My husband and I were far from impressed by Kinsale but we LOVED staying at the Blue Horizon. It is about 10 minutes outside of Kinsale in Garrettstown and is a pub and B&B. We spent most of our nights hanging out with the locals in the pub at the B&B who were extremely friendly. We had a great time. The view is breathtaking and there is a nice walk along the ocean that leads right up to the B&B. The owners, Mary and Jimmy, and their daughter Alice who tended the bar were SO friendly and personable. We enjoyed our stay immensely. The only small issue we had was that the winds were very high on the first night of our stay and it was a little difficult to get to sleep. No fault of the owners, Ireland is just windy :)
Ask for a room on the first floor, as if winds are high, the 2nd floor is much nosier.
