Stayed in Friars Lodge over St. Patrick's weekend with my family. We booked 6 rooms. Each room was huge, warm and very clean. Staff were welcoming and friendly and nothing was any bother. Breakfast was delicious and plentiful.
It was very quiet and has a guest carpark to the back that is a bonus as Friars lodge is situated on a little, narrow street up a small hill from the hustle and bustle of the beautiful Kinsale town.
We dealt with Maureen prior to our visit and nothing was any bother.
Mary was also very helpful. The rooms are reasonably priced and it is well worth a stay.
I would stay here again if I return to Kinsale.

I liked the location up on a hill away from tourists. It's easy walking distance from downtown, even with luggage. It's near the Desmond Castle and churches. The big gold lettering in the side of the building attracted me when I was searching for a hotel off the beaten path.

We stayed 2 nights at Friars Lodge. Pulled in to town and called a few places, and we liked the sound of Mary's voice when we spoke with her and we were right! She gave us a key to look at the room... a large room with sitting area and 2 beds...we were sold!
Friars is a street away from downtown and right next door to a lovely old church. There is an elevator,on site free parking, wifi, and the breakfast is wonderful. Mary will take good care of you! Great value.

Myself and my other half stayed here for the Jazz festival in 2015 and loved the place so much we decided to come back again this year and bring our two friends. It's a lovely place to stay, the rooms are huge and clean and have all of the facilities you could possibly need including an iron and ironing board in the rooms, toiletries, hairdryer, tea and coffee. The beds are so comfortable and the breakfast is lovely, they offer fresh catch of the day and other lovely stuff. It's just up the hill from the town so you're just a short stroll away and it's nice and peaceful so you'll have a nice sleep. Couldn't not recommend this place enough.

We stayed at the Friar's Lodge two nights. We had a large room with two queen beds (only needed and used one). It is modern, has an elevator, good bathroom and comfortable sitting chairs. The breakfast room is inviting and the waitresses do a good job getting the meals out. They have brandy in the lobby in the evening. That's a nice touch. Parking is readily available and easy to access. Kinsale streets are confusing and you might have trouble finding the hotel.
