This B&B was fantastic - the best we stayed in during our 10-day Ireland adventure! Margo and Donny, the owners, were charming and effervescent. They were superb hosts, their home is spacious, modern and beautiful, and we would stay here again without a doubt.
The location on a hill overlooking the harbor and town offers free parking and stunning views. However, it's a bit of a walk to town so we chose to drive to attractions in Kinsale and surroundings.
The room was bright, clean, large, and well-decorated. The view from the double windows in our room was postcard-perfect. And the bathroom was stellar -- large, clean, well-appointed.
Breakfast was delicious both days -- we recommend the crepes! The full Irish breakfast is good as well, if you're hungry enough for that kind of thing. On our last morning there, when the owners learned we were rushing out to catch a flight, they very quickly made us crepes and got us on our way.
The price was on the higher end of what we paid for B&Bs, but we felt that it was well worth it. The overall quality of the experience was a cut above the rest. It didn't hurt that the sun finally came out in Kinsale, after a week of clouds, rain, fog, mist, and bone-chilling temperatures (this was in August, all over Ireland).
Note on Kinsale: weekend traffic is insane, so you may wish to leave your car at the B&B or parked in the free spaces along the harbour toward the Spaniard and Charles Fort. We found Thursday night in town to be low-key and relaxing, but by Friday afternoon, the weekend crowds were pouring in. Dermot Ryan's history walking tour was a lot of fun. Charles Fort is a must-visit (take the free guided tour) but the Kinsale Harbour Cruise is not worth the money.
