Kinsale is a beautiful place; Woodlands House gives you peace and tranquility with a short walk downhill into town. Valerie and Brian are excellent and interested hosts who make one feel at home. The accommodation is excellent and the choice for breakfast tantalising. We much enjoyed our stay, Malcolm

My girlfriend and I stayed at the Woodlands Hotel for 2 nights in August whilst attending the wedding of a friend in Kinsale. We would highly recommend this charming b&b; the rooms were simple but immaculately maintained and very comfortable, the cooked breakfast was delicious, and the location was convenient. But what made the Woodlands stand out was the warm...

This is a beautiful B&B just a short walk outside Kinsale, the girl in the tourist office said a 8 minute walk from downtown but it's more like 12, walking into to town is downhill and lovely walking back to the property could be difficult if you have mobility issues but the cabs in the area are plentiful and friendly...

Spotless B&B in Kinsale. Located on a hill with fabulous views over lovely village of Kinsale. The rooms were large and comfortable. Breakfast was very good. Free use of computer upstairs on the landing. Lots of parking in the front.

Our family of four enjoyed a short stay here last week. House is very convenient to restaurants and attractions. The owners, Valerie and Brian were very hospitable and "child friendly". They provided a wonderful breakfast and could not do enough to help out with details about the town's attractions and ways of getting to them. The house is also nicely...

My family recently visited Kinsale as part of a two week tour around Ireland. We loved the country and particularly enjoyed our stay in Kinsale. We decided to spend our nights in local B&B’s, primarily for convenience and to experience the renowned Irish hospitality. We were so pleased that we did. We stayed in about 10 B&B’s over the two...

We rolled into Kinsale in the middle of the afternoon on a holiday weekend and were able to book the last available room. It was wonderful! The Woodlands House is very close to town center and after a short walk we found ourselves surrounded with restaurants, pubs and shops. John and Valerie were great hosts and the locals were very...

We loved our short stay in Kinsale. The Woodlands House is a great location for walking into town for dinner and entertainment, and not having to worry about driving back.
