“Truly enjoyable”

The White House Pub
Ranked #5 of 11 Nightlife in Kinsale
Attraction details
Reviewed 3 August 2012

We ventured into the White House, a popular pub, restaurant and hotel, for an evening meal, choosing from the €20 (two courses) or €25 (three course) meals. The food was well prepared and very flavoursome. In fact, so much so that we returned the following evening, too. The added bonus on the return visit was that half way through the meal some local musicians and singers arrived and performed Irish songs and music which was truly delightful. One of the 'locals' was invited to sing, which he did with gusto and feeling. All in all, for our last night in Co Cork it was truly enjoyable and just right!

We were passing thru and stopped at this pub to have a drink of beer and some good Irish food. What an absolutely fabulous find this place is. The food is outstanding and the staff/owners were the friendliest in all of Ireland. If we ever come back to Ireland, we would make a special trip to be able to enjoy this truly gem of a find.

The White House is situated right in the centre of Kinsale. It has a lovely bar and excellent restaurant. You can also stay there. I haven't seen the rooms, but if the rest of the place is anything to go by, they should be very comfortable indeed. The food is delicious and the atmosphere is always warm and welcoming. Just the spot for a drink and a bit of dinner after a brisk walk on a chilly day! I would love to stay there some time, just to see the rooms and sample the breakfast. If you are visiting Kinsale or staying in the area, make sure you make a night (or afternoon) of it in The White House.

We were a little skeptical when we ordered, but we both had Cajun cod and found it was really tasty.

The venue is well appointed and has a feeling of care and attention to details however the food in our experience was awful
One meal was served burnt and returned
The other three was universally agreed upon as tasteless and bland - it comes to something when the garnish was the most satisfactory.
Very disappointed given the reputation of Kinsale as the gourmet capitol of Ireland
Given the price the feeling was all fur coat and no knickers.
Also worth bearing in mind there are no toilet facilities available for those who use wheel chairs.
