I make at least one visit a year to the Kinsale hotel and I’m never disappointed. This year, despite Covid challenges, the staff were just as friendly and helpful, the food was great and the room was spotless and comfortable. I’ll be booking back in for my 2021 trip soon!

We had a fabulous time at Kinsale Hotel & Spa. The staff are fantastic & the hotel is extremely clean. The grounds around the hotel are well kept & it was such a pleasant stay. It would benefit the guests if Room Service was available perhaps. Also, although we are fully aware of the restrictions due to COVID-19, we unfortunately were unable to book into the pool as it was fully booked. This was very disappointing. But overall, we loved our getaway & will hopefully return in more normal times & benefit from the pool & spa. Thanks team!

Could not have been happier with our evening last night. The food was to die for, the atmosphere was lovely, Conor, Paul and Brett were fantastic. The woman for breakfast was a sweetheart. The place was absolutely spotless. Room was amazing and comfortable. Alison is extremely good at what she does 😊. The whole experience was just outstanding. Will definitely be back.

James went above and beyond for my family and I. Such great banter, he is an asset to the hotel, and dare I say, a highlight of the stay overall. The food was also delicious, in particular, the cauliflower wings, and the warm brownie.

I had the chicken ceasar as a main and it was very small. Kids pizza was also very small fine for a 3 or 4 year old but not for a 8 or 9 year old. Burger was lovely and the chips too.
