Reviewed 6 April 2014

Arrived very late for our first night stay, Valerie was more than accommodating in getting us settled into our rooms. Her sweet gesture for ensuring we would be comfortable and able to get rest. The home was beautifully decorated with spacious rooms for the guest. Free wifi was offered and a spacious tastefully decorated sitting room was available for the guest. Valerie and Brain worked together as a team in providing us with wonderful full Irish breakfast that was delicious to the palate. Their eagerness in helping us decide on an agenda made for an easy visit to their lovely town of Kinsale, Ireland.

Woodlands House was a real find! The house itself is beautiful and our room (first floor, facing the backyard) was lovely. It was spacious, nicely decorated, and had a well-maintained feel about it. The hosts, Valerie and Brian, were very pleasant, cordial and helpful. The breakfasts were cooked to order and consisted of a several choices, which was nice. The location provided a nice view of the ocean, although it was a little distant. This was my favorite place to stay during our 10-day trip to Ireland. The town of Kinsale, itself, is cute and quaint, with terrific restaurants. Do yourself a favor and visit Kinsale and stay at Woodlands House - you won't be sorry!

Room Tip: It's just a short walk into town, however, the b&b is located at the top of a hill, so if yo...

We enjoyed our stay here. The hosts are very friendly and helpful. The house is beautiful and nicely decorated, clean and very well maintained. Our room was large and comfortable with a great view of the river. Breakfast was very good but choices are a little limited. It is a short walk to town. The town is compact with lots of places to eat and a good size grocery store that is open late. Definitely recommend this B&B.

Room Tip: We had room 3 in the front which is large and has a great view! Don't know anything about the o...

We found this delightful and charming B&B on our honeymoon. With no plans, we just found places to stay as we made our way around Ireland, and this didn't disappoint. The owners were very friendly and polite. Gave us the front room with water views, it was stunning. Breakfast was so delightful and filling, you won't leave hungry! We highly recommend sto add this place to your stay!! A+

Nice BnB home located up the hill from the main city. If you are comfortable with walking 15 minutes to and from the city, this is a great BnB. We enjoyed the walk because Kinsale is so beautiful. Our rooms were very clean and the BnB was quiet. The owners were very organized and professional.

Beautifully appointed upmarket B&B. Efficient, friendly service and an excellent breakfast. Excellent views over the town and the bay. Rooms specious and well laid out. We only stayed one night but next time we will use it as a base for some touring. The town itself is worth spending some time in as well with lots of bars, shops and good restaurants.

Room Tip: Rooms at the front have the view over the town and bay which is well worth it.
