Upstairs restaurant is nice but a little cramped....was there when the temperature was quite high outside and the kitchen door was open to the restaurant which just added to the heat! The menu is a bit limited but the food was good, I heard mixed...More

First visit to the Bullman and thoroughly enjoyed every moment of it. Fantastic food, fabulous service and great great atmosphere. If you’re in Kinsale it’s a must.

Lovely atmosphere, great food and service with beautiful views across the bay to Kinsale. A perfect lunch on a sunny March Monday with a walk up to the castle close by afterwards.

We stop here every time we go to Kinsale for its delicious food (seafood chowder, lobster, fish&chips...) or just for a pint. On top of that, the view is lovely.

The Bulman is one of those places that you fall in love with. On a sunny day the pub extends out to the car park that sits on the water overlooking stunning views of Kinsale and Jamesfort. This is what a traditional Irish pub looks...More

When I walk into an Irish pub,you normally get a warm greeting straightaway ,even if the barman is chatting to two locals and ignoring me at 6'3''.....so no I didn't find the initial reception good after all my long time Irish mate has hyped up...More
