We arrived from Liscannor late and upon arrival were greeted by Noreen and she made us feel very welcome. She recommended a great restaurant that night that turned out to be a really great meal. The breakfast prepared by Philip was excellent so we opted to spend a second night at the The Old Presbytery B&B. We had the top...

Noreen greeted us with warmth and friendliness. We enjoyed meeting her little dog Scampi. Nice sized bedroom and bathroom and the bedroom included a sitting area with a love seat. Could've stayed comfortably in the room if I had to; quiet and tranquil. Breakfast was very good and I did not know it was prepared by Phillip, a professional chef...

We stayed here for a night last week and loved it. It's not cheap, but you get what you pay for. Noreen and Philip (and Scampi) were so welcoming. The room was lovely and the building itself is full of character. Throw in free afternoon tea or wine (no, really) and a hearty breakfast and you have a recipe for...

The Old Presbytery was the perfect place to stay in Kinsale. We were visiting for our honeymoon in October 2016, and they upgraded us to a different room. The location is perfect for exploring Kinsale-Everything is within walking distance. Breakfast was delicious- try the warm fruit crepes! The hosts were very nice and helpful with dining suggestions and directions. If...

We stayed 3 nights in Room #2A and really enjoyed our visit to Kinsale. It was one of our favorite places in Ireland. Nice harbor with beautiful sailboats. Take a harbor tour if the weather is nice. Our room was quite large with a large bathroom as well. We really enjoyed staying here. The B&B was located within walking distance...

This charming bed and breakfast, The Old Presbytery is very quaint and charming. It deserves its rating. It's very near the Desmond Castle on the hill and an easy walk down to town. There are several interesting sights to see on this hill and it's a quiet place for respite.

My large family stayed at the Old Presbytery and I loved it! The staff was so accommodating and went above and beyond to make sure we were all happy. Some of the family had already been there before, but it was my first time. The town of Kinsale is one that everyone should put on their list of things to...

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay here. We were given a complimentary upgrade to a beautiful room with a sunroom & large private balcony. The room was clean, elegantly furnished & comfortable. The breakfast in the charming breakfast room was delicious (especially the porridge). The owner was lovely & helpful & the proximity to pubs, shops & restaurants was ideal. There...
