ( we just should have packed less :) We were given wonderful advice about what to do and...

We got very lucky here and got room 6 with large balcony. Beautiful views and nice bathroom and sitting room. Even if you don't get this room, great hotel.

We had a fantastic two-night stay at The Old Presbytery, a wonderful inn near the center of Kinsale and very walkable to everything. Philip and Noreen were fantastic hosts, our bedroom was spacious, and the bathroom fantastic. Breakfasts were amazing; the cold breakfast alone was wonderful, but add to that the incredible hot breakfast menu, and our biggest dilemma was...
