We have just got back from staying with Philip and Noreen at the Old Presbytery in Kinsale over Easter. Again a fantastic stay in beautifully appointed rooms full of old world charm. These guys can't do enough for you, always offering to book a restaurant or taxi or to offer advice on the surrounding area. We had the misfortune of...

.... and Noreen and Phillip were the consummate hosts, so warm and friendly. It was so nice to have a place to park, wine and cheese upon arrival and a truly delicious breakfast. Clean, beyond clean. And so beautifully decorated.

We had a great weekend break in this delightful house for our wedding anniversary . We were very well fed and generally spoiled by Philip and Noreen. The room was perfect and complimentary afternoon 'tea' very much appreciated. We hope to be back very soon.

Kinsale was a lovely town, rich with history and character. The Old Presbytery was perfect. The owners Noreen and Phillip were very helpful and pleasant. The place was clean and quiet, the rooms quite spacious. The view we had in our room was breathtaking. The food was excellent and we couldn't have asked for more. Parking was just so easy...

My husband and I went to Kinsale for a night over the Kinsale Jazz Festival weekend and stayed in this splendid guesthouse owned and run by Noreen and Philip McEvoy. It was most luxurious and very tastefully decorated. The breakfast was out of this world with plenty of variety. The town was buzzing with tourists. Overall it was a wonderful...

If you're laying out a motor tour of Ireland, include a two night stay in Kinsale. One night was not enough to assimilate into the soul of the town. In our weeklong tour of the Emerald Isle, Kinsale was our favorite stop with its quaint town, plenty to do, and several authentic pubs with Irish music in the evening (just...

We were in Kinsale for just one night ("more's the pity") in October and we stayed at the pretty Old Presbytery. The place is very sweet and well-maintained and cared for.
