Gorgeous location and even better staff. We had been stuck in Kinsale town waiting for a taxi but the hotel accommodated us and got us out to the hotel in no time. Lovely staff, good food and an amazing room.

What a beautiful hotel . Each and every staff member was so accommodating, I have never met such helpful and friendly staff. My husband and I stopped off with our young baby for food, Each staff member was so welcoming. The food was very nice. It was lovely to see an Indian wedding there at the time . We will definitely be back for a stay next time.

Situated a short drive from the main town of Kinsale, lovely welcome on arrival. We where guest at a wedding for the night. Beautiful display for wedding reception & drinks reception . Staff are friendly. Lovely meal served at the wedding. Night security man was very aggressive towards us at the end of the night where I had to ask him to remove himself from where we were due to his anger towards us. That behaviour needs to be addressed with him. Lovely family room with views overlooking a lovely waterfall. Views throughout the hotel are beautiful some with ocean views. Breakfast was included and had plenty of fresh options. I’ve stayed here before and would like to return. They have a spa but we went to the local beach for a morning after swim Lovely stay and a beautiful wedding venue

Dear jasminecora, It is always a big privilege and pleasure to be part of someone's special day and our team works tirelessly before and during the event to assure it is indeed perfect. That is why it is such a pleasure to hear a positive feedback and me and all the staff deeply appreciate it. The night team sometimes have to be stricter to assure everyone's safety especially when alcohol is involved and the team is always very professional but we will surely follow up. Kind regards Peter Zemek Front Office Manager

Just back from great night in hotel for a wedding. The location and setting is very nice. The excellent service commenced on entering and being welcomed by the friendly staff at reception especially Heidi. Check in was exemplary and efficient. Big Immaculate room was appreciated. The food at the wedding and at breakfast is top class.

We spent 2 nights at the Kinsale Hotel & Spa We enjoyed our time there, the pool was lovely, food was great, the service from the staff was very . But I must mention a young man named Josh, who worked in the bar and restaurant, he was most accomodating, nothing was to much trouble, his manner was polite and a very pleasant person, the hotel is very lucky to have someone like this work there.... hold onto him, give him a promotion, it’s very rare these days to get staff like that😀
