“Very reasonable and the best possible location”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 May 2010

We stayed here Saturday night of the bank holiday weekend. The Kinsale Sevens was on so the town was packed and the pubs and streets full at night. However, even though we had a street view room we didn't hear a sound and slept all night.

The rate is great value - €30 pps room only. One of the only places it would seem that don't put up the prices the weekend that's in it. As the rate suggests the hotel is very basic. However, it is clean, the staff were very friendly and the location couldn't be better. You really are in the town centre if you stay here. We stayed in room one. We had a big room with comfy bed. The bathroom was huge but very old and we had to go through a little corridor to get to it but it was just for our use only.

The Kinsale Arms only does room only. There is a cafe underneath but we chose to eat breakfast in the cafe beside The Blue Haven which is only steps away.

We would stay here again. Not luxurious but then we're hardly in our room when we visit Kinsale

We were very disappointed with Kinsale Arms. I can not comment on the actual ammenities as we never saw them. We made reservations months ago as the place came so highly recommended and when we showed up at thier door we were informed they had "forgotten" about us and that they were closed for renovations. We would have appreciated being informed before driving the 2 hour drive to Kinsale. As the sun was setting we set out walking to find other accomodations. We were able to secure a room for the night, however, it was very disappointing. For someone that is so highly recommended, we expected better than to be "forgotten".

Stayed March 2010, travelled with family
