This is for folks who are interested in seeing the country side of Ireland. The proprietor, Nan, was outstanding. She offered several items for breakfast which was served in a beautiful dining room. Her homemade breads were delicious. We had a gorgeous view from the room. Downside is that there is only one restaurant near by.

Been there (sadly) for one night, but met some great people there. Nan is a pretty nice lady, talked a little bit with her. The view over the bay was pretty amazing. And the rooms were old, but that's the irish charme.

We arrived late after a long drive from Dublin. Nan was absolutely wonderful she greeted us with a big smile and a pot of tea. The common area was so warm and comfortable we felt at home. The views were beautiful everything was exactly what I expected. Breakfast was plentiful and really good. We loved everything about this place.

Harbour Crest had a very nice common area with a water view and comfortable furnishings. Our host Nan was very hospitable and she gave us a great dinner recommendation for the Pink Elephant. The room and food were both very good.

Nan, our host was just wonderful and welcoming. The view of the bay and green pastures were lovely. The breakfast was full and hearty, plenty to get us going for a long travel day. The fact that a tour bus driver personally stays here when he's in town says a lot.

This B&B is out away from any town. So if you are coming outside or regular check in, let them know or they may not be there. My sister and I stayed here for three nights. It's about a 20 minute drive to Kinsale. Our room was comfortable. Breakfast was delicious. The view was very nice. The atmosphere was relaxing.... More
