Reviewed 1 July 2013

We loved having breakfast here. The food was delicious, but what we really enjoyed was the way Tom and Chrissie interacted with us throughout the meal. We got in late and didn't have any cell service to call and let them know. I think they were surprised to see us as they assumed we were a no show. We were on the third floor which is a little bit of a climb, but the rooms were clean and comfortable. Kinsale was difficult to navigate by car, but an enjoyable city to walk around. Location was fabulous once we found it. Chrissie came out and showed us where to park our car. Lily the dog was very sweet and child friendly.

Our dream is now to return here with our children and grandchildren and take over the place. Rooms are cozy and comfortable. Tom and Chrissie both give great tour and restaurant recommendations. Chrissie's scones at breakfast are to die for. The ambiance is exactly what we were looking for in Ireland. Ireland should award Tom and Chrissie a PR medal. What great representatives they are for a culture!

Chrissie and Tom are fabulous hosts. We were treated like family and warmed by the shared stories and laughter. Our room was lovely, and quiet; breakfast was great and we loved being in the heart of their home while dining.
We hope to be able to return soon and often.

Room Tip: Make your reservation early!

Chrissie and Tom treated us and the other guests like visiting friends and relatives rather than like paying customers. We have established a life-long connection with them. The room was pleasant and quiet, and breakfast was the best we had in Ireland. It was a wonderful and varied spread. Chrissie's homemade scones and brown bread were memorable. We plan to return.

Chrisse and Tom are now our adopted family. We could not have asked for a better more
Comfortable and fun place to spend 3 days. Chrisse renamed me Sean. I just loved them both. The breakfast spread is unbelievable!!!

This was our favorite B&B from our trip through the British Isles. Tom and Chrissy were so warm and welcoming. Chrissy was funny and loving, our adopted mother away from home. The salmon and eggs breakfast with the homemade bread and scones and Tom's honey was fantastic!!!! Our room was clean with a spacious bathroom. We only stayed two nights, but wished we had stayed longer!
