Wow. What can I say. Great staff, great room and most importantly great breakfast. This was the first place we stayed on our latest trip to Ireland. Room was very comfortable. They have a car park. In Kinsale this is big plus. Very tight streets. Food was fantastic. Great start to your day. Highly recommended.

Spent two delightful nights. Rooms are well appointed and extremely comfortable. Breakfast was fresh with excellent variety. We enjoyed the afternoon tea as well. Just 3 minutes from the middle of town. But our hosts made the stay so special. They guided us to local restaurants and points of interest. Noreen and her daughter, Nora, were helpful at every turn...

One of the prettiest and well-kept inns we stayed during our trip. Located in the heart of Kinsale, it was a great choice to just leave the car behind for a while and just explore the town after a few days of driving. The room is extremely comfortable and the attention to detail on the property’s decoration is surprising. If...

We loved our stay at the Old Presbytery. We went there for our honeymoon and were surprised to find that they had gifted us a box of delicious Irish chocolates. The high tea is highly recommended and the breakfast was to die for. The room was exceptionally clean and well appointed. The staff was attentive and helpful in making recommandations....

We stayed here for a night and to call it a B and B is an understatement. It really is more like a boutique hotel. The bedrooms are well appointed, clean modern and all accessories you would except in a hotel, hair drier shampoo tea coffee etc. the breakfast is the best I have ever had, better than any five...

We were expecting a lot from The Old Presbytery. To say that we were not disappointed, simply does not do. Noreen and Phillip McEvoy make everyone feel at home. No detail is left to chance and everything is done to make one's stay a wonderful experience. The Irish breakfast may be the best anywhere in the Emerald Isle; the afternoon...

Had a lovely stay - the hotel is very central, the staff were so friendly and welcoming and could not do enough for you. I stayed in room 6 and it had its own balcony with a nice seating area outside. I can't fault it as a place to stay in Kinsale and would def stay there again.

We stayed here only 1 night but would have loved to stay longer. We stayed in a suite on the top floor with breath-taking views of the harbor. A bit difficult to get our luggage up there but still worth the effort ( we just should have packed less :) We were given wonderful advice about what to do and...
