After 5 nights camping in the wilds of Connemara, I had decided to treat myself to a hotel room for my last night in Ireland. Everything about it was perfect: the most comfortable bed, a wonderful shower room and the Old Presbytery itself is full of character. One detail which had helped me choose this particular hotel was the possibility... More

This former home for clergy is a unique B&B with an excellent location near the center of Kinsale. Noreen and her warm staff serve an excellent breakfast and offer a nice happy hour, and were more than happy to offer helpful suggestions for sightseeing and make bookings. There is no lift, so heavy bags might pose a problem. Our rooms... More

A fabulous place with a really nice atmosphere lovely hospitality. Specious room, clean and cosy. It's just in the center of the city, you can reach anything by walk. And the breakfast is the best a guest can get. We'll come back soon!

The room was spacious and the en suite was the nicest I'd seen in a B&B. The owners were very plesant and helpful. And the breakfasts were absolutely awesome. There was a special of a seafood medley I had the first morning which was incredible. I'd never had fresh seafood with my breakfast before but it was one of the... More

We had booked a deluxe king room for 2 nights. When we checked in, we were given a 2-story penthouse suite. The room had a spiral staircase, with 2 beds and 2 baths. We had a nice city view. Using the spiral staircase took some extra effort going up and down. You just had to minimize the number of trips... More

We loved everything about the Old Presbytery. Noreen and Phil were wonderful hosts, the room was very comfortable and clean, the breakfasts awesome, parking so handy, and there was easy walking to sites in Kinsale. As well as so many other goodies, Phil's scones were the best we had on our whole trip. Thank you Noreen and Phil
