“Refurbished to perfection”
Reviewed 4 December 2013

My wife and I stayed here from the 15th to the 17th of November for our wedding anniversary. We had an absolutely perfect stay and have nothing but praise for this hotel and it's staff. The leisure centre is superb and the renovations have made it state of the art. We had our wedding here back in 1990 and the hotel is still one of my favourites. Sometimes you don't appreciate what's on your doorstep until you revisit: this hotel is a diamond twinkling in magnificent Kinsale. Couldn't recommend it enough!

Lovely hotel. Rooms very spacious and clean. Ask for a sea view for breathtaking scenery of Kinsale Harbour. the salmon omelettes at breakfast are to die for. It's very central for all bars and amenities. Could not fault this hotel in anyway and would definitely go back

Had a great night on Saturday night in Actons. The hotel is beautiful, still retaining some old character while still being modern and comfortable. The staff are really friendly, the breakfast is excellent and the beds are VERY comfortable.

Kinsale is a lovely town, and Actons is a couple of minutes walk to all the pubs and bars.

We really enjoyed ourselves.

Thanks for the lovely weekend - keep up the good work!

Room Tip: Try to get a room at the front, the view in the morning is beautiful. Also, you can extend your chec...

Sadly we only had the one night at Actons during our 25th anniversary Ireland road trip. The hotel is in a fantastic location on the edge of the bay with stunning views. The hotel is spotlessly clean with an enormous comfortable bed and pillows. We did not dine in the hotel but breakfast was excellent. All in all I would recommend the Actons to everyone. We did dine at the Whitehouse which also was excellent.

I could not be more pleased with our recent stay at Acton's. They have everything you need and want, but with a friendly local non-corporate atmosphere. The staff was great. Highly recommended. Bed was wonderful, eggs benedict for breakfast, and a hot tub in the spas

Room Tip: look for harbor facing room on the third floor
