“Quirky.....Well worth a visit!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 July 2014

Great location. Great atmosphere. Great Guinness. Service a little slow however staff were friendly and I would highly recommend this hostelry when you are visiting Kinsale. We parked at Charles Fort and walked the short distance to the pub, only about a three minute walk. After we had been fed and watered we walked around the Fort which was interesting and well worth a look

“When you think of an Irish pub think Bulman!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 July 2014

This place is what you think of when you think Irish pub. The waitstaff was welcoming and friendly. We had Maggie who was playful and fun. The meal may not have been cheap but no meal was while in Ireland. The view was spectacular. Go to the Bulman! You won't be disappointed.

“Lively,bustling and great food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 July 2014

This bar,restaurant is part of a hotel. There is something for everyone. A bar,a bistro and a coffee house. The food was absolutely lovely. Plenty of it and served with a huge smile.
Extremely busy so booking is recommended.

“The pearl in the Oyster”

Food here tastes like it should; a must if visiting Kinsale. I can still taste the sea when I think of the Bulman.
