We checked in and went to our room to lay down after a long day of traveling and the bed was like a prison bed! I We went down and ask for another room and they did change it, However it is a run down facility and the rooms are very small, do not be deceived by the pictures they show you the place is not all that!! The food is below average and the staff is friendly but overworked and it reflects in their attitudes not the normal Irish friendly. We loved the town They told us not to go into Ned Kelly's " its A rough place" LOL we had the best time in their despite the warning we went anyway. They played REAL Irish folk songs and it was fun. I guess owner wants everyone to go to their facility's. As I said their are much better restaurants their. Max's was great. Fishy Fishy cafe and we had dinner in a pub one Night down the street and I cant remember the name but it was awesome also. One night the Hotel had a black tie event and we basically were thrown out of the hotel and had to go out no matter what but that was ok because like I said we would not eat their after the first meal But we could not come back and go to the lounge or use any of the facility's we could only go to our room. Their are many hotels and B and B in Kinsale do your self a favor and stay some were else. Did I also mention the parking!! It sucks and they do not help you with you bags outside, you have to park about a 1/4 mile away. That's it! Make you decision wisely, I read similar reviews on the uncomfortable rooms and so on they don't care as long as you people ignore these reviews and others accept the crappy food and service it wont change.
