I have just returned from a wonderful stay at this property. My son & I stayed in the self-catering annexe for over a week. The apartment was beautifully furnished with very comfortable beds, a fabulous shower room, and a kitchen area that had everything you could possibly need. The hosts were lovely people who did not bother you but who couldn’t do enough for you if you asked for anything. The property was in the country just outside Kinsale but with a beautiful scenic walk into Kinsale and two of the best pubs, The Spaniard & The Bulman. After many visits to Kinsale over the past 15 years, this was the best place I have stayed. Overall, I cannot fault Kilkaw House & cannot wait to return.

Myself and my partner stayed in the self catering apartment for one night. We loved it, it's decorated to a high standard and the bed is super comfortable. It's so quiet, with beautiful views over the landscaped gardens yes only two minutes drive from Kinsale. Marion and Andy are super hosts. They were very warm and welcoming. They were always on hand to answer any questions. We were only sorry we couldn't stay longer. We'd love to return soon.

Myself and my partner stayed at the annex in Kilcaw House in October 2018 for three nights when the jazz festival was on. Everything was absolutely brilliant. The apartment itself was immaculate - the bed was huge and so comfy and the shower was amazing! It felt really modern and homey - we were actually so impressed we took pictures!! We were able to stroll down and back to Kinsale every day, catching stunning views of the harbour both in the day and night. The weather was incredible so we were very lucky - but even in the rain Kinsale would be a great place to spend the weekend. Overall it was a brilliant way to spend our time in Kinsale - will definitely be back!

Marian and Andy are the most gracious hosts we ever had. The apartment we rented was brand new and had everything we could possibly need. The kitchen was fully equipped, which was great because it's nice to make your own meals sometimes when traveling as eating out for every meal becomes quite expensive. We could cook a big breakfast and that would take us through the day to an early dinner (with some mid-day snacking added in). The four of us (two teenagers and two adults) were completely comfortable. The king bed was such a nice change from the "full" or "double" beds we had been sleeping in at other stops in England and Ireland and was it ever comfortable. Each of the teens had their own bed, which were both in the huge bedroom but the teen bunk beds were tucked away in a corner nook so we really had plenty of room. The bathroom is wonderfully clean with all modern plumbing. It was such a pleasure to wake up and take a shower. (On a side note, the shower is handicap accessible with double glass doors and it could accommodate a wheelchair in the shower.) The location is perfect if you have a car. It is not in the town but a mere 2 minute drive down. There was enough parking when we were there so that was not an issue. Taxies can be challenging to get late in the evening. One night we got a ride into town as I didn't want to have to drive home ;-) When we called for a taxi at midnight in downtown Kinsale it was about an hour wait for its arrival. We were not the only family waiting for taxis so it appears that there is a small number of them in the area. It is possible to pre-book your return journey and there are also other independent taxi operators other than the two offices in town. We found that out later so either drive down or plan ahead. If it's daytime, you can walk! I mentioned how gracious our hosts were. We were arriving late from Dublin as we spent the better part of the day waiting for additional Aer Lingus flights from Manchester to deliver my wife's luggage. (The suitcase never arrived by the way and there will be a review of Aer Lingus soon, which I will link to with an update to this review.) As they knew it would be difficult for us to find a place to eat, they offered to book us a reservation at a restaurant in town for 21:30, which I'm sure they had to negotiate for as it was unconventionally late. Then, since my wife's luggage hadn't arrived and she was in her traveling clothes from England, Marian lent my wife some wrap around dresses she could wear into town so we could shop for new clothes. In the meantime, Marian even spent time on the phone with Aer Lingus trying to get updates on our luggage while we were touring Kinsale. Kinsale is an absolutely gorgeous town (see pictures) [town pictures to be inserted later] and the Kilcaw house is a wonderful respite for travelers seeking some peace and quiet in a very relaxing atmosphere. Thank you, Marian and Andy, for such a wonderful stay. We will be back someday. :-)

The reservations were very easy to make online with the proprietor. He offered to make dinner reservations for us in town, as we were traveling in July and they are hard to come by otherwise. We did have difficulty finding the B&B, because we went into town and the roads are EXTREMELY narrow. We had a very difficult time navigating the roads. I tried calling both the mobile phone number and the landline number and finally got the son on the line. He did a wonderful job of figuring out where we were located and talking us through getting us to them. The view from the B&B was lovely and the room was large. It was suggested that we take the walking path into Kenmare (instead of driving again) and Marian walked us to the end of their property and showed us how to get to the path. We walked at a pretty good pace, but it still took us about 30 minutes to walk to the town and once the path ends it is a bit difficult to find how to get "into" the town. After an evening in town and a nice dinner, we took a very short cab ride back to the B&B. The breakfast was very enjoyable and they will make it to order, but did seem a little disorganized.

"Hi sir the heat in our rooms seems to be off, can you turn it on?" -"Yes we didn't realize you are back, we'll switch it on for a few hours until we go to bed" "You can't keep it on all night!?" Welcome to Ireland. Andrew welcomed us to Kilcaw House and showed us to our rooms. The two en suite rooms were clean and inviting. The only downside was the luke warm shower water and heater that took hours to warm up the room. Once we told Andrew about the water, he turned the temperature up so we were able to take warmer showers in the morning. Breakfast consisted of fresh fruit, croissants and full irish. Andrew and his wife, Marian, were helpful in giving restaurant suggestions (Fishy Fishy) and places to visit. The location is quiet and peaceful, set a few minutes up the road from the main street. Easy to get to, comfortable and friendly staff- I would return.

We felt at home from the moment we arrived. Andrew, Marian and their delightful family are superb hosts. We loved the quality of the bedlinen, the size of the rooms and the spotless shower rooms. Breakfasts were freshly made to order and catered for individual needs, including the fussy coffee drinker. Local dining and "must see" recommendations for the area were much appreciated

When I tried to reserve rooms at Kilcaw House, Andrew made a point of making sure I knew the property was undergoing some renovations. He assured me the work would not disturb us but wanted to me to make our decision with complete information. We decided to go ahead and reserve two rooms and I'm glad we did. The rooms were well equipped and clean. The bath was bright with a good sized shower. I noticed reflective vests in the closet which we never used but later in our trip, I was wishing all hosts were as thoughtful to include them for increased safety when walking the dark roads in the morning or night. Andrew provided a map and help with directions and restaurant suggestions. Marian was a gracious hostess the next morning and served us a delicious breakfast. We spent the next day in Kinsale and while we didn't end up eating where Andrew had made dinner reservations, we did take his suggestion for a drink at the restaurant where we did dine which was a highlight of our meal. Upon our return to the house that night, we had a wonderful talk with Marian in the common sitting area, learning of their plans to make Kilcaw House even more inviting. I wish them the best as they move forward and encourage anyone who wants comfortable lodging with gracious hosts within a easy walk to lovely Kinsale to consider Kilcaw House.

The breakfast at Kilcaw House is so tasty and high quality, like in a hotel. The beds and linen really comfortable and fresh. Marion and Andy know the area very well and would advise you about where to go for a dinner in Kinsale. I highly recommend that B&B. The quality of everything is outstanding! Thank you
