The Old Presbytery has been a B&B for many years, but originally it was a Presbytery housing Kinsale's clergy. Our room was overlooking Cork Street and was quite small, with a brass bed and small ensuite but beautifully decorated to suit the era of the building and very comfortable. It is centrally located so you can easily walk around the town and down to the river. The breakfast was one of the best we had in 3 weeks travelling around Ireland. A wonderful fruit salad with at least 6 different fruits, a buffet of various quality cereals with yoghurt and prunes and a large choice of hot breakfasts to choose from in the menu. And of course a choice of coffees and teas. There is also off road parking provided. The only negative would be the shower. Because of the solar tubes (an environmental positive) the hot water takes a while to arrive, but if you are aware in advance you won't stand there thinking there is no hot water. We would definitely stay there again if visiting Kinsale in the future.
