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...

We had the suite facing the street...the magnitude and decor of the room was outstanding, the bed was pleasantly warm and comfortable to ease our jet-lagged wearly bodies. Perfect location...perfect service...couldn't have been better. The bathroom was upgraded and the Nespresso coffeemaker was a great touch! Thank you! Oh breakfast was oustanding as well!

The old bank is perfectly located in kinsale and is within walking distance of most attractions. The lift is quiet small and is a little scary with more than one person in it so we opted for the stairs most of the time! The bedroom was a little on the small side but we were only staying for two nights...

There were many choices and everything that the people in our party of 8 chose was delicious! We ordered sandwiches to take with us for a picnic when...

This is a gourmet food store, and a stylish café. I enjoyed a simple brunch which was served in very quick time despite this café being very busy. Ever so friendly staff. Many enjoy a coffee, latte or just a cup of tea with friends. I would highly recommend this to anyone. Will definitely visit again.
