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.

We had high hopes for this hotel because of their very nice website, but were a bit disappointed. The location is very convenient, in the middle of the town, but there is no parking. We had to park at the top of a very steep hill and then walk down with all of our luggage. It is an older building with no air conditioning, so we hijacked a fan from a vacant room for the warm evenings. We were on the street side so had to close our windows at night because of the noise. Room was average size for an older European building, but a bit dated with only the basics in the bathroom. Flat screen TV was nice though. Breakfast provided was your standard Irish breakfast. Will likely choose another location if we go back.

The two nights we stayed at the Old Bank House, the town of Kinsale decided to pave the street outside our window. However, the noise couldn't prevent us from enjoying this really charming place. Right outside our window was a street sign in Irish Gaelic ! The room was lovely, the hotel was in a great part of town, breakfast was wonderful and the management was friendly and accommodating. We enjoyed our stay very much.
