This was a very charming B&B. The views of the sea were very welcoming. As innkeepers we tend to be critical and were pleased to see cleanliness and enjoy comfort. We would return again when visiting Ireland and recommend it to others.

After reading the many glowing reviews on Tripadvisor, we were more than a little disappointed when we arrived at the Pier House. While our room and our sons' room were decorated very stylishly, the beds were rock hard and the duvet was comically heavy ("is it filled with gold ingots?" I joked). It was warm in the room, however, we...

Great B&B in Kinsale! Ann the owner is fantastic and a great help! Perfect location in the middle of a cute seaside town in Ireland. The room was great, clean. Tiny bathrooms, but which ones are not in Europe. A little reading nook, wine room, and patio. Breakfast was delicious.

Clean, modern art on wall, quiet. Thoughtful owner. Great location, walking distance to stores & restaurants. Our room had small balcony that was nice. Would like to go back. Breakfast included. Free, safe parking across street. Short drive to Cork yet on water/harbor .

Great location for exploring Irish, south coast town. Free parking. Hardworking owner provided clean & friendly setting for our adult family, along with great Irish breakfast. We hiked to both forts in Kinsale which takes about 45 minutes walk each way.

I stayed here for two nights with two girlfriends. Ann was just wonderful - very welcoming and her little Westie Toby was also a friendly greeter. Ann helped us carry our luggage up the stairs and then recommended restaurants and entertainment to us before leaving us for the evening. She knew exactly what she was talking about! Our room ended...
