Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

Hotel's Favourite
I mistakenly booked my elderly parents in for a week later than planned, discovered by my Mum the night before they were leaving. Diane could not have been more helpful in changing the booking. What a lovely experience with something that made me feel a bit sick, seeing as it was my parents' 1st trip after lockdown. Thank you Diane!

For our first stay in Actons we booked a sea view room . The room was compact , clean and comfortable and did have a good sea view. Breakfast was average , the scrambled egg and salmon was a little dry. A favourite place of ours to visit at this hotel is the sunny outside terrace with its comfortable wicker chairs . We enjoyed our lunch here served by a very cheerful and friendly English lady. The pool area is clean and worth a visit and the location of the hotel is excellent . We enjoyed our first visit.

Just home from a wonderful three night break in Actons Hotel, and it once again was bang on the money. Our favourite hotel in Ireland, with terrific facilities, and very helpful and pleasant staff. In a lovely location, within a short walk of the very picturesque Kinsale town. So many options for a very good meal out. Kinsale is wonderful, and Actons Hotel is simply the best.

A cheeky two night break in Kinsale and Actons didn't let us down. We only booked a basic room but it was plenty big enough, clean comfortable and quiet. Every member of staff was friendly and helpful. Especially Hayley in the fabulous spa/pool area. The breakfasts in Actons are amazing quality and the choice is vast. We had dinner in the bar/Bistro which was faultless. Thank you Actons, we will be back.

We had a lovely stay at Actons. Staff are friendly and very helpful. Our first night, we miss out on dinner since most place/kitchen closes at 9pm. But the hotel was very kind to whip up some sandwiches for us. Our room is great. Clean and very comfy. The hotel is walking distance to everything. Nice view of the water. Private carpark. Only reason I didn’t give 5 stars is because there was a wedding on our last night and the party kept going till morning hours. People are drunk singing and yelling very loud at 2:30 am not caring they’re in a hotel where people are asleep. Wish they were told to be respectful at least. Other than that, great stay!

Left this gorgeous hotel yesterday, after a wonderful couple of days with my husband and dad. Fantastic location overlooking the sea and so picturesque with all the sailboats. We had a fabulous room, which was huge, with this great view. Large modern bathroom with a great rain shower. For breakfast they had a breakfast bar with fruits, yoghurts, cereals, breads, pastries and juices. They also had a wide range of cooked breakfasts. Their porridge was gorgeous. Ate in Sidney's Restaurant one evening and the food was great there too. All in all a wonderful experience and Kinsale is beautiful. I would go back to both in a heartbeat.
