2 nights for us in Kinsale. Cloisters was superb, with a delightful room, excellent breakfast and a lot of warm conversation. Nothing was too much trouble for our two hosts, and we recommend Cloisters unreservedly.

We couldn't have felt more welcomed. Our hostesses were very helpful. The breakfast was outstanding. The room we stayed in was extremely clean and very well decorated. They were anxious to be sure we could get into a restaurant of our choosing and to point out points of interest. I would love to come back and spend more time in...

Calm, friendly and very clean. This place is tastefully designed and decorated to make your stay in this little village a delight. The owners are very helpful and smart in their suggestions. The breakfast was as good as they get - made for you and made well. I would return in an instant.

I'll start by saying I didn't stay here but tried to. I sent an email to request availability and was responded to promptly within 24 hrs. Aileen, unfortunately, responded that they were full on the dates we were going to be there, but proceeded to provide us with other locations while providing the links or contact emails. I was quite...

We absolutely loved our stay at Cloisters. Orla and Aileen are wonderful hosts and have great recommendations for places to see, dine and enjoy in beautiful Kinsale. Our room was perfect, plenty of space, comfortable bed and a very large bathroom which was spotlessly clean. The homemade breakfast was delicious and you could choose from a large Irish breakfast to...

Friendly hosts, Very clean. Charming rooms, on smaller side but I loved it. Beautifully decorated. Good bed. I could hear the snoring from the next room but had noise cancellation headphones. Wonderful breakfast. Highly recommend. Quiet location. Was here in October when the Jazz Festival was in town - amazing.

My husband and I spent 3 wonderful nights here whilst exploring Kinsale and surrounds. Orla and Aileen were perfect hosts, the breakfasts were delicious and the ensuite room clean, spacious and very attractively decorated.Right in the heart of Kinsale we left the car parked and walked. Thank you for your wonderful hospitality.

Rooms felt very clean. I always check mattress covers and mattress and they were clean and in good condition. A little bit of mold in bathroom (just a warning if you have severe allergies). The room was very spacious, beds very comfortable. The hosts were very welcoming and helpful. Orla gave wonderful suggestions on where to eat. She even gave...

If you haven't been to Kinsale yet and look on a map where the Cloisters B & B is you would swear it would be noisy by its close proximity to the downtown area. You would be wrong. It is extremely quiet both inside and outside the inn. The breakfasts were excellent!! Orla and Aileen were so helpful for directions...

We had one night to stay in Kinsale and luckily found this B&B through the Rick Steves travel guide. When we arrived the smell of bread baking filled the house and made even the first contact so inviting! The room was spacious and spotless. Kinsale is a town that is easy to walk. Orla, the inn keeper, gave us an...
