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.

The Old Presbytery was FABULOUS!  We stayed in The Willow unit, which is on the ground floor.  The unit itself was charming, and the bed was hands down the most comfortable we had on the entire trip.  We also appreciated the ceiling fan in the room, which kept it from being stuffy (if we had been higher up we would have opened the windows at night).  Please note if you are looking for extra plugs, check behind the door to the bedroom!  The hosts were wonderful and were on hand to greet us upon arrival.  They do not offer breakfast but gave us many recommendations for breakfast places close by.  There is easy parking.  They have a charming elevated patio which we enjoyed sitting at one afternoon with a bottle of wine!  And the best thing is they have two precious dogs, who were more than happy to sit with us and visit.  The location is great but it is uphill the last bit coming from town.  Would absolutely stay there again if we were able to go back and would check some of the other units, which might be worth hauling the luggage upstairs!

Whenever we are in Kinsale we make sure we stay in the Old Presbytery. It is a real home away from home. Noreen and Philip are wonderful welcoming hosts who ensure that our every need is looked after. The attention to detail throughout the apartments is very high with very comfortable beds and fully equipped kitchens. We will return here again and again

Very high quality apartment right in the centre of Kinsale. Excellent facilities and a short stroll to restaurents, shops and bars. Very quiet - great for a good night sleep. Spotlessly clean and well organised for the requirements of Covid times. The hosts, philip & Noreen could not have been more friendly and helpful. We really enjoyed our stay and would happily return. A perfect quality spot for a staycation in these strange times. John & Anne

We are family of 4 - stayed 2 nights. This place is not a B&B anymore - all rooms converted to large apartments. We were lucky to find this luxurious apartment. Parking is onsite - very central location and priced very reasonably for Kinsale as it is an expensive place to visit. Both rooms were large with lage ensuites and kitchen/sitting area was perfect and very comfortable. Given the current Covid climate we felt very safe here and property is immaculate. Sanitiser is available on entering main door. Despite the storm we slept the night- and the street outside is not noisy. Thank you for providing us with such a safe haven - we would love to return if we are in Kinsale again.

Noreen and Philip run this gorgeous place to a very high standard whilst not losing the personal and homely touch. The accommodation is beautifully finished with amazing views over kinsale harbour and ample space for very good value being right in the centre of town. We’ve travelled to kinsale for 30 years and this was our first time staying here...we all agreed we won’t be going anywhere else going forward! It was perfect for the three couples and baby in our group spanning all age groups from 1 year to 75!

We have been visiting Kinsale and the Old Presbytery for @ 20 plus years. Why look anywhere else when you’ve found the best. Not able to avail of Philips Legendary Breakfasts we started the day a bit lighter. The Excellent apartments are Fully equipped and Kinsale has all the fine produce on hand. This was our first visit since the Change to Self catering. The living accommodation has been appointed to the same high standard of the bedrooms.

Our stay here was wonderful, it is such a unique place, full of history. We had a small balcony that we enjoyed as the evening was beautiful. The breakfast room was open to everyone and there were biscuits, tea and a wonderful coffee/espresso machine that I wish I could have taken home. If we every come back this way we would definitely stay again. The proprietors were welcoming, very nice and also a small car park so you didn't have to park in the street.
