We also had high hopes for this hotel because it sounded quaint and looked nice on the website. This is my fifth trip to Kinsale and a nice hotel room in Kinsale is hard to come by. We didn't realize that August 7th was the busiest day of the year for Kinsale with the bank holiday and Regatta. The location was, in the middle of the town, but there is no parking especially the busiest day of the year. It took me awhile, but I did find a spot on the street in front of the hotel. It is an older building with no air conditioning, but they did have a fan in the room. We were on the street side so had to close our windows at night because of the noise. The room was small compared with other rooms in Ireland especially for a family of four. Flat screen TV and bathroom was the only highlight. Breakfast provided was your standard Irish breakfast. It was a fun day in Kinsale with a lot of activities going on, but I would definitely choose another location if we go back.
