“Great Location”
Reviewed 10 July 2013

We stayed for 2 nights B & B in room 208 front of house with Harbor view. June 28 - 28th Great location very friendly staff. Room and bathroom newly renovated. Our room was bigger than average with two lovely big windows overlooking the harbor. Great value for money

Room Tip: Go for 208.....great view and king size bed.

Dear Yvonne,

Thank you for your kind lovely review of Actons of Kinsale following your recent stay with us. The charm of the old building is that all our rooms are different and while some are larger than others we find lots of repeat guests have their own personal favourites. Next time your coming to stay with us remember to request your favourite at reservations stage and we'll reserve it for you.

Kind regards,

We stayed in actons for two nights and thoroughly enjoyed it. There are several hotels to choose from but this is the most central and has great views of the harbour. The staff are amazing & the leisure centre is worth a visit for the whirlpool. The room was quiet which is something I always appreciate. We had a lovely dinner in the hotel but with hindsight I would probably not do this next time as there are so many great places to eat in the village, fishy fishy café is almost next to the hotel :)

As an American traveling abroad- not so keen on B&B however this hotel/ motel was nice. The gym and location was perfect. The town is within walking distance. The front desk reception was amazing. They should add an additional morning person due to incoming reservations.

Overall good place to stay 1/2 nights for a traveller.

Room Tip: Get a sea view.

We stayed three nights at Actons. We found it a bit noisy. Our room faced the rear street and the revellers seemed to go home this way. There was also quite a lot of noise internally, so maybe thin walls(?). Then the lift broke and we could hear suitcases bumping up and down the stairs. The breakfast service was quite slow but we were on holidays, I guess. We ate in the restaurant one night and we were disappointed that we did. The room was fairly small. There is a large car park but it is shared with their fitness centre, which caters to non residents of the hotel, so you have to be lucky to get a park. The staff were charming and helpful and Kinsale itself is a delight.

Room Tip: Pay more and get a room facing the front, that is the harbour, if you want to sleep well.

Dear Sydney,

Thank you for taking the time to write a review following your recent stay at Actons of Kinsale. We're sorry that you didn't enjoy your stay with us and that found the room to be noisy. While the back rooms are street facing, they do have triple glazing which usually cancels out any street noise. I hope your experience did not take too much from your enjoyment of our beautiful town of Kinsale.

Yours sincerely,

Breda Keane Shortt

First of all, don't be put off by the 3 star rating because this hotel does not deserve its 3 star rating! The location is amazing, the rooms are gorgeous and the beds are so comfortable. I would highly recommend getting a harbour room view! The breakfast is amazing, the selection is fantastic and the breakfast room is spacious and pleasant!
Make sure to visit the seafood restaurant Fishy Fishy which is just a 3 minute walk away!

Room Tip: Harbour view room is a must!

Stayed overnight in this beautifully restored old hotel. Our room had an unrivalled Harbour view which we thoroughly enjoyed on what was a lovely summer evening. The room itself was very comfortable, and the bed too, the shower excellent. However I believe that the Hotel is let -down by its breakfast. The quality of the ingredients used, in my opinion , is very poor, the bacon & sausages especially. This is a pity, especially in an area that has so many excellent fresh food producers. Even the Buffet Table was lack-lustre. Because the Hotel is so new perhaps this important area has merely been over-looked. Will return soon to find out!

Room Tip: Harbour -view Rooms are amazing.
