Ultra clean and comfortable, a geat base from which to explore the town of Kinsale (walk everywhere) or for day trips out into the countryside. Brian says he is second in command but does a good job of masterfully interviewing you over b'fst and assuring you have the benefit of his area knwoledge for your next outing.

When Valerie waited up till 11:30 PM for us as we were delayed and greeted us so warmly and graciously that said everything. She and Brian made us feel totally at home in their lovely place, so warmly and artistically decorated. Everything about our stay there was perfect, the location, the hospitality, the food and the rooms. I would definitely... More

Immaculate and pleasant owners! Big rugby game was on, they welcomed us into the front living room with a roaring fire (dreary day) and tea to get our rugby fix. We loved the breakfast bread so much they shared the recipe. Stayed twice and continue to recommend to friends.

I recently organized a trip for my parents, mother-in-law, sister, brother-in-law, husband and myself. This was a lovely bed and breakfast. The owners were very accommodating. They were able to make dietary arrangements for my sister with a gluten allergy and my feather allergy. It was clean and a pleasant walk to the town.

We stayed in Ireland for two weeks on our holiday and stayed in 4 B&Bs. This was the most beautiful. We were warmly greeted by the owner who offered us tea and showed us around.

This was the 2nd stop on our Ireland trip. We spent two nights and found Woodlands House to cozy and comfortable, as well as being clean and beautifully decorated. It was also the perfect distance from town (a 15 minute walk down the hill), which allowed us to leave the car and explore on foot, but it was close enough... More

We stayed 2 nights with our Australian friends in this well appointed, comfortable B & B. We had separate rooms which were beautifully decorated, clean and most comfortable. The breakfast offerings were ample and made to order. The location, on a hill above the town of Kinsale, was quiet and offered a lovely view. Highly recommend!
