San Antonio B&B is in central Kinsale, walking distance to everything, yet quiet for sleeping. It is located in a lovely 200 year old house that the host, Jimmie, grew up in. He has lovingly restored the home. It is tastefully decorated and is clean and uncluttered. Someone else commented that the rooms were simple and that's true, but they...

The location was very central in Kinsale with easy access to parking. Jimmie was a very welcoming and helpful host. He gave me lots of good tips of where to go and what to see. I had a very comfortable stay and would definitely recommend this B&B to anyone coming to this cute coastal town!

This is a wonderful B&B right in the heart of Kinsale. The owner, Jimmie, was SO welcoming and helpful. It is located on a quiet street just up from the heart of Kinsale and so everything is nearby but it's just that little bit away so it's quiet for sleeping. He gave us so many great recommendations for pubs and...

We couldn't have been more pleased with our stay at the Saint Antonio Bed & Breakfast. In terms of nuts and bolts, the room was comfortable, offered everything we needed, and was clean, no spectacular amenities, just a cozy functional room with character. The breakfast was brilliant, a full Irish breakfast with the option of porridge, alongside fresh bread, squeezed...

Great little B&B right in the middle of Kinsale. My husband and I stayed for two nights and had a large second floor room, which was clean and tidy. Jimmy was a fantastic host; friendly and informative.

I first stayed at San Antonio while visiting Ireland with my friend in 2007. Eight years later I returned with my boyfriend and Jimmie is still a great host! We had a lovely stay (clean, quiet rooms) and like last time the food was delicious and chatting with Jimmie was a blast. It was still hard to find, but that...
