I stayed in Kinsale for three days on a golf vacation. The Blindgate house was awesome - excellent order from the menu breakfast (try the salmon and eggs), great bedding, excellent service and close access to town. As a runner I enjoyed the 5K run to the old Fort and back.

We are an older couple traveled with...

I have been staying in Kinsale for a week every fall for the past 20 years. Been fortunate to stay in some nice places, but Blindgate has everything that makes my stay very comfortable.
