Had a lovely boozy afternoon here, getting in some practice in readiness for St Patrick's day. Great atmosphere in the bar, where copious drinks were imbibed by our party. Pretty much a central destination in town and good meeting point.

My family and I have been to Ireland quite a few times and we came across this gem by mistake, and oh boy were we lucky!!!! The food the service and the drinks were just out of this world. My brother ordered the muscles and every muscle he ate we heard how they were just the best he had ever...

Hi all, We were down over the weekend and we started with a bevvie in The White House. To be honest, we should have come straight back here after our meal! Lesson learned. We did eventually make it back to the pub and were happily allowed sit in the waiting area of the restaurant as there were no seats in...

The staff, and specifically Rose, are incredibly helpful and sweet. We had traveled from the US to Ireland and had many issues along the way including two canceled flights resulting in a ten hour layover in LHR then a flight to SNN instead of ORK. By the time we got to Kinsale we were wrecked, only to find that the...

The Whitehouse Kinsal is a delightful B&B in a colorful town, centrally located with confident parking in the back. We did have a fair amount of rain but it did not slow us down. The town itself is a big sailing hub.

We stopped here because we wanted to sample the local fish. Oysters were a good starter but the mussels were spoiled by the sauce which contained far too much thyme or other herb. There were herb plants in the covered garden room (smokers allowed) and it felt as if the profilic thyme was being hurled into every dish. After reading...

Stayed two nights at the White House. Location is in the middle of town with parking in the back. Nice pub area and breakfasts were great. Friendly helpful staff including Michael and his twin. :) Room was clean and comfortable. Can get some street noise, but you're downtown. Wish we'd tried the restaurant in an evening.

Nice b&b right in the middle of Kinsale. We had a triple room which had plenty of space but was a bit noisy as it was overlooking a pub. Room was clean and comfortable.

On our 10 Day Tour of Ireland we were told by a friend here in Arizona that we had to stay at this hotel if we made it to Kinsale. We called and got a great rate. The hotel was clean fresh and nice with an attached Restaurant and Bar. On the walls were an ode to 9/11, New York...
