Pier House Bed and Breakfast
Ranked #8 of 53 Kinsale B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 16 September 2013

After an initial hiccup with our booking and it being resolved by Ann, we had a very comfortable 2 night stay. The venue is very well located in the centre of Kinsale and the rooms were very good size and quality. There is some street noise late at night in the room facing the back but nothing too terrible. A good breakfast is served in the nice dining room and having use of the garden to relax or for sundowners is a plus. Thanks Anne.

The B&B was excellently located, close to all facilities in Kinsale and right next door to a fantastic cafe- Dino's.
The host was warm and welcoming. The room was clean with comfortable beds. The grounds were lovely with places to sit and relax; allowing us time to just take in the atmosphere of being in such a lovely place. Then stepping through the gate we were right in the middle of the town.
Breakfast was really good, sustaining us for the busy day ahead.
We highly recommend Pier House.

We stayed 2 nights at the Pier House. We chose a room with a balcony and were pleased to look over the lovely garden. Room was big but bathroom very narrow, however impeccably clean. Ann was so welcoming and friendly and position of the guesthouse cannot be beaten in Kinsale. Right on the Marina yet behind a wall is this tranquil garden. We were able to use the gas barbeque and the little gazebo area one night as we wanted a break from restaurants. It was a lovely evening. I will return to this fabulous spot, my favourite on our whole trip around Ireland.

Room Tip: Garden facing rooms with balconies are best. Back rooms are just as nice but face a busy road with l...

Enjoyed a three night trip to the Cork region with girlfriends in July 2013, which was booked through McKinlay and Kidd. We spent only one night at the Pier House but would definitely return. The location is extremely central, the owner and staff were very friendly and helpful and the breakfast was really good. I have no hesitation in recommending the Pier House as an excellent place to stay when visitng Kinsale.
Just to add that we had a lovely dinner in Fishy Fishy restuarant and thoroughly enjoyed Don and Barry's historic stroll around the town.

I loved this B&B! I normally chose hotels over B&Bs, but I'll be reconsidering that after this visit. The B&B is ideally located, exactly in the centre of town. It has lovely gardens and a little decking area that you could sit out in. Ann was very friendly and welcoming when we arrived. Our room was not one with a balcony, but was still quite spacious and beautifully decorated. Everything was clean and fresh. Despite the windows overlooking the street, the noise from outside was not much of a distraction. Apart from that noise, we weren't bothered by anything else in terms of noise. The facilities are great for a B&B - there's a roof terrace where you can sit outside and enjoy the evening, a lounge with internet access and - my favourite - a wine station with ice buckets, glasses, ice and corkscrews. We bought a bottle of wine and let it chill in our room while we went out for dinner. When we came back, we had lovely cold white wine waiting for us.

The only area I felt was a little below my expectations was breakfast. I'd have liked a bigger selection from the continental options - there was just yoghurts and cereal. I'd have liked some pastries or cheese too.

Overall, we really enjoyed our stay and were very impressed with the B&B and its facilities.

Pier House B&B was absolutely fabulous!!!! You literally walk out the front door through the garden and out the gate into the heart of the town. The website photos do not do this property justice, it is gorgeous. The beds are comfortable, the showers are big with good water pressure. The rooms have plenty of space, there is nothing negative I can say!The owners are very friendly, warm and welcoming. Kinsale also has the best food and restaurants in Ireland next to Galway City. I highly recommend Pier House. Five stars is not enough...I give them 10!

Room Tip: Room 10 is huge and has a nice small private patio area.

Stayed at the Pier House last week for one night. Rooms were nicely decorated with a nice spacious bath that had a great shower. Breakfast was " just grand". The best part was the central location--wish we had stayed longer.
